If you’re looking to maintain your signature look, we are able to exactly copy existing highlights and color onto a wig, including root color. Think of our salon services like a makeover for your wig. Just because you don’t like the current color doesn’t mean we can’t change it. We are the only place in Chicagoland who is willing to take the many hours necessary to copy your exact highlights onto a wig so that it looks exactly like your hair.
