Dear Laurie: 

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful way Bloom Wigs, and you, made this difficult life changing experience such a fun one! It is such a nice personal touch to offer the home service, as it really is much more comfortable to be able to do this at home with friends and family. I found so many different items that I loved and the scarf cap is now my favourite! You made it a pleasure to shop for something that is one of the many difficult experiences a women with breast cancer can face through this journey! I really can't praise your accolades enough ... you were punctual, warm and friendly, professional and a lot of fun! Who can ask for anything more! Thanks for making me feel so special and good!
Warm regards, Darcy

 

 


 

Thank you so much for the excellent door to door service for trying on and purchasing wigs, scarves, hats and sleeping beanies. I will be losing my hair due to having chemo and Laurie made this experience positive and enjoyable. (something I thought was not possible). Laurie was extremely professional and allowed me, actually encouraged me, to try on many wigs to find the right one(s). There was no pressure, just relaxing fun! Yes, fun, in my own home! The wigs themselves are of excellent quality and very natural looking. Both my friend and I would like to thank you Laurie for such a positive experience and for boosting my confidence while working through the challenges ahead.

Hi Val;


I just wanted to express my gratitude on having you come to my home and help me find a wig. You made it so comfortable for me and personable. My family thought it was such a lovely fun filled event. It was great to share this time with my little girl, mom, sister, aunt, sister in law, nieces and friends (ages ranging from 6 to 70yrs). We all had a wonderful time and you were so professional. I am truly thankful that I found a perfect wig and head accessories to help me with my transition as I start my journey with chemotherapy. I will recommend Bloom In Home Wig Service to anyone I encounter who may need the same type of service. Truly Amazing. THANK YOU!!

 Dear Laurie,

I can't begin to thank you enough for coming to my home today to help fit me for a wig. The girls and I had so much fun trying on the different styles and finding the perfect one for me.  Laurie, you're just such a lovely person and you made the afternoon so much fun for all of us. I am absolutely thrilled with my new wig, I've received so many compliments and I feel like my old self again!I would highly recommend Bloom Wig Service; they are extremely professional and the quality of the wigs far exceeded my expectations.

Thanks again Laurie!

I had to tell you what a fun appointment my girlfriends and I had with you.  I loved that you encouraged me to invite my "posse" and to make it into a fun night.  We had so many laughs, yet you managed to corral us enough, that together, we found the cutest wig ever!!
 
I feel ready to face everyone again.
 
You're the best,
J.E.

Laurie,
 
I was so happy to have discovered a service like yours even existed in Kelowna.  I will tell as many people as I can about what you do and all the great things you bring to an appointment.
 
You really have everything I needed and more!!
 
Thanks again,

Bloom Wigs,
 
Just had to say a big thank you for all you've done for me.  I honestly thought I would never find something that made me feel like myself again, but the wig you sold me is better than my own hair ever was!! I feel fantastic and I just wanted you to know what a wonderful service you provide. 
 
I would recommend your business to anyone,
Thanks again,

 Hi Laurie,


I was thrilled to meet you on July 16th with my hubby and friend with me. The "at home" viewing and try-ons are absolutely the best. It gives you a comfy surrounding where you can laugh or boo at how you look in the mirror as you search for that right wig.  In my case we found the favourite on my first try based on a simple description to Laurie of what I wanted. Trouble was, we found another wig that also was awesome after more try ons. I was about to ask for votes on which one to choose when hubby voiced that we would take them both! We were all so excited and moved to tears as we laughed and loved that moment.

Laurie is a kind and professional person who well represents the supply for an ever growing demand in our current health and lifestyle patterns. This is a must do appointment for anyone requiring hair replacement for whatever reason. Personally, I am thinking of continuing to shave my head as my two wigs have a bounty of hair that I do not possess naturally.

Thank you Laurie for an amazing morning with you! I start back to work part-time on August 1st and will be proud to wear your product!!

Ladies,
 
It is my absolute pleasure to send this little testimonial your way.  Both my twin and I were very impressed with the level of compassion and service I received last Friday.  We had a lot of laughs! 
 
Thank you so much.

Laurie!! 

Once again you and your smiling face have come through. I love that after someone gets a wig from you guys, that you always take the time to follow up and help out. Even when you consider going out of your element!! lol Thank you for helping me with making sure that I was happy with my hair!! You truly are the best!! :)

 


 Laurie,

 

I just want to say how much you helped me get the perfect wig I was looking for and, most important, the one that fit me best.
I had in the past, ordered 2 wigs off the internet.  Neither wig fit properly, and they didn't look as good as I had hoped. With you bringing so many to try on, we found the cutest wig and one that fit correctly. Because of my condition, I will be ordering more wigs through Bloom, I'm a believer!!

Laurie,

 

What a great appt.!!  Lots of laughs, but most importantly, I found not one, but two beautiful wigs.
We all felt really comfortable with you, and you knew all about the care and maintenance, and made it easy to understand.
I highly recommend your service to anyone who needs a wig.  Oh, and your hats and scarves are perfect for people going through treatment!! Cheers!

 I would like to thank Val for all her help in finding me a whole new style.  Losing your hair is not a nice thing especially if your a women.  Any women who are experiencing or know of anyone who has this issue I strongly suggest Bloom Wigs.  I had Val come to my home with all her wigs and I had my sisters here to help me choose a style that suited me. It was a positive experience and we had a few laughs too.  Thanks Val.

Val,  I just want to thank you for sending me the wigs to try. The one that I picked, I had styled and I have so many compliment on it. I have been standing right beside someone and they believed it was my real hair. Thank you.

Recently I connected with Bloom Wigs after seeing their website. I don't live in their business area but planned to be in Kelowna. They met me at my hotel and brought lots of wigs, hats and scarves for me to try. I have scarring alopecia and they were knowledgeable and understanding of my permanent hair loss. We had a wonderful, relaxed afternoon trying wigs and narrowing down the choices. With their expert advice and experience, I chose one that they, and I felt was right. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! And they are following up with advice and interest.

 

Thank you both! I'll probably be back for another wig one of these days.

Thank you Valerie for a fun evening of trying on wigs etc. What a great service.  I love my new wig & so does everyone else. Losing my hair was devastating but thanks to you & Bloom, I feel good about myself.  Can't wait to get another one.  :-)

On December 11th 2012 I had the pleasure of Laurie visiting me in the comfort of my home and the presence of a daughter and friend. She brought with her a wonderful, warm, outgoing personality, a wide selection of product, and a very large mirror. Laurie was professional and sensitive about how women who are experiencing hair loss feel and was respectful of my tastes and choices. She went on to demonstrate different styling ideas with these product choices. It was great having a large mirror so I could actually "see" what I looked like. I contacted Bloom because of the in-home service – it was very relaxing and even fun and I did not have to deal with an audience. I would highly recommend the services of Bloom to anyone experiencing the often traumatic experience of hair loss.

Dear Laurie,

I just have to say what an exceptional lady you are in helping me choose the most awesome wig ever!  I can hardly wait to take my new hair to my boyfriend's Xmas party tomorrow night.  YOU gave me the confidence to actually be excited to go out! I would recommend Laurie to anyone who needs to feel like a woman again (words borrowed from Shania Twain), having her was like having one of my best girlfriends help me pick out that special outfit.  I am forever grateful for your invaluable help.

THANK-YOU BLOOM WIGS!

 

Hello Laurie,

A heartfelt thank you for helping my sister back in the summer. This note is long overdue, as the experience my sisters and her close friends had when you came over, was most memorable.


Your compassion, positive energy and delicate sense of humour you brought to finding the perfect wig for my sister was amazing. The selection of wigs you brought, along with the gorgeous colourful scarves and hats was awesome.


You really listened to what my sister was looking for and shared your genuine feedback in the selection of the perfect wig. You made the entire experience most comforting and suprisingly fun!

We were so fortunate to have you come to my sisters home, where it turned into a mini 'wig /moral support party!" My sister still receives numerous compliments on "Julia". I know she feels very comfortable wearing it, as well. I would highly recommend your professional service and selection you have to anyone that is looking or needing Bloom Wigs!

Thank you again,
O.W

Hi Val,

Just wanted to say thank you! My mom was too sick to leave the house and you made this one less thing for her to worry about - what a wonderful service you provide. My mom is very happy with her new wig and scarves and so am I - she looks just like herself. Thank you Val, I will recommend Bloom to everyone in need of a wig.

Take care. Stacey


 

Laurie and Val,

I just wanted to say again how much you helped my mom. She looks great and is so pleased she can still go out and do the things she loves. No one can tell she's wearing a wig and I know this has helped with her overall outlook. Thank you for all the time you took finding her the perfect look. M.M. Westside


 

The ladies of Bloom Wigs,

I had to write this for anyone looking for a wig. What a wonderful idea to bring the wigs to my home. I didn't have to brave the elements to shop for a wig, you brought them directly to me. Bloom has a really great selection and lots of helpful suggestions. If you're in need of a wig this is the place to find one. T.H. Kettle Valley


 

Laurie,

Wow, what a great job you did finding the wig "Angelique" for me. I was skeptical I would find something I really liked. I kind of thought I would have to settle for a wig that was just okay. Well I was wrong, the wig I got is cuter than my own hair. I love it, and feel wonderful when I go out. Thank you so much. K.C. Okanagan Falls


 

Val and Laurie,

My sisters and I want to thank you both for helping our mom. After getting over the initial shock, we started looking for wigs and found your business on-line. I know we have a big family and there were a lot of us there, but that didn't seem matter to you two at all. It turned into a memorable evening and your knowledge on wigs was so helpful. Plus all the little things we wouldn't have thought of. You made us all laugh, and really enjoy the appt. My whole family recommends anyone looking for a wig to contact this business, you won't be disappointed. Donna L. Kelowna


 

Hi Val
Thanks for getting the info about the hat for me. I have worn the hat wig whenever I go out, other than for just a walk. I wanted to write a reference note for your company as well. I went to the Look Good Feel Better  place and told them how I appreciated your help and support.

 


 

To whom it may concern;

I found Bloom In-Home Wig Service at the Wellness Fair at Parkinson Rec. Centre this last fall. The company is owned by Valerie Andersen and Laurie Bruce and both ladies were extremely supportive, compassionate and helpful to me. The products I ordered from the show were promptly delivered to my home by Val. When I started to lose my hair, I called Val and my new 'hat wig' was delivered within a few hours.

This company has excellent products and both ladies are very knowledgeable. There are also many products to choose from and I must say the "hat wig" suits my purposes and personality perfectly!

I have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone.

I purchased my wig from Laurie and Val from Bloom In-Home Wig Service.  I found both of them to be very caring and compassionate.  They were accomodating as well, special ordering a petite size for me.  I would highly recommend these ladies and their services to anyone purchasing a wig.

Dear Val and Laurie,I have been a wig wearer for nearly 20 years, and truly appreciate the personal attention I received from you, especially coming to my home where I didn't feel self-conscious trying on different styles.Val, you "Wow"ed me when you kept me in mind and came over with the brand new styles for me to try because you thought they would suit me. I will be calling again soon! Thanks again.

Janet from Penticton


 

I would like to thank the ladies at Bloom Wigs for their caring, kind, personal and sometimes humorous service they provided when providing me with a wig.  As a senior lady who doesn't drive, it is very difficult for me to get out, so their at home visit was a blessing.  With my new "hair" I am no longer self-conscious going out in public.  Oh, and did I say the youthful style makes me look ten years younger?!

Thank you Val!

Dorothy, Summerland BC


 

Laurie and Val,

I just wanted to let you know, how much I appreciated all the help you gave me during a very traumatic time.  You had such a great selection of wigs, as well as hats and scarves, and your eyebrow wigs (who knew) were just great.  They definately finished off my look. You knew what wigs would work for me, and I was pleasantly surprised by some of your picks.  In fact, the one I chose was one I probably wouldn't have tried on, and I'm so glad you encouraged me to try a style I'd always wanted to see myself in and I love it.

Jane - Kelowna


 

My mom and sister wanted me to tell you how much they loved your personal service. This was hard on all of us, and I know they felt special to be a part of it.  I want others to know about your great service, and if I can do anything to help spread the word of Bloom and what you do, I will!!

Thanks again Laurie, and I wish you the greatest of successes,


L.M. Penticton


 

To the ladies from Bloom Wigs,

Just a quick note to tell you how much I love my new wigs and my baseball cap with hair.  They're so cute, and I am looking forward to seeing myself with my new looks. You both were such a help to me, and had some really cute styles that were perfect for my age group.  I never knew that I'd be able to find a style that mirrored what I had before I lost my hair.  The streaks in the hair were just what I wanted, and the baseball cap will make going to the store or my sons soccer games so easy. I highly reccommend your service to others going through treatment, and I know others will come away from their appointments as happy with their purchases as I was.

Thank you, S.P. Naramata


 

To Whom It May Concern:

We recently were referred to Bloom In-Home Wig Service.  I am a special education teacher at Princess Margaret Secondary School in Penticton.  One of my students has worn a wig most of her life, as she was involved in an accident as a baby and has burn scars over most of her body, and has no hair.

The wig she previously owned was in bad shape.  Her family struggles financially and would not be able to buy her a new one.  Because she will graduate this year, we wanted her to look nice for all the special events that would be taking place.  The Rotary Club generously offered to pay for a new wig.

From the very initial contact, Laurie Bruce was on board.  She was committed to finding the perfect wig for this special person.  Laurie and her partner, Valerie Andersen, came to our school with an amazing assortment of wigs.  They were enthusiastic, kind and very professional.  They took our advice, listened to our student and delivered a product that looks stunning.  The wig looks like real hair and is a style that is appropriate for the student's age, face and body type.  As if this wasn't enough, Laurie and Valerie offered to provide us with the wig, a special ball cap/wig combination and shampoo kits at cost.  That generosity was unexpected but greatly appreciated.

I would not hesitate in recommending Bloom In-Home Wig Service should you need to purchase a wig.  I am sure you will be as pleased as we are.  For our student, this has become a life altering experience.


 

Dear Bloom Ladies,

 

My brother and I would like to express our thanks for your time and attention helping our mother find the perfect wig (we love it, she looks fantastic) plus  the sleep cap and easy-to-tie scarves.  As we both live in Alberta, it has been hard to always be there for Mom when she needs us.  This is why I was so happy to discover your website and wonderful service.  It was ideal that you would go to her home in Vernon, and she told us how she felt very comfortable and well looked after by you ladies.  We all highly recommend your business now and feel lucky to have found Bloom's service to take care of our mother so kindly and well in our  absence.

 

Thanks again.

C. Adams - Calgary

 


I felt compelled to write about the service these ladies provided for me. It was wonderful, and I really felt they listened to me about what I was looking for, along with hair styles I hadn't even considered.

I live in a very rural area, but they had no problem with that and promptly arrived on time!

What they brought was amazing.  Totes full of all different styles of wigs, and lots of cute hats and scarves. There was lots to choose from, but it didn't take me long to find the one that was right for me.

I love my new wig and can't say enough about how much better I feel. Thanks Laurie and Val.

I wanted other women who are going through hair loss, to know that there is help out there. Val was a terrific help to me and really knows her stuff.  It's difficult to let others see you at your most vulnerable, but she was so caring and professional, I want everyone to know this girl will be able to help you!!  She has a large selection of goods and really takes the time to show you everything she has.  I never felt rushed or pressured, the appointment just went at it's own pace.  Of course, I found the hair that was definately me, and I'm so happy.

 

Thank you Bloom Wigs!!

Hello!  I would like to tell you my experience with Val and Laurie and their in-home wig service. I had previously gone to a hairdresser to get a wig due to the complete loss of my hair from chemo and it was a difficult experience. I did not enjoy the very short amount of time she would give me nor the proper instruction on care of wigs etc. I tell you this because I want to impress upon anyone that is in that vulnerable state that these ladies are your prayers answered! They are soooo accommodating and super nice ladies.

As the website says, they come to your home with a supply of wigs that is incredible and scarves, hats, turbans, swim caps, eyebrows, eyelashes, little things for attaching these things... just about anything you can think of and NOOOOO... they don't charge extra nor do they rush you to make a decision. My girlfriends were also there for moral support and made this a very enjoyable experience during a time that is not very nice. This such a wonderful way to relax and be able to choose from their fabulous collection...and I highly recommend it to anyone that would like privacy and selection when choosing any one of their options.

Sincerely,  Annette from Osoyoos
