Jasmin Julia Gupta Founder charity Cancer Hair Care & Twin Hats

I’m Jasmin Julia Gupta founder of charity Cancer Hair Care (registered charity Caring Hair 1145258). I'm the UK's leading expert in hair loss due to cancer treatment. I trained as a hairdresser from age 17 at Trevor Sorbie in Covent Garden. Aged 28 I became Director for Hairdressing Trevor Sorbie International. My global hairdressing skills took me all around the world working along side celebrities and fashion designers. But my moral compass to help a different kind of VIP was set in one direction.    

In 2005 I set upon a path to work with VIP's Very Important Patients. Along with a fantastic and dedicated team my charity Cancer Hair Care is now leading the way in supporting people before, during and after hair loss due to cancer treatment. We specialize in support for children and young people but also offer our services to women and men. If you know anyone who needs our support (its all FREE) please get in touch at www.cancerhaircare.com

Twin Hats a social enterprise

With another hat on! I’m also known as “Twin Giver” as I set up this social enterprise Twin Hats selling beautiful fairly traded wooly hats to regular folk. Every hat you buy we give one to a child with cancer.

I also like to get my thinking hat on within my voluntary & campaigning work. I am passionate about addressing every day matters that I believe will make a fairer, healthier and safer world for the here and now and future generations. My voluntary work for both the Fairtrade Foundation (Chairwoman for Hertfordshire Fairtrade for 5 years) and campaigner for Resurgence, fundraiser for Friends Of The Earth, The Terrance Higgins Trust and many other great charities has helped me to identify needs in society that can be supported with every day purchases such as a hat www.twinhats.co.uk.
