Hope For Hair

Hope For HairTangie Warren is a native of Hertford, NC. From a very early age, she dreamed of being a hairstylist and salon owner. That dream and the love of hair care was imparted in her by the memories that she has of her mother as she provided hair care services to all the neighborhood children.

The transition into the hair care business was a natural progression for Tangie. She attended Carolina Beauty College in Durham, NC specializing in the art of healthy hair. For over 16 years Tangie has been providing her clients with cut and color services, but her main goal is to provide individualized attention with a focus on total hair care.

Tangie has a passion for hair and does it from her heart. She is also a firm believer that to whom much is given much is required; therefore, she feels that she must give back to the community. Tangie uses her gift to provide services through the Hope for Hair with Elegance Foundation, which is a non-profit organization created to provide hair enhancements to patients battling cancer.

Hailing from a long line of hair care professionals, Antonia George is from Elizabethtown, NC (near Fayetteville, NC). She has been a stylist for over 16 years and attended Vance-Granville Community College.
Her goal is to help people achieve the look they want and help them feel good about themselves. She prides herself in reaching out to broken women and helping them rebuild their self-image by changing the way they see themselves. One of the ways she does this is by giving each lady a unique style while maintaining or restoring the health of their hair.

Antonia knew since she was a little girl that she wanted to be a cosmetologist. She loves relaxing and coloring hair. She is intrigued by the straightening process and being the agent of change that gets the hair from one state (unmanageable) to the next (gorgeous) hair.

Antonia is now committed to donating free services to women in the community that have been victims of cancer and have lost their hair because of it.

Hope For Hair with Elegance was developed to provide hair enhancement products for women who are cancer survivors. Operating out of the Essential Elegance Hair Boutique located at 5114 Revere Road in Durham, the purpose of this foundation is to restore a sense of dignity, beauty, faith, and hope for women experiencing hair loss due to the ramifications associated with Cancer and its harsh regimens of treatments such as Chemotherapy and Radiation.

Coping with hair loss is just one of the many traumatic effects of cancer that patients face. In addition to enormous financial burdens, there are emotional and physical transformations that the patients must endure. Tangie Warren and Antonia George has answered their calling and uses a genuine compassion for serving to help make life easier for others in need.

This organization provides hair enhancement products free of charge to female cancer survivors. Working in concert with their doctors, Hope for Hair With Elegance equips these brave women with customized products suitable for their individual needs.

Individuals who qualify for the services provided by Hope For Hair are anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and receiving treatment for the illness. These services are provided at no cost to the client. The wigs provided are ordered and later distributed to the clients.
