HAIR WE SHARE
GIVING HAIR
Changing Lives

Mission Statement

To help maintain dignity, confidence and self-esteem to those affected by medical hair loss.

Who We Are

Hair We Share is based in Long Island, New York. With over 50 years experience, we are a second generation, family owned custom wig design business. We founded Hair We Share in 2014, after years of working with all types of hair loss including chemotherapy, alopecia, head trauma, accident and burn victims. The wigs we provide can have a retail value of up to $3,000.00.
We started with one teenage girl named Brooke who was severely depressed because on her hair loss. Brooke’s mom called us after Brooke’s face lit up for the first time in years, upon seeing a wig we designed on 20/20. We knew the cost of the wig would be a burden on Brooke’s young family, so we put a post on Facebook asking people to send us their hair and decrease the cost of the wig. Within one week of the post 42 people chopped off their hair and sent it to us. As people sent their hair we found we had created a sense of community for the hair donors and for Brooke. We created our Ponytail Tracking program to help cover our expenses and keep this community growing.

Cancer patients are confronted by many challenges, including facing possible death, pain, and loss of income. And for those patients who undergo chemo, they are hit with the devastation of complete hair loss.

When a cancer patient – or anyone suffering from medically induced hair loss – receives an attractive and appropriate wig, it improves their outlook and wherewithal to handle their medical and life situations.
We provide suitable wigs to children and teens who’s suffering from cancer and other medical causes of hair loss are profound.
