history of our store??as seen in

article by alison macgregor, the gazette march 10, 2012

montreal - it’s the beginning of a new chapter for one of canada’s oldest high-end wig retailers.

with a fourth generation of the seminaro family now helping to run louis xiv ltd., the company has just moved from dated facilities on ste. catherine st. e. to a new outlet a few blocks west in the gay village.

a lot has happened to the wig business over the half-century that the seminaros have been operating in montreal.

back in 1963, when the firm began operating out of an apartment, wigs were considered to be a fashion accessory that women would change to co-ordinate with each outfit. a stylish woman didn’t mind that it was apparent she was wearing a wig or hair piece.

“they had wigs in many colours,??owner rosina seminaro said. “a woman would change her wig when she changed her dress. it was like going to buy candy.??

nowadays, wigs are more often worn to create an illusion of beautiful, natural hair.

gorgeous, thick, lustrous hair is considered in many cultures to be a symbol of youth, health and social status.

that link between lush locks and youth was reinforced during a recent visit to the shop when a thirty something model donned a stunning wig a shade lighter than her natural dark brown hair.

“it’s crazy,??exclaimed sophie leblanc when she looked in the mirror.

“she looks like a teenager,??seminaro said, laughing.

the first generation of seminaro’s started in the wig industry after rosina seminaro urged her family to try their hand in the business, she and her younger sister santina guglielmetti, a partner in the business, recalled during an interview in an office where walls were stacked from floor to ceiling with wigs. their mother and grandmother, immigrants from italy, had just sold a restaurant and were eager to get into a new line of business. seminaro noticed that wigs were trendy and urged her mother to try selling them.

“i said: ‘if grandma and you put the money together, i think you can do something,’ ??she recalled.

the business quickly grew by word of mouth and the company moved into its first storefront on the corner of st. denis and ste. catherine sts. in 1963 before moving in 1975. as teenagers, seminaro and her sister would go to the boutique after school and hang out with their mother, grandmother and customers to learn the trade. “i used to come after school and eat french fries and watch the hairdresser,??guglielmetti said.

“i took over the hairdressing of the wigs ??it’s 44 years that i’ve been combing the wigs.??

today, the sisters run the store with the help of 10 employees, while seminaro’s son, among other family members, is a silent partner.

wigs and hair pieces have been used since ancient times to disguise hair loss, for religious and cultural reasons, for convenience or simply for fashion. today, they are heavily used in the fashion, tv, film and performing arts industries. wigs are also becoming fashionable again as an easy way to alter one’s appearance without resorting to a drastic haircut, hair dye or time-consuming styling.

much of the growth in the business over the last two decades has been fuelled by a proliferation of celebrities and fashion models that have admitted using ??or are rumoured to use ??hair extension and wigs for special events or in their daily lives. some hollywood insiders have called the widespread use of wigs and hairpieces as one of the industry’s best kept secrets. singer and actress beyoncé knowles, for example, is rumoured to have a wig collection worth more than $1 million.

and the trend is becoming more mainstream as regular folks increasingly view wigs, extensions and hair pieces as a simple and convenient way to have beautiful hair or to quickly change the way they look.

the wig and hair goods industry, a u.s.-based clearing house for industry information, estimates that the wig and hair goods sector in the united states and canada to be worth well over a billion dollars annually.

rising demand has even helped fuel a string of human hair thefts from hair salons in the united states, the new york times reported last year.

seminaro says wig usage is much more widespread than many people realize. natural hair thinning with age or hair loss due to illnesses such as alopecia, cancer and autoimmune diseases is common and some women and men choose to disguise such conditions with a wig or hairpiece, which can be undetectable if chosen with care, she said.

although many of her clients work in the arts, others are regular people who wear wigs for convenience and fashion, she said; some women even take wigs on vacation so they don’t have to worry about styling their hair after spending the day at the beach.

still, a quality wig that feels good and looks natural remains an investment, with prices ranging from $90 for a basic synthetic wig to over a thousand dollars for a high-quality, human-hair product.

“for me, there are two kinds of wigs ??the wigs you wear for halloween and those you can wear every day,??she said.

clip-in hairpieces, which can be added to a wearer’s own hair ??or to a wig ??to create more volume, are priced from $40 to approximately $250, she explained.

most human hair used in wigs comes from india, china or europe, seminaro said.

「景気の回復基調を裏付ける形」って、給与や雇用の面から見たら針小棒大もいいところです。貧者を苦しめ、富者を優遇し、給与を抑制して雇用を非正規にして社会保障を削減して生きにくくする社会において、どうして悪影響を緩和できるのか、さっぱりわかりません。そして クロエ オードパルファム 30ml Dropper Stopper、そのような残酷な社会がどうして持続可能なのか、さっぱりわかりません。 そして、年に河野談話が出され、日本政府は教科書に慰安婦について記載することなどを約束し、年から記載されるようになりました。しかし、年に「日本の前途と教科書問題を考える若手議員の会」が発足し、教科書から「慰安婦」の記述を排斥し、吉田証言を撤回することを求めました安倍晋三氏は年に代議士になりました。当時は細川政権が誕生し、自民党が下野した時期でした クロエ Marcie Davis 1985。 あのですね、警察にあなたが目をつけられないのは、悪いことをしてないことに加え、あなたがいいことをあまりしてないからです金儲けのためでも選挙目当てでもない、純然たる消費者運動や冤罪に対する運動でも真面目に本気でやって御覧なさい、たちまち下手糞な変装をした秘密警察(公安警察)が様子探りにやってきます変な譬えですが、体内細菌がそっと我々の健康を守ってくれるように、いろいろな市民運動家のおかげで、権力犯罪が暴かれたり、冤罪について無罪判決がおりたり、食品の安全が守られたり、税金の無駄遣いが暴かれたりするのです確かに警察も社会の安全を守ってくれます クロエ オードパルファム 50ml Is How Many Cups Sugar。お世話になっています。でも、強い薬が、良い細菌も悪い細菌も区別せず、かたっぱしから殺してしまうように、警察は「テロリストもアカも市民運動も、現体制に不満のある奴は全部危険分子だ」と考えているとしか思えないのです市民運動家も、警察とは別の方法で社会の安全を守るために頑張っているのですが、どうも、わからないらしいのですいっしょに、企業が廃棄物を不法投棄していないか、見張ってほしいのに クロエ Love 香水 Movie Mistakes、警察はこちらを見張りにくるので、「あなたは、正義の味方か悪の使者か」と言いたくなりますこの現状で、共謀罪なんかできたら、体内バランスならぬ社会内バランスが崩れます。甘くとろけるようなキャンディーカラーのリップスティック「ヴォリュプテキャンディー」からは、優しいサーモンピンクの「No.18 メロウクレモンテイヌ」、キュートでジューシーなピンクの「No.19 エキゾチックピタヤ」の2色がラインナップまた クロエ Bag Man Video、なめらかなテクスチャーのリップスティック「ルージュ ヴォリュプテ シャイン」からは、全4色が登場する。コーラルピンクの「No.30 コーラルインジニアス」、ベビーピンクの「No.31 ローズイノセント」は、ピュアな印象でデートにもぴったり。さらにストロベリーピンクの「No クロエ エテル バッグ Ace Loans.32 ピンクインディペンデント」や、官能的なピンクの「No.33 フューシャインテンス」は、いつもと一味違った大人の表情を演出できそうだ。 他にも個性的な面々が揃い、こうして西浦高校野球部が発足したオレらのエースは暗くて卑屈。勝つために、弱気なエースのために。行け、オレら クロエ Marcie Leads 4 Life!。 「天聴に達する」と戦前は言ったものです。2.26事件の際に使われた表現です。「知って頂きたい」というのは、そのあとの働きかけを期待しているからです。 【ワシントン共同】米政府高官は日、米軍普天間飛行場(沖縄県宜野湾市)移設問題について「同盟は基地の場所などの問題よりもはるかに大きなものだ」と指摘、「日米同盟に危機は存在しない」と述べた。一部メディアとの会見で語った日に日米安全保障条約が改定周年を迎えるのを前に、普天間移設問題が日米関係に悪影響を及ぼすことを回避し、沈静化を図った形ただし高官は普天間のキャンプ・シュワブ沿岸部(同県名護市)への移設が「最善の選択肢」として「こうした考えは日本政府当局者にも長年にわたって共有されてきた」と強調し クロエ Lily In At&t 993 Corded 2-line Speakerphone、既存の日米合意の継続性が保たれるよう日本側にくぎを刺した政権交代後には「選挙公約と統治の現実との間で、折り合いをつけていかなければならない」と高官は指摘。鳩山由紀夫首相が日に「日米同盟をさらに深化させていくことが肝要だ」などと発言したことを「政権発足直後には聞くことができなかったかもしれない」と評価し、米側との協議を重ねていく過程での日本側の歩み寄りに期待感を示した。

louis xiv’s new location has more than a thousand wigs for women, men and children in stock, with a special section in the basement set aside for wigs reserved for opera and film productions.

“you’re not going to find anybody who has my stuff,??seminaro said as she led a visitor down a flight of stairs to the basement.

primarily a wholesaler, the business sells wigs to retail outlets across the country. it also serves members of the public but by appointment only. the store is discreet and serves only one retail customer at a time for privacy reasons, since many clients ??particularly those with illnesses like cancer, don’t want to be disturbed while choosing a hairpiece.

seminaro declined to provide financial earnings information about the privately owned firm.

among the store’s clients are the opéra de montréal and the cirque du soleil, as well theatre, film and television productions, fashion shows and photo shoots, and well-known actors and actresses. seminaro said she particularly enjoys fitting wigs on people who have experienced hair loss due to illnesses.

she recommends that cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy come in for a wig-fitting before their hair falls out.

“sometimes they wait because they think that their hair hasn’t fallen out yet,??she said, “and then it does and they panic.??
