Wig Stores

I am just wondering if anyone knows any decent wig stores in the Portland, Oregon or Eugene area?

I do not personally know of any in your area, but the way I have found them where I am was by going to their websites which you can get with "wig stores , city" and seeing if they advertise their brands of wigs.  Good brands for beginners are Revlon, Jon Renau Louis Ferre, and Raquel Welch, and some others too. Motown Tresses are a good brand for people with dark very curly hair. If they carry those brands and are in a safe area of your town call them ahead of time and ask.  Wig stores are accepting places generally speaking since they do not care who buys their stuff.  The reason I am answering this way is because we do not have a whole load of members in your area.

Hi, Paris.  I agree with what Vicky said.  Most wig stores are happy to welcome any customers.  If you are nervous about trying on wigs, ask if they can give you some privacy.  Most will do all they can to accommodate your needs.  Be sure to tell the proprietor what style and length you're looking for; that will help them narrow down your choices.  Also, if you have a max price in mind, tell them that, too.

 

Natural hair wigs can be pricey, but even good quality monofilament or other man made materials can be expensive.  But hair is one of the first things people notice about you, so get the best you can afford, something that fits your face and natural hair and skin tone.  The last thing you want to do is get something that looks like it was meant for a Halloween party (unless, of course, you're going to a Halloween party).

 

Best of luck!

Completely agree. Also, it's fun to go try on new looks.

 

I've got a great little store just around the corner. I'm going to be very sad if the Stay At Home mandate kills them off.

 

Hugs!

I have bought wigs from Paula Young and the Wig Store, both online. I was too afraid to go wig shopping in person. The wigs that I bought were not expensive, I think I only paid 30 dollars for them, but they were on sale. People thought  that it was my real hair. If you go to my profile there is a picture of me with one of my wigs. When I stopped wearing them people commented on my new haircut.

I have bought from Wilshire Wigs out of N. Hollywood for 20 years.  These are quality wigs that look extremely realistic. A cheap looking wig will draw a lot of unwanted attention.

I have actually gone to their brick and mortar store to get several of my wigs.  They have very good stuff.

      On another note, I found out today that I don't get put on the GCS list with my surgeon until my insurance approves the surgery. I really hope that it happens soon. Please wish me well 🥴

      Nice. I love it. I've never seen this before.

      It’s another slow day at work and I’m having trouble staying awake. I pray to the Goddess that this mug of unicorn blood will restore some vitality.

      @Elizabeth Star in the state of Ohio it is or at least I don't want to go through process more than once of I can.  
    • Jamie68
      It was last on my list also, at least the gender change on SS card. I just got my name changed on SS card since it's a long process to get a birth cert. from Puerto Rico. It takes over a month. They sent back my application once already saying my money order was wrong amount, and also said I needed a lawyer to submit it, which is incorrect. I resubmitted about 3 weeks ago. Still waiting for response.
    • Jamie68
      Yay! It's an awesome feeling. Congrats.
    • Elizabeth Star
      You have to change your birth certificate first?  That’s currently last on my list.    It’s always good whenever you can be yourself. A good haircut can doing amazing things for self affirmation and easing dysphoria. At least it did for me. I agree with what Jackie said about the comfort zone. You may learn something new about yourself.

      @Mroz All the good advice and vibes above are spot on, and as you are probably finding out as a spouse / support person already, learning, listening, and empathy are all really important. When there is a new couple in my support group, I usually mention these things...   Everything about transitioning takes time for both partners, so do things in bite-sized portions and at a manageable pace. Make sure to give yourself mental breaks from transitioning too; don't let it become your whole world even though its a really big part of it now.   As a spouse / support partner, don't feel bad if some things just "don't sit right" anymore between you two. Some things can be accepted like getting used to snoring or conceding to the fact she spends way too much time gaming. Other things might take a little more creativity to overcome or are deal breakers. Just remember that neither of you are wrong, its just a question of compatibility. And believe it or not, we all change as we grow older, so compatibility questions will crop up eventually; you just hit the lottery this time!   Both of you should see a therapist, and I generally advise it being separate professionals. Your partner will be focusing on a lot of physical, social, and emotional issues of transitioning and will need a therapist well-versed in non-binary and gender-based topics. As a spouse / support partner, you will have a whole set of different issues usually starting with how to reconcile your own sense of self with a new reality you were not expecting, and how to do that while still being supportive of your partner.   Everything else is just going to happen for both of you, and no two transition stories are alike. Have a plan but don't over-plan, have goals but keep a flexible time table, and have some fun with it! For every "bad" story we all share about transitioning, there are at least two more good things that happen, so live for those moments! Good luck on your journey together!

      @Elizabeth Star congrats. I'm still waiting for my new birth certificate to come so I can get my SS and Driver's licenses changed then tackle insurance, estate planning and credit cards..... Sadly no dress makes me look good yet - I'm still in the gas to the floor and clutch in - with family and wanting surgery.

      @Maddee my mentor is my music producer who is currently suffering from a brain tumor. He was the only one who really encouraged me musically and although I had 2 brothers (they never supported me) he was my older brother in truth who advised me and looked out for me. He produced an album for me that almost got my band signed to Atlantic Records (dang band imploded) and then we went to Nashville where he and another friend who played in The Dillards recorded demoes and we just ran out of money. Over the years we co-ran Leon Russell's old studio in Tulsa called tThe Church, where Tom Petty first recorded with Mudcrutch and tRoger Linn created the Linn drum and all the Beatles as well as Bob Marley recorded.  Only his brain tumor he was stuill advising and encouraging me and using ProTools via DropBox to mix my songs. His name is Rod Seagram and if you look up The American Music Association - he was one of the founding board members.

      After almost two months of silliness I finally got my new social security card. I just to ooo and ahhh at it all day. It also meant a trip to our main office so hr could see the physical card and get a copy for file. Just so happened I am also wearing my green, skull covered dress. I think I like that office a little better sometimes, I got 5 compliments on my dress.

      Ronny.  He was like 30 years older.  Pro security contractor.  Marine. "Injustice collector".  Played semi pro football into his 40s  We rock n rolled together.  Hung out.  He took me to ball games.  Secured my gigs.  Lot of living advice.  We weren't a couple but it was something.  I knew he was gone before anyone told me. Everything went to hell without you. RIP
