Marley was dead, to begin with.

With that iconic line, one of the most beloved and enduring Christmas traditions begins. Many theaters produce A Christmas Carol each year. Some present the show every  year while others offer it only once every few years. As fans of Christmas, Dickens and theatre, we’re always delighted to create custom Christmas Carol wigs.

Custom Wig Co founder Heather Fleming served as the Christmas Carol wig designer for multiple productions at the Barter Theatre and Actors Theatre of Louisville.  Over the years, Custom Wig Co has built pieces for productions across the country, including the Clarence Brown Theatre, Theatre on the Square and the McCarter Theatre. 

Do you need a custom Scrooge wig for your production? Perhaps a set of Marley and Ghost Marley wigs? Maybe you just need a custom Victorian wig for Belle or  Mrs. Fred or a festive Mr. Fezziwig wig? Whatever your Christmas Carol wig needs, we can build the perfect custom wigs or custom Victorian facial hair for your production. 

What You Need To Know About Custom Christmas Carol Wigs:

1 – Order early! Since all productions of A Christmas Carol happen at the same time, ordering early ensures your Christmas Carol wigs are ready to go long before first fittings and tech. Most years, our holiday build slots are full by midsummer, so the earlier you order, the better!

2 – We can build your wigs for Christmas Carol to fit specific cast members, or to fit a general size range. 

3 – We offer seasonal cleaning and maintenance! If your staff wig designer has no time to clean and strike the wigs, no problem – you can send your pieces back after the run, and we’ll clean, repair and restyle them, ready to go for the next year’s production.

4 – We build our custom wigs to suit. If you have designer renderings, we’ll work from those. If you have research, we can use that to articulate the style. No designs or research? Not a problem, we can design wigs just for your production of Christmas Carol – we know and love the Christmas Carol characters and their hair and we can create the perfect pieces for your show.
