The Hair Clinic Team

The Hair Clinic boasts a respected team of highly experienced professionals who deliver the best advice and treatment for both men and women suffering from hair loss, poor quality hair growth and scalp disorders. The team includes:

David Cuddis
Specialist consultant in Microscopic Follicular Hair Transplantation


As time went on David was instrumental in opening clinics throughout Europe, training surgeons in Switzerland, Denmark and Norway the art of Hair Transplantation.

In 1989 David opened a new clinic in the prestigious medical and pharmaceutical store of John Bell & Croyden in London's West End close to Harley Street. Thus The Hair Clinic was born. For ten years David carried out hair transplants, before retiring from the surgery to run the business and concentrate on hair transplant consultations. Using his 21 years of surgical experience, he is now in the ideal position to advise and explain during the consultation the best type of treatment for each individual.

David is a founder member of the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons and his membership of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery has taken him on symposia to Dallas, Chicago, Toronto etc.

Vanessa Bailey MIT FRSPH
Senior Consultant Trichologist


In 1991 Vanessa embarked on her career in Trichology and started training with the Institute of Trichology who are the UK's main qualifying and professional association. Interestingly in 1993 she became the youngest female ever to qualify as a trichologist. In 1996 after completing a further three years in clinical practice Vanessa was awarded the coveted membership of the Institute of Trichologists and membership of the Royal Institute of Public Health.

From a busy London base, further extensive clinical work followed advising a broad spectrum of people ranging from media personalities to politicians, busy mothers, students as well as businessmen and women. Vanessa also had the opportunity of fronting the launch of an international hair care product range and being invited on to the list of experts for a large international brand involved with producing hair care equipment.

June 2007 Vanessa had her first book published entitled The Good Hair Guide: All Your Questions Answered. This is an ideal source of reference for the public and trichology students alike.
