If your client wants to try a wig and your salon does not specialize in wig fitting, get to know a specialist in your area for referrals. Consider going with the client to the appointment, which usually lasts between one and two hours, to help with the selection. If you style wigs, let your client know before their appointment. A wig specialist will be able to help determine whether to choose a synthetic or human hair wig, or a combination of the two.

Loss of hair and other changes in their appearance can undermine even the healthiest self-image. Your knowledge and skills, combined with a compassionate attitude, really can make a difference in someone’s life.
