If the Wig Fits, Wear It…

With Confidence

It is important to choose a wig that complements your complexion and lifestyle. Work with a wig consultant to find the right style and colour for you, and also to ensure a proper fit.


A proper fit is very important, not just for how your wig looks but also for how it feels. A poorly fitting wig may cause skin irritation, headaches and visible marks.


The Canadian Cancer Society, Yellow Pages, Oncology Clinic or your health care provider will have a list of wig shops in your area. Call ahead for an appointment, comparison shop and be sure to ask questions. On the day of your appointment, bring a recent photo of yourself and ask a family member or friend to go with you to help choose your wig. They can provide support and a valuable second opinion. Take your time and try on a few different styles until you find exactly what’s right for you. Remember, all sales are final.





“Two friends came wig shopping with me. It was hard to see myself with so little hair. But it was also a lot of fun experimenting and seeing what I looked like as a redhead and a brunette.”
Linda Foggazzi, Cancer Survivor, Toronto



“For the best fit, you should have no more than a ¼ inch of hair underneath your wig so there will be no slippage.”
Zain Haji, Look Good Feel Better Volunteer Hair-Alternatives Specialist, Toronto, Ontario
