From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Therese Hughes MBE is a Northern Ireland hairdresser in Newry, County Down who provides a specialist service for patients suffering hair loss as a result of treatment for cancer, alopecia and for various other reasons. She was awarded a MBE in the 2008 Honours List in recognition of her work with patients in The City Hospital, Belfast, Northern Ireland.[1] Hughes owned several hairdressing salons before deciding to exclusively focus her expertise in providing wigs and hairpieces. She decided to launch this service in Northern Ireland after watching a woman going through the distress of hair loss following chemotherapy for breast cancer.[2]. Hughes has now extended her service to the Republic of Ireland in conjunction with the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre in Drogheda, County Louth.
