What you will find here, that is so different from anywhere else, is passion for the business, caring for each my clients like friends, and complete privacy and confidentiality.

I am a true perfectionist and take great pride in each of my designs and systems.  I realize each person’s problem is unique, and requires a personalized solution. My ultimate goal is to make you look and feel as if you have a full head of your own hair that requires virtually no maintenance

No, although we encourage clients to use hair products to achieve that salon look.  But, they are not essential in achieving a natural look.

Yes, within reason, of course.  Just bring a picture of the desired style with you on the day of your free consultation and we will ensure your system is designed to give you the look and feel you are hoping for.  However, we always emphasize the importance if your hair looking natural and age appropriate.

You will need to make an appointment every 4-6 weeks so that your system can be removed, cleaned, and then re-adhered.  At that time, your existing hair will be washed, conditioned, and trimmed so it blends perfectly with your hair replacement system.  The entire service takes about 1 hour.

Yes we can design a system of any size to integrate with your existing hair and just improve your existing hairline.  The transformation is undetectable and absolutely amazing.

No, we will design your system and integrate it invisibly into your existing hair to a totally natural look and feel.

The exact cause of hair loss is still not fully understood, but it’s usually related to one or more of; (1) Family history (heredity), (2) Hormonal changes, (3) Medications and/or (4) Medical conditions.  The most common cause of baldness and hair thinning in men is Alopecia (male pattern baldness).  To learn more about this, Click Here.

Our production schedules vary depending upon base used and density, volume, special knotting, various wave or curl patterns, and long hair length of our hair systems. Considering these, we should have your system complete and ready to cut in in 6-8 weeks. When we are finished, your new system will match your own hair, color, and texture perfectly and look like it is your own growing hair.

For those that just can’t wait, and would be satisfied with high quality system that is not totally custom, we do offer “Stock” hair replacement systems. Those are available in just a few weeks and can be selected from a host of different color and hair texture and density options.

A lot of men are concerned about what others will think if they have their replaced.  They wonder how other people might react to a change in appearance.  Certainly, coming in one day with a full head of hair is obvious.  But, if you are concerned about the attention, we have the ability to replace your hair gradually over time, decreasing the noticeable “before and after” transformation to others.

However, it is our experience; most people that may know you have a hair system will be impressed and will likely treat you differently. You are, after all, a new person.

Completely undetectable is a subjective term.  One can always argue that upon close enough inspection anything non-natural can be detected.  What is possible is a Virtually Undetectable Hair Replacement System.  These are so much like your natural hair that the average person will not have a clue it’s not real, even if they are up close and touching it.

The most natural technology available is a very thin polymer material with hair injected through it.  This product is clear, and when placed on the scalp, the system virtually disappears and only the scalp is visible.  Since hair is injected into the polymer base it appears as if hair is growing directly from the scalp.  This system is also so thin it is almost impossible to detect from touch.

French lace is also virtually undetectable, but has a slightly more prominent difference than the thin polymer base.   When you come in for your free consultation, we will show you both systems and explain the pros and cons of each.

  • Frequent Shampooing causes hair loss.
  • Wearing hats and wigs can cause hair thinning.
  • Hair coloring and permanents cause hair loss.
  • Shaving you hair will make it grow back thicker.
  • 100 strokes of a hairbrush will make your hair healthier.

NONE OF THE ABOVE IS TRUE

Yes!  Actually, we often get calls from some of our competitors’ clients every week for various reasons.  We are trained in every method of hair attachment and are familiar with all types of hair systems.

We welcome you in for a complementary visit and meet our friendly and caring team of hair replacement salon.  Even if you have decided to buy your hair system on the internet from a discount broker, we can cut, attach and style it for you.  We cannot offer our guarantee for any systems we do not manufacture, and typical charges depend on length and size of system.

Absolutely!  In fact, it’s essential.  Every good custom hair replacement system should look, feel and be just as manageable as your natural hair.  Caring for your hair system is not much different than caring for your own hair.  Our systems are made with the the highest quality 100% human hair.  After we fit and cut in your system, we will provide on-going tips and service on how to keep your hair looking and feeling its best.

Hair replacement is a non-surgical means of providing hair. This is done by using hair systems to cover the area of thinning and utilizing as much of your natural hair as possible.

Hair restoration is a surgical method of replacing hair. This is done by transplanting hair from the back of the head to the area of thinning.

This question is more difficult to answer. Many factors play into the durability and life span of custom hair replacement systems. The time you spend maintaining your hair piece, the amount of styling gels and sprays you use and the type of base material are all factors that should be considered. Generally, a hair replacement system depending on its base design should last between 3-12 months before they need to be repaired or replaced. Their life expectancy is dependent upon a number of factors like how well they are taken care of and how often you have them serviced.
