About Trichocare

TrichoCare has a wealth of experience in providing events and education in Trichology – the science of the hair and scalp.

TrichoCare Education was founded by Brian Plunkett ART MIT, who ran salons in Hertfordshire before qualifying as a Consultant Trichologist. Brian Plunkett is a former Vice President of the Institute of Trichologists, and now practises at clinics in Bedfordshire and London.


Our approach at TrichoCare Education stems from Brian’s many years of trichology practice. We firmly believe that most common hair and scalp disorders can be treated by hair professionals through accurate diagnosis and without the need for complicated courses of treatment.

Brian is passionate about teaching and improving skills. When hair professionals learn to understand more about hair and scalp problems, they can give a more informed, helpful and valuable service to their clients.

“Taking a qualification in Trichology will open the door to many opportunities for you as part of a new generation of hair professionals. It increases your knowledge and skills, offers new revenue opportunities and give you more exciting career options.”
