Katie’s Wigs was founded in 2004 and has become an established supplier of wigs and facial hair to the theatre, TV and film

‘We provide, bespoke human hair wigs, all handmade in the UK by our highly experienced knotter’s and foundation makers. All of our wigs are hand crafted with the finest quality hair and laces available, and all of our wigs are designed and customised for their specified use, whether it be for daily wear, fashion, TV, film or theatre. We work alongside our clients to provide solutions to fit company budgets, projects or personal requirements.’
Katie, the director or the company, has been making wigs for 20yrs after training with Ray Marston at his studio in London as one of his in-house makers. Over the years, Katie has been all over the world, working alongside some of the world’s best wig makers and designers. This has allowed her to develop her skills by learning the exclusive techniques and difficulties overcome from the masters of the wig world. Using this knowledge, has allowed Katie to establish her own wig company – Katie’s Wigs & Co. Katie now has an extensive team behind her who have years of training, and work to the highest of standard, with every job being quality checked to ensure everything that leaves the studio is 100% perfect.
Katie has now decided she wants to share her expertise and knowledge of the wig industry with others, offering short courses for all levels and workshops for colleges, universities and salons or anybody who would just like to see a glimpse into the traditional art of wig-making.
