Martino Cartier Grants Wigs and Wishes

close formula

As always, Wigs & Wishes 2016 was a night to remember. With live performances and wishes granted, people from all over the world came together for the fourth annual Wigs & Wishes event to help raise money and fulfill wishes for women and children battling cancer. Artistic Creative Director for hairtalk Extensions, Celebrity Stylist and Founder of Friends Are By Your Side Martino Cartier, as well as Fabio Sementilli, VP of Education for Wella Professionals welcomed guests at Lucien’s Manor in Berlin, N.J. this past October.


Martino’s vision for Wigs & Wishes has become a reality over the years through joining forces with salons worldwide in order to provide wigs, free of charge, and services to women and children undergoing chemotherapy. All proceeds from the event go toward granting these wigs, as well as wishes, whether it’s a toy drive or a Disney vacation. Friends Are By Your Side is a growing network doing their best to make those dreams a reality, and over the past two years, more than $300,000 has been raised for the cause.
