Hair loss is a dreadful thing. A good head of hair is our crowning glory. Something that defines our look, and thereby our personality and confidence. When you start losing it, or have lost it, you feel vulnerable, trying to make sense of this new situation. You need support, love and understanding.
This you will get in bucket loads at the Shepperton Wig Company. This lovely independent local company offers a quiet, light and peaceful space where you will be made welcome and feel safe. Jo and Linda set up the business in 2002 They had previously worked on stage and film and initially the private wigs were a small percentage of the business.
Although you can still see many a hairy piece of work from Jo and Linda’s talented hands on stage and in many films, at least 50% of their business is now dealing with those who have suffered hair loss, whether as a result of cancer treatment of from alopecia.
The Shepperton Wig Company moved to their current premises at Vicarage Farm, Sunbury, in 2015. As the business grew and one of the adjacent units became available Jo and Linda decided to take the plunge and expand their services to offer their clients more than ‘just’ a wig service. They have just opened a wellbeing section, offering hair services, massage, reflexology and facial reflexology for their clients.
Sessions are by appointment only and are targeted uniquely at the Shepperton Wig Company clients or anyone with hair loss. When you enter the premises you are greeted with friendly smiles of the staff and the delightful aroma of essential oils. Here you can stock up on Neil’s Yard products to give you a sense of luxury and wellbeing. You can also treat yourself to perfume as well as a range of fabulously trendy turbans and silk scarves. The emphasis is on helping clients to feel good about themselves.
For sale is a huge range of wigs of course and hair pieces in both real hair and acrylic (which look extremely good these days). If you can’t afford a new wig, you can select one of the pre-loved items and all you need is to make a donation, all of which goes to charity.
There is a separate hair dressing room where clients can get some pampering as well as understanding care and maintenance of their wigs.
This is a tranquil space where clients can start to think about themselves. You will find advice on other services available locally which may help such as nutrition and counselling. You will be able to find your confidence and beauty again and feel strengthened at a time you need your energy to get well.
There is nowhere quite like the Shepperton Wig Company unless you make your way into London. Here you can drive, park right outside and be in good hands in a peaceful environment.
