In the making

Went to the wig manufacturer for our 3rd wig this morning. Brought along with me are all the hair I have to let them select and match.

3 donor’s ponytail were selected. Gloria’s, Sapphire’s and the most recent donor, Vanessa. The wig will be ready in December, and will be donated to NCCS.

The selected ponytails on the right.

The lead time for this wig will be slightly longer than the previous two, because they have a lot of orders to rush. Donors will be informed once the wig is done.

Just in time

Today, we received another ponytail from a hair donor who wish to remain anonymous. Thank you for your donation!

We would also like to thank Sann, our volunteer who help to collect the ponytail.

According to the donor, the ponytail measures around 11 inches long. If so, it came just in time to be used for our third wig, which was planned for December.

3rd wig coming soon

As some of you may have heard that we are currently planning for our third wig, which should be ready before December, if not, early December.

This wig will be a short wig, totally different from the previous two. As for what style it would be, I can’t really tell you right now. The only issue we faced is if we have enough hair for this wig.

Don’t get me wrong, currently we do have enough hair for at least 3 long wigs, but to make our third wig, we required some shorter length. As you can see from the donors’ page, all the hair donated are at least 15 inches long. So we called our vendor for some advice.

After talking to our vendor, the only way out now is to select the correct ponytail(s) and chop it in a way that no hair will be wasted. It’s a tough decision as I don’t really like cutting those hair donated. But if we have to do it, we have to do it.

As for who’s hair will be used and how are we going to chop it, we will announced it at a later date once we have decided. So do look out for more updates in the coming weeks.
