Hair Replacement & Hair Styling

Hair replacement is a difficult issue for most patients.   If you find your cancer treatment affecting your hair, please know there are caring stylists who can help.  Below you’ll find both free services and paid providers who help those who lose hair during cancer therapy.  Many stylists work by appointment, so please call first.  

If you choose a paid provider, check with your insurance carrier about coverage.  Wigs, like other prostheses, may be covered under durable medical equipment.  Your insurance may require that you purchase through a specific vendor.
