My New Hair

mynewhair is the pioneering new charity founded by and inspired by Trevor Sorbie MBE.
We 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.
Importantly, each of these professionals have approached us personally. They pledge their commitment to responsible training and provide a caring and sensitive service for their clients.
We have produced a booklet of advice and information on what happens when you lose your hair, choosing a wig, having your wig styled to suit you and aftercare/ hair re-growth in conjunction with the Department of Health and Institute of Trichologists. We call it our Patient Information Resource - click here to download it now.
We provide training seminars for hair professionals, following completion of which these professionals become part of our salon network - Salons that Care. We have trained hundreds of hair professionals around the country to provide a wig cutting and advice service to those suffering from medical hair loss. You can access our database of salons here.
