I love fall and I severely needed a new color but didn’t want to dye my hair. So, I tried my first stock lace front wig. I chose HairVivi because of all the reviews online.
I chose their “Serayah” 5.5 lace front wig. The color was cute and perfect for fall! I got several compliments on the hair color and the texture. The hair texture was very silky and held a curl. I chose the wig because I love the soft brown color and it went really well with my skin, especially for fall. As a woman of color, it can be difficult to find the right color for my skin tone: bronze, balayage, reds, etc…
Here are the pros and cons of the wig.
FYI: I love the packaging, very simple matte black box with a bow. Inside the box was the Brazilian hair wig, a rat tail comb, and two butterfly clips. The wig was well packaged.
HairVivi Wig ReviewHairVivi Pros:
The color matched my complexion and was very subtle.
The hair did not draw up or mat. I have not worn the hair for a long period of time.
The lace was bleached and almost matched my complexion.
The hairline was lightly plucked.
The size fit my head.
Wig smelled like the average bundle hair scent.
I honestly wanted the hairline to be plucked more. It did look very “wiggy.”
I would have love directions on how to create a seamless install. I was not able to pluck the hairline to my desire.
Overall the wig is super cute. I like their customer service and appreciated their fast delivery in 3-5 business days.
If you were born in the last 20 years you’ll know how iconic these movies’ hairstyles were and how many of our moms, aunties, and even ourselves emulated these looks.
Here are the Top 10 Iconic Black Movie Character Hairstyles, in no particular order.
1. Two Can Play That Game– Gabriel Union
Gabriel Union demolished this look with the quintessential sidechick baddie vibez aka “I’ll steal your man and he’ll buy me a Gucci purse.” Everyone has copied this style from Beyonce, Tinashe, etc…
2. Set it Off- Jada Pinkett – Smith and Queen Latifah
A cult classic that showcases us thorough and ready!
3. B.A.P.S – Halle Berry and Natalie Desselle
This movie was everything; from the long nails, vibrant colors , “hoochie” style and eye-catching hairstyles. The costume and hair were EPIC!
4. Poetic Justice– Janet Jackson
This is the most impactful movie hairstyle. We all have either had poetic/jumbo braids or know someone who wore these iconic braids. My top pick!
5. Foxy Brown– Pam Grier
The 70s was all about natural hair, Black Power, and natural beauty. Pam Grier embodied that look and started a trends.
6. A View To Kill – Grace Jones
Her looks were iconic but this specific set a trend. Androgynous and kick ass, all in one!
7. Boomerang– Halle Berry
This is the look that made Halle Berry a global phenomenon and a household name. Short Hair, Don’t Care! Every woman was running to her beautician asking for this look. Including my mom!
8. Boomerang– Robin Givens
The weave was for baddies only, with a few coins. Mix that with volume and you have a look that lived throughout the 90s.
9. Wakanda– Everyone
No words can describe this epic film. Besides the acting and the cast, the costumes and the hairstyles are what really pulled this film together. This is one of my top pics for Black movie character hairstyles. Who was your favorite Wakanda character’s style? Tell us below!

The 2018 BET Awards brought some serious heat on Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. There were multiple fashion hits and misses as well as, great performances by many of today’s stars.
Janelle Monae took the lead in a statement rainbow gown in honor of pride month. Blac Chyna surely came through with some serious glitz and glamour in a shiny post-breakup ensemble, giving us lots of underboobs, in a stunning mesh metal dress with side cutouts to emphasize her leg and thigh tattoos with a silver finger wave hairdo. Accompanied by her long-time best friend Amber Rose, who ditched the bald look for a long blonde wig and short green gown.
Let’s not forget Meek Millz’ statement hoodie that he rocked out during his performance of “Stay Woke” featuring Miguel.
