“Once the client comes to my salon, the first thing I do is discuss my client’s reason(s) for needing a wig and what care or styling requirements might be necessary for their specific needs.
Secondly, we discuss styles, hair color, sizing, and other topics which will help to determine the best wig choice for them. If the wig is to be trimmed and styled, I will work with the client to personalize the wig to enhance their facial structure, taking into consideration their hair color preference and skin tone, etc.
Next, I educate them in the simple steps needed to properly care for their wig.
Finally, I am always available to my clients to answer any questions or concerns they may have about their wig once they leave the salon.”

You are encouraged to bring a spouse, parent, family member or friend to your wig fitting!
Are you new to wigs? If you’re unclear about how to narrow down styles and pick ones that will work best for you, don’t sweat it! The Wig Lady is here to help! Whether for medical reasons or recreational wig use, Fay works closely to make sure the process of choosing a wig comes with understanding and attention to details during the wig fitting process.
At the beginning of the wig fitting process, you may want to stick close to a style you’re familiar with. As we walk you through the wig fitting process, you may find you like or look better in a totally different style or color! That’s why bringing a spouse, family member or friend can be very beneficial, especially if this is your first wig. Certain face shapes are flattered by certain styles. The Wig Lady works with you to help guide you to your best look.
We also keep in mind the cap size while we work with you. Average size wig caps tend to fit about 95% of customers, but it is not always a one size fits all process. You will find that quite a few wigs also come in petite, petite average and large sizes. Please note that not all wigs are available in all cap sizes.
Different cap constructions each have a different method of attaching hair to the cap, and each has its own set of advantages. Click each cap title to learn more.
Most styles have a range of colors to choose from, so picking your final color is usually good to decide towards the end of the wig fitting process. As you zero in on styles you like, you can begin to choose from the colors available for that style. If you are new to wearing wigs, consider staying close to your natural shade to ease the transition.
Great hair deserves great care! Once you have your beautiful wig, you want to do all you can to keep it looking fantastic. The Wig Lady offers one free wig cleaning after our fitting with you, but we also encourage you to clean and maintain your wig just like hair, minus heat applied styling.
