Ahead of Beauty is a 501(c)3 BIPOC led nonprofit organization dedicated to providing human hair wigs and other cranial prosthetics to individuals who have lost their hair due to cancer and alopecia. Our mission is to empower individuals with medical hair loss to regain their self-confidence and feel beautiful inside and out.
For some, hair loss can be traumatic
We understand that experiencing hair loss can be a traumatic experience for many people, as a person’s hair can be deeply tied to their sense of self and confidence. With that in mind, we want to provide cranial prosthesis options for those who otherwise cannot afford the cost of a high-quality, natural-looking, human hair wig/cranial prosthetic.
Ahead of Beauty strives with the aim of subsidizing underserved qualifying patients with cranial prosthetics costs. The process for creating wigs and other cranial prosthetics made from real hair is costly and time-consuming. Our Affordable Access Program for qualifying low income patients relies solely on the support of generous sponsors, donors, salons and stylists.

Ahead of Beauty recognizes the stress of patients that have cancer and alopecia. For many people, hair loss can be a truly frightening ordeal. Such an experience has the potential to cause a great deal of emotional distress, which can impact patient healing. Coupled with the actual illness itself, the financial responsibilities associated with treatments, can be overwhelming.
Many women and children in particular experience a great deal of insecurity, sorrow and often times anger, regarding the loss of their natural hair. That’s where Ahead of Beauty comes in.
We are a team of dedicated volunteers that have come together to help provide high-quality, human hair wigs and other cranial prosthetics to individuals in need. Simply reach out to us using the link below and provide us with the necessary information to see if you qualify for one of our one of a kind, custom units.
Ahead of Beauty operates solely on grants, corporate sponsorships and private donations from generous individuals and stylists.
Upon review of a patient’s application, we obtain your measurements and begin the process of providing a custom wig or cranial prosthetic.
After construction, the unit is colored to the patient’s specifications and styled before it is sent to the patient.
Ahead of Beauty prosthetics are adjustable, lightweight, natural looking and come in a variety of colors and styles. Contact us for more information.
