Donating Your Hair Ponytails To Make A Wig For A Friend Or Family Member
Hair Couture Designs wig makers have been making wigs for clients using donated hair for over 40 years.
We are honored to be a part of the unconditional loving relationships between friends and family when hair is donated to a friend or family member so they may feel especially loved and cared for.
Throughout the years we have watched families and friends become overjoyed when their custom made wig arrives, and after cutting and styling the smile on their faces is priceless. We have found through the years that wearing a wig made with a friend or family members own hair leaves the wig recipient feeling at peace and a reminder of the love that others feel for them.
Please Let Us Do The Work! Our wig makers have been doing this for customers for several years. Here are the steps we take to relieve you of any stress:
1. Email us photos of your loved one to email@example.com: We would like to receive 2-4 photos of your friend or family member that we are making the wig for. Our wig makers can look at the photos to decide on type of cap, cap material colors, hair length and colors that are needed to create the look that your loved one desires. Please remember to add your contact information and the wig recipients information with the photos sent so we may be able to create a file for identification purposes.
2. Cap Measurements: We will email directions on how to measure for a wig. We can email you a link to YouTube, email you detailed directions or schedule a SKYPE consultation.
3. Interview you or your loved one to find out lifestyle and concerns. We need to understand our client’s lifestyle and concerns so we may provide the right cap.
4. Do you have enough hair and is the hair long enough to make a wig? Lets make this easy. Just take a photo of the ponytails next to a ruler or measuring tape and email to us with the photos of the wig recipient to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a scale please weigh the ponytails and include the weight and the measurements in the email. We will then let you know after receipt if we think the hair will work (based on the photos of the wig recipient)
We do use 3” of the length of hair to make a custom wig. We also can let you know (based on the photos you email to us) how much hair and the length we are going to need to create the recipients wig. We usually ask for 1(must be very thick) to 3 ponytails to make the wig. Don’t worry about color, we can add the hair and have it colored once the wig is completed (we want you to know that it’s the hair that was donated)
5. We must have the hair shipped to us: Please ship the hair with payment (if your paying by check) to
Hair Couture Designs
Attention: WM Dept
2963 E Thousand Oaks Blvd #201
Thousand Oaks, CA 91362
6. Once we receive the hair we will confirm that there is enough to make the wig. We will immediate contact you if more hair is needed to properly complete the wig. We have some beautiful raw unprocessed American and Russian human hair ponytails in stock that we can either ship to you or email photos prior to purchase. We will make sure the hair matches your own supplied natural color, curl, texture, length ect that you need to complete your custom wig.
7. Concerned About The Type Of Cap? The Comfort? The Way The Cap Fits? Worried about the cap being itchy or unnatural looking?: Again please do not worry, we are very accurate with our measurements. We will offer ship you a few caps that your loved one can try on prior to us adding the hair. If additional hair is needed, we can add a few ponytails for you to touch feel and see. (Based on years of working with our customers we feel it is very important that you know “what hair is being used” in the making of your wig and “what type of cap” you will be wearing) We do not want you to have “any surprises” that may cause emotional stress. Your piece of mind is of our prime importance. If you or your loved one is in a rush to have the wig completed we will first confirm all the details and get the processes started as soon as possible!
8. What if you need the wig within a 6 – 7 week period?: If we have an availability at the time you place your order to have your wig serviced “rushed” in a more timely manner, we can arrange our wig maker to work overtime for an additional fee. We do have to check schedules to see if the option is available at the time of purchase. We cannot promise a wig to be rushed if we already have several other “rush orders” ahead of you. It all depends on timing. We will let you know immediately the schedule so you can plan the time frame. It does usually take around 8-10 weeks for a wig to be made. We will provide you or your loved one a synthetic wig that we have in stock “at no charge” if needed.
