Hair and Beauty
Our newly refurbished hair and beauty facility is an important Hospice service, offered to both inpatient and Day Hospice patients, and one which is extremely appreciated.
Our stylist offers the following services:
- wig cleaning and styling
- cut and blow
- shampoo and set
- perming and colouring by appointment
- barbering for gents
Often patients are unable to access their normal hairdresser because of increasing disability and fatigue. Both men and women benefit from being able to have their hair washed and styled when they attend Day Hospice.
Hair loss is a very sensitive and distressing side effect for many patients undergoing treatment and our stylist will close the salon door and can shave off hair in privacy and also give a head massage to help promote new hair follicle growth when the time is right.
Our hair stylist has been trained at the Christie to clean and style wigs and teach patients how to use scarves and head coverings when they lose their hair through chemotherapy. We have a wide range of wigs and scarves available for loan and purchase.
We also have a team of volunteer beauty therapists and manicurists.
