I Have Hair!

Custom Design Hair

I have decent hair for the first time in my life. Yep, I am one of those people with thin, baby fine hair. In fact, when I was a baby my Dad and Grandma shaved my head two times to make my hair growing thicker. If it grew and thicker, then I shudder to think how much finer and thinner my hair would’ve been.

Growing up, I did not think much about my hair until I overheard some matron’s “Poor girl” comment. After that, shampoos and treatments guaranteed to produce thick wavy hair were my quest. Anyone remember the TV commercials from VO5 and Clairol’s Herbal Essence shampoo and rinse? I would’ve really liked to have had hair like Kelly LeBrock, just as Clairol promised.

As an adult, I grew my hair to my waist, substituting length for thickness and volume. I became an expert at creating a bun that made my hair look thick and romantic. Later, as a single mom of two young sons, I had my hair cut short. Time passed. I aged. My hair began to thin and fall out. Gritting my teeth, I did the woman’s version of comb-overs and hair sprayed the strands into a rigid helmet.

In April, Sara Lou came to my rescue with a solution for my thin hair. Snap, snap, snap and I’m ready to go. Yep, I have hair! My oldest told me when I got home, “Mom you look weird with hair, but it’s a good weird.” As a business professional, I no longer have to cringe inside when someone taller than my short self looks down on my head. No more bald spot! I can concentrate on what I am doing without secretly wondering… Did the hairspray hold… Oh no, no rain!

Folks are saying, “man you are looking great! Did you do something with your hair?” Yep, I got hair thanks to Sara Lou…and I love it!

  • Sometime ago we moved from out of state to Northwest Arkansas. For the past 30 years I had worked with the same hair stylist for my hair replacement needs. I thought I had the best stylist going but little did I know the best was yet to come! When I started looking for a new stylist in NWA after the move, every inquiry seemed to point me in the direction of Sara Lou at Custom Design Hair. Quite obviously after working with the same stylist for 30 years I was extremely hesitant about making the change but finally talked myself into making an appointment with Sara Lou. Glad I did, right from the first moment we met I was put at ease with her friendly and personal approach to dealing with my specific needs. I am just sorry it took me 30 years to finally find the best! Sara Lou has a customer friendly can do attitude and after working with me and my situation, I can’t imagine a hair replacement problem that she cannot successfully conquer!
