Typically around $300-$350. I like the quality of the hair but not the cap. The last time I went to buy one, I tried a wig with a nicer cap made for people with no hair and the difference was amazing. I wouldn't want to spend too much more just because I don't wear it enough, although, I probably don't wear them too often because I don't find them comfortable. That is a good idea, having them hand made, how did you find a place that would make them?
