Beauty Trends vs De Novo Hair
Wigs are becoming more and more popular each year for people of all ages and ethnicity. Not only are wigs super convenient in today's hectic times, but the latest wigs are so realistic that changing a hair style only takes a few moments.
Today, a few local wig boutiques exist, but they can be very expensive and usually offer only a limited selection. Many wig owners are finding that the largest selection of wigs and best pricing can be found when shopping for wigs online. But which wig companies provide the best shopping experience, and top quality, affordable wigs?
Beauty Trends brings experience to the table when it comes to their expansive selection of wigs. This company started 25 years ago in St Louis Missouri and provides a straightforward shopping experience.
The wig brands available at Beauty Trends includes Revlon, BT Classic, Carefree Me, Beauty Trends, and Jon Renau. The search may be completed via the brand of wig. Also, by clicking on "Wigs" a decent list of categories becomes available allowing the shopper to narrow their effort by brand, hair type, head size, cap construction, length, style, face shape, and color. Customers will find approximately 250 wig options available at Beauty Trends as well as a nice selection of hair pieces. Beauty Trends seems to focus on synthetic wigs as we only saw a handful of human hair options.
From our sampling, the wig pricing at Beauty Trends was competitive with many other online retailers. Beauty Trends offers a wonderful 30 day return policy (minus close out items) if you're not satisfied with your wig purchase. Shipping is a little more expensive than we would have liked to have seen. Ground shipping (2 to 3 days) is a flat $10.95 or you may choose a more expedited option for much more.
Beauty Trends offers an easy shopping experience for those looking for a new wig. You won't find much in the way of human hair options at Beauty Trends but they do offer affordably priced synthetic wigs in a long list of hair styles. The organized website and excellent return policy really stood out at Beauty Trends.
De Novo Hair is a Baltimore based company that sells essentially three styles of custom, full lace, Indian Remy hair wigs. Each wig may be customized in color, length and size. De Novo Hair also sells a small selection of lace frontals and hair pieces. The shopping experience is a bit of a challenge with this website. Awkward navigation and selection keys left us confused, at times.
To shop the wig selection at De Novo Hair, the customer clicks on "In Stock Products" and finds a selection of precision cut, straight/uncut, and curly or wavy wigs . This is where the confusion starts. If you click on Precision cuts you're directed to three pictures listing again precision cut, uncut and wavy wigs. At this point, it appears their entire selection of wigs is limited to only 3 customizable options. However, after our third visit to the website we were surprised to find that if we clicked on "Styles Gallery" we would encounter over 150 different styles to choose from. De Novo also offers a nice option that allows customers to upload their own look to have stylists recreate.
It appears that many wigs at De Novo Hair are considered a custom purchase and shoppers can anticipate a 7-9 week time frame to complete. If an item is considered non-custom the shopper has 7 days to return. Custom orders may be exchanged for store credit which is great if the color and look don't work out. However, that does not include Unique Customer Color wigs which may not be returned or exchanged. The return and exchange rules are rather extensive and should be viewed prior to making a purchase.
De Novo Hair asks that 50% of the balance be paid at the time of order which is a non-refundable deposit. Shipping was a little pricey starting at $16 for ground and going up dramatically from there.
Overall, we think De Novo Hair provides high quality, beautiful wigs. We hope that in the future their online shopping experience dramatically changes for the better. When paying such a large sum of money, people want to feel confident in the effort and this website was just too confusing at times.
Not all wig retailers are the same. Before shopping for a new wig, you should consider the following factors:
