We had a fabulous meeting last month when Baz Oldershaw and his two very glamorous assistants came to talk about creating the perfect look for those of us who have or had to wear a wig. At the tender age of just six years old, Baz lost his hair during invasive treatment for Leukaemia. He won his battle and has dedicated his life to working with hair and wigs – helping create the perfect look for men and women facing up to losing their hair through their own battles with cancer or other health reasons.
Baz started his professional hairdresser training when he was just 17 and his career has seen him working at various leading local salons, working on the QE2 and owning his own business – Structures in Henley in Arden, which he set up in 1994.
Such was Baz’s dedication to his wig styling, he was attracting the attention of the media and local doctors and hospitals who would recommend him to patients facing hair loss.
Then, in 2006, Baz opened a new, smaller and more relaxed salon at Box Trees Art and Craft Centre in Hockley Heath – Baz Hair and Wigs Styling.
From his new salon he has helped create stunning wig styles for countless women who have lost their hair during their brave battles
Anyone interested in Baz’s wigs and styling can contact him at the salon – 07768 164731 – or visit the website – http://www.bazoldershaw.co.uk.
Thanks to Baz for giving up his spare time to show us such inspirational looks and for bringing fun and laughter to what can be a serious subject.
