Haircutting

Based on your preferences, we can cut or clipper cut your hair to prepare for hair loss.

Preparing for hair loss.

Our haircutting service is included in the cost of your initial consultation. After discussing your wishes during your consultation, we are equipped to trim or cut your hair shorter to minimize the impact when it begins to fall out. We are also able to clipper cut your hair with using a guard.  We do not use a straight edge razor to “shave” your head.

Hair cutting for wigs.

Hair Matters is working hard to develop our program that allows clients to have their own hair made into a wig or hairpiece, which can be worn during treatment. Please discuss this possibility with your stylist. Another option for clients, should they desire, is to donate their hair so we can collect it and use it for a future wig recipient.
