Why don’t you offer wig customizations?


It is very risky business to offer these services.

Customizations are generally done under the condition that the wig cannot be returned after being altered. Clients are often eager to take advantage of these services and dismiss the risk that they may not like the outcome…until they realize they cannot return the wig! So, if they receive the wig and it doesn’t work, there is generally a very high likelihood that the dissatisfied client will file a chargeback to get out of paying for the services. Chargebacks are very damaging for small businesses, so most of us try to avoid them at all costs.

Most customizations require not only a competent hair stylist who knows what they’re doing with all types of hair (which is extremely rare, since they don’t cover how to cut and handle synthetic or heat-friendly synthetic hair in most beauty schools), but the person altering your wig must also be an expert seamstress. Even slight cap alterations require expertise with a sewing machine, needle, thread, what-have-you. This becomes even more complicated when a specific fit requirement is the impetus for the customizations because the risk of mistakes in the customization process can increase exponentially if the person making the alterations never gets to see how the wig actually fits on your head prior to cutting or sewing. All kinds of things can go awry.

Since we don’t like chargebacks and y’all don’t risk, we don’t offer these services.

Does the shade Rose Gold-R by Rene of Paris contain any red?

Rene of Paris’s Rose Gold-R (despite the name) is actually a blended neutral honey blonde with bits of gold throughout and a medium brown root. This shade does have a very subtle “rosey” tone, but honestly, this shade is no where what it’s name would suggest. Heather has an awesome color spotlight on this shade, you can watch:

The Secret Of Asymmetrical Cuts – Why They Work

By CysterWigs Contributor

Symmetrical facial features may be pretty attractive to the eyes, but when it comes to hair, symmetry can be super plain and boring. Asymmetrical haircuts have become somewhat of a standard in trendy styling, thanks to their ability to jazz up a look without overpowering one’s face. Asymmetrical cuts work for any hair length and texture, making them one of the top choices for versatility.

Wondering what an asymmetrical haircut is? Simply put, an asymmetrical cut is any haircut where one side of your hair is longer than the other. It works well for many traditional hairstyles, such as bobs, lobs, bangs, and even afros! Asymmetrical cuts also come in the form of two separate haircuts combined into one. This could be anything from a 90’s-style pixie cut and bangs combo, or an extreme, edgier pairing like a shaved side and a lob.

Asymmetrical cuts aren’t just trendy, fun and a great way to express one’s personality, they’re also a great way to draw attention to the best parts of your face and put less focus on the features that you may see as flaws. Many pro cosmetologists and hairstylists commonly turn to asymmetrical cuts as a way to give their clients a great cut when they may feel like they don’t quite know what cut suits their face best. This is because asymmetrical cuts are great at balancing one’s facial features. For instance, a crooked nose or ears that protrude can be made to appear much more prominent with a perfectly symmetrical hairstyle. This is because the perfect symmetry of the cut provides allows for a certain degree of plain-ness, and therefore allows for ‘odd’ features to stand out more than you’d like.

An asymmetrical bob or pixie can do wonders for your appearance, like making your face look slimmer – which is perfect for those with round or chubby faces that wish to distract from the roundness of their face.

Thinking of getting an asymmetrical haircut to jazz up your look? Go for it! Asymmetrical cuts work so well on any face shape and hair type that there’s an almost nonexistent chance that you won’t love it. Take a look at our selection of asymmetrical wigs and find the look that’s right for you.

Where should the adjusters go when you put on a wig?

From a client email:

I am having trouble with the nape of my wigs. Where should the adjusters sit behind the ear or below and under the occipital bone? Note: I have a very narrow head.

The nape should be below the occipital bone, unless the back of your head is flat. (Heather has that issue due to having a fuller neck, for instance.)

The adjusters should be ideally above this, somewhere comfortably in between the bottom of the back of your ears and the top of the nape on the wig. This will differ from woman to woman, though, since it all depends on your head size and how far you let those adjusters in or out.
