  • Spencer Kobren Tells The Bald Truth To The Washington Post

    Washington Post reporter Cathy Alter, documents one man’s effort to find a solution to his hair loss through non-surgical hair replacement, and discuses the emotional aspects of hair loss that society still seems to overlook. The article titled “What Lies Beneath,” also discusses our inability to mourn the loss of our hair due to society’s perception of hair loss and hair replacement.

    It’s a fraternity that no one wants to belong to,” says Spencer Kobren, founder of the American Hair Loss Association. “It’s almost like ‘Fight Club.’ The first rule about our club is: Don’t talk about our club.

    Excerpt:

    David Maciukiewicz sits in a leather swivel chair and regards himself in the mirror. He rotates slightly into profile and pats down some errant hair at his temple. He moves his hand slowly around the perimeter of his head, fluffing up certain sections and smoothing down others, until he’s completely satisfied with the condition of his coif. The result: a thick helmet with slightly poofed bangs.

    “I’ll do it myself,” he responds.

If this isn’t scary enough, the pink slips stacked even higher and faster in the month of December with 632,000 Americans losing their jobs.

    Over the past year and a half, we’ve watched our country battle the collapse of our housing market and have witnessed a lending lockup that has forced America to change the way it does business.

    The U.S. economy may be headed for it’s deepest, darkest, and longest recession since World War ll, and as America’s fear mounts, so does the toll this all takes on consumer confidence and spending. With a 7.2% unemployment rate, which is said to be heading to 10% by the year’s end, Americans are tightening their collective belts in an effort to make ends meet. All the while we are a country at war.

    It doesn’t sound good does it? How is the small business owner, or the working man going survive this devastating economic downturn? How are we going to pay our mortgages, our car notes, and feed our families? Well if you’re asking me, my answer is this, find a way to get into the business of hair. Read more ›
