Hair Talk with JoJo
The Hair Care Expert
Q. JoJo I was told that Terry’s Place does waxing. I have a mustache and chin hair. My brother said that if i wax or shave it, the hair will grow back thicker is that true?
A. No that’s not true. Shaving your facial hair dose not make them grow back thicker. Terry”s Place has been Detroit’s #1 Eyebrow arching boutique since 1971, specializing in eyebrow arching and facial hair waxing. Contrary to rumor, removing your facial hair does not make it grow back thicker. It’s the complete opposite actually. If you continue to get waxing done on an area and do nothing else, you will find that the hair grows back finer and lighter.
Q. JoJo I’m a red head, and I used to use this color by Dudley’s called Matador Red. Do they still make it? If so, where can I find it? i’m having a hard time finding any Dudley Products, and they worked great on my hair?
A. Hey Red Head yes Dudley’s is still in business and going strong. Terry’s Place is still your Dudley’s Product connection. That Matador Red was and still is Dudley’s hottest color and Red is perfect for this upcoming holiday season, so come on in and grab some. Like they say, beware of the lady in red…
Q. JoJo I’m a older lady with grey hair. I’m looking for a mix grey wig. Every place my kids take me has every color but grey. Does Terry Place have grey wigs and do they make grey human hair wigs?
A. Yes ma’am. Terry’s Place has the largest selection of grey wigs in the city, and our newly expanded human hair collection also includes grey and mixed grey girlfriends - that’s what we call wigs around here. Come on down to Terry’s Place, and let us find you a new girlfriend. While you’re here, we’ll line up your neck and freshen up your eyebrows and get you ready for the holidays…...
