I feel both lucky and blessed to have met AnneMichelle. My mission was to cope with my cancer and still have my quality of life. I wanted a wig that looked like my hair and matched me perfectly. AnneMichelle had this amazing wig and she made it fit perfectly! With her expertise, I now have hair that looks totally realistic and I look like ME! Every visit with AnneMichelle, I get some “me” time and I feel beautiful…during this difficult time. You just have to meet her to know.

I’ve been wearing a hairpiece to cover scars after surgery fifty years ago. As you might imagine, I’ve seen many hair replacement salons. Anne Michelle Hair ranks at the top. She’s an artist with scissors. She’s designed a few pieces (“systems”) for me. This was tricky due to my grey and brown natural hair, but she ‘nailed’ the color and texture matches perfectly. When the pieces started to show their age, she has been able to recondition them like new. The privacy of her salon is reassuring and even comforting. Pleasant conversation tops it off. Highly recommended!

AnneMichelle saved my life… I bought a wig from another hair salon specializing in wigs…my head is quite small…the stylist never measured my head but ordered a wig for me… it was comical… it was HUGE with so much hair. Back I went and she ordered another wig for me, still not measuring my head… Time was running out and I was losing my hair at a rapid pace. The wig was delayed coming in, but when it did, I was in great need. The wig was still too big. She altered it, removing three webbings, BUT it still never fit well. I was beside myself… Then I saw AnneMichelle and she was at my service. She set up an appointment right away during which she MEASURED MY HEAD. Then she altered the wig not only the circumference but the length… AND styled it…HOORAY! I finally looked like me! I am still wearing it 6 months later and NO ONE knows it is a wig and everyone absolutely loves my new hairdo! THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE! I got through chemo knowing I looked as best as I could under the circumstances.

My hair was thinning rapidly and I needed help. AnneMichelle assured me she could help. Together, we explored several solutions in order to find one that suited me best. I now have a beautiful wig that no one can believe is a wig. From the start, I received comments such as “you look 20 years younger,” and “great hair.” The wig has boosted my morale and my appearance. The experience of working with AnneMichelle was a total pleasure.

The year I turned 70 my hair began to fall out for no apparent reason. Wow! – was I the lucky one to have already been AnneMichelle’s client! She alerted me to my hair loss and knew exactly what to do – immediately gave me a scalp assessment and treatment and prescribed a comprehensive hair loss support regimen that I followed very carefully for the next 6 – 9 months. I also, got a wig from her that nobody even knew I was wearing – it looked so much like my hair. She gave me scalp treatments every month and kept a good watch on my scalp – monitoring its health and watching to see if new hair was beginning to come in. As time went on – new hair growth appeared – short and curly at first, and not a familiar texture, but it was my hair!! After about 9 months, my hair was beginning to look and feel like it did prior to this whole event. Now my hair is full and healthy again! I am so happy and fortunate to be her client.
