For this week’s #FinditinExeter we chatted with Julie and Heidi from Natural Image, Exeter’s wig studio that now calls John Lewis it’s home, to find out all about the special and important service they provide.
Natural Image, which began more than 40 years ago, specialises in beautiful ladies, men’s and children’s wigs and hairpieces for hair loss, alopecia, transgender clients and fashion. with people coming to them both through the NHS and independently.
Natural Image and its team of three; Julie, Heidi and Maria, moved to their new studio in John Lewis in October 2019 after formerly being based in House of Fraser. Alongside helping patients from Exeter, Torbay and North Devon Hospitals, the wig studio is for everyone, with many clients opting for a wig or hairpiece if they aren’t happy with their natural hair style or simply want something a bit different.
The empathetic team have extensive experience with wigs and hairpieces and understand that undergoing hair loss can be an emotional journey. Julie, Heidi and Maria guide clients through this difficult time, offering impartial advice on choosing the best wig or head cover solution for them. The three wig consultants are also qualified hairdressers, so truly do understand hair, and restyle and cut the wigs to suit the client.
Natural Image has over 400 wigs of varying lengths, styles and colours for clients to try until they find the perfect one. Each wig is light, comfortable and realistic so no one will know you’re wearing one unless you tell them – leaving clients feeling and looking confident.
An appointment at Natural Image will take around an hour in the relaxing studio, which is tucked out the way in John Lewis. Only one client is booked into the studio at a time for ultimate privacy, but friends and family are more than welcome to join.
Natural Image is open Monday – Saturday, 9am – 5.30pm, with extended opening hours on a Thursday till 8pm.
If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment with Natural Image, please call 01392 270020.
