The first step towards having a custom wig or facial hair item created is taking a tracing of the head and/or face. This simple plastic tracing allows us to build pieces to fit the client, even if they cannot come for an in-person fitting. We produced these video tutorials for the process of tracing the head and the face.
If you are only having a wig made, then you only need to send a head tracing. If you are having a wig AND a beard or other facial hair made, you will need to send both a head and a face tracing. There is a video for each of these below. In addition, your contract will specify which tracings you need to send and by what date.
A few important notes – please read these before you take and mail your tracings!
Once your tracing is done, simply fold it and send it to us in a padded envelope. The Postal Service’s Flat Rate and Priority Mail envelopes are perfect. Your tracing is very sturdy, so we ask that you do not use large boxes or bubble wrap or packing peanuts – these are unnecessary and create waste and mess.
Please note that his location is not a store front and is not open to the public or for walk-ins.
As you get ready for your wig or beard, check out CWC Wig Owner’s Manual: Guide to Wig Care. It has all the information you’ll need, as well as the supplies you’ll want and what you should do when your wig arrives!
Wondering what we do with these tracings? Here’s a bit of the process of fitting a head tracing onto a block.
And this is the final outcome, the tracing is fitted to the block and ready for us to build a wig!
