Wigs began in the basement of the former Jonas department store back in 1990. Frank took over his dad's shop in 2004 and went on to expand it to the present location. The initial concept was to be a beauty supply store, but over the years the emphasis shifted to everything hair. Today, this store is absolutely awesome. There is nothing that we could think of relating to hair that was not on a shelf. And wigs are everywhere - in every style and color imaginable. Frank has definitely cut out a niche for himself in several markets. Most importantly, he and his staff work with cancer patients, even accepting their insurance. His other customers include Broadway performers, strippers, drag queens, business women, and Halloween celebrants. All in all, Frank seems to have garnered a significant customer base over the years with his array of wigs.
Opened by a second-generation Korean immigrant, Hanna Wigs focuses on self-love as much as it does fashion. Gina Kwon, Hanna’s niece and protégé, explained that their products are personal items, not just simple accessories. “We are very connected to our clients, ” many of whom have lost their hair to chemotherapy, alopecia, or stress. “We give them comfort, confidence, and beauty. ” To make sure their wigs are perfectly tailored to client needs, each is handmade and customized. “We give the wigs identity, ” Gina said.
