Bespoke wig makers
Amiwigs Ltd., Bespoke Wig Makers was founded by Director Amy Holt in December 2011. With Amy’s background in Television and Film, she has unrivalled knowledge in the field of wig making and hair loss solutions. Amy trained at The London College of Fashion where she obtained a degree in Special Fx Makeup Design.
After three years of studying, she joined other wig makers as the in-house wigmaker and facial hair coordinator for the BBC Wigstore, where she was trained to a high standard in bespoke wigmaking, facial hair making and hair pieces. Having worked for the BBC for a year, she branched out into the world of the freelance film and television industry.
Amy has since worked for television dramas such as Midsomer Murders, Mr Selfridge and Game of Thrones, and feature films such as Warhorse and Thor 2, as well as being a key wig maker on Harry Potter. Her experience also extends out into the world of opera and theatre where she worked as both a wig assistant and a wig maker at Glyndebourne and The National Theatre.
All our bespoke human hair wigs and hairpieces are custom made and cut on the client’s head at the final fitting. All are made using the highest quality European human hair, which ensures the most natural colour and texture match and movement. Unless of course you are not of European decent, in which case we will order in hair to match that of your origin, so not only the colour and texture is identical.
On the initial consultation, which is free of charge, we will gain an understanding of what hair loss our customer is suffering from. We take time to explain how we make the bespoke human hair wigs and hairpieces and show the materials used and what options we have to offer. Then a head shape and measurements are taken to ensure an exact fit. We also take a number of hair samples to ensure an exact colour match, unless the wig or hairpiece is intended to be a chosen colour, from which you can choose from our colour wheel.
Dependent on our customer’s availability and requirements a number of fittings may be required. All bespoke human hair wigs and hairpieces are made within 4-6 weeks of ordering. All our wigs and hairpieces are handmade in the UK. Amiwigs also offers an advice service so please get in touch if there is anything you feel we may be able to advise you upon.
