Head High

Cancer Network Group Service



At Head High Caroline and Kate hand make in NZ their own range of headwear whilst also stocking other brands and styles especially designed for people experiencing hair loss from chemotherapy, radiation, alopecia or other medical reasons.

Head High's range includes Ripcurl and Buff brands and a wide and varied selection of headwear to suit many tastes, including soft natural Bamboo headwear designed in Denmark for comfort; cool in summer and warm in winter. Sunhats, beanies, turbans and caps are all available in many men's and women's and children's styles. As not all of our headwear can be shown on our website we recommend calling us to view and organise a private consultation or if you are looking for something in particular. Our website offers a convenient purchase by Paypal service and we post all over NZ and overseas.

Having lost her own hair with breast cancer treatment in 2009, Caroline has first hand knowledge of how devastating hair loss can be. Using this experience, Caroline and Kate can genuinely understand what you are going through and are well qualified to know what you are looking for in your search for soft, comfortable, secure and interesting headwear for hair loss.

We also offer a "make to order" service; if you can't find a particular match for your special outfit we will happily try to find or make something to suit for that special occasion.

Head High is a Ministry of Health approved supplier of headwear so you can use your wig and headwear subsidy when purchasing headwear from us and we will make the process as simple and stress free as possible for you. $1 is donated from each sale to either the NZ Cancer Society, Leukaemia & Blood Foundation or The Starship Foundation.

Overseas orders can be made online should you wish to purchase and send to loved ones overseas.
