Wig Party FAQs
How do I book a party?
What time is the party?
Private parties are scheduled before the shop opens, or after closing.
What's the deal with masks?
With the rise of new Delta variant cases, and breakthrough cases in vaccinated populations, we are once again requiring our guests to remain masked in our common areas. We have a front porch and front room party parlour (pictured above), which are designated "mask optional" areas, where guests are welcome to use their masks at their discretion when enjoying refreshments or taking selfies. Beyond our hygiene barrier, which separates the front party parlour from the rest of the shop, we ask that masks to be worn 100% of the time. We recommend wearing the mask that loops behind your ears to allow for easy wig try ons!
What other safety precautions are in place?
Parties are private, so the only people present will be your guests and 2-4 staff members. We have UVC / HEPA air purifiers in every room. We sterilize wigs with a UVC wand and all surfaces are disinfected between parties.
What should we bring?
We have a vintage buffet and bar cabinet for you to set up light refreshments and drinks, but everything else in that department is up to you! Cocktails / Champagne / Cups / Cupcakes / Plates / Napkins…? Whatever it is that you want to serve at your party!
*If you are planning on serving alcoholic beverages at your party, everyone in your group must be 21 years of age. And please consider having a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or party bus pick you up to shuttle you to your next destination!
What NOT to bring:
Your inhibitions, self-editing and….BOAS. Please, no feather boas! They shed like crazy, the dye rubs off on our couch and it tacks on another 30 minutes to our clean up at the end of the night! Every other accessory under the sun is welcome, but leave those turkey feathers at home.
Do we get our makeup done there?
During our mask-mandatory parties, our makeup artist will only be applying eye makeup. If you would like to purchase false eyelashes while you’re here, we will also apply them for you and give you a little tutorial on how to apply them yourself in the future! Please do not bring lashes from home. For fully vaccinated mask-less parties, we will also apply lipstick!
Which wigs are included in our party?
We have an extensive selection of styles in both fantasy and natural colors. There are about 20 different styles included in the party offerings, but If someone falls in love with a wig that is not included, everyone has a $30 credit towards the purchase of an upgraded style, which they can pay for individually at the end of the party.
Can I see the wigs that are offered in the party beforehand?
We have a rotating selection of different styles and many colors in those styles that are offered during Wig Parties! We don't have a list of them all, as the selection rotates depending on availability.
How many wigs can we try on?
We encourage everyone to keep the number of wigs they try on to 2 or under. It's our experience that the more you try, the harder your decision becomes!
Can we take pictures?
Absolutely! We have fun sparkly photo backdrops as well as a ring light that we set up for you. We also offer The Insta add-on, if you'd like some physical prints to take with you.
What should we wear?
The wigs often inspire people to want to step away from their typical everyday wardrobe. Depending on whether you’re going for a “natural” look or something more colorful all depends on you! Our Austin location has a small selection of vintage dresses and jumpsuits available for purchase, in case you have a mid-party altered-ego wardrobe crisis ;)
Is it customary to tip?
Yes! Gratuity is not included in the price of your party and is up to your discretion… Tips will happily be divided evenly among the staff that serves you. If you would like to tip on your credit card, please let us know at checkout, as we do not have a "tip line" on our receipt.
Can we add more people to our party?
Yes! If you are planning on inviting extra people, please give us a final head count 1 week prior to your party. Currently, we are capping our parties at 15 guests. If you have more than 15 guests, we recommend our DIY Party!
We had a few guests cancel; do we get their deposit back?
We ask for a final headcount 1 week prior to your party. If you originally booked for 8 guests, but you give us at least one week's notice that your party has decreased in size, your full deposit will be applied against your final balance and you will not be penalized for your guest's cancellation. Please note, however, we have a 5 guest minimum for parties that occur Sunday-Thursday, and a 6 guest minimum on Fridays and Saturdays. If your party decreases in size below these minimums, you will still be charged the full amount, despite advanced notice.
What if someone in the party doesn’t want a wig- do they still have to pay?
We encourage everyone who attends the party to participate! Even if that means stepping out of their “comfort zone” for a few hours, and putting on a wig. So yes, we charge by the “head.”
What is your cancellation policy?
Your deposit is non-refundable. If you're unable to make your party, we ask for a 2 week notice, and will float your deposit for up to one year so that you can reschedule for a date in the future.
Where do we park?
Our Austin location has 3 parking spaces in the front of our building and three spaces in back. You can also find parking on one of our side streets, Anthony or Caney. Please do not park in our neighbor’s lots!
Our Denver location has plenty of street parking!
