The Wig Studio is based inside Reflections Hair Studio in Ramsey in the Isle of Man. Both the salon and the Hair Studio are owned by experienced hair stylist Karen Jones. Karen has a wealth of experience working with wigs and hairpieces and is happy to help clients choose styles and colours which will suit their skin tone, personality and lifestyle. After running Reflections Hair Studio for a couple of years, Karen became very aware of the need for a professional wig supplier on the Isle of Man. The Wig Studio was founded in 2002.
Over the ensuing ten years, they have built good working relationships with quality, reliable and trustworthy UK suppliers, quickly discounting the lower-end suppliers with poor quality products. Over those last ten years The Wig Studio has helped many Isle of Man (and a few UK) residents with a solution to their hair loss problems.
Karen has a selection of wigs and hairpieces for you to look at, touch and try. A vast array of exciting hair colours and styles are available. All wigs and hairpieces have been specially designed to give you confidence and security when worn.
At The Wig Studio Isle of Man wigs are their speciality and they are there to introduce you to the sometimes confusing world of temporary hair replacement. They have a lot of experience and can advise and guide you through a wide selection of synthetic and human hair wigs to suit all ages, styles and budgets, helping you to make the right choice for you and your circumstances without leaving the Isle of Man.

NHS Supply of wigs during medical treatment or long term hair loss.
The Wig Studio is delighted to have been chosen to have an agreement with Nobles Hospital and the NHS on the Isle of Man.
If you need to wear a wig due to undergoing chemotherapy or other medical treatment, the hospital will give you an authorisation letter for you to bring along to your consultation, this letter is our authority to supply you with a wig within the guidelines of the NHS. (without it, or a direct referral from the hospital we cannot offer you the NHS subsidy).
The health service will allocate £150.00, for you to spend on your wig. They have a varied stock of wigs to choose from that fall within this budget and are confident that you will find something to suit you.
They are happy to show you wigs from the higher price ranges too, including human hair and semi custom made wigs, should you wish to see them, if you decide to take one of these, the difference will be payable by yourself, on the day of collection and is not able to be claimed back from the NHS. They can take payment for this by cash or cheque.
For you to choose your hair replacement, the first thing you need to do is call the studio on 01624 814056 or firstname.lastname@example.org enclosing your contact number. They will then arrange a consultation appointment for you. Because they are a hairdressing business too, it is usual for the person answering the phone to ask you to leave your name and contact number so that you can be called back personally, when they will have time to chat about your requirements, rather than trying to hurriedly talk whilst in the middle of another appointment.
Reservation for your consultation can be made for you during the working day, when there are likely to be other clients in the studio or they can make arrangements for you to have a private appointment when you will be the only client in the studio, whichever you feel most comfortable with. An initial consultation will normally be booked for 30-45 minutes. They can usually arrange for your visit to be within a few days of your call, and we will try to fit around your medical appointments.
Perhaps the thought of choosing your hair replacement is a concern for you – firstly we must just say that the wigs of yester-year are long gone, thankfully. All the wigs that The Wig Studio stock and sell are of good quality and are not ‘wig like’ at all.
Karen has over 20 years experience of hairdressing and over 10 years experience of hair replacements and wigs. After they have selected the right wig for you, if it needs it, they will trim it to make it personal to you, so that you can wear your hair replacement with confidence as soon as you need it. It is advisable to choose your wig as early as possible after knowing you will be starting chemotherapy, so that should you lose your natural hair in the early days of the treatment, you will have the wig ready and waiting. Choosing it early, also has the added advantage of allowing them to see you with your natural hair, which will help them when selecting the wigs for you to try.
They carry a very large and varied stock at all times, but if they are not able to find a suitable wig for you on your first visit, they have hundreds of others for you to choose from in colour brochures, and these can be with them, usually, within 2 – 3 working days.
They offer a FREE 30 minute, without obligation appointment to discuss your needs. Please call 01624 814056 for more information or to book your consultation.
