The soft-based “Elan” style provides superior comfort with the ultimate in security. Elan models set the standard for excellence which all others have tried to achieve. Here’s why: The unsurpassed realism of the Elan surgical silicone skin recreates the appearance and feel of the human scalp. A specially treated liner improves comfort. We use only the finest, hand-selected, 100% European hair, selected to match the color and texture you desire. A laced front hairline improves the ability for styling, for contouring in the temples, and for a more customized fit. Each Elan hair addition is handcrafted from more than 140,000 hairs inserted one at a time, to create a look that nature intended.
Heather, a Vacuum Fit Customer: “I started having hair loss at age six. At age eight, it was coming out in patches, then at 14, I lost it all. My self-esteem was damaged because others did not understand my condition, and I was teased a lot as a child. I wore synthetic wigs and cheaper versions of hairpieces ordered through mail-order catalogs. Then Dr. Barbara Drucker, a dermatologist in Santa Cruz, gave me information about Reallusions, and I called for a consultation. I was very comfortable with Julie, seeing the sample pieces and the products she had to offer. I was relieved, excited and so happy because I felt so comfortable with the atmosphere in her salon. No one has ever noticed that I’m wearing a hairpiece. Even hairstylists compliment me on my color and my hair. This has changed my life. With my vacuum piece, I can swim and drive in a convertible and feel free.”
Silvia, a Vacuum Fit Customer: “I have Alopecia Totalis, an autoimmune disease. My own body causes the hair loss. None of the treatments offered by dermatologists have helped in the long term. It’s been difficult watching my hair fall out; it makes me uncomfortable at work and in social situations. I covered my problem with hats and scarves. A coworker shared her own experience, and recommended Julie. She was sensitive, answered my questions, discussed different options, and even offered to put me in touch with other women in similar situations. I was initially suspicious about the cost and quality, of how it would change my appearance, or how much time it would involve every morning. I would encourage anyone going through this to consult Julie sooner rather than later. I never felt any pressure, and she gave me as much time as I needed. When I was ready, I knew she was the one to design my hairpiece. I regularly get compliments, friends tell me it looks very natural. I forget I have it on, it’s already part of my routine, easier than styling my own hair when I had it.”
The Custom Integration design, unlike a standard full “wig”, allows your own hair to be brushed through it’s web-like base to blend it with the added hair to achieve the desired look. Custom Integration is recommended for women with thin hair who would like to add fullness and length, and to women with an eye to fashion to change their style and color. It is also the preferred alternative to hair extensions for those with fragile hair. Because it is designed specifically for you, new hair can be added to areas that require special attention.
The Salon is a Certified Monterey Bay Green Business, which means that I employ Pollution Prevention practices, conserve energy, water and other resources, as well as minimize waste—all in the effort to protect our environment.
I believe in being environmentally conscious, in practicing sustainability, and in giving back to society—both personally and professionally. Emerald Iguana Salon gives back to our local community and its various organizations by participating in fundraising activities throughout the year, but our two primary support activities both occur in October:
WomenCARE--Emerald Iguana has been giving back since 1994, helping to raise funds for this local non-profit organization that provides support for women undergoing the battle against a variety of cancers. The Salon gives money and donates giveaways at their annual bowling event. #StrikeOutAgainstCancer--Emerald Iguana donates gifts and services to various schools and causes in our community throughout the year based on the belief that as you come forward to share your gifts, you inspire others to do the same.
As the Emerald Iguana Salon owner/stylist, I credit my wide range of knowledge and education as key to my success. I am passionate about my craft as a hairstylist and colorist. Working with a variety of companies over the years. Hairstory New Wash and Davines, which are both environmentally conscious product lines that care about the world we live in. I have years of experience working with hair of all types and texture—fine, thick, straight, wavy, curly, ethnic, and more. I will recommend your home care needs to keep your hair healthy and manageable until your next visit. And if you are one of the many women on the Central Coast facing the challenge of thinning hair due to natural causes or as a result of chemo therapy or radiation treatments, I have a menu of natural hair solutions I can personalize to meet your specific needs. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my passion for my craft with you!
