Hi to all my lovely Crossdresser Heaven Girls!

Today I’ll be covering tips on wigs to include where to buy them, colors to consider, how to take care of them, and how to store them.  I’ll be teaching you how to save a lot of money covering all the issues noted above regarding wigs!

First, never go to a brick and mortar wig store to purchase a wig. If you do, you’ll be paying between $100 to $300 for a wig you could have gotten online for between $29 to $69!

Crossdresser Heaven - Find Your Tribe

My favorite place to purchase wigs is out of a catalog from Paula Young Wigs. The average sale prices on Paula Young Wigs range from those $29 to $69 prices which are noted above.  Most of the time, the sale prices of the wigs in the printed catalog are better than those online. However, if you are worried about your wife or SO finding the catalog in the mailbox, you probably need to do your purchasing online and possibly establish a PO box at your local post office where you can have the wigs delivered to in order to keep them out the sight of those who you don’t want to know about your cross dressing. My wife is accepting of my cross dressing now, so I don’t have to worry about getting to the mailbox before she gets there. She also never opens any packages addressed to me and I don’t open any addressed to her as well.

As far as I’m concerned, and I have quite a bit of experience ordering wigs online and out of catalogs. Paula Young Wigs offer you the best bang for the buck. The quality of the wigs, the selection of wigs and colors, and their liberal return policy are all reasons why Paula Young Wigs is my place to go to order my wigs!

I’m a chin-length, bob-cut kind of girl and that’s the style that works for me. It took more than one wig purchase to find what length worked for me. The same may be the case for you. Same goes with the selection of the color of wig that’s right for you. I really like my auburn colored wig with the dark roots.

Your color choice is your own personal choice. I have four different colors of wigs. You may want to choose a color that’s close to your natural hair color or you may want to choose a color totally different from your natural hair color. Look through the catalog and see how various colors and styles look on women with different skin tones, face shapes, eye color, and other physical features which may match up well with various wig colors.

As far as maintenance of your new wig/wigs, don’t buy any of those wig maintenance items they will try to push on you if you order on their 1-800 number. Here’s my money saving tip for cleaning your wigs. I wash my wig/wigs in the shower while taking a shower and I use the over the counter shampoo I use on my own hair on the wigs. I wash and rinse them out in the shower and then towel them off once out of the shower. Then I blow dry them with my hair dryer and shake the wigs while drying them to help add body to the wigs. Just comb them out with a wide tooth comb after drying them.

As far as storage goes, here’s my money saving tip on storage. I bundle up two plastic Walmart bags and then place the ball of bags under each wig and place the wig on its side on the inside of an empty shoe box to store inside my Scarlett closet.

One additional point I would like to make; you’ll more than likely need to do a little trimming on each wig you choose to purchase after it arrives and you try it on a few times. This trimming process is very normal. Just try and trim as little as possible as you go. You can always take off more; however, if you cut off too much, you may destroy the wig. Take your time while trimming your wig. Go slow and take off as little as possible as you trim!

This is a quick highlight-no pun intended, ok…yes it was. I’m sure you have a host of questions to ask me regarding wigs. If you have additional questions, please feel free to send them to me in a private message.

Sincerely, Scarlett

The following two tabs change content below.
I love the thrill of cross dressing and based on the CDH girls' comments in response to my posted photos, I must be pretty good at exploring the feminine side of myself. I find it sexy, sensual, exciting, challenging, and ever changing. I'm so very blessed now to have as much money as I want to spend on Scarlett and can now, for the very first time in fifteen years, actually purchase dresses, tops, and skirts while shopping with my wife! I never thought that would ever come to fruition! I can now store all of Scarlett's things in our huge dream home when just a short period of time ago, it would all have to be kept in a temperature controlled storage unit. I love Crossdressing Heaven and know it's the classiest and most tasteful cross dressing site on line. All the girls are full of support and encouragement and if folks come to the site with alternate motives that aren't in line with our founders rules and regulations, they are quickly deleted from our site. Vanessa Law, our founder, keeps this site classy at all times. She has much help from her Ambassadors, Chat Room Monitors, Photo Monitors, Article Editors, and many more personnel to keep this site classy, encouraging, and supportive.

I bought one “quality” wig, and had to ditch it at the end of a business trip. It was wonderful, but could not keep up the habit. Now I will try this and send to my PO Box. Getting more time alone so can manage. The on line now. Great helps, again. Thanks

Hi Scarlett, I loved reading your advice. I just had my first wig buying experience recently, and I had a great time at a brick and mortar store in Louisville that was recommended to me by a drag artist in the city. I did pay more than Paula Young prices, but it was about $85. For me that was worth it because I tried on a dozen different wigs, had my two allies there with me to offer their opinion, and the shop owner was so sweet and complimentary on the whole process. I was clearly not her first crossdresser.… Read more »

Scarlett, Great article as always, girlfriend. Here’s a little tip on nail polish – you might consider using the water-based kind (latex or gel). You can find different brands on Amazon. I use this type of polish, it goes on easy (usually need to use two coats) and looks good. It meets my needs for photo shoots and then comes off pretty easy with some scraping and a cotton ball soaked in a small amount of nail polish remover (emphasis on small amount because that stuff is nasty and hell on your cuticles. It is actually pretty durable – if… Read more »

This is the holy grail of articles for me!! wigs!! geez, they have caused me so much grief, getting knotted and tangled, looking tatty etc. I managed to salvage one of my wigs, which was getting very knotted at the ends, but ok further up, i tried the usual de-tangling sprays and even fabric softener to try to correct the situation but to no avail, the answer? trim carefully at the base of the wig, the hair length was long so cutting a couple of inches off posed no issues, now the wig is de-tangled and wearable again. Never ever… Read more »

I’m awaiting my first wig that I purchased online. Do I need a Styrofoam head to put it on to comb and shape it, etc.?

Since I live in Hollywood, FL for about 5 months a year, I was wondering where in FL Danika shops for her wigs. I know that FL is huge but I have nothing to lose by asking. I buy my wigs at Paula Young as well but don’t trust myself to trim them. I use them as is.

I live almost directly across the state from you on the west coast of Florida and just north of where I live there is a wig shop that is owned and operated by a crossdresser just like us. I have made some purchases there and have always been very happy with the product, price and service. She often has sales on some of her products and everything she has is of excellent quality. This is the deal that can’t be beat. So you girls in southern Florida that don’t want things sent to your house, the drive may be worth… Read more »

Dear Danika
Are you in Naples or Tampa? I would be very curious how much her wigs sell for. Or, if she has a brochure, I’d love to see it.
Many thanks
Abby
