Editorial review from Citysearch 11/19/2012

Karen is absolutely magical! She knows exactly what will make you look and feel spectacular. When I showed Karen a picture of myself, she immediately showed me the perfect wig. She is so kind and makes a very difficult decision actually feel easy. I cannot say enough about her and her services. Just one day after getting my wig, while standing in line at the movies, someone asked me what salon I used because my hair was so gorgeous. I think that says it all! more

Making a 1st time quick stop to Karen's Wigs. 4/20/2011

My daughter and I went to New York for a few days. Having alopecia, I am always looking for new wig shops. We just happened to be staying somewhat close to Karen's Wigs in NYC. We decided to walk and check her place out, not thinking I would come out placing an order. Karen immediately helped me, even when I should have made an appointment. She seem to really have the instinct as to what style would look good on me. The wig I ordered was the color of my natural hair with some gold tones through it. When I got home, I wondered whether or not I made a hasty decision. My wig just arrived a few days later. It was absolutely fantastic, she picked out the right tone of brunette with the right amount of highlights. She also did not hesitate to trim the wig I was wearing to make it look a lot better. A big thank you to Karen. Susan B. from Ohio more

Karen's Wigs - caring and comforting 1/17/2011

Karen, again, thank you for making this pretty stressful experience, of loosing my hair and needing a wig, such a comforting one. It was a pleasure coming to your salon - you provide an intimate and caring environment that takes the sting out of this sad situation. In addition to immediately offering me a suitable wig that you cut beautifully to replace my fading hair, I was very grateful for your offer to shave off my hair when I was ready. Your care, attention and support made the moment I had dreaded much easier than anticipated. more

great service and great wigs 11/2/2009

Karen was a great help to me through my hair loss due to chemotherapy. She helped me select a great wig, and shaved my head when it was time. Karen also trimmed the wig to suit me, and my husband says it looks better than my real hair ! I strongly recommend Karen's Wigs for the personal touch. Pros: private room and personal service more

Wig Whisperer! 3/2/2009

Karen's Wigs is a very special place. we think Karen is the Wig Whisperer. i went w/a friend who was going thru chemo.\r (btw, she is doing v.well, thank-u) we made a list of places to go but this was the only place we needed to go. \r Karen'sWigs. its just a little suite on Broadway. very simple office suite. wigs galore. \r the first wig Karen had my friend try on ... we got the goose pimples (!) ... its like when you're with a friend and she picks out The Perfect Wedding Dress. same deal here. \r it was The Perfect Hair. Beautiful beautiful hair. \r \r my bud tried on a few more, just bc were girls, and you have to try a few on. After my friend purchased it, \r Karen then cut and styled the wig, and schuuzed (how do you spell?). fascinating to watch. \r \r and my friend went back to have her hair shaved by Karen.\r everybody told my bud save your $25 bucks. but Karen did the most beautiful cut. she brought it down to about 1 1/2"" then, and 1"" then 1/2"". Karen was so lovely about it. not creepy or 'meaningful', it was just the right place to be.\r it was very lovely, if that's possible. (it was.) \r \r a plus: good neighborhood, so once you get a pretty wig you can treat yourself to a nice lunch at some schwank restaurant nearby. Pros: Karen is excellent! Cons: its an office suite, it's not like going to Elizabeth Arden Red Door. but if she was selling them off a truck i'd go where ever Karen is. more

Strongly recommended. 1/11/2009

Karen gave me very sensitive and capable service at a difficult time. She explains both the products and process thoroughly and clearly. The end result was very satisfactory: even people who know I am undergoing chemotherapy couldn't believe I was wearing a wig when they saw me for the first time with it on. more

Great Service 9/30/2008

As a cancer patient struggling with the loss of my hair, Karen showed great compassion in addressing my concerns and needs. She was very thorough in explaining the many different types of wigs, their care and took time to style my ""new hair"". Losing my hair was hard, but Karen helped me begin the process by helping me pick out a perfect wig to make the transition unnoticeable to others. more
