After relocating to London, Ali extended his expertise by specializing in wig making. The love for his craft inspired him to start AP Wigs, a platform through which he could provide his clients handmade quality units made out of the finest Peruvian hair. The mission of AP Wigs is to provide vibrant colors, undetectable hairlines and intricately crafted weight distribution, creating units with a natural feel and uninhibited movement.
An important part of AP Wigs’ purpose is to reinforce sisterhood. That is why AP Wigs donates every fifth unit to charity. This way, customers purchasing units contribute in making a difference and support fellow sisters experiencing medical hair loss.
