Helping all cancer patients currently under treatment searching for a head covering.
What type of Wigs do you enjoy making? I enjoy making wigs for cancer patients the most because of the reaction I see on their face after placing their wig on for the first time. Every wig I help create only inspires me to do more, learn more prefect my work.
WHAT WIGS DO YOU ENJOY MAKING THE LEASE?
Ventilating any wig. I am not a fan, I will get the job done but I rarely take on those orders no matter how much the client is willing to pay.
WHY DID YOU WANT TO BECOME A WIG MAKER?
I saw the need for real wigs in my community. Many women want to protect their hair from damage and they turn to a wig. On their search the find wigs that look shiny, don’t fit, and made from blended hair not 100% human hair.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HAIR DO OF ALL TIME?
I can’t say that I have one but I love curly hair, so any curly hair do.
WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY HAIR ICON?
I can’t say that I have one. I do admire others in the industry.
