Simone
Simone Thomas is the founder of Simone Thomas Salons which includes her multi-award-winning hair salon and trichology clinic in Westbourne, Dorset, plus her hair loss clinic at Sandbanks Clinic in Poole. Simone has built a reputation within the global hair loss industry for diagnosing and treating various hair and scalp conditions. Clients travel from all over the UK and Europe, and Simone also has a number of celebrity clients.  She is also an in-demand keynote speaker at industry events and regularly appears in the national press and magazines, offering hair loss and hair thinning advice.   An award-winning registered consultant trichologist and nutritional expert, Simone employs a team of top hair directors, hair stylists, colourists and hair loss specialists who offer a wide range of services from hair cuts & colours and wedding hair to treating non-surgical hair loss and scalp conditions.  Her journey to becoming an expert in hair loss, thinning hair and scalp conditions began more than a decade ago when Simone was diagnosed with a form of cervical cancer which led to her suffering from alopecia where her healthy, glossy hair began to fall out. After seeking advice from hairdressers and doctors, Simone became frustrated at the lack of help and support for hair loss sufferers and was left disappointed at the quality of wigs, wefts and hairpieces available. It was then that she decided to turn her experience into a career.   Simone is also passionate about nutrition and exercise and has a diploma in Weight and Nutrition Management, helping clients to address their hair health from within.  Incorporating nutritional supplements packed with potent doses of the highest quality ingredients, Simone Thomas can address the health of your hair and scalp and improve your overall wellbeing.
