Changing a wig-wardrobe is not a one-size-fits-all situation for every woman with AA. At one end of the spectrum are those terrified of changing their look, simply due to fear of change and drawing attention to themselves. At the other end are people who justifiably require a consistent look for professional reasons. Yet, there’s a vast territory in between. Where are you on this spectrum? Are you doing what you want on your own terms?
Our very big hugs and thanks to Gail Robson, owner of Boca Raton Hair Center (locations in Boca Raton and Lake Park, FL) who is generously donating a wig or hair replacement unit valued up to $500 at our “Living Well with Alopecia” lunch and program at Serenity Garden Tea and Restaurant on November 3, 2013, 11 am.
