April 2017 : Fellow of the Trichological Society (FTTS)

Institution : The Trichological Society

Award : Fellow (FTTS)

Description : Bright red, lined black, the cowl bordered inside with 2" white.

Shape : Dublin [f2]

The Society was founded in 1999 by a group of professionals, and runs a teaching college. The hood is of a modified Dublin shape, and is used by both Licentiates (LTTS) and Fellows (FTTS). It seems to be an offshoot of the older Institute of Trichologists, founded 1902, which uses hoods of the same shape, in black, lined light blue, and bordered white.
