Wigs, Extensions, Scarves and Hats: A Guide to Head Coverings for Hair Loss

DSC_0020Hair loss happens for a variety of reasons including age, diet, medical conditions, or injury. Hair loss can also seem completely overwhelming; you may be trying to determine the cause, juggle medical appointments, or test a pharmacy’s worth of medications all the while searching through thousands of websites on the Internet to see what options might work for you. As someone who has journeyed through the difficulties of breast cancer and who has been in the wig business for decades, I have a lot of experience in this area and want to share information about some products that can make your hair loss struggle a little bit easier.

For those with mildly thinning hair, you might want to consider our variety of hair   DSC_0003extensions to make your pony tail a little fuller or to add some texture to a bun. We have thousands of extensions to choose from (including clip on, bonded, fusion, micro tube and tape in) so you can undoubtedly find one to blend in seamlessly with your natural hair.

If you have lost most or all of your hair, we would love to help you! We have an immense selection of wigs that look natural and can be customized to your needs. In our onsite salon we are able to color your wig and give you a custom style so only you will know that you are wearing a wig. In addition, it can be intimidating to see a wall of wigs and not know where to begin. We have a compassionate, experienced staff to help you find what you are looking for and that will explain how to use the products that are needed to keep your wig looking and feeling great including shampoos, gentle brushes, wig liners, or adhesives.

We have head scarves in just about every color with lovely patterns that comfortably, fashionably, and securely protect your head. We also have a spectrum of hats from plush velvet to embellished baseball caps to suit your style. Some even have hair pieces sew in so you have everything you need in one.

It is also important to try on your wig or head covering to make sure that it has the proper fit. We have a special area for you to try on our products with great lighting so you can be confident in your appearance. We limit photography and have this area away from windows to protect your privacy.

About Janelle P.

I am proud to be one of the foremost hair loss specialists in the Bay Area with over thirty years experience in the field. At age 12 I began styling wigs for fashion and fun and assisted my mother after she established Wig Works in the early 1970’s. My passion for hair led me to Honolulu where I worked closely with legendary stylist Paul Mitchell. I had the honor to perform onstage platform hair styling with Mr. Mitchell, as well as legendaries Jean Braa, Zenon, and Alan Bush. I was also highly involved with the development and distribution of the Paul Mitchell line and later worked as a color representative for L’Oreal and stylist instructor for Matrix. I returned to the Bay Area and expanded Wig Works, with the establishment of Extensions for Hair. The revolutionary new hair extension method offered my clients with thin hair the opportunity to augment their style rather than relying on a wig or hair clip for length or fullness. These hair extensions are popular with women of all ages. Furthermore, I survived breast cancer twice and once lost all my hair from chemotherapy, so I have a unique perspective on special hair needs.
