So my sister will loose her hair shortly due to stem cell transfusion in a few weeks. She has myeloma and has coped ok so far but is now devasted at the thought of loosing her hair. She instantly said Im not having a wig. So when I was in the hairdressers this weekend a lady was havjng a human hair wig cut and look fabulous. Want to approach my sister with this idea. Anyone on here got one and how easy are they to purchase and wear?

Look up Trevor Sorbie

He does wigs and/or probably has links from his page

Good luck

My friend has a wig shop, she suffers from alopecia & is a wig or alternative hair wearer herself, she sells all types of hair & can cut & style them. She is near Sheffield but does Skype consultations if needed.

You shouldn't need to buy one.
The trust she's under should give her a voucher and a list of places she can go to. So there are 6 or 7 in my trust's area (the reason I know, cancer hospital in the NW). Has she maybe declined this? - or they might not have offered. I'd try Maggie's or the local Headstrong via this link for advice. All the best to your sister.
