Hair Loss - Finding the right wig style 26 June 2007
Trevor Sorbie's new service for women who've lost their hair.

Trevor Sorbie, the internationally renowned celebrity hairstylist, has recently set up a pioneering scheme called ‘My New Hair’ to help women who’ve lost their hair through the effects of chemotherapy or alopecia. Finding a natural looking wig can be extremely difficult and cutting a wig is a specialist skill which very few hairdressers possess. Mary, recently lost her hair during treatment for breast cancer. She bought a £300 wig which was ruined by her hairdresser and has found it impossible to find one she is happy with. Trevor Sorbie is offering his services free of charge to cut the wigs of women like Mary - and to date has helped over 400 women. Felicity Finch went to meet Mary and Trevor at his London salon.
