Our experience with medical hair loss has made us experts in understanding your immediate need for comfort and well-being.

Private Consultations Available

Deanna Bell-Fast started in the wig business in 2004 and has since received extensive training and certification in the field. She opened her business in Chatham in June, 2009. A hair stylist since 1995, she credits her first few wig clients with filling her need to help others. That’s when she knew she had found her calling. She works with cancer patients and others with illnesses or conditions that cause hair loss, as well as those who just choose to wear hair. Due to the nature of the business, confidentiality and privacy are very important.

The calm and tranquil atmosphere at Saffron Alternative Hair Designs makes for a comfortable consultation. Saffron carries a wide variety of stylish, synthetic and human hair wigs. From short to long, blond to brunette there is a natural looking style to suit anyone. Deanna tries to keep prices as affordable as possible for her clients. A fair amount of stock is kept on hand, but any special orders can usually be done within 2-14 days. With the purchase comes instructions on maintenance. The special products needed for brushing and shampooing the wigs are available here as well. Email contact is always offered to the clients in case questions or problems arise making her easily accessible. Wearing a wig isn’t something most people ever imagine having to deal with, but Alternative Hair Designs inc. is available to help you learn and adjust to this change and instill the confidence back in you, that you had with your own hair. * Article Courtesy of the Chatham Daily News.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I went to Deanna at a very difficult time in my life. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by this young woman of incredible empathy and energy to an amazing environment. We spent the time selecting my hair prosthesis, fondly known in my circle as ‘Lola,’ amidst tears and laughter. She was respectful of my circumstances. She was professional in her provision of service and product. The product is amazing, and I strongly recommend Saffron and its’ owner.
