Wigs 4 Kids is the helping hand for children in need of a wig, and unfortunately, in the state of Michigan, insurance doesn’t cover the cost of a wig for a child.
The first step is to fill out a Client Application - click here.
Once the form is submitted, a representative will contact you to set-up an appointment. We also kindly request families to obtain a doctor's note on a letterhead stating your child or teen is in need of a wig. Please bring the doctor’s note to your 1st visit. If your child has experienced hair loss, bring prior photos.
During the 1st visit, we will measure and order the recipient's hair prosthesis and select their style, color, and length of hair desired.
At the 2nd visit we will fit, cut, style, and educate the recipient on how to maintain their new wig.
The 3rd visit entails making any necessary adjustments, review care instructions and photograph the before and after pictures of the recipient.
Every child will be given:
- wig shampoo, conditioner and wig comb
- netted cap to be worn under wig to keep it secure
- head form, stand and wig box for wig when not in use
- tee pins to secure wig to Styrofoam head
- wire wig stand to use after cleansing
- chinstrap to secure wig when styling
- sleep cap to be worn at night
As a courtesy to families, Wigs 4 Kids offers free additional services including:
Educational Support Services
The Educational Support Team strives to give children and young adults the opportunity to meet other kids going through similar health challenges and build camaraderie with their peers by offering activities & classes which boost self-esteem. Activities are available in the early evenings and weekends throughout the school year.
Classes include art and music therapy, nutrition, beading and
self-empowerment through self-image in social group settings.
