During cancer treatment, you may have different side effects to manage, with advice from your medical team. While these can be challenging for the most part they are private to you. However, often the most visible side effect of cancer treatment is hair loss. Losing this visual part of our identity, something that we take for granted can trigger many emotions. How you decide to deal with your hair loss is up to you – some women choose headscarves, wigs or to shave their heads and embrace their new identity. If you choose to wear a wig until your hair grows back then HairWeavon is here to help.
With hundreds of wigs for you to choose from, there’s sure to be a style here that’s perfect for you. If you don’t see one that you like, or would like to explore other options contact us for support. In-person consultations take place in our comfortable, private wig studio, are free of charge and there is no pressure to buy from us.
If coming to our Dublin studio isn’t possible for you due to ill health, we can also advise you by video call, phone or email. No matter where you live, you can get professional advice on colour, style and the look that you want to achieve. Our returns policy means that in the unlikely event that what you receive doesn’t live up to your expectations you won’t be out of pocket.
Our knowledgeable team are ready to help you to decide between human hair and synthetic hair, select the right style and find the best-fitting, most comfortable option for you. But ultimately, choosing a wig is a very personal decision. It’s like finding the right perfume or skincare product. Once you do find the best one for you, you can feel more confident and more like yourself. And you can focus on the most important things in your life right now, family, friends and your recovery.
Some of the cost of your wig may be covered if you have a medical card or by your health insurance. We can check your eligibility for the HSE Wig Grant. We take care of the application on your behalf, all we need is a note from your doctor and your medical card number.
