I need a new shaitel but I need to figure it out financially. Shaitel macher a won't give me a straight answer so I'm asking here. I heard they all went up in price. I live in NY. How much is a middle of the road weekday shaitel, like Sary, Irene, Bella (are those middle of the road in terms or cost and quality?).

If there are sales is it worth buying now (take from emergency fund) or better save a bit each montj for the next little while? I don't want prices to go up again. But it's not really an emergency.

Bottom line:
How much do I need to save/find money for?
Do I take from our emergency fund and pay ourselves back or do I save some each month?

What state do you live in? Fortune has great sales on mazali for about $700-$900 and I got 2 . They’re stunning.

Irenes without a lace front I think are 2000. The price usually goes up in January so you’re probably not going to see a price increase for 6 months- a year.
That’s the brand I would most recommend out of the others you listed.

If you’re driving distance to the five towns. Red carpet wigs is a consignment wig shop that sells gently used and beautiful wigs for big discounts. She sells every brand, color, and style. I just bought a beautiful wig from there for much less than $1000. I highly recommend the place.

I just paid 1800 for the 14 inch and my SM told me the 16 inch would be another couple of hundred.
The Irene was the around a 50 dollar difference for the equivalent length...

Oh, blonde is more expensive. Eva and Chloé blondes are nicer than Irene's and are about $1900.

The wig I bought was not lace.
Sheitel Macher added the baby hairs on her own and did not charge extra
The cap fit so no need to remove wefts or take in/expand

I paid $1,360 total.

21" is a bit below the shoulder on me. Not much - maybe 2 inches
