Hi Lauren, I have a client in Philly who used a stylist named Tobi at Hush Salon.  I'm sorry I don't have more info, but if you Google, you can probably get more info.  Also, I have another client from Richboro PA who used Anita Polin at Anita M. Studio.  She has a private room.  I'm not "recommending" these people but they have been recommended to me by my own clients. Another possibility is Carmine & Co. in Warrington PA and Lisa Garman at Salon Ruby   in Hershey.  If you end up using any of these, let me know how it goes.  As I said, they are only suggestions from my own clients.

Hi! I am in the process of purchasing a freedom wig. My rep told me that it will be shipped in October. 

I wondered if anyone had any suggestions of stylists in my area. I live near Harrisburg, PA. Philly would be okay or Baltimore even. A little farther is okay, I just have no idea where to go to get it styled!

My rep recommended a stylist in NYC, however, that is a little far from me and she said the stylist is really expensive. I am not against going there and ultimately will if I can't find somewhere else, but I would prefer to go somewhere more convenient! She asked me if I had a stylist in mind but I don't know anyone who has experience cutting these wigs!!

Thanks :) 

Lauren

Hi KK2, I'm sorry, but the answer is no.  You can't wear a Freedom without committing to shaving your head.  The suction is dependent on you having a clean shaven or bald head in order for the vacuum fit to work.  When or if you get to that point, then you might be ready for a Freedom.  I realize how difficult it is to come to terms with this type of alopecia.  Everyone arrives at the point when they are willing to shave what they have at a different point.  Make sure that the guy you are dating is someone who will accept you as you are.  You are worth it.  If he isn't the one, don't lose sleep over him and wait for a guy who loves you for who you are.  They are out there - I can promise you that because most of my clients as well as myself are happily married to great men.

Hi,

I'm 24 years old and have had thinning hair since I was a teen. 2 years ago my hair got to a bad point where I had to begin using hair fibers to cover up my scalp. I went to an endocrinologist and tricholigist he was diagnosed with PCOS which was said to cause my AA. Since then ive been used minoxidil, a laser cap, take vitamins and I've done some PRP treatments which seemed to help at first but again not enough to where I could walk out without any cover up in my hair. I recently did a treatment again and am waiting to see if it will help but my hair overall seems a lot thinner and worse. It's getting difficult to cover it up and quite exhausting as well. I am constantly worried that people can see my scalp. My anxiety level has skyrocketed and I've been feeling extremely depressed and not wanting to be in public. I just started dating a guy which makes me even more nervous and self conscious about all of this. I want to be able to be my old fun self but I just feel so uncomfortable all the time. My new bf really wants to take a trip to a tropical place which is why a wig I can swim in and wear as my own is very important to me. I haven't yet told him about my AA but am going to this weekend. I was looking into wearing wigs and seeing if my hair will heal. However I would need a wig I can swim in and if possible shower in occasionally. I found freedom hair wigs which seems amazing and I am going to meet with a rep next week. However, I've been hearing that it's a must to shave my head which is a step Im not ready for and don't know if I will be. Is there any way to wear a freedom wig without shaving my head? Maybe using a different type cap?

Hi Pat, some of my friends are too - but not me!  There's a good mix among my friends - some go grey and some will always color.  You CAN do it with a Freedom, but it is more complicated because the human hair grey will take color if you need to refresh the hair that is NOT grey in your piece and the only way to avoid that is to use synthetic grey which isn't ideal.  I just figure that it is a great excuse to look younger!!

Good on your mum Debbie, ! I don't know why I'm concerned about NOT going grey, maybe because some of my friend are letting theirs go au natural lol...I'm a crazy mixed up bald woman lol

Can anyone recommend a stylist to cut in my new freedom wig in the New York City, Philadelphia, New Jersey area?
Thanks

Oh, and Pat, my Mom, who died in May at the age of 101 and 5 months, NEVER went grey.  She had a standing appointment at the colorist and was auburn until her last day.  Going grey is a choice, not a necessity!!  LOL!  Personally, I'm thrilled that I'll never go grey!  It doesn't suit my coloring.

Thanks Debbi, that's very helpful indeed. Good to know it's not ash and I love the idea of highlights.
