COLOR CLOSEOUT SALE ~
All colorful wigs are 50% off and are closeout. I will no longer be carrying adventurous colors. It has been a joy to work with all the colors of the rainbow, but I have decided to move in a different direction with my work.

Moving forward, I will be focusing on natural colors and styles, and I am looking forward to incorporating human hair in a small selection of pieces also.

Initially when I opened, my work leaned towards cosplay, costume and theatrical wear, and extreme alternative styles. As the years passed, I expanded into an assortment of natural colors and styles, and I have grown so much in my work. It has truly been a gift to bring joy and comfort to those with hair loss that are seeking a hair piece to wear daily, that is realistic in all aspects.

My intention moving forward is to continue to provide high quality hair pieces, entirely hand-cut, styled and redesigned, in a natural range of colors and cuts. They can be worn daily, and for any reason - many of my clients are seeking a hair piece due to hair loss from chemotherapy, alopecia, trichotillomania or thinning hair from endocrinological disorders, aging and more. However, they can also be worn if you want to simply change your hair color or length without the damage, time and commitment.

I look forward to bringing more lace frontal units for a realistic hairline, as well as human hair and blended wigs.

Miss Violet Lace

Hair and Beauty: how it all began...

> THE HAIR

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.

> THE BOTANICALS

I grew up surrounded by nature. When I was a child, we lived by a lake, where I spent long summer days running barefoot through green grass, making dandelion crowns and playing in the sun.

I hunted for "treasure" in the woods, uncovering fallen branches and moss, crunching leaves and climbing trees, taking in the sights, sounds and scent of the forest. I have always felt connected and grounded by the beauty and stillness of nature, so it was only fitting that I eventually found myself playing and experimenting with botanical essences in my studio.

I truly fell in love with the process. There is nothing as captivating and special as pure plant essences. The way that scents unfold, mingle together and blossom is nothing short of a miracle.

I am so thankful for each and every sale. It is an incredible treasure to be able to share my work with so many wonderful people, and I hope to continue to do so!

> THE WIG 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 2-3 business days; preorder wigs have varying ship times.

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.

Do you offer wholesale?

Yes, I do offer wholesale on many beauty products. I am currently working on putting together a linesheet. In the meantime, if you are interested in carrying my products, please message me and I will send over details!

> My work has been sold on Free People and featured in their catalog. I also worked with Engage! Summits to put together a special order for an event in the Cayman Islands, Willow & Sage magazine did a feature on my brand, and I made 5,000 perfumes by hand for an up and coming subscription box (now that was a feat!)

Whether you have a brick & mortar or online store, salon, subscription box, event company or you're sourcing for a wedding, I would love to hear the details and help you find the perfect products.

Miss Violet Lace products are not intended to treat, diagnose, prevent or cure disease. They are for external use only. Keep out of reach of children & pets.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, I recommend contacting your doctor before using products, as products may be too concentrated to be safely enjoyed.
