Since 1917, Joseph Fleischer had been making the best hand-made, custom-fitted wigs and hairpieces for women. At the same time, The Louis Feder Company also enjoyed a well-deserved reputation for excellence in wigs and hairpieces for men. In the 1950s our two outstanding New York companies merged into one, creating a single extraordinary resource specializing in custom wigs and hand-made hair pieces for men and women.
The Joseph Fleischer/Louis Feder names are known worldwide for excellence in wigs and hairpieces. We’re extraordinarily proud of the fact that our custom wigs and hairpieces today conform to the most rigorous standards, exactly as we established them over 90 years ago.
The Secret to Our Success
It is simple: Clients come to us because they know that our hairpieces will improve their appearance. Over the years, those clients have included John Wayne, Tony Bennett, David Letterman and Frank Sinatra.
Customer Service As Custom As Our Wigs
There’s nothing “off-the-rack” about your experience at Joseph Fleischer. Every head is different, so we never use a “one size fits all” approach. We don’t deal in pre-made, machine-made, ready-to-wear imports.
Nor do we leave anything to chance or circumstance. For the very best results, our process is personalized in every way to your most specific, individual needs and desires.
What You Can Expect From Us
It begins with an extensive consultation, where you and a Joseph Fleischer expert determine precisely what you want from a hairpiece. Then we give you a comprehensive customized fitting, including precise measurements for a lace hair foundation made exclusively for you.
That personalized beginning sets the stage for your entire Joseph Fleischer experience. Together, we cover issues of hairstyle, texture and color. Using your real hair – or photographs you provide – we work to create a hair blend that captures all of the different colors and shades of hair on every part of your head.
Custom Wigs & Hairpieces Perfect Every Time
Every Joseph Fleischer hairpiece is custom-made, entirely by hand, right on premise at our New York facility. We use only the finest quality European hair or a blend of human hair and highest quality synthetic fiber. The process is professional and painstaking. We literally affix one hair at a time to the foundation, so that it appears to be growing directly from your scalp.
After more than 90 years of experience, we know that the end result is well worth this effort. And we promise to make sure you feel the same way.
