Many of you have been so complimentary in your comments about my pieces and have said that once you are ready to take the leap into trying a topper, you hope you have the luck that I have. For the most part, you’re right…for someone as picky as I am (particularly when it comes to color), I’ve had a pretty decent string of luck when it comes to the synthetic hairpieces I own. Until now.
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY! There was no time to fix the lighting, fix the makeup, fix nothing. I had to be sure you could see the look on my face (and really, if I can get past the *awfulness* of this hair all I can think about is the massive wrinkle between my brows).
I made this pic nice and large so you can fully appreciate it. And no, while it looks like it, I am not naked here!
Although you can see the tag hanging off it, I’m calling this my “mystery topper” for now so as not to scare anyone off; this company does make a few toppers.
I saw this topper on one of my hairloss friends, and it was so sleek and pretty, so I’m not exactly sure what happened here. I contacted Kathy at Gallery of Wigs and showed her a picture of both the rat’s nest on my head, as well as the pic of my friend. She immediately looked into it and found out that there was some issue with the packaging that caused the hair to spiral curl. I’m not exactly sure how that would happen, but I’ll take her word for it. She didn’t address the awful, mega permatease. For those of you that don’t know what permatease is, it’s hair (usually wiry) underneath the top layer to help give the hair lift and body. I could probably appreciate a little volume, however, the bang area on this piece was ready for take-off.
In short, this piece was all kinds of wrong.
Kathy, as usual, was awesome. She contacted the company directly and had them ship her the “correct” topper. She checked the quality and then shipped it to me, along with a pre-paid return label so I could send this one back. She assured me that the new topper was “divine”.
You’ll have to wait until the next post to see if it is.
