September is National Alopecia Awareness Month. According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, the condition affects 6.8 million people in the United States. Evelyn Metellus, founder of the Hair Doctor, has been helping women who suffer from this autoimmune hair loss disease feel more beautiful by creating customized wigs.
“When I see women come to me feeling broken because they are losing their hair to diseases like alopecia and cancer, I feel extra motivated to put that smile back on their faces by creating the gift of hair. This is my passion. I love to help bring back their self-confidence,” Metellus said, who operates her business out of the Mall at Wellington Green. “My women are brave and strong, and they encourage me to keep doing what I love.”
Metellus uses affordable and luxurious human hair to create her masterpiece wigs.
Metellus is also passionate about giving back to the community when she can. She holds fundraisers to raise money to create wigs for cancer patients. The pandemic has put a damper on that this year, but she still donates a wig to a cancer patient once a month.
Combining experience, artistry and technique, Metellus has cultivated an illustrious career that spans more than 20 years. In the past two decades, she has gained the reputation of creating the very best extensions South Florida has to offer. Metellus provides a service experience that encapsulates her desire for helping others look and feel their best. Learn more at www.thehairdoctor.info.
