Getting the right cut, color and look for Hollywood starlets is what celebrity stylist Jose Eber does, but on Monday, he was on a much more personal mission to help cancer patients at the City of Hope Medical Center.
“We’re here to give them confidence. You can look great even during those difficult times,” Eber said.
Laura Gallardo of West Covina discovered her cancer during her first mammogram at age 52. She’s on her third round of chemo.
“You lose your hair, your skin dries out a lot,” she said.
So to battle the physical changes of cancer and treatment, Gallardo and dozens of other patients are undergoing a different kind of therapy. Eber and his professional salon team and stylists start with the hair. Actress Jaclyn Smith donated the wigs from her collection.
“A picture with a frame looks better right? It’s the same thing about a person. The hair frames the whole person,” Eber said.
Just because you’re a brunette doesn’t mean you have to stay that way. The day is about having fun and making new choices because beauty experts say, living through cancer can be a beautiful transformation.
“You want to see the person. Once you put the wig on, you want to see the smile,” Eber said.
The Glamour Project, a group dedicated to improving the lives of women going through hardship, is on hand to get the ladies ready for their close-up.
“There’s no question that if you feel better about yourself, you’ve got a little more energy and feel better, that’s for sure,” said Dr. Joanne Mortimer of City of Hope Medical Center.
Alpine Terabramyan, 8, is undergoing treatment for lymphoma. She’s overwhelmed by all the kindness and compassion. She wanted a Mohawk but ended up with a softer look.
Battling cancer can feel like long, dark journey, but Gallardo sees light at the end of the tunnel.
The prognosis for both Gallardo and Terabramyan looks very bright. They have months of chemotherapy ahead of them, but with their makeovers, both say they won’t have to worry so much about how they look, and they have renewed confidence.
When my children were young, my husband and I used to throw a huge barbecue for our family and friends every Fourth of July. I was never the “grill master” (as my husband was so fondly named), so I spent my time making an assortment of salads and desserts while he tended the fire.
I am blessed to have adult children who have “taken the reigns” since my husband’s passing. Now my Fourth of July celebrations are spent at THEIR homes with THEM cooking. So, my biggest task is making a vat of potato salad, playing with my grandchildren and choosing what to wear (this year it’s my trusty Angel wig, my favorite pedal-pushers and the blouse with striped scarf from Paula Young).
So, how will YOU celebrate your independent style this independence day? A new wig? A pretty dress? Some cute shoes?
Whatever you choose, I’m sure you’ll look wonderful!

Did you know that humidity and poor air quality can affect your wig the same way it affects your hair?
To avoid frizzy, weighed down, unkempt looking hair, a good rule of thumb is to wash your wig after six to eight uses in the summertime. Also, if you are athletic, your wig will require even more washing.

Last weekend, my best friend held a baby shower for her daughter at her home. For the event, I wore my beloved Angel Wig by Paula Young. Then I paired my favorite pair of black slacks with the Paula Young Blouse with Necklace in Pink Sorbet. The compliments I received had me smiling just as much as the thought of that precious new baby did!
It’s important to remember that great style doesn’t end with your hair! Think head-to-toe style with Paula Young. Check out our sensational Apparel & Accessories collection – chock full of flattering designs, rich colors and details.
In the past, women would call their colorist immediately upon finding their first gray hair. The initial reaction was to hide that gray from the world. You see, while men who had gray hair were considered “sexy” and “distinguished,” women were just considered, well (for lack of a better word), “old.”
Thankfully, times have changed! The latest trend for hair is gray. Women are embracing their gorgeous gray hair and seeing the true beauty in those sultry silver shimmers and that sophisticated style.
Join the growing trend of gray-haired women like my sister Jacqui did! She has been wearing the Brussels wig in rich salt-and-pepper shade for the past few years and everyone adores the way she in looks in it. (P.S. I’m already a gray hair girl… been wearing the Angel Wig in Silvery Moon forever!)

Oh, and even movie stars are putting a new spin on the phrase “silver screen.” Take Meryl Streep’s character, Miranda Priestly (shown left), in the movie The Devil Wears Prada. Her captivating style and gorgeous silver locks lit up the screen and wowed audiences across the globe.
I’m going a little outside the usual blog topic today. I had something happen to me recently that I just needed to share with you – my blog friends!
My children always make sure that my Mother’s Day is filled with happy memories. So, as I slipped on my Angel wig, applied my Age Spot Serum and Forehead Refiner, and added the finishing touches to my makeup, I wondered what type of events my children had planned for the day.
My three daughters (Trisha, Kimberly and Lori), my son (John) and one of my granddaughters (Lily), ended up taking me to dinner at my favorite restaurant. It was my husband’s favorite restaurant as well, and since his passing last May it’s become “our place.”
As we were all sitting enjoying some drinks, some bruschetta and some wonderful conversation we were stunned to hear an indescribably horrific sound followed by screams.
My children (all adults now) immediately bolted from the booth to see what happened – my daughter Kim is certified in First Aid and my other two daughters are avid photographers. I anxiously sipped my wine and made small-talk to help ease my 10-year-old granddaughter’s fear.
Upon arriving back to the table, the girls informed me that a car had actually driven through the front wall of the building, injuring four people in its path. Just minutes before, it was where I had been sitting with one of my daughters.
After fighting breast cancer for years, I thought I had encountered everything, but boy was I wrong!
Was it a stroke of luck or my husband – my guardian angel – who saved us? I’m leaning toward the latter.
I hope and pray that all of the victims are healing well and hope that next year’s Mother’s Day is a bit less exciting.
It was a hairstyle made famous on and off the silver screen: Mia Farrow’s pixie cut, introduced in the 1968 horror film Rosemary’s Baby. “It’s Vidal Sassoon!” Farrow proclaims during a light moment in the movie. “It’s very in.”
Sassoon — who died Wednesday at the age of 84 — was paid $5,000 by Rosemary’s Baby director Roman Polanski to give Farrow the new do, according to The New York Times. And on Wednesday, in the wake of his death, fashion’s finest remembered Sassoon for such revolutionary cuts and styles.
