Our postiche team have decades of experience in creating bespoke wigs of the highest quality. Our bespoke wigs are hand made here in the UK, using real hair, and are individually tailored and designed to match your exact requirements.
We begin with a fitting to produce a head shape of the artist, which is used as a template for creating the lace base. We select and blend hair with the colour and texture to suit the desired look, and each strand of hair is hand knotted into the base, taking into account the requirements for hair thickness, direction, parting or crown. After a second fitting and any adjustments, the wig is cut and styled to match the period, status and personality of the character in question. The entire process takes about three weeks.
