Janelle Pullman is one of the foremost hair loss specialists in the Bay Area with over thirty years of experience in the industry. Her unparalleled professional background combined with her compassion and exuberant personality makes her stand out as a hair care specialist. At the young age of 12, she began styling wigs for fashion and fun and assisted her mother after she established the premier wig shop, Wigworks, in the early ’70s. Her passion for hair led her to Honolulu where she worked closely with legendary stylist Paul Mitchell. She performed onstage platform hairstyling with Mr. Mitchell, as well as partnered with legendaries Jean Braa, Zenon, and Alan Bush. The group pioneered the popular strand by strand hair extension method 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.
Janelle later 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 their locks rather than rely solely on a wig or hair clip for length or fullness. Her high-quality hair extensions are popular with women of all ages and her skill at applying them sets her above others in the field.
As a breast cancer survivor, Janelle's passion is helping others who are traveling down this painful journey 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; feeling beautiful and most like yourself is a much-needed gift during this complicated time. Janelle is so skilled that many of her clients even continue to wear wigs after their hair grows back! Once they get used to wearing a hairpiece they realize how easy, convenient, and fun they can be - and how nice it is to have great looking hair every day.
The importance of feeling confident through hair styling is of the utmost importance to Janelle and so she closely works with her staff to put clients first. From the moment you step into Wigworks, you'll appreciate their expertise in making hair loss clients feel comfortable and relaxed. You'll have the rare treat to be encouraged to take your time and try as many different styles as you like. Private areas have been established for those who prefer discretion.
You'll appreciate the care and meticulousness of this shop in that 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. Wigworks only sells premium 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 hairpieces to suit a variety of needs and budgets. Wigworks and Extensions for Hair is more than a salon and wig store; it's a comforting place where the client is put first and the goal is to make you feel your best in any situation.
To contact Janelle regarding her products, fees or service, or to set up an appointment for a fitting or hair extensions, please call the salon or e-mail your request.
