How Tackling Hair Loss Changed Cynthia’s Life


Cynthia T., Xtrands+® client and Hair Club employee, is the epitome of grace and charm. She’s giving and often puts the needs of others before her own. Almost two decades ago, she gave birth to her first child, and her focus was entirely on her new bundle of joy. That’s why it was months before she noticed her hairline receding. Cynthia chalked it up to the stress of being a new mom and found a style that would hide her thinning hair. Unfortunately, her hair loss only worsened through her second pregnancy and the untimely death of her husband.

Women’s Hair Loss Is a Virtual Prison

As a single mother of two, Cynthia’s hair loss had progressed to a point where she could no longer hide it. She had always been a people person, but she started withdrawing from social situations because of her thinning hair. “You mentally feel like everyone is looking past your eyes, right to your head,” she said.

Cynthia felt imprisoned by the loss of her hair. She wanted her life back, but didn’t know what to do. Luckily, while looking for a career change in 2012, she was hired by Hair Club. Her new job as an Image Consultant allowed her to see firsthand the difference Hair Club makes in the lives of their clients. She watched women and men of all ages, with every type of hair and every level of loss, transform their appearance and their outlook on life.

Real Results for Thinning Hair

Cynthia was ready take control of her hair loss and get her life back to what it once was. Just six months after starting at Hair Club, Cynthia became a client. She was comforted by the fact that she was around people who understood what she was going through. “Everyone at Hair Club, from the consultants to the stylists, really understands the physical and emotional issues that come with hair loss,” said Cynthia. “They feel your pain.”

Cynthia immediately felt a weight lift off her shoulders once she had the hair she’d been longing for. Just a few weeks after deciding to do something about her hair loss, she looked in the mirror and saw a reflection she hadn’t seen in a long time. “I looked like me again, vibrant and younger,” she said. “I even cried a little bit. I finally felt comfortable again. I didn’t have to hide anymore.”

The Freedom of a Full Head of Hair

Now in their teens, Cynthia’s children love what Hair Club has done for their mom. They’ve noticed how confident she is and the boost she got from having a full head of hair that makes her feel beautiful. Today, Cynthia goes to the gym and doesn’t have to worry about her hair anymore. Her social life is strong and best of all, she was recently engaged to be married!

“I feel like a seventeen-year-old with my whole life in front of me,” said Cynthia. “I can’t thank Hair Club enough for walking with me on this journey, and setting me free from the prison I was in. They really helped me get my life back.”
