About Bravadas Wigs & Extensions

Bravadas was started almost 20 years ago by our founder, Scott Stark.

Since then, we’ve been learning everything there is to know about alternative hair, providing beautiful and private spaces for women to find hair solutions, and giving personalized shopping and care experiences. He came up with the concept of following his mother’s cancer diagnosis. Taking her to find a wig, he realized the need for caring, compassionate environments where women undergoing hair loss have access to solutions that help them feel confident and beautiful.

Our company was birthed from the desire to care for women dealing with hair loss, and we’ve continued to provide world-class customer service to everyone, no matter what you’re going through.

The name Bravadas is derived from “Bravado” which means “to show off with a pretense of bravery.” We use the feminine plural conjugation so our interpretation is “brave women connected.”  There’s a spirit of support and camaraderie that fills Bravadas.  Many customers bring a friend or family member, and laughter can often be heard coming from our private styling rooms. Hair loss can be a difficult thing to go through. Bravadas offers a personalized, transformational hair experience unlike any other.

Our Team

Scott Stark – Owner and Founder

I was raised on a working farm in Wichita, Kansas where strong ethics and family values were encouraged. The skill sets learned in my youth combined with a formal education in business at Wichita State University, led me to become an independent entrepreneur- owning and operating seven Beauty First salons and co-owning an Aveda lifestyle salon. Dedication, hard work, and attention to detail attributed to my overall success satisfying customers and keeping employees happy and fulfilled.

Initially, my experience with wig salons began when I was a customer in search of hair replacement services for my mother who was undergoing chemotherapy. After visiting many unsatisfactory wig boutiques with her, I realized that there was a void that had to be filled. I needed to create and develop an outstanding wig store for my mother and consequently, all people like her with medical hair loss needs. I wanted a salon that was beautiful, clean, and filled to the brim with quality wigs- a place with private fitting rooms and friendly compassionate wig experts. With great passion, I followed my vision and developed Bravadas as the flawless wig salon. Founded in the year 2000, I am very proud of what it has become.

Today, I remain dedicated to its continued growth and constant success. I am committed to keeping Bravadas a world-class experience for everyone who walks in the door.

Tracy Hobbs – Director Of Operations

My relationship began with Bravadas in 2001 when the salon was in the developmental stages. It has been my passion since those humble beginnings to make a difference in the lives of women who are experiencing hair loss. In addition to heading up the Bravadas team this past 19 years, I was a Hair U Wear educator traveling the country teaching classes on wigs, hairpieces and extensions. From the beginning to this day I absolutely love what I do. My passion is to educate others on the benefits of wigs and hairpieces, to give back to the community and improve the lives of anyone experiencing the devastating effects of hair loss. We have been told by our clients that we change lives, and I do believe that we accomplish just that. We give back something that has been lost and that is the best feeling in the world. We not only give them hair but we create friendships that last a lifetime. Bravadas has been my passion for the last 19 years and continues to fulfill my desire to make a difference in the industry. My mission in this business is for all women who experience hair loss to come to a local Bravadas where they will find the perfect solution to maintain a great hair day everyday.
