Freedom Wigs Ltd (formerly Barrington Studios) was previously owned and operated by Murray and Averill Barrington. With over 25 years experience in the wig-making business, their expertise and innovation were second to none.
Located in Dunedin, New Zealand, Freedom Wigs comprises a team of over 45 people. The production staff are each specialists in their field of the manufacturing process, be it hair grading, blending, implantation or mould making. All staff are dedicated to quality, customer service and ongoing product development.
Freedom Wigs is always building on its network of dealer representatives (the majority of whom are delighted customers turned agents) to help ensure its prosthetic wigs are available throughout the world.
The business began back in 1977 when Murray made men's toupees in a spare room at home. Eleven years later he began creating full cap prosthetic hairpieces for women and men with alopecia areata, totalis, universalis and androgenic. Wanting to give customers the benefit of vacuum cap security without the use of tapes or adhesives, Murray and Averill oversaw extensive research and development, resulting in Freedom Hair's permeable silicone caps. Since then, hundreds of men and women throughout the world have discovered new-found confidence and freedom.
