"I have recently purchased my 3rd wig from Wig Boutique Barrie. I am so pleased with all three of them. The service Crystal has provided is exceptional. She is kind and courteous making the experience of purchasing a wig enjoyable. She was patient while I took my time trying on just about every one she had in the boutique. There was no pressure to buy one and I felt completely comfortable with her. Like I was part of the family. Superb service from a very kind lady."− Diane - Aug 2014

This is the number one question. Technology has greatly improved in cap construction therefore allowing more air flow. Wigs are lightweight and comfortable.
A wig is secured by the construction of the cap. There are additional ways to secure your wig for those who require it. This can be discussed during your consultation.
Here at Wig Boutique Barrie we have an inexpensive line with prices from $33.33 to $133.33. Our most popular line starts at $199.99 to $555.55 with the average client spending $250.
Wigs are not too hot to wear. Technology has greatly improved today’s construction. Gone are the heavy wigs of the 60’s & 70’s.
Yes they are! They are very lightweight. A wig should feel comfortable on your head. It will feel secure because of the elasticized caps It will not fall off!
If a wig looks fake, there is a possibility of 3 reasons. First one is that it is a fun wig with an outrageous color. Second reason is just simply that it is a bad wig either because of quality or age! Number three is that it is not on properly. Trust us, there are many women wearing wigs that you do not notice. Like a man with a bad toupee. You don’t notice the men with good toupees! And you will not notice the ladies with great wigs!
Synthetic wigs are very easy. This is one of the reasons ladies love them. The fibers are pre-styled. Most styles just require a little brushing or placing with your fingers. They are all WASH & WEAR. It will go back to its style with little or no fussing at all!
Years ago, human hair wigs looked more natural than the synthetics. Technology advances has changed that. Synthetic wigs look very natural and gorgeous! They both have pros and cons. So, it is a personal choice. My personal preference is synthetics!
You would be surprised at how many times you would put her on if you owned a wig. They can be very convenient and handy in a pinch. Think back to a bad hair day or a time when you had to run out for something and your hair was not done? Trust me, once you own a wig, you will wonder how you managed without it!
Gone are the days when you did not want ANYONE to know you were wearing a wig. Clients are treating wigs like they treat their other fashion accessories. If you purchased a new bag you’d be proud. Do the same with your wig.
Well, it is partly true. With a synthetic wig on, you have to be very careful if you are close to extreme heat or a sudden burst of heat, such as opening up an oven door or having your stove burners on very high. Also near a fireplace or barbeque you should be cautious. Your wig will not go up in flames, but you could singe the ends from high heat. If you are cooking and your stove is not on high, you should be fine.
Stop by the boutique or call and have a consultation over the phone with our Trichologist Typically a 100% hand-tied or double monofilament tend to be the most gentle for those experiencing a sensitive scalp. We also offer a kit specific to your needs as well as a variety of other personal care products.
We do have a solution to that as well with no sweat liners. These can be purchased at an additional cost.
It is rather simple you’ll be impressed we go over all of this during the consultation and provide complete instructions.
Every one should own one. If you’re wearing it your piece daily we recommend two so that you can rotate the piece.
Check out our section specific on hair loss.
We do not recommend this as chemicals can add stress to the hair and damage it.
During our open hours we take walk-ins and do not book appointments. During our non open to the public hours we do take private appointments where you get the boutique one on one.
