Sheitels and cuts:
If you were buying a new Sheitel, where would you go for the Sheitel and the cut, in Brooklyn?
Which places can you get a good deal (good quality, good customer service and reasonable)?May 15, 2011 3:25 am at 3:25 am #910751
No one buying Sheitels any more? Uh oh.May 15, 2011 5:21 am at 5:21 am #910752SGoldMemberMay 15, 2011 5:56 am at 5:56 am #910753ramateshkolianMember

ramat, pls find out!May 15, 2011 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm #910756
Thanks, the more info I get, the better. Im looking for a new place to buy/cut. The last Sheitel bought I had problems with. Im looking to switch. I appreciate it.
Raizy Klein – (718) 232-1212 (I never heard of her, does she sell and cut?)
Pessy Mayerson (I heard of her, I think she sells and cuts)
Naomi (I used to use her, she’s very good)
Toby Poll – (718) 431-2443 (does she sell and cut?)
Perele Pretter – (718) 851-1310 (does she sell and cut?)
Leah Rosenbaum – (347) 788-1944 (does she sell and cut?)
Im considering trying Tori because I hear theyre no pressure, if you dont like it, you’re not obligated. Is that true about Tori? Is that true about anyone else?
Thanks again.May 15, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #910757SGoldMember
Yes. They all cut & sell.May 15, 2011 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #910758aries2756Participant
Over the years I’ve found it really is a personal preference like doctors. One person will have an excellent experience while another will have a horror story. It is best to ask your own family and good friends who know you best.May 23, 2011 5:08 pm at 5:08 pm #910759
Who cuts well at Fortune Wigs (owned by Esther Tobias)?May 23, 2011 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #910760
are you only talking about bp? what about shifra perkowski?June 1, 2011 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #910761
Ive asked around and many tell me they’ve heard a lot about Raizy Klein.
Does she cut the sheitel into the style you want or insist/convince the customer that she knows better?
Many successful, sought after Sheitelmachers love to tell their customers that they’ll be happier doing it differently than what theyre asking for, and many times people kill their wigs when they listen.
TIA!July 11, 2011 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #910762
Im thinking of buying at Clary and I need someone who cuts sheitels not bought by them for a not outrageous price.
Anyone have opinions on Tony and her niece (forgot her name)? Telephone numbers?July 11, 2011 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #910763A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Years ago I bought a piece from Mendel Press. Is she still around and how does her selection and quality compare with the women you listed above? I still have that piece, recently cut it down to be a hat fall since the hair was fine, I just didn’t like the style of the front anymore, as it was dated.July 11, 2011 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #910764smartcookieMember
I cut a wig by Karym( 14and 59) and was quite happy. I know others who are satisfied with her work too. I lost her phine # though!July 11, 2011 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #910765VanillaMember
Karym’s number is 718.851.6915. Good Luck!July 11, 2011 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #910766
dini in monsey is amazing. I have a friend whos coming in from Brooklyn to get one (buy and cut) by her. shes amazing.July 12, 2011 2:41 am at 2:41 am #910767Miss L. AneousMember
adorable – Shifra is great! Her cut… her patience… everything about her, especially for a kallah – she really gives her time.July 12, 2011 3:39 am at 3:39 am #910768commonsenseParticipant
of, do you mean Toni and her sister Maria? I use Maria and she is a doll! She will do whatever you want. She does not have a store front so you need to call her to pick up your wig and then she does it in your house.July 12, 2011 5:37 am at 5:37 am #910769
How do Tony and all her relatives (herself, sister and niece) compare? How do they rate as far as popularity?July 12, 2011 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm #910770
Miss- when did I mention Shifra? are you talking about shifra perkowsky?July 18, 2011 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #910771
Which good Sheitelmachers are in the city during the summer, who cut wigs not bought by them? Please provide tel number.July 18, 2011 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #910772
Gloria (haircutter) at Claire accihair is a very good hairdresser. She cuts hair professionally in a salon, and will cut a wig from anywhere for you.
Does anyone know anything about the shaitels at Esther Aron( Brooklyn) or Yali’s in cedarhurst?July 18, 2011 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #910773just meParticipant
I just got a new wig from Claire Accuhair. They have something new that is less expensive. Gloria cut it for me. I am getting so many compliments. I didn’t know what I wanted and she was so patiant. She does cut wigs bought elsewhere. I think they are on vacation now. 718-998-6043July 18, 2011 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #910774
mom, thanks for trying, but I cant go to Claire, bec I went and didnt buy there. Also, I never heard of Gloria. Is she new?July 18, 2011 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #910775fix-it-upMember
i think this is rude to publicly post-wut if you exclude someone from the “Top names” list and a, she sees this and gets hurt or b, she looses business over it. Careful ppl!July 18, 2011 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #910776
Gloria has been there for years. She works in a salon in long island (John Louis David).July 18, 2011 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm #910777Putting my two cents inMember

Fix it up
I do agree with you, however recommending someone isn’t saying someone else is bad. I think it’s ok to say if someone did a good job. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked about specific people. I named those I heard good things about (which does not indicate that those not mentioned are bad/ just unfamiliar to the writer, as yet).December 18, 2011 9:32 am at 9:32 am #910779babygooseParticipant
Perri Israel is unbelievable, though good luck with getting an appointment.
iv’e never seen a bigger meivin then her.
i bought and cut by karym – she’s great but very cutious with cutting – affraid of making a mistake. i wouldn’t mind some confidence….July 18, 2012 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #910780RsozMember
How do we know that those touting certain shaitelmachers here (like Claire’s) aren’t The shAitelmacher the self trying to get herself customers?.?July 19, 2012 2:23 am at 2:23 am #910781
It’s a matter of trust. I also think it’s wise after hearing of someone of interest to ask around amongst friends to be sure you’re receiving reliable information.
The truth is it’s all a matter of personal opinion.July 19, 2012 2:51 am at 2:51 am #910782RebRYMember
If you are going to cut your sheitel you should cut it short like the chassidish shaitelech instead of the long litvish shaitelech.July 19, 2012 1:23 pm at 1:23 pm #910783
Are you also going to tell her how long to hem her skirts, or the color stockings (or #denier/thickness) to buy, or how much makeup to put on (if at all)? Perhaps we should leave these choices of lifestyle to the person living with them.July 19, 2012 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #910784RebRYMember
The long shaitelech are not tzniusdik. unfortanly a lot of people wear skirts that are not long enough. my wife had asked me if there is a shita that holds that the skirts don’t need to cover the knee when sitting down because she see so many women that have such skirts and I told her not that I know of but just because they do it does not mean it is right. with the stockings the litvish hold of a different shita that holds you don’t need to wear them so i can’t complain about that.July 19, 2012 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #910785Sam2Participant
RebRY: And who made you the determining factor in what’s Tznius or not? Halachah says that a woman’s hair needs to be covered. It might be a long Shietel, but it’s covered.
(As an aside, if the person is wearing stockings then there might be room to say that the knee wouldn’t need to be covered at all times, but that’s getting into very questionable territory.)July 19, 2012 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #910786golferParticipant
RebRY- You wrote “my wife”!
You are a man?
Surprised to find you here, on sheitel thread.July 19, 2012 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #910787
Your mistaken belief is that you can influence a stranger and that you believe you know what’s right without even knowing her.
There are women who wouldn’t even cover their hair if they couldn’t wear the shaitel the way they like. Rabbanim take this into consideration when answering questions related to this.
You’re obviously not involved in Kiruv or you wouldn’t write (or think) like this).December 5, 2012 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #910788BustercrownParticipant
Most honest shAitelmacher ever is Aziza wigs in Boro park, her name is Suri.
