If you’ve ever looked into buying a wig, you’ll know all too well that it can be a pricey purchase. In fact, a wig can be one of the biggest beauty investments you ever make, with the finest quality, ethically-sourced, custom-made human hair wigs costing thousands and thousands of pounds.
A wig is not just an investment in terms of money, though – a great wig can totally transform your look, as well as your confidence and mindset. It’s for these reasons that there’s a big focus on wig-care, with experts advising that you only wash them in cold water, de-tangling with a wide-tooth comb, and storing them on a mannequin to help keep the shape.
However, everyday wear and tear, as well as heat tools like curling tongs and straighteners eventually take a toll on even the best-kept wigs, leaving many shelling out for a new one. Until now, that is…
Enter The Wig Bar London – a new wig ‘laundry’ service that cares for and revamps wigs to ensure they look as good as new but at a fraction of the cost of buying a replacement. The revolutionary service is the brainchild of entrepreneur Yomi Onashile, who wanted to destigmatise wig wearing while also providing everyone access to amazing hair at an accessible price.
Services start from as little as £70 and include everything from a simple wash and style, to a colour change, to a lace replacement, to a full deconstruction and reconstruction using the same hair. Just pop your wig in the post, and it’ll be returned good as new (or better) within days.
