Our Mission: Every day can be a good hair day!
Whether you are experiencing complete hair loss due to chemotherapy or alopecia, struggle with thinning hair, or just wear wigs for fun or fashion, we want to be your one-stop wig shop! We promise to go above and beyond to provide you with the best selection of wigs and hairpieces along with first class customer service.
What we do: We believe great hair does not come from a box – so it just doesn’t make sense to try to shop for hair in a catalog or on the internet. To achieve the perfect fit, style and color, we have created our personalized process, designed around your unique needs. With our large, up-to-date inventory and the expertise of our certified wig fitters, we have made the wig shopping experience easy and pleasurable. Because when it comes to hair one size most definitely does not fit all, we custom size, cut and style each wig or hairpieces to recreate the appearance of your own natural hair. You will be amazed at the results!
A Special Place Custom Wig Gallery was established in 2003 in Greensboro, N.C. by Greensboro native, Jamela Hodgson. After 6 years of working with breast cancer patients as a Certified Mastectomy Fitter, Jamela partnered with Second to Nature After Breast Surgery Fashions to provide a wigs for breast cancer patients – and A Special Place was born.
Our unique concept in wig shopping has been met with a phenomenal response, which has led to continued growth and expansion. Soon we discovered that the need for quality custom wigs expanded far beyond breast cancer patients, and we began seeing customers with all types of wig and hairpiece needs.
