What do these gorgeous ladies have in common? They're all wearing a Shuly Wig!
Come on ladies, we've all been there - at the right place, in the perfect dress, but our hair was just so wrong! It may seem trivial but a bad hair day can really put a gal in a not-so-pretty mood. With the exception of the jheri curl (I will be eternally grateful to my Mom for vetoing that desire), I've probably had every hair style under the sun - braids, natural, relaxed, weaves, twists, and everything in between. I've even experimented with wigs but I've been dismayed at how fake they can look and how uncomfortable they can feel.
A Shuly wig on her head and one in her hand - lucky girl!
Inspired by proud wig wearing celebs, like talk-show host Wendy Williams, more women are wearing wigs and no longer feel embarrassed about it. And, if you're really serious, you'll follow Wendy's lead and invest in an exceptional wig by Shuly.
I was recently invited to a press event in NYC to meet Shuly and her fabulous wigs. I was so impressed by the quality that I hopped the subway a week later to visit her showroom in Brooklyn and to try on a few more wigs. The quality of the hair is superb and I am amazed at how Shuly is able to get such fullness in a wig without it feeling heavy or uncomfortable.
I've been Shuly-fied! What do you think of yours truly in a Shuly wig?
Shuly is a dynamic lady who started making wigs at her kitchen table. Today, she is one of the most sought after wigmakers in the industry. Although, her primary customer base has been Orthodox Jewish women who are required to wear a sheitel (wig) when they get married, news of Shuly's exceptional talent reached the fashion industry and her wigs have been featured in Essence, Elle, Vogue, and even the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She has deftly navigated honoring her traditions while making wigs available to women of all cultures and faiths. Although the motivations may be different, during our conversation Shuly stated that at the end of the day all women want to look beautiful. So true!
Shuly Wigs start at about $850 but with proper upkeep they can last 3-6 years - a great investment. Each wig is made from the finest natural hair from Europe or South America and comes with a one-year limited warranty. Unlike wigs you may pick up at the local beauty supply, Shuly Wigs are customized to your head so the fit is perfect. And, you can always make adjustments to your wig, such as adding highlights and layers. While I was at the Shuly showroom, I observed several women from the neighborhood dropping off their wigs to be washed and styled. I love the idea of sending my hair out for styling! And, with a Shuly wig, you'll never have to worry about a bad hair day while you are on vacation.
Shuly Wigs is located in Brooklyn at 4016 18th Avenue. For more information, visit their website.
