The perfect shade for me.
Just like the reviewers on the 12 inch version, I love this topper! The synthetic hair is smooth and not as shiny as others I've owned (a little dry shampoo works wonders), and the coverage is sublime. I did sew two clips in toward the front, as the placement of the front clips doesn't work for me, but with that small adjustment and adding some bangs, I'm good to go.
I bought it in an 8; when I pulled it out of the box, I thought it would be too light, but it's the perfect shade for me.
