Help: Wig Company Comparisons? 
5th-Jul-2012 10:16 pm


As some of you might know, we started a bulk order shopping service called Gabal Spice. Many of you participated in our survey and we started our service April of this year with 2 successful bulk order shipments from gabalnara.

Gabalnara has been great to deal with. The CEO answers our calls promptly and their staff is extremely nice and helpful. If there is a mistake, they are quick to fix it with little complaint.

Gabal Spice Shopping Service is currently seriously considering delving into more wig companies such as Pinkage and Gabalmania (as suggested by a very thoughtful lolita customer).

Below are the companies we have personally called that we feel carry wigs that could work for lolita, however we'd like your opinion on some things! :)


Gabalmania   -  http://www.gabalmania.com/

PROS
  • Wigs come in one size fits all with adjustable straps. 
  • Their prices a very similar to Gabalnara prices and they offer a similar deal for bulk order.
  • More color options per wig style

CONS
  • We are not 100% sure of the wig quality and if it's worth the money. Gabalnara has South Koreas best wig quality, so there was no doubting the cost involved.
  • It's not worth customers paying as much as they do for a gabalnara wig if the wigs are not guaranteed top quality.
  • Less people know of gabalmania, so we may not get enough customers?
QUESTION

Does anyone have a review of gabalmania's wigs? It would help to have a little feedback to see if it's worth purchase.

Pinkage - http://www.pinkage.co.kr/

PROS
  • Larger Selection
  • More people know of pinkage
  • Carry natural gradation skin wigs (Wigs with natural roots and a skin colored top between netting and wig hair for a natural look)

CONS
  • Their deal for bulk order is not good at all. We'd have to buy $4000+ worth of wigs at a time to get a bulk order deal.
  • Their price for their high quality wigs run as high as $80 a pop without adding international charge or shipping.
  • NOTE: However, if we have a LARGE amount of people wanting this brand, it could go well...
  • There's already an ebay seller with rights to Pinkage rights, so we'd be competing with their pricing (which is quite high) :(
  • They don't really negotiate returns/exchanges even if it's an error :/
QUESTION

Does anyone have a review of pinkage wigs? It would help to have a little feedback to see if it's worth purchase.

Here is a tiny review for yew :)

I have this wig by pinkage http://en.pinkage.co.kr/Front/Product/?url=Product&product_no=SFSELFAA0002059&main_cate_no=ABAC0000&display_group=1
Its sorta like your other wigs.

It was one of the less costly wigs on their website, so I got it in mixed-lex dark brown. I think it ended up costing 75 cdn ish shipped.

It really is a beautiful realistic wig, and thick with minimal shedding. The processed it fast, same day next week I got my box. I never talked to anyone, so I cannot comment on their customer service. It came with a wig cap, wig stand, alligator clips, calender, two catalogs, and bobby pins.

The only con to it, is that they shoved a stupid plastic tag thing though the wig cap, and it got tangled in route to me. So a tiny portion of the side bang got frizzy. Its not noticeable or anything, but it makes it harder to detangle.
