Custom Wig Company
Louisville, KY
Owner: Heather Fleming

In 2007, Custom Wig Company owner Heather Fleming was working as a Wig Designer at a major regional theatre. She regularly found herself receiving requests for custom-made wigs and facial hair from members of the reenactment community as well as cosplayers, interpreters, impersonators and eventually, Santa.

This demand for bespoke wigs and facial hair grew and Custom Wig Company was officially born in 2010. The company’s mission is to provide high quality wigs, beards, toupees and hairpieces to individuals and companies who’s hair needs cannot be met with off-the rack, machine-made wigs.

What began as a one-person operation in a spare bedroom has grown into a company of wig construction specialists located in the historic Beechmont neighborhood of Louisville, KY.  We are so pleased to be able to deliver the very best wigs and hairgoods to our neighbors down the street as well as rock stars in Sweden and Santas in Texas.

Gary and the crew travel to Atlanta, GA to talk to Luke who started Sack Daddy's, a new seafood restaurant concept based off a family recipe. Then they swing by Louisville, KY to talk to Heather who created Custom Wig Company, a business that makes handmade wigs for customers all over the world.
