It happened to me

2018 was not my favorite year, to say the least. I experienced unexpected hair loss on top of my usual, due to personal upheaval and the unimaginable stress that it brought with it. But I persisted. I survived. And I realized 2 things: what happened to me can happen to anyone, and I’m ready for 2019 with an abundance of strength, knowledge and excitement. You gotta live your life. Plus! I have a discount to help kick off this Big Year, too!

Hair Plus Summit - I'm back!

I'm back from Modern Salon's Hair Plus Summit in Atlanta, where for 48 hours I was completely blissed out by the quality of information, amazing personalities, free-flowing idea sharing and crazy talent I saw.

It is nothing to fear, but rather embrace as an opportunity to take action. If you're moving through the stages of realization and have questions - learn about the reasons for hair loss. Read my blog, titled Get the Facts (August 29), and as always, get your doctor involved if you know you're on the thinning hair path and know, BELIEVE, that you're going to keep moving forward.

A Letter to Hairstylists

I find it rather unfair that most marketing associated with thinning hair products uses models with ungodly amounts of hair.

What I have gotten really, really good at is working with my own hair to make it look more pleasing to my eye.
