6. How long does it take to ship an order?
We strive to ship out your order as quickly as possible. If you place your order by 3pm (CST), most orders will process and ship the same day. In some cases, it may take 1 to 3 business days or longer to process your order before being shipped. Some reasons that cause delays in order shipping are: inaccurate or incomplete shipping or billing information, your shipping address is a P.O. Box, additional documentation is required to verify your order, or we are currently out of stock on your item. If we are out of stock for an item ordered, we will notify you as soon as possible, either by phone or e-mail. We can only ship to P.O. boxes if you provide a physical street address. Orders received after 3pm Friday through Sunday will be processed on the following Monday.
*Delivery times are calculated in business days. Weekends are not counted in shipping times.
** USPS and UPS Surepost shipping times are not guaranteed. They are only an estimated time of arrival. For a guaranteed delivery time, you must choose UPS Ground service or higher.
7. What are the shipping times for expedited shipping?
Expedited shipping options: (Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, and 3 Day Select) Every effort will be made to process your order so that it can be shipped with our next scheduled package pick up.
Example: If you place an order before 3pm CST Monday and choose UPS Next Day Air, your order will be shipped same day and you can expect your package on Tuesday (2nd Day Air would arrive Wednesday, 3 Day Select would arrive Thursday). If you place your order after 3pm CST Monday and choose UPS Next Day Air, your order will ship on Tuesday and you can expect your package on Wednesday (2nd Day Air would arrive Thursday, 3 Day Select would arrive Friday).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
You, as the importer of the items, are responsible for all brokerage fees, duties and taxes associated with your international order. These fees are not charged at the time of purchase and will be collected once your package arrives to you. We have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so it's best to contact your local customs office for further information.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FEES, TAXES AND DUTIES IMPOSED ON YOUR PACKAGE. NO EXCEPTIONS. If for some reason, your package is released to you without paying the customs charges and Divatress is billed by your government or the shipment carrier for these charges, we will charge your credit card for the amount due.
10. How can I track my order?
Once we ship your order you will receive a shipping confirmation email from us which will include a link to retrieve your tracking number. In addition, you can always log into your Divatress account, find your order and track it from there. The tracking number will link to the carrier’s website where you can track your shipment. We recommend customers to sign up for UPS 'My Choice' at UPS.com. This can give you unparalleled insight of the status of your shipment, as well as many other options including control over when and where your package may be delivered.
11. What is your return & exchange policy?
Within 30 days of your initial order date, you may return or exchange all or part of your order for a refund minus the shipping cost. We will review the condition of all products being returned/exchanged. Based on our review of the condition of the returned/exchanged item(s), there may be a restocking fee of 10% – 50% of the purchased price. Please fill out the RMA form found in your Divatress account dashboard. Customers are required to shipped returned/exchanged merchandise to us within two weeks from the date of RMA approval. After that, the RMA is voided.
Customers are solely responsible for return shipping costs to and from Divatress – we will accept any method of shipment (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.), but to ensure we receive your package, a tracking number is required. If you choose to ship your return/exchange by USPS, choose 'USPS Tracking' in order to obtain a tracking number. Upon receiving your return, a refund or exchange will be processed within 3 to 5 business days. Please keep in mind, if you have been issued a refund, it may take additional time to post to your account depending on your issuing bank. Refunds will be issued to the same credit card that the original purchase was made with. Shipping and handling fees are not refundable.
We do not accept returned merchandise that has been used. Due to the personal nature of the hair products we must adhere to strict policies with respect to the return of hair merchandise. All items sent to us for return or exchange must be in 'like new' condition. This means that the product must be in its sealed and unaltered packaging and include all tags or labels.
Defective merchandise may only be replaced with the exact same item. Discounts or coupon codes may not be used on exchanges.
Please inspect your wig(s) or weave(s) before wearing or altering it. Once the wig or weave has been worn, brushed, or cut, including the hair, weft or lace, the item will not be accepted for return or exchange.
