Claire N Seddon, a student at the University of Liverpool, also Founder of Hair Heals, has launched a unique nationwide charitable campaign. Their main objective is to raise awareness and offer emotional support to those experiencing hair loss.
Claire started the campaign after years of hosting the Liverpool Urban Hair Show which is an event dedicated to celebrating hairdressing and supporting local charities, during this time she realised that individuals without hair were being marginalised from getting involved in the event, and decided to start a project that ensured hair loss sufferers were also included. This led her to start the Hair Heals charitable campaign.
The campaign will also focus on public awareness of the effects of any form of hair loss, which includes Postpartum Hair Loss, Alopecia, Genetic Thinning, Trichotillomania, Male Pattern Baldness and hair loss caused by chemotherapy, injury or surgery.
Claire, who is currently being supported by The Women’s Organisation, will be launching the charity officially on January 20th 2017 at Siren. The launch will look to attract attendance from hair replenishment medical professionals, charity representatives, researchers, victims of hair loss and their families as well as the media and press.
Claire will be speaking about the project on BayTV on Tuesday’s 5:30pm news and also on BayTV’s programme; Shaun’s People on Wednesday at 6:30pm
Hair Heals is also the selected charitable organisation for the 3rd annual Liverpool Urban Hair, set for May 7th 2017 at Mountford Hall (University of Liverpool), profits raised from hairdressers entries will be donated in aid of Hair Heals. Hairdressers can apply for the competition by enquiring through the event website here.
