In last week’s blog post, I talked about how you can start to tackle your hair loss right now. If you have begun to collect the hairs that fall out each day, then I want to discuss the next steps.
We want to evaluate various factors or your lifestyle at different times to see how problems might be progressing. You should note that hair loss is related to what happened yesterday – not today. We will likely have forgotten what might have caused it, because the loss becomes noticeable only after the events that triggered it. I encourage my clients to keep a diary or a journal of their hair loss over a ninety-day period – which represents the cycle of hair. I encourage you to do the same before you begin addressing your hair loss concerns constructively, and continue to alter.
Hair is a fabric. Just like with your favorite outfit or that great pair of leather boots you wear… each fabric has a life expectancy based on the amount of use or overuse you put into it. The same is true for your hair replacement system. There’s no exact timeline as to when someone needs a new system or how long a hair system lasts. It varies on the way you wear and take care of your hair.
For the guest, at Jeffrey Paul Salon, who has selected the extended wear attachment option, the wear and tear that goes into wearing a system everyday is quite extensive. Think about it, even your absolute favorite outfit that you may wear 2 times a week (Don’t worry…I won’t tell!) gets taken on and off. The extended wear attachment method gives the wearer the opportunity to live a more uncompromised life style because the hair system is attached. At the same time, it can also cause a hair system to wear even faster.
Whether you have extensions, an integration system or a full hair replacement system, I highly recommend investing in two hairpieces. Why, you may ask? Here are a few of the great benefits having two hair systems that allow you to alternate each month:
Your health is something that you really need to think about with a total body approach. One of the areas we tend to forget about when working on our posture is our hip flexors. Because most of us sit in an office chair for many hours a day, this creates a tightening in our hips, as well as our back and chest. In our final installment of this video series, today’s stretches with Mark Roozen will show you a stretch that works on your hip flexors and your back.
Using a stick to help with balance and control, begin swinging your leg back and forth. Be sure to standing tall and straight up. By kicking your leg back and forth, you are opening up your hips and allowing your back to straighten.

Did you know that our face shape can help us determine the best hairstyle choice for us? Do you know what shape your face is? If not, then it’s time to figure it out!
Watch the video above to help you determine your face shape on your own. I also suggest speaking with your stylist to have him or her help you figure our what your face shape is. Once you determine this, your stylist should be able to match the best hairstyle (cut, length and overall style) to the shape of your face. This will help accentuate your most beautiful features, making you feel even more beautiful on the inside and out!
If you’re interested in learning more about which hairstyles fit best with each face shape, I have listed out and described the goals each hairstyle should have and what styles achieve that goal. Click here to see the samples for each face shape.
Sitting in an office all day hunched over your desk, looking at a computer can really cause back pain. This can actually create a domino effect, as back pain can cause a whole new host of health issues. I challenge you to take care of your back with Mark Roozen’s series of back exercises.
Today, I would like to introduce to you stick squats:
Hold a stick with arms apart above your head.
Sit in a chair position (squat), making sure your hands are still above your head, not bending over.
Carefully stand back up with a straight back.
Repeat this squatted position 5-10 times.
This exercise works on your shoulder flexibility, shoulder rotation, posture, core, lower back mobility, and ankle mobility. This will open your backside up so you can get back to work pain free!
One tip to help you feel better quickly is learning how camouflaging your thinning hair can work for you. I know it can be difficult to hide a bare scalp – it’s still nice out, so we’re not wearing hats quite yet. (Although that time of year is quickly approaching!) My camouflaging trick will help you feel confident and gorgeous, just as you should!
There are a few barriers when trying to cover up thinning hair. Most of us are running around on a daily basis, and with it still being nice out, our bodies sweat or we could experience a few rain showers. These factors can make it difficult to hide hair loss or thinning. Some camouflage makeup can run-off in these situations, but unlike those other products, the physician-developed makeup I suggest using actually seals in place, allowing you to go about your day without any worry and help you continue looking beautiful on the inside and out!
Here is the second installment of my Wellness Series on “How to Live Pain Free.” Did you know that your posture can even affect your breathing? And if you are not getting the right amount of oxygen, it can lead to a host of problems, including making you feel fatigued? Watch this video to experience Mark Roozen’s, our strength and conditioning coach, first exercise to living a pain free life.
Take a stick and place your hand on each end.
Bring your shoulders back by rotating the stick around your head.
Repeat this motion going the other direction.
By doing this motion at home or in your office, it should help straighten your posture and stretch out your back, giving you more energy for your day.
Stay tuned to next week, when I show you the next video in this series. For more health and wellness tips, make sure to subscribe to my blog. For more information on Mark Roozen, please visit his blog.
Do you ever feel like your hair is lacking shine or just dull looking? Friends, you are not alone! When speaking to women, lack of shine is one of the most common problems they have with their hair. So, here are two tips on how to get back that shiny hair you desire…and deserve!
1. Use the right kind of brush – A brush that is made with a combination of Mongolian Boar and bristles, will help your hair’s natural oils to be distributed equally and throughout each strand, making your hair silky smooth.
2. Know what type of hair you have – The texture of your hair is very important when selecting products that will not only repair hair, but also help to add shine.
In the video above, watch as I demonstrate how using the right brush and the right type of product, based on your hair’s texture, will help add back the shine your hair has been lacking.

At my hair restoration center, my team and I specialize in helping women restore their hair that has begun to thin or has been lost. I find that my guests don’t necessarily want to stand out with the highest fashion looks, but instead want to look “normal” again. My team and I strive to help our guests not only get back to feeling normal… but more importantly feeling beautiful.
Recently one of my hair restoration specialists, Megan, came to me with a story about a guest she had seen who was struggling with Trichotillomania. Megan explained that our guest had been invited to a formal event and wanted an updo to compliment the gown she planned to wear. She did not feel comfortable going to a regular salon, so her doctor referred her to our center. The guest not only walked out looking beautiful, but more importantly she truly felt special… instead of just normal.
