If you are experiencing thinning hair, a conventional wig may be the simplest and least expensive choice. You may be surprised by how comfortable, secure, attractive, and easy they can be.
Finding a wig that fits your lifestyle and price range will be no problem with our experts.
This may be the best solution if you have advanced thinning. However, a topper, or partial wig, that sits on the crown of your head and seamlessly blends into your natural hair is often the solution that many women with thinning hair need. Read more about toppers here.

Preparing for the effects of chemotherapy can seem scary. But the best way to address chemo-related hair loss is by planning ahead.
Our caring experts will help you find the right wig to meet your needs and prepare you for all the side effects of losing your hair. You’ll want to get your wig well in advance of losing your hair so that you are prepared when the time comes.
Finding a wig that can make you feel beautiful in the midst of healing is important, and finding one that feels comfortable is crucial.

We suggest booking an appointment in one of our private fitting rooms to discuss your options and bring a partner or close friend for moral support.

Sondra, a Bravadas client and friend who has been on her alopecia hair journey for years
We have many natural looking wigs for alopecia that will look so perfect, that even close friends won’t know you wear wigs!
If you have alopecia, your stage of hair loss will determine what is best for you. Book a consultation with one of our caring experts and request a private fitting room if you wish. Explain what you need to the stylist and we’ll find you the perfect solution for you.
If you have hair loss that is progressing, we offer high quality, top of the line human hair wigs. These wigs look and feel the most natural and last the longest with proper care.
These can be cut, dyed, and styled just like regular hair. Investing in a high-quality wig even before significant hair loss may be the best option. This will last you through stages of hair loss and remain beautiful and comfortable.
A client with Alopecia Totalis
If your alopecia is not progressive, finding a hairpiece to cover the patches might be enough.
We carry top of the line brands and the highest quality fibers with remy and virgin hair. This means the hair will be the healthiest, take dye the best, and last the longest.
Hand-tied wigs are also a great investment if you are a daily wig wearer. This means that all of the hairs have been hand-tied to the wig cap. This allows for free movement in all directions, just like natural hair. We have all textures and colors available and our expert stylists can color it to be exactly what you want, cut it to frame your face shape, and fit it to be extremely comfortable.
Wigs can look completely natural and make you feel like you!
Another great option for clients with alopecia is custom wigs. At Bravadas, we can walk you through all the options to build the perfect wig made just for you. From cap construction/sizing and style to color, texture, and length, you’ll be in charge of everything. Get hair like no one else! Your wig will come in about 8-10 weeks later and our stylists will make sure everything is right, teach you how to securely put it on and take it off, clean and care and style it, and will make any adjustments to the color and cut needed for that extra touch of perfection.
A wig can cover the areas where you pull and protect your scalp
If you’ve experienced periods of hair pulling, your scalp is likely tender and you have patches of thinned or no hair. If the patches are large and cover a lot of your scalp, a full wig to provide coverage is a great option. This way when the wind blows, your scalp is completely covered!
Our expert stylists are understanding and non-judgmental. We’ll find the best solution for you so that you’ll feel and confident and beautiful. You can request a private fitting room for your consultation if you’d like.
Because your scalp is likely to be tender, the cap of the wig is the most important part. This will determine the comfort level and length of wearability. Different cap styles will feel different on your head. It’s crucial and try on the different styles to feel how they fit.
Your best options will probably stray from the traditional cap styles and venture more toward designs with hand tied sections and more comfortable french top wigs.
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!””
