After a conversation with a colleague, Jim discovered the Elite Hair International group in Paris making really thin wigs for women and men. They have an invisible front mesh matched to your skin colour and can be worn in the heat of summer, even walking on the beach.
Jim says: “With chemotherapy, people normally need a wig for around 12 months.” A private 1.5-hour consultation will see Jim work with you to create a bespoke wig exactly to your desires, specifications and personalised colour options. Jim takes your measurements and your style preference, emails it to Paris and the wig is often back in the salon within two weeks, ready to be trimmed and fitted.
The wigs are fully synthetic, and Jim is so confident in their quality that he says: “When I was in Paris, they put a lot of wigs in front of me on the table, they asked me to pick out the real hair one and I couldn’t.”
