Bang Bang, Color Choices and Life Oh My!

by Y on August 28, 2017

I came into Sophie’s salon today because I need a change, my life is changing, and I feel my hair needs one too. I have this gorgeous Follea wig that was formerly a 5010, and she’s been beautifully colored already once before, and banged… However, as I’ve evolved over the years in life and in hair wearing, so has what I want out of my wig hair wearing experience. I’m much more explorative and adventurous. I have found you need to get a little dirty to get a little more beautiful. That probably makes no sense, but I was always very vanilla with my hair needs, but working with my girl Sophie Hafner, has leveled up what I thought could be possible. So here I sit, with a wig and bangs, and feeing I need a little something something.

While my life has been in flux and ever changing, I want you to know, I’m still here…. hair loss took away my life for a long time, but in return it gave me so much more. I have found love, friendship, and you, all of you.

In my spirit of gratitude and feeling thankful, i want to thank all of you amazing women who have supported me, without the love and support of the Women’s Hair Loss Project, I wouldn’t be able to be where I am today. While some people say I gave them life and hope again, you gave me life and hope. Mad props always to Follea who let me feel like myself again, and for eventually finding my sister for another mister, Miss… Sophie Hafner… can I formerly thank you hair loss. Like thanks. I thought my world was over, but I didn’t know at the time when I was 21 (I’m 39) that my journey was really just beginning.

Sending Much Love and Hugs to You All.

You look great as always! Yes, thank God for this site and for you of course. I went to Follea in BH and fell in love with the wig I tried on; however, my scalp began to itch. All I can think of is that I was sensitive to the material.

What wig cap material do you use? It was a shame because I really loved the way it looked. I couldn’t believe how so not used to feeling the weight of hair on my shoulders I was. The hair looked foreign at first because I’ve never had such volume.

I hope you can share some tips with regard to this.

Many blessings and thank you as always,

Really glad I found this site! I know my hair is thinning but everyone keeps telling me it’s fine and not to worry, but I’m only 29 and want to keep what I have. Any more loss and I won’t be able to hide it :(.

Sent a request for an invite to join the community, so I’m hoping to receive a code soon and learn more about everyone’s stories and experiences, especially with the PRP.

Your story has really helped me cope with all this and realize how amazing and natural wigs can look!

Thanks so much for sharing
