We provide the finest quality Human and Synthetic wigs with one of the largest selections in the Chicagoland area. We range from a short length, machine-made, synthetic wig for $300 - to a hand-tied, all-one-length, European hair with a lace front for $3000. We are one of the few providers of fully hand-tied synthetic wigs.

The Process

Are you going through chemotherapy or is your hair loss natural or from other medical reasons? If you are going through chemotherapy, then finding the right hair alternative becomes a more time sensitive issue

Once you have started your treatment, you have between 17 - 21 days before your hair begins to release. That is why seeing you is so important. It is optimal for us to set the initial consult before you begin losing your hair. This gives us a chance to see your length, color, density and best determine which product will best fit you. Some patients find us after their hair has released, we then work with photos for color and length and your determination on the thickness or density.

When your hair begins to release, or slightly before, we can make an appointment to take your hair down. (This all depends on how you are feeling) We will then start the fitting, sizing, cutting and styling of your new hair. We generally book about 3 hours for this process.

At the time of completion, you will receive a complete list of instructions and reference sheets for all that we have just gone over. This will include: shampooing, conditioning, styling (do's & don'ts), and maintenance

Remember, you can call us at anytime with questions or if you are in need of help with your hair.

Refund Policy

We begin with a complimentary 2 to 3 hour initial consultation that provides our customers with a clear understanding of J. Crager Alternatives products and services. Part of this consultation covers our refund policy.

Non-Customized Wigs: A full refund is offered on wigs that have not been cut, colored, resized or altered in any way.

Customized or Altered Wigs:We have a no return/no refund policy on custom wig orders, or any wig that has been cut, colored, resized or altered in any fashion. J. Crager Alternatives works with each customer to ensure the wig is cut, sized, and colored to their satisfaction. Part of the styling and sizing process includes in-depth product care and maintenance education. Without proper care and maintenance, the quality of any product will be short lived.

At J. Crager Alternatives, our goal is to ensure you are fully informed and your transition is as easy and comfortable as possible.
