Time To Get My Hair "Did"

Hi Y'all!!!! My hair came in today!!!!! I have an addiction to Virgin Indian Hair!!! I love it!!!

22" 20" 18"

Yes I broke out my measuring tape to my order was correct, I don't play! Everything measured out perfectly. Each bundle is 4oz of hair (If I had a scale I'd weigh it, I know girls that will weigh it to make sure it's 4oz. If your familiar with Beauty Supply Store hair, 1 pack is about 4oz. A full head takes 8-10oz depending on the size of your head and whether or not you like a really full look.
The hair I ordered is Virgin Wavy it has a beautiful wave pattern!! I can also blow it out, flat iron, or work the waves. I love having options. I ordered from
There prices are amazing!!! They claim that they prices are about %50 less than most vendors. I only paid $105 for the 22'' bundle. Most vendors sell 22'' anywhere b/t $150-$200 +

Ok ladies this is the part where I want your help! I''m basically a pic thief.... I steal pics of peoples hair and save them in my "Weavspiration" folder in my computer (Dork & a thief).....
Just for fun I want to know which style you would pick for me.

Some of y'all probably have no idea what I'm talking about so here is some info.

~Virgin Hair 101

What is Virgin, Full Cuticle, Remi/Remy Hair?
  • Virgin hair is hair that is free of any chemical processing or altering. It is the pure, 100% natural human hair cut from the head of a single or multiple human donors. Virgin Hair is 99% of the time dark from Jet Black to Medium Brown.
  • Full Cuticle hair refers to hair that has not been subjected to an acid bath cuticle removal or any chemical altering. All cuticles remain intact maintaining the integrity, strength, and sheen of each strand.
  • Remy hair is hair that has been collected from the heads of women directly. Remy hair is collected in a method in which all hair strands stay aligned in the natural direction as it grew (i.e. holding the hair in a ponytail and cutting), top at top, and ends at ends, to maintain the natural texture pattern and cuticle direction. This eliminates tangling problem commonly found in non-Remy or low quality hair.
  • About 90% of the human hair for sale (including commercial “remy”) by beauty supply stores and some online hair retailers has been heavily processed to achieve the look and feel. It is usually low quality, stiff and wiry hair of Asian (Chinese) origin, and sometimes mixed with synthetic and animal "filler" hair. Such hair is collected in a disorganized manner (tops/ends mixed up), stripped of its cuticles by soaking it in an acid bath, colored with metallic dyes, and further chemically processed to achieve certain textures. It arrives coated heavily in silicone, giving it a temporary "tangle free" nature and unnatural shine, which rinses away with the first few washes. Once the silicone coat is gone the significantly degraded hair leads to intense tangling, gathering, matting, stiffness, and dryness. Because the hair has been so heavily processed, it usually cannot handle any further processing (e.g coloring, perming, heating, curling, straightening). This type of hair is usually only good for one extension service and must be disposed of, leading to an expensive yearly cost if you are a frequent extensions wearer.
    Additionally, there are some health concerns with the use of this type of hair. Skin and scalp allergies have occurred in people who are sensitive to the synthetic, animal, and chemically processed fibers found in commercial beauty supply store hair!
