Some things to be aware of while shopping for a wig
If you are purchasing your wig before your hair falls out the size may change slightly. At Freeda we have a professional fitter on staff that will customize the fit if the sizing changes after the hair falls out. Our wigs also have adjustable tabs in the back.
At Freeda’s we will also add some of your own hair to the hairline of the wig, so hold on to a lock of hair. It is comforting to be able to have your own hair on your wig.
