My daughter has had alopecia since she was three. I, sadly, did not find out about Hair Club until she was 17 - and she had to endure some pretty ugly wigs (we have the pictures to prove it). She is now in her 20s and this was the best thing for her. The hair looks great - she can have it cut,styled and colored any way she wants. The staff are very discreet, friendly, and caring. You don't even know she has a full hairpiece.
