Terri’s Story

I am a licensed Cosmetologist with 42 years of experience and an impressive curriculum of education in thinning hair and breast prosthetics. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I understand that hair loss is most traumatic when facing chemotherapy. After my experience with breast cancer I become a pioneer in the medical hair loss field. Furthermore, I have worked to create solutions for clients with Alopecia areata and general hair thinning. Over the past 22 years, I have been a teaching cosmetologist throughout the country and have been a guest speaker at many women's conventions. My services are high in demand because I use the best products available. My expertise and care has helped many women find a solution.

"Even though I was losing my hair for the third time, Terri made the process of wig selection fun. She is very professional and is "one of us", a cancer survivor herself. I consider her my friend."
