    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)?

    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.

    Ive asked around and many tell me they’ve heard a lot about Raizy Klein.

    QUESTION:

    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!

    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?

    #910763

    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.

    dini in monsey is amazing. I have a friend whos coming in from Brooklyn to get one (buy and cut) by her. shes amazing.

    adorable – Shifra is great! Her cut… her patience… everything about her, especially for a kallah – she really gives her time.

    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.

    How do Tony and all her relatives (herself, sister and niece) compare? How do they rate as far as popularity?

    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. 718-998-6043

    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!

    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).

    How do we know that those touting certain shaitelmachers here (like Claire’s) aren’t The shAitelmacher the self trying to get herself customers?.?

    Good question.

    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.

    If you are going to cut your sheitel you should cut it short like the chassidish shaitelech instead of the long litvish shaitelech.

    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.

    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.

    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.)

    RebRY- You wrote “my wife”!

    You are a man?

    Surprised to find you here, on sheitel thread.

    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).

    Most honest shAitelmacher ever is Aziza wigs in Boro park, her name is Suri.
