Purchased this unit for a girls trip to Las Vegas. I was a bit leery because the part looked quite dense. I was a bit concerned about the amount of work needed to thin the part and lace edge. Anyhoo, I received it and put it on right out of the package, and it was an instant hit, at least with me. My 12 year old daughter said it was pretty and looked good on me! That says alot Lol! I thinned the part and and lace front and took this unit for a spin. The color I purchased was C 7008, which I thought was a bit light, but all of the other colors I considered were sold out. I received soo many compliments on my hair...from men and women. Be aware that this is big hair, so rock with confidence! I'm in the process of ordering a couple of additional units.
