I met Cheryl Tankersley in 1999 when I just happened to stop by Plaint Hair.  She was sweeping the floor in anticipation of closing the shop for the day.  Although she was closing, Cheryl immediately turned her attention on me, insisted I stay and gave me an “on the spot” consultation.

She made me, a total stranger, feel important and that she wanted nothing more than to help me feel better about me . Well….. 12 years later nothing has changed!! Every single time I enter the Planet Hair door 100% customer service is provided.  It is an open arms establishment whose entire goal is to make sure when you walk out their door you feel and look better than when you walked in.

I am a part of the Planet Hair family.

Dear Mike and Cheryl,

I wanted to take the opportunity to say “Thank you” for the services you provide to me at Planet Hair, as well as your friendship.  It is a gift to me to have known you both these past 7 years and to be able to tell my family and friends that my “salonist” is not only my hairdresser but a “true, dear friend.”

During every session I have spent with you I come away feeling like a brand new person, literally inside AND out!  Our conversations have shown me that you genuinely care about your clients and you have offered great support and advice on those days that I was not feeling my best!

I will always treasure the token picture you gave to me to help “lift my spirits and faith” during a dark period in my life.

Thank you for your services and keeping me looking my best!  But most of all, thank you for your friendship, smiles, hugs and the laughter you have shared with me every time I get to come visit and go through “the beauty machine!”  I am blessed to have walked through your doors at Planet Hair on that very first day many years ago!

Take care and God Bless you both!


After hearing the words cancer and chemotherapy in the same paragraph your mind begins swirling. There are so many decisions that need to be made and your body, mind and spirit wonder if you can do it.

Then, you meet real life angels on your cancer journey. You know these people. They are the ones you will remember forever, the folks that truly make a difference in your journey and in your life.

One of those angels was Cheryl at Planet Hair. I knew I would loose my hair to chemo treatments and I began the search for wigs. I looked in several locations prior to meeting Cheryl, but I will never forget my initial phone call to her after leaving another salon. I was tearful after that awful experience.

I called Cheryl and she said to come immediately, “we will make you feel better”.  Imagine that, feel better? I was already driving to the salon!

When I arrived, she greeted me with a hug and she showed me to her beautiful, private wig salon. We began the process of matching my hair color, style and preferences. At the end of our first visit, I felt a sense of relief that the loss of my hair would be manageable.

I would go on to see Cheryl several more times during my treatments, actually ending up with 4 wigs that received loads of compliments! She made sure that each one was styled to perfection.

One year later, I have my own hair and have had several hair cuts since those days in wigs. I can not express enough how important Cheryl and Planet Hair were in my cancer journey and recovery. I now enjoy seeing Cheryl every six weeks for a hair cut of my very own hair! I know where to find an angel!
