I’m going to lose my hair, What Now?

September 5, 2017 – I guess you could say I was born into the wig business, going all the way back to my parents, who started a wig business over fifty years ago – a business that I run to this day – called Arizona Wig Boutique, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Since I have been in the wig business my whole life, I have seen and worked with customers experiencing hair loss in every possible form.

If you have been given the unfortunate news that you’re going to lose your hair, or if you are already experiencing severe hair loss, please don’t despair. I know it’s not easy, but there is hope. Some people choose to cover their heads with a hat or scarf. Many though, prefer to replace their hair with a wig.

Choosing to wear a wig or hair piece can boost your confidence and make you feel like yourself again. Gone are the days of the hot, heavy, plastic looking wigs that your Grandmother might have worn, and the ones I remember seeing as a child in my parent’s store.

The advancements in the wig industry since then are nothing less than revolutionary. The material and construction of wigs today, whether synthetic or human hair, are amazing. They are lightweight, cool, and have an ultra-natural look and feel, and of course they come in modern styles and colors.

Just look at Hollywood for evidence of how natural looking wigs are today. All the entertainers that we see every night on our televisions, and the gorgeous fashion models on the runways, are all wearing wigs or hair piece enhancements of some sort, and they look fantastic.

Even many of my customers over the years, who have fortunately been able to regrow their hair, have continued to wear and enjoy their wigs. They have even purchased new fun styles and colors to add to their wig collections!

Our boutique salon focuses on giving our customers dealing with hair loss, an opportunity to feel like themselves again by offering the most advanced quality wigs (cranial prosthesis.) When you are in the need of a wig, we will help you find the right style and color wig to mimic your natural look. Or we can help you find something completely different that still looks natural on you.

We have an incredible staff of licensed wig specialists, who have the expertise and sensitivity to cater to the unique needs of all our customers. Our specialist’s will have great advice and tips on all necessary accessories and products that we carry, to ensure proper care and storage of your new hairpiece.

We even include complimentary custom fitting and tailoring of any of our wigs you choose. We also offer a drop off service for our customers who need cleaning, styling, and restructuring of their pieces.

Wigs have come a long way from the heavy plastic looking wigs of my youth. Our modern wigs masquerade as natural hair so well that people will never know you are wearing a wig. If you are experiencing hair loss or are expecting to soon, and considering wearing a wig, know that there are wigs and hairpiece extensions that grace the catwalk because they look that good.
