Who We Are
Why limit yourself? At CysterWigs, we offer a wide variety of sexy awesomeness.
We specialize in fashionable, youthful alternative hair fashions (IE: wigs) for women with PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome, or PCOS. We are the only hair vendor on the web that caters to this group! (And it's about time, might I add!) We provide support, advice, wigs, peace, <3, and understanding - in other words - "CysterHood" - to women all over the interwebs with PCOS-related hair concerns.
You don't need to have PCOS to be one of our Cysters. We are proud allies of the LGBTQA+ community and big fans of wig enthusiasts of all backgrounds and interests. Love wigs? We love you!
How we started
CysterWigs.com was founded in 2013 by Heather Hershey. She was a graduate student at that time. She attended classes at the University of Georgia for a Master of Science degree in Artificial Intelligence while supervising the student run radio station on campus, WUOG 90.5.
While all of this was going on, Heather realized that there weren't any stores that catered to her form of hair loss -- specifically, the androgenic hair loss caused by PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome.
Women with PCOS are not the same age as typical wig wearers, and therefore, they have special considerations and fashion requirements that were not being met by other stores online that tended to cater towards only mature clientele.
So, she created her dream store so we could share it with you! Our site is thoughtfully cultivated, meaning that we do not carry every wig from every brand we carry. Our collections are deliberately designed to ensure that the wig you purchase from us is age-appropriate for a typical woman with PCOS, who is generally 18 - 45 years of age. (The great news is that many women above that age range still appreciate our collections for steering them towards chic, fresh looking medical wigs!)
Heather continues to be the designer and coder of this site. She continually strives to make improvements that will make shopping and learning about hair easier for our clients every day!
We never shy away from progress or new technologies, either. Expect to see continual innovations to the site as we continue to grow!
Where We're From
Our main office is located smack dab in the center of breathtaking Athens, GA where hipsters and trendsetters roam freely among us, humidity is high, and the allergy quotient is ridiculous.
