  • Wig caps
    @Greenbo@Samantha
    Another Baldie here. I do t wear wig caps or bands. Wasted some money on a bunch of different kinds and not being ever worked. I buys the Jon Renau silicone sheet and stitch some in the nape of the wig it takes care of the riding up problem and I usually put it in other strategic areas of the wig. It helps a lot. I wish they made more wigs for us that already had this integrated in the wig cap. RW makes some caps that are pretty good and some of the Ellen Wille HH wigs have them as well. But they are usually the high end ones. Which is why I bought the Jon Renau silicone sheet. I convinced wigs.com to start carrying it. They have the 5X7 and 8X10 sizes. I think it is totally worth the money!

    Yes they are awesome stylists. The owner is Rachel she is amazing and I think she does all or most of the coloring jobs.
    The iwigs has wefts in the lower back but they are closed.

    are you near there? Yes they let
    You try on. You should call ahead then they have a stylist to help you. No pressure at all. They are open 10-3 mo-Fr. they are 100-200 more than Shannon but they include cut and style in the price and they are doing custom coloring. I did buy my wig there because I fell in love with the color but I will buy my next one from Shannon. If you are within driving distance you should
    Go check it out.
  • Most realistic wig
    I would have said any of my lace front hand tied mono tops but now I’m saying my iwig (hh). I can even do a high ponytail after I cut a few random baby hairs around the cap. z8vw6owvzdtaa06d.jpeg

    it is called European but I think Mongolian is European as well. But it’s not virgin ( unprocessed). I actually went to California for a conference in San Francisco and Gardeaux wigs was about an hour away so I got a close
    Look at the iwig there. It is super
    Comfortable and just awesome. I hope
    It holds up ( but I think it will) and it is well worth the money ( low 1000s depending on length) If you get virgin hair it becomes a lot
    More expensive ver quickly. Shannon has really good prices and she is very trustworthy. I hope
    To get a lighter colored wig some
    Time in the future for the summer....

    yeah I’m not really on the forum that much anymore either. But I just had to do this post.
    I think the administrators from wigs.com are dropping the ball.
  • October is Breast Cancer awareness month
    yay! Everyone thinks I’m so hip.
  • Does anyone have a list of all the synthetic Raquel Welch wigs with a memory cap 3
    thanks for the list Vee.
    Yeah I’ve been super busy and the forum is fizzling is t it? The wigs.com folks are totally dropping the ball. So sad! We had a good thing going here for a while.
  • Do most of you pluck the part line?
    I have done it, because I have no hair underneath and when there is a monopart it looks very realistic when you can see my scalp shine through. Some wigs are too dense. But with most wigs it is not necessary.
  • Elizabeth or Cameron or BOTH?
    no no just saving it for good. I have a bunch of
    Wigs I’m wearing For Every day
  • Elizabeth or Cameron or BOTH?
    I have not worn her much to be honest. I was saving her I guess, but now I’m not really wearing her. I have not tried to alter the flip. I do love the color.
  • Silicone Sheet Attachment
    i have only sewed it into a monotop once Never a lace front. Usually the nape and sometimes the area next to the monot part. But then again I don’t have any hair. I would also shy away from the lace front. See if you can go back far enough to not do the lace front ( receding hairline anyone?)
  • Rec. for less dense wig lines?
    Ellen Wille wigs are generally less dense and therefore in my opinion more realistic.
    Some websites like sister wigs with a different spelling have a search tool to look for lesser density wigs.
  • Glenn Close
    AMEN! You are right they only have those younger models wearing wigs.
    As far as what is age appropriate.... we have had this thread before is long hair ok for middle aged or older women and I think the “consensus” pretty
    Much was: you can wear whatever the heck makes you feel comfortable and pretty or beautiful. There is no arbitrary no long hair after age. XX. Period same goes for color. Well in my opinion anyway and I think a lot of others would agree.
  • TOPIC OF THE DAY!
    I was thinking of you Misty. You would be one of the people up in our middle of our night
  • JR Fall
    solace cap is the one that the iwigs have ( HH )
  • JR Fall
    @Moonlitnight it’s a bit like the solace cap ( just not silk) it helps hide the knots. Most of the time though they do not have lace fronts ( unlike the solace cap which does have a lace front too).
    For example Sandra from JR has a double mono top. It make for a very realistic part ( and does not show the cap or biohair as much as the mono tops do)
  • Ordered my first BROWN wig :)
    I am
    So proud of you. Way to
    Go! And do t you dare not show us what it looks like ( even if you don’t like it)
  • Earning Badges
    learned something today. I mean I have been liking stuff but I had no idea what those badges were all about
  • who wears different colors and styles rather than going for one "look"
    People can be such a$$3$.
    I try to have a sense of humor about it because it’s not something I can change so might as well
    Laugh about it. Sometimes I feel like making people feel bad about being mean though. Saying things like, well due to my illness I have to wear wigs now ( let them fill in the blanks and feel guilty about being a jerk.
    I have also told people that if they see my husband with another woman it’s only another woman if she is skinny.
  • Suggestions on quality wigs under $200.
    under $200 with a long lifespan... I don’t know. It all depends. What cap features you want how you feel about permatease open wedged etc etc.
    your best bet is to peruse the outlet wogs wigoutlet .com and other websites which also have clearance wigs etc.
    I got a Karli Jon Renau for about 200 on eBay. Like new only tried on. That was a very decent deal so that’s another option.
    I like Envy Chloe, don’t remember how much it was but it was under 250 with 30% discount. It is wavy but not too curly and very pretty. It’s about shoulder length.
    If you don’t care too much about lace front or mono tops I am sure there are some good deals in other mid lengths. For me mono tops ( at least partial) and lace fronts are a must do to stay under 200 I would probably have to turn to eBay or outlets for a mid length. Off the top of my head...
  • who wears different colors and styles rather than going for one "look"
    like I said everyone has their own comfort level and time line. You’ll know if or when you’re ready.
  • who wears different colors and styles rather than going for one "look"
    The only way to be truly free to wear whatever you feel like wearing wig wise is to come out of the wig closet. That’s not easy and everyone needs to do it at their own pace. I only came out this year publicly my friends and family of course have known.
    The way I came out is by wearing different colors and lengths and having fun.
    Some people still have not caught on it’s very amusing. I don’t know how they think I can go from a short bob to long hair overnight, but they either don’t want to say anything or they truly don’t pay attention. But at my age I have zero %%|£\€s to give I just want to feel good inside my skin ( and hair).
  • JR 6F27 Caramel Ribbon. Does anyone have?
    Maybe salted caramel? @Vee1028has several. Not sure if that similar but you will probably reject it because of the dark roots.
    I have to say those zebra stripes and checkers on the mono tops drive me nuts! What it up with that? I suppose it’s the cheapest way of doing g the highlights but it is just so terrible!
  • Just bought ABBEY by Envy
    agreed RW density is great. JR is also pretty good I a lot of the styles but not all.
  • Just bought ABBEY by Envy
    yes Envyhair is very nice. My only complaint is it needs a lot of thinning
  • synthetic wigs losing body and wave and becoming pin straight
    mmm, they should not lose their waves if they are synthetic wigs that’s very strange.... but go ahead and try steam or low heat to get some wave back in them. What brand are they?
  • Just bought ABBEY by Envy
    they have rooted blondes too!
