For­mer Eng­land cricket cap­tain Michael Vaughan has teamed up with man­ager of the Welsh na­tional foot­ball team Ryan Giggs to launch a new hair trans­plant clinic.He will open his sec­ond MHR Clinic in part­ner­ship with Mr Giggs and hair restora­tion ex­pert Craig Hen­ton, af­ter Leeds City Coun­cil granted the trio per­mis­sion to con­vert build­ings on Hare­wood Es­tate into a hair restora­tion clinic.

Ren­o­va­tion of a 950 sq ft unit in­side Hare­wood Yard be­gan last week af­ter the com­pany signed a five-year lease with the es­tate. The new clinic’s open­ing is pen­cilled in for mid-Fe­bru­ary next year.

Mr Vaughan, who also played for York­shire County Cricket Club, said the trio were ex­cited about ex­pand­ing the MHR Clinic brand.

He said: “The busi­ness has grown year-on-year since it opened in 2016 and it cur­rently oc­cu­pies a strong mar­ket po­si­tion. This clinic seeks to build on that, so we can gain a greater mar­ket share in a rapidly grow­ing in­dus­try.”

The crick­eter him­self un­der­went a fol­lic­u­lar unit ex­trac­tion (FUE) hair trans­plant when he opted for surgery in 2009.

He teamed up with the for­mer Manch­ester United winger and Mr Hen­ton af­ter ex­pe­ri­enc­ing pos­i­tive re­sults from his own trans­plant and re­al­is­ing that de­mand for the pro­ce­dure was grow­ing rapidly.

Mr Vaughan, who has sev­eral other busi­ness in­ter­ests, said: “MHR Clinic is al­ready one of the lead­ing hair restora­tion clin­ics in the coun­try, if not the lead­ing hair clinic.

“It has be­come the choice of high pro­file per­son­al­i­ties seek­ing hair trans­plants and treat­ments.”

Ear­lier this year, the clinic car­ried out a pro­ce­dure for foot­ball ref­eree Mark Clattenburg. MHR also did work on for­mer English crick­eter Michael Lumb’s hair as well.

The busi­ness looked at sev­eral lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing premises at Haggs Farm and Spa Bot­tom Farm in Spof­forth, be­fore opt­ing for Hare­wood.

Mr Vaughan said: “We are de­lighted to be bring­ing MHR Clinic to York­shire. York­shire is close to my heart for ob­vi­ous rea­sons and it is also Craig’s home.

“The plan was al­ways to open our sec­ond MHR Clinic in York­shire as soon as pos­si­ble.

“York­shire, and es­pe­cially the Har­ro­gate area, was an ob­vi­ous fit for the brand be­cause MHR Clinic de­liv­ers qual­ity and the re­gion’s peo­ple un­der­stand value and qual­ity.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to help­ing men and women in York­shire tackle their hair loss and ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits of the treat­ments that have worked so well for each of the part­ners.”

The clinic will of­fer be­spoke pro­grammes for hair loss that com­bine hair restora­tion medicines with FUE or fol­lic­u­lar unit trans­plan­ta­tion (FUT) trans­plant pro­ce­dures, low level laser ther­apy and her­bal reme­dies.

It will house con­sul­ta­tion rooms and trans­plants will be un­der­taken by hair trans­plant sur­geon Ioan­nis Mar­ma­gi­o­lis at a clinic in Dublin.

CEO Craig Hen­ton, who is from Holm­firth, said: “Con­fi­den­tial­ity is es­sen­tial for our clients, as a de­gree of taboo still ex­ists around hair restora­tion treat­ments and the high level pro­ce­dures and treat­ments we of­fer are cen­tral to MHR’s success.

“We needed a lo­ca­tion that would re­flect both as­pects of the com­pany and the pri­vate grounds of Hare­wood, and par­tic­u­larly Hare­wood Yard, fit the pro­file per­fectly.”

Ben Las­celles, es­tate di­rec­tor of Hare­wood Es­tate, said: “Hare­wood Es­tate is glad to wel­come MHR Clinic to Hare­wood Yard, which is al­ready home to a num­ber of suc­cess­ful busi­nesses.”

The plan was al­ways to open our sec­ond MHR Clinic in York­shire.
