I’m Dasia, a licensed cosmetologist who loves all things beauty related. Having worked in the industry for over 4 years, you start to realize when the hair extensions you have purchased are worth it or not.
With this in mind I am going to be doing a deep dive review of a product from an E-commerce store called BeautyForever.
The item I will be talking about is the HD pre-plucked human hair lace wig. This wig was purchased without any incentive and an unbiased honest review will be given.
BeautyForever is a company based in China that has over 15 years of experience in the business. The company desires to provide high quality hair and customer service. They have successfully created a mainstream brand of global real human hair products.
When you first arrive at the store’s site, you’ll find it a little underwhelming. It looks exactly like any other hair site. Although this is the case, a bountiful amount of helpful information is provided and even various ways to save some money aka discounts.
The site offers a wide range of products. While the store is known for trends like wigs, there are many more products and styles to try from BeautyForever that might work for you. Their range in hair density and variety of color are some other aspects that make the brand stand out.
One of the company’s main goals is to have outstanding customer service. I can say from experience that they have succeeded in this aspect of business. As soon as my order was complete I was immediately updated with the status of the shipment.
The delivery of the items was one of the main areas I was not impressed with. The package arrived not only after the suggested time but also in a box that was quite damaged. While the products were fine, I would have expected more considering the amount of money that was spent on the hair.
While I was not intrigued by the company’s speed or way of delivery, many other loyal customers are. Plenty of reviews have expressed the fact that their products arrived at a reasonable time. They have also pointed out the outstanding quality of the hair.
What I Like
- Customer support – One of the easiest companies to get into contact with.
- Products – They have a wide range of products that differ from other stores, specifically when dealing with wigs.
- Lack of shedding – No matter how much the hair was messed with, little to no hair came out.
What I Don’t Like
- Shipping –The hair came later than expected and in a damaged box.
- Layout of site – The site looks identical to many other hair company’s, not unique at all.
- Smell – The hair had a subtle artificial smell when coming out of the package.
The hair was incredibly soft and fell in a very flattering way. It was purchased in the texture straight but the hair had a subtle natural wave to it. The hair even had natural layers which means less customization in the long run.
Many reviews highlighted the fact that the hair didn’t have a smell that is common with hair pieces. The product I reviewed did have a slight smell but wears off after a while. It would be a good idea to fully wash it before installing.
Another big plus I found with the hair is the lack of shedding. Running your fingers through the hair and brushing a numerous amount of times is inevitable while taking care of the hair. While this is the case, little to no hair came out as a result which will increase longevity.
The site also claims to have invisible or bleached knots on this piece. As I was reviewing the hair I noticed the knots were still quite visible. They weren’t showing in an overly obvious way, but I believe a little bit of customization would be needed.
This specific piece had a lace closure. The dimension was 5×5 and set in a middle part. The lace seemed durable and was also present in the nape of the neck. Thicker lace can often be difficult to blend as you can see in the photo, the lace is very prominent.
This unit also came with baby hairs. This is almost always needed when styling a wig as it makes the unit look more natural. Having baby hairs installed in a wig allows you to further protect your natural baby hairs.
The wig was bought at a density of 180%. The hair definitely feels thick, but not overly heavy. The longer length of the hair seems to balance out the high density perfectly.
The straight texture also worked well with this specific density. If the hair had any more texture, 180% may have been too much for this unit. The more dense the hair is it not only starts to look fake but it can also be heavy and harder to style.
The company doesn’t allow for the choice to change the density. Many luxury companies allow you to choose between around 3 different percentages. While this unit doesn’t allow for that customization, the wide range of lengths allow for the thickness to give off different looks.
The construction of this cap definitely lived up to the high quality. The closure seamlessly blended into the cap. Sometimes this isn’t the case and ends up being too bulky looking fake.
The hair on the side hairline was thick enough to cover the wefts. This is a big advantage of the unit because it hides the cap which can be a giveaway of fake hair if not properly covered.
The sewing was even and there were no loose strings attached. The closure was made from a good strong material as well. While it may be difficult to blend the closure, you don’t have to worry about it falling apart easily.
The wig lived up to all of the positive reviews. The hair was pre plucked and had an adjustable strap that allows the hair piece to perfectly conform to the head. This allows for maximum comfort when wearing the unit.
The wig came with 3 combs pre installed, two on each of the sides and one in the back. Having pre installed attachments is always a plus because it means less work for the user. They can quickly secure the unit to their head without worrying whether it will fall off.
While you aren’t able to choose a cap size, the cap is made from a very durable material that is both stretchy and breathable. A stretchy cap allows for the unit to conform to the head better and look less bulky.
My first impression of the E-commerce store was how similar it looks to many other companies’ sites. While this is the case the site is overall very informative. The site is broken down into a very strategic yet understanding way.
You may be looking for your account information, trying to learn more about the brand, or be shopping for a look for a special occasion. No matter what goal is, you are likely to find it on the official site.
The landing page highlights the latest deals which is good when staying on a tight budget. It also highlights trending hair on the site along with information about the company itself. If you opt for joining things like their email list, you get an additional discount.
Range of Products
BeautyForever has an amazingly large range of products. Their lace part wigs along with headband wigs are trending but they have a lot more to offer. Weaves along with either a closure or frontal are another popular option.
There is also the option for the wigs to come in a density up to 250%! This results in premium quality hair. Picking your desired color is also an easy thing to accomplish with BeautyForever.
If you’ve got a certain product in mind, Beautyforever most likely has an option available.
Customer support can be one area many companies seriously lack but I didn’t find that with BeautyForever. They have many different options to reach a representative. The easiest option is their knowledge based help center that has a collection of articles that answer their most asked questions.
As soon as my order was placed I got a notification via text about the shipment. They provided not only whatsapp, but also a customer service number to follow up with if any questions arised.
The website also provides an email you can reach out to that deals solely with customer service support. In order to have a conversation in a chat box with a representative all you need to do is leave an email and they respond in seconds.
This order from BeautyForever took just over a week to arrive, 8 days total, 6 business days. The company provides free standard shipping and for US orders they are sent from the warehouse in California.
The shipping time is estimated at 3-5 business days, this makes my order a little behind schedule. If you want the products sooner they offer an express shipment. This anticipated the package to arrive in 1-3 business days and is an extra $20.
For all international orders the products will be shipped from a warehouse in China. Shipping is free and the services used are TNT, DHL, and UPS. Estimated arrival time is 5-7 days with regular free shipping.
While my package didn’t totally align with the stated times, many other customers have received a speedy delivery. It’s also quite important to note the product came in a box that was damaged.
What Others are Saying
This customer was clearly satisfied with their product. They received the wig in the designated amount of time and were happy with the quality. She no doubt had many questions but the representatives were able to quickly answer any concerns.
This was a first time experience for this customer. Beautyforever seems to be a go to company from now on. The product was received in a reasonable amount of time and the customer got a great amount of compliments on the hair. She also highlighted the lack of both shedding and smell from the hair.
