Wigs and Hair Pieces FAQs
We will encourage you to try a selection of wigs during your consultation. Thia will be a good experience that will ensure that you find the perfect one for you.
A consultation lasts for one hour.
If the wig is in stock and doesn’t need any alterations then yes you can purchase it at the time of your consultation, otherwise you will need to make a second appointment for it to be fitted etc.
All of this will be explained in detail at the time of your fitting. You will also be given written advice on how to care for your purchase.
We do have many wigs in stock that vary in length, style and colour. However, it will sometimes be necessary to order them.
The ability to style a wig depends on the type you buy. For example, synthetic wigs are made in a particular style that lasts throughout the lifetime of the wig. They can be trimmed or thinned to suit individuals’ requirements but can’t be coloured. Heated tools such as hairdryers or curling tongs will damage the fibres and therefore should not be used.
Human hair wigs can be coloured by a professional and heated tools may be used to change the style if required.
Generally, synthetic hair wigs and pieces last for 4 to 6 months – it depends on how well they are cared for and how often they are worn. It is important to follow our care advice to ensure that your wig looks it’s best for as long as possible.
Human hair wigs last longer, on average around 9 monthe but again, this depends on the care and wear which will be explained to you at your appointment.
We strongly recommend that you use specially formulated products for your synthetic hair.
We do not recommend sleeping in your wig as we tend to move around in our sleep and this will result in the hairs becoming tangled and matted. It will, as a consequence, not look it’s best and not last as long. This applies to any wig, synthetic or human hair.
Prices for wigs and hair pieces vary greatly depending on style, length, type and construction and will be fully discussed at your consultation.
