ACT Hair Event sponsors mynewhair charity

Trevor Sorbie
                    Trevor Sorbie MBE

Arguably the most worthy hair charity in the industry, we were delighted to hear that mynewhair, founded by Trevor Sorbie MBE, was the charity of choice for this year’s ACT Hair Event. We were even more delighted to hear they’d filmed the whole evening. So if you weren’t one of the lucky 200 attendees, check out the exclusive interview of the man of the moment reflecting on his career HERE


Now in its 11th year, mynewhair was set up to help those affected by medical hair loss. The charity’s training programme teaches stylists everything from how to cut a wig to sensitive communication skills and client support.

On the night

The annual non-profit hair event, ACT helps to raise awareness of a different charity every year. It was created by the SLATE team, Gregory Charalambides and Michael Pitsillides, with the aim of sharing knowledge and inspiration to help others.

In addition to Trevor, the audience also got to see Zgat, Gianni Scumaci and SLATE present on stage, telling their personal stories and showcasing different hair looks.
