Wigs for Children
Helping parents with their child's self image challenges during hair loss has become one of my passions. I am an affiliate stylist to an amazing organization, Wigs For Kids. As an affiliate, I receive hair donations and I also do measurements for custom children’s wigs. The company supplies beautiful custom fitted wigs complimentary to families who fill out an application on the company’s website. The wig can take up to eight weeks before delivery, which can be deflating to a child or teen who has already lost their hair.
So where else do parents turn if purchasing a child's wig isn’t an option? Unfortunately, many wig salons have a very limited selections for kids and teens. Below are great links for adorable, well designed wigs for children.
