At this time, our studio space is closed for the safety of our artisans but work on your orders continues and we do not anticipate any delays in completing projects. To help us stay on track, however, we ask you to please send your tracings as soon as you safely and conveniently can in order to avoid any potential delays should postal service be disrupted. If you do not expect to be able to mail your tracings to us as planned, please let us know.
A helpful tip: To limit your contact with the outside world, you can pay for and print a shipping label and then schedule a free pick up from the US Postal service during your normal mail delivery. This can all be done from usps.com and they will even deliver free priority mail shipping supplies to you if you need them.
Your tracings can be mailed in any large envelope, including those already used. The mailers amazon.com sends small items in are an especially great choice for reusing to mail tracings but a regular manila envelope is just fine.
Information on completing your tracings and shipping them is below and remains unchanged.
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.
We are still able to receive incoming shipments at this address as usual. As mentioned above, you can pay for and print a shipping label via usps.com to avoid visiting the local post office.
Please note that his location is not a store front and is not open to the public or for walk-ins.
