Hair to wear

Hair to Wear is provided by Sarah Amies, herself an alopecia sufferer who provides on site consultations for patients who have lost or who are about to lose their hair. Sarah will help patients select their wig and give advice as to how to care for, maintain and wear their wig to best effect.

Patients will then have the option to have their wig cut and styled at Boilerhouse in Acorn Rd, Jesmond by Kim Le Neveu a local Trevor Sorbie trained hairdresser of some repute.

Sarah is at NCCC on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.00am and 4.30pm.

Charlie Bear Retail Outlet

The Charlie Bear Retail outlet in the main foyer Level 2 NCCC, carries a range of headwear suitable for those who lose their hair as a consequence of the treatment, whether that be radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

You are welcome to browse the items on display, and the shop staff can give advice on headscarf tying etc.
