TAMPA, FL -When Bobbi Russell talks about her life’s passion, there’s no doubt her love runs deep.
Make no mistake, the goals she sets any day are not with her in mind.
She knows what she wants and doesn’t hesitate to go after it. Of course, she says she is working for a higher purpose, a loftier achievement that ain’t about her personal best. She has boundless, contagious energy, fueled by her laser focus. That’s interesting. Nononsense, She’s seriousbut warm -approachable. Whenever providing fullness in hairstyles that need an extra boost, she also works with extensions. Usually, actually, she counts national pageant contestants, including a former Miss America, as clients and friends. Sounds familiardoes it not? Bobbi works with all kinds of clientele, including women who have thinning hair and need the proper cut to camouflage tiny strands. So, what makes her heart especially tender is that she sees women at their most vulnerable times.
There’re two desks at her place of business, both of them ‘chock full’ of literature and continuing education.
It’s very emotional, it’s very heartbreaking, she admitted.
Whenever working with disorders of the scalp and hair, bobbi is a certified clinical trichologist. While pouring over the materials, always prepping for the next appointment and procedure, she spends time at every one. Bobbi is a voracious reader whenit gets to her craft. We go through about 10 tissues boxes regularly. We take this very seriously. She is part teacher, part stylist, and on many occasions, part counselor. Nonetheless, I wanted this to be a place where women did not feel judged. Remember, no men are allowed beyond this point. That said, we seek for people to feel comfortable, she said. She describes the location as nurturing and safe for women who are going through painful embarrassment. She knew something had to be done. Although, whenever creating an all female treatment center in Tampa called Hair Therapy for Women, she decided to create a sanctuary of sorts. Then the location is so protective of its patients and clientele that a sign is posted on the door leading into the treatment area.
That’s a fact, it’s a place they can be themselves, she says.
Her career is multifaceted and multipurpose.
She began seeing the effects of hair loss and the crippling emotions associated with it, as a stylist years ago. They are all roles she cherishes. Quite a few don’t seek for to leave the house. Basically, whenever experiencing intense depression, bobbi tells us that thousands of women she’s worked with on the dramatic experience of hair loss often isolate themselves. She convinces them to, and tells us And so it’s amidst the most rewarding experiences to not merely emotions in a book for Bobbi, not something she learned in amid the many courses, classes, and seminars across the country. Thus, it starts on the p of their head.
