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. 
At Betty Brown Wigs we believe it is ever important to raise standards and provide an excellent local and national service. Working together with My New Hair to raise awareness and support  within the wider community. We also run a free support group where everyone is welcome, this was developed with the help of Michelle Chapman from the Alopecia awareness Charity, and has been group led by peoples needs and interests.  There is also a dedicate website www.mynewhair.org offering tips for clients selecting, and caring for wigs.
