Hair color~~a wig wearers best frenemy!

Dear hair color, how we love to hate you. You are our very best frenemy.  Oh the disappointment of receiving an eagerly anticipated new wig only to find it is the totally wrong color.  Why is it so impossible to get the color that you want?  Check out our FAQ for the basics on the challenges of hair color in supplemental hair.  Below are some more details:

Is it possible to get an exact color match in Virgin Unprocessed hair? Would you like the good news or bad news first?  The good news is yes you can get an exact color match. The bad news is that it isn't as easy as it may seem and you have to be willing to make some trade offs to get that ever elusive color match. 

Here are the only ways to get an exact color match in Virgin Unprocessed Slavic European Hair:

1. Buy your supplemental hair in person.  This is truly the only way to make 100% certain the color is a match or is the specific color you want.  You can try it on as well as view it under both indoor and outdoor lighting. There is no substitute for in person viewing. The bad news is that the number of supplemental hair options that are available in most areas is limited at best. When you eliminate online stores you reduce your options exponentially. 

2.  Color your hair to match your new supplemental hair product.  A seamless match between your supplemental hair and your naturally growing hair is crucial when your naturally growing hair is incorporated with your supplemental hair. This is particularly true if you are wearing a small size piece like a topper.  If the colors don't match there can be a clear line of demarcation between your own natural hair and your topper. 

3.  Send us a sample of your own hair that we can color process our virgin unprocessed hair to match.  We might get lucky (fingers crossed!) to find Virgin Unprocessed hair that matches your hair sample but it is pretty unlikely.  

4.  Color the supplemental hair product to match your naturally growing hair or to your desired color. We listed this last as we suggest this option as a last result.  While it can be done, it can also reduce the longevity of your supplemental hair and if done improperly can irreparably damage both the hair and base materials. 

So even though hair color can be a mean frenemy that doesn't mean you can't get the color you want and need. You can, provided you are willing to make the trade offs necessary to get it.

How do I select the wig that is right for me?

It can be very challenging to find the wig that is right for you with the multitude of options that are available.  How do you filter through all the noise and figure out what the best choice for you?  We can help!  Below we detail some general information that can help you as you navigate your wig wearing journey.  Need more help?  Contact us for a free consultation

Some important questions to ask yourself when you are deciding what wig to purchase are:  What is your lifestyle?  What is your commitment to maintenance?  How skilled are you with styling? How open are you about your hair wearing?  What is your budget? Are you looking to fly under the wig wearing radar or are you okay if others know you are wearing hair?  Do you have access to a local stylist who can help you with your supplemental hair? What are your longevity and ease of use expectations? 

The first step is to answer the questions above to point you in the direction of what supplemental hair product might be right for you. Once you have done that then here are some options you might want to consider:

Synthetic wigs:

These are not your grandmothers synthetics!  Synthetic hair wigs have improved dramatically in recent years, resulting in some amazingly gorgeous synthetic wigs.   Pros: Synthetics work well if you want a plop and go style since the style is baked in. You can get a variety of fun colors and styles. They can generally be worn right out of the box, though some will require minor tweaking/personalizing. Some of the more expensive synthetic wigs are all hand tied so they are very lightweight and the often come with a natural parting area. They can range in price from as low as about $30 for lower end brands all the way to $500/up for designer brands.  Cons:  Some synthetics can be overly shiny making them unnatural looking. They can have limited longevity of one to a few months.  There is fairly steep  learning curve regarding caring for them.  Some synthetics are stiff, bulky, and unnatural looking. Synthetic fibers often don't feel as nice as human hair.  Some synthetic wigs are very unnatural in appearance and are obviously a wig. 

Human hair wigs: 

There are an infinite number of possibilities and options available in human hair wigs.  it isn't possible to address them all so here is a general summary:

Human hair wigs vary tremendously in their quality.  This quality impacts longevity, ease of use, natural appearance, and comfort.  If you are open about your wig wearing, change your wigs often, have more than one wig, are comfortable with styling/managing hair and have realistic longevity expectations then the quality of the hair and base materials won't matter much.  You have a tremendous variety of choices and options available to you.

If you are wearing hair to address thinning/hair loss and are not open about your wig wearing then the quality of the hair, the type of cap, and the quality of the construction of the wig will be significantly important to you.  You will likely want to invest in a the best quality hair and have a full customized  wig made for you by a highly skilled, expert wig maker. This type of wig will provide you with the most undetectable look, ease of use, great longevity (with proper care and maintenance) and a gorgeous natural looking head of hair.  These wigs are an investment but well worth it based on the excellent return you'll get on that investment.

New! Introducing our new wig lines in more detail

We are happy to announce that we are now offering three different wig lines!  We felt it was important to offer a variety of options to align with our mission of offering a truly personalized wig buying experience.  

We are now offering three lines of wigs: Platinum Elite Luxury Wig Line, 22K Gold Elite Wig Line, and White Gold Select.  Below is more specific information on each line of wigs to help you determine which one might be right for you.  The information is very general so information about your unique needs contact us today for a complimentary phone consultation. 

PLATINUM ELITE LUXURY CUSTOM LINE~~OUR SIGNATURE LINE OF WIGS

Our signature wig line is our Platinum Elite Luxury Line of wigs.  These wigs are all comprised with our highest quality individually selected unprocessed Slavic European hair.  Not all hair that we source makes it into this line of wigs, only the best of the best. Hair that doesn't meet our criteria for inclusion in our luxury line may be used in our two other lines of wigs.  We have very specific criteria that can best be described as hair that each individual strand (denier) is fine, soft, silky, thin, and lightweight. Using this hair results in the most comfortable, natural looking wig that moves and flows like your own naturally growing hair.  Given the proper care and regular maintenance,  wigs made with our elite line of hair great longevity and ease of wear. This hair doesn't require a lot of styling products to look good, it looks good naturally!  We offer fully custom, semi-custom, and Jaselle's Jewels stock wigs in this line of wigs.

  22K GOLD ELITE WIGS--OUR NEWEST LINE OF WIGS

 These wigs are made from individually chosen Eastern European Select hair that is unprocessed at time of harvest. It is double drawn and the cuticles are intact and aligned. Eastern European select hair is not as fine/thin as our elite Slavic European hair.  After harvest the hair may be gently processed in small individual batches to attain a variety of colors. Slavic European hair that does not meet our criteria for inclusion in our Platinum Elite Line due to texture reasons may also be included in this line.  The slightly thicker individual strand texture of this type of hair has the benefit of being able(generally) to sustain chemical processes with less damaging effects. The hair in this line is also individually selected and any chemical process occurs before the hair is tied onto the wig. 

WHITE GOLD SELECT--OUR MOST BUDGET FRIENDLY LINE OF WIGS

This is our most budget friendly line of wigs. Looking for a great deal? Love bargains? This line of wigs might be right for you. We have two types of wigs in this line: Discount Darlings and Clearance Cuties.

Discount Darlings and Clearance Cuties are final sales and have no warranty. Discount Darlings and Clearance Cuties have flaws/defects and may come from any of our wig lines. The discount will depend on the issue with the individual wig.

How long will my wig last?

How many stars are there in the sky?  There is no one right answer to this question, just like there is no one right answer to "how long will my wig last?". (okay -- we don't think there is one right answer to the star question! we could be wrong ) There are two elements that are significant in determining how long your wig will last: the quality of the wig materials/hair, and how you wear/care for/maintain your wig on a daily basis.  Our superior quality wigs are made with the best quality unprocessed double drawn Slavic European hair and are expertly constructed which are the foundations for a long lasting wig.  

A good analogy as an example is your favorite dress. Imagine three scenarios with the same dress: In the first scenario, you wear the dress 24/7. It is gorgeous after all and you look fabulous in it. So you decide to never take it off. Can you imagine what this gorgeous dress would look like after wearing it for months and months or even years 24/7? Eeek, not pretty!! In the second scenario, you wear the dress regularly but not exclusively. You wear it to work daily but you can't wait to put on your favorite sweats when you get home. You might wear it sometimes on the weekend but have other dresses that you wear too. You treat it well, dry clean it, and notice when it needs a trip to the seamstress.  In the last scenario, you wear the dress a couple of times a month or on special occasions. It's your super fancy dress up dress that you only bring out for a really special event.   Both dresses and wigs will last depending on how you wear them. If you wear your wig everyday for all of your life's activities, or if you don't remove your wig daily,  your wig will have less of a lifespan than a wig that you wear regularly or only occasionally. We have seen some wig wearers get many years from a wig while others only get a few. Your mileage will vary depending on the unique way you wear your wig. 

Here are some tips we recommend to get the longest lifespan possible from your new wig:

Care, Use, and Maintenance:  We strongly recommend that you have an experienced wig stylist assist you with caring for and maintaining your wig. Regular care and maintenance is a important component for the longevity of your wig.  All wigs will require regular care and maintenance and this is particularly true as the wig ages. 

Washing: We recommend washing your wig no more than 1x/month. Yuk, sound gross? Not at all! If your scalp and biological hair are clean then your wig  cap will be clean too. You can keep the wig hair clean by limiting the use of styling products and avoid wearing it for activities where you perspire a lot. We strongly recommend having your wig professionally washed. If you elect to wash it yourself, wash it carefully with high quality sulfate free products. Hard water can leave build up on the wig so washing with filtered/distilled water is a way to avoid this.  Make sure to avoid hand tied areas, don't apply shampoo/conditioner directly to the wig, and rinse thoroughly. Don't brush the hair when wet which can break it. Use a large toothed comb and gently comb from ends to top.  We recommend air drying on a wig stand.  If you elect to wash it yourself please make sure you are doing it properly to avoid irreparably damaging your wig. 

Heat Styling: Use heat tools sparingly and on the lowest setting.  Take care not to place a blow dryer directly on the hair and use the diffuser attachment. High heats will burn the hair and using heat regularly will cause split, damaged ends.  Please be extremely careful when using heat tools on the hair. 

Styling Products: Our wigs are naturally beautiful and need very little styling products. If you do want to use styling products, use them sparingly.  Use high quality alcohol and sulfate free products.  If you use styling products daily they will build up on the wig requiring more frequent washing and they can also cause the knots to loosen and the hair to shed from your wig. 

Swimming and exercise: Do not swim in your wig.  We strongly suggest if you exercise regularly and you perspire a lot that you wear another wig while exercising.  Perspiration will build up in the wig which will require more frequent washing.  Many wig wearers have a separate wig for exercising and swimming. 

Storage and environmental elements: We recommend storing your wig in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can and does cause fading/lightening of the hair in your wig, just like it does for naturally growing hair. We suggest covering your wig when storing it to prevent dust buildup. If you have a job where you work outdoors and are exposed to the elements this will cause more fading and oxidation of the wig. It will also absorb more odors. Anytime you perspire a lot it will require more frequent washing of the wig which reduces longevity as will exposure to outdoor elements. 

Extended wear:  We don't recommend sleeping in your wig or semi-permanent attachments as these significantly reduce the lifespan of your wigs.

What, no refunds, exchanges, or returns?!?

We know, we get it. It's scary to  purchase a wig that you can't return or get your money back if the wig isn't right for you.  While we don't offer any refunds, exchanges, or returns, we do offer the following: 

All of our custom orders come with a 90 day warranty that covers manufacturing defects. Please make sure to review our warranty policy for all the important details.  If your wig has an issue that is not covered or is outside our warranty don't worry!  If there is ever an issue you need fixed we can have it it addressed for a reasonable cost, plus shipping fees.  No need to worry about being alone while navigating the hair wearing journey, we are always here for you. 

One of the qualities that sets us apart from other wig makers is that we offer fully customized wigs that are individually made specifically for you. We don't have a one size fits all wig making process nor do we mass produce any of our wigs.  We get you the wig you want exactly the way you want it. It is an artistic creation that is made especially for you. The flip side of that is since it is made especially for you it will have zero to limited appeal to another wig wearer.  We make a significant investment of time and money in your custom order so offering refunds/returns/exchanges simply isn't feasible. 

We are always available to answer as many questions as you have either by email or phone consultations without any pressure to buy. Never, ever.  We'll answer all your questions directly and honestly. We want you to make a well informed purchase and get the wig that is right for you, even if it isn't ours.
