Expanding the Life of Your Wigs

Expanding the Life of Your Wigs

Wig Shown Above: Clementine Wig by Jon Renau in color 6F27

   How long your wig will last, and by last, we are all thinking “how long will they look good” –and of course, it depends on what kind of wig, how often you wear it, how you care for it. There is no getting around the fact that just like bio hair, human hair wigs and synthetic fiber wigs must be cared for.

Client Spotlight - Embracing Change: A Journey Through Cancer, Hair Loss, and Wigs

Client Spotlight - Embracing Change: A Journey Through Cancer, Hair Loss, and Wigs

I first met Terri during our consultation. She was running last minute errands in preparation for her first chemotherapy treatment. I caught her in a department store. She found a quiet corner in the store and plopped herself on a lower shelf. I knew then this was more than a consultation, this was the beginning of a new friendship. I saw myself in her. She was strong and graceful. She did not shy away from the hard things. She faced them head on and with a plan. To say I admire Terri is an understatement.

Terri was your quintessential superwoman—a devoted wife, a loving mother, and an active member of her community and church. Her days were a whirlwind of activity as she juggled multiple responsibilities and commitments with grace and ease. Friends, family, and neighbors relied on her unwavering support and boundless energy, and Terri took pride in being the pillar of strength for those around her.

But everything changed when Terri received the news: she had cancer. As Terri navigated the ups and downs of treatment, she discovered a newfound strength within herself.

In Terri's story, we find inspiration and hope—a reminder that even in our darkest moments, there is light to be found. And though the journey may be long and arduous, we can take comfort in knowing that we do not walk alone.

* * * *

Here is Terri’s Journey:

On August 18, 2023, my world changed. A diagnosis of breast cancer marked the beginning of a challenging journey—one filled with uncertainty, fear, and moments of profound strength. But amidst the turmoil, there were also moments of unexpected beauty and connection, like the afternoon my daughter shaved my head.

The inevitability of hair loss hung heavy in the air as I sat in the oncologist's office on September 15th, my birthday. The timeline was stark: in just over two weeks, the first chemo drug would claim my hair. True to their word, on day 13, I felt the first unmistakable clump slip through my fingers. It was time.

Yet, as I prepared to take control of my appearance, my husband hesitated. He needed time to adjust to the reality of my changing image. I respected his feelings, but when the evidence of hair loss became undeniable, I knew it was time to act.  

I asked my daughter to help me take control of my hair loss and together we shaved my head. With my daughter by my side, I shed more than just hair that afternoon—we solidified our bond in a moment of shared vulnerability and tenderness. This was a pivotal moment in my journey, transforming a potentially passive experience of loss into an active stance of empowerment and resilience with the help and courage of my daughter. 

The weight of the clippers in her hand mirrored the weight of the moment. As each strand fell away, so too did the fear and uncertainty. In its place bloomed a sense of empowerment, of re-claiming agency in the face of adversity. With my head held high, I embraced my new reflection, finding beauty and strength in the rawness of the moment.

The journey from diagnosis to acceptance was not without its challenges. The practicalities of navigating daily life with a changed appearance loomed large, but I was determined not to be defined by my illness. I wanted normalcy, not pity, and found solace in the unwavering support of those around me.

I reached out to Wig Studio 1 and was connected to a personal hair consultant. From my very first consultation with Anna, I felt seen, heard, and empowered. Her own journey with wigs served as a roadmap for my own, guiding me toward a sense of confidence and self-assurance I hadn't thought possible.

With Anna's guidance, I embarked on a journey of exploration and self-discovery, delving into the world of wigs with a newfound sense of excitement and possibility. BelleTress quickly became my brand of choice, their soft fibers and impeccable craftsmanship providing a lifeline in moments of doubt.

And so, armed with a newfound sense of confidence and a wardrobe of stylish wigs, I stepped boldly into this new chapter of my life. Each wig became more than just a fashion statement—it was a symbol of resilience, a testament to the strength and beauty that lies within each of us.

Through it all, I've come to realize that I am not alone on this journey. The women who came before me, their stories woven into the fabric of my own, serve as a source of inspiration and courage. We are warriors, united in our fight against cancer and the stigma of hair loss, and together, we are unstoppable. 

So to anyone facing a similar journey, I say this: embrace the change, lean into the uncertainty, and wear your wig with pride. For in doing so, you'll discover a strength and beauty you never knew you possessed.

   I’d bet that most of us have known someone who took ten years off their age by cutting and/or coloring their hair, losing twenty pounds, or changing up their makeup/skincare, or all of these things. When you are a new wig wearer it’s especially hard to be objective.
