I was recently asked to do some modelling for Hipheadwear. At first I was a bit unsure, as it wasn't my thing… but I thought I'd give it a go.
I'm so glad I did! I had so much fun and got to see the extensive range of head wear, turbans and headscarves that Hipheadwear provide.
As I’m a newbie to Alopecia I recently stopped wearing wigs, which meant it was either go bald or wear a beanie. In spring it's been a little too warm for a beanie and too cold to go bald so I was really stuck with what to do. Having discovered the head wear for hair loss range my problem has been solved! There is something for all seasons and all occasions.
Two of my favourite headwear pieces so far are the " Nightcap" and the “All seasons Bandana”.
I recently attended a naming day celebration which was outdoors, and the weather was beautiful. I was happy to go with my shiny bald head but later in the evening it started to cool down which is when I wore my All seasons Bandana. It went well with my outfit and kept me warm without me having to put on a winter beanie and ruining my outfit :)
And I just love the nightcap! At night I get cold due to having no hair and the sleepcap is a saviour! I can actually sleep through the night now, without waking up and having to bury myself under the duvet. I have one for at home and one for at work as I do night shifts. The fit is so comfy! It keeps the back of your neck warm and is designed so when you turn over in your sleep it doesn't come off! It's perfect.
When I first got diagnosed with Alopecia and lost my hair I thought I'd be a wig wearer forever. Now I have a drawer full of stylish head wear and I love it!
