Larry Zellers, Master Hairstylist and Owner of Boomerang Hair Studio, has relocated his hair salon to 230 Grand Avenue in Pacific Grove. Zellers is a trained specialist in hair replacement and education as well as traditional hair salon services, including the new Keratin Smoothing Treatment. A confidential complementary consultation is available for new clients.
Since 1983, Larry Zellers has been dedicated to helping others deal with the challenge of medical and non-medical hair loss and thinning hair, often due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, menopause, hormone therapy including the transgender community, trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling on head, face, and body), genetics, stress, and other conditions. He offers customized solutions to help people look their best and restore their self-confidence and self-esteem. He specializes in providing and teaching his clients to work with both human and synthetic hair replacements, wigs, hair pieces, cranial prosthetics, hair grafts, and hair loss treatments.
Margarite Alvarez, owner of Choice Home Health Care, explains, “When I met Larry, I told him that I didn’t think many women would feel comfortable with a male shaving their head and witnessing their fear and embarrassment. Within five minutes, I recognized that he was blessed with a special gift. Larry has dedicated his career to using his expertise along with his personal gift to help women and men to look better, but most importantly to feel better at a most critical time of their life. Every person I have sent to Larry has told me how grateful they were to me for referring him. I had only to look at them to know what a difference he made. The hair always looked great but it is the smile on their face that tells me I was right!”
Larry’s personal mission is to ensure that people feel not only more attractive, but that everyone has a good time and laughs while working with him. According to Larry, “My goal is for everyone wearing a hair replacement to feel natural and comfortable. I can customize a hair replacement that best suits an individual’s face shape and lifestyle. Every day becomes a ‘good hair day’ for my clients! Statistics reveal that over 50 percent of men and women over the age of 50 have some type of hair loss. My desire is to share information, products, and services to help anyone suffering with any hair loss related issues. I have worked with hundreds of people, many who were afraid to leave the house until they came to see me, and I customized hair solutions for them. Helping people feel comfortable and confident is my main objective.”
Larry adds, “I have always been fascinated by all of the glamour and high fashion of the 1940’s and 1950’s. The outfits were always complete and the hair was always finished. Marilyn Monroe, Betty Davis, and Elizabeth Taylor never left the house with “bed head” after all. For people who suffer with hair loss, it is easy to lose one’s sense and self confidence. I strive to put the glamour back in everyone’s life!”
Larry Zellers, 46, has had an international career working in the hair replacement, salon, spa, and film industries for over twenty years. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, his career has taken him to locations as varied as Mexico, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Carmel and now Pacific Grove. He works with people of all ages, from children to seniors, including those in the transgender community. Larry has often donated his time and expertise for washing and styling the hair replacements of the chemotherapy patients at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula. He has given many “Look Good and Feel Better” seminars through the American Cancer Society at both Community Hospital and Dominican Hospital. He works with the Florida-based “Locks of Love” program to provide hair replacement for kids with medically related hair loss. Larry has written numerous columns for the National Hair Journal, the largest trade publication for the hair replacement industry. He is also a member of the National Hair Society and Professional Women’s Network of the Monterey Peninsula. Larry has been a frequent guest speaker for women’s groups, seniors’ groups, and support groups, and provides individual one-onone consultations.
