Brooklyn, NYC Springtime in New York. What could be better than trying out a new hairstyle or color to go along with your spring makeup? Sometimes we forget that hair is perhaps our greatest beauty accessory. Maybe that's why we're afraid of change because if it's wrong, we have to live with it until it grows out!
As an editor and model, I really can't afford any down time due to a bad cut or color job. Adding in that most of the time I'm traveling on short notice and may not be able to schedule an appointment with my stylist. That's why every fashion forward woman should have at least one or two quality wigs in her bag of style tricks. Every working model is fully familiar with hair extensions, add on falls and wiglets.

Unless you're Lady Gaga or Kim Zolciak (Housewives of Atlanta & Don't Be Tardy) an over the top hairstyle that looks decidedly "wiggy" may not be the way to go. However for appearing in public, professional engagements and travel, you are going to want something natural and flattering.
Fortune Wigs, NYC
This family owned and run establishment is located in Brooklyn and offers online as well as walk in appointments. Most NYC models will go to a dedicated wig salon like Fortune Wigs to have the hair matched or checked against skin tone and "cut in" or styled directly on them. This is important because here you have access to some of the top stylists in the city customizing the hairpiece to your individual specifications. Fortune Wigs further sets themselves apart by offering Virgin European Human Hair which is indisputably the finest in the world.

The Salon Experience
Everyone at Fortune Wigs was so helpful and friendly. They treated me like a princess! The selection was incredible and they can even customize your piece with additional hair or highlights / lowlights. All of the pieces I tried on were extremely light, comfortable and natural looking. Esther Tobias is the lead stylist and Fortune Wigs is built on her incredible artistry and reputation. When you order online, your hair selection comes to you in a lovely black round soft box with a mirror. Perfect for traveling! I was so pleased that I look forward to going back again as this was a amazing beauty makeover experience.
|Each quality hairpiece ships in its own soft travel case.|
Since the hair piece I selected is very close in texture to my own hair, I am able to treat it just like my own! I use Calista Ion Hot Rollers which are very gentle on my hair. Virgin European Hair like this has not been processed or colored so it is soft, silky and very healthy. Fortune Wigs sells only human hair pieces and has Kosher Certification for women who cover their hair for religious requirements. Wear it up or down. Back in a pony tail or in an up sweep. The choice is yours without the commitment of changing your own natural hair color or texture. Whether you've had hair loss due to medical conditions or a cut/color that's just not working for you, Fortune Wigs can be a lifesaver and change your world.
