Women who have been recently diagnosed with cancer or who have already lost their hair due to a medical condition or chemotherapy treatments will often ask us which hat they should choose. The best hat is going to be unique to each person. We invite you to view your headwear buying experience as an enjoyable process of self discovery. All of our hats are designed to meet the unique needs of cancer patients and woman with hair loss. They provide full head coverage, are made from soft, high quality materials, they fit correctly and they are designed for a flattering appearance. We have already taken care of the basics, allowing you the freedom to explore your own style.
Some questions you can should ask yourself as you are selecting a hair loss or cancer hat are: Do I prefer casual clothing or dressy clothing? Will this hat be worn in warm or cold weather? What are the repeating colors in my wardrobe? Is my style conservative or edgy? Asking these basic questions will help you as you narrow down your options.
If you are shopping for a hat either for yourself or for a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer, it can be a challenge deciding which head covering to select. We recommend starting with basic styles first to build the foundation of your headwear wardrobe. Solid hats in neutral colors will coordinate with almost anything in your closet. Think of these as the "little black dresses" of your headwear collection. Basic neutrals include: black, navy, khaki, white, charcoal and cream. From there, you can add accessories to extend your basic hat styles to create an endless number of looks. At this point, you should also introduce hues that are flattering to your skin tone and coloring. These are those "signature colors" that bring out your features. If you are a natural redhead, for example, you probably receive many compliments when you wear emerald green. If you have blue eyes, a cobalt hat will deepen your eye color and add drama to your look. Our special occasion hats are perfect when you want to complete that knockout outfit.

For cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy treatments, it is vital to protect your skin from the sun. Some chemotherapy drugs increase sensitivity of the skin to sunlight and cause the individual to sunburn much faster than they normally would. Chemo treatments can also reduce the skin's natural ability to heal. For this reason, those undergoing cancer treatments are advised to protect themselves when going outdoors. To shield your face, scalp and neck, we recommend our sun hats or a hat with a wide brim. Our visors are also ideal when worn over a scarf to protect yourself from the elements. We also offer cancer hats crafted from fabrics with UPF sun protection in a wide variety of styles. In addition, long sleeved shirts and pants are recommended when going outdoors. A high quality sunscreen and a lip balm with a high sun protection factor will provide additional coverage. For your convenience, we offer both in our beauty department.
Our founder, Carol, envisioned a place where women with hair loss could shop that would be reminiscent of the old fashioned candy shops she visited as a child. She remembered walking into the candy store and the excitement she experienced by having so many amazing options to choose from. Her hope was that women with cancer and hair loss would have this same experience when they visited our store.
