Styling Your Image After Hair Loss

Styling your image after hair lossThere are many options available for styling your image following hair loss.

Whether it’s long flowing locks, platinum tipped spikes or silver streaked tresses, our hair is often a significant part of how others see us, and how we look at ourselves. Cancer, chemotherapy, female pattern balding and alopecia can all cause women to temporarily or permanently lose some or all of their hair. Many women are emotionally fragile during this time – not only are they fighting for their lives and their futures, but to do so feeling bare and vulnerable can make things even more stressful. As emotionally draining that hair loss can be, current attitudes and trends embrace individuality.  There is also a renewed respect for the choices that women make about their appearance. Here are some of the ways to style your new appearance with confidence:

Reproduce it – With a high-quality wig, we can recreate your natural cut, color, and style and offer a much-needed sense of continuity while you fight other battles. Custom-fitted human hair wigs offer the most realistic appearance and feel. Furthermore, medical wigs (hair prosthesis) for cancer patients and other health conditions may qualify for partial or complete health insurance coverage. The best time to get fitted for a custom wig is when your physician prescribes your treatment. That way, your wig will be ready when you need it.

Reinvent it – A woman who has spent her entire life with long hair and is suddenly faced with hair loss could decide to reemerge with a completely different look. Maybe it’s a blue-tipped pixie cut as the hair is growing back from chemo, or a wig in a completely different color and style than before. A complete change can feel like a step in the right direction for some women who feel that they are embarking on an unknown journey.

Own it – In this time when diversity is embraced and sought out, many brave women have decided to own their baldness with fearless ferocity. Instead of covering up or dressing up their hairless heads, they are confidently showing them off and daring anyone to judge their decision. This approach can be terrifying for some, but incredibly liberating for other women. Be sure to protect the delicate scalp from direct sunlight and cold weather.

Dress it up – In generations past, women fighting through chemo were often seen with large hats, scarves, and sunglasses in an attempt to hide hair loss and avoid attention. These days, attitude is everything; you can proudly wear a scarf, ball cap, bandana or wide-brimmed straw hat as an accessory, not as a disguise. Whether it’s a signature colored scarf or an elegant turban, there are countless products on the market that protect the scalp and make a fashion statement., your wig will be ready when you need it.
