Best Place to Buy a Wig 

Rosalie's New Looks

One would think that the best wigs in town could be found in the Castro, but one would be wrong: All the in-the-know drag queens buy them here -- the collage of photos on Rosalie's wall is proof. In fact, just step in and you'll be thrown back to some melding of the kitschy '50s and the kinky '60s in which Gidget hooks up to party with Barbarella. Every conceivable wig can be found here and the price is right: $50 to $100 for most styles, and a mere $35 to $50 for hair extensions. Rosalie herself, a robust woman with infectious charm, will entertain you endlessly with both personal and hair biz tales from her 43-year history at this shop. In the mood for a new identity? In just a few minutes, she'll help bring out the diva within.
