Needed this head for a

Needed this head for a color class. The quality of the hair seems good, but the hair wasn’t as thick as I was hoping for. It was too late for me to send back and order a different one so I’ll just have to make do with this one.

She’s good :)

This mannequin is really beautiful, and has fairly long hair. It can handle a lot of styling, but it doesn’t bleach well. It takes about 3 rounds or so before you can get a true level 9. But hey you want to use a mannequin more than once right?
