Wig service

 

Information about the Cancer Council Wig Service

Our free Wig Service has an extensive range of wigs, turbans, beanies and scarves in a range of styles and colours.

These may be borrowed, at no cost, for as long as required while going through cancer treatment.

Fully trained volunteers are available to assist you with the selection, fitting and management of your products.

If you have already lost your hair, please bring a photograph of yourself before your hair loss to assist with the selection. It also helps if you can wear your normal make-up, including eyebrow definition.
