Cancer Wig Fitting & Styling

Our salon services include helping you find the right cancer wig from the foundation up. First, we find the best fitting cap that provides the most comfort for your scalp. Certain models may work for some ladies and not others. Once the proper foundation is determined, we focus on perfecting the style. Our custom wigs come in a variety of hair types.

All of our products are customized to your exact specifications. We are able to cut, color, and highlight to match your look. Our salon experts are able to match your texture whether it is straight, wavy or extremely curly. If the cap is too loose we can do hand alterations to make it fit perfectly and if it’s too tight we can manually open the seams to let it out.

Custom Highlights – Art for Your Head!

For clients looking to maintain their signature look, we are able to exactly copy existing highlights and color onto a wig, including root color. Coloring a wig is much different than stopping at a salon for highlights every six to eight weeks. It’s a very specialized process that takes many hours of color matching and artistry.

Due to the amount of time each wig takes to get done we usually require at least 2 weeks to complete it. If you would like to copy your signature high and low lights please plan ahead and book your appointment as soon as possible.

First, we make sure we find a wig that fits your head and lifestyle best. Next, we take photographs of your hair to map out the placement of the highlights and use samples of your current color so that we can make the wig your exact hair color.

Once we have perfectly matched each color, it’s time to start coloring the wig. Generally, the color process for just one wig takes 8 or more hours of work. A custom color typically takes two to three weeks to complete. Once the color is perfect, we have you come in for a follow-up appointment where we copy your exact cut and style on the wig.

Our goal  is to have the wig ready when you need it. CALL US to get the process started as soon as possible.
