Looking Like You: A Step-By-Step Guide for Medical Hair Replacement

Barry Hendrickson

"Barry Hendrickson and his staff are like guardian angels." 

-New York Times

"I myself and top NYC stylists refer our clients to Barry Hendrickson for superior service, and the ultimate in quality and style."  

-Edward Tricomi of Warren & Tricomi Salon

My Take:

Looking Like You is a wonderful resource for any woman that is about to embark upon the journey through chemotherapy.  The book discusses the realities of what will happen to your hair during the chemo process in a positive and constructive way.  The visual styling of the book is bright and fun.  The author understands women in this position need something uplifting and happy.  Many of the pages are devoted to great pictures of wig styles, showing how awesome a properly styled wig can look.  Looking Like You is also chalk full of practical advice about choosing a wig, caring for the wig, and keeping yourself healthy.  The author, Barry Hendrickson, is one of the top wig stylists in the world.  He is highly recommended by top stylist, Edward Tricomi (whom you may know as the stylist who does the makeovers on America's Next Top Model) and is sought after by the heavy hitters of the entertainment business.  Basically, this guy knows what he is talking about.  He offers great advice gleaned from actually caring about, and listening to his clients over many years.  If you find yourself in a situation where you would benefit from a book on medical hair replacement, this book is top notch.  I rate this book a 1, Pay Full Price.  

Do you agree with my review?  Do you think I'm totally off base?  Either way I'd love to hear from you, be sure to leave a comment and tell me how you feel!

This book is appropriate for all ages.

I so wish I had of known about this book about a year ago. I underwent chemo for breast cancer and this book would have been a Godsend.

It's refreshing to hear that people out there understand that in writing such a book, you can't let the readers know that the world sees them as a victim. They are just like everyone else, so why not give them the confidence to embrace that, and find happiness where they can? I think the concept of the book is a great idea, and should I ever need it, this will be the first book I turn to in a bad situation. :) Thanks for the review!
