Simon Lane knows about hair loss
Aged just two he was the victim of an accident in the kitchen of his family home in Brandwood Road, Birmingham. Reaching for a teapot that had been left momentarily unattended, he tipped scalding hot water onto his scalp.
He was scarred for life.
Years of wearing ill-fitting, unsuitable hairpieces and misery at the hands of school and workplace bullies followed, before Simon became the first recipient of a hair transplant onto scarred scalp tissue.
This was a significant step in his hair loss journey told in brutally honest fashion in his autobiography, It’s Only Hair. In the book, Simon reveals the stresses and realities of hair loss and how it can dominate your life.
Simon overcame many trials to discover scalp micropigmentation, becoming one of the first practitioners of the process and now a director of one of the world’s most prestigious SMP businesses, Brandwood Clinic which has facilities in Solihull and Cape Town. Simon now helps those who similarly struggle with their hair loss.
From the casual disregard by the medical profession which gave the story its unforgettable title to Simon’s emergence as a multi award-winning expert and world leader in hair loss and scalp micropigmentation, It’s Only Hair is a revelation.
