Will you require a wig during chemotherapy?

Dolores is the owner of the Hair Club in Dublin which was Ireland's first purpose built wigs studio. Over the course of the last twenty years Dolores has met and assisted hundreds of amazing woman from across Ireland that have been recently diagnosed with cancer that may require advice on a hair piece or wig during their treatment. 

Recently, Dolores herself was diagnosed with cancer and she decided from the outset that she would like to document her experience of going through chemotherapy, hospital visits and overall progress of how she was dealing emotionally during this difficult phase in her life. With Dolores's particular diagnoses which is bowel cancer, she was informed by the oncologist doctors at St James Hospital in Dublin that she would not lose her hair due to the specific type of chemotherapy treatment she is undergoing. From our experience many clients with Breast cancer will temporarily lose their hair during chemo.

"Many of us struggle to maintain quality wigs, pieces and prostheses as we live with alopecia. This grant will help in no small way to alleviate some of the stress the condition causes us.

“Alopecia affects people in a variety of ways but all of us know the pain of hair loss. We are grateful for the financial support towards restoring our crowning glories!”

Human Hair or Synthetic Wigs ?

Generally we find clients prefer human hair wigs over synthetic. The reason being is real hair wigs look more natural while also having the flexibility in being able to curl and style them. Unfortunately like all good things after Covid, a quality product like a real hair piece is going to cost you considerable more than two years ago. However, keep in mind human hair will last longer than their fibre counterpart.  

In this video presenter Trish Lynch popped in to see us at our hair studio in Dublin. Trish tried on the latest styles from the Mayfair Human Hair Collection and picked the Angelina wig which was absolutely beautiful.   

New Hair Toppers

We have a fantastic new range of human hair toppers. This is our own brand called Mayfair Collection which comes in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Hair Toppers are very popular for woman that have fine or thinning hair on top as the piece created natural volume.

Why Are Wig Prices Different ?

Like everything in life, you pay for what you get. The internet has thousands of companies selling wigs in different styles and qualities. Essentially cheap wigs are generally made in mass production with machine made caps a low quality synthetic hair (These would be a party or Halloween fun style wig ). Then you have medium to high quality wigs with monofilament caps that have hand stitched caps, which means you can change your parting to your liking. The highest grade wigs are Human hair with lace front caps that use the highest quality materials.
