Our Story

Lois M. Arnold was the CEO and owner of the prominent Itno-J University City Salon and Spa Inc. 4012 Market St in Philadelphia she retired from hair and sold the business in 2008 after thirty-three years of being a shop owner. She opened the Philadelphia ChemoCap Store 764 S. 4th St in July 2009.

In 2011 she was advised by a marketing company to change the name to Lois A. Wig Boutique during that time she was fitting and styling wigs for women going through chemotherapy and other illnesses that cause hair loss. She also volunteered with hospitals teaching how to wear a wig properly and scarf tying tips. Lois worked with the American Cancer Society – Look Good Feel Good Program until they stopped in 2015.

 

Although she was not a non-profit, she gave or discounted wigs for cancer patients that were in need. In 2015 to better serve her community, she decided to become a 501©3 non-profit and changed the name to Hairs 2 U Wig Bank, and moved to a bigger location at 760 S. 4th St. two doors down the street.
