Seahorse Shopping Guide -
Wigs: 8 entries
Some of us are follicularly challenged or our social situation prevents us having long feminine hair. For those, there are several shops selling quality wigs and are experienced helping cross-dressers.
The Breast Form Store
PO Box 236 Swansea NSW 2281
(02) 4972 0347
Contact: Tanya and David
"The Breastform Store does not just sell breastforms, but they also sell a range of quality Henry Margu wigs. As with all their products, Tanya and David offer great service and advice about wigs. I have bought two wigs from them at very reasonable prices." - Christine.
The Individual Wig Shop
Shop 4, 16-32 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst. Sydney. NSW 2010 (just around the corner from Hyde Park)
Tel: (612) 9332 2112
Fax: (612) 9332 2793
"A group of us visited this shop as part of our Pre-Ball Shopping Trip in 2012 and repeated the visit in 2013. It is staffed by several of the former Celebrity Wigs Store at Bondi Junction, which closed some time ago.
They have a big range of synthetic and human hair wigs for sales. The service and interest by the staff was very good." - Christine.
Kylie Clarke Wigmaking
Studio 4, Shed 1, 1 Canal Rd, Leichhardt, NSW 2040
Tel: (02) 9560 8577
Mobile: 0418 436 650
Fax: (02) 9560 8533
"Kylie is a specialist bespoke wigmaker with extensive experience in the film industry. She can make individually designed and fitted wigs and hair pieces with top quality imported European hair. Naturally products of this high quality are, of course, not cheap, but well worth the cost for those who do not want to look like they are wearing a wig."
"Kylie was wonderful with the initial consultation and later the fitting and styling. She is very professional and expert in her craft, as well as being friendly and respectful towards transgender and cross-dressing clients."
"I am delighted with the result. Previously, I used a synthetic fringe held in place by a head band, which looked less realistic and was somewhat uncomfortable. The new hairpiece is made of human hair, matched to my own hair. It is very comfortable and it looks and feels like my own hair."
"The photos below will give you a comparison" - Christine, December 2013.

"Celebrity Wigs has been around many years. Good and helpful shop on Oxford Street and excellent on-line shopping. Staff are realistic and supportive. I'd bought my wig elsewhere but I took it into Celebrity Wigs for a styling. No charge and a good chat on things you should know about wigs! Nice! I came back." - Jan.
"I bought a new wig here when I first started going out in public. The service was excellent. Subsequently, after I grew my hair long. I bought a couple of fringes to fill out the rather thin front section of my hair. They also sell wig shampoo and conditioner - a must for keeping your wig clean and in good condition." - Christine.
"Their Sydney shop has closed, but they are still operating a shop in Melbourne and purchases can still be made online." - Christine, August 2012.
