With over 13 years’ experience Rebecca Morgan-Brennan (Founder & Company Director) a highly qualified hairdresser started her journey with wigs after a close friend came to her to ask for advice regarding her hair loss following a breast cancer diagnosis. Rebecca opened Morgan’s Hair and Beauty in July 2013 after working in and owning other hair salons.
Seeing her friend go through such a difficult journey, losing her hair and the challenges associated with feeling good and confident whilst being treated, inspired Rebecca into helping others that were suffering from a medical hair loss condition.
Whether it’s due to chemotherapy, radiology, alopecia, genetics, pattern baldness, stress, lupus, menopause, thinning hair, gender transition or other hair loss problems, Morgan’s mission is to ensure an inclusive approach to helping those living with and suffering from hair loss.
Rebecca Morgan-Brennan incorporated Morgan’s Wigs to be a part of a wider offering at the salon in January 2014 meaning that there was a comprehensive wig service for people across the North Wales coast based at Morgan’s Hair & Beauty in Prestatyn.
In 2016 Morgan’s tendered for an NHS wig contract in North Wales so that patients from Betsi Cadawaldr are now able to use their patient vouchers when purchasing a wig.
The Chester salon opens in Hoole, a small and exclusive hub just outside the city centre.
Following the tender in late 2016, a contract was awarded in January 2017, and has been every year since, meaning patients from the 3 main hospitals in North Wales can visit Morgan’s and be seen by the dedicated team at Morgan’s.
Soon after this successful tender – the process was repeated in other regions meaning that Morgan’s can now supply wigs across Cheshire and North Wales.
Our service in both our Chester and Prestatyn salons offer total privacy and confidence for all who visit us. Our client’s privacy is paramount. We are also able to offer a mobile service for all clients throughout Gwynedd.
In November 2018 we decided to move to a bigger and better premises. The Prestatyn salon is all on one floor and is fully wheelchair accessible.
We have 8 hair stations, makeup station, beauty room and a private wig room, coming to our salons is a complete experience, all about our clients. We are proud to have created a tranquil, comfortable place for all of our clients.
As well as offering all hair and beauty services much like a conventional salon, our private wig room means that we can also provide full hair loss consultations to people in total privacy. These are taken on an appointment only basis.
We were thrilled to achieve Disability confident supplier status – this is a government led scheme that seeks to create a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability, taking action on recruiting, retaining and developing people with a disability.
We realise the power of the potential our business can have with an inclusive approach to employment and are proud to be a part of such a great initiative.
We also welcomed Neil Brennan, Rebecca’s husband! A brilliant cog in this truly family run business, Neil looks after everything that makes sure the salons continue to run smoothly.
This was the year that hit many, many businesses very hard, due to the worldwide pandemic of Covid-19. Morgan’s wig provision and support for Cancer patients and those suffering from medical hair loss continued; first of all Rebecca held consultations via video from her own home, setting up a mock wig salon with lots on display so clients could see what could work for them, and then applied for a special licence to ensure the services could continue from her salon locations through the government mandated lockdown.
Despite the world being in upheaval, we were thrilled to win an award during this tough year! We were crowned winners of the Wales Social Enterprise and Community Award of the Year at the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards.
With a new lockdown continuing into the new year, Rebecca and the team forged ahead with their ambitions to create a bigger and better place for the people of Cheshire and beyond to seek hair loss advice and solutions.
In April 2021, Rebecca opened the premises in the historic Tudor House right in the centre of Chester – one of the oldest buildings in the city.
We also welcomed Clara to our team base in Chester and became the main flagship salon for UltraStrands, along with the creation of our training programme, to help more salons across the UK provide this amazingly natural hair loss solution.
