What if an item is out of stock?
We try our best to keep the website updated, but there are instances where an item may be on back order. If we have part of the order, we will ship the partial order and ask the customer if they would like to wait or receive a refund.

Shipping costs are determined by the distance that the wig or wig accessories must travel to you and depending on the carrier. We use both UPS and USPS.
