WHO ARE THE “THE BIG WIGS”
My granddaughter Brandi had been in the market for some extensions so …
On September 10, 2015, we went to the “Going out of Business” sale at Jin’s Wig Salon and Beauty Supply in Orange. At the store we found Jin, the owner, behind the counter. After looking around, Brandi asked if she was moving her location. Jin shared that after 38 years, she was just so ready to retire! We, along with the other customers in the store, were really surprised! Although they were not together, two of the customers commented they had been coming to that store for over 15 years and would be lost without it. One commented “this store is really needed in our community.” After looking around I could see that the store could definitely use a complete face-lift, but she was right, this store was definitely needed in our area! Jin said she was having the sale for three more weeks and any leftover inventory was going to be donated to charity. She had a massive amount of inventory displayed; so I asked her what the value would be if she were to sell it all. She thought for a moment and gave me a figure. I took one look at my granddaughter and she was all smiles. Knowing me as she does, I think she knew what was about to happen! About that time, I turned to Jin and said SOLD; I’ll take it off of your hands! She looked at me like I had two heads and in retrospect I can see why! I wrote her a check and all of a sudden my Brandi had more extensions than she had bargained for!
The timing was as perfect as the business for us. Brandi (27) is an aesthetician, with an established following from working in the Anaheim Hills area. She has excellent skills in waxing and extensive experience as a make-up artist. I have had a cosmetologist license for the past 48 years. I am also an accountant and semi- retired from Precision Aerospace, Corp. a business we have owned and operated for the past 27 years. So we have both youth and experience on our side!” Our combined experience, ambition and desire to succeed, led to us to quickly remodel and reopen as …
“The Big Wigs”… (a catchy little play on words Brandi came up with!)
I thought I had experienced my share of success in my professional as well as my personal life however, little did I realize that all of my previous successes and experiences would soon pale in comparison!
I knew this business would be such a fun for us to do together. However, it rather quickly became apparent there was one aspect I had never really considered. Many of our customers are going through treatments for cancer or other medical problems resulting in extreme hair loss. Having experienced cancer myself; I can completely relate! When one of these customers walks in we can almost instantly sense the despair, pain, and yes, even the embarrassment they are feeling! Our employees are trained to roll out the red carpet for every customer that enters our store. Additionally we offer a 15% discount to all customers experiencing extensive hair loss due to medical issues.
Brandi recently helped a very reluctant, sad little girl (14) that came in with her mother, who was also somewhat reluctant, but desperate to help her daughter. The little girl had lost her hair from chemo treatments. Before long, Brandi had her in the perfect wig for her age and just the style she wanted! By the time they left our store, the little girl was laughing, happy and even hugging my granddaughter and thanking her for giving her hair again! The mother was almost in tears and couldn’t believe her daughters reaction! She was so appreciative and commented that the situation they were facing had been so stressful. She and her husband thought it would be a very long time before they would see their daughter laughing and happy again! That made Brandi’s day to say the least! Now that my friends, is true success! Absolutely nothing has ever given me such a feeling of satisfaction! When we can give back and make even the smallest difference in another person’s life; that’s what it’s all about!
Oncologists and hospitals in the Orange County area refer their patients to us. We offer these customers a 15% discount, excellent service, and most importantly – our undivided attention!
