Janelle Pullman is one of the foremost hair loss specialists in the Bay Area, with over thirty years experience in the field. At age 12 she began styling wigs for fashion and fun, and assisted her mother after she established Wigworks in the early 70’s. Her passion for hair led her to Honolulu where she worked closely with legendary stylist Paul Mitchell. She performed onstage platform hair styling with Mr. Mitchell, as well as legendaries Jean Braa, Zenon, and Alan Bush. The group pioneered strand by strand hair extension, and the development of Mega Hair. She was highly involved with the development and distribution of the Paul Mitchell line, and later worked as a color representative for L’Oreal and stylist instructor for Matrix.
She returned to the Bay Area and expanded Wigworks, with the establishment of Extensions for Hair. The revolutionary new hair extension method offered clients with thin hair the opportunity to augment, rather than relying on a wig or hair clip for length or fullness. Her hair extensions are popular with women of all ages.
Janelle is a breast cancer survivor and understands from first hand experience the devastation of complete hair loss. She finds great joy in helping cancer patients find the wig that is most like their own hair and is complementary to their face and style. Many of her clients continue to wear wigs after their hair grows back. Once they get used to wearing a hair piece they realize how easy, convenient, and fun they can be - and how nice it is to have great looking hair every day.
Ms. Pullman and her staff at Wigworks have expertise in making hair loss clients feel comfortable and relaxed. They are encouraged to take their time and try as many different styles as they like. Private areas have been established for those who prefer discretion.
All wigs are carefully selected by Janelle. Sometimes clients losing hair believe they must buy the most expensive product to get the best result. But that is not the case. All of the wigs are excellent hair products that look natural and are reasonably priced. On a monthly basis Janelle chooses her favorite wigs and lists them for sale on the website. Any wig purchased online may be brought into the shop, by appointment, for a free bang trim. She also has a full line of unique clip-on hair pieces.
