Sue shares how she styles her hair while dealing with hair loss.
There’s very few styles that I can wear. I, for years, would look in a fashion magazine when I was getting my haircut and I would say to the stylist, “I want my hair to look like that,” and if it wasn’t a really great stylist they would say, “Okay,” and then they would cut my hair apparently the way that it looked in the magazine, but on me it was totally different, and what I would end up doing is I would end up styling it the way that I always did before.
Then when I noticed the difference when I go to a stylist that knew what they were talking about and especially a stylist that knew how to deal with people with thin hair, they would say, “Well, it’s not going to look like that because you can see on the top that this woman’s hair is very thick and very filled in and your hair is not going to look like that so I wouldn’t recommend that style.”
So I have pretty much kept to the same style for quite a while and it gets a little boring but there’s not a whole lot I can do, and as the years have progressed, especially since I am beyond 50, this is really in, in terms of styles. I used to be able to in my 30s and 40 I had a couple of different styles that I could wear but no longer.
