SAFM Calls upon Andrew Wilson from Transitions Hair
Published: September 22, 2010
Transitions Hair Group is regularly called upon to offer advice and tips in the Media for information on Hair loss, hair loss treatments, hair regrowth and replacement. Below is an excerpt from one such Occasion on SAFM's morning breakfast show with Rabbit, Amber and Cossie. Our Associate Director, Andrew Wilson, was called upon check Cossie's hair – after being on Australia's biggest loser he had suffered some hair loss, due to rapid weight loss, but his fellow compares' were concerned that it might be male pattern baldness/ hair loss.
"It’s perfectly OK to go dancing with my friends, it feels completely secure. Doesn't feel like it's going to come off at all. It does not get nearly as sweaty as what a suction wig would. Quality of the gripper of wigs is quite amazing."
"I’m really thankful to have met the people at Transitions. They understood what I was going through with my hair loss and were very empathetic to my needs - it was quite different from other places I had visited. Most importantly, I love what they have done for my hair, it looks great! I feel so much more confident. I would have no trouble in recommending Transitions to anyone. I wish I had of visited them first!"

Hi Transitions, It's been a while since we last saw you and I just wanted to keep you up to date with Lucy's progress. Basically you saved her! The Follea wig you fitted her with is absolutely amazing, completely natural looking and really beautiful. She went from being depressed and sad to her old lively self again, enjoying bike riding, dancing and sleep overs.
"I can't believe I'm doing this, but it's important. I have gradually been losing my hair since my late teens and it has knocked my confidence immensely. I always look at women with beautiful thick hair and think 'why the hell couldn't I have hair like that?' I used to, it used to be so long and thick but most of it has fallen out now. Now I barely have any. I know that there are a lot of women out there suffering from the same issue (1 in 3 in fact) and I want you to know that there is help available for you if you want it. I have just spent the last few hours with the most amazing woman who has put this solution together for me and I feel like a new person. I can't wait to start learning styling tricks again, I'm so excited!"
“I was really pleased to find that Andrew and all the staff there are very kind and made me feel very comfortable in going through the different options. The setup is also nice and discreet; it's nice and private. They make you feel really well looked after.”
"It has done so well, and endured a lot! I want to thank you for responding to me those years ago in my time of need - really sincerely. You have changed my life, in more ways than I think you could imagine”
"As a woman experiencing hair loss I felt very much alone in my experience and really didn't want to admit to myself just how much this was impacting my everyday life. When I started avoiding social situations and worrying about giving work presentations because of the way I looked I knew that I had to do something. My consultation with Andrew at Transitions Hair opened up a whole new world for me. Andrew really understood what I was going through and was so enthusiastic to help me find the best way to get me looking and feeling great again. Transitions were genuinely interested in providing me with an affordable, personalised solution that would achieve the best, most natural look for me. I am so happy with the way my hair looks now that I can honestly say it actually looks better than before I suffered my hair loss. The transformation this has had in my confidence and self-esteem makes me wonder why I waited so long. If you've experienced hair loss and are ready to do something about it then I highly recommend a visit to Transitions Hair first."
