  • Another Dishonest Company- Wilshire Wigs
    Godiva's white labels wigs from a lot of brands. I am not sure if they have their own exclusive designs. If you aren't visiting their store personally for their services, I wouldn't be paying full retail price for a synthetic online. I have heard good things about their in-store customer service though.
  • Human hair brunette colors
    I am not an expert on HH. From what I have read and understand, your best chances at an ashy brown will be virgin European hair as the Asian hair tends to pull red when dyed. Hopefully, someone else will chime in to help you.
  • Human Hair Wig Colors
    The color in human hair oxidizes and fades. Eventually, they have to be recolored. You may need to use toner on the blondes occasionally. Sun exposure can definitely affect the color as well. They can dry out. There are many variables when purchasing HH. I have been contemplating it as well, but I am in no hurry.
  • Straight version of Estetica Kendall wig
    JR Marion would be a possible alternative to JR Kendall.
  • Ignite by JR in Laguna Blonde
    The Malibu Blonde HD is gorgeous on you!
  • Ignite by JR in Laguna Blonde
    12fs8 is such a beautiful blonde in the HD. I do not like the regular synthetic 12fs8, but the HD version is awesome. The dark rooting, number 8, ruins it for me though. I like subtle, not so harsh rooting. I will not darken my brows to wear darker roots. I would buy an unrooted blonde and add roots. The lighter unrooted blondes have better front hair lines.
  • help with permatease showing
    Like Jayne suggested, wigs can be cut down to be toppers too, if you are considering toppers. Henry Margu just released a couple of petite/average wigs. They have a new style called Taylor with a monotop/lace front that looks natural, plus a shorter one whose name I can't remember. Jon Renau and Gabor also have some petite/average selections. I think Ellen Wille and Belle Madam run small too. Sorry, you were called out at work. What an inconsiderate jerk to do that to someone.
  • Ignite by JR in Laguna Blonde
    I put the Tressallure Mia on, and it definitely has some stretch and should accommodate your circumference. I can't speak for the brand in general if the sizing is consistent for all of their styles.
  • Ignite by JR in Laguna Blonde
    I am a JR girl, but the rooted blondes do not have a natural hairline, especially the 8 and 10 roots. The 12 and 18 roots aren't as stark across the forehead. I wear bangs to solve that problem. Raquel's hairlines are beautiful, but I think equally unnatural at times with the shock of all blonde at the hairline in her rooted blondes. I bought a Tressallure Mia in Mimosa Highlight and the front lace was beautiful as it was a mixture of blonde and the rooted color, very well done.
  • Considering my first wig???
    I have read that many women can get assistance from their national health service for a wig in the UK. Maybe they can direct you to a salon? Simplywigs, Aspire, and Mimo are all in the UK.
  • What are reasonable expectations?
    I also find wavy wigs don't show wear or tangling as fast as straight wigs. I wear longer styles past my shoulders mostly, and I do not get six months of all day/everyday wear out of a synthetic. If you learn to steam and restyle, you will definitely get more mileage out of it.
  • Sentoo Wigs
    I have eyed a couple of their styles on the UK sites. I am excited this brand is being offered here now, although in limited selection. Hopefully, they will expand their selection to include more styles. Isn't this brand owned by the same company as ROP/Amore, etc?
  • Hair Videos You Wish Were Online
    Attachment and removal methods like taping ear tabs.
  • The difference between the Human Hair Wig and Synthetic Wig
    Wigs.com should have made this a closed group. Trolling or advertisements don't happen in other closed hair groups. There would be more participation on this forum if they would have done that in the beginning.
  • Wouldn’t you know it!
    Yeah, Jodie has been on the discontinued list for awhile. If you go on the JR website, they list their discontinued styles under Wigs/ Collection/ Last Call. It stinks when you have to find an alternative when your go to wig is discontinued!
  • Help us improve :)
    The videos are made with the novice in mind. Experienced wig wearers know what a nape measurement, bang, etc is, but a newbie may not. It makes sense to point out the features in the videos to inform the viewer because they would be answering repetitive questions from potential buyers about what a nape measurement means. Better too much info than not enough.
  • Laser Max
    There isn't a cure for androgenetic alopecia, just treatments that are largely ineffective for most women. We go through all of the vitamins, shampoos, etc hoping our hairloss will stop and recover. Well, biotin doesn't cut it and isn't a hairloss cure! It takes a while for some women to accept the hairloss is permanent and turn to toppers or wigs.
  • BelleTress Maxwella - question about heat friendly fibers
    I own one JR HD Spicy, and one RW HD wig Editor's Pick. I love the look of JR's HD fibers over RW's HD fibers. Spicy is beautiful! I only bought it for the occasional event, so I still don't have much experience with HD. Editor's Pick is just house hair that I pin up. I am sticking to regular synthetic as I don't crave spending a lot of time restyling.
  • New to the wig world, a lot to take in!
    You can get traction alopecia from tight weaves and the damage can be permanent. Most toppers require clips or tape for security. Have you tried rotating the clips every few weeks? You could switch between toppers and wigs depending on your needs. Please post back on your experience with the clipless topper. I do understand wanting to put your hair in a pony as it isn't as easy or natural looking with a wig.
  • Laser Max
    I bought it from QVC for my daughter. She wouldn't stick with it, so I returned it. I think QVC allows an extended return on the product, so you can use it and see if you get results. Honestly, laser technology is like minoxidil. It won't work for everyone and is best for those in beginning to moderate hairloss stages. It might help maintain what you have for a period of time, but I wouldn't expect a head full of regrowth. I have seen the laser caps advertised for a few thousand too. I am beyond the beginning to moderate hairloss stages and don't want to waste my time or money.
  • Different Companies, Same Wigs
    It is called white labeling where the wig store puts their own house brand name on the wigs offered by name brand manufacturers. They typically upcharge for the styles. I wouldn't pay full price for a synthetic, and I especially would not pay above retail price. However, I have heard very good things about Godiva's customer service in their store. Good customer service and customization services are worth paying extra. Would I personally order a style online from them and pay more than retail? No. Would I pay the higher price if I lived near them and benefitted from their store services? Yes. If you have been happy with your orders and service from them, continue doing business with them.
  • So disappointed in Noriko
    *deleted this post as I wrote it last week. They held it for moderation and just got around to posting it out of order in the thread.
  • How to Choose Best Wig at Low Price?
    For your first piece, try to pick a style and color that closely matches your hair style now. Watch as many YouTube videos as possible for style, color, synthetic, Human hair, etc. Subscribe to the online stores for sale notices. Never pay full price online. If you are near a wig store, it may be worth the try to start there to try on pieces and colors. Look for reviews of stores around you. Some will cut and style it for you and offer many valuable services.
  • So disappointed in Noriko
    I figured they would find it within specs. The standards are low for quality. Honestly, an open cap wig should be in line with PY prices. They want to charge Cadillac prices of course. RoP has never responded to an inquiry through their website when I have asked product questions. Maybe they respond through facebook inquiries. Their customer service is awful. Sorry that you received a dud.
  • Would Pixie Cut be ur next Summer Hairstyle ?
    I can't pull off the short cuts. My facial features aren't petite. Happy for those who want to, but it will never be my style either.
  • Ear clips help and distance from eyebrows newbi.
    Four fingers from the top of your eyebrows is generally the advice given if you don't have a front hairline as a guide. Mine is a little less. If you have a front hairline, line it up with that. Widow's peaks are a little trickier.
  • New Video--How to Wear a Wig to the Beach
    Waves and curl look beautiful under sunhats!
  • wig sizes
    Estetica runs larger than most brands. I wear JR mostly, but their cap sizes are inconsistent with their brand.
  • How long after receiving a new wig do you wash it?
    I will never wear new hair out of the box. It has to be washed first, even if it doesn't require any customizing. I wear styles like JR Rachel, JR Heidi, etc. Washing them always cuts the shine in the blondes I wear and relaxes the waves so they aren't wiggy. They look more natural after their first wash imo. After that, I wash them every 6-8 wears. I store them in their original boxes after wearing so they don't collect dust. When I travel, I store them in gallon Ziploc bags (they each get their own bag). Some people hardly comb or wash their synthetic hair, but I feel synthetic hair looks wiggy when it starts to clump and not move. They are expensive, so people have expectations of the plastic hair lasting months and months. They are disappointed when they don't last, even with "proper care". I dislike that phrase personally. Through trial and error, we all develop our own maintenance system for wig care.
  • First wig advice
    I have never worn a 360 lace wig. I imagine that will be more challenging. I wear lace front synthetics. I would watch as many YouTube videos as possible.
