I have been in the hair replacement business for a long time. And anyone that has been in an industry for many years will tell you that there are still surprises. What surprised me yesterday was a client that came to see Mimi for a trim.
She is a lawyer and she never seems to age. Her alopecia areata has caused her to lose enough hair that it requires that she wear a full wig. So when she came in it was a pleasant surprise.
Four or five years ago she took part in a photo shoot that I put together at the Spoke Club showing off our wigs. I cannot believe that she has not aged in all the years I have known her. She is much older (and wiser) than she seems.
She still wears the same style and its timeless on her. I ran into her at Wholefoods across the street a couple hours later. “Nice hair!” I said as I passed her. “Thanks!” she said with a smile.
She has a great smile.
