I have been extremely unhappy with the experience I had here. I was looking forward to using this salon, having seen so many great reviews. When I had my first visit the owner, Mati, was very personable but I had been told over the phone the prices varied from 1500 to 2500. Guess which end mine was at? I was told it would cost 2600. because the wig I wanted (shoulder length curly dark hair) had to be ordered special. I'm not rich but I figured given the reviews, I might just get what I paid for and have a long term quality wig. I let them know I would be in town for only 8 weeks and they assured me that wouldn't be a problem.
I put down a 500 dollar deposit and had to call repeatedly when 7 weeks were upon me. The owner wouldn't take my call, finally on one of my last days in town they called me annoyed and said ""If you want to see the owner you must be here by 5 today"" It was already noon. I canceled an appointment made it and wound up waiting for the owner for half an hour anyway while the staff acted very put out.
All of the afore mentioned is not anything I wouldn't overlook for a good wig. It turns out the wig I waited so long for was mostly sewn in layers that don't even take too long. Only the scalp was as promised. I had said I wanted the hair even all over the head. I thought it would be like the one I came in with and told them I liked (and paid less for). NO way this was worth 2600 dollars. You can see lumps where the seams are and when the hair moves apart from wind or just brushing, you see the cap weave! Very fake. The worst part of the entire thing is the hair was so overprocessed it is SO thin. Even though there is an abundance of it, it's so thin it is impossible to keep from knotting up. This, I have learned, is what happens with low quality wigs. I
If I had paid a few hundred for this it wouldn't be so bad but I feel very robbed to be walking around in a wig that only looked good the day I walked out of the salon (and I know how to care for my hair). It's not a great idea to get dark curly hair on a wig because they can be overprocessed. I also said I would rather go lighter than get a dark wig that would turn red. Guess who is now getting called ginger. face palm. never again
