Have You Met Alan Eaton?

Envy Wigs is very proud to have internationally known designer Alan Eaton at the helm. As a stylist, designer, and consultant to some of the most prestigious names in the wig industry, Alan is recognized as one of the trade’s leading iconoclasts. Envy Wigs is Alan’s latest endeavor.

After spending over 20 years as a stylist, Alan began to look for new opportunities. Alan had done volunteer work with cancer patients, and hair loss is a common side effect of cancer treatments. Our hair and its style are a part of who we are, and losing it brings significant challenges. How we look affects how we feel, and vice versa. To this day, Alan has a relationship with the American Cancer Society, working with their wig bank.

Alan designs wigs that look and feel natural, and they are comfortable to wear. He is a pioneer in coloration, a leader in the technology of cap construction and fit, and is the first designer to bring lace-front technology to ready-made wigs. His innovative use of fibers creates styles that look, feel, and behave just like real hair. His repertoire even includes specialized hair care and styling products. It is that innovative thinking that makes Alan Eaton one of the most recognized designers in the industry. His creations are popular among consumers of all ages and cultures. We turn to look at someone with gorgeous hair, and great men have been seduced and fallen to its beauty. Alan designs wigs with that same appeal.

Alan began Envy Wigs in Miami, Florida, where some of his administrative functions remain. Wanting to return to his roots, though, in 2012 he moved back to Indiana to be near his family. When asked what he feels passionate about, Alan responded: “My family; my friends; Envy Wigs, my business partner, and our employees; and my faith.” As an interesting side note, the names of all the styles in Alan’s collections come from his grandmothers, mother, aunts, sisters, nieces, and friends, as well as those of his employees and his friends.

With Envy Wigs, you can take advantage of Alan’s vast knowledge and expertise to bring out your style.

The secret to a perfectly natural look is a slightly imperfect part, says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Gently reposition strands along the part line or snip a few wispy pieces using manicure scissors—AND some restraint—for a slightly messy part that looks all your own.”

For first-time wig wearers, “The trick is to stay close to the color of your eyebrows,” notes Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. If not, “then consider dyeing your eyebrows to match your chosen wig color.”

“Few people know that wigs can be styled just like natural hair—and that most hairstylists are happy to give your wig a custom cut,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Trimming bangs and shaping to your exact specifications can help make your wig indecipherable from your own natural hair.”

“The “Grey Hair, Don’t Care” trend—which saw women embracing their grey—is stronger than ever. And not just with the over-50 crowd. “Silver is chic, edgy and looks great on almost anyone,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton, who offers nearly every EnvyHair™ and synthetic style in 3 multi-dimensional grey shades.”
