Queens of Wigs is beyond your local wig shop and wig expert Yondel Benjamin makes that very clear. "I don't sell wigs, I sell crowns" she says. Yondel was taught by celebrity tv host Wendy Williams' former crown adorness, Ms. Hadiiya Barbel that wigs are something you just slap on your head. Crowns are customized ,not cheap, and respected. Yondel also stands out from the rest because she self taught herself how to make customized lace crowns (wigs) and teaches other how to make them. To the 25 year old solo-preneuer Its more than selling wigs its a movement.
"Its beyond covering a flaw its about changes lives one crown at a time, my clients love my pieces they're natural and realistic. I educate them about what they are wearing and teach them how to take care of their protective crown and their real crown"
The teaching naturally comes to Yondel, she has her B.A in Education and English from Syracuse University and she often says, "I am a teacher by trade and wig designer by passion. I have been blessed with the opportunity to have created a business doing two things I love."
How it all started? It started three years ago when Yondel was out of college and couldn't find a job she started building her business. Then when she was later faced with a lay off she realized its time to turn my business to a reality. With each career hardship she faces the stronger the business grows. That's definitely a sign. Facing yet another layoff, Yondel has decided to open up shop. She makes it clear that people understand its not a shop you have to come in and have it custom made or order a stock piece.
On top of selling crowns, Yondel teaches stylists how to create them by teaching courses at the design studio.
Where is it? 248 Farmington Avenue, Suite 201 Hartford, CT 06105
Schedule an appointment for a design session. Yondel prefers appointments as opposed to walk-ins because she values the privacy of her clients. "My clients who have experienced hair loss have been through a lot. These crowns are life changing for them. That's why I do what I do they need me as much as I need them. I value their privacy plus they like the one on one time with me to make sure we are creating exactly what they want.
What the future holds for Yondel? She plans on bringing Miami and NYC to CT. "Its time CT step up their beauty industry instead of talking about it - I had to act on it. I plan to bring Queens of Wigs into local CT high end salons. I plan to train stylist on correct wig applications and so much more. While doing this all I plan to have fun. There's so much people who need this business its time they know I exist."
