Hair Club® Can Help with Hair Loss Triggered by the Stress of Planning a Wedding

Getting married is certainly blissful, but there's a lot to worry about when planning nuptials. From finding the perfect dress and creating a seating plan to choosing a caterer that won't bust the budget, wedding planning can be daunting. All the little decisions add up quickly, becoming overwhelming-and stressful.

Did you know that extreme stress, along with hormonal changes, genetics and certain medications, are key factors that may cause or contribute to hair loss in women? While everyday stress won't cause your hair to fall out, there are three types of hair loss that can be associated with high stress levels:

  • Trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder that drives individuals to pull their hair out. If left untreated, it can result in noticeable bald spots. Hair pulling can be a way of coping with stress, anxiety or other negative feelings.
  • Telogen effluvium occurs when significant stress or a shock to the body forces a considerable amount of hair follicles into the resting phase of growth. Within a few months of the stressful or shocking event, the impacted hairs may suddenly fall out, causing visible hair loss.
  • Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that causes the immune system to mistakenly attack hair follicles. Many factors contribute to alopecia areata, including high stress levels.

"Hair loss in women is more common than you might realize," said Lee Zoppa, Hair Club's Vice President of Marketing and Advertising. "In fact, more than 40 million women in the United States are experiencing hair loss or thinning."

Even though the condition is widespread, for brides-to-be and women everywhere, hair loss can be a taboo subject. This is why many women don't know where to turn for information they can trust.

Women tend to lose their hair differently than men, with the most common symptoms being diffuse hair loss all over the scalp or a widening of the part. The good news is that no matter the type of hair loss, there are a variety of options available. Hair Club offers customized solutions for every level of hair loss. What's more, the licensed cosmetologists and hair loss experts at Hair Club work as a team to ensure every client looks and feels their best.

"Our mission is to enhance the image of every one of our clients and it's the heart of what we do," said Zoppa. "We help people get their hair back and we walk them through every step of their hair restoration journey, providing useful tips, information and advice."

With an entire team of professionals supporting brides-to-be, Hair Club can help reduce anxiety caused by hair loss and make stress more manageable. This is especially important as the wedding day nears and emotions run high.

"Know that hair loss doesn't have to add to the stress of planning a wedding. Let us alleviate that worry," said Zoppa. "We're here to help people restore their hair and transform their lives."
