Part of the reason why we’re in the business of hair is to make a difference in the lives of individuals suffering from hair loss! And, for us, it’s doubly important when those hair issues stem from medical reasons hindering the lives of innocent children! Enter Shequlia Bohannon (aka Quilla, aka Quilla Bohyme—we were so ever touched by the name change, Quilla!), a Wig Magician we first encountered on a FOX News broadcast.

One look at the remarkable work Quilla is doing prompted us to work in tandem to provide complimentary hair from both of our brand flagships, Bohyme and Original Remi, to her worthy cause! We highly recommend you check out her Go Fund Me Page and support FreeWigs4Kids suffering from hair loss with a small monetary donation. The heartfelt before n’ afters on Instagram are a must see—especially this recent one!

We did a great YouTube tutorial on how to clean, maintain and apply the #freewig4kids❤️

In the meantime, please read along as we dive deeper into Quilla’s quest to transform the lives of children with the universal power of hair!

Well I learned from my grandmother who was a hairstylist. I still remember the day I did my first braid, it was actually on a Barbie when I was 5 years old. Hair has followed me every step of the way. In middle school I would tell my mom I’m staying after school for track or cheerleading, but in reality I was getting paid to braid other kids hair who were involved in those extra curricular activities. LOL I knew she wouldn’t have let me stay after school if I wasn’t directly involved. 

I love this question! For me, this is bigger than just being a stylist, marking hair for the medical arena was something I said I would always do since a teenager. My great grandmother passed from leukemia and lost her hair so it was important to make her happy even though she is no longer here.

Styling is the best part and the art of wig making! Traditional wigs wouldn’t fit for every child. I usually speak to them beforehand, and after hearing their personalities, I know exactly what style to do. Absolutely, the children have a big input as far as styling beforehand. I like to make each wig artistic and interesting!

I would say the biggest obstacle in helping those with hair loss is the fact i can’t make their hair a permanent piece...the children love their wigs but I often hear them say “I wish I could get my old hair back”.

Yes, I developed free wigs for kids with a gofundme fundraiser for the world & community to help me raise money for shipping the kid wigs & the supplies to make them. The criteria is very strict and is only offered to kids who are suffering from hair loss due to various medical conditions. I form list, and basically, parents worldwide reach out to me via email and or social media. I then order from who reaches out first to last. Parents should be very patient because sometimes a wig can take over a week to make depending on the child’s head size. I do ask parents to send me before and after pictures so that donors are able to see how much of a difference they have helped me make with providing each child with the hair of their dreams.

The 44 inch wig has now been extended to over 65 inches. I’ve been working on it for months, and yet it seems there is always something to add to it. Sounds crazy long huh? I want it to be able say “Runway Hair” but without actually saying it. Honestly...I don’t know if I ever want to make it took my family of 5 people to comb and keeping it from tangling as I walked’s a real headache. Not to say I wouldn’t make one for others to purchase, but I’m definitely going to take a break after I debut mine.

Well, it’s like a comfort blanket and a security blanket for most. Because my wigs are so realistic looking, it reminds them of the hair they once used to have. It gives hope and my wigs definitely boost confidence!

Yes! Absolutely, those who are interested in getting a pair of brows made can contact me anytime!!

I am reachable by email and on various social media sites. My Instagram is @freewigs4kids and under Facebook it’s Wigs Runway Hair. Email is RunwayHairatl (at) I have a gofundme for those who would like to fund free wigs 4 Kids at and there is also an Amazon supply list for those who would like to purchase hair supplies for the kid wigs.
