Hair loss is an incredibly emotional experience, but it’s also surprisingly common. By age 35, about 66% of men will have experienced hair loss to some degree. About 40% of women will begin experiencing noticeable hair loss by age 50. Then as we age, the likelihood of hair loss only increases. Even though it’s something that countless humans will go through during their lifetime, hair loss can still be highly emotional. Salons have a unique opportunity to guide clients through turmoil and navigate the stigma of hair loss, no matter its cause.
In honor of National Hair Loss Awareness Month, this article introduces strategies salons can implement to be professional, supportive, and compassionate while actively combating the stigma associated with hair loss.
