Treatment & Advice
We have a wealth of experience and information on offer as hair-loss specialists. We can advise with hair and skincare routines, as well as other products which may help you.
As an official NHS supplier, we’re also able to offer a great deal of advice regarding funding and the options you have available to you.
As a proud partner of The Little Princess Trust, we supply human hair wigs, free of charge, to young people under 25 years-old with hair loss due to cancer or other illnesses.
Wellness workshops & events
While your appearance is a vital part of helping you to be you again, we also understand that it’s not everything. That’s why we regularly host events at which other people can share their stories and take part in relaxing activities to relieve stress and worry.
See Facebook for details of any upcoming events.
Inside our salons
Finding your new hair shouldn’t be a medical experience, nor a wig shop endeavour. Buying your new hair off the shelf is not something we want. That’s why we created the lounge. Both our Sunderland lounge (based at Kitui), and our Newcastle lounge (based in the Ouseburn) offer a beautiful salon space dedicated entirely to hair-loss treatments and services. They’re the only salons of their kind in the North East and there’s not a mannequin in sight. Just gorgeous, private surroundings designed to make you feel as relaxed and as comfortable as possible. There is plenty of room for a friend or relative to come with you for extra support at our Sunderland salon, too!
