Our Story

The Wiggery first opened, in 1970, in downtown Anderson next to The Paramount Theatre, by Mr. & Mrs. Simon who later sold the business to Barbara Moffitt. Barbara ran the business for many years, with the assistance of local hairstylist Carolyn Darr. They later moved the business to its current location on Claire St., Anderson, in 1992. After being a long-time customer of The Wiggery, retired Alexandria school teacher, Judy Grose, along with her husband, Ralph, bought the business and ran it together with Carolyn for 24 more years, with the determination and mutual passion of serving the many clients in the Anderson area and beyond. After Judy passed away in 2016, her daughter, Kim Zarse, decided to retire from teaching in Elwood and take over running the business. Carolyn, in the meantime, wanted to retire after working at The Wiggery over 30 years, so it was necessary to locate another hairstylist who knows and understands the wig business. Kim was introduced to hairstylist, Stephanie, who not only has been a hairstylist for 27 years but is also a cancer survivor who wore wigs. Together, Kim and Stephanie are committed to the personalized service that The Wiggery has offered since it was first opened in 1970.

Swing by and say hello soon, after all, beauty comes from the inside, inside the wig shop!
