Product Description

Gabor Essentials Heat-Friendly Optimistic Wig
What It Is
The Optimistic wig is an easy to wear boy cut style that's big on volume and small on maintenance. Get your short and sassy look in a snap. 

What You Get

  • Wig

What It Does

  • Application is quick and easy - just shake and go
  • Wide velvet comfort band at hairline helps to prevent friction
  • Ultra-thin adjusters at the nape allow for a personalized fit
  • Multidimensional colors made up of 7-11 gradient shades make for a natural look
  • Made of exclusive heat-friendly Excelle fiber; change the style if desired with hot tools up to 350 degrees F

How to Use

  • Remove the hair net from the wig.
  • Gently shake the wig to separate the fibers.
  • If your hair is long, pin it flat to your head for a smooth silhouette under the wig.
  • Optional Tip: Use a stretch nylon wig cap to hold long or short hair under the wig. This light, cool cap will control your loose ends and prevent wig slippage.
  • Place the front of the wig at your natural front hairline and pull on so that the back of the wig is placed at the nape.
  • Adjust the wig as needed by sliding it from front to back or side to side. Use a rat tail comb to slip any loose ends under the wig. Use your favorite styling tool or fingers to create the look that's just your style.

Gabor Wig Troubleshooting Guide
  • If the wig is too big or too small: Adjust the stick and loop adjusters until the wig feels secure. You can also take the wig to a wig shop to have it professionally resized.
  • If the wig looks fake: Make sure you have lined up the ear tabs with your ears and that the front is pulled back to your natural hairline. Pull out some of your own hair and blend for an even more natural look.
  • If the wig has too much hair or is hard to style: Take the wig to your hair stylist. They can thin out the bulk and shape the style to your specifications.
  • If the hair on the wig looks thin: Be sure to shake the wig right out of its package, then comb through. It may be that the fibers just need to be redistributed.
  • If the hair on the wig is sticking up: Soak the wig in cool water for 5-10 minutes, then spray it with a leave-in conditioner to smooth down the fibers. You also have the option of using a holding hairspray.
  • If the hair on the wig looks shiny: Soak the wig in cool water for 5-10 minutes. If the wig still looks shiny when it dries, brush it with a little dry shampoo.

    Very natural - hard to decide on a color-bought 2 just to figure it out and went with grey brown as the most natural looking one. Love it - Want more new ones.

    I am a cancer patient and losing my hair. I was hoping this wig would help. It doesn't look like the one on TV. It feels like straw. I don't recommend it.

    Crown Hair too short!

    Such a cute wig but when on my head the crown hair is much too short as are the bangs. Loved it on the models but just doesn't look as modeled!
