1. Being bald is terrifying and freeing all at the same time. (No offense men). Buying a wig, or as I call it “head squirrel” is a chance for you to change your look, so try on LOTS of looks! But do stay away from that rainbow Afro wig we always see in the stands at football games.
2. Go to a reputable place to be fitted for a wig. VERY IMPORTANT. If you live in the Capital Region, I highly recommend To Life in Delmar and Saratoga. They are wonderful people!
3. Bring friends with you for the fitting. You definitely need some moral support, and a little wine wouldn’t hurt either.
4. Remember that beneath whatever wig you choose, you are still YOU! Hair, no hair. Pink hair, blue hair. (Perhaps I am on a Dr. Seuss roll here…) You are still the woman you were before you heard the “C word” and had chemo.
YOU CAN DO THIS!!! And if you need some laughs, read my book “How Connie Got Her Rack Back” to hear about all of my wig calamities
