I’m feeling very overwhelmed at the thought of having to wear a wig. What can I expect when I come to your boutique?
Well firstly, Tammy makes you feel welcome and comfortable, instantly allaying your fear and concern. Tammy likes to sit down with her clients and have a chat to ensure she understands your needs.
She will probably discuss some of her experiences of hair loss from Alopecia and of wearing wigs and she will give you all the best tips on wearing and caring for your wig.
Will others know that I’m wearing a wig?
Tammy Lobato Wigs only stock the most realistic and natural looking wigs – the wigs that Tammy would be happy to wear herself, she refuses to stock the wigs that look like wigs.
Most of Tammy’s wigs are constructed with SmartLace which provide the most realistic appearance creating a natural hairline and scalp effect not found in other wigs.
Are wigs uncomfortable?
Many wigs can be uncomfortable and unsecure, Tammy has endured many of them. Tammy’s SmartLace and Mono Top wigs are made with the highest construction methods deliberately to create comfort from the smooth and silky surface inside the cap.
The fine welded lace front will conform to the shape of your head allowing for maximum styling versatility and the most secure fit available.
