We love living that “long hair, don’t care” life, but we also do care about our bank accounts. Wigs, in particular, can get pricey, and no matter how cute a hairpiece may be, struggling to afford rent after dropping a pretty penny on it is never a good look. That’s why we were especially psyched to hear about the $40 Sam’s Beauty wig that Twitter is currently obsessed with.
As vlogger Rachel Marie shared, the brand’s Stylist Swiss Goddess Wig is an amazing option under $50. “It is bomb, like wow,” she said in her YouTube review. “I’m honestly speechless about this wig; I don’t know what to say.”
The finished look is sleek and smooth, with fresh-out-of-the-salon layers. It’s truly double-take-worthy — upon first glance, it doesn’t look like Rachel is wearing a hairpiece.
While Rachel gave the wig high praise, she admitted that at the time of her testing, she hadn’t really worn it around a lot. “I won’t be able to say how long it lasts,” she said. Rachel also noted that the hair was, “getting tangly around the ends, but it’s [synthetic], so that’s kind of expected.”
So there you have it: your search for the perfect, affordable New Year’s Eve wig may be over.
