Best thing I've ever done for myself!
I've been dealing with thinning hair for several years. In the last year, it had gotten worse, especially in the front. As a woman, this is one of the worst things that you can experience from a vanity perspective.
My initial thought was that I was going to get a wig. However, when I called Eldorado, the person who I spoke with, Pat, told me to keep an open mind when I met with Martin, the owner.
At my initial appointment, Martin suggested that I get a hairpiece. I wan't too keen on the idea, but I figured that he knew best. After I left, having paid my initial deposit, I had second thoughts about it. I won't go into the nightmares! However, I decided to wait and see.
When I first saw my new hair, I almost cried. It looked like an animal plopped on my head. I thought "Oh no. What have I done". However, after my stylist, the fabulous Jolyn, recommended a style, cut and colored my hair and the hairpiece, and then styled it, I fell in love.
WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THIS HAS MADE IN MY LIFE. I was worried that it might be hard for me to deal with and had nightmares about it blowing off of my head. However, it is very easy to maintain and stays in place in high winds - I'm talking top deck of a cruise ship in the open seas! I used to stay out of the wind because it made my hair so see through.
If you are self conscious because of thinning hair, please treat yourself to this place. They are miracle workers in my eyes. Martin Greenblatt KNOWS HAIR. And he knew just the right hairpiece/system for me. And they have private rooms for their clients, so you don't have to worry about anyone but the staff seeing your hair. That was very important to me.
I have only one regret about the whole experience - that I DIDN'T DO IT SOONER!!!
