Have you considered Renee/Fly Honey Wigs?  http://www.flyhoneywigs.com" rel="nofollow - http://www.flyhoneywigs.com

I am not sure of your reluctance for not going with any of the ones you listed, but I will say that IMO, they are the best. They may be a bit pricey but if you get a wig that's made well with quality hair it can list you years. Out of that list, based on quality and affordability, I would definitely go with Trebella, she's worth it.

The main drawback with Trebella is the wait time.  If you want your wig by July, you are already out of luck.  I think that I am going to make an appointment with  Fly Honey her turn around time is 20 days.

I am a loyal customer in a sense. I only bought my wigs from My Wigs Box and he never disappointed me. My order usually comes within 25 days with affordable price.

I have used 'myhairisfab' on 2 occasions to make full wigs and trebella once. I would say their workmanship is comparable.

I had a wig made by trebella wigs along time ago when her prices were affordable $70. But now shes decided to throw affordability out of the window and raise her prices. Turn around time is way to long. So I had to find someone else. Try @heyupartwigs on instagram she has a wix site also. She did a great job. Fold over method shes capable of not cutting tracks. The closure lays superflat. She charges under 100$ and is local to me very quick turn around time.

thanks ladies, yes the wait time is a killjoy with TreBella, I had a MissBossy, well constructed, it didn't fit my head right though, I was thinking of going with Agape, but decided to see who you ladies are using.....I did a wig myself once, it came out ok, no patience for it now...I'm going to check out the suggestions..thanks again

I'm sorry but how is charging $175 throwing affordability out of the window? I have had units from her that have lasted over a year and would and happily have paid her price increase because $175 is about the price of an install that only lasts a couple of months. I can get a wig made for that amount and be good for an entire year. That is more than affordable and actually nowhere near what she could be charging for the value that you're getting, IMO. Now the turnaround time is unappealing but you can pay a little extra for a quicker service and even those prices are still cheaper than getting 3-4 installs throughout an entire year.

I had a wig made by Agape and I'm extremely happy with it. Construction is great and it fits like a glove. Pam contacted me through Facebook as she was styling the wig which I tought was a nice touch. Turn aroun time was less than a week. Getting an appointment may take a few months though.

Before you give your hair to any wig maker I mark my wefts , with a metallic pen. Especially if they sell hair, I dont have time energy or needing a case behind you switching hair with your "vigin" whatever you selling.

No shade but those people in Royal Oak Confused, If they can sell wigs then I should just order me some wig caps from China cause NOPE to what I just saw on FB.

Does your finished product look like the ones on FB??? Those look thick and unrealistic around the hairline.

and that red hair one CryCry I wept for her....

I was going to suggest FlyHoneyWigs too.  She seems to be really good, thorough & honest.  Takes pics of hair as received, cuts, colors (if you want), restores, etc.  And she's reasonable.  I would try her, but I'm not doing wigs just yet.
That chick s_f_ing_vain makes wigs too.  I've seen it on IG, but haven't really looked into it.

I truly enjoy our (@AFFCHairStudios) Custom Units. We offer our custom upart or full wigs for just $75 which includes a custom mannequin, creation of the unit, braid down, sew down of the top of the unit, combs or clips used in the back, cut and style. You can always bring back this same unit and receive the braid down, sew down of the top of the unit, combs or clips used in the back, cut and style again for just $25! 


First appointment we have is a consultation where we measure your head and in 7-10 business days we schedule a 45 minute appointment to install. However, most of our wigs are completed and installed in less than 2 days. This video below shows a 1 day turn around of a unit, witha  client who brought in her own hair and received her install in less than 3 hours. (This client dyed her entire lace closure blue black.)

http://instagram.com/p/noYJsWRDlt/

Our units are ideal for clients who are not able to wait for their $35 partial sew-in or $55 full install with us, currently we are booked until September 2014. This allows them the ability to experience AFFC Hair Studios and not have to book online. 

We also offer shipping of our units (you can purchase our virgin hair or send us yours)!!


You can check out hundreds of photos and videos on our Instagram: @AFFCHairStudios or check us out on YouTube: AFFC Hair Studios


Hope to sew you all soon!

This has always been a concern with having people make me wigs..How do you know if they switched your hair out.

I don't make closures. However, I do use a wig making technique that will yield the same results as a lace closure.

^^^ Hotlanta I will check your work out on Instgram..
Fly honey seems ok but I"m not impressed with her cut and style..
I think Trubella and Nisha cuts and styling are banging
