What to look for in a hair doctor?

When contemplating choosing a hair doctor there are important factors to consider. Factors that will dramatically impact the treatment you are desiring and can overall impact the result. 

Making the right choice is crucial as hair treatments can be expensive and are a sort of investment. You don’t want to put your trust in just any doctor. 

In this article we detail a few universal elements that you should look for in a hair doctor.


This may sound obvious, but not all doctors are created equal. Some, although doctors, have various specialities and perhaps they offer hair treatment options, but they don’t specialise in it. 

Looking for a provider that specialises in hair treatments, has built their business around that service and keeps up to date with the latest regarding that industry is essential. 

Things change and information can be learned, so a doctor that has their finger on the pulse of hair treatments is better equipped to service you than others.

Appearance matters too. Their facilities, website, tone of voice, and presentation of services should all be professional and in line with what you as a client need.


When researching and discussing options with a doctor it can be daunting if they are using language and terminology that is unfamiliar or misunderstood. Instead a good sign and something to look for when looking for a hair doctor is when they will be open about the process, prices and the options.

Rather than being vague in order to just do what they think is best for you, they take time to explain and make sure you understand your options. They break things down for you and it feels like you are working together rather than just being talked to.

Especially anything to do with medical procedures, whether invasive or not, transparency is key. 


This is another point that may sound obvious, but can easily be overlooked.

Experience is essential because they can talk the talk, but verified procedure numbers and actual experience is what makes a hair doctor worth their money.

Looking and choosing a company that works with people often and has a high success rate can provide you with confidence that you are making the right decision. It is a big decision and can be stressful, but knowing that you are working with a company that is tried and tested will help relieve your stress and provide you with assurance.

Experience also allows the doctors to come across a variety of situations, making them better equipped for when adjustments or perhaps more nuanced scenarios arise. They are likely to know how to handle situations better.

A hair doctor can sound great on paper, but a provider who has actually performed successfully year in and year out is where you should place your trust.

Thankfully, you don’t need to worry as here at Hair and Skin Science, we tick off every point on this list and more with flying colours.
