My New Hair
Emma Romans of Betty Brown Wigs
joins a national network to support women with medical hair loss.
Emma has completed an intensive one day wig personalisation
course led by leading hairdresser Trevor Sorbie at the L’Oreal Professional
head quarters in London. Emma and her team not only received
intensive direction on working with and fitting wigs for clients with Trevor
Sorbie himself, she has also taken part in a communications workshop lead by cancer
nurses from The Communication Equation Ltd. who are experienced in helping
people improve their communication skills, particularly when dealing with
sensitive and difficult situations.
An invaluable part of the training, this
part of the seminar is designed to help “My New Hair” associates put even the
most vulnerable clients at ease allowing the nurses to answer questions and
share their professional knowledge and insight with the group. My New Hair is a national network of over 270
professional hairdressers, who are offering their services up and down the
country to patients who are suffering from medical hair loss. This list
includes other notable industry names including Andrew Collinge, Mark Hill,
Andrew Mulvenna, and Charles Worthington.
Trevor Sorbie aims to train at least
400 hairdressers on his programme over the next 2 years to deliver the “My New
Hair” service in salons and healthcare environments. “My
New Hair” provides the definitive training and education for
hair professionals to enable them to provide the premium wig cutting service in
the industry. This important initiative aims to contribute towards some
significant “psychological medicine” for a person experiencing medical hair
loss. A client can expect a respectful, compassionate and professional
consultation, tailored to their individual need.
