A Private Consultation
With client comfort being our top priority, our in-depth consultations are carried out in a private room at our exclusive Selfridges salon. They are conducted by Gary and are expected to last approximately one hour. After discussing and identifying your specific hair loss issues, he will work with you to find an appropriate solution in-line with your lifestyle and desired results.
Gary aims to give you the very best advice, from the initial consultation to aftercare and maintenance. We know how important it is for your hair replacement solution to look and feel as natural as possible, so we will work with you to ensure you’re comfortable and happy with the finished aesthetic.
HAIR LOSS SOLUTIONS
More than 8 million women in the U.K suffer from some sort of hair loss. It can be caused by autoimmune disorders such as alopecia, hormonal changes, medical treatments such as chemotherapy to name but a few. Whatever the cause it is a stressful and very emotional experience. Our Bespoke Wig service is dedicated to finding a natural-looking, tailormade solution to help you look and feel your best.
If you’re experiencing hair thinning or partial hair loss, hair enhancers may be the best option for you. We offer both ready-made and custom-made pieces, personalising them to your individual style. They will be discreetly applied in-house, and we will also show you how to care for them at home.
Although extensive hair loss is upsetting, a wig or hairpiece can help you feel confident again. We specialise in a full range of both human hair and synthetic wigs that are carefully designed to be as natural and as comfortable to wear as possible. Choose from our ready-made wigs, or let us create a fully-bespoke one for you.
We know each client is different, which is why our hair loss solutions are completely tailored to your needs. Every piece in our collection is crafted from high-quality human hair or the finest synthetic materials, all sourced and hand-picked by Gary himself. We take into account all ethnicities and hair textures and he will cut, colour and style each hair piece to ensure the most natural finish.
Being able to appropriately care your wig or hairpiece is essential in keeping its natural appearance and longevity. Gary will offer styling tips and maintenance advice, and all human hair wigs purchased will be covered by our in-house maintenance and conditioning service.

Q & A
No Synthetic hair cannot be tinted or bleached
No. Intense heat (including hot water) must be avoided; e.g. no hairdryers, tongs or straightening irons.
Synthetic fibre wigs worn daily will need to be replaced on average every 3-4 months. Longer styles every 2-3 months
We do not recommend sleeping in a wig or hairpiece as this will reduce the lifespan by half.
A wig can be washed in cool water with products specifically made for synthetic fibres. Specific aftercare instructions will be given for each product purchased.
Before washing gently remove all tangles with a large, wide tooth comb. Fill a bowl with cool water and a small amount of synthetic wig shampoo, soak the wig in the water for a few minutes. Rinse and then apply synthetic wig conditioner, rinse thoroughly. Blot dry with a towel to absorb excess moisture and then place the wig on a stand or work head to dry naturally. We also recommend regularly applying a leave in moisturising spray in between washing, this will help extend the life of the wig or hairpiece.
The majority of our ready to wear wigs are adjustable in size. Many can be secured with mono tape or with snap lock clips. If you have hair underneath the wig hair grips can be used to secure it in place.
Human hair wigs should be washed using only products recommended by your consultant. Human hair wigs can be blow dried using a medium heat. Excessive heat will considerably shorten the lifespan of real hair. Please refer to the washing instructions for step by step aftercare.
A human hair wig can be coloured darker but not lighter. We do not recommend using home dyes at any time. Colouring a wig or hairpiece is a very specialised skill, therefore always refer to your consultant at Daniel Galvin before undertaking any colour change.
We can provide a full aftercare service which includes cutting, blow drying, colouring, deep conditioning and dressing the hair for events such as weddings.
A bespoke wig can take from 3-5 months to make. Every bespoke piece is hand knotted and made to the highest quality possible.
Before washing gently remove all tangles with a large, wide tooth comb. Add the recommended shampoo to a bowl of warm water and leave to soak for a few minutes, rinse thoroughly and repeat if necessary. Repeat this process with the conditioner recommended by your consultant. Please note a human hair wig must not be combed or brushed harshly when wet as this will loosen the hair. Always allow the wig to dry naturally and then when nearly dry it may be blow dried using gentle heat. The wig may be straightened or curled with tongs or straightening irons which do not exceed 140 degrees.
