As you might have seen, Emma from #AspireNorth came down to see me on Saturday 19th April. Our plan was to put the finishing touches to my training, go through the stock I will be carrying and discuss all the opportunities available to us.
We met with three different clients, each of whom is at a different stage of their journey. It was absolutely fascinating talking about other people's experiences and feeling like I can do a bit to help out!
Client one, is a new client for Aspire. J, is just starting out on her journey; experiencing Hairloss which began two months ago and was originally expected to be Alopecia Areata. Continued loss has prompted her to opt for a custom-made, human hair wig with a lace front and in the meantime, the Blake by Jon Renau offers a fab safety net. J is fantastic; really positive and outgoing and generally quite sorted with the hairloss. Sure she's disappointed it's happening, but she's a great ambassador for positive thinking. I really enjoyed meeting her and sharing experiences at the same time as discussing wigs. The Blake is now winging it's way to us and will be with J by the end of the week!
Client two, L, has had total hairloss for several years and is au fait with all things wig. Her biggest challenge is a petite head which means wigs can be baggy or loose when worn. She was looking for a new style for summer and the Jon Renau petite range offers plenty of diversity. L is reaching a stage where she is confident bald, has a lovely and extremely supportive husband and wants to have the choice between hair and no hair. She was really inspiring and fun!
Client three, K, has been in touch with Emma for several years but they have never met! She's a total Follea convert and as she said "Follea feels like a part of her". She was interested in the new 5055 colour and fell in love with it the minute she walked through the door! It looked absolutely cracking and she was a total convert. K was full of brilliant anecdotes and talked about the virtues of Follea and of the Zara wig which she uses just for holiday!
Something which struck me throughout all the appointments is that Alopecia is tough for everyone; the person involved and their family. However more important that that, it has the potential to bring out the best in people and I'm proud to have met these three ladies! I can't call them consultations really, it was more like meeting new friends and getting the opportunity to chat about something I'm passionate about! Long may it continue and here's to meeting many more fellow Alopecians!
Coming back to Emma and Me and it wasn't just consultations; we also talked about our grand plans for Aspire and met up with Mark Blake from Mark Blake Trichology. There's lots in the pipeline and we cannot wait to share them all with you in the near future!
