Hair loss may be the result of diseases, hormonal changes or may be caused by critical illness and the subsequent treatment. A lot of our identity lies in our hair, and when women suffer from serious disease, and the treatment causes them to lose their hair, they fight not only to survive, but also to maintain a feeling of normality, femininity and dignity.
Christine Headwear is a range of Danish designed headwear products made to provide women with a real choice in hair coverings, and the opportunity to feel beautiful during a difficult time.
Christine Headwear was founded in 2003 by Tine Fuglsang when she discovered how difficult it was for women, who suffer from hair loss, to find soft, comfortable and fashionable alternatives to wigs and old-fashioned scarves. Tine’s great-grandmother has suffered from breast cancer. She was called Christine, and it was an easy choice for Tine to name the company after her beloved relative. In 2012, Christine Headwear was sold to The Headwear Company, and today the company is run by Morten Thygesen.
At Christine Headwear, we have many years of experience within our field, and represented in 55 countries, we understand what hair loss can do to a person’s self-esteem. Our goal is to help women, and men, feel like themselves again by offering high-quality headwear for any occasion and need.
It is important to us that women find inspiration in our products and that they feel comfortable, fashionable and confident when wearing them. Our modern headwear designs focus on versatility, trends and fitting. All Christine Headwear hair covering styles are tailored to provide volume and fullness to a head without hair and to create a secure and comfortable fit as well as a graceful silhouette.
Little or no hair exposes the scalp, making it vulnerable to weather conditions and the harmful radiation from the sun. With two annual collections, spring/summer and autumn/winter, we are able to follow changing trends and give women the opportunity to find the perfect headwear to fit any wardrobe all year round. Our large range of headwear styles includes fitted scarves, hats, turbans, sleep caps, headbands, knitwear and sun wear.
All our hair covering products are made from natural materials such as bamboo viscose, wool and cotton, because a very sensitive scalp without hair needs special and comfortable protection. These natural fibres ensure that all our products are breathable and moisture absorbent.
All our products are made without irritating seams, as seams are hidden under a soft bamboo lining. Our wig liners are completely seamless for extra comfort. Furthermore, all Christine Headwear products are CE Labelled, meaning that they are classified as medical devices according to EU Directive (93/42/EEC) concerning medical devices.
