Did you get a ribbon front wig? Are you happy? What brand and what price range? Have you had a lace top you can compare it to?

Thanks all!

My coworker got one. I noticed its much flatter front that what I used to wear when I owned skin tops. Is it as flat as lace..I would say not. I believe she paid 2400 but I dont know which brand.

Ty!
Are you happy? Can you tell me how it’s diff than a skin top or lace top?
Also does anyone here have experience with an Eva and Chloe ribbon front and know the price range?

I didn't really wear it yet- I literally just got it.
I don't wear lace for tznius reasons and it's definitely flatter than my regular skin top.
The Eva and Chloe is a few hundred dollars more...

I didn't specifically look for a ribbon front when looking for a new wig- but from what I tried on, this looked the best...

Ok ty for the info! Hope you enjoy your new wig.

Can I ask does it feel lighter weight than a skin top? Or same type of cap construction?

I’m not exactly sure. I’m hearing it looks better than a regular skin top but it’s not a lace top- for those who don’t want for tznius or durability reasons

That is really cheap. My friend just bought an Irene ribbon front and paid over 2. How is she so cheap?

I had a lace top when I first got married and hated the maintenance of it. It kept ripping. I wanted a skin top but something maybe a little softer and not as sheitely. I got a ribbon from Chaya heiligman last year and absolutely love it. I got an Irene. It’s definitely not as natural as a lace top but far more sterdy and just more comfortable. It’s a skin top cap with the ribbon in front. Very comfortable.

I just got myself a ribbon front but no experience wearing it.

It's a lace top but folded over so the edge is slightly thicker. Some people have it lined too to make it less natural and flimsy.

The point of it is to have a flat top but not as natural and high maintanance.

I have Irene ribbon.. it's the Soliel line.

I bought one last year and am buying now another one.

It is a regular cap with a thin ribbon attached at the end of the cap/ on the forehead. So it's flatter.

Definitely not as flat as lace top. But much easier maintenance.

Feels the same as a skin top.

The Irene Soliel is currently on sale. I bought a 23" for $1650 last month.

I have one for tznius reasons. I love it. It's more versatile like I can do things to the front I can't do with a skin top

I bought an Eva and Chloe ribbon front by chaya Heiligman
Price depends on length
I think I paid around 2200 including cut for a little longer than my shoulder
I got a second identical one bought and cut by rochel schwartz for $2600
Both are beautiful

That is such a good price for an Irene, are they half off? Is it everywhere?

I think Irene sale is everywhere. Not sure..

I bought in Lakewood. Where are you located?

Perhaps you can call Irene directly.
