With the holiday season wrapping up some of us are caught up in a whirlwind of activities. Making the smooth transition from the office to the office party or from the boardroom to the ballroom may present some challenges. Hair stylist Johnny Gentry has come to the rescue. He is offering custom made wigs to get you through the season with easy and style.

Gentry, a Harlem residence, has establish an uptown salon and presently caters to an appointment only clientele. Many of his clients have been with him for more than ten years. Past and present celebrity clients include; the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, model and television mogul Tyra Banks, and Singer/ songwriter Kelis.


“When it come to wigs the general public is just catching up with the celeberties.” Johnny confesses. This is evident even among the new “divas” including Beyonce (her two tone layered wig was trend setting), Rihanna ( her fire engine red hair is still the rave), and even comedian and septuagenarian Joan Rivers wears clip in falls and pieces. Talk show host Wendy Williams has found an additional utilitarian use for wigs as a place to keep her notes.


Gentry specializes in custom made wigs. He offers pre-made and custom order wigs using the best quality materials for lasting durability. For more information about Johnny Gentry custom wigs and salon services contact him at 212-666-0751.
