What is the White Cliffs Foundation and what does it do?
WHITE CLIFFS Hair Studio prides itself on leading the Hair Replacement industry via its dedication to people, trustworthiness, and being an agent for change in an industry that has resisted change. We care about our clients as well as the community we serve.
Staying true to our founding values, we have created a nonprofit entity that allows access to those Hair Loss sufferers who need and desire our Hair Loss services but cannot afford them.
The WHITE CLIFFS Foundation gives hope to UK Hair Loss sufferers of any age by providing no-cost Hair Replacement for two eligible individuals per month – chosen by a committee of foundation Patrons. Whether due to medical Hair Loss issues such as Alopecia or illness, WHITE CLIFFS believes that Hair Loss should not hinder a individual’s self confidence, expression, creativity, or their ability to live life to the fullest.
The WHITE CLIFFS Foundation is true to our beliefs that that “The Important Thing In Life Is Living It”.
