Atelier Sjoerd Didden bv

Design and rental of wigs for theatre, film, television en photografy



Handmade, lacefront, real hair wigs and hairpieces.

Beards, goatees, moustaches, sideburns, whiskers, imperial partial beards, mutton chops, Franz-Josef, Musketeers, Soul patches, chest hair, pubic hair (?!), combovers, fringes, weaves, hair extentions etc. From stock or made to order.

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.  

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 in Rotterdam, NL.


Renting wigs

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.

Atelier Sjoerd Didden is a rental company. We sell wigs only occasionally.

We send invoices per email.We can supply a ‘Verklaring Uitvoerenden & Leveranciers’ for you, to apply for the Stimuleringsmaatregel Filmproductie in Nederland of the Nederlandse Filmfonds.
