Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
One thing I couldn't say was the "worst" about her, she was very kind and honest and up to date with the progress of my wig. I had supplied her with plenty of reference photos and she gave me a price quote of $50. I had never had anyone in the US create my wig, but seeing as she was very good with her prices I decided to give it a shot. Sadly, when she did email me photos I felt they looked nothing like Belle. She defended her actions and said her mother liked it. But for myself, it was not up to par. And I asked for a refund, she was fine with that but I'd have to wait.
Then we came up with a solution that she could use the money I gave her to make a Sailor Moon wig. Since the one I bought from eBay was falling apart. Sadly, she made excuses about her time and was unable to do so. I then asked for a refund since I felt that I could not trust her. I also felt that though she works as a Dishwasher, her time and money management was impossible to make ends meet.
Honestly, she did refund back. Even though, it was $60 I gave her, she refunded me at least $50, which I guess is only fair.
Final Grade: C- For a wig that was never up to snuff or could not find ways to make a wig happen. I hope she can learn next time in the future to better time and money manage, as it is a business and it should be respected and honored as one. At least she always kept me informed and refunded me promptly and everything.
