How it works

Eligibility

You must be a New Zealand citizen or resident and have a medical certificate from your specialist or GP detailing your hair loss condition (whether permanent or temporary).

Choose Your Wig

Book an appointment with your nearest Wig Consultant (we have over 20 throughout NZ) for a free, private consultation to discuss your needs and select your wig, hairpiece, or headwear. We provide premium human hair wigs that you can put your subsidy amount towards, and a variety of synthetic wig options that match the Ministry of Health Subsidy amount, meaning there’s no additional cost to you (below).

Subsidy Entitlement Amounts

The entitlement period begins with your first purchase.

  • Adults over 18 with temporary hair loss (eg. Chemotherapy): $408.88 annually 
    You can claim all part of your entitlement at any time within 1 year. Synthetic wigs are the most popular choice for clients with temporary hair loss, and most of our synthetic wigs are priced within this value.
  • Adults over 18 with permanent hair loss (eg. Alopecia): $2330.66 over 9 years 
    You can claim all or part of your entitlement at any time within 9 years. Human hair wigs are the most popular choice for clients with permanent hair loss.
  • Children under 18 with temporary or permanent hair loss: $1226.65 over 3 years or until they turn 18
    If you are under 18, your entitlement is the same regardless of whether hair loss is temporary or permanent. You can claim all or part of your entitlement at any time within the 3-year period.
  • ACC covers hair loss caused by accidents and burns, and we are an Approved Wig Provider for ACC. We see many clients with scalp scar tissue that precludes hair growth. When full hair loss exists, a full prosthetic wig must be designed. In that case, we quote directly to ACC.
Who can claim the subsidy? Subsidy Amount Entitlement
Period
Adults over 18 years with temporary hair loss (Cancer, etc) $408.88 1 year
Adults over 18 years with permanent hair loss (Alopecia, etc) $2330.66 9 years
Children under 18 years with temporary or permanent hair loss $1226.65 3 years, or until you turn 18 (if that happens first)

Claim Process

Your local Wig Consultant can handle the paperwork for you, free of charge, by applying for the subsidy on your behalf. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can purchase your wig online on our website and make the claim yourself to the Ministry of Health to receive your subsidy. Just email us at info@wigs.co.nz to receive the form and instructions to claim your subsidy.

Hello Just a note to tell you that I have received lots and lots of compliments on my wig I purchased from you. The doctors (woman consultants) kept looking and said it was the best and most natural they have ever seen and then they come up closer to have a look and feel. I look great in the wig and feel really confident wearing it. I have not worn the other wig as yet. So thank you for your wonderful service. I wish you all the best. Yours Diana

I wear the Emotion human hair. I style it as the picture on their website and have gotten many compliments. Would definitely purchase from Wigs by Haircreations again, great customer service as well when calling with questions.

Over the last several years I have purchase wigs from Hair Creations which have been better than my original hair. Also I have had a change of style made to the wigs carried out by Glenn whom I found delightful to deal with and an artist in his proffesion. There was no charge for the style change which was very pleasing. Annie King

I had a appointment with Glenn, a hair wig consultant. He conducted himself in a professional manner and made me feel at ease. He listened to needs and wants in a selection of amazing wigs at their disposal. He offered me a selection of a dark and a blonde wig and helped me make a decision that worked for my situation.

I would very much recommend Wigs by Haircreations Auckland, especially Cece..... her service, communication and kindness while helping me with my new wig. She was excellent. I have had several wigs from the Auckland branch, and would recommend 💯

I bought my first wig from Bev and I am blown away with how beautiful it is. After an online consult she created my wig based on my inspiration photos. The wig arrived extremely quickly and it is the most beautiful one I have ever owned. The hair quality is super luxurious and the colour work is incredible. My wig is even better than I imagined. I will definitely be a repeat customer 💕

I came in with a friend and work colleague today as she needed a wig after starting chemotherapy and we had Cece at the Newton shop in Auckland and Cece was so kind and caring and made the whole experience for Jocelyn so easy and we both came away feeling so good about the experience. Thank you.

I’m so glad I came across this website! I wasn’t looking forward to going all the way into the city, from South Auckland, and go thru fitting numerous wigs! This website, sends the consultant to you. You can choose your new look, in the comfort of your own home. Simone was absolutely beautiful! She made it so easy. I emailed her a few hair pieces and she brought it all and together, we chose my new look. Brilliant. I highly recommend Simone.
