There’s a myth surrounding hair loss and hair replacement. People often recoil in horror at both terms because they think either a) it’s a very painful, surgical procedure which costs thousands of pounds, b) they remember an elderly family member who used to wear a noticeable hair-piece or c) they’ve had an uncomfortable experience of wearing an ill-fitting wig at some point in their lives.

WHAT IS A HAIR REPLACEMENT SYSTEM?
A hair system is a hair prostheses which is attached discreetly, firmly and comfortably to the head. Each system consists of the base which holds the hair and which fits perfectly onto the head. The base is primarily made from either lace, mesh, polymers or a combination.
WHAT IS THE HAIR MADE OF?
The best hairpieces are custom-made out of excellent-quality human hair matched to the hair of the client. This matching includes the color, texture, nature of curl or wave, or straightness, as well as hair density. Most expensive and mid-priced hairpieces are made from European hair that once grew naturally in a wide variety of colors, textures, densities, and levels of curl, wave, or straightness. The least expensive hairpieces are made from dark, straight Asian hair that has been dyed or bleached. It is vital that hair systems are cut-in to perfection to ensure the hair looks natural.
HOW IS THE HAIR SYSTEM ATTACHED?
Hairpieces that are semi-permanently attached are not designed to be removed except by a hair technician or stylist, usually once every six weeks. They are usually attached with adhesives.
With temporary adhesive-attached systems double-sided tape is used to attach the hairpiece. This is an easy kind of attachment, and you can remove it any time you want and then reattach it.
Systems can also be attached with clips, where metal clips are securely attached to the underside of the systems and fasten to your own hair that’s either under or adjacent. These are secure but very easy to remove, just like tape attachment.
