I really like this unit. The curl pattern is really pretty and the hair is very soft. It is futura so it can be curled or straightened up to about 400 degrees. The first one of these that I bought a cut to a shoulder length bob and it is really cute. I purchased another one and will probably keep that one armpit length. The length of the original unit is really long it's about waist-length so if that is too much here for you you will need to cut it and style it a little bit.
