I received the Perfect Locks Clip On Ponytail right on time. It was shipped in a box and then inside a nice fabric envelope in which I use to store the ponytail extension. I am a redhead, so I ordered the honey blonde. I then took the human hair ponytail to my colorist and she was able to weave my color into the extension, leaving some of the honey blonde to give my ponytail some blonde highlights. I can't believe how well the coloring came out. My colorist was very impressed as well. The extension matches my own hair coloring exactly and my friends and family said my hair looked great I have been growing my hair out so no one realized it was an extension!. My only comment if I had to find a negative is that the wrap area is a little short as my hair is thick and it is sometimes difficult to get the extension to tightly wrap around my own ponytail. I have purchased other ponytail extensions and this is by far the best one yet! I will purchase this brand again and recommend that you don't waste your time with other brands. This may be a little more expensive, but totally worth the cost.
