Atelier Hair & Wigs - more than just a hair salon

After 15 years, Lindsay sold “Atelier 507”, her well known and popular hair salon in Hatch End to go back to college to qualify as a teacher in hair dressing.
While still in college, Lindsay learned of premises available at Mount Vernon Hospital and knew it was the right place, at the right time. Tucked in the Mount Vernon Village, beside the entrance to the Mount Vernon Treatment Centre, the location was ideal for her to be able to take on an apprentice/assistant as well as being able to fulfill her other desire – an opportunity to “give back to the community”.
Being that Mount Vernon Hospital has a Cancer Centre, Lindsay found her niche - helping cancer patients who have lost their hair to regain their confidence and improve their self-image.
After receiving training from Trevor Sorbie MBE, a top hair consultant in London, who runs workshops which specializes in cutting, fitting and restyling of wigs, Lindsay opened her new salon “Atelier Hair and Wigs” in 1990 and over the years has built up a strong clientele database, adding to the patrons who joined her from her previous salon in Hatch End.
But Atelier Hair & Wigs is more than just a hair salon. Cancer patients at the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, realizing they may or are starting to lose their hair come to consult with Lindsay, who has a friendly, open personality and gives professional, honest advice in regards to choosing a wig.
During her consultation sessions, clients are given guidance on wig fitting and styling, aftercare to assist with re-growth of their own hair, and shown a wide range of scarves, turbans, hats, etc, to wear during this transition period. A small fee is charged, but deducted from the cost of the wig, if bought.
Lindsay and her assistant, Coral, gives 20% discount to ‘recycled teenagers,’ as Lindsay calls OAPs, on any day of the working week and do monthly special offers, such as in September a free deep hair conditioning with any hair dressing service over £20.
