One in three women will suffer from significant hair loss at some point in their lives and yet it’s an issue that gets ignored by the majority of salons. Lucinda Ellery suffered from hair loss as a child following the death of her father, so knows the mental and emotional impact it can have. As a result, she has made it her mission to come up with innovate solutions to help clients feel better about their hair.
Her clinics – both in London, around the UK and in NYC and LA, are world-leaders when it comes to how to camouflage thinning hair. They offer systems for all forms and all stages of hair loss – from Alopecia Areata, Androgenetic Alopecia, Female Pattern Hair Loss, Chemotherapy, Post Radio Therapy, Lupus, Telegen Effluviumand and most other chronic types of hair loss including Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia and TTM (Trichotillomania). The type of hair solution you end up having depends on the individual but examples include: their trademarked alternative to wigs; their imperceptible extensions that add volume without damaging fragile hair; and a mesh-based hair system that gets weaved onto your own hair.
Unsurprisingly, while all of the clinics are booming with clients – some as young as 8 – they’re also deeply discreet (you can’t take guests with you unless you’re a minor and you can also request privacy screens if you prefer). Stylists here are nothing short of hair magicians, working tirelessly to ensure that no one will ever know that it isn’t your own hair. If you or someone you know is struggling with hair loss of any kind, make this a port of call, it really can be life-changing.
