After being diagnosed with Breast Cancer and knowing I would lose my hair, Vanessa made a very difficult journey far less painful.
She is so welcoming, listens to you, provides excellent advice and I feel so confident in my new 'hair'.
Lovingly named Betty!
Thank you Vanessa and Glamorous Butterfly. Not sure what I would have done without you!

I can’t really Thank this lovely lady enough. I entered the salon feeling self conscious, frumpy and a bit out of my depth and left feeling amazing xx
Alopecia took away my confidence and self worth and Vanessa gave me that back.
I love my Virgin Russian HH wig, it’s truly beautiful x
Thank you

Just wanted to say thank you again for everything, but saying thank you really doesn't seem enough. I was feeling a bit ropey yesterday so hopefully next time I see you if I need a trim or something, I'll come near the end of a cycle.
You'll never know how much of a boost you've given me and I'm so thankful you were there, and right on my doorstep! You are such an amazing person and I feel so lucky to have met you. Hope you have a fantastic holiday! Thank you again 😘😘Xxx

Firstly, Vanessa is so professional and lovely and made me feel totally at ease. I’ve recently lost my hair due to chemotherapy and have always taken pride in my hair, so when I knew I was going to lose it, my heart sank. I told Vanessa I wanted a wig that wouldn’t look like a wig, one that would look just like my own natural hair. My wig is perfect and I absolutely love it. I love it so much that I went back today and bought another wig, but a completely different style so that I can change wigs when I felt like it. I’m over the moon with my second wig, too. I can’t recommend Glamourous Butterfly enough xxx

This inspirational lady is amazing. She made us feel so relaxed and wonderfully special. We travvelled for four hours to see her and I must say it was totally worth it. Her knowledge and talent is outstanding. She knows exactly what suits and finds the perfect hair for you. Thank you Vanessa, we will definitely be returning xxx

This lady, Vanessa Cowan, is an absolute god send. This woman’s heart is definitely in the right place & I would recommend her to anyone. Since starting with alopecia nearly over a year ago, last week was my first time experiencing wearing a wig and trying on a wide variety. She’s so comforting and will reassure you with any queries or pending questions you have. Her customer service is excellent, she takes her time to listen to what you have to say and she’ll give her best, honest opinion and advice. She helped me choose my very first wig; which is absolutely gorgeous, I must say! It fits comfortably, it’s 80% human hair and 20% synthetic, the warm/ashy tones of the hair match perfectly to my skin tone and the density of the wig is low, therefore matches with my facial and head shape, the lady definitely deserves the recognition for her work. I would advise anyone to come to her for hair pieces and wigs. She has definitely helped me put that smile back on my face & gained my confidence back. Time to hold my head up high & show off this beautiful wig, all thanks to Vanessa.

I have just bought my third wig from Vanessa which arrived today and as always I love it! I think what sets Vanessa apart is her amazing service! She will happily answer any questions, give her opinions and advise based on you and what you are looking for. Vanessa helped me choose my latest wig whilst answering numerous questions and showing me loads of photos and once I had chosen I got the wig in the post practically the next day. Would give 10 stars if I could.

What a wonderful service and a beautiful lady Vaneassa is. I lost my hair due to chemo for breast cancer I was so depressed and felt totally disheartened. When I lost my hair I got a few people giving me advice on where to go for wigs and I chose Vanessa and thank god I did! I got an amazing wig (Kylie), so much like my own hair so light to wear 100% real hair. I love it and when I needed it cut just one phone call and Vanessa booked me in and cut it. I felt wonderful, somehow a real woman again X thank you Vanessa and I know you’ll be hearing from me again xx

Vanessa has worked wonders on a wig of mine that badly needed some TLC. Apart from knowing what she’s doing, she has that added advantage (if there is one in having alopecia!) of knowing exactly what’s required from a wig that’s being used more like a prosthesis than a cosmetic or short term fashion item. She really listened to what I wanted and gave me expert advice on aftercare too.
— Suz Brownlie
Thank you so much, Vanessa, for cutting my beautiful Kylie wig today. I bought from you a couple of weeks ago. Amazing to feel such customer service (I feel more like a friend than a customer). I can now continue chemotherapy with confidence knowing I look human again.

Just a quick note to thank you for all the help and advice you gave me when I came to see you for my new wig last Thursday. The wig we chose is great and thank you also for shaping and styling the one I brought with me. Although I am not looking forward to my chemo, the wigs will help me to get through it all. Hope to see you again when my hair has all gone so that you can help make some adjustments. And I’ll definitely take some of your cards with me when I go to the chemo sessions. Thanks again, your a star!

So a few of you may remember that I invited a very talented lady who specialises in alternative hair for Ladies and Children who have suffered with medical hair loss to appear as a guest blogger last week. I am of course talking about the gorgeous Vanessa Cowan @glamorousbutterfly76 . If you read our collaborative blog post you may remember me telling you that it looks like the cold cap has stopped working with this new chemotherapy treatment so I've been losing handfuls of hair and I'm not afraid to say that I've struggled with that over the last few weeks which is a completely normal reaction btw. It's traumatic and soul destroying and for me personally if I hadn't have found Vanessa I don't know what sort of state I'd be in.

I would like to introduce you all to my latest @glamorousbutterfly76 custom cut and coloured piece of alternative hair to add to my collection and, I mean, if you hadn't guessed from my photo, I absolutely love it. The difference between this hair and my other ones are that this is a lot less dense making it lighter and as I'm not someone who can comfortably walk around in headscarves and turbans it is just perfect to pop on and go about my everyday house chores and errands. I literally don't feel like I'm wearing anything where the cap is so comfortable and secure and the hair (which is human hair) is soft as silk. All of this was done with a few sad convos with Vanessa and she knew the perfect hair for me! She is such a talented, experienced, knowledgable and just god damn awesome all round lovely lady and once again she has managed to make me feel like I have myself back!

That's twice in one year @glamorousbutterfly76 ! You really are amazing!

I don’t think there are enough words to express how happy I am since seeing Vanessa on Saturday for my appointment.
Firstly, the support that I received before my appointment was amazing. We held a telephone consultation where I instantly knew that Vanessa was one very special lady, who completely understood what I needed from this experience. In the days leading up to my appointment, I had some questions which would help me to prepare myself beforehand, and Vanessa answered these within minutes; nothing was too much trouble.
On the day of my appointment, I was so excited and nervous all at the same time, but Vanessa instantly put me at ease and, once I sat in the chair and the fun of trying the wigs on began, my nerves disappeared, and I had so much fun. My biggest problem was deciding which beautiful wigs to choose from, as I loved every single one which Vanessa had selected for me.
Vanessa is so knowledgeable about every aspect of alternative hair, which fills me with so much confidence. Even all of the suitable styling products and hair products have been carefully selected by Vanessa, because she knows these are the best way to keep your hair looking at its best.
As with a lot of Vanessa’s clients, I brought my mum and auntie along with me, and Vanessa was only too happy to answer any questions that they had, and made them feel part of the process which I am really grateful for.
I travelled from Folkestone in South East Kent, which is nearly a 900 mile round trip, but I would do it again in a heartbeat, because I have not been able to wipe this smile off of my face ever since my custom coloured beautiful hair was popped on by Vanessa, and cut and styled to frame my face. I love both my wigs and the products that I came away with, and have found this whole process completely life-changing. Positivity and happiness is literally pouring out of me, which is something I haven’t felt for a long, long time.
If you are looking for ‘alternative hair’ and want the very best quality and service, I urge you to see Vanessa. You will not regret it and I’m sure, like many others, it will change your life for the better too!!
Thank you Vanessa, for being an absolute rockstar! You are amazing at what you do and deserve nothing but a lifetime of happiness and success. We are already planning our next trip up for my reconditioning treatment, but will definitely be staying a bit longer next time to make the most of what a beautiful place Cumbria is! Just stunning.

"I visited Vanessa even though I wasn't sure I wanted a wig, having lost my hair due to chemo . However as soon as I put it on I knew it was perfect for me. Vanessa was wonderful, explaining everything and was so reassuring and professional. The wig has boosted my confidence no end, I feel amazing and I'm sure it will help me on my road to recovery. I would happily recommend Vanessa to anyone."

Fantastic service! Vanessa is lovely. Travelled 3 hours to go here and wasn’t disappointed. Purely devoted to helping her customers and sufferers. Highly recommended. Thank you Vanessa xxxxxxx
— Ayva Krystina Brown
If I could give more than a 5* I most definitely would. What Vanessa does for people is over and above what you get from most wig suppliers and that’s because she completely understands the importance of what she does. Will 110% recommend people to contact her.
— Jack Jill
Superb customer service; in fact didn’t really feel like customers, we were all ladies having a girly treat, lovely lady, lovely place and our eyebrows are fabulous plus the stock of handmade turbans were very tempting and glamorous. Would recommend Glamorous Butterfly to everyone x
— Emmajayne Dockwray
Thank you so much for all your support the other day. It was an important day for me; it’s like the start of a new change in my life, I’m excited and scared at the same time! You are doing a great job, thanks again.
— IW
Amazing! Great products and advice. Would definitely recommend. Have had lots of lovely comments about my eyebrows since Vanessa sorted them out for me.
— Emma Craggs
Thank you, Vanessa, for looking after my mum today and helping her choose a lovely wig. Very professional service, would highly recommend.
— Noelle Craggs
My good friend Vanessa recommended Olaplex No3 when I told her about my brittle bleached hair. She gave me instructions on how to use it, it’s so easy and can describe it in one word...AMAZING!!! I had only used it once and could see and feel the difference straight away, my hair was so soft and so much easier to manage, I’m now addicted!! Thank you so much Glamorous Butterfly for making me feel glamorous!!!
— Lisa Martin
