Discovering Confidence with Mandeville London

Alopecia is more than just hair loss. It's a journey filled with challenges, learning, and most importantly, rediscovery of confidence. In the heart of Fulham, Mandeville London stands as a beacon of hope and support for women, men and children navigating this journey. Our specialists in human hair wigs are not just about covering a bare scalp or the hair underneath the wig; they're about unveiling a new layer of self-assurance and comfort for individuals who experience alopecia areata and wear wigs.

Understanding Hair Loss Caused By Alopecia

Alopecia is an autoimmune condition often characterised by patchy hair loss, abnormal shedding or total hair loss across the body. It can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender, and its unpredictability can be emotionally taxing. While the physical aspect of hair loss is visible, the emotional and psychological impacts are profound, often leading individuals to seek solutions that offer more than just aesthetic appeal.

Celebrating 50 Years of Mandeville London Wigs

Varieties of Alopecia Include:

  • Alopecia areata: Usually results in patchy unpredictable hair loss across the scalp. This autoimmune disorder can be more commonly seen in individuals with conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, vitiligo, and Down’s syndrome.
  • Alopecia totalis: Another form of the autoimmune disorder which results in total loss of hair on the scalp.
  • Alopecia universalis: This is also an autoimmune condition, representing a more extensive form of hair loss across the body including body hair, eyelashes and eyebrows.
  • Scarring alopecia: This type results from irreversible damage to the hair follicles, often observed in women who are post-menopausal.
  • Anagen effluvium: Sudden dramatic hair fall typically induced by cancer medical treatments which is usually temporary.
  • Telogen effluvium: This form of temporary hair loss can occur due to the body’s response to hormonal fluctuations, such as those experienced during pregnancy, significant stress, acute or chronic illnesses, dietary changes, or medication for conditions like hypertension.

Mandeville London: A Specialist in Alopecia Wigs

At Mandeville London, we specialise in creating real hair wigs that cater specifically to the needs of individuals with all types of hair loss caused by alopecia. Our approach to service is holistic, combining empathy, expertise, and craftsmanship to hand-make alopecia wigs that inspire confidence and comfort.

Every journey with alopecia is unique, and so are our consultations. We take the time to understand your medical condition, hair loss, lifestyle, and your aesthetic preferences. This understanding allows us to recommend the ideal human hair wig tailored to your needs, ensuring that your alopecia wig is not just a perfect fit in terms of your hairpiece size but also in terms of your life.

The Finest Alopecia Wig Materials

We believe that wearing a wig for someone with alopecia should be as comfortable as it is beautiful. That's why we use only the finest human hair and materials, selected for their natural appearance, lightweight feel, and breathability. Our alopecia wigs are designed to be comfortable enough to wear all day, every day, without causing irritation or discomfort even to sensitive scalps. Unlike many hair replacement systems, our wigs for hair loss are designed to be secured and comfortably removed at will each night, negating the use of any messy glue or weaves that pull on any existing hair causing further damage.

Expert Craftsmanship

Our team of skilled artisans handcraft each wig with precision and care. We employ techniques that ensure each wig and head moves naturally and mimics the appearance of real hair growth patterns as well as a natural hairline. This attention to detail means that, unlike synthetic wigs or machine made wigs, our lace wigs not only look natural but feel and behave like natural hair.

Human Hair Wigs Personalisation and Styling

With options such as scarves or turbans to wear on your head, we understand that purchasing a wig is a deeply personal choice. Whether you're seeking to replicate your natural hair or seize the opportunity to experiment with new styles, our range of customisation options allows you to personalise a bespoke wig to your heart's content with our Made to Measure collection. From colour and cut to texture and length, we work with you to create your ideal wig that reflects your natural look, personal style and preferences.

Can you get a wig on NHS for alopecia?

Wigs are available on the NHS, however there are only very few who fit within the parameters set by the NHS to get their wigs for free. Many who are diagnosed with alopecia are made to feel that their hair loss is 'cosmetic,' and therefore help on the NHS is limited. For those who do not qualify for a free wig, according to the NHS website, a full bespoke human hair wig costs around £300, but we would suggest you to shop around on the understanding this is an extremely limited service, and they may not be able to provide you with the results you are looking for.

Are wigs good for alopecia areata?

Comfort of the wearer wearing the wig, scarf or hat. For those with alopecia, it gives the individual the confidence they need for future growth. Kayla says that wearing a wig has been helpful to her, she is able to do pretty much everything. "Having an amazing wig will make me feel like the best person in the world."
