When Life Gives You Lemons, Open A Wig Boutique!

“My goal is to help people see that wigs are a great fashion accessory for every outfit,” says, Kelly Giblin, owner of Lemonade Locks Wigs & Hairpieces in Bakersfield, California.

Kelly knows first-hand just how empowering wigs and hairpieces can be. After being diagnosed with alopecia and experiencing hair loss herself, she embarked on a personal journey to find solutions.

“I had terrible experiences trying to find wigs,” she says. That’s what ultimately led her to start selling wigs as a side business on evenings and weekends from her home. “Once I found what worked for me and discovered how empowering they could be, I wanted to help other women who were going through the same thing.”

When the San Joaquin Community Hospital reached out to Kelly and offered an opportunity to open a wig shop inside their new AIS Cancer Center, Kelly retired from her full-time job as a law administrator and Lemonade Locks was born. The adage, “When life gives you lemons…” was the inspiration for the boutique’s name.

Always striving to offer her clients the best possible experiences, Kelly participated in the Aderans Educational Seminar in Los Angeles last year.

“They really let us have some hands-on training and taught me some things I didn’t know.”

Today Kelly’s business has evolved into a full-service boutique offering not just wigs but also private consultations, custom fittings, and styling. Kelly also offers in-home wig parties.

According to Kelly, nothing’s more rewarding than helping to put a patient’s mind at ease.

“I love it when customers fall in love with their wigs and want to wear them home.” says Kelly.

A toast (of lemonade, of course) to you, Kelly. We salute your mission to help women feel confident and beautiful.
