Hi Bon, I am sorry missed this and didn’t have lots of time when I (finally ) connected on stylists(/for others reference too): a) Echo
Who worked @ WilliamC. I’ve heard and seen is awesome !

B) Jamie Elmore founder of ASG and owner of J Salon

Has lot of experience in cosmology and is fellow alocepian (:. Her salon also has a woman who specializes in hair pieces

C) In addition, since the first two
are in Seattle, maybe reach out to June Secreto leader for NAAF for her referral list, as sure has more and maybe north end/closer to you.

Take care
PS May I ask if could please list that Facebook group you found to be so supportive? The International Alopecia Day, ASG and BC are good too. Thanks

Hi Everyone, I have come to a point that my hair is so thin I need the name of a hairdresser around the greater Seattle/Everett area who knows about our condition and can hopefully cut my hair so I can still wear it on occasion.  This pandemic coupled with a recent assault by a stranger and losing my hair....well it's just time to stop wearing it up and get it cut before a depression sets in.  The profile pic here was taken in I believe 2016?  I still had quite a lot of hair in 2017 but not now.  SO PLEASE PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN SUGGEST A HAIRDRESSER WHO IS FAMILIAR WITH ALOPECIA LET ME KNOW? Take good care of yourselves.  I am going to continue exercising and taking care of my general health.  Intellectually I know I am not my body or hair but they ARE mine to take the best care of I can. I wish you all some laughter, joy and gratitude during this time of challenges.  Be and stay well.  Thank you,  Bon

Dear Bon, 

I am sorry for typo with my first message to you and how may have missed some of mine/delay. I have messaged you my number and been seeing if there are any scheduled upcoming WA meets without luck yet. Please call or text me. As I am not always on this site and connecting directly may be clearer and quicker.


I get driving not far and traffic in the area can be awful. I take public transport and Lyft etc can be more stress-free. And nice thing Sounder runs out of Everett south and area is getting better with alternatives. I have found the train, etc. to be relaxing if have time to take it.

I will be caregiving next month on weekend in Snohmish and could meet for a bit. Right now have to say tentative; as I been having some health flares and feeling over stretched.

Lastly, I will try see about if others are able /want to meet.

I would attend for sure.  I live in Everett and don't like driving long distances but I have just been diagnosed with Lichen Planopaliris. I have tried repeatedly to get a response from someone but perhaps since I'm new to this site it's me.  I am moving into acceptance through prayer, meditation, support from friends and being open about it and not always hiding it. PLEASE, someone respond to this. I'd really appreciate it.  Bon

Hi Bob,

Thank you ! I’m sorry about diagnosis I don’t know that one and shall research. I haven’t had an official term for what I have, since I got disillusioned with the dermatologist - it was super expensive and they didn’t really know anything about alopecia, that I didn’t and no “bed aide manner”. This was after a long line of specialist, that were similar  too...Lastly, I get how having a diagnosis/knowing something is relieving.

Alopecia areata except I can I have the opposite over. And haven’t condition term for it. lol So glad you use condition too, (Dislike the term disease with alopecia..) I concur that counting blessings, working on health and getting support and opening up can be helpful, as well as acceptance. Secondly, I do know personally can be challenging and empowering to meet others.

I live more south sound, may I ask if  would you be open to going more south? However sometimes am north, there are others and be happy to meet. Also even more north know someone.

Thirdly, feel free to reach out to me via private message if you want and anytime.Thanks and wish you a great week too. hugs!
