4. BBC Radio Manchester 2019
In 2019, our founder, Ali Nowroozi, shared his inspiring story on BBC Radio Manchester.
He spoke about his time in the wig industry. While doing so, he realized the vulnerability of cancer patients. At the time, he only saw unexciting headwear designs. Additionally, they solely were for practicality. Ali yearned to create a superior alternative. In doing so, helping people experiencing hair loss from alopecia, chemotherapy, and cancer. Hence, the idea to launch a range of fashionable, seasonal headwear materialized.
