You start to not feel like yourself when you lose your hair. You start to have confidence issues and it really can spiral out of control. When you don’t look good, you don’t feel good and your confidence level drops. It affects everything. – Martino Cartier, Celebrity Hair Stylist

The fight to battle hair loss extends far beyond Capillus's customers, products & physician partnerships. Outside of the company's daily work, Curallux is proud to be an official sponsor of Wigs & Wishes powered by the non-profit organization Friends Are By Your Side.

Established in 2011, the organization was founded by celebrity hairstylist, Home Shopping Network star, and Capillus laser cap user: Martino Cartier. Gathering a network of professionals within the hair and beauty industries, Wigs & Wishes supports ‘women battling cancer with wigs at no cost’ and ‘grants wishes to children battling childhood cancer.’

Losing hair is not simply a cosmetic loss, it can also trigger mental distress and lasting psychological damage affecting one’s confidence and self-esteem. Thus, Wigs & Wishes made a ‘pledge to restore dignity to women who lost their hair to chemotherapy.’

Wigs & Wishes hosted their 7th annual grand gala event on October 27th at the stunning venue of Lucien’s Manor in New Jersey to help raise funds for the charity.

The host with the most for the night was none other than TV personality & musical star Paula Abdul, widely known for her appearances as a judge on American Idol. On the night, guests attended an ‘extravagant cocktail hour, with delicious hors d' oeuvres, live entertainment, an exceptional auction, and a highly anticipated after party.’ Multiple wigs & wishes were granted for the lucky stars of the night. JJ Weeks Band also made a special live performance of their Billboard Top 10 track, "Let Them See You."

Curallux's CEO, Carlos Piña, and COO, Maria Piña, were also in attendance for the fundraiser.
