"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's learning to dance in the rain," Helen Owens, Owner of 'Her Secret' Salon learnt this secret of life quite early. By the time she was 18, Owens had already landed her first celebrity client- Izora Armstead best known for the 1982 hit, "It's Raining Men." Helen does much more than just helping women deal with hair loss; she helps her patients cope with crisis, move on with dignity and regain their confidence.

Helen makes different types of hair units that she calls, "custom-made modern filaments" for women. Making a custom hair unit takes about six to eight weeks. At the price range of $500 - $10,000 they are worth it as they last for 15 or more years. "People can swim, shampoo, make a high ponytail or braid it, part it. The hairline is breathable and lightweight to scalp," said Owens, who works with the medical community and goes through a private consultation providing personal care to each client. She has created a special hair piece for women suffering from 'trichotillomania' ( a disease where the patient has a compulsive urge to pull out one's own hair) that discourages them from pulling and helps in breaking the habit.

A warm hug from Owens, her compassionate smile and the welcoming ambience of the clinic gives moral support and an understanding listener that a patient needs foremost. "I feel overwhelmed with happiness when I see my clients smile again after getting treated successfully," says Owens who loves her work and giving back to the community. Patients and their families frequently send her cards of thanks and praise. Labelle Agency of Dallas recently named Helen a celebrity hair stylist for the west coast.

Helen owns Her Secret Salon in Tracy and Classics International salons in New York City and Los Angeles.
