About Us

When Apie gave birth, she suffered from post-partum alopecia and started losing her hair, like one in three women in Canada who suffer from hair loss in their lifetime. While wearing hair extensions is common in the Black community, finding the right texture and style proved to be a significant challenge. Another challenge was the lack of Black hair salons, of which there are only five in Halifax. With these two challenges in mind she thought, “I can be the one to do this.”

Apie took that initial burst of confidence and went back to school, joining an apprenticeship program. Then, she challenged and passed her Red Seal Certification exam to become certified hair stylist in September 2020.

Combined with her previous interest and knowledge of wigmaking through personal experience, Apie used what she learned in theory and in the classroom to perfect her wig designing technique and launched Apie the Wigologist (ATW) in October 2020. Her mission is to empower people to continue their natural hair journey through premium wig and hair textured extensions, created specifically for the Black community.
