When you think of chemo you usually think of hair loss. The good news is that not all drugs that treat cancer cause hair loss. I highly recommend asking your doctor directly to find out for sure.

Let's do a little flashback first: Over a 4 year period I worked over 100 shows supporting the stylists creating the looks for the runway with hair extensions and wigs. You wouldn't believe just how much hair extensions and wigs are used for the models hitting the runway. Almost every model that walks the runway has something in her hair. Not having alternative hair of some kind is the exception and not the rule. One of the best and most coveted shows to work was (and [...]
Sometimes a hairdresser will start out being right for you, but over time lose her/his motivation and creativity. Usually this means it's time for a change. What are some of the signs that you're dealing with the WRONG hairdresser or that your good hairdresser's "gone bad"? Is your stylist in a rut?
