Monica Dickenson, Certified Trichologist

Expertise: Hair Loss

Education: United States Trichology Institute

Monica Dickenson has more than 30 years of experience as a dedicated technician and business owner. She is very passionate about providing the best service possible to anyone experiencing hair loss and has certifications in hair replacement and holistic trichology. She was awarded USTI Associate Trichologist of the year in 2018.

Monica graduated from Garfield High School in Woodbridge, Virginia, and after several years of working in salons, she decided she could better serve her clients by opening a mobile salon, Cosmetology Specialty Services, in 2004. Throughout her career, Monica noticed that a large number of her clients experienced different forms of hair loss (alopecia, male and female pattern, telogen, etc.) and had no place to turn to gain knowledge of their ailments and/or treatment to help them maintain or regrow their hair.

Her dedication to serving her clients compelled her to research and study hair loss and its treatments, obtain formal training and become a certified trichologist. As Monica's passion for treating hair loss grew she became an affiliate with Wigs for Kids, a non-profit organization that provides wigs and hair services for kids with cancer. The recognition of her clients and the Trichology community enforced her decision to revamp her business model and thus “Hair Saviours,” a hair loss and wellness center was founded in August 2020.
