Miss Violet Lace

High Quality Hand-Altered Wigs + Botanical Beauty . . .

Endless years of wreaking havoc on my hair from overprocessing led me to make the difficult decision to cut nearly all of my hair off in 2010. I searched for a way to feel like myself again, but was met with disappointment upon discovering that there were not realistic hair pieces available on the market...that's when everything changed.

With an exceptional passion for hair, intense adoration for style transformation and a dream, Miss Violet Lace was created. I began my venture into the world of hair with a humble heart and modest mindset, hoping that I could offer wigs to others in a similar situation.

MVL became so much more than I imagined, offering freedom to instantly change without the damage, comfort and joy to those who have undergone chemotherapy or struggle with conditions such as alopecia that affect hair, playful pieces for events, parties and cosplay.

DISCOVER THE PROCESS . . .
your wig, from my studio to your home

THE BASE
I begin my work with a plain base wig. I work with an open weft cap design mainly, though some wigs do have a netted design. Both offer comfort and functionality. Both cap designs allow for air movement to keep the hair piece breathable and lightweight, making it suitable for both short and long term wear. Open weft design is an excellent choice for individuals with a sensitive scalp, since there is less material making contact with your skin.

MY WORK
I alter each and every wig by hand implementing a variety of self-taught methods, from the deconstruction of a base to reconstructing into a wearable piece; extensively hand cutting for natural feel and movement, styling and redesigning to create a genuinely unique, high quality hair piece that will last for years to come with proper care.

CUSTOMIZATION
Much like each wig is unique, so are you! Ensuring that your wig fits comfortably and securely is an important part of the process, so I offer options to help you customize your wig. Select from a small, average or large fit based on your head size. I hand cut and stitch according to the provided measurements (a drop down menu in each wig listing makes the process seamless for you). Heavy duty wig clips are also an add-on option to aid in a no-shift, strong hold that gets you through all-day wear, midnight dance parties and possibly multiple rollercoaster rides. The clips snap open, slide beneath your wig cap into your own hair, and snap closed for super security.

PACKAGING
Finished wigs are stored neatly in a dust and light-free environment until you place an order. From the moment you purchase, I examine your wig to ensure it is up to my personal quality standards. It gets gently brushed out, touched up if needed, packaged with care and sent via USPS to you.

Frequently asked questions
CUSTOM FIT

Most wigs have an average fit (around 22 inches/55.88 cm head circumference).

Each wig has elasticated straps with hooks on the ends, that hook into loops at the inside bottom of the wig for a smaller fit.

MEASURING YOUR HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE

Using a soft tape measure, wrap it all around your head, keeping it at your hairline from ear to ear. At the front of your head, position in the center of your forehead. 



Small cap size is ideal for 21 inches (53.34 cm) or smaller head circumference, large cap size is ideal for 23 inches (58.42 cm) or larger head circumference.

*Individuals with long and/or thick hair may find the large cap size to be a more comfortable fit.

WIG CARE

Brush your wig gently with a small round barrel brush after each wearing, beginning at the bottom of the hair and gradually working your way up. Take care to not pull hard on the hair, but rather work in small sections to gently work out tangles.

Wash 1-2x per month with synthetic wig shampoo, or any time you feel your hair piece needs extra freshness.

I recommend only gently finger styling very tight/curly styles instead of brushing, to help retain the style.

COLOR

Colors may vary slightly depending on your personal computer monitor settings. I wholeheartedly attempt to accurately represent colors.

When can I expect to receive my order?

Ready to ship items mail out in 2-6 business days (I aim to ship ready to ship items twice weekly!); preorder wigs ship 2-4 weeks after an order is placed.

After I have shipped the order, these are the average times of arrival:

/ / For U.S. residents, on average...
First class: 2-5 business days
Priority: 2-3 business days
Express: 1-2 business days

/ / For international residents:
First class: 2-4 weeks
Priority: 7-10 business days
Express: 3-5 business days

Ordering ready to ship and preorder wigs together?

If your order contains a preorder wig along with a ready to ship wig, I will hold the order until all wigs are ready to mail out.

If you would like the ready to ship wig to mail out first, please place a separate order for it.
