Showing our support at the Alopecia UK Big Weekend

Pink Hair Solutions were proud to show their support recently at the Alopecia Big Weekend.  Linda Heeley, Steve Heeley, Kelly Hawkley and Levi Harrison from the Pink team attended the event at the Studio in Lever Street, Manchester.

We arrived at the venue nice and early to set up our large range of stock which included hairpieces, products and hats. 

The event kicked off with a talk from Jen Chambers, who is responsible for the day-to-day operation and development of the charity. Jen is supported by Alopecia UK's Communications Manager, Amy Johnson and a team of core volunteers, all of whom help deliver the services Alopecia UK provides. 

We heard various speakers talk about the latest research and treatments on Alopecia and throughout the day there were a number of live workshops and talks, from eyebrow tattooing to how to make a shape for a custom made unit – which were happy to demonstrate. 

Lunch was a great opportunity to sit down with some of the ladies to share knowledge and experiences and to get more of an understanding of the effects alopecia has on the everyday lives of those affected.

We ended the day on a high with a raffle, which featured great prizes donated by the exhibitors taking part in the workshops and stalls.  Overall the day was a huge success and we were privileged to share this experience with over 200 attendees from all over the UK.

If you would like to talk to us about Alopecia and the treatments and products we offer please speak to the Pink Hair Solutions team today on 0121 350 3826.
