This is really something that should be done by someone who has experience with cutting and fitting wigs. There is a degree of skill involved in texturizing them properly -- not enough and it looks heavy and "wiggy" too much, and it is wispy mess of strings. It can literally take hours to do this properly. This hair will not just grow back if you don't get it right and human hair wigs are very expensive. You would be doing this client a big favor if you called around to wig suppliers in your area and got a recommendation for someone experienced in this area. Also, the American Cancer Society sponsors the "Look Good Feel Better" program for cancer patients and the local chapter may be able to give you some referrals.
