One of the hardest thing about chemo is loosing your hair. But if you’re proactive, we can make a custom halo from your own hair before it falls out. Worn under a hat or head covering, they are lightweight, easy to wear and comfortable- just put it on and go. Halo wigs make your premium wig last longer by alternating wears, and the hair can be re-used for extensions 4-6 months after your hair starts to grow back. Free pre-chemo haircuts included with purchase.

Schedule a free haircut before losing your hair to chemo.
You can schedule a free hair cut with us before you lose your hair- usually 2 weeks from the first treatment or no later than 10 days after your first treatment. We will section off 1 ½″ ponytails, and cut the hair as close to the scalp as you let us, ensuring all hairs are facing the same direction to minimize tangling. The shorter you cut it, the more length you will have on the halo. Hair strands are then made into a straight line called “wefts of hair”, and sewn from temple to temple onto a comfortably-knitted cap that surrounds your head in a “U-shape”. Creating a halo wig is labor-intensive and can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks. The cost is $1,000. If there’s not enough hair to make a halo, we can supplement hair for an additional $100 per 16” of hair. They are available in 19”, 21”, and 23” cap sizes, and can be straight, wavy or curly.
“Thanks for the great halo cap. I had such a good time in your shop yesterday! I love my hair! I will give it a wash tomorrow and let you know how it turns out. I also posted a 5-star review on Yelp with pictures. I work for OrigamiUSA, which has helped me through this difficult time. Origami is for anyone, anywhere, any time!”
