Testimonials: I found Barbara’s Hair studio on line. Her personal story , experience and training for selection, cutting and styling wigs was exactly what I required. Her salon is private and peaceful. The minute I walked in Barbara’s voice told me I was in the right place. She immediately put me at ease. I felt so comfortable telling my story to her and any nervousness I had quickly vanished. Barbara’s experience was evident as she picked the wig style and cut that was perfect for me. I felt such confidence about myself and how I looked when I left that I know I will be back in the future. Thank you Barbara. Tiffany K.

After dealing with androgenic alopecia and breast cancer treatment, my hair loss became very noticeable. I purchased a wig topper from a local wig salon but was not happy with how it was cut. Today I went to Barbara's Hair Studio where I felt positive energy from the moment I entered the salon. By appointment only, the experience was comforting and private. As Barbara shaped the topper to suit my personal style, she listened to me as I described my journey with breast cancer. As a breast cancer survivor, she was understanding, empathetic and offered advice which only reinforced that I made the right choice and that I was in the right place. I am so glad that we connected. I know that this studio is where a woman dealing with hair loss will find knowledge, humor and compassion. Judy M.

Barbara is an amazing caring woman my appointment with her was actually fun even though I was there for less than a fun reason! Going to her after two other not too pleasant wig experiences was like a breath of fresh air.She was patient loving and kind I felt like I was with family! She was not giving up until I found something I liked and looked good on me.She ordered the special size I needed and when it came in and fit all was right with the world again for me!She took the time to show me how I could wear scarves with the half wig or hat hair I also bought. She even coached me on drinking water after chemo to help with the side effects.Barbara is an angel on earth I recommend you go see her for all your needs you owe it to yourself! Angela F. ​

So glad we saw the piece on News12 about Barbara! Came here after a humorously disasterous experience at another wig salon. Barbara was wonderful; relatable, knowledgable and understanding. Her first pick for me to try is actually the one I ended up with! Highly recommend ! G.C.


Barbara is an absolute delight, she is compassionate and knowledgeable. Her product offering covers all stages of hair loss, I would refer all of my friends and family to come see Barbara. Kimberly J.


Dear Barbara, I would like to thank you so very much for all of your help with picking out a wig yesterday. You were both especially nice , which made working with you extremely comfortable, and extremely knowledgeable as to which wig would be the right one for me. Overall, I would say my experience with you was excellent. Also, your new shop is beautiful. I think the idea of having separate rooms, which allows for the utmost privacy, is a brilliant idea. Again, I thank you so, so much for an overall five star experience. I would use your service again without a moment's hesitation. May you be well and happy always. Linda P.
