Welcome to "The Wig Place" where I provide caring and supportive advice to help you wear your hair with confidence.
In a private salon centrally located in Geelong, you have the opportunity to discuss your hair needs with an experienced hairdresser.
Megan Purdy - Hairdresser and Wig Specialist
I'm a wife, mum of 3, a lover of coffee and all things creative and beautiful.
Early in my life I knew that hairdressing and making people feel good about themselves was to be my career path.
With over 35 years in the hairdressing industry the progression in my career now leads me to provide a compassionate and caring service to my clients. Finding the perfect wig to make you feel confident and fabulous.
After supporting a friend during her cancer treatment I understood how important a wig can be to make you feel "as normal as possible" during a difficult time.
During a private consultation I offer a no obligation service to guide you in choosing a wig that is tailored especially for you. I explain about the different types of wigs available and we then decide which wig will be best for you. With over 50 wigs in the salon, there are many to choose from. Once we have chosen a style we then choose the best colour.
If the wig you choose is not in stock it will need to be ordered.
At this stage you are asked to pay a $100 deposit.
(Please allow approx 7 days for arrival).
At the final fitting I will trim and style your wig and show you how to best maintain and care for it. You'll be amazed how easy it will be.
You’re not alone... I offer continued service and support throughout your journey and the life of your wig.
Here is a glimpse of what happens in the salon at the "The Wig Place".
I aim to provide you with a safe and welcoming environment where you can feel at ease to find your perfect hair.
Many people find sitting in a salon amongst other clients very confronting when they are dealing with hair loss. So in the intimacy of the salon, I offer you the chance to have a private, comfortable setting to have your hair cut and styled.
It's is so important that the wig you choose fits well and looks great. We spend time making sure you know how to wear your new hair confidently and that you are educated in caring for your wig.
Everything you'll need to maintain your wig is available at The Wig Place.
We also sell a lovely range of turbans, hats and wig stands.
You may be able to claim a Medical Wig through your Private Health Insurance Extra's Cover.
Give your provider a call and ask them if you are eligible to claim a Medical Wig. If this is available on your policy you would then claim through them once your wig has been purchased.
Do you need a gift for someone who wears Wigs or Toppers?
Gift Vouchers are now available for purchase.

Synthetic wigs are great wigs to wear for everyday use - they are more durable and are more natural-looking than ever before.
These wigs are much cheaper than human hair wigs. They are recommended for women with all sorts hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia, thinning or damaged hair.
They are lightweight, cool and have adjustable straps to make the cap larger or smaller.
Synthetic wigs offer the ability of carefree styles, that when wet, will always bounce back to their original style once dry.
Many wigs have natural lace fronts and monofilament scalps allowing versatility and ability to change the part.
Synthetics must be treated properly with specialised products made to enhance the quality and longevity of the wig.
It all sounds confusing but once I've explained it, it will all make sense.
