Losing your hair is not an experience that anyone signs up for willingly. Our hair is so much part of our identity that its loss can make us feel incomplete and less confident.

We work with each customer to create a personalized solution that addresses their specific circumstances and needs. We treat all types and stages of hair loss from through progressive loss, to advanced conditions including total hair loss. What many hair loss sufferers don't know is that there are hair replacement solutions for every stage of hair loss. We can create solutions regardless of the cause of hair loss and, in many cases, create and treatment programs that can restore and improve your hair.

And, just as importantly, we can cut, style and even your hair and hair loss solutions you the look you want.

About Stress-Related Hair Loss

Are you concerned about the negative effects of stress on your life and the damage this is having on your hair? You’re not alone. Our lives are filled with work and family demands that put us under huge amounts of strain. While we do our best to stay on top of things, this perpetual state of anxiety can have dramatic effects on our general health and well-being.

 

  • Stress and hair loss are closely related. Almost two thirds of people mention stress as the number one reason for their hair’s lack of volume and thickness – ahead of age, hormonal changes, illness and medication. We understand how helpful hair health is to your confidence and happiness. That’s why offer #1 solutions for thicker, fuller-looking hair developed specifically for thinning hair, going to ensure you can live your life to the fullest.

What is Stress?

Stress is the body’s response to either physical or emotional stimuli that it finds threatening. When you suffer from chronic stress, it means that you feel its symptoms over a prolonged period. As part of this, the effects of small daily annoyances are compounded: an argument with your partner, feeling overwhelmed at work or even prolonged hunger can begin to trigger an acute reaction in your body.

When you experience stress, cortisol is released into the body along with various other chemicals and hormones. These are intended to provide you with the sharp adrenalin kick required for a "flight or fight" response. However, chronic stress results in the continuous production of these hormones, which has a two-fold negative effect. First, the level of hormones and chemicals in your blood reaches a point where it cannot be brought back under control. Secondly, this output prevents your organs from producing other important substances, including those which promote hair growth.

How Does Stress Affect Hair Loss?

There are six main reasons why people are affected by hair thinning, with stress and trauma believed to be the second biggest contributing factor after genetics. Stress interrupts your entire body chemistry: not only does it throw your hormones out of balance, but it also irritates the skin and affects the general health of your scalp. The condition of your scalp is very important to hair growth: without a clean, healthy environment in which to grow, the hair will quickly lose luster and become weak and damaged.

One of the most common forms of stress-related hair loss is telogen effluvium. With this condition, high levels of stress prompt the body to alter the natural life cycle of hair. Where normally hair spends 85% of its life in the "anagen" growth phase, sufferers’ hair instead prematurely enters the "telogen" resting phase, whereby the hair is simply left to fall out. Telogen effluvium causes hair shedding across the entire scalp, but it may be particularly noticeable in certain places – if your hairline is thinning, for instance.

Stress can be a trigger for the hair-shedding autoimmune disease Alopecia areata. If this is the case for you, then seeking professional advice from a dermatologist is essential.

Treatment of Stress-Induced Hair Loss

The psychological impact of losing hair cannot be underestimated; it has a direct relationship with our self-image, and therefore self-confidence and self-esteem. Much as there are no concrete means of diagnosing stress-related hair loss, there is no guaranteed solution for its treatment. A doctor may be able to provide creams or medicine to help relieve the most severe side-effects. If you are experiencing thinning hair during a time of extreme emotional distress or anxiety, then it is important to try and improve your mood and ease the tension you are feeling.

The good news is that hair loss due to stress is not permanent and that your hair will grow back to normal once you have removed the source of your anxiety. The best way to assist this is through the improvement of a healthy lifestyle:

  • Eating well and drinking plenty of water will ensure your body has all the right nutrients it needs for optimum activity.
  • Regular exercise is a great way to reduce stress and tension because it releases endorphins that act as natural painkillers.
  • Sleep is essential for physical health since this is when cell renewal and repair occurs.

COVID-19 UPDATE

We care deeply about the health and safety of our customers, employees, and stylists. That is why we want to share the steps we are taking at our salon location.

We are closely monitoring the current situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and are committed to taking appropriate steps to navigate this challenging time.

Our Salon

When you visit our salons, we strive to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Getting your hair cut, colored, or styled should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience for you and your stylist.

Please know that cleanliness and sanitization have always been a big part of running a great hair salon, and we already follow strict guidelines from local health departments. However, due to the current situation, we are increasing and adding to our current supply of cleaning and sanitizing materials to ensure our stylists can clean and disinfect the salon even more thoroughly throughout the course of the day.

Our Employees

As with much of the advice you have seen from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we recommend everyone be conscious of this potential health risk and follow official preventative recommendations. We believe the CDC website is the best destination for that advice.)

In accordance with the CDC’s protocol, we have asked all employees displaying symptoms to avoid coming to work for a period of 14 days. This same guidance is in place for those who live in a household with members who have visited, or who have themselves visited, China, Iran, Italy, or South Korea.

Our Customers

We kindly request that if you are not feeling well, please reschedule your visit for when you are feeling better for the safety of our team and other customers.

As we work through this together, we are committed to providing customers with the information they need to make informed decisions around their salon services.
