This listing is for a Mary Poppins styled Nanny Wig. The front of the wig is done with thick swooped bangs that part in the center and fold gently into the back. There is a 60's inspired bouffant piece that is at the top of the head seen when Mary Poppins takes off her hat and this is inspired by that. It also gives the hair a bit more dimension and height at the front of the head. The rest of the style curls around into a twist meeting the bouffant at the center. As Mary is a bit wispy in her hair style, small strands of hair have been left down and cut short at the sides and around the face for a bit of character. It also implies that even for a working nanny that is practically perfect, she is a working girl and there will be a little bit of our of place or baby hairs as hers is swept up. Color shown is chestnut brown.

DetailsAbout Couture Styled Wigs:
When shopping for a wig you will notice a dramatic difference between a professionally styled wig and a costume or base wig you find on ebay or in a bag at a costume shop. Much in the way that fabric is the material used to make a costume, a wig base is the material used to make a couture styled wig. The hair quality is more realistic and is what is called salon quality wig bases. If you are wig shopping you will find "wig bases" on Ebay. The wig bases are uncut, unstyled hair. They come in various lengths and hair colors. If you find a wig at a costume shop, it is pre-styled as a character however generally speaking the hair quality is very low and often un-natural in it's appearance.
A couture wig stylist will purchase a wig base and cut and style it according to the character. Dramatic styles may require the use of hair extensions added to the base wig for volume, and if more body or curl needs to be added, a heat resistant wig will serve as the base wig. We craft our wigs without the use of hot glue or caked on hair spray to achieve the most natural look and using salon quality wig bases. Each wig is custom cut and styled to order. Much like walking into a hair salon and asking for a cut, color, or updo for a formal event there is a labor cost associated to style and cut your wig and make it look like a character. The amount of labor required will be a combination of 1) the required base wig cost 2) cost of any added hair pieces or extensions and 3) cost of labor to cut and style the wig. Wigs just like costumes take a certain amount of time to complete. Each character wig is priced according to the time and materials it takes to achieve the end look. Each character is different, some require minimal extensions, some require more styling time, some require very little styling time. Prices reflect accordingly.
