Wigs & Hair Pieces

Human Hair Wigs & Hair Pieces

We offer a wide variety of wigs and hair pieces to suit any style and budget.  Beginning with a consultation, we will work with you to find the right hair product for you, then style and color to create the perfect match.  

Full Head Wig

A full head wig covers all of the head, whereas a partial hair replacement will just cover the area of the scalp affected by hair loss. Total hair replacement with a full wig is an effective measure for a person with temporary total hair loss caused by chemotherapy or other medical condition. A full head wig is also a permanent solution for someone with trichotillomania, geneticly related hair loss, or an auto-immune condition causing frontal fibrosing alopecia (or lichen planopilaris), alopecia areata, totallis and universalis.

William Collier Design offers pre-made human hair wigs with a faster turnaround than a custom order. These hand crafted wigs, specifically designed using only the highest quality human hair and materials available can meet the needs of a large audience of clients. Wig caps created using unique combinations of light-weight silk-like spandex, softly woven lace, monofilament mesh offer flexibility to all clients. Our pre-made human hair wigs offer versatility, in a variety of choices in hair type, color, style and length.

Partial Hair Options – Hair Systems, Topettes

Our partial hair options may be the choice for anyone experiencing moderate to severe hair loss on the top of the head,  such as hair loss due to male and female pattern hair loss, lichen planopilaris, frontal fibrosing alopecia, trichotillomania, burns and abrasions and in some cases alopecia areata. Partial hair pieces / hair additions are designed to cover the area of the scalp affected — to give the appearance of a fuller head of hair. They come in custom or pre-made options. 

Hair Replacement Designed For You

William Collier Design is able to custom design a partial or full head hair replacement for any individual. A custom hair piece or wig provides an exact fit and a natural look for each individual’s needs. A mold or template is made of the area to be covered by the replacement hair, to ensure a proper fit. All aspects of the design will be considered when creating a custom hair replacement. With years of experience and training, your hair replacement consultant will work with you to make an educated decision on the base material, density, hair color, texture and length.

Client Story

"I consider William, Judi and Amanda to be part of my team of caregivers, they have truly helped bolster my emotional well-being as I go through the difficult process of chemotherapy treatment."

– Marjorie

Yelp

"When I first got my diagnosis of Lymphoma and was told i would lose my hair, I went to a wig store north of Seattle and bought a nice synthetic wig "off the shelf". However once my hair started falling out in clumps after my first treatment, I was devastated and decided I wanted a second wig that would look and feel more natural.

William Collier Design was recommended to me by a friend and I am so grateful. I called them up in tears and told them my hair was falling out in clumps, should I have my husband buzz it off prior to the appointment? They assured me there was no need, they would do that for me. They actually turned what I anticipated would be an incredibly traumatic experience into one that was very positive. William, Judi and Amanda are incredibly kind and warm human beings who obviously love what they do. I should mention the place is in a charming old building in Belltown and you are given complete privacy.  

Now for the wig!  Judi helped me to pick out a beautiful human hair wig which was then colored by Amanda and cut expertly by William exactly as I wanted.  It looks so natural, the nurses at the hospital asked me "have you not lost your hair yet?" No one can believe it's a wig! And although I believe there is no such thing as a completely comfortable wig (any more than there is a completely comfortable bra), it is much more comfortable than the wig I bought previously as the fit is perfect. After wearing it for a few weeks I decided I wanted the color to be more red, closer to my natural color, and they were so accommodating and understanding. I sent some photos and Amanda colored it PERFECTLY!   The cost is definitely something to consider carefully as it is not inexpensive. But when you think about the fact that you will probably be wearing it every day for close to a year, to me it was money well spent. The cost is all-inclusive (wig, cut, color, instruction on how to wash and style: for me this was three separate appointments). I consider William, Judi and Amanda to be part of my team of caregivers, they have truly helped bolster my emotional wellbeing as I go through the difficult process of chemotherapy treatment."

Human Hair Wig Care

Storing, Shampooing and Conditioning Human Hair Wigs and Hair Pieces

Hair Storage

The best way to store your hair is to place it on a Styrofoam head or other wig form. It would be most appropriate to cover the hair replacement with plastic, if for some reason you are not using it for a prolonged period.

Shampooing

For the most desirable results; fill the basin with cool water, add two tablespoons of shampoo (more if needed), and mix shampoo and water until suds appear. Place the hair piece into the basin and allow it to soak for a few minutes. There is no need to use any scrubbing or rubbing manipulations similar to those usually associated with shampooing. After the hair has been in the sudsy water for approximately three to five minutes, drain the basin and rinse the hair with cool water until all shampoo is completely gone and gently squeeze excess water from the hair.

Conditioning

Wigs and hair pieces will need to be conditioned after each shampoo.

Completely saturate the hair with the conditioner, but not necessarily at the base. Too much conditioner at the base may loosen the hand-tied knots in the system. While the hair is wet and saturated with conditioner, using the appropriate brush, start at the ends of the hair working your way up, and gently brush the hair in a downward motion to remove any tangle.

After the conditioner has been on the hair for at least three to five minutes and the tangles have been completely removed rinse the hair with cool water. Do not use any force to remove tangles.

After you have rinsed the hair, towel dry the hair to remove all excess moisture. Now you are ready to style the hair.

Styling

Place your wig or hair addition on a sturdy wig form. Canvas Wig Heads with a counter clamp work best, and last much longer than Styrofoam head forms. Secure with quality “quilting pins”. T-Pins which are often sold at wig stores are too large and will damage the bases of most human hair wigs and hair systems. T-Pins should only be used with synthetic wigs where the bases are much more durable. Using the recommended products for styling the hair will help you achieve the desired results. When styling the hair use gentle motions; when using a hand held hair dryer use medium heat and hold the dryer four to six inches from the hair, blowing hair in a downward direction. After you have achieved the desired style, spray the hair with hair spray. For best results use any hair spray sparingly.

General Maintenance

  • Always store your hair addition on a head form; smaller than the base to avoid stretching.
  • Most wearers can go from 10 to 14 days between shampoos.
  • Clean your tape and skin areas with alcohol wipes nightly. Use tape that is specific to your needs. Ask your hair replacement professional what will work best for you.
  • Never store your hair addition near a heat source above 120 degrees. (Or on a lamp.)
  • Sunlight fades all hair.
  • Never perm, color or cut your own hair addition.
  • When using a curling iron: Less is best.  Excess heat will wear the hair out quicker.  Make sure your curling iron is not too hot.
  • Wearing your hair addition while you are sleeping, on a regular basis, is hard on the hair and fiber and may reduce the life of the hair addition.
  • Your hair addition will naturally lose hair over time.  You can have hair added to the system, which will enhance the appearance.

Tips and Recommendations

 

It is suggested that you always use the products recommended by your hair specialist.  If you are not satisfied with the results of these products, call for proper instruction. It is important that you maintain your hair system consistent with these instructions in order to insure the condition of the hair.
