Long gone are the days when women are ashamed of wearing wigs. They are one of the most convenient protective styles out there at the moment.

But, what happens after you pay for a wig and it starts to look a little, shall we say raggedy?

Well, this London-based wig laundry service has the answer.

Yomi Onashile, Founder of The Wig Bar London, came up with an affordable way to refresh your wig in as little as 24-hours.

“Wigs swiftly became a large part of my life, but little did I know how big a part they would play,” Yomi said in a statement. “After feeling frustration at the lack of high-quality affordable wigs on the market, I began making them myself and later, for friends and family. This demand quickly spiraled into a business and soon I was taking orders from customers I’d never met.”

You can choose from several services that are said to bring your wig back to life.

The Upgrade: this service includes a shampoo, condition, detangling treatment and straight/wavy style finish. Five-day turnaround time. £70.00

The 24-Hour Service: a standard treatment, but for those in a hurry. It includes shampoo, condition, detangling treatment and, straight/wavy style finish returned within 24 hours. £100.00.

The Color Pop: This comes with the standard service of a shampoo, deep condition, detangle and style, but with a custom color applied as either a full head of color, highlights or ombre finish. Seven-day turnaround time. £100.00.

The Glo Up: Shampoo, condition and detangling treatment on your wig as well as bleached knots, a customized hairline and, a custom style/cut. Seven-day turnaround time. £165.00.

The Lace Replacement: For wigs that are balding or if the frontal/closure area has been over-plucked. This service includes lace replacement in either a 4×4” or 13×6” size and can be combined with other washing and styling services offered by the Wig Bar London. Four-day turnaround time. From £70.00.

The Deconstruction: Out with the old, in with the almost new. Your old wig is deconstructed and after being washed, conditioned and detangled, a new wig is created using the existing hair and closure supplied. This also includes a straight or wavy finish. 14-day turnaround time. £200.00.
