Women—beautiful in their strength, resolve, and faith—are the core of our business. To give thanks for our success, we aim to give back to the women among us who are the most in need.

Over the years, Especially Yours has donated thousands of pieces of apparel to outreach organizations serving at-risk women and their children. Our contributions to organizations such as the Miami Rescue Mission’s Center for Women and Children help cloth women in shelter settings and provide work outfits to indigent women in job-training programs.

We also aim to help cancer survivors regain their self-esteem and to feel beautiful once again. It’s our way of letting them know that our hearts and thoughts are with them, that they are not alone, and that they are truly amazing.

About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer. No doubt, each of us has known a coworker, friend, or family member who has faced such a diagnosis. It is because of this shared experience and connection that we believe it is our responsibility—as a company and as individuals—to raise awareness and to help those in need.

Treatment for breast cancer can be a painful experience, and the hair loss associated with chemotherapy can compound an already stressful, emotional time. Over the past decade, Specialty Commerce Corp has donated more than 68,000 wigs, hairpieces, hats, and turbans to women’s cancer charities and service providers so that women with hair loss due to chemotherapy might reclaim a part of themselves and their everyday, pre-cancer lives.

In addition to our own significant monetary and in-kind contributions to these many worthy organizations, we also donate returned nonrefundable clearance and final sale merchandise on our customers’ behalf. In these cases, each customer receives notification of her donation, as well as a receipt to use for charitable-deduction purposes at tax time. Specialty Commerce Corp does not receive any tax credit, financial gain, or other benefit for such donations.

Quick & Easy Wig Styling Tips

For Curly Wigs:
Give the wig a good shake, then gently style the curls with your fingers or a pick comb – not a brush. We suggest the Styling Brush and Pick Comb to go with your curly wig.

For Wavy Wigs:

Brush lightly using short, lifting strokes – just enough to add volume and create body. We suggest using the 5-Pc. Styling Comb and Brush Set with your favorite wavy wig.

For Straight Wigs:

Brush with long, even strokes for a smooth look. Start at the ends and work your way to the roots. We suggest the Static-Free Brush to pair with your straight wig.

For Short Wigs:

Many wig styles, especially shorter ones, need only a good shake and they’re ready to wear. We suggest the Wig Brush for short wigs.

An Important Note About Fiber & Heat:

Human hair wigs can take the heat, but synthetic wigs can’t, so be careful! Never expose a synthetic style to excessive heat (even standing in front of an open oven, or over a hot stove), as this will damage the fibers. Curling irons, flat irons, hot rollers, hair dryers and other heat styling tools should only be used on 100% human hair styles or a heat-friendly fiber blend like Futura®.
