Chemotherapy Wigs

Michelle, a happy client


Wigs and hair replacement systems can help women bring back their confidence after going through such a difficult time in their lives. Hair loss can be extremely stressful and emotional, and something that many women struggle to cope with. Chemotherapy can cause many side effects, but experiencing hair loss itself is said to be one of the most traumatic experiences to go through. Often those who are choosing a wig for the first time can be put off by the look of a synthetic wig or NHS wig, but here at Mandeville we can give you the hair you deserve.

Our Readymade Chemotherapy Wigs for hair loss are cut and dressed on your head into any style

Mandeville London are aware of the devastating effects hair loss can cause a woman's confidence and self-esteem at such a vulnerable time in life. We pride ourselves in offering a pleasant and welcoming experience to all clients in a relaxing environment. Our Ready Made wigs for chemo patients are comfortable, breathable and most importantly, natural looking.

Celebrating 50 Years of Mandeville London Wigs

We understand that cancer is a very challenging to deal with, and for some women real hair wigs provide confidence and a sense of normality whilst going through the daily routine caused by cancer treatment. If you are undergoing chemotherapy and have decided to wear a real hair wig, we can assure you that our chemotherapy wigs are comfortable, natural looking and easy to style for day to day use.

Many women choose to wear chemo wigs because it's important to try and have as little change to your appearance as possible when losing all your own hair or experience thinning hair. Mandeville's Ready Made range of wigs for cancer patients look natural, comfortable and react exactly like a real head of growing hair. They are available in a huge range of 10 colours and 3 sizes in 12" natural European hair - rest assured we never use synthetic hair and are not a wig supplier of synthetic wigs as these are unnatural looking.


We are at the forefront of the wig making hair care industry, providing a personal and caring service and empathy to help you through this challenging time.

All Mandeville bespoke, Made-to-Measure real hair wigs for cancer patients, are all handmade using a super fine and extra strong foundation material, invented by and used exclusively by Mandeville. The wigs are made from the finest 100% natural European hair, so you can choose whether you'd like it to be straight, waved, curly, desired colour, texture and length.

Our bespoke and Ready Made wigs for chemotherapy are made by our highly skilled knotters, spending hours intricately making the human hair wig to ensure it has a natural life and bounce just like the hair grows on a real head of hair. The finished human hair wig will then be cut and dressed on the client by a Mandeville appointed hairdresser.

All of our natural looking wigs are easy to wash and style at home. We'll show you how to fit and care for real hair wig and provide you with a video tutorial to view at your leisure.

It's a lot to take in - what can we help you with?

Can you wear a wig throughout chemotherapy?

Yes, our Readymade collection provides the perfect solution for hair loss caused through chemotherapy. It is usually preferable to come to the studio before hair loss occurs so that our consultant can assess sizing options, ensuring that the fit will work throughout your cancer treatment and regrowth. Our wigs are secured using double sided medical tape and/or clips, which are interchangeable depending on head size and your personal hair loss.

How much are wigs for cancer patients?

Our ReadyMade collection is perfect if you need a wig quickly. The cost of a wig from our ReadyMade collection is £4,290 and are easy to care for and style at home with your Mandeville accessories. You should never pay VAT on your wig, hair replacement system, hair pieces or any other headwear while experiencing medical hair loss. We will ask you to fill out a VAT form as proof of your exemption.

Will wearing a wig prevent future hair growth?

No, your Mandeville wig will not prevent any future hair growth, as it is initially fitted to the scalp to be supportive of the regrowth process. Our foundations are fully breathable and are secured using an interchangeable selection of either double sided tape, medical tape and/or clips, which can be personalised to suit your regrowth pattern.

Will wearing a wig during chemotherapy feel uncomfortable?

Comfort is a top priority when selecting a wig during chemotherapy as medical wigs are a garment people wear everyday. Our wigs, especially those designed for chemotherapy patients, are made with lightweight, breathable materials to ensure comfort. It's important to choose a wig from a reputable wig fitter and maker like Mandeville London, a wig shop studio that understands the specific needs of chemotherapy patients who may also have a sensitive scalp or skin condition.

How do I choose the right size and style of wig?

Choosing the right size and style of chemotherapy wigs starts with a personal consultation, in person, with our wig specialists in our London studio, who can guide you through the process. For size, measuring your head correctly is crucial for a snug, comfortable fit. As for style, consider what will make you feel most like yourself, whether that's matching your natural hair or trying something new. Most wig fitters will offer a wide range of styles and colours to choose from and at Mandeville London, we will tailor and style your chemotherapy wig to your preferences.

Can a chemotherapy wig look natural?

Absolutely! Mandeville high-quality chemotherapy wigs made from real European human hair look incredibly natural, as opposed to synthetic wigs. The key is in the craftsmanship of the wig and the quality of materials used. Customisation options, such as lace fronts for a natural hairline can create a look that mimics natural hair growth and allows for versatile styling. For more information about how to style your wig, please visit our Tutorials page, where we guide you through the process of pinning, washing, brushing and styling the wigs.

How soon after starting chemotherapy should I get my wig?

It's advisable to start looking for your wig before chemotherapy begins. This timing allows you to match the wig to your natural hair colour and style if desired and ensures you have it ready when hair loss typically begins, usually a few weeks after the first treatment.

Will insurance cover the cost of my chemotherapy wig?

Many insurance companies do cover the cost of a wig for chemotherapy patients, often referred to as a "cranial prosthesis" for medical purposes. It's important to check with your insurance provider for specific coverage details and requirements for reimbursement.
