“I spent years attempting to mask thinning hair on the top of my head. When I started to go grey it became more obvious, so I was colouring the roots every few weeks. I was also spending a lot of time styling it trying to make it look good. But the worst was the insecurity I felt knowing that I didn’t look my best. I finally turned to the Prosthesis Centre looking for advice.
The staff there were sensitive, caring and knowledgeable. In just a few minutes they fitted me with a partial wig that sits just on the top of my head. The style and colour are perfect. Even my family couldn’t tell what was different… Highly recommend these experts.”
