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.

I live up in the Bay Area and they have always provided me with excellent service.

      Not gonna lie my mind was recently in a dark place and recently been thinking of just giving up. My parents are only making it harder to breathe with each waking moment. I am only allowed 2 hours to complete all my homework, which is not enough time and now I am falling behind and I can't seem to catch up no matter how hard I try. They took away my school notebooks. They took away all my venting outlets and I have to be downstairs all day. They don't let me sleep and I am scared to even breathe for the fear of somehow being wrong. My moving date has only been pushed out farther because I am a child of a military parent and have to go to a place that is currently closed so I can't get my POA and can't move. I feel like being tortured would be more humane than the life that I am living and would be more than happy to just give up here and now.    BUT   On my chrome book, I have YouTube open on auto play as I try and relieve some of my stress by writing a story. Just when those dark thoughts start to fill my mind and I really start questioning why I am still trying the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" Starts playing, and that was the song they played at my Mom's funeral and I just have such a strong emotional attachment to that song. I have never looked up that song on this chrome book and it was completely random, it felt like my mom was trying to send me a message. This might just be my childlike mind jumping to conclusions, but I really miss my mom and would like to think that she is watching over me in some way or form.

      I have considered this. Particularly the gene manipulation. Without having read too much into it, I imagine performing targetted gene alteration is complex and far from perfected. Most likely as the science is now, it is unachievable without negatively altering an undesirable part of the sequence, as such causing a mutation in it. But in theory it's possible. Someday, we may have the ability to alter our endogenous endocrine profile...

      Be safe and have a speedy recovery! I'm hopeful it's nothing too serious. We'll be waiting to hear from y'all! 💕

      Rise and shine Time to get to the grind!  You gotta shave face to save face or so they say, eh!  It's sandpaper rough,  but when the going gets tough ol' Remington 'll wash it away!    So get out of bed brush that pretty head Chin up Smile  Now get out there & knock 'em dead!      (Shaving: *gives me dysphoria* Me: *makes vaudeville style humor out of it) Well, if you can't laugh at yourself then why bother...   ~Toni

      Oh Tess. Keep doing what you're doing, what makes you happy. Love yourself, take care of yourself. Just know the clothes aren't what make you Tessa. You are!    Last summer, I, as much as possible, wore frilly skirts and flip flops, and tight, showy tanktops, and accessories and makeup all the time. Was very validating. Still is quite frankly. But it was cold this past winter, my work schedule increased (and has a tight dress code), and I moved to a more dangerous neighborhood. I still dress and present casually fem full time. Capris instead of skirts when I leave the house. Makeup about half the time. But I still realize I'm the woman I am when I leave the house, however I dress. It's intrinsic now. It's just who I am, and I have found peace in that.    You're lovely just the way you are 💕   ~Toni

      Kelly, most of us have times when we've put our dreams aside for one reason or another.  Sometimes we put them aside for years thinking we'll never see them come true.  But then something happens and they do come true.  You have to keep hoping and taking whatever steps you can, when you can.  Journeys can take years, but every journey starts with a dream.  Please keep your dream alive.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Unfortunately, that has not seemed to be the case, Suzanne, with rare exceptions.  Then again, I suspect you're being sarcastic anyway.  Sarcasm is hard to detect either when masked or visible only through script on a screen.   Carolyn Marie

      Over a year ago, when I told my Doctor I was interested in starting HRT, she was a bit surprised, cause I had never mentioned anything to her before. I mentioned to her that I had started using an initial starting several months prior, cause I had been slowly moving away from "my old self.' We had a good laugh about it, cause she had noticed it, but never thought to ask.

So if it ment to be ill well become  what i truly  am for once  .  Prayer  welcome  hugs

      I was born in Washington State and now reside in Washington state so my ID and legal document changes were relatively simple. Everything was done in the state of my residency (WA) the name change more specifically in my county of my residency (Snohomish County). My birth certificate was done here in Washington too but that would’ve been the only document that I would’ve had to file out of state if I was born out of state.  In your case that will likely end up being Indiana.   Here is a good resource to search this info in case you haven’t seen it. https://transequality.org/documents/state/north-carolina https://transequality.org/documents/state/indiana   These ID and document changes are pretty straight forward but a lawyer is always an option but overkill if you do a little research. You can always call you county courthouse to get the details for the name change.   Most (if not all by now) State DMV’s are linked to your Social Security so if you change your drivers license you‘ll need to change your SS ID card/info within 30 days. When I did my driver’s license and SS last year, I needed a letter from my PCP which stated, “Susan Rxxxxx has received the appropriate clinical treatment for the new gender of female“ which is no longer required in our state for a DL but is still required for a gender change on your Social Security account.  I did name change, drivers lic., and SS all before noon on the same day. It was very fast.   I changed all my Passport and Birth Certificates if you need that info..it should be located within those URL’s though. if not, feel free to PM me if you have any trouble.   Best of Luck, Susan R🌷

      I could be mistaken, but I think she meant "luck".   I asked  Shawna if it would be okay with her if I relayed a play by play to the rest of the TP community. Her response was to quote our mantra: 1 + 1 = 1. So in other words 'I trust your judgement'. Angela has also graciously volunteered to call me with any updates. And I have her cell if I'm just plain overcome by worry or curiosity. Shawna and I talked for our usual 3 hours on the phone tonight, just encouraging her for tomorrow with a focus on what the coming months and years will be like. We also discussed what questions were most pertinent to ask the surgeon regarding routine pathology specimens vs frozen sections, etc   This is a lot of nervous energy and worry on my part. But I've never had a loved one go under anesthesia without me being there for support. So, it's gonna be hard for me not to be there, but I think she's in good hands with Angela.    I'm going to try and get some sleep, but I'll post as often as I can tomorrow   Hugs!   Patti Annt

      You know I love you I want to be good The burning glint of light off the hood If I could catch you drive drive drive All the way west sun burning my eyes I got so scared when I got to boulder Saying somethings gotta give is worse than your cold shoulder Older now. Bleed it out. Back on the road have to get back south. Rise with the heat and try to sleep when it's cooler Try to be good hold my hand for the ruler Brace for the slap but none Whatever you want to say to me I will wait til you're done

      If given access to the necessary information and specialists, i would definitely volunteer for the procedure.  Risks be darned. Of course, it's pretty easy to say that now, but still...it's been my one most visceral desire.

      So im not sure where to put this topic, so if it needs to be moved, feel free.   I was just doing some minor research on doing a gender marker and name change. I was born in Indiana, but live in North Carolina.    Do i have to follow Indiana gender and name chance policies or do i follow North Carolina policies?  The Indiana policies require state id and filing with the court in the county you live in. Does this mean i file here in NC for the Indiana change? Or do i file in NC even though i was not born here?   Should i seek a lawyers help on these matters?     Hugz ❤️ Kali
