I think I met a true angel in Andrew. Andrew made a beautiful wig for me that makes me feel beautiful again. I suffer from severe alopecia, and have had a real complex about it. Andrew worked his magic and created for me a beautiful wig that makes me look 20 years younger. My wig is so well constructed. The beautiful part of this experience is I have never met Andrew. I sent him pictures and measurements and my wig fits perfect. He took my ideas of the look I wanted and made the exact wig I longed for. I feel so blessed to wear my Andrew DiSimone masterpiece. I will only wear Andrew's wigs from now on. Thank you Andrew for caring so much. I have so much respect for you. You're Awesome!

I have been dealing with on and off hair growth for the last 11 years of my life. I finally got enough courage to have a wig made to help me through my shedding periods. I went to a wig maker in Brooklyn who fabricated a human hair wig. The wig was okay but the cut was terrible. I did some research online and came across Andrew. Within the first 5 minutes he made me feel very comfortable and within 15 minutes of cutting my wig he made me smile. Andrew made the wig look perfect as well as me. I have since worn it twice to go out with friends with rave reviews. My only regret is I did not find Andrew sooner to make the wig. His talents are special as well as his advice. Honest and to the point. Good job Andrew and thank you. Ali

Andrew is a slice of heaven on Earth. Our daughter came from Iraq when she was 5 years old, severely burned on her hands, face and head leaving her terribly scarred with virtually no hair. At age 11, she has just completed her 17 surgery to repair the skin to her face and yet, most important to her, was to get hair. She's had a few wigs, and recently we had Andrew outfit her with a wig that has brought such joy and a huge smile to her beautiful face. Thank you Andrew for creating the perfect style, length and color for our little angel. This particular wig is lighter (in weight) and looks like she never lost a hair on her head. We are so very grateful for your time and patience.

Andrew spent over two hours answering all of my questions and was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. He just wants a customer to be very very happy and pleased. After I selected a wig, and came back to pick it up, I decided I just was not ready to actually commit at this time. Without any problem at all, Andrew, refunded my deposit in full! He could not have been any nicer or more professional! I will definitely return at a future date. This is the only place to go if you want or need a wig. You will not be sorry and most certainly be very pleased with the level of service rendered.

My mother is a cancer patient, and was hesitant about using a wig as a way to deal with the hair loss. But I told her that wig shopping or going some place for a wig consultation wouldn't hurt, and that she did not have to commit to anything if she did not want to. We found Andrew DiSimone online and went in to see him right away. Andrew was kind, supportive, and he was not at all pushy about us committing to a wig right then and there. He gave us personalized attention while also giving us space to discuss whether or not a wig was something that my mom wanted. We decided on one of the wigs he showed us, after he gave us his honest reviews of real hair wig vs. synthetic wigs. Because my mom has had short hair for years, she wanted a short wig. Andrew suggested we go with a synthetic wig since real hair wigs are best long (he did not push the more expensive real hair wigs). During the whole consultation I felt that Andrew was honestly trying to help. Talking to him was more like talking a friend with experience with cancer patients rather than a salesman. Andrew cut and styled the wig to my mother's liking without charging extra, and offered to retouch whenever she liked if she felt she wanted to alter it a little more. He has also offered to cut and style her real hair when it grows back after chemo free of charge. I highly recommend Wigs for Cancer Patients with Andrew DiSimone for anyone going through the very scary, painful, and stressful cancer journey.

Andrew DiSimone was like an angel the way he helped me feel good about my looks during these difficult times of hair loss from chemo. He lifted my spirits by finding me a beautiful wig and I was amazed on the way he styled it to make it look just like me :) He turned what could have been a really tough experience into a wonderful and joyful memory. THANK YOU ANDREW FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART <3
