Stephanie - CCHD Solutions Specialist
Hi, I'm Stephanie!
I am a proud fur mommy to 2 beautiful dog babies. Artemis is 2 and a Pit/Australian Shepherd mix and Miya is 1 and a Pit/Lab mix. They are my heart and the reasons why I always wonder where my money is going :-). My mommy has been my biggest inspiration and biggest fan my entire life and I absolutely dote on my 25 year old, 6'4" baby brother. I have a Master's degree in Management and Leadership, I am obsessed with Game of Thrones (books and show) and ancient history/mythology, my spirit animal is the elephant (elephant merchandise is all over my house), music is my second voice, I live in the middle of nowhere, and I love makeup. I haven't figure out how to contour yet and I honestly don't have the time to do it. I have things to do.
I have been wearing wigs on and off for about 2 years. I had beautiful, long, healthy hair up until I graduated from college. After graduation, my hair in the middle part of my head just started falling out. The rest of my hair was healthy still, but I had this huge missing patch of hair in the middle of my head.
I eventually shaved it all off myself and have been wearing my hair natural for 3 years now, but the middle part falls out at random times. Come to find out, I have stress related alopecia, which made sense when I thought about it. Graduating from college, trying to find a job, and figuring out this whole "adulting" thing is so stressful that it caused large chunks of my hair to fall out. I generally only wear my wigs to job interviews and when I go out with the 3 friends I have.
I am absolutely excited and so grateful to be a part of the CysterWigs team! This has so far been the most rewarding job I have ever had and I'm so thankful for the chance to learn more about wigs and to help others learn more too. Despite the hair loss we all have faced, we are such strong and beautiful individuals!
Favorite Wig: I really love Contempo Cut by Gabor
Preferred Cap Construction: Open cap. I hate when my head and scalp get hot, so an open cap construction helps me to stay cool up top.
How Long I've Been Wearing Wigs: About 2 years. It's been on and off so I'm generally new to wig wearing.
Advice I Wish I had Known from the Beginning: It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks or sees. Self confidence is something no one else can give me, I bestow that on myself.
