Styling Notes
I sewed quite a few darts into the cap, and it's still way too big. I removed a weft from the inner layers of the bottom back with a seam ripper and sewed those in pieces to the inside and outside of the front to help obscure the edge of the wig cap. I then used a pink sharpie to color the wig netting and base to match the hair so it wouldn't show so much in the bangs part. I also straightened most of the wig with a flat iron so it would sit more nicely in the ponytail. I pulled a lot more hair forward into the bangs.
Wig Review
This is the new Jeannie build. The most obvious difference is the addition of a partial skin top, which DOES NOT go to the front of the wig, so you still cannot split the bangs naturally.
The cap is still way too big for me.
The hair on the sides and front are now really thin and show the cap base and netting. The hair in the back is soooooo thick, the clip doesn't actually fit over that fat ponytail. The ponytail thickness is remarkable considering most of the inner layers are now super short (about 1 inch long and curly). The old build was way nicer, despite the lack of skin top.

The ponytail is now thinner and layered. The top isn't very rounded and shows too much of the shape of the clip. The old ponytail build was also waaaaaay better.
