Wig Shopping Questionnaire

by, Tia Maria 

Over the years I have worked with many people and wig clients. Many of those clients were in need of help to find their perfect wig among the VAST wig options available.  In order to help narrow down what my client is looking for, I created a wig information and questionnaire sheet. Many elements go into buying a wig, and I want you to avoid some common wig-buying mistakes.

When someone comes to me asking for help, this questionnaire allows me to determine what they are looking for, what their likes and dislikes are, price points, etc.  Whether you are working with a wig coach like myself or just shopping on your own, I hope this document helps you on your wig journey and narrowing down your wig purchases.  If you would support finding the right wig for you, please complete this questionnaire and connect me at orders@tmwigs.com.  HAPPY WIG SHOPPING!!
