This week I spoke to Mary Murtagh from Escape Hair Loss Clinic
Q1. Tell me about your business?
Escape hair loss clinic was established in 2012 .Based above my salon The Orange Room on Bryanstown Dublin rd Drogheda .I sold the salon part of my company in October 2022 to concentrate on my Hair loss and wig clinic .Based in Termonfeckin in a private clinic in a very tranquil and peaceful setting formy clients privacy and comfort.My experience in hair loss spans over 15 years .I trained in London with Sr Trevor Sorbie in the art of fitting and styling wigs .
My time was also spent with The Mc Mllian nurses where we spent time with cancer patients where I gained a lot of knowledge in the journey of a cancer patient and dealing with hair loss.
It’s very important to understand what my clients and patients are going through and to have empathy in such a sensitive time.
Alopeica is a key part of my business and I am one of very few in Ireland and the UK qualified in replacement for frontal fibrosing Alopecia along with the mains types of hair loss. I also do hospital and home house calls for people who can’t travel to me.
Q2. What do you think has been your biggest achievement with the business?
My biggest achievement is having been blessed to have run two very successful salons in Co Louth over 30 years and trained almost 50 staff members who are now running their own successful salons or working in others in the area.
Q3. Tell us one thing people might not know about the business?
One thing people might not know about my businessis that I’m a registered vendor for the HSE and the new Hair replacement grant available through their PRSI. Medical cards are very welcome and all necessary paper for both grants are taken care of by Escape Hair loss clinic. I also specialise in men’s hair replacement systems.
Q4. What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
The best piece of advice I have ever been giving in business was by my father and that was never to take a successful business for granted and each day in business is a different day and things can change so you always need to have a plan B and be one step ahead of any situation.
