Herr Bühler (who speaks very good English) offers an attentive service tailored to your needs at his specialist wig shop in Gundeli, just behind the SBB station. Visit while you still have your hair, so he can see both the colour and how you like to style it. He will then get in a selection of wigs for you to try. There’s also a package you can buy which includes one follow-up visit 6 weeks later when he will shampoo and re-style it for you. He can also advise on reimbursement from the IV (Invaliden Versicherung) and take care of all the necessary paperwork.
