So if you attend City of Sunderland Hospital and you’re losing your hair because of medical treatment, then you can choose your wig and have it fitted and cut in our private salon, and we’ll accept your NHS voucher as payment. We are now able to accept vouchers from Sunderland , Freeman and RVI hospitals as well as individual funding requests from GP,s.

Nicola’s Story

“We will be there for all your hair needs, especially the the difficult ones.”

The harsh reality of losing your hair whether it’s temporary because of cancer/alopecia/medication/stress, or life lasting due to natural thinning or balding,  can have a shattering  impact on your body image and self-esteem. Often people suffer in silence as not everyone can relate with the emotional struggles that follow. At Kitui  we take hair loss seriously and want to put an end to the emotional distress. We understand first hand the reality of  losing your hair , no matter the length. It’s because of this , and our director Nicola’s own cancer journey, that prompted us to expand our services to incorporate hair loss support to those who need it, and not only provide wigs but to slowly revolutionize what we felt was a truly old fashioned experience . we source  the worlds best wigsthen add talented modern hairdressing ,cutting and colouring and tailoring your wig to perfection , We’ve fully extended our salon with a beautiful new  priivate wig studio,weve attended the worlds best training ,weve pushed the boundries of what can be done with a wig  to enable us to cater to clients at all stages of their hair loss and ease them through their transition with experts like owner Nicola Wood who can not only help but relate… Read about Nicola’s journey
