While Breast Cancer Awareness Month is over, there’s a program in Everett for women suffering from all types of cancer that is going strong all year round. For the last year and a half Jessee Skittrall and his staff at Swanq Style Studio in central Everett have been providing free wigs and more to cancer patients in the Everett area.

“It’s our way to give back,” said Skittrall. “A woman’s image is often tied directly to their hair.”

Skittrall says Swanq is the official second hand wig bank for both the American Cancer Society and Providence in Everett. They offer complimentary shave downs and wig selection with fitting in a private studio within the salon.

“We also offer makeup services and an ear to listen as ladies go through their selection and fitting,” said Jessee. “It can be a very emotional process.”

Swanq accepts donations of used wigs and often families of past clients donate wigs in honor of their loved one to keep the program going. The wigs are cleaned and restyled.

If you know someone in Everett or the surrounding area who could either use this free service or would like to help, you can contact Jessee Skittrall directly at 425-438-8737. You can also visit their website here.
