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.

Our salon, JH Hair Care, has the latest in wig manufacturing and styles. We have consulted with all the private health insurers so that their members will be covered. We are also HSE approved.

Some of our key features include:

• Private fitting and consultation rooms
• Private Insurance & HSE Approved
• A caring and comfortable atmosphere
• Confidentiality assured
• Personalised & individual wigs
• A no-obligation consultation
• Aftercare service from hair loss through to hair re-growth
• Wig maintenance available

To book your wig consultation, please phone our reception on 01 406 5522.



"I found Jim by referral and Im so glad and lucky and blessed I did. Im not the usual customer at a salon as currently I am a bald as Kojak. I am a cancer patient and Jim specializes in wigs for patients as well as having 2 kick ass hair salons with full trendy and main stream staff. Amazing attention at both Ranelagh and Rathgar salons and amazing coffee also. Im a coffee nut and when Im handed coffee the quality of an Italian cafe well, I just about melt. All in all Ive had 2 visits now and many more will follow. Jim is an artist with an eye to what suits you so you can get honest advice also. If you like me and need the extra service or have a friend who does, please refer them to him. I had a bad experience at another salon and he sorted me out and restored my confidence."
