A Bravadas client bravely fighting cancer on her wedding day.
At Bravadas, we daily assist women who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment. We understand that this is a difficult time, and we do everything we can to help, including cutting your hair when the time is right. Because we know this is difficult for you, we will not charge you for this service.
You can schedule an appointment to reserve a time. When you come in, a caring stylist will take care of your hair in a private room and get your wig fitted before you walk out the door.
The name Bravadas is derived from “Bravado” which means “to show off with a pretense of bravery.” We use the feminine plural conjugation so our interpretation is “brave women connected.” There’s a spirit of support and camaraderie that fills Bravadas. Our clients are more than customers; they are family.
“My stylist is Mequeda and she never fails me! She have styled 4 of my wigs and each one is better than the first. If you need a wig styling please don’t hesitate to visit her at the Fairfax shop. You will love her attention to detail that she gives. She won’t stop until you look your best.”
“I was diagnosed with stage 3 Fallopian tube cancer in May 2015. I’m currently doing my 3rd 6-months of Chemo. This is the second time for me to go through hair loss from chemo. In addition, I have gone through two 5-week radiation treatments. I bought this Eva Gabor wig during my first chem, 4 years ago. It perfectly matches my original hair color and style. I am coming into the Fairfax VA Bravadas to find a second wig to get me through chemo and hair loss again. It’s a constant battle to maintain my identity in the battle against cancer. But when I look in the mirror, I still see ME….not a cancer “victim.” More importantly to me…so do my children, grandchildren, friends and loved ones! Many thanks!”
“Thank you for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to show other woman, that it is possible to look good and feel confident again, because of the products and styles you provide. It’s very sad and embarrassing to lose your hair because that is part of your identity. Keep giving your customers their pride and spirits back!””
