Caroline and Kate

Caroline was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in November 2008 and underwent a double mastectomy followed by chemotherapy & radiation treatment during most of 2009.

It was during this time when she lost her own hair that she realised how traumatic this can be and that there was very little choice available in hats & headwear other than a wig.

So in 2010 at the end of her treatment Caroline together with her friend Kate started making a range of quality stylish headwear for women, children and men experiencing hair loss either through alopecia, chemo or other medical reasons.They particularly wanted their headwear to be available to customers living outside the main cities where often the option to purchase headwear is limited thus the website HeadHigh was created to cater for all.

Our customers are now NZ wide with some repeat overseas orders so we hope we have accomplished our mission to provide a stylish interesting range of headwear, easily accessible online or by appointment & most of all affordable.

Caroline's experience with hairloss is invaluable when it comes to creating headwear as she understands the need for comfort & security in headwear but also have some fun funky designs for those days when you want to break out and shine! Combined with Kates sewing & designing skills using soft fabrics as we know heads can get sensitive with chemo, we hope we have produced a range of styles to suit many tastes. We have also created height within some of our hat styles if you don’t want the garment to fit too snugly.

We offer a few evening designs for those nights when you want to feel beautiful and elegant or have a work function plus we also offer a service to try our best to colour match a specific outfit for that special occasion.

Head High is a Ministry of Health approved provider of headwear for hairloss therefore you can use your hairloss entitlement ($408.88 for adult temporary hairloss)to purchase, but please contact us first so we can get the paperwork in order & make the process as simple as possible for you.

We love what we do and the people we meet and hope we can provide you with an interesting variety of headwear during a difficult time.

As Kate also has family experience with breast cancer & because we are both passionate about what we are do, we donate $1 from each sale to NZ Cancer Society or Leukaemia and Blood NZ to help find a cure.

We hope our website provides you with what was our dream, to give you access to an extensive range of headwear from caps,beanies, twist&ties, snug caps and more that you can purchase with ease from anywhere in the world.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments or to make an appointment to view our headwear. If you live in New Zealand, postage is $4.50 by standard NZ Post or for customers outside of NZ our overseas postage is $15 to your designated country.

Our headwear is great as a gift (we also do gift vouchers) if you have friends or family going through chemo as it is practical, affordable & so very comfortable. All are gift wrapped when posted & we are more than happy to assist you when purchasing for a friend or relative if necessary.


Happy viewing and we hope we can make this experience as pleasant and carefree as possible for you.
