My loved one is undergoing treatment for chemotherapy, can my hair be used to make a wig for them?

Posted January 31, 2018

This is a question we get quite frequently. Nell’s does not take in hair to make custom wigs for guests. There are many factors and steps taken to make a human hair wig.  An average wig to construct and build takes about four full heads of hair. Additionally, there is a specific process in which the hair has to go through in order for the hair not to tangle and matte up when being washed. On average, a custom wig can take anywhere from 12-16 weeks from final measurement and approval to receiving your final product. This timeline unfortunately does not work for the majority of our guests undergoing chemotherapy.

Nell’s Wigs is a full service wig salon dedicated to discreet and personable service. Whether you need a wig for medical hair loss, fashion, cosmetic, work, travel or fun, our mission is to make you feel comfortable and confident in your style. We will work with you to find your perfect wig.

Thank you for the consultation with Samantha today. I LOVE my wig. I sent a picture to my friend and she thought it was my real hair! Thank you!
