Celebrity hairdresser Trevor Sorbie was in Saltaire yesterday celebrating the new partnership between his project which helps people suffering medical hair loss and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Mr Sorbie founded My New Hair in 2009 which is a network of hair professionals who provide advice and wig cutting services to people who have lost their hair after cancer, as well as training for hairdressers who wish to offer the service in their salons.

“My New Hair isn’t just about hair, it is psychological medicine for women suffering from hair loss through illness and for many of the women I have seen it’s the missing link in their treatment,” said Mr Sorbie, who received an MBE in 2004.

The not-for-profit service has already helped hundreds of women and, by working with Macmillan, it is hoped that more people will benefit.
