Made from 100% high quality tongable synthetic hair and a soft net cap. The hair is tongable up to 200'C which helps maintain styles better and keeps curls for longer.

Stylish Phonecases
Phone cases are always a welcome gift for tech-savvy teens, and www.casehut.com have a huge selection of fashionable cases.
Here are a couple of my favourites:

But my personal favourite is the Suki case

It holds your phone safely, and has slots for credit/bank cards or tube tickets, etc and looks more like a neat little purse than a phonecase.
