Brooklyn wig shop provides women a fashionable way to express themselves

Posted: Updated:
CROWN HEIGHTS -

A Brooklyn woman is at the forefront of a movement to provide married Jewish women with fashionable and natural-looking wigs.

Zelda Volkov got married 19, and when she went to her mom's wig provider, she says she walked out feeling like a different person, and not in a good way.

That's when she understood just how important her hair was to her identity. Volkov later opened Zelda Hair, which has become a one-stop shop for wigs, though it started as a place for Jewish women to buy their "sheitel." Now, the store attracts all kinds of customers -- whether it be cancer patients women with alopecia and more.

Volkov started traveling to Ukraine to source the hair to get a variety of natural hair shades and textures. She says she is proud of the fact that her business helps women feel like themselves.

The store also has an in-house stylist and colorist to make any alterations.
