Wigs.co.uk - The Wig Experts™
We believe everyone deserves to look and feel beautiful. No matter what size, shape or background.
People wear wigs for a variety of reasons. The main reason why people wear wigs in the 21st Century is because of hair loss. Hair loss can be caused by numerous things including genetics, disease and even stress! While sometimes hair grows back after a period of time, many times it does not. This is why some people choose to opt for wigs! Wigs offer fabulous hair to people who otherwise might not have any. The benefits of wigs don't stop there, though, and that is why many people without hair loss wear wigs as well! Synthetic wigs hold their style and take a fraction of the time that styling biological hair does. You can also change up your look with wigs and not have to worry about the damage that chemicals in dyes and bleach would cause. Feeling sassy? Try a short, red wig! Feeling sexy? Try a mid-length blonde one! Changing up your look with wigs is fun, liberating and gives you all of the confidence you will ever need. Go ahead, try a wig... we promise you won't regret it!
Human Hair Wigs
The Human Hair pieces we offer are top quality. Finding the perfect human hair to create these breathtaking styles is a tedious and time-consuming process. Just as there are a variety of synthetic fibers, human hair comes in a variety of grades. There is Human Hair and Remy Human Hair. Remy Human Hair pieces are considered the premium option this is because the cuticles are kept intact and running in the same direction, which reduces frizz and tangling. The four sources used in gathering the finest human hair are: China, Indonesia, India or Europe. Indonesian human hair is considered a lower grade, while the mixture of Chinese and Indian hair is found in most human hair and Remy human hairpieces. European human hair is the most high-end human hair on the market and as such is a rare find.
Synthetic Hair Wigs
Synthetic hair has come a long way from what it used to be, in fact today’s higher end synthetic pieces are giving human hair a run for their money. Synthetic Hair is a fiber that is great for a person on the go because it retains its style. There are two types of synthetic fibers: Heat Friendly Synthetic and Regular Synthetic. A regular synthetic fiber requires minimal care and/or little to no styling. Keep in mind no heat can be applied to a regular synthetic fiber. On the other hand, a Heat Friendly Synthetic is ready to wear out of the box but can also be heat styled.
Synthetic/Human Hair Blended Wigs
Human Hair is a favorite to many people, but it does require styling (as all human hair does). Synthetic hair will hold the style through washes, but sometimes doesn't look was realistic as actual human hair. Want the best of both worlds? Synthetic/Human Hair blended wigs give you ultimate ease and styling options. Any style created will hold for 3-4 washes before falling! With this special type of wig, you get all the benefits of synthetic hair while holding on the the natural look and feel of premium human hair. Just remember not to use any heat over 350 degrees because that will damage the synthetic fibers.
What is monofilament? A monofilament piece will give you the illusion of natural hair growth and parting versatility. Monofilament pieces are offered in different sizes. If you are looking for the most natural look, we recommend a full mono top. While a partial mono and a crown monofilament piece cover a smaller area they still provide movement and parting options. The full mono tops are also great for individuals looking for pieces with less perma-tease to them.
Looking for something lightweight and natural? Look no further a hand tied wigs do provide a natural look and flawless movement. This is achieved by perfecting the little details. We offer hand-tied caps, which are different from 100% hand-tied caps. Hand-tied caps are a combination of the hand-tied feature as well as machine-attached methods. While 100% hand-tied caps have each hair on the cap sewn into the base of the cap and not the weft. 100% hand-tied caps will provide you with the most versatility when it comes to your styling options. However, the more natural an item looks, the more time was taken to perfect it thus increasing the cost.
Basic Wig Cap Construction
Basic caps are a great option, despite the word “basic”. Many beautiful wigs are constructed with a basic cap and usually go unnoticed as a wig. Their convenience is unmatched by any other construction, as you may simply remove it from the box, shake and wear…simple as that! Aside from their very reasonable price compared to other cap constructions, basic caps have the most volume, especially in the crown area. Many wig wearers have experienced a feeling of “overheating” when wearing wigs. Basic caps have open wefting and allow for better air circulation, thus preventing the feeling of “overheating”.
Lace Front Wigs
Do you desire a natural looking hairline? Well, lace front pieces are your answer. A lace front is found in both basic caps and hand tied caps. A lace front piece gives you the option of wearing your hair forward or pulled back. Lace front pieces will give the illusion of natural hairline. We offer an assortment of lace front pieces, such as; sheer lace fronts and Swiss lace front pieces. Some pieces we offer will have an extended lace front, these are also known as ear-to-ear lace front pieces.
Extensions are a fun and flirty way to change up your look. Extensions are great for adding volume, length or color to your look. Our extensions do come in different styles. We offer clip-in, halo, color and wefted extensions. Keep in mind some extensions can be customized. Wefted extensions can be customized and adhered by a professional stylist. On the other hand clip in extensions are ready to go and need you to only snap the extension in. Extensions will also come in human hair, synthetic and heat friendly synthetic fibers. For longer lasting results, the different hair fibers should be cared for with the corresponding hair products.
Toppers are a great way to add volume, cover up hair loss or simply change your look. Toppers are transition pieces for clients not ready for a wig. Toppers and top pieces do come in various bases sizes. The varying base sizes allow for different areas of coverage. These pieces blend in well with your own biological hair. Just like our wigs toppers will come in different cap constructions and hair types. To find the perfect base size for your topper, we recommend measuring your area of hair loss. This will provide the optimum amount of coverage… should you need assistance with this our experts are always ready to help.
Care Products for Wigs
When picking a care product it is crucial to know what hair type you are caring for. If you have a human hairpiece, we recommend our Beautimark Human Hair care products. We DO NOT recommend human hair products for your biological hair. Using shampoo and conditioners for biological hair on a wig, could have adverse results. If you have a synthetic, heat friendly synthetic or a blend of premium synthetic and human hair, we recommend using our Beautimark synthetic hair products. All the care products offered can be found on our website under the tab “care products”.

Not everyone has the same sized head, and we understand that. This is why many of the most popular styles come in average sizes, petite sizes, and large sizes. Average sized caps will fit the majority of people because of the adjustable straps that can loosen or tighten the cap from 1-2 inches. If the average cap is still too big (or too small), that's how you know that you need a different size cap! Before purchasing your wig, make sure you measure your head to assure that you are choosing the right cap size.
Wig Color Options
Our experts are great with color assistance, as they go through extensive color training. However, we also offer color rings and a tru-color match chart. Our color rings come by manufacturer; this means, you need to know the style you want in order to get the related color ring. Our tru-color charts can be found on our website, this chart allows you to view the colors in their entirety on a mannequin before making your purchase. When color matching you also have the option to send in a hair or color sample you like to an expert for the best match. This can be done via email or post.

Wigs For Children
Due to a variety of reasons including alopecia and chemotherapy, wigs are not just for adults! Many children lose their hair at a young age. While sometimes the hair grows back, other times it does not. This is why wigs for children are a great option for those who want to maintain a beautiful head of hair, even if they can't grow it themselves! Wigs for kids come in a variety of colors, lengths and styles. Children can be picky, so we want to make sure they have as many options as they possibly can! Keep in mind that many adult-sized wigs come in petite sizes that can potentially fit a child's head as well. This expands the options available to children! If the petite size is too big, most petite wigs come with adjustable straps that will ensure that the wig is nice and snug for a comfortable fit. Just detach the adjustable straps from the underside of the wigs' nape and tighten. With wigs for children, every child can have a beautiful head of hair!
