A Family Tradition of Custom Hair Excellence and Quality
PonyExpressCUSTOMHair has been a family business since 1929. Our Custom Hair Replacement, Hair Extensions and Wigs business evolved from a family of Master Wigmakers, some being involved in the business as early as the 1800’s.
Linda Montoya, the owner of PonyExpressCUSTOMHair, learned the trade from her Grandmother spending summers as a child, in her Grandmothers Hair Replacement, Extensions & Wigs Shoppe. She learned that the most important element of any hair replacement solution is the QUALITY of the hair. Hair texture, color, and cuticle density blending are also important and critical to insure a seamless, undetectable Hair Replacement result but hair quality is key.
PonyExpressCUSTOMHair uses only the finest (cuticle intact) Virgin European, Blue String Italian, Silky Russian and Brazilian blends, and also in certain situations, Remy and Indian Temple hair is also used. Linda blends the hair herself, to ensure a superior, perfect, personalized result for each and every Hair Replacement, Hair Extensions & Custom Wig client.

Experienced Custm Hair Solutions You Can Trust
Experience does count! Previously, Linda owned 2 very popular Hair Replacement studios & Hair Extensions salons in the Cleveland Ohio area, one in Lakewood, Ohio, and another Hair Studio in the ‘On The Playhouse Square’ Theatrical District, in downtown Cleveland.
While in Cleveland, Linda did extensive work with many different hair loss patients which were referred to her from all the top Cleveland Medical Centers. Linda worked extensively with all types of Alopecia hair loss patients, hormonal hair loss issues, Trich-Trichotillomania-hair pulling patients, and many teen and children’s hair loss issues.
Linda’s work eventually led her down the path of commuting to Los Angeles to work on many of her celebrity clients. After commuting to Los Angeles for over 2 years, Linda decided to relocate to California, to be closer to her many clients in the entertainment industry. Linda left her Cleveland Hair Studios in the very competent care of her Salon manager at the time, Catherine (CustomHairbyCatherine.com, NY, NY).
While working in her Hair Replacement, Hair Extensions & Wigs studios in North Hollywood and Studio City, California for over 13 years, Linda enjoyed catering to the many requests of her entertainment oriented clients. Linda created every type of Hair Replacement, Wig and Wiglet, and Hair Extensions combination imaginable for her California clients, what a creative environment for a Custom Hair artist!
Linda enjoyed every opportunity (and there were many) to create numerous Hair Replacement solutions for her clients in the entertainment industry including many famous musicians, actors, and yes, even the Chippendale Dancers!
At this point you may be asking, ‘Why leave Los Angeles for New Mexico?’ It all started when Linda married her actor boyfriend, who is an Albuquerque Native and has spent many months filming in New Mexico. After visiting New Mexico and especially Albuquerque with her husband, Linda fell in love with the Sandia Mountain area and the city of Albuquerque itself…and the rest is history.
On a personal note: Linda also runs a 501 Dog Rescue outside of Albuquerque, in the East Mountains of New Mexico. She rescue dogs, also horses, and cats in need. It’s a worthwhile feeling to know your patronage to PonyExpressCUSTOMHair will make you not only look and feel fantastic, but you are also contributing to the care of the rescued dogs, horses, and kitties on the Pony Express Ranch!
