The most comfortable, natural and light weight wigs available. You can decide how you want to wear the hair whether it be a permanent service or something you can take off daily, the choice is yours. With our expertise and knowledge in this area we will guide you completely helping you make the decision that makes this service completely bespoke for your needs.

Gents Collection Custom Made Pieces, Integrations and Wigs
The most natural finish possible, hair integrations pieces or full wigs that you can swim in, go to the gym, everyday activities. Wash and style your        hair as you would your own, if you are thinning and want to stop that natural process we can start with very small areas of hair that over time, if your own hair becomes more thinning or hair loss covers a larger area the integration/piece will change shape and size to accommodate this.
If your hair texture changes in thickness or texture we can change with you, allowing it to be a natural transition of your own hair.

Enhancers and Integrations for thinning hair
There are a wide range of integrations that you can choose from. Endless options available with varying levels of commitment and cost. There are large ranges of ready to wear hair that are off the peg or custom made integrations, allowing you to have more choice with colours lengths textures. An array of attachment methods are available from permanent to temporary, methods you can do yourself at home or more permanent methods that can be maintained in salon. Some of our clients simply use integrations so they don’t have to style their own hair, or they just want to have different hair on occasions.

Ready To Wear Wigs
We offer a large range of wigs that are ready to wear, either human hair or synthetic fibres, human hair wigs can be heat styled to your liking enabling you to change the style depending on your mood. Synthetic wigs can be very easy maintenance as no styling is needed, some types of synthetic wigs use a memory compound allowing the hair to retain the memory of the styling, fantastic for those of you that hate having to style your hair.

Ready to wear hair pieces
Ranging from ponytails, fringes, add length thickness or just to simply add colour – very easy to use and great fun offering lots of options for any type of hair desire.

MORE TESTIMONIALS

``Having found Jane at George’s Hairdressing, some time ago when i was quite depressed - the treatment and empathy i received lifted my spirits and gave me back my confidence. The comments are still positive from my family and friends who initially were gobsmacked.”

``The Saturday before, on the 10th, was the first time we met Jane. My Mother-in-law had asked me to find someone who could sort her out with a wig, as her hair is now extremely thin, and her scalp very visible, which made her very self conscious and embarrassed. I had high expectations of Jane, as she'd explained the process to me by phone it sounded very easy and she sounded friendly. I had a text to confirm the appointment, which seemed very efficient.

Thankfully, my assumption was 100% right! Greeted by welcoming staff, we were shown into a lovely bright private room. Jane is cheery, good humoured and so approachable, instantly we felt at ease. The atmosphere felt informal yet professional. My husband and I were impressed with how his mum was treated with kindness and compassion, without any sign of a pushy sales person in sight! Jane carefully listened to her clients wishes, and showed a good range of options available, whilst giving sound advice and guidance along the way. Jane said she would order several to try (no pressure to buy) and they should be in the following week, which they were. Again, text message to confirm ordered, and arrival.

As we walked in, the sight of 5 very natural grey mixed toned hairpieces laid out was impressive. I had expected them to perhaps look like wigs from years back, but the quality was stunning. The three of us felt very excited that at least one would be suitable, and after lots of swapping about, and discussing, Mother-in-law made her decision. It was more like Jane was a friend helping a friend, rather than a sales service. Wigs are competitively priced. We left the salon on a high, Mother-in-laws head held proud & high too!

It's only been 3 days, but comments received have been 'Wow!', 'you look beautiful!' and 'you look 20yrs younger'. Suffice to say, we would definitely recommend Jane's service to anyone, don't hesitate just give her a call. Thanks Jane!``

``Reading Suzanne’s story in the Boc newsletter and reaching a milestone birthday, I decided to talk to Jane and Lois about a made to measure real hair wig. Since losing all of my hair at the age of 29, there are two things which have changed my life and given me my confidence back: Mt permanent eyebrow tattoos and my made to measure wig.

The process is not quick, but quality and perfection do take time. And the finished product is well worth the wait. Lois talks you through every step and on that final day when I collected my hair, I felt ‘normal’ again by normal, I mean sitting in a chair in a hair salon, having my hair trimmed and styled. I had forgotten how much I used to enjoy that!

Caring for the wig is like going back to having hair a shock to the system at first! Shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, straighteners etc. My holiday suitcase is much heavier than it was with my synthetic wig. I wash my hair once a week, In the shower like everyone else does. However, I have the added advantage of having the choice of drying and styling it on my head or on a stand. Popping it off to straighten the back on a stand is great! The first couple of washes involved a few texts to Lois/Suzanne for advice on dry ins, leaving conditioner in, but this is all second nature now.

I decided to go long and blonde having been a mid-length bob and blonde in my other wig. I got an exact colour match, When I revealed my new look to colleagues and friends who do not know I have alopecia, I said I had extensions, The compliments where amazing!

The best part for me? Out for dinner with my best friend, she suddenly stopped mid conversation and just to say that I looked like my old self on our holiday in Gran Canaria in our twenties! I pointed out that there were a few more creases around the eyes, but, yes the new hair has given me a new lease of life.

I would recommend this to anyone. If you are not sure, Speak to Jane or Lois who will discuss the process with you.``
