NEW Sign Language Service for clients at Ego Hairdressing
“My name is Suzanne Hodkinson and I have been working as a Creative Hairstylist at Ego in Burton-on-trent for 8 years and hairdressing for 11 years. During this time I have built a loyal and friendly client base. However, I am now excited to be able to broaden this client base and offer my skills to a wider audience through the use of sign language.
I am a mother of two children. My eldest has profound hearing loss and no speech and therefore our main form of communication at home involves signing we use both Makaton and British Sign Language. I can relate to families and individuals that use signing and appreciate how challenging it can be to communicate everyday with people that are unable to sign.
I would like to think that when my daughter is old enough to go into a salon to have her hair done without me there that she could be understood. This is what I’am offering at our newly refurbished salon Ego, not just a hair cut but a friendly and welcoming experience to people like my daughter that have hearing loss or rely on sign language.”
