Hair Stylist and Store Owner Creates Opportunity to Receive Free Wigs in Tennessee


Markeisha Wardell is the owner of Rose Beauty Bar and Markeisha Rose Extensions. Wardell shared her desire to make people feel beautiful through styled natural hair, wigs and hairpieces.

“I love taking people from their basic daily routine and then showing them who they can be.” she said.

Wardell recognizes that not everyone who comes to her store feels comfortable in a shared space, so she created a special room to make those who have experienced hair loss feel comfortable.

Wardell also acknowledged the financial disparities that are present. “Not everyone who came would necessarily be able to afford a quality wig, because we make very high-end quality wigs from 400 and up, you know?” she said.

“So it really hurt my heart that I couldn’t give everyone a wig…your hair is your crown.”

This led Wardell to start a non-profit organization called Select Your Crown that would help provide free wigs to people who have experienced hair loss due to conditions such as alopecia or treatments such as chemotherapy.

Markeisha Wardell invites people to support Select Your Crown through the non-profit organization’s website,

In an effort to combat this inaccessibility, Wardell has announced the “Select Your Crown” event for October 24 – an event that will offer custom wigs, or what the store owner calls “crowns”, for 100 women and children who have lost their hair. .

“It’s for this woman trying to find herself and trying to earn back her trust…” she said.
