Hair loss specialist and wig provider since 2006


Individuals experiencing hair loss go through so much. We understand it's more than “just hair.

History:

My first experience with cancer was when my grandmother was diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer in 1976.


I first experienced medical hair loss in 1994 when a friend’s daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia. 


In 1995 my best friend was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. And in 2016 my wife faced the same diagnosis.


I was introduced to hair loss while working with Brian Blanchard on Michigan Avenue. Since then, I've continued the care and support of women with hair loss at my own salon to the present day.

Passion:

When I finished working with my first client's wig, she cried, thanked me for getting her look back.  I saw how happy she was.   

 

At that moment, I fully understood how hair loss can be extremely overwhelming and intense. That's why I've been working hard ever since to provide the best products, service and experience possible.
