Photography lighting testing
I am a photographer and bought this to do lighting tests. I have attached pictures. When I saw in NJ we would be under a stay at home order, I had to cancel several model shoots. I had gotten some new lighting products and was disappointed not to be able to try them out. Many photography teachers suggest using a mannequin to do test of different lighting situations. I picked the Reika model because I was looking for darker hair since I specifically wanted to test lighting dark hair on a black background. The face is very lifelike which helps me work on how shadows fall across the nose and lips, as well as how the hair is being lit. I gave it 5 stars because it worked very well for why I bought it. But for photography, I have a few suggestions if HairArt wants to be able to sell to photographers. One is to have a model with glass eyes so that we can test the catch lights that we want in eyes. The Reika model has little white dots as, I guess, fake catch lights, so that doesn't do anything for a photographer. Also, it would be nice to have more shoulders. I put one of my wife's t-shirts on it with a clamp, but there isn't much shoulder area. Finally, I would like the ears to stick out a little more so that the long hair could be hooked over the ear, which a lot of woman I photography do to get the hair away from the eye. I tried doing it, but the ear is too close to the head. I'm going to try putting a small clamp on the ear under the hair and try and see if that lets me hook the hair out of the way. My wife suggested a bobby pin, but I have rarely photographed someone using bobby pins, much just use their ear. You can see my work on Instagram @frantvisuals

Perfect for shorter updo practice
I got this to work on Upstyles for shorter hair! It works great!
First thoughts... somewhat disappointed
I was looking for a competition head with brunette, medium length hair on the thinner side for which I would practice updos on. I got what I wanted and exactly what was pictured in a few days. However, I'm disappointed in the quality of the hair for a few reasons. First of all, there are many white hairs. Enough white hairs that are obvious from a distance and will need dyeing, which I didn't want to do. Second, there are so many baby hairs and hair strands that are short and constantly sticking out which will be annoying to manage with updos. Lastly, the hair is pretty damaged. Lots of split ends. Its also very frayed at the ends which most mannequin heads are that is easily fixed with a trim. I just don't know yet if I will be keeping the head so I don't want to put scissors to it. Lastly, the eyelashes are a nice touch but one of the eyes is missing a fourth of the lashes because they fell out. It seems to be real human hair because it didn't melt under my heated styling tools... and because of all the split ends.
Best quality mannequin and service from company. Definitely will repurchase
The mannequin head is a Christmas present for our daughter. She has not seen it yet, but we are sure she will be very happy with it as she practises hairstyling techniques with it.
