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

Head High also stock Ripcurl and Buff brands and a wide and varied selection of headwear to suit many tastes. We also stock a range of soft natural Bamboo headwear designed in Denmark for comfort; cool in summer and warm in winter. Available in men's and women's styles. Much of our range cannot be shown on our website so call us to view or if you are looking for something in particular we will do our utmost to find what you need.

Having lost her own hair with cancer treatment in 2009, Caroline has first hand knowledge of what hair loss is like. 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 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 and 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 NZ Cancer Society.

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