Sheridan Smith as Cilla

Unless a production is deliberately larger than life, the wigs should go unnoticed, and for more than 40 years Wig Specialities has been getting that right for theatre, film and TV.

Wig Specialities’ Richard Mawbey has produced high quality, bespoke wigs for major countless theatrical presentations in London’s West End and New York’s Broadway. These include classical Shakespearean productions, contemporary plays, musicals, pantomime, ballet and opera.

Some of the company’s credits are Hair Spray, The Producers, Evita, Barnum and La Cage Aux Folles, to mention just a few. TV and Film work include Cilla, Poldark, Little Britain, Titanic, Vikings, The Tudors and Gavin and Stacey.

titanicAll the wigs for the principle players are handmade and individually styled to perfectly blend in with the overall look of the character. Wig Specialities also has a vast range of rentable wigs for other cast members.

Says Wig Specialities managing director Richard Mawbey: “The last thing we look for is critical acclaim. In most productions, a good wig is one that the audience does not know is a wig, which is why we take so much care in fitting and selecting the right colour palette for each wig.”
