We have always been full of admiration for the work of the fantastic Look Good, Feel Better charity which works with beauty professionals to help women and teenagers to feel their confident best - and, most importantly, like themselves - during treatment for cancer. The Look Good Feel Better Confidence Kit is key to their extraordinary work.

What is the Look Good Feel Better Confidence Kit?

Look Good Feel Better produce this pioneering, practical and inspiring 48-page advice booklet and accompanying DVD (this is offered in addition to free workshops with one-to-one consultations and a lot more - all info at the Look Good Feel Better website). The Confidence Kit itself includes invaluable, expert advice on skincare, make-up, wig selection and cutting, scarf tying, headwear, nail care and more.

Suburban Turban and the latest Look Good Feel Better Confidence Kit

Suburban Turban is absolutely thrilled to have been giving the opportunity to be part of this fantastic service by supplying some of our headwear for hair loss in a photo shoot for the latest Look Good Feel Better Confidence Kit. Pictured above, at the top of this post, are Maria (far left) and Alix (far right), with Suburban Turban founder Nicky (centre) on the day of the photo shoot. 'They were two lovely ladies that were great sports on the day,' says Nicky. ' We gave the scarf to Maria and she was so thrilled with it - she wouldn't take it off!'. 'It was a really enjoyable day and just fabulous to see the transformation in the ladies,' continues Nicky. 'Maria is a confident hat wearer who had never tried a wig and then looked stunning when she found a fabulous one on the day which made her look super glamorous! The wigs were styled and personalised on the day by celebrity hairdresser Charles Worthington. 'Alix, meanwhile, discovered our fringe wig and suddenly a world of hats opened up for her which she might not have considered before. It was fascinating to listen to and be a part of. 'This is what I think is so interesting: we all assume we know what we like and what suits us. But if we can be 'open minded' when hair loss arrives, there are many more options out there for every woman to try'.

This video, presented by beauty editor and presenter Nadine Baggott, gives a great insight into the purpose of the kits and the wonderful service they provide. Our enormous thanks to Sarahjane Robertson, Executive Director of Look Good Feel Better UK and Sarah Lenson, who did a fantastic job of organising on the day!).
