Wigs, handmade by Italian-Chilean hair stylist Marcelo Avatte and his team, have helped children who have lost their hair during cancer treatments regain their self-esteem and confidence. Renowned for making customized wigs, Avatte has donated more than 300 wigs since 2009 and says he was motivated to begin the project by the pain he felt when his own son lost his hair during chemotherapy.

One company that has found success in the wig industry can be found deep in the Ubud jungles of Bali. Sari Rambut, a well-respected producer of theatrical and film wigs, was founded by Orlando Bassi along with his Balinese Business partner Nengah. They credit the company’s success to the extraordinary skill and hand-eye coordination of the Balinese staff, writes Getty Photographer Putu Sayoga.
