Do I need an appointment?
For a wig fitting, yes. While we do accept walk-ins during regular business hours on a first-come, first-serve basis, you will not be able to try on wigs without the assistance of a fitter. Making an appointment assures that you will be able to be seen upon arrival without a long wait.

Should I Shop For a Wig Before or After I Lose My Hair?
If you are anticipating hair loss, perhaps due to chemotherapy treatment, you may wonder if it’s best to shop for a wig before you lose your hair, or whether you will get a better fitting once your hair is gone. With most chemotherapy treatments, you can expect hair loss 10-14 days after you’re first treatment.
We recommend shopping before you lose your hair for several reasons:
- It gives you more time to shop and make a selection. If you wait until your hair is gone you may feel rushed and make a hasty decision
- It allows your fitter to view your current style and color to make a better match.
- If a wig must be ordered, you have time for it to come in before your hair loss begins.
- Chemotherapy can be draining, and it can be easier to shop before treatment when you’re feeling your best.
But, how will you know if the wig will fit if you still have your hair?
It’s true, the wig will not sit on your head exactly the same way it will once your hair is gone. That’s where having an expert can help. We take measurements so we know the size you will need after you lose your hair. We can help you wrap your hair flat to your scalp to make trying on the wigs easier. You will have to use your imagination a little bit to visualize how the wig will look once it sits more closely to your head- especially if you have very thick and/or long hair. In rare cases, if your hair style is particularly voluminous, it will not be possible to try on wigs while you still have your hair.
If you have already begun losing, or have completely lost your hair, we can still help you find a wig. We recommend you bring in photos of your desired style and color. If you saved a lock of your hair, bring that as well. Let your fitter know your time schedule, when you need the wig, so we can possibly find you something you can take home right away.
