Peggy Knight provides solutions for hair loss and self esteem

SAUSALITO, Calif., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- When Peggy Knight, of Peggy Knight Solutions, learned that a young woman was afraid to go to school because she had lost her hair and kids were teasing her, she took action. Peggy donated two of her custom-made hair pieces and invited her and her mother to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation's Annual Conference in Louisville, KY -- and raised the money to pay for it.

Brittany began losing her hair after her father's sudden illness. When students started teasing her, Brittany became depressed and thought of dropping out of high school. Now, she's a star in her school, thanks to "The Tyra Banks Show," where she met Knight. "I'm happy again!" says Brittany, because she feels confident in her custom fit hair pieces from Peggy Knight.

"I knew just how she felt," said Knight. "I lost my hair in high school and my company is the result of my need to create a place where people, especially women, could find fabulous hair solutions."

"Now the kids at school compliment me on my hair," says Brittany, a 17-year-old high-school senior. "I'm also excited about going to Kentucky, because it will be great to meet people like me. I hope to make some new friends there."

Brittany's mother, Cathy, is very happy too. "This has made a big difference in her life. She's happy at school again and I know that she'll meet other kids with Alopecia and also possibly find some solidarity and help."

Knight and Brittany hope that their appearance on "Tyra" will help increase awareness of Alopecia Areata and hair loss issues.
