Hair Angel From Above…..

Today was a very busy day in the Essex Wig Centre, back to back clients all day. Consultations, cut, set and redress services, wig sales and personalising cuts for numerous clients. I’ve met some lovely new clients and spent time with some of our wonderful regulars.

One of our regular customers to the salon, has been having her hair done with Pierre for over thirty years, has just recently found herself in need of a wig and has had a bespoke, custom made wig made for her by us. It has been sitting in our stock room since Christmas and tried on weekly while she’s been building her confidence to wear it. When I began working here, my first project given to me by Pierre, was to take the wig and do what I could and what was needed to get our lovely lady to a happy state where she is ready to wear the wig and take it home. I have spent a lot of time on it, getting it to a suitable density, getting the styling right and working on the shape to create a look that is comfortable to wear and realistic looking for the client. I am happy to say that today was the day she was ready to take it home! It is important to me to work with each individual and take care of individual needs in order to get the service just right. I will constantly strive to make sure each client goes away completely happy and want each one of you to feel fantastic in your wig. I am very happy that today was one of those days and after months of nerves, I have given someone the confidence to wear her wig with pride. We also talked through some further options that might work should she still not feel 100% confident with her wig going forward. We looked at the integration systems which would work very well for this individual and formed a back up plan for the future. She was so happy with the outcome today and all of the information she had to take away that she described me as her “Hair angel from above!” One of the nicest things anyone has ever said about my work and I felt so proud I just needed to share 🙂

Hoping to start up a proper reviews page soon to get some more detailed feedback from the clients I see, and hopefully there will be more lovely comments like I’ve had today. Thank you Mrs E.

Hope to be making more people happy with their hair next week!

Cheaper Options…..

Along side our usual collection of wigs, we have been looking into ideas for cheaper options which we hope to use within our charity work and to benefit those on a really tight budget. It is obvious that cheaper wigs are going to suffer in quality in some ways but I have been spending time today trying to improve what we have here to make them wearable!

The hair quality is often very shiny and plastic looking and the weft lines are often very visible. To counteract this I have cut and styled a few of our cheap options and used some of the bamboo products sold in the main salon to improve the look of the wigs. I’m very happy with the results and have posted some pictures here for you to see what I’ve done!

I wanted to show what I can do and what’s possible with cheaper wigs in the hope of giving those on a budget a bit of confidence that you can still look your best and your wig doesn’t have to stay looking ‘wiggy’. If you have been given an NHS wig that is not top quality, you want something for a one off event, or are on a tight budget, with a bit of imagination, you can leave here looking great and feeling very happy.

I have a very large bag of wigs of this quality to get through and style to bring them up to a reputable standard, but I am confident that I can make each one ready to wear! I look forward to posting more photos for you to see how I’m getting on with them. Here at Essex Wig Centre we aim to provide services for all budgets and needs and am very happy to be able to show you successful work in the lower end of the budget spectrum.

More to follow in the next few days!

Fun in the wig room…..

Hi all,

We have had a fun day in the wig room today. The team and I have worked together to shoot some of our stock pieces for they allergy which is soon to go live on our fabulous new website which will be up and running very soon.

Lisa, stylist in the main salon, was our model for the day and Tash, stylist, wig assistant and makeup artist, did the makeup for the shoot while I styled the wigs and took the photos. We took shots of 20 of our stock wigs and styled a few of them in different ways hoping to show a good range of what we have here, the excellent quality of the wigs and the versatility possible in styling your wig.

Bare in mind that these wigs show just some of what we can do. Each style is available in a wide variety of colours, hair qualities and with different bases. We can take each element of different wigs that you try to create a completely bespoke order too so you really can get the exact wig that you want. Obviously you can choose one that we have here too if we have something that you like! But the possibilities are endless in the one off design that we can create for you during our consultation process.

I have added a few snaps of some of our work from today, have a good look at the quality of the lace fronts that we have in stock and how realistic the fronts of the wigs can look. The long blonde is human hair, also showing the different hair types that we stock and showing you the difference in quality.

We have had a great day and it’s been lovely to see the wigs on and see how good they actually look! Hope you you like them as much as us!
