How to Use

  • Remove the hair net from the wig.
  • Gently shake the wig to separate the fibers.
  • If your hair is long, pin it flat to your head for a smooth silhouette under the wig.
  • Place the front of the wig at your natural front hairline and pull on so that the back of the wig is placed at the nape.
  • Adjust the wig as needed by sliding it from front to back or side to side. Use a rat tail comb to slip any loose ends under the wig. Use your favorite styling tool or fingers to create the look that's just your style.

Care Instructions

  • To wash, add 1 tablespoon mild shampoo to basin of cold water and soak for 5 minutes. Do not rub. Rinse until all shampoo is removed and dab gently with towel. Do not squeeze or twist. Hang to dry or use a blow dryer on a low setting.
  • Do not brush or comb while wet.
  • Excelle can withstand heat up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.


Gabor Wig Troubleshooting Guide
  • If the wig is too big or too small: Adjust the stick and loop adjusters until the wig feels secure. You can also take the wig to a wig shop to have it professionally resized.
  • If the wig looks fake: Make sure you have lined up the ear tabs with your ears and that the front is pulled back to your natural hairline. Pull out some of your own hair and blend for an even more natural look.
  • If the wig has too much hair or is hard to style: Take the wig to your hair stylist. They can thin out the bulk and shape the style to your specifications.
  • If the hair on the wig looks thin: Be sure to shake the wig right out of its package, then comb through. It may be that the fibers just need to be redistributed.
  • If the hair on the wig is sticking up: Soak the wig in cool water for 5-10 minutes, then spray it with a leave-in conditioner to smooth down the fibers. You also have the option of using a holding hairspray.
  • If the hair on the wig looks shiny: Soak the wig in cool water for 5-10 minutes. If the wig still looks shiny when it dries, brush it with a little dry shampoo.

    I havent warn yet. An impulse purchase for sure. Looks so real. With my hand disability I have trouble getting it on properly. Hopefully I will use it.

    Looks Good

    They did a good job on the dark brown color of this wig. I bought it to see what it would look like on me. It looks nice on me and I could pull it back into a small pony tail at nape of my neck & it looked like an expensive updo! It did come with a hair net & a wig cap too! It does have adjustment tabs on inside & is breathable on.I hope this helps someone with dark brown hair decide to try it. This would make a good wig for someone going through chemo therapy.

    Lovely Wig

    This wig is very well made and loved it on the model but not so much on me. Ended up returning. Will definitely try another style. I usually wear bangs and didn't like the look on me without bangs, not a fan of my forehead.

    Great looking, very youthful

    I was lucky enough to be the last person to get this wig in the rooted light blonde. Curls are amazing , price is good, fits great, not hot, I like it behind my ears with hoop earrings ( also fake as I dont have pierced ears) So easy to put on when having a bad hair day!

    This is the look I have always wanted, as my own hair is straight and thin. It took a few trials to get it fitted correctly on my head, so that it looked more natural. The curls are a touch massive, but I can pin some back or have my hair dresser modify it a bit. Have had compliments when I have worn it. Great!!
