Our experienced, close-knit team works hard to ensure that every aspect of The Wonderful Wig Company runs smoothly. We understand that, in the order to achieve the most heartfelt customer experience, you need to know who’s who. Well, here you can see the people behind our multi-award-winning project and put faces to names.
