Latest News:

Wilshire Wigs is probably the largest wig and hair goods store in the entire United States. That may seem like a bold statement, but it's the truth. With over 2,000 wigs on display in our showroom and well over 100,000 in stock, we have the largest selection of brands, styles, and colors of wigs and hairpieces anywhere, at deeply discounted prices.

Started in 1967 by Ralph Sampson (spelled differently than the Biblical Samson), Wilshire Wigs & Accessories has steadily expanded, recently moving to our new 10,000 square feet facility in the Los Angeles area. Originally selling exclusively to the beauty trade and to wig shops around the country, Wilshire Wigs eventually expanded into direct sale to the public as well, although the beauty trade still accounts for over half our total sales. Then in 1978, a new division, Silhouette Hair For Men, was added, providing the finest quality hairpieces available, again from all major manufacturers at wholesale prices.

Wilshire Wigs is also a primary supplier of hairgoods to movie studios, supplying wigs and hairgoods to motion pictures such as "Dreamgirls," "Memoirs of a Geisha," "Dukes of Hazzard," "Austin Powers 3: Goldmember," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Forty Year Old Virgin," "Be Cool," "Lords of Dogtown," "Mission Impossible 3," "The Adventures of Johnny Tao," and "The Legend of Zorro." For the film "Titanic" we supplied literally hundreds of wigs.

Television shows we have worked with include "24," "Desperate Housewives," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "My Name Is Earl," "The Gilmore Girls," "Reno 911," "CSI New York," "Boston Legal," E.R.," "Scrubs," "General Hospital," "The Drew Carey Show," "Six Feet Under," "That 70's Show," and many more.

We supply wigs to all kinds of theatrical productions, such as Cirque du Soleil, Disneyland, the Los Angeles Opera, Jim Henson's Creature Shop, and the Academy Awards.

With our staff of stylists and ventilators ("ventilator" is the technical name for someone who sews hair) we can do anything you can imagine with hair. We've made custom wigs for pigs (!), a twenty-foot long "Rapunzel" wig that an actor used to climb the side of a building, high-quality custom-made lace wigs for film, and we do simpler things as well, such as adding hair to hairpieces, general repairs, and re-sizing wigs.

If you are looking for wigs, hair goods, bulk hair, hair add-ons and additions, hair extensions, or really anything to do with hair, then you'll find it here... and at the cheapest prices you'll find anywhere.
