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.

Ponytail Tracking Program

Many people would like to see the result of their donation. When you join our Ponytail Tracking Program, within 6 months of receiving your hair we will send you a photo of your hair in a wig. Although it is not likely, whenever possible we will provide a photograph of the recipient of the wig. Please know that most patients prefer to remain anonymous due to difficulties they face during fragile times in their lives.

The Wigs We Provide

We are backed by over 40 years in the custom design wig industry. 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. Hand sewn human hair wigs could cost up to $3,000, with hair donations we are able to save the cost of purchasing the hair. It takes 6 – 9 ponytails to make one wig, we receive many ponytails that are not funded, fundraisers exceeding the goal of $125.00 will help to fund more wigs.
