“Plumb,” a great new brand to check for fashionable girls
"Plumb" debuted last year, in 2012, and in no time at all, it had become a super popular wig brand （http://plumb-world.com）. The designer is Misha Janette, an American fashion journalist living in Japan. As someone who communicates Tokyo fashion within Japan and to the world, the wigs that she makes are original and refined! We asked Misha about the details of her brand and the state of Tokyo wigs.
"As beauty and fashion items, I think wigs have come the furthest in Japan. Wigs with bangs are in Japan, but not in America.
When I am designing, I get inspiration from Harajuku and Shibuya... I guess Tokyo street fashion. I am in charge of a fashion-related TV show, so I also refer to the opinions of fashion leaders I meet through that."
"Plumb" wigs are popular with a wide range of people, from teenagers to a more mature audience. Abroad, it's said that the brand gets support from people who enjoy Japanese fashion.
"Plumb," which may soon become a breakout hit worldwide, can currently only be found in Japan! If you visit Tokyo, by all means, drop by the shop!
The photos in the top row are models known as "tattoo lines," which have things like hair bands or bar codes printed on them. On the bottom is the main line of wigs. Most popular are the vivid color wigs, which are difficult to achieve with natural hair, and wigs with sharp cut lines. While the designs are so refined, the prices are reasonable, starting at 13,800 yen!
Perfect for gal fashion! The well-established "NAVANA WIG"
"NAVANA WIG" has been featured in multiple fashion magazines and has devoted fans among television personalities and models. It's very popular, especially among the gal community, and there are seven shops just within the Tokyo area. According to the shop, the wigs became popular around three to four years ago.
"The first to become popular was the bangs wig. From there, the idea that wigs became a part of everyday beauty and fashion took root. Since one can freely enjoy styles they can't pull off with their own hair, there are lots of repeat customers."
By the way, next season, it seems that bright colors will be in style! How about using a wig for your spring and summer hairstyle?

For gothic and lolita fashion, too! “PRISILA,” purveyor to Harajuku girls
"PRISILA" runs a streetside shop in Shibuya and has all kinds of fans, with fashions including Harajuku-kei, lolita, and even cosplay. The store has items not only for girls, but also for men and mature ladies. The shop has a rich variety of wigs.
When you visit the shop, the quality of the wigs is that their style and colors are always kept in a beautiful state. One charming element is that your natural hair won't become harmed through repeated perms and coloring.
Also, the shop informed us, "There are many customers who can't change their natural hair because of work or school, but they want to enjoy their hairstyles freely in their private time. If such people have a wig, the breadth of fashion they can enjoy expands."
If you are going for Harajuku-kei fashion, first get a wig here!
