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
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
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
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.
