Just Wig It, Baby!

Linda Lee Harris has been having a love affair with wigs since high school.
“I wanted a Bob and I didn’t want to cut my hair. So I saved up my pennies and bought my first wig,” she says.

Today that passion has become a successful business. Linda owns and operates a Merle Norman Cosmetics Center in Colorado Springs that is also a wig salon – she describes it as a one-stop shop dedicated to helping women gain confident and beautiful.

Linda knows that being an avid wig lover has helped her to build her reputation. She says, “If you don’t wear wigs, how can you explain them to your customers?”

“I tell them, ‘Just wig it, Baby!’”

Linda started her career working for the previous owners of the Merle Norman Center, and when they retired, she took the reins. Over the last 36 years, Linda has built a loyal following by keeping it fun. She helps her customers understand that trying and buying wigs is like playing dress up for grown-up girls.

“It’s not a job for me. It’s more than that. You’re encouraging people to feel good themselves, and that is so rewarding.”
