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!
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.
