Brenda Vickers, 78, has decided to take action to address her hair loss and loss of self-confidence. So she visited the Novo Cabelo hair replacement company to get her mojo back.
In a video shared on TikTok, Novo Cabelo owner Rob Wood can be seen tying up a £ 350 ‘hair system’ made from real hair.
When Brenda, blindfolded, sees the job done, she can’t help but cry and ask, “Do I have all this hair?” “
More than 500,000 people watched the footage, with many also finding it touching and saying that her new look made her 20 years younger.
Brenda, who has celiac disease, said the transformation will boost her confidence and allow her to visit stores more often.
The retiree, from Walkergate, Newcastle upon Tyne, said: “It’s nice not having to be embarrassed when I go out. I no longer have to feel embarrassed and think “I don’t want to look at myself”.
“It changed everything. I go out more now because I can feel confident and it’s an amazing feeling. Everyone I have spoken to has been so complimentary and kind.
“My head should be huge,” she told the Daily Star.
“People say I’m 20 years younger, but I still have the brain of a 78-year-old man. My body is old but my hair is young. I haven’t seen myself looking like this for so long. ”
Brenda’s husband Brian, 81, was also stunned by the end result of the hair system.
“It’s like being married to someone 20 years younger. It’s a good job, I still have a lot of hair too.
« [The transformation] is beautiful, so I’m so happy for her. It is on the spot. You couldn’t ask for anything better.
“I was really shocked when I first saw her. I found her very attractive. She doesn’t look bad, you know? “
The former administrative worker believes her hair loss is due to the celiac immune system disorder, which she was diagnosed with in 2017, but says she has been suffering for 20 years.
To achieve the new look, a stretchy “poly skin” membrane was attached to its head with double-sided tape specially designed for the skin.
It has been fitted with existing hair and will last approximately six months.
