Trichology Scotland was born when Wil Fleeson and Margaret Simpson, two highly experienced hair salon directors each with more than 25 years of experience in the industry – decided on gaining more scientific information on hair and scalp problems to deliver to the many clients coming through their salon doors. They found themselves facing many questions, such as:
"It became evident that our clients were struggling to get professional answers to their questions, and that they felt their concerns weren't being treated seriously with care and empathy. This may be something that rings true in your mind as you read this."
"Gaining a qualified and recognised understanding in the 'science & biology' of hair and scalps, and having a accurate and detailed knowledge of the fundamental aspects that can create hair growth and skin issues was critical to us. Delivering the correct knowledge and understanding to provide honest, credible answers and solutions to our clients concerns is key."
"Knowledge, Ethics & Empathy is going to be the corner stone of Trichology Scotland."
Wil and Margaret are now Government recognised, qualified trichologists, and members of the Association of Registered Trichologists. Passing their exams with distinction.
On the journey to a trichology qualification, they studied with some of the UK’s finest experts in the fields of haematology, nutrition, dermatology, and microscopy. They attended additional seminars at the University of Bedfordshire to develop a broader understanding of the correlation between hair loss and scalp conditions and the biology of the body.
"We have launched Trichology Scotland to oﬀer all the clients that visit, accurate information, understanding and emotional support.
This has become our vision!"
"We clearly understand the trauma, upset, and anxiety that can be felt suﬀering from hair loss or scalp health. Because after meeting clients, face to face feeling this way and wanting to help them, began our journey!"
Strong ethics and credibility are the backbone of our trichologists. A holistic approach will be taken to any diagnosis as we discover through our skills of consultation and information, the root cause of any concerns.
Value for money is also crucial to us, and our consultation plan reflects this. We will commit to spending many hours researching, on your behalf, to assist in delivering a hypothesis after your initial consultation with your trichologist.
