Why do certain styles look longer/shorter on different people?

Customer Question:
I have to ask why some wigs look shorter on different people. For some reason the wigs, I only have one, look longer on me.
That is a fantastic question! Now, I also have a question for you, have you measured your face? (from your hairline to your chin) This measurement will help greatly with figuring what the length of a style will be on you, especially when it comes to those shorter, pixie cuts! I also have a very petite capsize and about a 7" long face. So, I know when I see a certain style has a fringe measurement of 3.75" (about 4"), I know it's most likely going to fall around my cheekbone, maybe a bit higher, like with Ivy by Noriko. I use this same trick for the side measurement as well. I find it really helps me determine if I'll like the length of a certain style.

Hello, I recently received my order. Everything seems fine but there is a problem that concerns me. In front of the lace there is this line which is not very obvious, but when I put it on my head it scared me a lot. I fear that because that line is exactly in front of my head it is so obvious that I am wearing a wig that anyone can tell from far away. I searched online, watched a lot of videos and pictures and couldn't find any line in any of them. (It is very noticeable so I am pretty sure they can't hide it.)

I’m going to order a Katherine wig. What is the closest color to Almond Rocka? As you may know, I also love the Almond Rocka! If only the 32BF had a brown base instead of an auburn one; then we’d be in business! None of the colors for Katherine have multi-tone highlights like Almond Rocka except 32BF — and it’s definitely a red.

What is Traction Alopecia?

September 22, 2020

There are many different forms of hair loss and just as many reasons for each one. Alopecia is the catch all name for hair loss and includes a type caused by traction - or a pulling force. You may be under the assumption that traction alopecia only occurs after wearing a super-tight style that causes the hair to be pulled from the roots.
