For a woman, loosing her hair due to chemotherapy can be quite a traumatic experience. However, for me this proved to be one of the more positive aspects of getting cancer. The whole hair loss experience was positive, uplifting and fun! From the moment I walked into The Wig Clinic in Barrak Street, I felt comfortable and relaxed. The girls were extremely professional, compassionate and understanding. I had a super experience trying on the many different styles and colours, and I will always treasure those moments. Ultimately, I decided on two fantastic wigs, one chic bob for daytime use, and another long, glamourous wig for going out at night. When the day finally came to get my hair shaved off, the hairdresser at The Wig Clinic was so genuinely caring and supportive. Overall, it was a very uplifting experience. I would strongly recommend The Wig Clinic for their empathy, understanding and professionalism on all aspects of hair loss, but especially for any women loosing their hair due to cancer treatment.
I love my hair, I look better than usual and I feel fantastic. Thank you all for your amazing care. There was no pressure and the service was amazing. You are nothing short of angels. Thanks again girls.
Losing your hair while undergoing treatment for breast cancer is a traumatic experience and it’s difficult to look and feel your best while dealing with this challenge. The Wig Clinic was recommended to me by three people with same problem. I was completely blown away by the professionalism and pure sensitivity of the staff. The discretion was simply amazing and the time invested in helping to create a personal look for you was absolutely fantastic. The amount of time invested by staff was phenomenal and I never felt rushed at any point. The staff were also very cheerful which gives an uplifting mood especially under the circumstances. I left the Wig Clinic feeling like a new woman with the most gorgeous hair piece. The customer service is second to none and I would highly recommend them to anyone under similar circumstances.
I can honestly say that I before I called the Wig Clinic I was terrified of whole concept of going for a consultation. But the moment I called I was put at ease. They were so kind and helpful. I knew I was going to be in good hands and I was on. I was advised to bring a friend and the whole experience was actually enjoyable- strange as it may seem. I haven’t looked back. I got a fabulous piece and got loads of compliments which meant that I was looking forward to going out. I wore hats and scarves at home which were comfortable and fashionable at the same time- so I didn’t look like a victim.
Thank you so much to all in the Wig Clinic for taking such good care of me. I’m finished my treatment and now any my hair is growing back. God Bless you all. X
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in feb 2012. Knowing that I was going to lose my hair during treatment was very upsetting. I went to the wig clinic in Barrack street in Cork and I have to say their service was outstanding. The girls were so professional , understanding and kind and have been great support. The wig I got was amazing, no one believes that it isn’t my own hair! It’s comfortable to wear and so easy to put on! The after care service was also fantastic, you can ring the girls anytime with any question.
With a hand on heart I can say losing my hair as a result of chemotherapy has had no impact on me at all. Shortly after being told I would lose it I visited the Wig Clinic, Fiona, the proprietor, could not have been more attentive or understanding. I was amazed the wigs were so modern and the bandana’s so fashionable, After trying on a few, I finally settled for a wig and also a little fringe to wear with my bandanas.
The first time I went to work wearing the fringe and the bandana I was a little nervous but was amazed at the complimentary comments I received from people. Women started donating little scarves to me to wear around the bandanas so I literally have one to match every outfit I wear. With the fringe underneath no-one would ever think I was bald. I’m told I always look stylish which at this point in my life is very important for my confidence.
I keep my wig for special occasions. I just pop it on and I’m ready for a night out. I’m sure people won’t believe me, but I honestly don’t care if my hair ever grows back!

Thank you so much for my lovely hair piece. I am really happy with it and my confidence has been restored… loads of lovely comments from friends and most find it hard to believe that its not my own hair… many thanks again, best wishes Hazel
This comment came to us from a client suffering from Alopecia for several years. She was delighted with the realistic quality of her new hairpiece and just how comfortable it was to wear. As it was coming up to Christmas when she dealt with us, her new hairpiece really gave her the confidence to go out and enjoy herself again.

One of our clients met us wearing a light hat during the winter. She said she had been wearing it for the past five months and wanted instead to look at grey wigs – which we did. But for choice and to make her experience a bit more enjoyable we tried on several new styles and colours.
We tried a beautiful highlighted ash blonde wig. The transformation was incredible. She got that twinkle – you know the one – when you first see the engagement ring that winks back at you! She walked out to show her husband and you could see the confidence in her walk. He threw his arms around her and gave her a hug. We ordered the grey wig just in case she changed her mind – but she didn’t. She remarked a week later how her relatives thought she was a new woman – and she was!
