Wigworld Hi Style AwardWaterford business Wigworld was the proud recipient of Hi’s Inspirational Award at the Hi Style Awards in Cork and the Judge’s Highly Commended Recognition Award in the Enhancement Specialist of the Year category at the recent Irish Beauty Industry Awards held in Dublin.

Wigworld, which is owned and run by Joyce O’Carroll, specialises in wigs and hair pieces for people with medical related hair loss due to chemotherapy, radiotherapy, alopecia, trichotillomania and thinning hair.

A hairdresser by profession and a sufferer of natural hair loss through alopecia, Joyce established Wigworld in 2011. In her quest to find high-quality, natural wigs Joyce recognised that there was very little choice available to those who were going through hair loss.

“It was then I became conscious of the very limited options available to those who needed a natural looking custom-made wig, not only in Waterford, but throughout the South East.”

“Following my own hair loss experience I was all too aware of the dent in confidence people experience when they lose their hair.  For many their hair defines them and to suffer hair loss can be quite traumatic. I wanted to provide an alternative to badly fitted and artificial looking wigs and give my clients back their confidence and self-esteem.”

Wigworld provides a full service from fitting and styling to pre-and post-hair loss consultations, along with a wide range of real human hair wigs, synthetic wigs, custom-made wigs and hairpieces.  Joyce also utilises her hairdressing experience to cut and style the wigs and provide advice on wig management and aftercare.

“Hair loss shouldn’t define a person, but it often does. If men and women who suffer hair loss through cancer treatments, stress or alopecia can feel better in themselves by having a good quality, natural looking wig or hairpiece and it’s one less thing for them to worry about, I’m greatly satisfied with that result.”

Joyce is heavily involved in cancer charity work, most recently organising a Breast Cancer Awareness event in association with the Solas Cancer Support Centre and the Marie Keating Foundation. She regularly holds workshops on wig care / management and altered body image in many of the regions' cancer support centres including Eist in Carlow, CARE in Clonmel and Cuan House in Youghal. She also spent nearly six years volunteering as the lead Wig & Hair advisor at the Look Good Feel Better programme in UHW.

Joyce was honoured to receive her awards at two glittering awards ceremonies in Cork and Dublin and was delighted that she was nominated by her clients. “To be nominated by my clients makes these awards even more special. It’s a wonderful validation of what I do, and it only makes me more determined to expand the service throughout the region and help more people regain their self-assurance.”

All employers including the self-employed must have a Safety Statement relating to their workplace and work activities. Too often HSA Inspectors come across generic Safety Statements that are prepared by someone with no real understanding of the activities undertaken in the workplace. LCE can help you!

The Safety Statement must be reviewed and, if necessary, amended as required. This should be done on an annual basis or more frequently if for example your business changes and your employees are exposed to new hazards e.g. the introduction of new machinery or new work practices

The Safety Statement must be brought to the attention of the employees and to any other persons at the place of work who might be exposed to the specific risks outlined in the document. When bringing the Safety Statement to the attention of employees, it must be in a form, manner and, if necessary, a language that can be understood by employees.

The HSA have a great free Safety Statement development on line tool - called BeSmart  - we would recommend the use of this tool. However, if you don't feel confident to complete the Safety Statement using this tool or if require competent advise on Safety Statement preparation or revision for 2018 - contact us today for a quote on 051 364344 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
