About A Natural Image Studio for Hair

Meet Two of the Most Trusted Hair Replacement Professionals in WNY!

For over 20 years, hair replacement specialists Joanie Kumiega and Paula Lajoie, have been helping Western New Yorkers suffering from hair loss. In 2009, we came together to open a Natural Image Studio for Hair conveniently located at 5136 Sheridan Drive in Williamsville. Since then, men, women and children from across Western New York have trusted us to provide their non-surgical hair replacement solutions.

The Difference You’ll Only Find at a Natural Image

When you come to a Natural Image for a consultation you aren’t going to be met with a sales pitch.  Instead we’ll just talk with you and see how we can help.  We understand hair loss is a very personal subject for most people.  Every client who visits a Natural Image will be treated with:


  • Compassion
  • Dignity
  • Respect

When it comes to dealing with hair loss it is important to have a personal connection with your hair replacement specialist.  At a Natural Image, you’ll not only get that but we’ll also help take the stress and anxiety out of the process.   When you work with a Natural Image you are dealing directly with one of us.  We are committed to providing a level of customer service you can’t get with a national chain or in many other hair replacement studios.  We pride ourselves on being innovative so we regularly attend educational classes to ensure you get the most cutting edge hair replacement solutions on the market in the industry.

Meet Joanie

How did you get started with hair replacement?  I began as a stylist over twenty years ago and quickly came to realize just how important a person’s self-image is and how greatly hair loss can impact their overall well-being. In helping them, I truly believe it is such a blessing to BE a blessing to others.

What do you like most about your job? I enjoy helping people feel better about themselves and their appearance. There is a great satisfaction in the service I provide, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Meet Paula

How did you get started with hair replacement? As a cosmetologist, I was faced with clients that were challenged by thinning hair and wanted to help.  I made a decision to focus my training and specialize in this field and have enjoyed many years of success.

What do you like most about your job? Seeing the refreshed, smiling faces, and encouraging healing for people with a renewed self-image.
