There are many custom wig studios...but only one HERO HAIR (cont'd).

The HERO HAIR difference gives you what only our studio provides.

 

Going beyond the mere professional creation of your custom piece, HERO HAIR's superior craftsmanship, cutting-edge materials, pioneered methodologies, unparalleled, highly personalized client care from the point of first inquiry to final delivery, and exclusive comprehensive services available nowhere else far beyond the sale put our studio at the vanguard of the global custom wig & facial hair industry.

 

A HERO HAIR custom wig, facial hair application, or hairpiece application is the state-of-the-art, the highest physical quality capable of being produced today. Under our studio's Motion Picture & Television Division, our work has appeared prominently in major studio productions such as MARVEL Studios' Hawkeye, starring Hailee Steinfeld, 20th Century Studios' production of The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman (for which HERO HAIR built several of the featured center-ring performance wigs for the characters known as "The Oddities"), Apple TV+'s production of SCHMIGADOON!, IMAGINE Entertainment's tick, tick...BOOM!, starring Andrew Garfield, M. Night Shyamalan's SERVANT, The 2021 reboot of HBO's Gossip Girl, and AMC's original series, Dispatches From Elsewhere, created by and starring Jason Segel

 

​Under our Cosplay Division, your custom piece will be virtually indistinguishable from those we create for our Hollywood productions, yet at less than a fraction of the price through our studio's exclusive partnership program offered by no one else.

But what is the HERO HAIR difference? The videos below, featuring our work in both our Motion Picture & Television Division, AND our Cosplay Division, from completely scratch-built custom pieces under those two separate departments to our exclusive *Custom Remastering™ of preexisting unsuccessful works given to us for improvement, will demonstrate how HERO HAIR is unlike any other custom wig studio on Earth. But this is just a sample of what makes us entirely different from anything the Cosplayer has experienced before, and we invite you to explore the rest of our website to learn more.

(*HERO HAIR's custom Corrective Remastering™ services are available only for our motion picture & television production clients. We do not remaster preexisting cosplay wigs from other wig makers, and we thank you for your understanding.)

VIDEO 02: THE HERO-Hairline    
TM 

Avoiding the "uncanny valley," our exclusive HERO-Hairlines™ are screen-accurate, and true-to-life to the original actor/character, or source-reference, hyper-realistic as close as six inches to the naked eye. 

Of the countless details that set HERO HAIR apart from any other custom wig studio in the motion picture & television, and cosplay industries, our exclusive HERO-Hairline™ is the crowning jewel and for what we are most renowned.

 

The HERO-Hairline™ is the most hyper-realistic, faithfully accurate, naturally human-in-appearance hairline physically (and visually) possible with today's wig technology; much of the theory of which our studio has pioneered, in, first the cosplay industry, and shortly after that, for our numerous projects in film & TV. Find out how HERO HAIR avoids the dreaded uncanny valley with our screen-accurate, real-to-life hairlines that hold up to as close as six inches to the naked eye, featuring extreme close-up quality under even the most discerning HD camera lenses.

VIDEO 04: Client Virtual "Crowning"After Delivery Of Their Custom Wig

95% of our clients have been trained after the sale virtually, since 2015, to apply & maintain their custom pieces via remote video between our studio's annual FREE REFRESH, RESET & RESTYLING™ services.

HERO HAIR has successfully trained our worldwide clients to become masters of their own illusions (with a little professional wig-crew assist from us) virtually for nearly 8 years, well before the pandemic which made the practice of remote video meetings a part of life. Our studio, however, has also, whenever possible, provided exclusive, in-person client training and crewing as their own personal, professional on-site team, as we traveled to Comic Cons across the United States for our custom wig booth exhibitions in tandem with their appearances, and even to our client's homes and hotels to provide the whole movie star experience!

Please reach out to HERO HAIR via the INQUIRIES page to ask about the possibility of the HERO HAIR team *crewing your event in-person, where we apply your custom pieces for your conventions, photoshoots or in-cosplay appearances, or visiting our studio in Chicago, IL for your first crowning (application) and training session upon completion of your commission.

(*In-person client crewing schedule and locality-dependent.)

VIDEO 06: How HERO HAIR Delivers Your Custom Piece

If you've ever commissioned a custom wig, you've never received it like this. With HERO HAIR, your custom piece is delivered to you the same way we professionally transport to set in the feature film and television industry. 

HERO HAIR goes to great pains to provide the client with the full movie-star (REEL) experience. That experience doesn't end when we professionally pack up your custom wig (or facial hair) application and send it out of the studio for final delivery to your door. In this demonstration, we show you the HERO HAIR difference of how you'll receive your custom piece...and, how you won't with anyone else.
