A hair system is created using human hair hand-woven onto a particular base of material such as lace. The base is then adhered to the individual’s head with the preferred method of attachment (tape or adhesive), and cut and blended to make it undetectable.
Today’s hair systems are so technologically and artistically advanced, they are now virtually undetectable. Manufacturers can even use a base material similar to what is in a contact lens that is so light and breathable it looks as if hair is growing right out of your scalp. Hair systems are now made from the finest quality material, which mimics your own hair and hair direction. Our stylists then create a perfect blend and cut which allows the system to look like it is your own hair.
Modern hair systems are made to be light and comfortable. The days of itchy systems are long gone. A properly fitted, well-ventilated cap will ensure that you hardly notice the hair on your head.
Looking after a hair system is no more difficult than looking after your own hair. The rules are virtually the same, the only difference is you need to take a little extra care with your system and ensure you have been shown how to properly maintain it by your stylist.
Providing the hair system is kept clean and is well maintained then it will not damage your scalp or existing hair. In fact, the system will offer a level of protection against the sun and will protect sensitive scalps from the elements.
All of our bespoke hair systems can be designed and created based on your own preferences, such as hair styles, highlights, colours or densities.
They both work extremely well, and it really depends on the client’s choice. Things to consider are, how oily is your scalp and of course your lifestyle. Our tapes and adhesive are medical grade and perform successfully.
Our hair systems will not only take dye but the colour will take to the system, 1 to 3 times faster than natural growing hair.
Your hair system will probably have a temperature limit but providing you take care and keep within this limit you can style your hair with heated appliances in the same way you would with real hair.
You can come back to the hair clinic between every 3-4 weeks to have the system taken off, the glue taken off, the new hair that’s grown underneath re-shaved and then have the hair system re-applied.
What tends to happen is the hair growing out on the widest part of the head. So you have the system that obviously doesn’t grow and this hair grows underneath it. This is the part that you need to have cut regularly. And that is around every 3 to 4 weeks.
You can wear it constantly, it’s no problem at all. They’re versatile systems.
The bond lasts up to four weeks depending on your lifestyle and they are really easily maintained.
Generally speaking, yes it is, hair systems can conceal receding hairlines very well. It is very important that our hair pieces are firmly attached. This requires a certain surface area, which is why our hair systems cover not only the receding hairline, but the entire front and maybe also the top of the head. For this reason, we analyse our customers’ individual hair situation and suggest an appropriate solution.
We generally say that you should get a minimum of 3-6 months out of your hair system and can last anywhere up to 1 year. It is advisable to replace your hair system at least 2 or 3 times a year.
If you’re adventurous and want to switch colours or hairstyles, you can certainly work with the stylist to create different hair systems.
Everyone should want their hair system to be as realistic and as natural as possible. If that includes shortening your hairstyle or showing a blend of grey hair, your stylist will strive to make your hair system as age appropriate as you desire, matching it to your changing facial shape, hair colour, hair texture and skin tone. For men, lessening the amount of hair to match any overall thinning or pattern baldness around the hair system may also be appropriate as you age.
Whatever you do with your normal hair you can do with your hair system too. You can shower, swim, drive a convertible or go sky diving, your hair won’t hold you back.
You can have almost any hairstyle you want. You can wear your hair long or short, comb it back or wear it spiky. On our website & social media pages you can find a range of photos and videos of different hairstyles. If you have a specific hairstyle in mind, why not get in touch and make a free of charge consultation.
All the materials we use conform to surgical standards and have been used by medical professionals for years without causing any allergic reactions. Our materials have also been dermatologically tested and proven to be completely safe. You would be patch tested before.
Yes. The hair system is only removed during your next appointment at the clinic, just before you get your new hair system. You can shower in it, exercise in it, do everything as you normally would.
Yes, you can maintain your hair system yourself. Our service includes training, during which we show you the individual steps. Our Expert System comprises all products that you need to clean and maintain your hair system and your scalp. If you have any questions, our support team will assist you.
Yes, the hair system stays in place when going swimming or diving if a water-resistant adhesive is used. You can go swimming in the sea as well as in a swimming pool if the hair piece is attached appropriately. When being outdoors, it is important to protect your hair replacement from UV damage – e.g. by means of hair protector.
Our hair systems stand up to situations that make you sweat. To ensure that your hair system meets all your requirements, we discuss aspects like your profession and lifestyle during the consultation. If you perspire a lot, you need breathable materials, a more robust base is preferable if your daily routine is very demanding. We suggest solutions to our customers which suit them and their life.
