Superheroes was the theme for the day on Friday, May 4 at Blu Hair Design in Penarth. Salon owner Alexis and her team all dressed as superheroes as part of their fundraising during MS Awareness Week.
Alexis, dressed as Superwoman, said: “I came up with the idea because everyone coping with the serious health problems caused by multiple sclerosis, and their family and friends who support them, are superheroes.”
Alexis’ father has MS and she knows first-hand the impact that it has, including severe pain, loss of mobility and problems with eyesight.
A number of her clients at Blu Hair Design also have MS, and on ‘Superheroes Day’ Alexis treated them to a complementary hair do.
Customer Pam, who has MS, was delighted to be there and agreed that making an effort to look your best was an important psychological boost.
“The rest of the Superhero team included Claire and Sophie as Batman and Robin, Harriet as Wolverine, Beth and Hayley as Superwoman, and Leanne who loves pink as Pink Feather Girl,” added Alexis.
