Unlike an off-the-shelf wig, each prosthesis is custom made to fit. Precise head measurements are taken and real human hair is selected from a large array of colors and textures. Three variations of the hair color are blended for a more natural appearance. The hair is hand-tied onto a base material that resembles a natural scalp.
We have several choices of base material to fit your lifestyle.
