I’m a big fan of O-Wigs, as they have full lace/lace front wigs that are very thick and full, allowing them to last a long time. I usually order big curly wigs, but I’ve been on a bob kick as of late and opted for a straight wig so I could cut it into a bob. I ordered the PC010S from O-Wigs. They have it labeled as “curly” because it has a kinky straight texture to it, but it looks exactly like the picture, something clearly got lost in translation. The wig took about 2 weeks to arrive, as it was a stock wig and I did not add any customizations.

Here are the details on what I ordered:

  • Hair Length: 12″
  • Hair Color: 1B
  • Baby Hair: All around perimeter
  • Lace color: Light Brown
  • Cap size: Size-2
  • Cap construction: cap-3 Glueless lace cap

To cut and style your bob you need:

  • Hair Scissors
  • Fine tooth comb
  • Hair tie
  • Flat iron and/or curling wand

To cut it into a bob I pulled the hair into a ponytail at the nape of my neck and cut it at the length I wanted (just above my shoulders). This is a great trick and cheat to cutting hair into a bob as the hair will fall to frame your face, with little precision required. Then I lightly flat ironed to remove some of the kink out of the hair. I love the end result, with just enough texture to mimic my own hair. I then went in and used my 1.5″ curling wand to add some bouncy curls to the hair. But the real trick is pin curling the hair when it’s still hot from the iron with two (aka “double”) prong clips. I’ve seen this done on just about everyone of the popular hairstyles on Instagram and it always ends up with the best results of full body waves that last for days.  Yes, it’s really that simple!
