• Bonded Thru Cancer and Dementia UK also targeted to benefit from event

London Fashion Week may have ended last week but this weekend will see the beauty and fashion industry take centre-stage once again as professionals come together for Battle of the Hairstylists.

Now in its second year, Battle of the Hairstylists is a charity event aimed at raising the awareness of alopecia in women as well as raising funds for Bonded Thru Cancer and Dementia UK.

Organised by Crown & Glory Couture Wigs, the event (part of their upcoming 2019 Wig, Fashion & Beauty Show) has attracted both celebrity and industry support and promises to be an unforgettable evening.

Crown & Glory Couture Wigs is the brainchild of Juliet Gee, who began making made-to-measure wigs as a result of suffering from Alopecia in her teens. Visits to her GP and subsequent dermatologist only led to prescribed wigs that she felt did her no justice and so decided to make her own high-quality wigs.

Determined to master the craft of wig-making, Juliet attended Westminster Adult Education Centre where she enrolled in a wig-making course. Still unsatisfied she started to do some research further afield which eventually took her across the pond to Atlanta (USA), where she was given an intensive 1-2-1 course with Ms Angela Crawford, the inventor of the ‘Lace Front’ wigs.

Juliet said: “There isn’t that much on offer for women suffering from alopecia. We produce wigs that instil confidence in women and that can be worn by anyone; be it for medical reasons or fashion. At some point I would like to become an NHS Wig Supplier to help raise the confidence and self-esteem of women like it has done for me. That way there’s no need for a bad hair day!”

Juliet now makes her own wigs and has them all styled by her hairstylist, Nina Greywoode from Body@PHD in Turnpike Lane, London.

This event is to be held on Sunday 29th September at Maryland Primary School, Gurney Road (entrance via Buxton Road), Stratford, E15 1LS, London.
