Can Humor Cure Your Hair Woes?


Mark Edwards is a dapper man. Perfectly turned out in a custom made suit and matching bow tie, he’s the ultimate professional and go to person when it comes to all things hair. Hair has become the metaphor for his life. In the two decades thats he’s been working as a hairstylist in Laguna Beach, California, he has learned a thing or two about the mind body connection and hair. He shared some of his insights with us here at, showing us that if we just looked at our hair from a holistic, whole body standpoint we would all profit from it the way he has.

One thing our readers have noticed is that Mark has a terrific sense of humor. Laughter seems to be his guiding light. In his words:

“What essential oils do for hair follicles, humor does for the human spirit.Personally, humor has saved me from heartbreak. Although superficially I live a very glamorous life I have many personal challenges. Humor has served me well in overcoming these stressful situations.

“Hair growth and hair loss are very much related to stress. I see that with a lot of my customers who come in with thinning hair.  I talk to them about what’s going on in their lives and I see a correlation. I’m not a scientist I’m just very good at listening to my customers.

“I’ve seen how my humorous take on life has helped my customers. I cannot tell you for certain regarding hair growth or follicle restoration but I can guarantee that my customers radiate differently when they walk out of here. To be radiant is very attractive. When you’re depressed or you feel ugly you suck the energy out of the room. When you feel great and radiate beauty you become the life of the party.”

There you have it folks. Incorporating a bit of humor into your daily routine may help your hair grow in fuller, But it will certainly bring more happiness and light to those around you than even the most perfect head of hair.
