Heather spent a decade as a wig designer for theatre before founding Custom Wig Company to create custom wigs for performers of all kinds, from reenactors to impersonators, Santas to Ben Franklins, and anything else imaginable. She is an experienced wig maker who brings attention to detail, love of the craft, and finely honed skills to the process of making custom wigs and hair goods.
Hannah has always had a fascination with hair and makeup: the drastic changes they have undergone throughout history and the subtle transformative power they can have on a performance. She stumbled into wigs purely by accident at Michigan State University when Heather did a workshop with the costume students. Since then she has fallen in headfirst, working on wigs, hair and makeup for numerous productions. She loves the endless creativity and meticulous craftsmanship of working at the Custom Wig Company.
Meredith joined the Custom Wig Company team as an apprentice, working her way up to join the team as an Associate Wig Builder. Originally from Louisville, she attended college in Texas, before returning to Kentucky and pursuing a career in wig building.
A strong believer in the story-telling power of hair, Hannah is fascinated by the transformative magic of wigs. Over the recent years she has studied the craft of a finely made wig, refining her skills on projects ranging from Show Girls to Cavemen, and ancient Warriors to cross-dressing Wizards.
