Meet Maggie Varney
FOUNDER, GO GREEN SALON & WIGS 4 KIDS
Maggie Varney, Founder & CEO of Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids has been a licensed cosmetologist for over 40 years. For the past 30 years, she's been teaching patients how to handle the appearance-related side effects of their cancer treatments.
The idea for Wigs 4 Kids began when a teen named Emily came to her class and asked for Maggie’s assistance with a wig. Maggie had assumed that Emily would be able to visit any salon to find a wig that would meet her needs. However, wigs that were sold by salons were only made for adults and didn’t fit the head of a child or teen. Emily was then invited to Maggie’s salon so she could get the support she needed. With Emily being the inspiration behind the idea, Maggie founded Wigs 4 Kids in 2003. Since then, the organization has provided over 4,000 wigs and services to children across Michigan!
The Go Green Salon was established in 2010 when the first Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center opened, placed inside the center, Maggie knew that this type of salon is desirable for our guests as well as a safe & healthy environment for the children we see in the Wigs 4 Kids program.
Maggie has been in the beauty industry and owned several businesses prior to establishing Go Green Salon. She has always promoted and used products that are considered green. Maggie was inspired by the shift of consciousness in the beauty industry that followed and she committed to that thinking and way of life. When the original Go Green Salon was established, it had bamboo flooring, non-toxic paint on the walls, tank-less water heaters and all natural product lines to ensure the salon was eco-friendly. This has been the focus in the new state of the art facility to always put the health and safety of the salon, environment, guests and team first.
Go Green Salon has been named in the 101 Best & Brightest Sustainable Companies by the Michigan Business and Professional Association.
