I would like to say a big Thank You to Shelley who answered my very early morning stress call via message. She made me feel very calm and comfortable as to what I was wanting and exactly needed and rang Tanya from Stones Corner to organize for me to meet up with her for a fitting.
It just so happened that the hair topper with colour was perfect to cover the area I needed and made my locks look gorgeous and thick once again……my confidence and self esteem has made me feel I could conquer the world now.
Thank you ladies you are both the most wonderful caring people with beautiful smiles. Thank you for your wonderful advise and making me feel comfy whilst at the Stones Corner store.
Feel really blessed to be a Starkles wearing girl 🙂 Ellie, Brisbane QLD
I am contacting you to provide positive feedback regarding Vicki at Stones Corner. She was a wealth of knowledge and made choosing a wig ready for my chemo hair loss a good experience that must occur in a bad situation. She was informative and patient with me trying on a few varieties before making my final choice. Thanks for employing such understanding, supportive, knowledgeable and positive staff. Lesley T

Julie, Thank you so much for the great service you gave me with finding the right wig. It was so lovely to meet you. Thank you also for the wonderful quick delivery with the caps. You are very special ladies. Jacky, Brisbane QLD
Dear workshop team,
Time has passed since the Look Good Feel Good workshop on 17 July at the Mater Hospital, but I wanted to write and say thank you so much for all the time, effort and love that you put into the workshop.
I heard about it when talking to another patient in the waiting room at the oncologists….I was told it was not to be missed workshop – and that is so true. I have since recommended it to a couple of other women I have met who are also going through cancer treatment.
I also so greatly appreciated all the little gifts (yes, my love language is gifts). They made the day that little extra special. Please convey my heartfelt appreciation to all those who donated items. Also, thank you to the lovely lady who brought in our lunch.
We all had such a wonderful time at the workshop at the Mater workshop. We had many laughs, encouraged one another and were put at ease with the graciousness, love and skills of the ladies who took the workshop.
You three ladies are sooooo appreciated. My pics will continue to tell the story long after the workshop has finished and it will be one of my treasured memories and highlights of going through my cancer treatment.
I was amazed at the wigs (so real) and smart head gear that was available for women. Lovely, lovely, lovely! An I walked away with skin care and make-up skills. Yes, every day I have continued to do my eyebrows the way we were shown at the workshop – Looking good! Feeling good!
Ladies – you are such a blessing to us going through treatment. Narelle
Shelley, I received the hair scrunchie’s yesterday, almost perfect match. It’s hard to pick correct colour off screen, anyway they are perfect thank you so much for your speedy service and updates. I don’t do much online shopping but if every company was like Starkles it would be a pleasure to shop and I will shop with you again. Once again many thanks. Loretta Melbourne
I just wanted to thank you and pass on the compliments that I have received. I have been asked on multiple times …”So is that your real hair?” “OMG where did you get that colour?” “What …did you just say it was not your real hair!” So thank you for looking after me and the product and cutting my fringe. J.Reed
Dear Julie, I came into your store yesterday with my good friend Maria. Can I just say how wonderful your service was. You immediately put me at ease and I felt like we were old friends. Your knowledge of your products and how they would suit me was amazing. I came away feeling happy rather then depressed. I wore my wig at home and my brother did not even notice! When I pointed it out to him he said “but its just like you always have your hair”. How delighted I was to hear that!! Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the wonderful work that you do in making the experience for women like myself fun and less stressful. You mentioned that you were thinking of offering a hair cutting service, I think that that would be a positive addition to what you offer. I was dreading the thought of sitting in the main street of Coolangatta to get my hair cut super short. Thank you Julie and God Bless you, you are a very special person. Gail Gold Coast
Best medical wigs and bamboo turbans in town. Thank you Tanya from the Myer Centre store, your kindness and patience made a rather daunting experience enjoyable. I left with renewed confidence xx Amanda Bynes Brisbane QLD
I thoroughly enjoyed the LGFB programme I attended. The make-up artists were very good. I learnt a lot re eyebrow placement, blusher placement etc. Julie the wig lady from Starkles was excellent and demonstrated many wigs. I bought one which I love and I’m now in the process of claiming my 80% from my health fund. Amazing how many ways you can wear turbans and scarves. I would thoroughly recommend LGFB to others. The donated make-up was a real bonus. Helen Brisbane QLD
‘’I was a customer in your Gold Coast store last week, looking for a wig as I have just commenced chemotherapy for breast cancer. I have been in retail for most of my working life and I can honestly say the service provided by Tanya was one of the best I have encountered. Her service was of the highest standard, without being pushy but yet extremely helpful. Challenging enough going through this process, Tanya made it just that much easier with her caring attitude and professionalism. You have one great employee in this woman and I will be telling many of my experience. Great work Tanya!‘’ T. O’Neill Gold Coast QLD
‘’Hi Shelley. This is a big thank you to you and all your wonderful staff, who were so amazing, understanding, helpful and very obliging to me in what was a very distressing time for me and my family. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone to you. I was quite overwhelmed with the Starkles teams willingness to be as helpful as they could. The wig I settled on was actually the one you matched to my photo I sent you. But you even sent me many more to choose from as I could not get to your stores, I found that to amazing. The fringe, the turbans the night caps, all things I never thought of but were defiantly appreciated. No one ever thought I was wearing a wig, and I can assure you my reflection looked great therefore I felt good, no more looking at reflections that reminded me I had breast cancer. The wig washed beautifully, one lady at pathology mentioned how lovely my hair was considering I was having chemo, I had to show her it was indeed a wig, she got your phone number as her hair was thinning with age.
You know we all say, “it’s just hair it’ll grow back” I know I said it to people before I was diagnosed but unfortunately your reflection does not say that, it just makes you feel so sad and cry a lot. Most of the cost is payable through private insurance and can also be claimed through Centrelink if you don’t have private insurance, the remains of the cost is so worth it if only just for your confidence. Shelley and her staff were so amazing before during and after, making sure I was ok. If you are going through anything that causes hair loss these wonderful people at Starkles can and are willing to help to give you some confidence, having you looking therefore feeling better about yourself. Thank you‘’ C. Cross Port Macquarie NSW
“I really just wanted to extend a BIG THANK YOU to Lynda from Starkles who was at the PA hospital’s LGFB program (27/10) who went out of her way to help my sister with the special purchase of a wig! My sister has been in hospital for 3 months after having brain tumors removed and has had to relearn to walk!! It was priceless walking back into Rehab today with Nurses/Staff hardly recognizing her and showering her in compliments on her makeover!! She was beaming. Thank you so much for your service and generosity with your time and special help. Thank you hardly seems enough.” Sue Brisbane QLD
”Hello, My daughter and I attended a LGFB presentation this morning and can I say what a wonderful workshop it is, so much more than just learning how to apply make-up. Our facilitator Beth was fabulous, and as my daughter is only 19, it was great for her to be with other women and appreciate the community and support that comes with breast cancer. It was a joy to see her laughing and having so much fun. Particularly beneficial was Julie’s talk on headwear. It gave my daughter some fabulous tips that will allow her to make a statement with her “nude” head! Thank you very much.” Janet Brisbane QLD
‘’My family and I cannot begin to thank the Starkles store and their beautiful staff, for when my mum was going through stage 4 breast cancer lost her hair, they understood that for any women it is just devastating. I was not sure what to expect when it came to buying a wig for mum, I had no idea of what this process involved. The staff spent over two hours with me, and going through photos of mum, helping me pick a wig as mum was too unwell to do so. The little tips, the fake fringes, the scarves, the comfy sleep turbans were all new to me. Wig shampoo, how to wash it, clean it, style it, nothing was too much to ask these ladies. So much time was spent showing me what to do. When I got it all home to mum she was overcome with gratitude that a busy store took so much time out of their day to help her. Along the way the staff checked in on us and were always sending little positive reinforcements to us. We will be forever grateful for the kind and compassionate service we received. In our darkest days these wonderful people gave us a light that would not have been possible without their work. And when my mum felt her worst they made her look just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside. Thank you so much for making life at such a tragic and hard time a little more beautiful. Thank you again. C Taffe Balinga QLD
‘’Vicki, thank you for your time and expert advice, this lady works magic, very happy with the results.’’ Sarah Pellick Gold Coast QLD
‘’The Starkles Team never cease to amaze me. Their dedication and commitment to their clients is second to none. I have watched in awe at their patience and genuine concern for customers faced with making decisions at some of the most difficult times in their lives. The quality and choice of products is amazing and the service is excellent. Thank you Starkles for your contribution to our happiness.’’ G Adams Merrimac QLD
‘’Thank you for looking after my dear friend. The treatment is really getting her down and she was so scared about trying on wigs. You were so professional. You treated her with respect. She walked away saying what a relief it was not to get sympathy, rather, empathy. This disease is not fair and nothing about it is easy. Thank you for helping my friend understand the practical side of looking good so that she can feel better about herself. Keep doing what you do.’’ Georgia Sydney NSW
‘’Starkles have the best quality hair I’ve had in years and helpful staff.’’ Debbie Brisbane QLD
‘’Conveniently located at the Myer Centre Brisbane CBD. They have a wide range to suit all tastes and styles, products are high quality and reasonably priced and the customer service is outstanding! Will definitely return and will recommend my family and friends. Thanks again!’’ Cesira Brisbane QLD
“Dear LGFB team,
I was referred to a LGFB workshop through the nurses and volunteer staff at the Oncology Clinic at Gold Coast University Hospital. I was initially sceptical that how I looked would make me feel better, but had noticed that those around me coped better when I made the effort. My workshop was held at the Cancer Council Southport on 13/10/15 – what a surprise!! I absolutely loved the day. The instructor was SO helpful and really friendly. I learned so much from her, it was like having my very own beauty lesson. I had always been against wearing a wig, but was shown that a healthy, natural looking make up was the trick to wearing a wig with confidence. I loved the look so much I visited Starkles the next day and bought the wig I had sampled. The workshop volunteers were all such happy & helpful ladies that we felt really pampered. It was an honour to share the day, and our stories, with other women. A huge thank you to the cosmetic companies for their generous donation of products. A special thank you to the team of volunteers for pampering us. But, even beyond that, when life has become a test of just how much our body and soul can endure, your workshop was FUN. I had forgotten that there is still much in life to enjoy.
So a heartfelt to everyone at Look Good Feel Better for the difference you make in our lives.
May God bless you abundantly.’’ T Hutley Gold Coast
‘’I recently ordered a bounce hair piece from Starkles for my daughter for cheerleading. I received fantastic service, they were so helpful and the hair piece is beautiful. I ordered it around lunchtime Wednesday and it arrived in Adelaide from Queensland by lunchtime the following day. I was really impressed with the price as well.’’ R Smith, South Australia
‘’I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the workshop yesterday! Although I’m a keen fan of makeup I learnt plenty of new ways of doing things, especially with losing eyebrows etc, so it was definitely a very worthwhile experience. So a big thanks to Gillian, Chrissie and Julie, they were welcoming and empathic and it was overall a really positive experience.’’ Sheena, Brisbane
‘’Great friendly staff, very happy with bounce hair pieces, super-fast postage will recommend.’’ H Tucker, Adelaide
