Faux Fabulous: Georgies Wig Shop
You’ve just returned home from the movie ‘Mama Mia! Here We Go Again’. You can’t believe how gorgeous Cher looked with her platinum shoulder-length bob. She can’t be 72? You may have read somewhere that she’s such a fan of faux hair; her home has its own ‘wig room’!
You stare in the mirror at your dull, drab do. The alopecia hasn’t helped. You sigh, loudly. It’s all right for Cher… who’s going to help you look like her? Eleanor Burgess, that’s who! Eleanor is the owner of Georgies Wigs and Hair Design, 570 Barbadoes Street and has been hairdressing for 40 years. She totally understands how a great head of hair can boost confidence and self-esteem. It was in response to a close friend needing reassurance after receiving a cancer diagnosis that Georgies was established in 1993, in Palmerston North.
Some 24 years later, and with legions of delighted, devoted clients up and down the country, Eleanor opened her Christchurch branch. “We’re New Zealand’s largest wig shop, stocking around 500 plus wigs of quality real and synthetic hair, in every conceivable style and length, as well as hair pieces and extensions,” Eleanor says.
“Our new colours are stunning – from toning blondes and cooler blondes through to ravishing reds and burnished brunettes. We offer private salon consultations, home consultations or hospital consultations with the best of experienced stylists.”
You stare at the goddess in the mirror…platinum shoulder-length bob…OMG, it’s you!
