Annabelle's Wigs started out of a dream to work for myself and be my own boss.  I am lucky to come from a family where everybody has or had their own businesses, the fact that my mum and dad built their business from nothing gave me the confidence to try it for myself.

It was scary starting my own business, having all these ideas which you think will work, but taking them out of your mind and into reality is a huge step.  I used to work in London for a Law Firm and I spent my hour long commute fantasising about what my business could be, but when you have lived it in your head for so long, you don’t know if the reality will live up to it And there is always the thought that you might fail. Which was something I desperately did not want to happen. Having my daughter definitely helped, I wanted to make a good life for her, and I wanted her to grow up to be proud of her strong mum who made some her dreams into a reality.

We started out selling just on Ebay and I remember being incredibly excited when the first few orders came in and packing them up when my baby daughter was having her naps.  For the first two years of Annabelle's Wigs I was still working part time in London just to make sure we had regular money coming in.

After two years the business had gotten so big my husband and I could employ other people to help. Over the years as the business has continued to grow we started designing all our own collections and now have a dedicated team who are always looking to what will be on-trend for the next year.  

We have been so lucky to work with some amazing people and had some lovely celebrities wear our hair,  Pixie Lott, Kelly Osborne, Katie Price, The Saturdays, Katie Piper, the girls from TOWIE, The Valleys and Geordie Shore, Nicola McKean and Danielle Westbrook to name a few.   
 

"I have worked alongside Annabelle's Wigs for over 3 years, they are the only wig company I work alongside with was I adore how great the product range is and how amazing the team are! I have called up before for a photoshoot and they have sent the next morning... Great company, great range and amazing products."
