Subject: Ordered a custom silk top wig
Date Posted: Feb 10 2014 at 2:09pm
So I have been searching far and wide for a person to make me a custom wig and found someone. I am getting a half silk top wig made where the silk goes from ear to ear medium brown lace, light brown lace, the person making my wig will be adding more hair to the lace to make it look even more realistic. I decided to go with a 100 percent density at the hair line to gradually fade to 130 percent towards the top and then 150 percent towards the back because I like full hair. I will keep everyone updated on the wig and also post pics once I receive it. Also if everything is right, I will provide the vendors information. All together, the cost is 375 which I don't think is bad and it will also be 24 inches long

I was going to ask for rush which would be 16 days to make, but I am paranoid and thought something could go wrong if you rush someone on their work so it will be done in about 25 days. I was going to do a full silk cap but I know through some of the topics, people thought the full silk top may be too hot, which is why I opted for the half silk. But the person I purchased from I believe has another slot for creating a wig if anyone is interested

2 things

1 - I may be interested in your vendor if all turns out well
2 - Hello neighbor.  I'm in Denver (well actually Aurora) too.  Nice to meet someone on the boards in the neighborhood.  

Keep us posted on your order.  Really interested in getting a costume unit.

Hello there! I know it will turn out well, the person has a 100 percent rating and she even had people who purchased from her follow up months later with even more positive feedback on top of the previous feedback that was left. She confirmed everything with me and asked a lot of questions which I appreciated and the prices she charges, in my opinion are excellent, especially for a silk top unit where the lowest price I have seen is around 700 dollars. @Shell4624 I am always in Aurora, especially at my favorite beauty supply store, Living Color. I need to make a visit there this week:)

I'm excited to see.  I am a full time full lace wearer due to severe hair lost and I'm always looking for a excellent vendor.

Thank you all!  I just needed something better than what I currently have because I ordered from classiclacewigs.com and the unit is nice looking but tangles like no other. Also, the person I ordered my custom wig from said she should have her website up soon so I would be more than glad to provide her info

I am more than glad to provide the vendor, I will pm the info to anyone who request. I just am not sure if I want to post it in here yet, just because of the whole bandwagon thing lol. Also for the people requesting the info, once I post pics of the unit, would it be ok if you guys let this vendor know I referred you so I can get a discount? I am looking to purchase a full silk top for my next wig and I would greatly appreciate it

I will have pics up next week because she just messaged me saying she will be sending it out this week. @coconess, I ordered the light yaki texture and it was pretty in the beginning, but it just tangles and sheds too much for my liking which is why I went on the hunt for a vendor. I searched and searched and even posted in here, but was not getting any love, which is all good. My current texture is virgin chinese silky, but I figured if I want a more kinky texture, I could always do the process myself with whatever perm the asians use to make their hair look kinky

I have the wig, I don't know if you guys want me to post pics now or after I tweak it a little. I got it in a natural color so it looks like a 2 or 4 and I was going to go get highlights and low lights in it but I have decided to just dye it black so let me know

Sounds good but I must say ... adding MORE hair to make it look more realistic ... is not correct. 100 .... graduated out to 130 will not look realistoic IMO.

Less hair makes (straight/wavy) units look more realistic.

Most people walking around with their own hair .. have low density heads of hair.

This is key.
