LAUREL, Md. (WJLA) - Armed with their hair dryers, scissors and products, a group of cosmetology students at Laurel High School are honing their skills and helping local breast cancer patients.
Crystal Hughes, the founder of Wig Capitol Foundation, collects wigs through donations and brings them to the school to be refurbished.
“I wear wigs all the time, we all do and just toss our wigs in the closet or our wig drawer and that's it,” Hughes says. “Those wigs can be re-used and re-worn.”
The students sterilize and style them and Hughes gives their creations to local hospitals for women who have lost their hair due to breast cancer treatment.
So far, the students have helped fix up more than 3,000 wigs.
“Without their help, I wouldn't be able to do it on a large scale like I'm doing now,” Hughes says.
