mynewhair Spreads The Love Abroad

Friday, 11 May 2018 14:17

In association with Sister Beauty Lounge and L'Oréal Middle East, mynewhair founder Trevor Sorbie MBE and his training team will conduct a two-day wig cutting and styling workshop for professional hairdressers on Sunday 20th May at the L’Oréal Professional Academy, Dubai.

mynewhair is a pioneering national charity founded by Trevor 12 years ago; it provides much needed advice and support to anyone who has experienced medical hair loss and access to a network of responsibly trained hairdressers. Currently there are approximately 960 hairdressers and 835 independent salons, across the UK and Ireland, members of the charity’s national network of ‘salons that care’ who provide a responsible and compassionate wig-customisation service for their clients.

During the two-day workshop in Dubai, Trevor will share his story and inspiration behind mynewhair as well as use his personal skills and insight to provide hairdressers with specialist expertise across all areas of advice, wig cutting and aftercare. “In the 12 years since we set up mynewhair, our unique charity has achieved goals beyond our expectations,” explains Trevor. “I am very proud of everything we have achieved so far in helping people who are suffering from medical hair loss. However, there is still much more to be done, and in recent years, it has been my dream to take mynewhair overseas. We are extremely grateful for the support of Sisters and L’Oreal Middle East for helping us to achieve our vision of expanding mynewhair internationally." 

Trevor goes on to say how thrilled he is to be leading the charity’s first international training seminar and workshop together with my training team, as well as having the opportunity to engage with hospitals in Dubai to discuss the importance of wig provision for those affected by alopecia and cancer. He continues: “This is a big development for the charity and it is amazing that we can now have a positive impact and support even more people living with medical hair loss.”

During the workshop Trevor Sorbie will be joined by the charity’s trustees: professional hairdresser Darren Stuart from Tribeca Hair based in the North East of England; and health professionals Joanne Atkinson, Head of Subject Nursing Midwifery and Health at Northumbria University, and Ann Fox, Executive Director of Nursing, Quality and Safety at Sunderland NHS Clinical Commissioning Group and Visiting Professor at the University of Sunderland, Department of Nursing and Health Sciences.
