We are SO excited to reveal some new summer chemo headwear styles which, we hope you agree, look anything than the traditional (and often limited) options available.

It's what Nicky, our London-trained bespoke milliner and founder, is passionate about offering women and why we're thrilled to say that word of Suburban Turban style is spreading - internationally, now, too (more on Nicky's mission, along with some of her top tips for finding headwear that expresses your own style, here).

They are, of course, also ideal stylish headwear for apolecia or for those experiencing hair loss for any reason - we've also been asked if people can order our hats who are not undergoing hair loss, but just love the looks! To which the answer is, of course, YES! Among our hot new Spring/Summer styles to inspire you, so far, are this classic, super-chic Chocolate Trilby (pictured top). We love this because it's cool (in EVERY sense!), and the pinstripes really give it a stylish edge. This style needs to be worn over a tied chemo head scarf as shown, to ensure complete coverage at the nape of the neck (it's pictured here with one of our popular silk square chemo headband scarves). Another sunshine-ready style for hair loss, Miss Lucy in silky soft woven 'straw' flatters all face shapes.

Again, it's teamed here with one of our silk tying square headband scarves for total coverage at the neck (here in the lovely Rose Pink). This style is cool, lightweight and great for disguising chemo hair loss during the summer months. Or for something more traditionally 'summer', how about our new Wallace brimmed sunhat? woman wearing wide brimmed blue summer hat

Stylish enough to take you to any 'main' summer event, or for simply shopping in town or pottering at home - in style, of course! Here, our model Ray is wearing it over one of our pure silk headband scarves (see our full range of headbands and colours here!).  And now that the sun is starting to put its hat on (sorry, we couldn't resist!) - don't forget to protect you skin with a naturally-based sun screen (we have handpicked our selection for their suitability for  more sensitive skin during or post-treatment). Watch this space for lots more fabulous summer styles for hair loss to come!
