I love Yani! She’s bright, bold, and perfect summer hair!
Searching for another brightly colored wig, Yani called out to me! I proceeded to YouTube to look for reviews and found a couple. But in some videos, she appeared blue and in others greenish-teal. Due to my green obsession, I hoped Yani would be more green than blue in person. Thankfully, she is.
Yani is an easier style to pull off than my other brightly colored wig, Hailey. Her black roots tone down the extreme bright turquoise ends, making her easily wearable. ◊ Tip: An ombre wig is a great way to safely wear bolder colors!
◊ Tip: When wearing straight-hair wigs, it’s extremely important for your own hair underneath to be flat. Braid/flat-twist your own hair as flat as possible so that no bumps & lumps show through the wig!
On elevatestyles, Yani appears to only come in a few different colors – this turquoise color and a gray color being the two extremes. I wish there were more funky colors to choose from!
Yani is a soft-lace Lace Front with equally soft hair. She felt amazing out of the package! ◊ Tip: Soft lace is easier on your edges! And the hair just felt of greater/softer synthetic quality than my previously owned wigs.
◊ Wig Newbie Tip: Lace Front Wig – a border of lace lines the front hairline of the wig. A Lace Front wig requires that you cut this border of lace as close to the wig’s hairline as possible without cutting any of the wig’s actual hair.
After about 5 wears, I noticed Yani’s ends, like MOST straight hair wigs, start to become a bit rough and ratty. This is an easy fix! ◊ Tip: Yani is flat-iron friendly! Just flat iron Yani/any straight hair wig (especially at its’ ends) on LOW heat! This is synthetic hair ladies, we don’t want to burn her! A quick flat-iron & she’s back to normal 😉
Yani’s parting was PERFECT! I didn’t need to pluck any hair out to make the part wider.
◊ Wig Newbie Tip: It’s common practice to “tweeze” hairs from a wig’s parting in order to make the part more realistic if needed. Too skinny of a part gives away that you’re wearing a wig. “Tweeze” slowly to avoid mistakes!
◊ Tip: The only thing I did to Yani was place powder matching my skin color on the parting. Using my MAC Studio Fix Powder NC50, I lightly powered the parting both inside the wig cap and outside. This ensures the lace better matches your scalp color, making the wig look more realistic.
I do need a little more time to see whether Yani tangles easily and her durability. However, Yani did shed a couple of strands when I first brushed her. Nothing that I would consider alarming.
◊ Tip: If you decide to purchase Yani, make sure you carry a comb in your purse! She blows in the wind and the ends can get tangled that way. Not alarmingly tangled, just needs a quick comb through.
Look forward to seeing Yani a lot more often! I receive so many compliments when I wear her! Most people think she’s my own hair. Some want to take pictures of me. Yani is publicly-approved! 😉
