Editorial review from Citysearch 7/17/2013

Andrew DeSimone's shop on Lexington Avenue provides the perfect environment for purchasing a hair prostheses. There are small rooms where you can try on wigs in private with the help of a knowledgable stylist. Andrew and his team will give you the pros and cons of synthetic and human hair wigs and can order the selected wig in your own hair color. The wig will then be custom cut to fit your face so no one will be able to tell you are wearing a wig. \r \r I was able to get fully reimbursed for mine because my insurance carrier, BCBS doesn't have any vendors in my area, so any vendor is handled as an in network vendor if you are persistent. Just get a prescription from your doctor and make sure it says it is for a hair prostheses for hair loss due to cancer and not a wig. more

I cannot say enough about Andrew 6/7/2012

I cannot say enough about Andrew DiSimone. helped me select a lovely and flattering wig and styled it so it suited me really well. He is a blessing in the midst of a very traumatic experience and one leaves with a much lighter heart than before. Andrew gives his time, his heart to what he does. He is generous in spirit and in heart. more

The VERY Best!!! 12/7/2011

Andrew and his staff (especially Nan and Trinita) made what we thought would be an awful experience into a fun and compassionate one... more

Andrew was the best thing about my day! 9/30/2011

You will leave feeling that you've been given a gift in the midst of cancer treatment when you see Andrew. He is a giving person who wants to make his clients happy and he does this through humor, understanding and compassion. BTW, he's very knowledgeable about his wigs as well and the selection is deceivingly large. Highly recommended for all of NYC! more

Thank You Andrew Our True Angel!!! 9/7/2011

Andrew is a Gem! 7/24/2011

My sister has cancer, that's terrible enough but add to it that our older sister just died in November of cancer and now you have become one of those examples that people use to show that their lives aren't so bad. more

Andrew DiSimone shares skills and heart 7/18/2011

I needed help with hair loss for medical reasons. I wanted a wig that worked for me and looked natural, but I could not affortd to pay a lot for hair that I might need for only a few months. Andrew and his assistant gave me two consultations, searching for a good solution. Finally, Andrtew looked at an old hairpiece of mine and told me that he could make it look better. And he did. I never felt pressured to buy something I could not afford, and I walked out feeling so much better about myself. The experience was remarkable. It was proof of what others have said about Andrew--that he truly cares about his clients, and he brings his best personal and professional skills to the task of adding dignity when it is needed. Thank you! more

Wigs for Cancer Patients NYC 7/4/2011

I live two hours by train and subway from Andrew at Wigs for Cancer Patients NYC, and I would advise anyone in the area who is about to experience chemo hair loss to go directly to him. He is a lovely, compassionate person who devotes himself completely to each of his clients and he has the knowledge and experience that enable him to provide each client with the perfect wig. My plan, once I learned I needed chemo, was to find a wig, start wearing it when I had to, and never tell anyone what was going on. Incredibly enough, the plan worked: when my colleagues at work noticed a difference they said how much they liked the new cut and how great my hair looked, and as far as I know no-one has guessed. I didn more

Thank you Andrew! 5/11/2011

Andrew is a great person. Not only did he help my mom pick out a fabulous wig, he comforted her during a very sensitive time in her life. She was very depressed during her chemotherapy, and felt even worse after she started to lose her hair; Andrew made her feel like herself again, and gave her her confidence back! The wig he styled for her was the perfect fit. He really took his time out to get to know her, and uplift her spirits. He is a genuine person and really loves what he does! more

THE PERFECT EXPERIENCE 5/5/2011

Andrew is one of New York City's great natural resources, but especially for women who are losing their hair due to chemotherapy. He is exactly the right combination of compassionate and sensitive, while still being irrepressibly upbeat and positive. Besides all of this Andrew is a consummately professional hair stylist and is a genius with wigs. He starts by explaining all about the various wigs and their different features, without making all the choices feel overwhelming. He takes the time to get to know you and what you need and desire in a wig and he won't let you leave until you are entirely satisfied. I'm thrilled with my beautiful new wig....it looks like real hair and, if I'm being completely honest, is actually nicer than my real hair was! Andrew, you are a treasure. more

Look No Further! Go to Andrew!!! You won't be disappointed! 4/27/2011

If you are suffering from hair loss for any reason and need to purchase new hair (a wig) go to Andrew!!! My bestfriend lives in nyc and had hairloss due to chemo treatments. She went to another well known man in nyc, which was not a good experience. I was happy that I was flying in town and could go with her to her next appointment, which was with Andrew. more

A True Blessing, Heart of Gold 4/6/2011

Based on these amazing reviews I found on Citysearch, I took my mom for a consultation with Andrew. He truly is a blessing and helped my mom find the perfect wig! Even if there was not a match right away he was persistent and found it the very next day! She was so grateful for her services and would reccomend others in a heart beat. Thank you ANDREW!!! more

IDEAL chemo wig experience 11/8/2010

ANDREW IS AMAZING! He is a truly wonderful person and talented stylist who is so easy to work with. He has gone out of his way to be helpful and generous, and he really, truly cared about finding a wig for me that I could be happy with. I am undergoing chemo and had difficult hair to find a match for (long, wavy, highlighted). Andrew never gave up ? and found the perfect piece! It?s very important to me to be able to feel good and to look myself, and this wig has made the whole chemo process easier to deal with. I went to many places recommended by Sloan-Kettering, and can tell many horror stories about them! Save yourself the time and problems, and visit Andrew. He will offer you a truly enjoyable experience, and a wig and style that suit your own specific needs. I cannot stress what a generous, personable, delightful man Andrew is. And, on top of that, I couldn?t believe how much the wig that he found and styled looked EXACTLY like my own hair! In a terribly difficult time, made more troubling by impersonal, aggressive wig salespeople, Andrew has been an absolute angel. Thank you!!! more

Andrew 9/9/2009

After being told that I had lymphoma-and that I would have to go through chemo (but don't worry-you won't lose your hair)--well--boy were they wrong!!! Andrew knew exactly what I was looking for--took his time and expertise to transform my ""new"" hair into something I never had--people in the street tell me how great my hair is!!!! My doorman wants to marry me!! Pros: Expertise and Compassion Cons: ZERO more

Compassionate Professionals 6/10/2009

After being diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, I did a fair amount of research on options for treatment induced hair loss. Of the options available, Wigs for Cancer Patients was the best fit for me. Each member of the team at Wigs for Cancer Patients is compassionate and highly skilled ? together, they helped me through the process of creating a wig that best reflected my natural hair. Andrew even cut my existing hair in a short style of my choosing, helping me to prepare myself for impending hair loss. Given the exceptional quality and service on offer, I highly recommend Wigs for Cancer Patients for anyone seeking hair prosthesis. more

My experience with Andrew 5/22/2009

Met Andrew through The American Cancer Society. He gives of his very talented self to make others feel better about themselves. He took a synthetic wig and styled it and layered it until it was beautiful. i can imagine what he can do with natural hair whether wigs or your own hair. I am sold on Andrew. Pros: Extremely talented and compassionate person more

looking for someone special 5/10/2009

Loosing my long and healthy hair was one of the hardest things during my chemo treatment. I had the opportunity to get three wigs, but I couldn't see myself in any of them. A friend of mine told me about Andrew and she personally made an appointment for me to see him. Getting to know Andrew has been a tremendous blessing! He is extremely talented and he is such an inviting person. He made me feel very comfortable and confident the minute I met him. The sweetness and gentleness in his voice would made anyone feel good. Andrew is truly an artist! My wigs look great! They look so natural. People that don't know what I have been through think that it is my own hair. Everyone has been asking me who is the one that did such a great job with my hair ; ) more

Great hair and great guy! 4/6/2009

Buying a wig for the first time can be a very upsetting experienceand that's precisely why Andrew is so very special. He immediately put me at ease and helped me pick out the perfect wig for my face. Pros: Everything more

Excellent service 4/2/2009

I write this review with the highest recommendation. The service was excellent. I spoke to Andrew regarding my mother and the next day he sent a representative to my mother's house for a consultation. more

Best Service and Quality Wigs 3/31/2009

The staff of this salon is very caring, genuine, and helpful. The service was great. Andrew was very caring and sincere. He made sure that the client was satisfied. The fee was more than resonable for the service and the quality of the wig. No unnecessary charges were requested. It is the most trustworthy place. I recommend this place highly. Pros: Best service, trustworthy, and best quality wigs more
