Breast Friends have been working with Sixth Sense Salon since Summer 2015. Initially, they helped the charity with prizes for different raffle events, but then they asked us to get involved with launching NIOXIN which helps hair to grow back healthy after losing through chemotherapy.
We started this project with one of our members Julie Emery to go on a 12-month video journey to help get her life back to normal after beating breast cancer and working with her to help grow her hair back after gruelling chemo treatments. This was the start of what was to a beautiful relationship with owners Dean & Dean. Julie’s first video diary was truly inspiring and really captured how special Sixth Sense Salon really are.
After the video, The Dean’s were really moved by how much of a difference they could make by working directly with the women at Breast Friends. They called me into another meeting where they wanted to run quarterly events by inviting 10 of our members to a social evening where they learn about NIOXIN, have an in-depth consultation, receive complimentary products and then invited back for a complimentary dermabrasion with a luxury blow dry.
So far we have had 2 very successful events where everyone who attends receives a good bags loaded with products and gifts from these amazing guys.
Since the first event the ladies that have visited Sixth Sense Salon have come back to me to say that these guys truly are the most kind and thoughtful salon you could possibly go to. Not only do they help them through the tough transition period to grow their hair back, they also act a part of their support network and help boost their confidence mentally and visually.
A lot of salons do not know how to work with cancer patients, they either are thoughtless, over the top or in some occasions don’t even talk to them.
Not at Sixth Sense, the moment you walk into the salon the atmosphere is instantly warming with a really friendly team who really can’t do enough for you. Every one of the team members really go above and beyond to ensure our ladies are thoroughly looked after in every way possible. They are considerate of their needs, honest about what treatments they recommend and genuinely caring…
We are so happy to have Sixth Sense Salon in Sutton Coldfield supporting Breast Friends. This salon is a blue print of what every salon in the UK should aspire to be.
Well done guys.
Love Jackie and all the ladies from Breast Friends xxx
