Confidence Beyond Hair Loss

Rachael Kaminski 50 Views

Confidence Beyond Hair Loss is about offering one-on-one, personal wig consultation, customization, maintenance and sales for those dealing with hair loss due to cancer treatments and health issues. I lost my hair due to chemotherapy treatments. I felt alone with no one to turn to. At the time wish I had someone to sit down with and talk about my needs, my lifestyle, what I was looking for in a wig before I purchased one.  As a cosmetologist I did lots of research yet still felt lost. Some wigs involve the maintenance, time involved in the styling process, some are an investment upfront. There are endless options to choose from and having someone who truly cares about the wig/hair piece wearer is most important to me. Confidence Beyond Hair Loss is unique in that we cut the wig with it on the guest. We look at their facial features, their overall style and can customize it to their needs. We are all about the guest, and helping them feel like their most beautiful selves.

Impact

The man, women or child dealing with hair loss, wether temporary due to cancer treatments or long term like alopecia will receive a private, one-on-one consultation to talk about their goals weather it be a new wig/hair piece, customization or maintenance of one they already own. With any service they are gaining confidence because they are treated with love and support by someone who can relate to having lost her hair due to chemotherapy. They will leave feeling beautiful and empowered.

What I Will Do With $5,000

If I was awarded the grant, I would spend $1,000 on additional educational classes to learn more about alternative hair brands. $1,500 would go towards advertising and $2,500 would go into purchasing wigs, and toppers to have as samples.
