“My experience at A Hair Boutique could not have been better. I went there just after starting chemo. Toya was wonderful, she made me feel so good. She made me feel so comfortable. I purchased 3 wigs and felt no pressure. I have recommended her to everyone. She is a Christian and is able to demonstrate that in her every day intervention with clients. I now consider her a friend!!” -Linda S. (wife, mother, grandmother, survivor)
"At the age of 6 I started losing my hair to alopecia and it was definitely not an easy transition for me. By 2nd grade, I was wearing a wig everyday and trying to hide my baldness from my classmates. From then on, I was always very self-conscious about having alopecia. I didn't want to sleep over my friends houses and I made my mom get me out of swim class, so I wouldn't have to take off my wig and wear a swim cap in front of all of my classmates. I wore a wig every single day of my life through high school and my first few years of college as well. A few years ago, I decided that I was done with wigs and that I didn't want to keep living my life hiding who I really was. I wanted to be free and comfortable in my own skin and as soon as I decided that, it became my truth. I became so much more confident and proud of who I was the moment I decided to not hide anymore. I started wearing scarves everyday and I felt so much more beautiful being my true self. I believe our differences are what make us special and we are beautiful just how we are, there's no need for any of us to feel like we're not good enough and that we have to hide who we are. Until recently, I hadn't even thought of getting another wig, but I figured that it would be fun now that I don't feel the pressure to wear one everyday. I found A Hair Boutique Shadyside simply just for searching for wig shops and I'm so glad that I did. The woman who helped me was named Shari and she was just about the most delightful person I've ever met. She was so patient and kind and she let me try on a ton of different styles. At the end of the day, I walked out with two wigs that were extremely reasonably priced and I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone in that market for a hairpiece, I promise, you won't regret it. I can't wait to go back to buy my next piece!" -Sarah U. (Pittsburgh Resident)
"I came to A Hair Boutique because I have Lupus and was losing most of my hair. I started losing my hair in February of 2015. Lupus is an auto-immune disease. Due to this I wasn't feeling as confident as I normally would. With Lupus certain things take more energy than others. Showering and getting ready was one of those things. Having a wig makes things so much easier and allows me to conserve energy. Now that I have a wig I have a new confidence. No one even knows that I have a wig. The vibrant color is exactly the color I use to have before losing mine. The style is not only curly like mine use to be but it's a little more curly like how I always wanted my hair! I am very lucky to have found A Hair Boutique”. - Gabby S. (student)
“Great place, Chris was very knowledgeable and kind.” -Mary J. R.
“Toya , from A Hair Boutique, was great. She was friendly, compassionate, patient, and honest. I will soon need a wig, as a result of chemotherapy. She had me send her a picture of myself before my appointment. When I got there, she had about 15 wigs that somewhat suited me. I am hard to please, I must admit. She went through each and every one with me, with positives and negatives about all. We both agreed on one, that was the closest to my hair , both style and color. I would recommend her shop to anyone needing a wig.”

"Toya, I've been smiling since I left this afternoon! I really love this wig and my husband does, too! I appreciate the time you spent with me and the education you gave me about wigs! I can really see the difference now between this one and the two I ordered online. And I also enjoyed getting to know you and hearing your journey - relationships are important to me, especially when I'm going to work with someone over time." - J.A
