Quality Products and Services

If you have suffered from medical hair loss, I want you to know that there is hope and that you can look just as good or, in my experience, better than before your hair loss, whatever the illness.

Let me take all your ‘hair’ worries away.  I am fully trained in fitting, cutting and styling wigs and hair pieces for women and children. The service I provide is not only professional and totally confidential; I really do care about the way you can look. I want you to feel relaxed, informed and leave my clinic feeling totally empowered and positive.  Bring along a friend or family member (or both!). I will spend as much time with you as you need.  I can also provide you with lots of tips, dos and don’ts, along with information on nutrition, government benefits, subsidies and lots more. I provide a 7 day a week service and will always work around your needs. I also provide a full after care service, so if you have any questions at all just give me a call or send me an e-mail.


The new salon at Glamorous Butterfly opened its doors in February 2016. It is beautifully decorated and totally private. There are disabled access and facilities as well as parking to the front and rear.  To keep 100% privacy and confidentiality we do not have any walk-in appointments and ask for our customers to pre-book their consultations.

Vanessa offers a fully professional and trained wig fitting service and has an extensive array of the world’s most beautiful wigs available to purchase. She also offers a semi and fully custom made service with prices upon request. Hair enhancers and toppers are also available in salon and will be fully fitted and trimmed to suit. Glamorous Butterfly provides a wig washing, styling and reconditioning services which features products such as Olaplex and Neal & Wolf. A custom colouring service is also available on wigs purchased from Glamorous Butterfly.

Glamorous Butterfly is proud to announce that the salon is part of the MyNewHair organisation which was founded by Trevor Sorbie. Any NHS patients that receive wig vouchers can come along to see Vanessa and have total peace of mind that they will go away with an amazing wig.


Eyebrows are not only nature’s way of protecting our eyes, but they actually frame our faces; your eyebrows are one of your most important assets in terms of your looks. The right brow shape and colour not only flatter and frame your face, but can take years off you. Since its launch in 2010, I have always worn Beautiful Brows make-up. Believe me, I have tried and tested all brow enhancers on the market and I always go back to this product. Its so easy to apply, whether you have brows or not and will last all day. I even use it as a high pigment eye shadow and liner. Beautiful brows comes in many forms from the full kit (which includes eyebrow powder, three eyebrow shapes, duo applicator brush, eyebrow highlighter, highlighter brush, soft grip tweezers, magnifying mirror) to the individual powders. The powders come in 5 different shades, there is one to suit everyone. Each kit comes with three different eyebrow stencils which are so easy to use and are great for absolute beginners, if you have poor eyesight or problems with motor skills. 

Coming soon... I plan to train and practice in semi permanent make-up for brows, lash line and lips so watch this space for more updates on this.

Wigs and hair pieces

I supply not only the finest quality wigs but the most up to date styles and colours. Technology within the wig industry is changing rapidly and I am always keeping up with this from the new rooted colours, ombre shades and cyber hair. I have colour rings and samples of all the hair pieces, so you can feel the quality of the hair, match to your own colour or go for something completely different. I will provide you with easy to use care and washing instructions so no need to worry about the maintenance of your piece.  I offer total support to all my clients and i am available to talk to whenever you feel you need advice or guidance. I also help transgender people who are undergoing their transition from male to female so that they can look and feel their best in their beautiful new wig.
