Best personalized wig consultation and haircut in the coolest salon in town – My wife had to look for a wig due to expected hair loss from a chemotherapy treatment. We called around town to find the right place for her to get a haircut to preserve her hair for donation to a child's wig, and to find a wig from her. We called a number of places, including Jeffrey's salon which was recommended to us by a young cancer survivor's organization. Jeffrey was very knowledgeable and friendly over the phone, so we decided to book an appointment with him.
When you step into the salon, you know that you are in a place whose owner has a special aesthetic sense. Within a few minutes we both knew that we had made the right choice. Jeffrey himself is such a warm and open person and he put us right away at ease. Of course, you don't go to a salon for therapy. He knew exactly how to cut the hair so as to obtain it in a form usable for making a wig, and still was able to deliver a fantastic short cut for her, for the period before her hair will really starts to drop. We were aiming for a buzz cut, but he recommended that we do it in stages, which turned out to be absolutely the right way to do it. He has worked with cancer patients before, and was a wealth of information about the whole process.
Then we moved to the wig selection part. We had already spoken on the phone, and he had preselected some wigs. We looked at the different options in his sunny salon over natural light, and were able to pick a piece that was almost identical to my wife's natural hair. He then proceeded to cut the piece and create a result that was amazingly natural, and indistinguishable from natural hair (to my untrained eyes)
What had started as a very stressful day, ended up being as pleasant as it could have been given the circumstances. I can't imagine a better place for us to have been, nor a better person to have helped us than Jeffrey. We were very lucky, and hope that others can benefit as well.
