I design comfortable, fashionable head coverings for women with or without hair!

I started losing my hair in high school at the age of 16, and went through my young adulthood feeling insecure and frustrated, trying desperately to cover up my increasingly bare scalp.

I worked in the hair replacement field for several years, consulting with women undergoing Chemotherapy treatments. When our customers came in to order their hair pieces, I was struck by how many of them wore ill-fitting baseball caps, complete with the opening at the back, which did nothing to camouflage their bare scalps. My customers taught me how important it is to a Cancer patient's self esteem to not just look good, but feel comfortable and secure as well. I decided to find head coverings for them that would be a vast improvement over baseball caps, and I wanted something pretty that my customers would want to wear.

Necessity is the mother of invention, and when I could not find what I wanted, I was inspired to design my own line. My head coverings and accessories are far more than just a coverup. They enhance a woman's appearance, and help her feel pretty again.

It is a joy to have a shop on Etsy, and to get lovely comments about the items I offer from new customers as well as my regular customers.

I feel blessed!

I've made two wildly amateurish videos to demonstrate tying and accessorizing a few of my head coverings:

Hi Linda,
My order arrived yesterday. I mastered the black cap with accessories and like it!

I wore the basic pink cap to work. I'm going to have to practice with the extra scarves. The cap itself is comfortable. I'm pleased!

I work a 12-hour shift and wear a headset. The no-fuss head covering is a bonus. The material is comfortable and I'm not conscious of it.

Before your delivery, I wore a cheap cotton bandana for a six-hour shift. It was torture! My head itched and the material kept shifting. I was self-conscious and uncomfortable.

I am so glad I splurged! I'll practice with the other caps and fancier looks on my days off. I think the variety will be fun.

I do appreciate your quick and friendly service as well as thoughtful products.

Thank you!

Tencel Headscarf:

I never had so much confidence to wear something else except my wig. The material is absolutely amazing! Plus, Linda is a sweetheart and she keeps in contact to make sure you have received your purchase. I will definitely buy more in the future!!

Tencel Headscarf:

I bought this item for a friend who is going through chemo. She says that it is very soft and comfortable to wear and it looks great! The vendor was very helpful in arranging postage to Canada. The package was received very quickly. Great vendor!


Love this. My favorite head cover above all others. Shipping to Canada was only a few days.

Tencel headscarf w/ Accent Sash:

So happy with this lovely head scarf! Thank you so much for making these available. These pretty scarves make hair loss a lot less devastating !

Yoga Hair Wrap:

High quality! I love it. Linda, you're amazing! Thank you.


Love this. My favorite head cover above all others. Shipping to Canada was only a few days.

Chiffon Shawl Wrap:

I love this scarf, it has good texture so it won't move or come untied. It is a large size and will accomodate nearly any kind of wrapping or tying. It has lovely jewel tones and a really nice floral design. The shipping was ultra prompt, and the scarf was well-packed. A lot of care went into this product and it is very much appreciated. I watched the two YouTube videos and I applaud the shopowner's efforts to provide comfort and beauty to those dealing with hair loss. This was a five star purchasing experience plus! Thanks!

Welcome to Nini's Niche!

I am a girly girl who loves all things feminine, soft, comfortable and stylish! My Headwrap collection, which includes headwraps, sleep caps, slouch hats, soft Tencel headscarves and no-tie headscarves was created out of necessity, but designed with a sense of fashion. I believe head coverings should do more than just 'cover up' - they should be a flattering enhancement to a woman's appearance. I create chiffon accent scarves, headbands, sashes, Yoga Wraps and other accessories to go with my head coverings, because who doesn't love a beautifully coordinated look?

When gift wrap is requested, I wrap orders with pretty sage green printed kraft paper and a sage green satin ribbon, and can add a personal note from the buyer.

I use the US Postal Service for shipping and send most items via First Class Mail unless the items weigh more than 13 oz, in which case the order is sent Priority Mail. If a customer prefers Priority Mail regardless of the weight, they can contact me and I will create a special listing to include the increased cost of mailing. First Class Shipping & Handling within the U. S. is $3.00 for first item, $1.00 for each additional item.

If a package is to be mailed outside the U. S., I can advise the purchaser of the cost to ship their item(s) internationally, fill out customs forms and enter the price of each item I am mailing. Once a buyer wishes to purchase an item to be mailed outside the U. S., I will add that country and the correct international shipping cost as an option on that particular item or items. I have no control over, nor am I responsible for, whatever customs duties may be incurred by the recipient as a result of the customs information that is required in order to mail the package. Also, I have no control over how long it may take for you to receive an order which is being mailed outside the U. S., as International shipping can take 4 to 6 weeks or longer.
