Cool stress-free summer headwear – bring it on!

It certainly feels as if summer has arrived and continued talk of the water shortage should make us all feel very continental! The studio is humming at the moment (not just with the sound of machines), but because our summer scarves and fabrics have arrived. Here’s what we’ve been up to! We’ve been busy developing some new styles and updating some firm favourites with new colours. The first of the updates is Bea, now available in a couple of new shades – Violet Cream shown below, and Fuchsia Red. If this pull-on jersey style has proven useful for you, these colours will take you through the summer in style. Alma, a ‘re-think’ on the Kimmy style has also arrived – thanks to a suggestion by one of our lovely clients. Something soft and pretty with a little more decorative detailing was the request of the day. It comes in 2 colours and we hope you’ll consider this to be just right! There is updated photography for the Pella Floral sleep hat, so that you can now see the hat style and fabric pattern from all angles. 

Caps are such a popular casual style to wear, and perhaps a little unusual when they are cut and styled for hair loss, (cut low with no cut outs, and a soft fabric peak). We have extended the Carrie range with a new Soft Blue colour for summer (see main pic). We’ve added some pretty summer brimmed hats to the range this year - Mila and Florrie will keep you cool and shaded this summer. If you are going through treatment it is always a good idea to keep shaded from the sun, so a brimmed hat can be a really useful item – particularly if like Mila it can be folded up into a handbag! These styles are lightweight and could easily be worn with a colourful fine cotton or silk bandana underneath.  You may also be interested to discover Green People's no-fragrance sun lotion SPF25 - Natural Health & Beauty magazine readers voted Green People Sun Lotions the Best! "If you’re going to trust a range to protect your skin from the sun then this is the one." Rave reviews which we'd have to agree with, and now available as part of our skincare section. There is a new contemporary turban now in the range Renee. The trim fabric contains some wonderful colours - deep cerise pink and midnight blue to give a stylish update to this classic style.
The new long turban tying cotton scarf colours have also arrived, so we hope you’ll be spoiled for choice when ‘wafting’ through the garden or supermarket, depending on how the day is going! We've also added some new prints to the long tying scarf range Cinnamon Clove is one. Don’t forget if you do wear a wig the majority of the time and you are concerned about managing the warmer weather there is our excellent fringe wig alternative – just a small amount of hair showing can make such a difference to a hat (see main pic above.) The real hair is sewn into a narrow band of elastic which can then popper into your headwear – quick to assemble and super cool when worn with the right headwear. One final reminder – if you are managing a medical hair loss condition many of our items can be supplied VAT free to you (UK). If you would like more information about this please contact us via email or give us a call in the studio we’ll be happy to help. Roll on summer….
