Special wigs: Allonge and Rococo wigs made from buffalo or human hair, horse hair wigs and authentic wigs for judges or lawyers.
Wiggies: In the Dutch language we use the term "wiggies" for prefabricated machine-made wigs, from real hair or from synthetic fibers, usually one-size-fits-all without lace front. In some cases an "unnatural" effect can be intended, for those cases have ample "wiggies" for rent.
Materials and tools for rent: Linen heads, table stands, wig boxes, travel make-up mirrors etc.
Materials for sale: Wig caps, spirit gum, bald caps, springs, toupet clasps etc.
We rent out wigs for theatre, film, television and photography, mainly to make-up artists and beauticians (special) make-up artists, as well as to film-and television producers and theatre companies.
Working with lace front theatre wigs requires a special skill you must master. When hiring "real" theater wigs, one needs to be an experienced hair and make-up artist. However, everything can be learned. In case you think you might need some additional training, please feel free to contact us.
Sorry: Our product is not suitable for everyday use by private people. Do you require a wig to wear in everyday life, we refer you to www.hairconsultancy.nl located in Bussum, NL.
Atelier Sjoerd Didden is a rental company. We seldom sell wigs. For usage in theatre, film, television en photography wigs are usually needed for a restricted period of time, variying from one day to one or more (theatre) seasons. Therefor renting is nearly allways more economical than buying.
Our stock of handmade wigs has grown to be the largest of Europe. We own over 12.500 immedeately deliverable wigs.
Renting from stock
You are welcome to make an appointment to choose the wigs you like to rent yourself. Are you a make-up hair artist (m/f)? Make sure you know the head sizes of your actors (m/f). Or even better: bring the actors along to our workshop in Rotterdam for a fitting session. Fitting sessions at our workshop are by appointment only. Please call or email us in advance.
Did you find the right wigs for a certain role or charachter, and do you expect you will be needing it again in the near future? We are allways willing to reserve a wig for you. Upon returning the wigs, please mention this specifically, we will keep the wig aside for you.
Allthough selecting you own wigs is preferable, situations can emerge during filming or rehearsing, when you are not able to visit our workshop in person. In these cases we can ship a selection of wigs to you.
It is enormously helpfull, when you describe clearly what kind of wig you are looking for. Besides the head size, we need as much info as possible, like photo's, color samples, descriptions of the hair quality, styling, etc Please Google some pictures as examples, to help us make the right choice for you from our stock of 12,500 pieces.
Ordering newly made wigs
We do make wigs to measurements of the actor/singer dancer/model (m/f) who will wear the wig. We can start making a wig once we have measured the head size. We do this by fitting a prepared lace foundation. The fitting is done by appointment in Rotterdam. To make a wig by hand, we need six to eight weeks after we fitted the foundation.
We produce a customised wig for the price of one rental season. On short notice, it is possible only to hire stock wigs. When renting less than 10 days, it is more economically to rent a stock wig.
