Can anyone give me advice on toppers? My hair has thinned out all over and starting to feel like I need to cover it up. I wanna feel good again and having hair would make that happen. I live in NH but not far from Boston. If anyone could give me advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Michelle!

I actually live in Brighton... only a few minutes from Boston. I needed to get a wig as my hair loss became so extensive and I was unable to hide it with hair powder, creative hairstyles, etc. I was referred to a place in Boston by a friends' friend who went through chemo and lost her hair... she went to The Salon at 10 Newbury. I CANNOT say enough about their facility! The owner, Pat Wrixon, is amazing-plain and simple. She is the most caring and knowledgeable person and will make you feel so comfortable. I went to her last May (a few days before I graduated college) and she worked with me to pick out a wig I loved, get it washed, styled, etc. all BEFORE my graduation date because she knew how important it was to me that I have a head of hair for my graduation and my graduation party. I called and asked to set up a consultation with her and was in the salon almost the next day. Since buying the beautiful wig, I've had regrowth and so I went back to Pat for help transitioning from a wig to a topper, and eventually, my own hair. The topper I have is beautiful and her and her staff styled it perfectly! Honestly, give them a call. I will attach their website and include their phone number and who to contact. I waited so long to go through the process of buying a wig because the experience was intimidating and all around scary, but I can promise you, going to 10 Newbury and meeting Pat has changed my life! I hope you will look into this and consider it - I know how scary and confusing this whole process can be. I only wish I had gone to her sooner!! :)

So here’s the info…
Phone#: 617-247-4900
Contact Person: You will want to schedule a consultation with Pat Wrixon
*Their hours are online at their website*

I hope this helps, Michelle! If you need any more information, have questions, etc., etc., just message me or email me & I’ll be glad to help!

Best of Luck,
