1.7 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer annually. There is currently no formal, nationwide organization to help individuals through the often traumatic experience of rapid hair loss. Hair Matters is a donations-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit, Identity Restoration Movement designed to validate, celebrate, and revitalize participants’ sense of self and identity. We offer free professional salon services in a non-medical setting to those affected by cancer treatment-related hair, skin, and nail changes.
What We Do
Have your wig custom fit and shaped while learning how to care for it. Accessorize with hats, scarves, and headbands. Receive recommendations for skin and scalp care, as well as dealing with eyebrow and eyelash loss. Schedule a make-up tutorial to complete your look.
Visit us for help with shaping and styling your hair as it grows back, easing the transition from a wig back to your own hair. Allow us to celebrate with you as you complete this life-changing process.
