Here are some organisations and suppliers of wigs and other headwear. Remember staff at the hospital will advise you on where to go to choose a wig or suggest organisations for you to use. The companies we list here offer a range of services and wigs. You may need to contact a specialist supplier if you are black or from an ethnic minority.
This is not a comprehensive list but may help you find a wider variety of wigs, hats and other head coverings. If you decide to buy a wig from a store or online without trying it on, check their return policy before you buy. Some of the companies are specifically aimed at people who have hair loss due to cancer.
Most of these companies have been recommended by visitors to our website.
