Wig Styling and Refurbishment

Are you in the habit of buying new wigs when your old ones look like they’ve had their day? Send them to Paul at Born where he will breathe new life into them. Paul can make them look nearly brand new. Save yourself a fortune by getting your old hair refurbished or restyled if you fancy a change.

If it’s just for a detangle, shampoo and condition or a complete restyle Paul will be happy to help and discuss what you want to achieve.

We recommend your wig be shampooed and conditioned every 6-7 wears to get rid of the build up of sweat, dirt and makeup which will shorten the life of your wig.

Synthetic wigs have style memory so when they are cleaned and left to air dry, they will bounce back to their original style. If you would rather work with a clean slate, steaming the hair dead straight could be the answer. Steaming removes the style memory so you can do what you like with the hair. Steaming adds approximately 12 months to the life of the wig.

All you need to do is post your hair to Paul at Born, 17 Birch Avenue, Whitefield, Manchester M45 7HW and prepared to be delighted.

Be realistic with the wig, if you can see it’s ready for the bin, don’t waste your money having it sent to Paul only to be advised to throw it away.

Wigs don’t last forever, but with proper care and maintenance you can prolong their lives drastically.

Products used:

Synthetic hair does not have hair cuticles like real hair so if you use products that are meant for real hair you will get build-up of product on the synthetic hair which shortens the life of the wig and makes it look dull. Paul uses products specially formulated for synthetic hair ensuring you of great results every time.

I sent a few of my synthetic wigs to Paul at Born for a refresh as they hadn’t had any attention for a while and were looking a little worse for wear. I was going to buy a few more but thought I would give this service a try first before splashing out. I’m so glad I did as I have saved myself a fortune in getting my old wigs detangled, washed, conditioned, steamed and the style brought back to life. They are new just like new. The service was excellent quick and the results fantastic.

I’m in love with my old hair again.

Unhappy with that wig ? Well I was and deeply so, excitedly opening the box on the new purchase and it was a resounding “urrk” from me. Maybe I would grow to like it, but sadly not. So I did had it restyled and it was sadly no better, possibly worse and thus thrown in a very dark corner for a year or so.

Nothing to lose, Paul came to the rescue – seemingly reveling in the challenge set before him.

A wash, nip, tuck, restyle and some kind of magic resulted in what looked like a new wig and style.

One word, fabulous !

Paul will not cut your wig. This service is for styling and refurbishment only.

I’ve used Paul’s wig refurbishment a few times and I am very happy the with service. I’ve send him a few wigs now and he’s done a bang up job on all of them.

One wig I’d been holding on to for a couple of years and nearly threw it out. Paul brought it back to life. I can wholeheartedly recommend this service.

I can’t praise Paul’s wig service highly enough. I was delighted when I received my hair back. It was ready for the bin, or so I thought. Then I remembered about Paul’s service and promptly popped my wig in the post to him. I was chuckling to myself as I trotted down to the post office thinking “If he can fix this, he would be a true miracle worker.” And he did!

The hair was so knotted there was no way I could get a comb or brush through it. I have no idea how he did it, but he did, and it looks beautiful again. I’ve saved £££’s on a new wig. Paul send me photos of the hair at every step so I could choose how I wanted the wig to look. Just straight or with a curl. I went for a lovely soft curl, which I love. Clear images were sent to me so I could approve the hair which included a picture from every angle and some close-up shots.

The service was nice and quick. I just can’t fault it. The other nice thing was to be able to support Paul as I know his makeup side is closed due to the virus and I wanted to help him, in my own little way, by putting some work his way. If you do have some hair that you think has had its day give him a go! You’ll will not be disappointed.

We all have our favourite wig, and this was mine. Sadly, it had seen better days and I thought it was ready to be thrown out. I’ve had it for years and it has done me well. I sent it to Paul at Born to see what he could do with it. I didn’t hold up much hope. Paul sent me some pictures when he had finished working on the hair and I was totally amazed. It looked like new.

I saw somewhere, someone call Paul ‘The Wig Whisper’. I can’t agree more. The best £15 I’ve spent on my hair. Thank you Paul I’m so happy with the results. If anyone has a wig, they think is ready for the bin you have nothing to lose by sending it to Paul. If he can’t fix it, he will be honest and let you know before you waste any cash.

I had a wig that I had worn only when in the shop on the day I purchased it, later at home when trying it on I realised the style I had made a huge mistake and it didn’t suit me at all, so I put it in the bottom of the wardrobe, out of sight out of mind. 

When to my surprise I saw a posting on the Born Facebook page explaining that Paul had completed a course on wig styling and care. 

I contacted Paul and he was so very helpful as I explained my mistake and he had full confidence that he would be able to restyle the wig into a style that we both felt would be more suitable for me. 

I posted the wig off and within a couple of days Paul contacted me to show pictures of what he had achieved, it was amazing to see the transformation into exactly as he described and I now want to wear. 

Born have saved me an embarrassing financial total loss and for a small cost changed a wig that was very close to the rubbish bin into a style that is bespoke for me, quickly and efficiently returned washed, conditioned and so ready to wear, thank you Paul and Born. 

I personally think that using the fabulous new Born wig service has saved me a lot of money and a massive amount of anguish.

I definitely thought my favourite wig had really had its day. It was knotted, dull and covered in products. I sent it off to Paul at Born, not really hoping for much, but it came back like new. I was so pleased to have my old wig back and looking so wonderful. The service was reliable and quick. I was sent good quality images so I could see the hair before it was posted back to me and the price was much cheaper than buying a new wig. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul?s wig service. Go on ladies get your old wigs out and send them to Paul to breathe new life into them. You?ll be so glad you did.
