Operator, Eleanor Burgess, has been hairdressing for over 40 years. Georgies was established in 1993 when a close friend of Eleanor's needed the reassurance of a quality wig after being diagnosed with cancer. 

“We pride ourselves on treating every person who visits with sensitivity, discretion and respect. Our aim is to take away the stigma often associated with hair loss and offer each client all the possibilities available to them.”
Georgies unique team of experienced hair stylists work in confidence and are happy to offer you private consultations in the salon, at your home or in the hospital.
*note only in-salon consultations are available with clip-ins.

Georgies consultants regularly travel to New Plymouth, Hawkes Bay and Greymouth.
