Hair for Hats - Juliet's Story
This human hair hat wig transformed my journey through chemotherapy. I wore it every day, 16 hours a day, for seven months. Under a beanie at home, and under my favourite hats and scarves when I went out.
It made a huge difference to my family who weren't constantly reminded of what we were all going through. My self-consciousness about hair loss disappeared with it on. I loved that everyone else treated me normally too.
I created Hair for Hats to share this with others.

No one will know there's no hair under your hat!
After being diagnosed with breast cancer in August I began researching options for chemo related hair loss. I looked into cold capping and decided that wasn’t for me. I know lots of woman embrace the bald look and I don’t mind being bald around family and friends but in public I wanted another option. I bought a wig , but it just felt hot, uncomfortable and not me. I stumbled upon hair for hats website by accident and I am so glad I did. Such a beautiful story of how the company was founded and it looked like a perfect solution., plus I love supporting a small business. Even though I am in the US my order was sent promptly. I enjoy the ability to have a comfortable solution when I leave the house that makes me not feel like a sick cancer patient. I highly recommend this hair loss solution.
In LOVE. I purchased two mid-length in honey-blonde to create a holo effect. They are perfect. As I head into my hair-loss journey, I would bet big bucks that these will be my go-to versus the wig that I bought; they feel so silky soft and are comfortable to wear... picture to follow! :)
After 20 weeks of chemotherapy, I had hardly worn my wig that I had purchased, it was hot, itchy and kind of like wearing I tight pair of high heels!
I wondered how I was going to get through summer while my hair was growing back. I wanted to be able to wear a hat to protect my bald head from the sun, but still feel like a normal person, not a cancer patient.
So happy I found hair for wigs! It arrived in NZ just days after ordering and I instantly ordered a 2nd section of hair for the back. Awesome invention - thank you!
This little hair piece is perfect. I have hair loss from chemotherapy and bought an expensive wig early on (which I also love on the right occasions) but I don’t always want to put the full wig on when I do a quick run to the shop or school pick up etc. I looked into making something up myself to wear under beanies but was then referred to Juliet by my lovely BCWA nurse. It is a simple idea which looks and feels great. The colour is very true to my real hair, my kids even thought my hair had grown back :)
Thank you Juliet for giving me another option to look good and feel better in what is a very upsetting time of my life.
Just received my order and couldn't be happier with this hairpiece! Works perfectly for wearing with a baseball cap and having hair rest behind the ears. Just in time for summer approaching! Just slip on and go...very comfortable and looks and feels so natural. Juliet was more than helpful in answering questions and directing me in the right direction to purchase hats that can be worn with it. Looking forward to wearing it different ways with different headcovers.
I'm so happy with this hairpiece, it looks so natural and its easy and practical to wear. So good, I've purchased the second piece for the back of my hair. I did try wigs at the beginning of my journey but not for me. This is more me, real hair in a colour that suits. It's lightweight and comfortable. There's no fidgeting to keep it in place. Thank you very much it's just so easy to pop on and go, no double looks from people, it looks like my own hair.
Recently purchased the blonde headband with my mum and it is amazing, the service was absolutely wonderful.
Would highly recommend for anyone going through chemo who is looking for something stylish, comfortable and easy to use.
This product was an absolute game changer, just what i needed,nice and cool, quick and easy, so nice to have the feel of natural hair around my face!!
I recently lost almost all of my hair after a bout of covid then shaved the rest off, and while I love wigs, I tend to wear hats more often as they are easier to throw on - I live in an especially windy city, too, so a hat tends to be a lot less stressful to manage. I recently purchased one of these headbands and, oh my goodness, what a game changer! Suddenly I no longer look like I'm covering up a naked scalp (people can always spot it and I'm really over the curious glances), and instead appear to have simply added a hat or scarf to bring a bit more glamour to my 'look'. Honestly, they are beautiful quality and so versatile, not to mention comfortable to wear - you can not only flip them around, but flip them over too if you don't want the seams touching your head. Definitely worth adding to your hair accessories asap!
Our Hat Wig Options
Hair for Hats comes in three lengths, two thicknesses and a selection of beautiful colours and halo hair styles:
MID-LENGTH Hat Wigs
Mid-length hat wigs are generally worn at the front of the head, providing a perfect amount of hair to soften and frame your face, looking like there's a full head of hear under your hat.
LONG Hat Wigs
Long human hair hat wigs sit at the back of the head, re-creating a long hairstyle and giving the illusion that you have a full head of hair under your scarves, beanies and hats. These are twice as thick as the short and mid-length hair pieces. For a thick mane, attach two long pieces with a small overlap at the back, providing a perfect "halo" wig.
Halo Hair Hat Wig Combinations
Combine two or three short, mid-length and/or long hat wigs to re-create your style. Each are available in a variety of beautiful colours.
TWO PIECES FOR $300
Attach two hat wig pieces to the one headband for a "halo wig" - providing coverage around the full circumference of your head (applied at checkout)
