Hi, I’m Jonny Harris, one of the directors of The Belgravia Centre,the UK's most renowned hair loss clinic, and the author of The Belgravia Centre’s Huffington Post blog.

I have spent many years studying and researching hair loss and many of its surrounding issues. For a long time, it has been an aim of mine to wipe out the stigma that has existed for so many years about the idea of the lack of effective treatments to prevent and reverse hair loss.

The Belgravia Centre treats many thousands of patients with various hair loss conditions, and our large online archive of hair growth success stories is proof of what our treatments can achieve.

Read the blog to find out my views on the latest hair loss news, from celebrity hair transplants to ground-breaking research.
