I just wanted to thank you again for your time last week when you helped xxx with her hair and wig. You seem so SPOT ON with how your customers may (or may not) feel and the stages they will go through, it’s a real credit to you. Just as you would expect, we had a “hair loss” moment that same evening, it’s just as you get nearer the dreaded stage, isn’t it?
And who else to express your resentment about it all to, but your parents?
Then she got on with it and was OK! Her birthday outing with her friends that w-end was a godsend in a way, and an unavoidable trigger. They re-assured her by complimenting her on her look, and the same happened this week when she managed to attend an evening do with her company (chemo was kindly postponed). No-one AT ALL cottoned on to her wig, since most of them thought she had glandular fever until she put them right! It did her good, since the day before we had ANOTHER crisis, emergency etc… these things you are not prepared for and have no knowledge of trigger a huge amount of terror.
So anyway, your hard work and kind words to xxxx were not in vain, and I know for sure we could not have had a better helper than you. People like yourself make it all seem so easy, “normal” and bearable, and we are truly grateful to you.
I dare say we shall see you soon with regard to the
second wig, I am prepared for this one getting some good wear before too long! Then we will be in real trouble, won’t we? Ha ha…
You probably don’t remember me but I bought an “April” wig from you last September. I now have about a quarter of an inch of hair growing back so I shall be needing to wear the wig for a bit longer yet! However, I just wanted to let you know how delighted I have been with it. Several people, when they learned of my chemo, said ” I see you haven’t lost your hair, then!”. And in just the last couple of weeks three people independently have said “Your hair looks nice today. Have you just had it done?” What better compliment could there be! I have passed on your name to my hairdresser and to others so I hope you hear from some of them.
Once again, thanks for knowing exactly what would suit me!
I have been rethinking the style of wig I would like and have decided that I would prefer to try some shorter ones. I’ve moved on considerably since my last session with you and am beginning to think that I should probably start to treat this as a positive opportunity to consider a change of image rather than a dreadful negative thing which I have to endure for several months.
firstly – THANKYOU for such a great visit.. you were so impressive and caring – we were both warmed by your touches and attitude. … xxxx hair is just starting to fall out so during this week we’ll get a view of what she wants and then I promise to get back to you.
But the wigs were amazing… so much better than she thought – she was much heartened by the results and your kindness…. thank you so much from me too xxxx
so just a short email to thank you for all your help and support. It is so nice to have somewhere and someone so helpful and understanding. It is normally something I dread doing, but I can honestly say that this time it has not been the ordeal it usually is. I have actually enjoyed choosing and trying all your stock. Your empathy and understanding has also been wonderful. I feel positive for the first time that I
can do and enjoy aspects of my life that have been a real problem since my hair loss.
It’s lovely to hear from you, I’m wearing my wig right now! I love it, and it makes going out much easier, no-one takes a second look. And the ones that do are just thinking what great hair I have! My hair fell out really quickly after my first chemo, and there’s no way I could have coped with finding a wig at a time like that, so I’m glad I had it ready.
I just wanted to share with you how I’ve got on with my wigs as I thought it might be useful for other clients! My hair started falling out 2.5 weeks after my first dose of chemo, so I decided to get it cut really short and to start wearing my wigs as otherwise I’d be walking around covered in the hair I was shedding!
I wore my Allison wig to my husband’s work’s barbecue last weekend (the same day I had my hair cut short) and nobody realised I was wearing a wig. I then took the ultimate test and wore it to my secondary school on Monday and Tuesday this week (I’m just working 2 days). Several members of staff said how nice my hair looked even commenting that it made me look 10 years younger!!! They were all amazed when I told them it was a wig! Then the ultimate challenge – the teenagers – yet again it passed the test, they said how nice it looked and had I had my hair coloured, darkened etc but absolutely no doubt that they all believed it was my real hair. This morning I wore my Drew wig to walk my daughter to school and yet again it was a resounding success with people saying how good I looked and they all wanted one!!!
I just wanted to pass this on as, instead of making me feel awful, losing my hair has made me feel a million dollars!!
Thank you very much for all your help and advice,
It was good to meet with you . You are a lovely approachable lady, who it was fun to chat to.
As you can see I have found your site and I am very impressed by your range of wigs and their value for money. I have already told at least 4 of my tranny friends about you and your business. You deserve to succeed in the tranny community as there is a growing demand which I am sure that someone like you can tap into.
With every good wish for the future Thank you for organising all this, helping people like me (though I needed just a teensy nudge) and sending me to Natalie!
The ladies put me completely atease, i feel so much better in myself!(chemo)
I wore my wig Saturday night, it felt and looked fantastic. Well done you for choosing the style and colour, I love it!

Thank you so much for giving me a day to remember last Friday. When I walked out of your shop, I felt like I was walking on air and my confidence was absolutely sky-high! I spent the rest of the day in town, walking around the shops with almost no worries about being ‘read’. It was lovely browsing through the women’s wear in M&S and Debenhams with nobody paying me any attention at all. I bought some sandwiches in Boots and ate them in the park, something I would never have had the courage to do before. I even popped into xxxxxx for a drink, yet another first!
Later on, I went round to xxxxxx house to show off my new look and she really liked it. When it came to changing back into my male self and going home, it was really hard. This was the longest time ever that I’d spent as Jayne.
It wasn’t just that you found me such a gorgeous wig; you were also so lovely to talk to and put me at ease so quickly that the hour I spent with you was really enjoyable. It was a great start to the day. I almost wish I could afford to buy a new wig every time I go out!
I can’t really thank you enough!
Thank you so much from all of us for so kindly for these lovely wigs for our ‘gig’ at The Rowans Hospice. I am enclosing a further photograph for your collection.( see who wears wigs section)
We think it went well and anyway we enjoyed dressing up and performing. If only we could sing, I think the offers would be pouring in!
Many thanks once again.
I don’t know if you remember me, but I purchased a wig from you a couple of months ago, to help me through my chemotherapy. I firstly wanted to let you know that it has been a great success and I can honestly say I wouldn’t be able to cope without it now. You knew just the one to go for and although it had to be ordered in I’m glad I waited for the right one. Although I was really nervous about it at first, it has given me the confidence to be able to out during my treatment and to maintain a level of normality that is so very important. A number of people I know who don’t know about my illness have commented on how great my hair looks, I haven’t told them the truth!!
With all this in mind I thought I should order a second wig (just in case something happened to the first one). I want to go for one exactly the same as the one I already have.
Went to the trannie weekend at Eastbourne this last weekend and wore it there – should have some photos on the way and will send some to you. Was crowned Miss Transliving, Eastbourne 2009 – it must have been your other wig that won it for me!
Well you wait ages for a bus and then two come along! It’s 10 years since I last won a pageant (or whatever), Miss Blackpool glitter and tinsel I think it was, and I’ve been entering during all that time. But now, wait for it, close on Miss Transliving Eastbourne I’ve gone and won Miss St Audrie’s Bay. And this is the bit that you’ll like – every one is saying that it’s the wig that’s made the difference !!!!!!
Thank you so much for your care and expertise this morning – and experimenting with different colours and styles. I really don’t mind if the hair goes now…in fact, I much prefer my lovely wig to my own hair!
xxxxx loved it immediately and thinks every last hair should stay because he thinks the odd wispiness is natural! The colour match is incredible too – I love it!
It takes true artistry to do what you do – I am very grateful.
Many thanks also for all your help with my wig choice. I am really happy with it and have had lots of compliments, the maintenance is incredibly too!
Once again thank you very much for the personal service, I am absolutely thrilled with the wig.
As promised I enclose some photos of my excursion into the countryside today wearing my lovely new wig.I am so happy with the wig and I want to thank you very much for your excellent service I will certainly be back and I have recommended you to one of my T-girl friends who I am sure will be in touch shortly.
Here are some photos of Abba Generation in Beirut a few weeks ago. Your wigs are great.
Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful service and product this morning.
the level of attention to detail,professionalism and care was so impressive from my perspective as a new customer.
I am delighted sat at home now in my new hair and can’t wait to wear it in december .Thank you for looking into all options for me going forward as I become more dependant on a feminine persona.
I will pop in after your holiday with my partner to look at more options.I think I would benefit from your expertise in styling my new hair especially the fringe.
I just wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and excellent service when I bought my new wig this afternoon.I was very impressed with your range and I really appreciated your help and advice.I have enclosed a hastily taken picture and will mail another in a few days when I’ve had time to ‘glam up’ properly.Once again thanks so much for your help today I will certainly have repeat business in the future.
