"Frobishers is where my whole life changed"
I started losing my hair at the age of 15 years old. This affected me and how I felt, I lost all my confidence and didn’t think I would find a boyfriend!
At the age of 22 I was referred to the NHS local hospital and there they provided young girls with wigs. I was given a real hair wig but it was awful and I hated wearing it, synthetic wigs were not available. In 1972 things changed slightly, synthetic wigs became more available and large department stores started to sell wigs, such as Debenhams. This is where I bought my wigs.
In 1983 I moved to Felixstowe and was a patient at Ipswich Hospital and they referred me to Frobishers and this is where my whole life changed. The choice of wigs was amazing and the help and advice from the staff was wonderful and so understanding. Wearing the right wig changed my whole life, I became more confident and increased by self-esteem. The people around me didn’t seem to notice and it didn’t matter to them, in fact I was getting compliments from friends and people in general about how good I looked.
Frobishers is a warm and welcoming place, the staff are always friendly and helpful. I have been wearing wigs now for many years and I will always go back to Frobishers for that perfect style!
