What a gorgeous 21” long Processed European Whopper (partial hairpiece/large topper) from Yaffa Wigs!
This beauty is a stock piece and available in most colors 16/8 and darker, although lighter colors are expected in 2015, so do check back if that is what you are looking for.
Remember that the Processed European hair is beautiful but should essentially be purchased in the end result color that you need to wear in that you can lowlight it; however, it will not take additional highlights as it has been processed in such a way that the color will not lift any further.
That said, this piece has an extremely realistic looking mono top (as do all Yaffa pieces) which measures 4.5" across and 4" front to back with the whole base measuring 7.5" front to back and 7" side to side. The color shown in the main photos is a 14/8 which while it does run warm, the photos make it look even more red than it is as a warm light brown base with golden medium blonde highlights, as shown.
The largest stock Whopper pieces are 10” x 10”; however, you can custom order a piece larger than that, or have the ear tabs and the nape and a bit of the back removed from a full wig (Yaffa charges $250 to do as such). We also stock three-quarter fall pieces if your preference is to wear your own hair out in the front.
There is certainly a lot of different kinds of hair quality out there and only a few different main categories into which it can be labeled. The easiest way to think about the quality that Yaffa uses is that it is the highest available at each price point. This is to say that many other manufacturers would have a $1,000 price tag on pieces with hair quality that is far inferior to this.
Additionally, one should realize that while Virgin European (Russian) hair is known as the crème de la crème of the raw materials that can be used for a hairpiece, it does not always mean that it’s the best thing for what you need. This is particularly true in a partial hairpiece where you need it to match up with the color and texture of your own hair. That means that while the Russian hair may be gorgeous, if you have darker natural hair that is coarser in texture, the thin strands of Russian hair isn’t going to ever really blend properly with your own hair.
While Processed European hair does have its limitations in the highlighting department, and it does not start with the super fine Virgin Russian hair to begin with, it is significantly equal or superior to what other wig companies call European Hair.
