Helping women, one by one, find their inner confidence…

Hair loss is something we see in both men and women and whilst many professionals often speak about the various causes behind male and female hair thinning, they seldom discuss the many psychological effects which come hand in hand with it. 

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, a massive forty percent of women have visible hair loss by the time they are 40. Whilst many online publications are keen to offer “miracle hair thickening serums” which may or may not work, not many discuss how losing hair affects thousands psychologically and emotionally.

Many male and female sufferers of hair loss often battle with self-esteem issues, depression and anxiety. That being said, studies have shown that women in particular have a more difficult time adjusting to hair loss and are more likely to develop a negative body image due to it.

Furthermore, surveys have shown that many women who suffer with hair loss feel that it affects their career. They feel employers are less likely to hire someone who is balding as they are perceived as being older.

Many men and women who feel that they are balding often develop a fixation on the area which is affecting them. Although conditions such as alopecia, trichotillomania and male/ female patterned baldness are not life threatening they can have an immense psychological impact on the quality of life of the sufferers. Anxiety, depression, social phobias and even suicidal thoughts are increasingly common among patients.

At Perfect Fringe we want women to know there is a solution. We offer everything from clip in bangs, fake fringes, ponytails, silk base closures, lace base toppers, seamless fillers and 3 piece toppers to make having “thick” hair as easy and natural looking as possible.

A problem which many hair loss sufferers face is that classic hair extensions only add volume and length to certain areas. Not to mention that the way there are attached to the hair often causes further thinning in certain areas as the extensions tend to pull on their already weak hair.

We have dedicated time and research to create high quality hair pieces which tackle every area of hair loss. Every single hair piece is handmade using Brazillian Remy hair and will not cause thinning, breakage or damage to your hair.  Whilst we can’t bring your old hair back, we do offer an easy solution to thousands of women who want thick hair without having to wear a wig. Most importantly, the most rewarding aspect of our job is that we help so many women with thinning hair find the inner confidence which hair loss took away from them.
