Wig shops in UK

Postby Trish » Sun Mar 17, 2013 3:43 am

HI there,

My name is Trisha and I am MTF and from South Africa. I'm here in the UK on a post grad course.

OK to my question. Can anyone sugest ant wig shops that are friendly to transexuals?
I can find all sorts of places that I can order from online but I need somewhere that I can go in person and get some professional advice. Ideally somewhere around the London area but I'm also willing to travel pretty much anywhere in southern England/Midlands if need be.

Thanks.

Trisha

Hi Trisha,

Can I point you at this thread: http://forum.transgenderzone.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2575 - you might find some information there.

I had one wig which I bought in Lincoln (probably a bit far north and inaccessible for you) but I just walked into a shop that was recommended by a non-trans friend of a friend. Essentially wig shops are used to dealing in confidence as they generally cater for people on the trans* spectrum as well as cancer-sufferers and others with medical conditions so I don't imagine you'll have much problem. If you're in doubt find a respectable shop in Soho or Camden and you won't have too much difficulty as those are very LGBT friendly areas.

Hi Trish,

I personally don't have much experience on that front however, I did just want to say that so long as the shop looks respectable - you should be fine. I've recently started heading into my RLE and I've found that most places nowadays are quite receptive to us. I've politely asked to try on clothes and things and found that the shop assistants have been surprised but also helpful (they want to sell things afterall). I would add though, that I try to 'appear' as confident in myself as I can AND I also try to respect those also shopping there who may have no experience of Trans people. So far, it has worked for me.

So, go find a wig specialist and go in - you may be surprised at how nice they will be.

Just a note to say that to avoid breaking and advertising rules please only PM the poster a link or address. But discussion is fine as long as links and adverts are not posted. :)

Example: "I went to a place in Manchester! It was Great the owner Beryl (made up name) helps in a private room especially for transpeople - I will pm you the address and phone number..."

Is fine
