I am in the market for some new hair so I reached out to two vendors that I have used in the past. I sent them the same specs but received two very different quotes on the hair. I have not committed to purchasing from either of them as of yet. I just wanted to know is there any insistence where you would spend this much money on a lace wig. One vendor quoted me 358 and the second vendor quoted me 535. I am just leery why such a huge difference in price. The specs are attached below.
 

Virgin Malaysian
28 inches - root to end
Light brown full lace NO stretch
Medium size cap
Curl pattern like the pictures attached
Swiss Lace
Color - 4/30 highlights
Baby hairs around the whole wigs
Bleached knots in the front of the wig
Freestyle parting in the wig

I think the length and the color are what bring the cost up.
 
If you order this via a CV ... the 368 would be reasonable but the 500 is too high
If you order this via a regular AV ... the 368 would be almost too good of a deal and the 500 would be a little high - but perhaps they have very good quality to justify the price.
 
Also .. does this price include shipping? Because that's another 40 depending on how they price it.
 
(I always order from a CV with much simpler custom specs so I could get almost 2 units for that 368. So it's hard for me to judge.)

535?!  Starlite, do you know how much you are being charged for the color work on that wig?  Does the higher vendor's name begin with an "R"? Embarrassed

ETA - what is the density on both wigs?

I will say this...I've never had any major issue with his stock units (I've purchased around 10 stock units in blonde, black & brown/auburn from him) ....my one and only custom order (my most recent order) was a totally differemt story ^^ :-/
