Is it time yet?

In the last month, I’ve had several clients who have decided it’s time to pursue a hair loss solution after talking with them about their options for over a year!  So why now?  What changed? What made them decide it was time?

Sometimes the client thinks “it’s not that bad” and they put it off until they see a picture of themselves or they look in the mirror one day and realize their hair loss is progressing.  Sometimes it’s financial, clients have to wait until they can afford the hair loss solution they want.  Other times it’s just plain fear, they are nervous to commit to a change and/or they are also afraid of what others may say.

Regardless of what is holding you back, I always advise clients to do what is going to make them happy when they look in the mirror.  If you look in the mirror and your hair looks great, then chances are we will never meet but if you notice your hair is changing, maybe thinning a bit and you make the effort to come in and have a free consultation, you are concerned about what the future holds for you hair.  If you weren’t you wouldn’t invest the time in learning your options.

It’s ok if you’re not ready to act immediately.  It’s  good to do your homework and learn about your different options.  It’s also fine to take some time to prepare for the comittment whether it be financially, mentally, socially or all of the above.

Regardless of what is holding YOU back, always remember that deciding what to do about your hair is a BIG decision, but doing nothing at all is an even bigger decision.  You are making the decision to leave your appearance as it is. Although doing nothing about your hair loss might seem like the easiest option, quite the opposite is true. How you see yourself in the mirror will be with you continually.

Client Success Story: New Body + New Hair = New Life

Catherine S. is proof that when you are not happy with your appearance and you make the commitment to change it, amazing things can happen!  I want to share Catherine’s story with you because I think she will be an inspiration for anyone considering hair replacement or for that matter, anyone that is not happy with what they see in the mirror.

Her journey to a change began in 2003 when she was in college studying to be a Veterinary Technician.  She was stressed, not exercising and not eating properly.  She started gaining weight and noticed that it was having a negative impact on her body.  After joining a weight loss program she lost 70lbs but over the course of a few years, and several other attempts to keep the weight off, it eventually crept back on.

In 2008 she decided to do something more aggressive. Several years before, one of her family members had a successful gastric bypass surgery and Catherine began considering the option for herself.  With a team of Doctors leading the way she began the process of  preparing herself for the changes her body would go through.  Her Doctor also explained that hair loss and thinning hair could be a potential side effect of this procedure, but she felt the benefits outweighed the potential costs and in May 2009 she had the procedure.

Just a few months after she was starting to feel good.  Her body was changing and she was happy with her decision but she also noticed her hair had started thinning.  The front and the crown started to get so sparce she considered purchasing a wig or wearing a bandana 24-7…until she came across Santangelo’s website!

Catherine came into my office and wanted to know her options.  We talked about Hair for Life and how wearing a hair system could really change the way her hair looked.  She decided on the spot that she wanted to get started and a few months later, she came in for her first delivery and left with a full head of hair.  Here’s what she had to say about her experience:

“I felt comfortable at my consultation discussing my hair loss and my expectations.  The consult was very professional and I was very happy with my options, the pricing and payment options. I have been very happy with the whole hair system process.  The hair stylists have been great.  I enjoy the process and also the fact that the system can be cut, colored and styled any way that I want it!…All in all I have a happy ending…I have achieved and stayed at my goal weight (I lost a total of 115lbs) for 2 years, I have great hair thanks to Santangelos, and I am busy planning my wedding!”

Now in 2012, Catherine has a new life.  She has the body she’s always wanted, the hair to match and she’s found someone special to share her life with.  Congratulations Catherine on committing to change, achieving your goals and on your upcoming wedding, we can’t wait to do your hair!
