Holiday Event Helps Those Suffering From Hair Loss

This time of year is all about giving. Evelyn Metellus, founder of the Hair Doctor, has been helping women who suffer from hair loss feel more beautiful by creating customized wigs.

On Sunday, Dec. 26, Metellus hosted a special holiday event, and all attendees were encouraged to donate their gently used hair wigs. One woman cut off more than 12 inches of her own hair for donation.

“Creating these special wigs for my clients is my passion. I love to help bring back their self-confidence,” Metellus said. “These survivors are brave and strong, and they encourage me to keep doing what I love.”

Metellus normally hosts a gala once a year to help collect donations to create wigs. Since the events were postponed this year due to COVID-19, she asked her local community to help continue her tradition by donating their gently used wigs.

The Hair Doctor is located in the Mall at Wellington Green at 10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd, Suite 270, in Wellington. For more information, visit
