Hair Systems of Long Island Hosts Womens Hair Loss Seminar At Two Locations

womens hair loss An informative Women’s Hair Loss Seminar is scheduled for Tuesday, March 10th, and Wednesday, March 11th, 2015 at local hair studios in Long Island. Kayla Martell, former Miss America Finalist, will be guest speaker.

Kayla is speaking out, bringing focus to women’s hair loss and education on what are the causes and newest solutions now available to women.

New technology has made possible advancements in treatment for hair loss. Most women do not know where to go or who to trust.







For this reason, Kayla is touring the US and sharing her own experience of losing her hair at age 11 due to Alopecia. She competed in Miss Delaware bald, but quickly learned from a judge who advised that she needs hair to pin on the crown.

Years later, having found her solution, Kayla competed and won Miss Delaware 2010. She went on to be a top finalist in Miss America pageant in 2011.

Additional speaker will be Rhonda McCarthy, national-renowned hair loss expert from Ft Lauderdale, FL. “So many women do not understand what is happening to them, often blaming themselves for their hairloss, and as a result get depressed and often drop out of life socially”, says Rhonda. “Our role is to connect women to local studios within their geographic area.

We seek the most reputable hair loss studios that offer multiple solutions and they must qualify to our standards before being approved to be included in the Women’s Hair Loss Seminars. We’re excited to be coming to Hair Systems of Long Island, a superb studio group that we have worked with for years!”

These seminars are being hosted by Hair Systems of Long Island on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 in Levittown and on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 in Commack. “Women lose their hair for so many more reasons than men” says Donna Emerson, manager of Commack, “Knowing what’s causing your hair loss is the first step to finding a solution.”

Dena Caprioli, manager of Levittown, adds, “Women that visit us are amazed at what options are available. We fit the solution to each women’s individual lifestyle needs. There’s not one-fix that works for everyone.”

Hair Extensions Undetectable by Sight or Touch

dream hairSevlor, Co., announced that Dream Hair Blending, EU Hair Extension and Hair Reconstruction Awards winner in 2013, has introduced to North America its undetectable and completely non-damaging hair blending extensions.

Known in Europe for their natural and undetectable hair replacement and hair extension technology “Hair Blending Enhancements & Extensions™”, the company’s R&D team is credited with creating an innovative alternative to salon, clip-in and wire hair extensions.






Founder August DiChristina explains: “We received many requests from women in America and Canada for our hair blending extensions, while they were only available in Europe.

Salon hair extension wearers are concerned about scalp and hair damage experienced with glues and bonds, and high maintenance costs. Clip in and wire extensions are less expensive options, but have obvious drawbacks. Hair blending extensions were created based on my experiences, and those of our clients.

Our technology ensures a flawless, secure fit that does not burden hair with glues, bonds, clips or wires.

Undetectable by sight or touch, women won’t suffer embarrassing noticeable sewn-wefts, bonds, tapes or clips, which are typical of other hair extensions.”

Watch the Dream Hair difference:

Klaus Miller, industry expert recommends Dream Hair Blending to salons and medical community specializing in alopecia, hair thinning, and traction alopecia resulting from hair extensions.

Miller notes a lack of will by the industry to address critical issues of hair extensions, including damage, comfort, bulk and attachments difficulties. Citing Dream Hair Blending’s technology as “impressive,” he describes their approach as “out of the box,” focused on the user’s perspective instead of traditional cheap, fast, and high profit manufacturing, which dominates the industry.

About Dream Hair Blending:

In 2007, Dream Hair Blending began offering their wig alternative, Hair Blending Enhancements. Through on-going R&D, the company has helped women worldwide with hair loss issues and lack of length or volume.

Hair Blending Extensions™ offers daily wear or semi-permanent options and styling versatility, including up-do’s and high ponytails. Available in several colors and densities, the company’s proprietary design ensures easy blending with wearer’s own hair.
