A stylist who trained with Vidal Sassoon in London has opened a salon in Wingerworth to help women suffering from hairloss.
Rowan Adlington trained at Sassoon in the 80s and worked for several salons during her ten years in the capital before moving home to Chesterfield. She set up he own salon in the town, then moved it to Wingerworth 17 years ago.
Arkadia Too is a regular hair salon, with a specialist service for customers with hair loss issues who are requiring advice or wigs.
“I got involved with the My New Hair charity founded by celebrity hairdresser sir Trevor Sorbie) around five years ago when I realised there was little support for people who through medical or stress related problems had hair loss issues,” says Rowan. “I think it’s really important for people to feel confident and look good, no matter what stress they might be going through.”
Arkadia Too has product ranges by Kevin Murphy (Kylie’s Australian hairdresser) and Philip Kingsley, who is a hair expert and former chairman of the Federation of Trichologists. “We also stock Moroccanoil, plus the specialised hair reviving range Nioxin and Revita and hair extensions, flashes and feathers,” says Rowan.
