Dignity Wigs is run by long term friends Beverley Keay and Karen McGhee.
Karen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Consequently, she needed to go wig shopping and was horrified at the level of service she received. She visited a number of salons on the advice of her breast cancer nurse, but discovered that they were all equally poor. The service was impersonal, rude, totally lacking in privacy (indeed most of them were on busy high streets with people looking through the window) and generally showed a lack of understanding of what she was going through at the time. She wasn't looking for sympathy, she just wanted to retain her dignity (hence our name)!
As a result, she vowed to start a wig service once her treatment had finished, so that other people wouldn't need to suffer the same upsetting experience that she had.
Beverley is a hairdresser with over 20 year’s experience. She owns her own hair salon and has helped many customers suffering from hair loss over the years. She has styled numerous wigs (including Karen's) and has an excellent reputation in the area.
Together, we believe that we make a great team!
Why are we different?
We understand that you may be going through a very difficult and stressful period of your life and we are able to offer a discrete and sympathetic service because we understand what you are going through. We take time to discuss your individual situation and will help you to select the wig or accessories which best suit your needs. We also understand that the prospect of choosing a wig can be daunting and we encourage you to bring along a friend or partner for moral support.
Our salon is light, airy and sunny and offers wonderful views across the local countryside. Importantly, it also offers total privacy.
We aim to make your visit to the salon a stress free experience and in order to ensure you are given the attention you deserve; we arrange all our consultations by appointment only.
