Gayle's Wigs N Things
100 West 21st Street
Norfolk, VA 23517
Gayle’s Wigs N’ Things first opened its doors in 1951 in Norfolk, VA. It was the ultimate labor of love for my grandparents, Sam and Lillian Snyder. Lillian, or Gaggy as her children lovingly called her, absolutely loved wigs. Gayle’s was her pride and joy, her dream business; Sam, or Pop-Pop as we all called him, helped sustain this dream more successfully than they could have ever imagined.
Sixty-two years later it is still the pride of the Snyder family. Steve Snyder, Sam and Lillian’s son, was heir to the wig throne, and with his wife Anne by his side, they have continued our family’s legacy.
Gayle’s would be lost however, if it weren’t for two devoted employees, Peaches and Millie. Both have been with Gayle’s for over 30 years. I’m Allie, Sam and Lillian’s daughter, and without Gayle’s my post college years would not have been nearly as successful. I feel that I am doing a true service working here, helping women all over Hampton Roads feel better about themselves by finding the perfect wig.
Together, we will continue the Gayle’s legacy for another 60 years, and we are all certain that Gaggy and Pop-Pop are proud of us and the heartfelt work we do every day.
