Q: How do I know what size to order?

Most of our wigs are available in an “average” size cap, but have adjustable straps inside to tighten or loosen the wig.

Some wigs come in a petite or large size cap and will say so in the description next to the wig in our catalog. If there is no mention of the wig’s size it is assumed the cap is of “average” size.

If there is a wig that you like and need it in a larger or smaller size, please contact us. We can resize most of our wigs to fit any size head. We will need to send you a measurement card for accurate sizing.

 


Q: What is the difference between synthetic hair and human hair?

Synthetic: easy to maintain (wash-and-wear), less expensive than human hair, easy to style, prestyled

Human hair: more versatility, longer durability, custom styling and coloring available

 


Q: Is human hair better than synthetic?

Not necessarily…choosing between a human hair wig and a synthetic wig is more of personal preference. For example, a person looking for a wig that is easy to maintain and less expensive would choose a synthetic wig…a person looking for a wig they plan on wearing everyday and that they can curl themselves would choose a human hair wig.

Keep in mind that just because human hair wigs cost more it does not mean they are the “better” wig to buy. Many times a high quality synthetic wig looks more realistic than a low quality human hair wig.

 


Q: Can I have a wig made from my own hair?

Yes. We make custom made wigs using our client’s own hair, however, many times additional hair must be integrated to add thickness (normally it takes several heads of hair to make one wig). For more information on custom wigs, please contact our Custom Department.

 


Q: How do I keep the wig on my head?

Our wigs have adjustable straps on the inside that may be tightened to hold the wig securely to your head. You may also purchase “snappy combs” (available through our catalog under “accessories”) that may be sewn into the inside of the wig for additional security. These combs clip to your hair…they attach to very thin/fine hair and even short hair!

If you do not have hair, you can request to have “tape tabs” put into the wig for an additional cost. If you are using tape tabs you must purchase the transparent tape or adhesive (available through our catalog under “accessories”).

 


Q: Why are some wigs more expensive than others?

Like most items you purchase, price is a reflection of quality. The higher the quality…the higher the price. There are many different types of materials than can be used to make wigs, including various types of synthetic fibers and human hair. For example, some synthetic fiber is softer and silkier than other types, therefore, making the wig more expensive. Some materials used inside the wigs are lighter weight and more durable, therefore, increasing costs.
