Noriko wigs come in some incredibly realistic looking colors with gorgeous highlights…that, I knew. What I didn’t realize until recently was that you can get almost any piece (wigs, toppers, whatever) in the Noriko wigs line in just about any color they offer, regardless if it is available to the public.
How, you ask?
Just place a custom order! Who doesn’t love custom?
Can You Really Get a Noriko Wig or Topper in Any Color?
Yep, you typically can – but it will cost you a bit more. You can get Milan in her standard colors in a variety of places, but since mine is custom, I got mine from Gallery of Wigs. Custom Milans do cost a bit more when you order a special color (understandably so!). Plus, you have to order at least three of them (or is it multiples of three? I think just at least three…).
If you do the math – I was out $510 plus a bit of time. Custom orders take at least 10 weeks to complete (mine took 11).
It was worth it! Why oh why aren’t more Noriko wigs and toppers made in this GORGEOUS color??
(A note: with daily wear, I can expect this piece to last me six months.)
Don’t we all just love selfies? I’m trying not to do SO many of them (I’m talking the cell-phone kind) but sometimes you need one.
Important to note: the photo of me in the car is RIGHT out of the box. I hadn’t even washed it. I just deshined it a bit, clipped it on, and boom. New topper.
Let’s take a quick look at what this Noriko wig color looks like up-close.
I just LOVE the hint of copper throughout the piece, as well as the ash blond highlights on the top. As I’ve previously discussed, I can wear a hint of red (I normally shy away from it as it washes me out) if it’s balanced by ash tones. Noriko Wigs GETS THAT in this piece.
Why I love Noriko Milan SO Much (and Noriko Wigs in General)
The size of this Noriko hairpiece is perfect for me right now. Given that my hair loss is diffuse, the large base size covers all of it nicely. I usually recommend those starting out wearing hair get something smaller; the Milan clocks in at 8.5″ wide. It’s often called a “wiglet” or a “3/4 wig” because of it.
I talk about this more in this video I made about this piece…I made this video a few years after this post was published, however:
Noriko wigs and toppers definitely have my vote when it comes to colors, as well. I’ve tried 4 or 5 different colors, and while they don’t all work for me, they are all beautiful.
The fact that I can get this piece in Almond-Rocka R (R stands for “rooted” – you can see these in the next photo. Even though it comes with roots, I usually add even more roots to my synthetic pieces) really seals the deal for me. I mentioned in my 2015 post that I’ll be experimenting with human hair this year; I feel confident moving on to that knowing that I’ve found The One in the synthetic world.
Seriously, The One.
Even if I am making this face:
Let me know what you think of this color. I always love hearing from you guys.
