Advanced Hair Studio appoints rugby star as ambassador

Derick Hougaard

Former Springbok flyhalf, Derick Hougaard, has been announced as the latest South African ambassador for leading hair restoration company, Advanced Hair Studio.

“I’m really excited to be a part of something as innovative as the treatments offered by Advanced Hair Studio,” says Hougaard. “Balding can affect anyone, whether it’s due to age or genetics. When it does happen, it brings with it a loss of confidence. But I am happy to see the progress Advanced Hair Studio has made in reversing my hair loss.”

He reveals that he started seeing the effects of male-pattern balding several years ago but decided it wasn’t worth worrying about until recently.

Hougaard joins a long list of names who have also had Advanced Hair Studio Treatments to thank for their new hair, including South African cricketers Jacques Kallis and Farhaan Behardien; Indian cricketing legend, Sourav Ganguly; English rugby player, Austin Healey; and local comedian, Leon Schuster.

Founder and CEO of Advanced Hair Studio, Carl A. Howell, comments: “We are excited at having Derick Hougaard join our ‘hall of fame’ as our latest brand ambassador. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship and the electric energy he brings with him," Howell concludes.

“Having worked with other sportsmen and celebrities from all over the world, we have come to understand the impact of star-power and Derick exudes it by the dozen. He was an incredible rugby player and rather than simply getting someone to tell you about our brand, Derick can show you that our solutions are effective and positively change lives,” says Howell.

Advanced Hair Studio has androgynous solutions which are administered by qualified personnel. Treatments include Strand-by-Strand (non-surgical), Advanced Laser Therapy, Advanced Singular Hair Transplantation and Stem-Cells Hair Technology Treatments.
