Firstly, it is worth remembering that hairdressers come into contact with alopecia on a very regular basis. They are often the first person to recognise hair loss. Most hairdressers will treat their clients sensitively regarding their hair loss.

MyNewHair is a charity founded by and inspired by Trevor Sorbie MBE. They provide public advice and support a national network of independent salons and professionals who provide a wig styling service for people suffering from cancer and medical hair loss. Each professional who signs up to MyNewHair’s network pledges their commitment to responsible training and providing a caring and sensitive service for their clients. Many MyNewHair stylists are trained to cut and style wigs and they have a 'salon finder' on their website. You can find more information here.
