I feel much more confident wearing my hairpiece! When I would pass a mirror, I would intentionally not look at myself. Now I find myself sneaking a look at my reflection and am happy with what I see. The most satisfying response is when my husband tells me how nice I look. - Claudia

A visit with Violet is a wonderful experience.

You experience understanding; you experience compassion. You leave with joy in your heart and a beautiful wig on your head! Violet helped me be myself; when cancer tried to take me away.  - Maridee S.


I have had baby fine hair all my life. I never thought of a hair piece as a solution until another stylist mentioned it to me. I made an appointment with Violet and I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the results!  Before, I had to put so many products in my hair to get it to behave and was always searching for the next new item that might make the difference! Convenience and confidence….it doesn’t get any better! I wish I had done it years earlier!   -- Paula

I met Violet when I was diagnosed with alopecia in the fourth grade and I have been wearing hairpieces from the Centre for Hair and Wellness ever since. When I was younger, I never wanted to wear wigs because it wasn’t my hair. However, since I met Violet and she showed me all her wonderful hairpieces, my perspective has changed completely. After wearing my first piece, I wasn’t stared at, people didn’t ask me if I was a boy, and I finally felt comfortable being myself, and not someone everyone thought was sick.


Today, I get abundant compliments on my wig, and very often people say they would never have known it wasn’t my real hair. I am able to do everything in it, including swimming, sports, and even flips without having to worry about it falling off!


I truly believe God sent Violet into my life for a purpose. She has been a wonderful mentor and a caring and understanding role model for me to look up to for all these years. Saying that, she has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life, and I know she can do the same for you! - Paige

Monday morning, December 29, 2014, I decided to make a change in my life. I no longer wanted to look the way I did. I had some appointments in the morning, and when done, I was going to call your salon. Little did I know how much you would change my life and how I felt about myself. For the last couple of years, my hair has been thinning rapidly. I’ve been avoiding photos and social situations for years because of it, and just felt old and frumpy.


I was very surprised that you were open on a Monday as most salons are not, and that I was a walk-in and you made room for me later in the day was a bonus, and for that I am grateful. Your salon is very warm and welcoming and made me feel comfortable, so there was no backing out now!


Before this whole process, I had already decided if and when the time came for me to do this, I would come to you as you are the best at what you do for people with hair loss and that was the best decision. You gave me back my confidence.


Everyone was amazed at how real it looked and felt, and how great I looked (10 years) younger. So much fun to see other people’s reactions and just that alone is worth it!

So now I am starting my next wig fund immediately as I am excited about all the options in front of me. So for all the women out there like me, when one door closes another opens. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.


Once again, thank you so much for changing my life. I am so glad you are there to help us all who have had hair loss. You will be seeing me in the future. - Sandy C.

After my breast cancer diagnosis, I was referred to Centre for Hair and Wellness by several people. I was treated with such wonderful care at a time when I really needed it. Violet was so compassionate and understanding. Losing your hair, for any reason, is traumatic, but my new look is better than I thought it could be and no one knows it is a wig! - Coralie
