My Private Studio

Your first step back on the ladder of confidence
To us you are more than just a client. You’re an individual.

Scruffs Hairdressing has been established in Cambridge since 1968 and its Hair Replacement Centre is an integral part of the business. It is personally run by Garry Chapman, whose specialist knowledge in the fitting and styling of hairpieces makes Scruffs unique. If you are undergoing chemotherapy treatment or have an ongoing medical condition that results in temporary or permanent hair loss, you can be assured that after a personal consultation with Garry you will feel more confident and relaxed during this sensitive time.

Garry will spend time with you and give advice on the best possible solutions to your individual needs. An hour appointment is required for the initial private consultation, the cost for this consultation will be deducted, should you wish to purchase a hairpiece. Garry advises his clients to bring along a close member of the family or friend for support. Sheelagh van Heerden who has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer was so impressed that she persuaded the local paper to write an article about her experience.

I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Jon’s help. I feel confident, attractive, feminine and complete”.
Sheelagh van Heerden

And Sheelagh is not the only person to feel the benefit. The comments on the right are extracts from ‘thank-you’ letters that the salon has received over the years.

Each hairpiece is individually styled and cut to your requirements. Your personal contact is Garry Chapman: mobile 07780 660148. Private consultation by appointment only.

Yesterday I went to The Sanctuary in Covent Garden and exposed it to all sorts of otherwise risky activities – steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and even the swimming pool.Lesley, Essex.

Thank you so much for looking after us on Monday and making what could have been a very distressing experience so much easier.” Fiona, Cambridge.

Silently I was very apprehensive as to how I would react to the whole affair but you made it very easy.”
Sue, Lincs.

I feel brighter and lighter and less aware of wearing something on my head.Charlie, Cambs.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like a million dollars. I’ve had wonderful comments all day. You are definitely a ‘hair angel’.” Mrs Frankes, Suffolk.

I have had many comments on my wig and when I went to see the doc ..he told my husband that he thought I looked fantastic. If you can give someone like me that ‘feel good factor’ then you can give it anyone!
Sue, Herts.
