Hair stylists are trained to spot skin cancer.

Hairdressers in New Orleans, America, have been trained to look out for the tale-tale signs of skin cancer when cutting their clients hair.

Stylist, Lois Eiermann, spotted an unusual disfigurement on her clients scalp whilst cutting her clients hair: “She came in and I told her that she had a spot on her scalp that looked suspicious and to go get it checked. I didn’t see her for a while, and when she came back in the next time, her son said, ’we want to thank you, you saved her life. She had squamous cell, and she wouldn’t have seen it in her scalp.”

Lois has since set up “Mark the SPOT!” – a nationwide campaign that consciously trains stylists how to spot skin cancer, as more people are likely to visit a hairdresser than a dermatologist.

“I think it’s important to be here because we see so many scalps and necks and I think it’s important for us to be educated,” said one stylist, Sandy Vasquez.

Would you like to see a similar campaign in the UK?
