How We Use Financial Donations

The craftsmanship is the key to the most natural looking wig. At Hair We Share we hire the best artists in the industry to create our wigs. The only way to get this quality is to hand sew hairs one at a time. Each hair is placed in a natural growth pattern. If you notice most wigs are made with heavy bangs, the reason for this is they are sewn by machine and the bangs are necessary to cover up the machine made workmanship. This is why it takes a minimum of eight weeks to craft our wigs. We are currently working to raise the funds (and hair) to make wigs that are semi custom and can easily be altered to fit any recipient, and be delivered to them within a few days.
