Beverly Hills’ Wig Fairy Foundation Offers Help for Women Facing Hair Loss
The Wig Fairy salon in Beverly Hills has partnered with the Brave Program for a wig-gifting program designed to provide high quality wigs to women facing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, and other hair loss conditions. Wig Fairy salon owner Mona Zargar shared the motivation behind this philanthropic effort. “Every time I have someone who is dealing with hair loss in my chair, I hear the same thing: ‘No one ever prepared me for what I would go through. No one prepared me to have my beauty taken away. I wish someone would have told me.’” She added, “What hurts the most for me is that I can only do so much to help.”
Zagar describes the Wig Fairy Salon as a full-service, upscale wig salon that is founded on community outreach and philanthropy. Zagar told the Courier she knew that it would take more than simply offering natural-looking wigs to women who could otherwise not afford them. Rather, she wanted to tackle the problem by offering a myriad of resources and by building a community and a network of answers for women with questions about how to deal with their hair loss.
By partnering with the Brave Program, Zagar hopes to address the needs of women looking for a solution to remedy their condition. She explained that the Brave Program, a 501(c)(3) organization, was created as a resource for women facing various conditions that cause hair loss. “Often times after the diagnoses in a doctor’s office, it is forgotten how much more there is to think about as patients move forward,” said Zagar. She explained that the Brave Program serves as a hub for a holistic application process for women to receive assistance with financial and medical needs related to their conditions, as well as a resource for providing realistic human-hair wigs to revitalize their confidence.
Zagar commented that thanks to the generosity of The Wig Fairy Foundation’s donors and volunteers, she has been able to begin the process of meeting the need for high quality wigs among women facing hair loss, but there is more work to be done. So as part of the community outreach, the Wig Fairy Foundation has extended an invitation to the Beverly Hills community to attend the launch of the Brave Program at Wig Fairy Salon (located on 161 N. La Cienega Boulevard) on November 14 at 7:00 p.m, in order to learn more about the Brave Program’s goals and how anyone can help.
