I am so happy to see the topic of headcoverings addressed! BH we have come a long way since women were ashamed to wear wigs. That being said, what happened to the Rebbe’s words that a full sheitel brings full brochos and a half a sheitel half the brochos?

I think you should listen to the recording. I heard it will be posted.

Just for the record, you can request to have your Hustle Wig customized to have the entire top covered in hair if that is what you prefer.
A friend of mine did it.

I am on the fence about lace front wigs. I understand the Inyan is that the hair should be covered but sometimes I really didnt realize it was a wig and thought, “Oh my did they get divorced and took off their wig?” Im not saying we should be like williamsburg but Im trying to understand what is the right approach.

Because the purpose is

Because the purpose of a wig is for people’s hair to be covered. The purpose is not for people to know you’re married or not.

Was just thinking this morning how Sheitels need to become more of a community discussion.
And among the topics, how beautiful Sheitels can become more affordable. They are now 7000. It’s unaffordable for the average frum woman. And while I understand. That Sheitels. Nowadays include allot of handiwork, and people need to make money, i wish there was a better way.

Buy from the manufacturer!

I agree 💯. It’s out of hand how much wigs can cost!
There are a few Facebook groups how to buy wigs from China (where, I’m guessing a large amount of wigs being sold in CH is from).
I already got 2 beautiful lace top wigs from there, one was $800 one was $500!!

I know this won’t work for everyone, but for me it was definitely worth the gamble!

Less judging! More listening!

It was fascinating. And many ppl wearing hats on top of their Shaitel are actually wearing FULL coverings underneath them and simply like the look – if the hat fell off they would still be 100% covered. So full on brochos there. Let’s keep the discussion going – while looking beautiful!
