Top spots to buy good wigs in Toronto

A good wig is hard to find. We’re completely over the cheap stuff you can buy at any old costume house and are more interested in personalized, styled or high-quality numbers that will flip, toss and fly (not off your head mid-wig reveal) when you need them to. It’s an investment, but a good piece of hair will make you feel more confident, sexy and fishy.

Here are the best places to find good wigs in Toronto.


Cloré Beauty

Address - 1126 Bloor St W
Cloré is a legend in the Toronto hair community. It’s definitely the go-to spot for lace fronts, quality hair, fits, and styles, directly off the shelf or the mannequin head. There are locations around the city, but the Dufferin and Bloor store is easiest for us downtown queers. In addition to their full wig selection, they have a great half-wig line if you just need to give your existing wig or locks, a bump up. The staff can also judge your head in a hot minute and help you find the right fit for your cap and face.

4 Your Hair Extensions

Address - 1368 Queen St W
The self-proclaimed “top retailer for Virgin Indian Remy Cuticle Human Hair Extensions” in Canada, this Parkdale hair house also has a pretty great and very colourful selection of high-quality wigs. They are a full-service salon specializing in hair extensions, so you’ll be walking into a hair studio, not just a wig shop. But if you go in with a style, mood or idea of what you want to achieve, they’re happy to help.

Ragga Hair Studio

Address - 135 Dundas St E
This East end spot has a steady mix of real and Synthetic wigs and is also a hair studio. They are experts, so walk in here with a goal or idea and you’ll get the help you need. By this we mean, don’t walk in here like a cackling pack of hyenas, trying on hair and joking around like you’re 12. While this shop doesn’t have an amazing reputation for their service, they do have a wide range of hair from Sunday church Auntie, to neon Blue nightclub Nikki.

Mikah Styles

Address - N/A - Contact directly for hair
If the bigger the hair, the closer to God… Mikah Styles is the high priestess of Toronto wig makers. He’s created wigs for pretty much every drag queen in the city at some point. He creates his own beauties, but also brilliantly reinvents older wigs that you hate or that have worn out over time. What was once upon a time a Katy Perry candy topper can easily become a Dolly Parton head job made from three combined wigs. The best thing to do is contact him via email ([email protected]), but first check out his Facebook or Instagram for some examples. Give yourself a lot of time to make sure Mikah can work his magic in time.

Ashlee Warchild

Address - N/A - Contact directly for hair
Sometimes a wig shop won’t cut it for what you have in mind. That’s where the wonderful Ashlee Warchild comes in handy. She’s a stunning drag queen in her own right, and a sexy AF burlesque performer to boot. On top of all this however, she’s got skills with locks. DM her at her wiggy Instagram for wig customizations, custom styling orders, ideas, questions or even advice. She’s a queen for the people. Ashlee has her own style, so if you’re looking for super unique hair, get out from under the hairdryer and holler!

Amanda Prior

Address - N/A - Contact directly for hair
Member of Toronto’s House of Kiki House of Siriano, Amanda is a relatively new queen on the scene, but don’t tell her magical hands that. She also does custom creations and consultations with queens, queers and other creatures. She’s a wig stylist who loves volume and colour, someone who’s not afraid of a crimper and a high pony. She also has a show on YouTube called Amanda’s Couch, giving you all that content, honey!
