Custom Lace Hairpieces and Wigs by Lavette Slater

Just wanted to introduce my Custom Lace Hairpieces and Wigs! Having fabulous hair is what makes us "fabulous". Over the years I've had many clients that have had different and special hair care needs .There are some that suffer from thinning hair, alopecia, permanent hair loss due to heredity and there are many that just want to have a different hair style and to protect their own hair from day to day heat styling. So, through supply and demand I've developed my own Custom Lace Hairpieces and Wigs. I've noticed that certain types of textured hair calls for certain types of hairpieces. That is why all of my hairpieces are customized and personalized. Hairpieces I think, are as personal as underclothes you must have the right fit. I sit down with all of my clients and develop a style and fit from cap size, density, texture and length. All of my hairpieces and wigs are then cut and styled. My hairpieces have been worn by many models, actors and celebrities but most commonly worn everyday by the funny and fabulous Sherri Shepherd from ABC's The View. I customize all of her wigs I choose the cap size to the type of lace the hair will be tied on. All of Sherri's wigs have different special types of lace which will last for years! After I customize her wig I cut and style every one of them to her face. Each wig is made of 100% high quality human hair and hand tied on fine quality special lace. There are so many variations of lace that make the hairpiece appear as if it's your own hair coming out of your scalp. If you are interested in a custom hairpiece or wig, please email me at: lavetteslaterbookings@gmail.com

Salon Diaries

The Salon Diaries is a series I created to bring some of the most opinionated celbrities and socialites together to discuss topics around beauty, sex, relationships and work in a non-judgmental enviornment. I developed the concept of Salon Diaries because the salon  is  where we have the best and    juiciest conversations. For every cut, highlight, roller set, snip and curl, we make people feel beautiful and confident and  in  a  small  way, we change lives while we enjoy humorous and sometimes poignant tales from customers. This forum allows for real people to discuss real issues in a very candid wa

The first installment of the series was held at the Trump World Bar with guest panelists MTV’s Tionna Smalls ,  VH1’s  Ariane Davis of  Love & Hip Hop ATL,  VH1’s  Olivia and Raqi  Thunda of  Love  &  Hip  Hop  NY and relationship blogger Blogxilla. Guests enjoyed complimentary Smoke Liquer cocktails along with small bites from Ensucience and sweets from Cake Gyal.
