    About Nicola Wood: Empowering Your Journey Through Hair Loss

    A local hair stylist and salon owner with decades of experience, Nicola Wood embarked on a transformative journey after her breast cancer diagnosis at 36. This, coupled with her own experience of hair loss from medication, ignited her passion to support men and women also facing hair loss.

    This led her to become a qualified trichologist and establish The Wonderful Wig Company, a sanctuary for those navigating the complexities of hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, and other conditions. Her remarkable contributions have earned her the honour of being a baton bearer in the Commonwealth Games, symbolising hope and solidarity within the hair loss community.

Her dedication to changing lives extends beyond her salon work, through hospital and hospice visits, and her educational outreach, embodying her belief that no one should navigate hair loss alone.

    “I visited Nicola after commencing chemotherapy but before I had actually lost my hair. On meeting Nicola, any reservations I had about having to choose a suitable wig were soon forgotten. Nicola was so friendly and empathetic whilst remaining professional. I felt completely at ease and trusted her advice. Having chosen a couple of alternative styles I returned to see Nicola the following week.

    “The actual wig I chose was in fact what we originally thought was the best choice but it was good to try alternatives! I was so pleased with the wig and felt confident wearing it that I kept it on and made a trip to the shops! My hair actually began to shed two days later and within four days I had it all removed so I got the wig just in time!

    “Finally, if anyone needs to have a consultation regarding wigs don’t be in the least bit hesitant in making an appointment with Nicola. I can not recommend her highly enough.”
