Over the years, I have found myself and my hairdressing team shaving the heads of many of our clients – women just diagnosed with cancer who wanted to pre-empt their hair falling-out by shaving it off. Obviously, this is a very difficult and traumatic time for people undergoing treatment and the very least they should expect is a place where they feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease.
As a hairdresser, I know how important our hair is to all of us but especially to women: it’s an integral part of a woman’s very femininity. What was worse, I could find very few places for my clients to go to get fitted for a wig and where they would be treated with the kindness and respect that they deserve. As someone who used to volunteer for many years, doing the hair of people who were terminally ill with cancer, I found this situation so devastating.
We thought that if we built a customised hair and wig salon, where people would be treated with dignity and respect in a relaxing atmosphere, we could help people everywhere dealing with cancer, alopecia and medical hair loss. We want you to feel as if you are among friends and to feel fully comfortable as you get fitted, in total privacy, for a beautiful wig in a custom-built salon. Therefore, we created and developed JH Hair Care on Highfield Road, Rathgar, Dublin 6.
JH Hair Care specialises in total haircare, from having L’Oreal trained professional stylists for the boutique hair salon in front of house offering colour, cuts and blow dry’s through to the specialist-trained wig consultants in the private consultation rooms; who advise on products and services specifically for hair loss and hair thinning. Our philosophy is “Your Hair, Your Frame”; JH Hair Care looks after and cares for your hair from the start of your hair loss – right through to regrowth and styling.
