avoid if you're looking for wigs
It's not Beverly Hills, it's Oakland..this i didn't mind. i went into the place looking for a wig. i'm ethnic, thus it was difficult to find the type of wig that wasn't ""glossy"" or just plain ""wiggish""..never found one..When i walked in, the Asians can barely speak English.
I was directed to go to the ""wig room"" which was basically an open space with a counter. An old woman was helping people find the ""right"" wig. i sat in horror watching this old asian woman telling several clients at different times: ""This rook good"" ""This rook good on you""..There was one woman in particular, a heavy set African american lady whom the wig lady donned a brassy blonde fall wig on. When the ""Wig lady"" walked away ..the young lady looked over at me and asked ""Excuse me, what do you think?"" i gave the ""slash across the throat"" gesture..she said, ""I thought so""..i pointed to a wig that was far more fitting..she tried it on, and liked it..
i realized the wigs that the ""Wig lady"" says ""rook good"" are the most expensive in their collection - which wasn't saying much..i tried on a few, and didn't like the selection at all, just cheap wigs..as i was walking out, the ""wig lady"" said ""you pay one dolla"" it was for the wig cap..these were strewn on a desk, and you had to put them back when you were done...they actually looked like used black knee-high stockings..
i gave her $20.00, she didn't have change, pointed to the front to go get it..at the front the woman said, ""you have to wait for someone to buy something, i can't give you change""..so i walked out..there was hardly anyone in there TO buy anything in the first damn place...
