Whether you are looking for someone to make a wig especially for you or you prefer to buy one off the rack, there are a number of custom and ready-made wig makers in the United States. A custom wig costs more than a ready-made one but it may have a more natural look, especially if it is made from your own hair. Either way, most wig makers work exclusively with human hair, as it is more natural looking than synthetic hair.
