Marlisa Small, Owner of Marlisa’s Wig Studio & Day Spa in Little River SC, was diagnosed in 1991 with cancer and is a survivor. She is not defined by this but inspired by the strength and courage she sees in other survivors, those just learning about their illness and those going through treatments.
Marlisa is a mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She is also a performer, business owner, and entrepreneur. Many years ago, Marlisa opened a Day Spa, Marlisa and Company in Calabash, NC. After working in Calabash for many years in her very successful venture, Marlisa decided to move to the Little River area. After a few years in business in this area, Marlisa set off on a new quest to open her own Wig Studio. With a load of determination and endless hours of work Marlisa’s Wig Studio was born. It is now open and thriving in Little River on Sea Mountain Highway.
Marlisa’s Wig Studio is the only wig studio serving the beach from North Myrtle Beach north to Brunswick County. Marlisa has helped women from Ocean Isle, Sunset Beach, Calabash, Holden Beach, Longs, Little River, and North Myrtle Beach. She is open daily Monday – Friday 10 am to 5 pm and by appointment Saturday and Sunday.
Marlisa also gives her time and talents to raising money for many causes in the community. You will see her at the Festivals around the area selling tickets, t-shirts, or helping others with their booths. She was named Rotarian of the year 2009-2010; Recognized for her fundraising successes for the North Strand Homeless Shelter; and has awards of recognition from the Veterans Center to name just a few of the organizations in the community Marlisa gives back to.
Marlisa is out there looking for a way to inspire others to donate money to help men, women and children who are losing or have lost their hair to receive a wig free of charge. Marlisa founded the Bold and Beautiful Program to raise funds for men, women and children to provide confidence and dignity with a free wig!
Cancer and other ailments that affect your hair can happen to anyone.
Be a little like Marlisa and give back. See you there!
