Here are some testimonials from our customers
Have you ever met an Angel? I’ve met three (3) recently, Syvie, Cathy and the nice lady who washed my hair. Suffering from alopecia for a long time I tried different options but this time was the most extraordinary.
Thank you for making me look even better than before and above all natural.
Cathy, you have the fingers of a fairy and a contagious joie de vivre.
I’m even happier now and above all, ladies, take a step forward and you’ll love each other again.

Sylvie, Kathy, Raquel,
You truly are Angels!
After touring several salons in search of a place I could trust, I was touched by the testimonial of one of your clients and decided to consult you.
I decided to consult you and was not disappointed. The contact was very warm and respectful.
You understood my needs and the hairpiece you ordered for me exceeded my expectations.
It suits me very well, makes me look younger, and looks very natural. I wear it with pleasure, especially as it’s not heavy or intrusive.
So thank you, Angels, and for those of you who are hesitating, this is the best place.
A very happy customer

My name is Gabrielle Doyon and I was diagnosed with lymphoma in August 2019 at the age of 27. Someone told me about hairdressing angels at the hospital and I really came across angels.
I’ve been fighting this battle since August 2019 and I’ve searched a lot on the internet: informative sites, foundations, etc. but I’ve only found a few websites with testimonials from real people fighting cancer. So I had the idea of sharing my experience since, with a little research, it’s very difficult to find such true testimonials that enlighten people about this battle. I mention your salon because you were part of a big step in my journey.
So here goes. I share my blog, hoping to share and help others with my testimony.
If you feel like sharing, please do so on your social networks or on the testimonial section of your website. It’s up to you!
Thank you for sharing!
Hello Kathy and Sylvie,
I can’t help but write you this note to tell you how much I appreciate my prosthesis. Every morning I wear it, I realize what an artist’s work you’ve done. It looks so much like my hair that when I look in the mirror, it feels like it’s my own. Needless to say, people don’t believe me when I tell them it’s a hair prosthesis.
I want you to know how much happiness your talent has given me, because before arriving at the final result, you patiently put up with my fears, ignorance and apprehensions. All that is now far behind me, for I thank life for having crossed your path, as you have enabled me to live through this period of hair loss following chemotherapy without suffering the impact of a change in appearance thanks to my hair prosthesis.
Our health is a priority when we’re battling cancer, but our appearance is crucial to our morale! And to succeed in this challenge, you need COURAGE! It’s an aspect that must not be neglected on the road to recovery.
Bravo for the sunshine you spread in the lives of people going through difficult times, and thank you for your presence!

To whom it may concern,
I am writing this letter to express my great satisfaction with Mesdames Kathy Roy and Sylvie Bourget, both as a woman who has benefited from their services and as a healthcare professional who appreciates and understands the importance of their work.
Let me explain. As a breast cancer patient, I’m currently undergoing chemotherapy, which has resulted in the loss of all my hair. Since I knew this was going to happen, I started looking for a hair replacement. Facing a diagnosis of breast cancer is a very traumatic event. There’s nothing worse for a woman than losing her hair. The loss is sudden and occurs over a two-week period, accentuating the demoralizing effects of treatment and reminding us of the severe nature of a cancer diagnosis. Hair loss is unavoidable and reminds the patient and family of the struggle they face on a daily basis. Having the right prosthesis would ease my suffering and that of my family. If I were to face this terrible disease, my family would benefit. I’ve always been very proud of my physical appearance and finding the right hair prosthesis would help me stay positive. When I started my chemotherapy treatments, my nurse gave me a list of salons where I could get a prosthesis. On the first day, I visited four salons and came away demoralized. The prostheses didn’t suit me and made me look awful. Several of the sales reps seemed more motivated to sell me a prosthesis, while at the same time being insensitive to my feelings. I was depressed.
That’s when I met Madame Kathy Roy. Finally, there was someone who understood me. She understood the trauma I was facing and the difficulties I was experiencing. She received me in a private practice, studied my facial profile and had me try on prostheses that made me look attractive. They suited my facial morphology, which gave me hope. For the first time, I felt that it could be a more pleasant experience than I had imagined. It wasn’t really the prosthesis that excited me, but the way Madame Roy treated me. I’m a nurse educator and I have a lot of knowledge about patients and the experience of illness; how healthcare professionals can make a difference through their sensitivity and the way they dialogue with a person.
Ms. Roy was genuinely interested in me as a person, not as someone who wanted to sell a product. She gave me an hour of her time, and I never felt the pressure to buy the product. She gave me the impression that she had all the time in the world for me, that she wanted the best so that I would feel good. When I left that day, I went to another salon, but returned to Madame Kathy Roy the next day to buy the hair prosthesis. The following week, I went back to Madame Roy to have my hair shaved as it was starting to fall out. Losing your hair is very traumatic, but Madame Roy showed me a great deal of respect; in a private practice, she touched my head with great kindness and slowly began to shave my hair. When it was finished, she washed my head and held it gently in her hands. I felt the human warmth emanating from this woman and her understanding of the ordeal I was going through. I’ll never forget that experience. She then cut the hair on the prosthesis to fit my face. Madame Roy transformed a dramatic event into a spiritual experience.
I’ve been wearing my prosthesis for a few months now and people’s reactions have been unanimous. Few people believe that I’m wearing a hair prosthesis, because it looks so natural. A few friends have even said they prefer the prosthesis to my natural hair. While I was waiting for a chemotherapy treatment, another patient said to me: “You’re lucky you didn’t lose your hair”. She didn’t believe me when I told her it was a prosthesis. So I lifted it up to show her my baldness. I’ve told several people about Madame Roy, and I don’t hesitate to tell them why she’s the best in her field.
I let Ms. Roy know that I would do everything I could to help her with her new project, the opening of her new salon, and to make her dream come true. I have many contacts in the healthcare field and as a nurse. I’m a professor of nursing at McGill University, and several of my former students hold key positions in oncology. I was previously Director of McGill’s School of Nursing, and last year I was awarded the Insigne du Mérite, the highest honour bestowed by the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec. I’m also Nurse-in-Residence at the Jewish General Hospital, which has one of the most comprehensive and innovative oncology departments in the world. I know some of the most important professionals in the healthcare field, both personally and professionally.
Ms. Roy and Ms. Bourget are very sensitive and talented women who offer an invaluable service. I believe in them and in what they do. I will do everything in my power to support them in their endeavours.
