We had an opportunity to interview the owner of Sharaka Designs and asked a few questions.

Are the wigs custom made?
YES, Shakara Designs specializes in creating and customizing hand made wigs including u-part, full, and closure wigs. We also make clip-in extensions using hair wefts. We offer superior quality and craftsmanship, all at affordable prices.

How does the process of ordering a wig work?
You send us the hair wefts and we make the wig or clip-ins or we can provide the hair (Payment in full is required for hair bundles and closures if you request for Shakara Designs to supply the hair). A 50% deposit is required to secure your request for a custom unit or clip in extensions. The balance is due upon completion.

Shortly after your order is placed, you will receive a consultation form by  email to make sure we have all the information needed to complete your wig or clip-in extensions. Before you receive the wig or clip-in extensions, a picture will be emailed to you in case any minor changes need to be made.

How long do the clients expect to keep the wig for?
Shakara Designs wig units can last 1+ years. The longevity of your investment will depend on your upkeep. As with your own hair, if you do not care for it by keeping it moisturized, conditioned, etc.  It will not remain healthy. Constant heat styling, bleaching, coloring and improper care will shorten the life span of your unit.

What are the benefits of purchasing a wig?

It’s a quick weave that requires very little maintenance. If your goal is to protect your natural hair and achieve a flawless weave, this is for you If you’re investing in virgin hair and you want it to last a year or longer, having a unit or clip-in is the best way. You can switch up your look from straight to wavy, longer to shorter in a matter of minutes

Do you think this is a new trend? And why should one consider this?
I believe this is a new trend and we are seeing it more and more. Women want something affordable and something that is custom fit to their head that doesn’t look “wiggy”. Custom wigs give women the option of being able to switch up their hairstyle anytime they want without making any drastic changes to their own natural hair. It’s a great option for women who are on the go and want something they can put on quickly and they are out the door. Going to salons all the time can get very expensive so you end up saving  a lot of money and protecting your investment from purchasing virgin hair as you are able to take off your unit and care for the hair more easily.

Do you do consultations for clients?
Yes, consultations are done by email (if you are outside Ottawa). For clients in Ottawa, in person consultations are strongly recommended. If this is not possible, an email/phone consultation is another option that is available.

As you can see, the wigs can be styled in any way you like, curly, straight, wavy! Winter is fast approaching and I think this is a great idea for protective styling or if you just want to change your look.
