Here at Pink Hair Solutions, the team are very excited to be heading to the forthcoming Alopecia UK Big Weekend! We have been invited to exhibit at this exciting event in Manchester on Saturday 12th September 2015. This will be Alopecia UK’s second large event, and it is hoped that the weekend will be even more successful than the first.
The event will be held on 12th and 13th September, and visitors will need to purchase tickets for their chosen day(s). Tickets can be purchased by clicking here eventbrite.co.uk. It will be held at The Studio, 51 Lever Street, Manchester, M1 1FN.
The Saturday event is aimed at both adults as well as teenagers, to share information surrounding alopecia. The line-up for the day involves talks by specialists around topics such as hair thickening cosmetics, scarring alopecia and scalp concealers. It’s not only the physical side effects of alopecia which will be talked about, but there will also be workshops running on how to develop self-compassion and build emotional resilience when living with alopecia.
In between listening to speakers and attending workshops, visitors are welcome to speak to a number of exhibitors (including Pink Hair Solutions), to discuss wigs and alternative hair and headwear solutions.
There will also be a social event on the Saturday evening (though please note that this is for over 18s only), plus a Coronation Street tour on Sunday – perfect for die-hard Corrie fans! Guests will be pleased to hear that there will also be plenty to eat and drink too. Lunch, mid-morning and afternoon snacks, and unlimited tea and coffee will be included within the ticket price.
It is hoped that by sharing information around alopecia, sufferers and their family and friends will learn useful tools and techniques to help them to live with their condition. It will also reassure them that they are not alone, and that there are many other people in the same position as them.
