Beverly Powell fights cancer by restoring confidence


May 1, 2013 —

Powell wants those who want a wig to set up an appointment but welcomes walk-ins at Woody’s Hair Shop on Carey Avenue in Morehead.

“We like them to have appointments so we can focus on them and give them a personal, private experience with wig selection and fittings, cuts and styling and beauty consultation. They are also welcome to take their wigs to their personal stylist if they want,” said Powell. “We don’t talk about cancer or what they are going through unless they want to do so. We want it to feel like they are just going to the beauty shop to have their hair and makeup done.”

She said the wigs are very high quality and natural looking.

“We have gray, blonde, brunette, short, long, curly, straight, real hair, synthetic and so many more for people to pick from,” said Powell. “I’ve told the ladies, it is kind of like picking out a wedding dress…once you get the right one, you just know.”

Look Good-Feel Better meets every third Wednesday of the month at the Women’s Imaging Center at St. Claire Regional Medical Center from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Powell asks anyone interested in a wig or for more information about Look Good-Feel Better to call her at 784-2387.

“There is so much need and I want to do what I can to help,” said Powell. “I hate that they have to go through everything they do and if I’m able to make one person feel more like their self, then I will keep doing this until I can no longer.”

Shayla Menville can be reached at or by telephone at 784-4116.
