I have Big Life and Thin Hair And so here we are. This is how and why BIG LIFE THIN HAIR was born. It’s the natural and, let’s face it, WILLFUL result of personal struggle, searching, a love of hair, a love of my fellow womankind and A LOVE OF LIFE. It’s born of a need to have an answer to the noise of “hair = beauty.”
My answer is LIFE IS BIGGER.
There are a lot of universal themes when it comes to hair challenges and care, and for some subcultures - like blondes, curly or African American hair - we do a great job in our industry talking about challenges, pain points, and the emotional ideologies associated with each subculture. But it’s time to start a dynamic dialogue between stylists and thinning hair clients.
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!
Empowerment can begin in a simple movement or dance class and Lisa Zahiya is proof. My conversation with this dear friend, empowerment coach, performer and owner of Studio Z is an instant shot in the arm.
I loved welcoming Pittsburgh stylist, curly hair and scalp care expert Christopher Langlois to the salon to discuss scalp health, helping clients to simplify and where to look for the right info.

It's time for a little MD from a PhD (professional hair dresser), because I know that hair loss can be very confusing. Here's some help, data and love in a short podcast.
With this podcast, I'm revisiting the topic of wigs. Over the last couple of years of working with more thinning hair clients, I've been asked dozens of questions, seen the concern and fear that comes with considering a wig and have helped women embrace them as an option and even a fun new addition to their lives.
I'm getting serious, getting even more specific about what happens to your hair when you want to bleach it and even getting a little geeky with info. As with my last podcast - Can I Color My Hair, Part I, there's a lot to learn and, more important to you, practical considerations to have in your back pocket when you consider changes to your hair and meeting with your trusted stylist.
