    We work closely with each of our clients to find the right hairpiece that looks and feels natural, as well as fits their lifestyle and budget. There are many options for clients, including human and manmade hair, length and style, the quality of the hair and the base itself. Many of our wigs are custom-ordered to the client's unique measurements, then cut, colored and styled to make them look exactly as they want.
