This is a life-affirming way to help women feel good about themselves, and feel that cancer, their new normal, can’t just take away their identity.”
Nicole Paul, the founder of High Definition Hair®, agreed, and said, “Battling breast cancer is very draining, and something as simple as helping women look like themselves will help them in feeling more empowered and less helpless during their journey.”
