Frequently Asked Questions:
CAN PEOPLE TELL I'M WEARING A WIG? Today, wigs are almost indistinguishable from a natural head of hair. Hand-tied baby hair or inside "hidden" wefting along the front gives a realistic hairline. Today's synthetic fibers are much thinner than they used to be, and thus avoid a bulky, "wiggy" look.
They are also as soft and pliable as real hair for a gentle "move-as-you-move" action. In many ways, synthetic wigs are easier to handle than natural hair because wig fibers keep the style and shape intact day after day.
ARE WIGS UNCOMFORTABLE? Years ago, wigs were made with caps that were definitely hot and sticky. Today, with the invention of capless wigs, lengths of fibers called wefts are sewn to cotton or lace stretch bands that shape to the head yet allow plenty of air to circulate.
WHAT COLOR SHOULD I CHOOSE? Choose a color that is as close as possible to your natural color. If hair loss is a possibility in the future, save a swatch of your own hair for a match. You can always go a shade lighter than your own hair, but avoid going darker. Chic has a wide range of salon-inspired hair colors, so you should be able to easily find the shade that is right for you.
ARE WIGS EXPENSIVE? The belief that all wigs are expensive is simply untrue. Wigs, like any piece of apparel, vary in price depending on the materials and craftsmanship. They can cost as little as $50 or more than $3,000. Some insurance companies will allow you to claim your wig. Ask your doctor to write a prescription for a "hair prosthesis," and ask your wig professional to state the same on the sales receipt. You may want to do this at tax time as well.
WILL I HAVE TO TRY ON A WIG IN FRONT OF OTHERS? Our experienced wig consultants are sensitive to your needs and will do everything they can to show you an area where you will have privacy. In addition, they can help you select a style and color that's right for you, demonstrating how to put on a wig and instruct you in easy wig care methods.
Remember to let your wig consultant know that you are looking for a wig, so she can direct you to a dressing room or private area when the need arises.
IS THERE A CONSULTATION FEE? "Yes," there is a fee of $35 for a 30 minute professional consultation. However, with the purchase of a wig, the fee will be deducted from the total cost.
