I was in search of something ""temporary"" between hairstyles..unfortunately, the drawbacks of the Wig Palace were: There is no parking space available..If you try parking in the Well's Fargo Bank lot, you might get towed away..There is a security guard there to ensure this during bank hours.
We walked in, the shop was pleasant, and clean, but the moment the proprietor saw us, she knew, and we knew, she couldn't be of any service to us..
Most of the wigs were for caucasion/asian clientele..long falls, and short sassy looks that were too ""glossy"" for someone of ethnic background to wear..
This is quite understandable..there neighborhood is mostly populated with Asian/caucasion types..other ethnicities in this region are rare..She didn't bother to keep us there, nor did we even bother to stay..
My boyfriend, being caucasion is having one heck of any eye opening experience regarding ethnic marketing..
