Tired of hiding bald patches? Get your confidence back!

Our appearance can determine how self-confident we feel, and hair plays a huge part. While we can change an outfit or hide certain skin imperfections with makeup, it’s much more difficult to hide bald spots like those caused by trichotillomania (trik-o-til-o-MAY-nee-uh). 

As many as 10 million people in the US, including several A-list celebrities, suffer from this anxiety-induced condition. The mental “hair-pulling disorder” involves recurrent, irresistible urges to pull out hair from the scalp, eyebrows or other areas of the body. It is extremely difficult to stop and, over time, can lead to persistent bald spots/long-term hair loss. The overwhelming stress of having to hide or disguise these patches can interfere with everyday life, social relationships, and even work. 

For Leslie Jacobs, the trichotillomania started during middle school, making her a target for bullies. She remembers wearing a beanie every day to cover the bald patches. “Kids used to pull my braids and ask if they were attached to my beanie,” says Jacobs. Back then, few people knew about the disorder or how to manage its symptoms. 

With no idea what to do and her self-confidence crushed, Jacobs settled for years of wearing itchy hats, sweaty wigs, and always standing at parties so nobody could see her scalp. Finally, she discovered the luxury line of Tiffany Scott Extensions at Tiffany Scott Salon.  

“Before I went to Tiffany, I had not gotten a haircut in 8 years. It was a big leap of faith to have someone touch my hair.” Having worked with several clients suffering from trichotillomania, Scott offered heartfelt support and (even better) a long-lasting, gorgeous solution. 

“Tiffany made me feel so comfortable and the quality of my extensions is amazing. She perfectly color matched my hair for a natural look and showed me how to style it in a trendy way.” The Tiffany Scott Extension line offers 27 colors in 16” and 20” lengths. Designed for everyday use, the clip-in hair extensions transform your look within minutes (without the commitment of regular salon visits) and can last up to two years with proper care. 

“Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but it's our hair that is truly our best friend,” Jacobs shares. Pulled back, styled, or even on roller coasters, her extensions stay put. "My confidence level goes up tenfold every time I leave Tiffany’s salon - not just how I look, but how I operate as a person. I wish I would have found out about this when I was younger. I hope there is a mom who reads this and knows there is a way to help their daughters so they don’t feel lost the way I did.”

Here are just a few reasons why Tiffany Scott Extensions are ideal for those suffering with trichotillomania:

They allow people to clip the hair extension right above the patch where the hair is thinning or has stopped growing.

The clip-on extensions can be easily removed when working out at the gym or when it's time for bed so that they are not being pulled on during those times.

Extensions help provide people with more body, volume, and length.

People will not be able to tell that hair extensions are being worn.People can learn to put the clip-in hair extensions in themselves and remove them easily. This gives them control over being able to use them when and where they see fit.

They can be matched for color, length, and style to look natural.

They provide instant volume and give the people a more youthful, confident appearance.

Tiffany Scott Salon offers a full-service line specializing in high-quality hair extensions and offering every type of extension. The salon also offers cuts, colors, styles, treatments, and four types of hair extensions, including keratin, weft, tape, and clip-in (which were the first retail items sold to customers). The salon uses only the highest quality natural hair sourced from Europe and the first line of reusable keratin extensions on the market. Kelly Brianne and Selena Gomez are among the numerous celebrities who wear Tiffany Scott Extensions.
