Custom Wigs for Cancer Patients
Here at the Wonderful Wig Company, we supply a huge range of wigs, hair pieces and hair accessories for cancer patients experiencing hair loss.
Our founder, Nicola Wood, herself was diagnosed aged 36 with breast cancer and had her treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Newcastle. This treatment process led to Nicola’s own personal hair loss and body image concerns.
Nicola soon found that finding good wigs and a good service was difficult and many of the wig options that were available were outdated and old-fashioned. Nicola wanted to change this by helping people to access good quality wigs and up-to-date hairdressing; combining both skills to create truly bespoke wigs as unique as an individual’s own hair.
This was Nicola’s own journey and led to her founding the Wonderful Wig Company - a dedicated supplier of bespoke wigs to cancer patients and hair loss sufferers. Today, we stock one of the largest ranges of high-quality wigs in the UK, and we’re an NHS-approved supplier too - so you can spend your NHS vouchers with us and find the perfect wig for you.
About Our Custom Wig Service
As a professional stylist who herself went through her battle with cancer and experienced hair loss, our founder Nicola knows all-too-well how frustrating it can be to only find flat, lifeless looking wigs that don’t match the quality and style of real hair.
That’s why we offer a custom wig service for cancer patients and all of our customers. This is available at either of our salons in Sunderland or Newcastle, where you can make an appointment to choose a wig or multiple wigs and have them professionally styled to your specifications. This might mean colouring, layering or styling the wig to suit you. You can also use your NHS wig voucher with this bespoke wig service.
NHS Approved Wig Supplier
We’re proud to be NHS approved suppliers of wigs, hair pieces and products. This makes us hugely popular with cancer patients across the UK looking for a personal service when choosing the perfect wig for them. As well as offering a huge selection of wigs, including human hair and synthetic wigs, front-lace and full-lace wigs, we also pride ourselves on our exceptional level of customer service.
Our website includes a live chat function, we have a dedicated phone number and teams based in our Sunderland and Newcastle salons that you can contact for 1-1 advice. We also welcome appointments at either of our salons if you would prefer to receive a face-to-face experience.
We understand that this is an extremely difficult time, and if you need a helping hand to look and feel your best when choosing your wig, then please do get in touch with our dedicated team.

Our 5-Star Reviews
Patricia Davis ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“The thought of losing my hair from chemo was my worst nightmare, but I got in touch with this fantastic team during lockdown & received the most fantastic support from them. I met with Karen who instantly put me at ease & my fears & anxiety disappeared on my 1st visit. I had so much choice it was very difficult but the comments I get are truly amazing at how natural it looks.
“My hair is now starting to grow but I feel so comfortable with it that I think I will keep hair short & continue with & purchase another (total change next) instead of paying a fortune on colouring etc. I can be ready in 5 minutes, no stress getting hair looking good. Thank you so much from one very happy, satisfied customer. Nothing is too much for this team. Well done on all you have done to provide such a first class service during this horrendous pandemic, I cannot express my thanks enough.”
“My Mam and I attended the salon prior to her first chemo and the experience was outstanding from beginning to end. As you might expect, my mam was quite nervous about shopping for a wig but as soon as we met Karen we were instantly at ease. She took time to welcome us and have a casual chat, detailing her own experiences and telling us about the company which made us realise instantly that we had chosen the right place to go to.
"She also took time and consideration with trying on different wigs and made it easy for us to give our honest opinion. The room we went in was very private with beautiful decor, they have an amazing hair selection and we walked out with the perfect wig.
"I would absolutely recommend anyone going through hair loss to use this company as the service and staff were impeccable, truly lovely experience from women who do wonderful work.”
