Technology and innovation has come a long way since I started my business. So too has people’s willingness to discuss hair loss and thinning hair.
There is a range of options and styles available and there are a host of coverage solutions.
The most common concern for individuals is whether the wig or hairpiece will be noticeable. It is not that we feel ashamed of wearing a cosmetic device, it is because we like to have an image of perfection and we don’t like advertising our differences and shortcomings. This is a part we prefer, in most cases, to keep private.
So finding the right hairpiece or wig is vital. In store there are options of hair type, synthetic, heat defiant synthetic, European human hair, remy human hair or other hair types.
Hairpieces are great and if you buy a good quality hairpiece it will work like a charm without ever revealing your secret. It does not need to be a human hair hairpiece, it can be synthetic. Synthetic options will have a much wider choice of hair colour and will be less temperamental than the human hair one. The best is that it is also more affordable. The human hair one, in my experience, is much like your own hair. It will have good and bad days. That said, I mostly wear a human hair hairpiece as I kinda like the temperament of my own little prosthetic. I have a synthetic one too, but I use it mainly as a back-up - for those temperamental days :-)
With all things it will need to fit in with your preferences and priorities. Wigs are a bit easier as you can essentially chose any colour you desire without worrying about matching your existing colour. However, most people tend to stick to their natural colour at first and eventually venture into a world of highlights and lowlights and differing shapes and styles.
In everything my philosophy is to buy quality. Please don’t buy a cheap alternative unless you just want the occasional party wig. Cheap wigs and hairpieces look cheap and will fool no one. In addition, you do not want an itchy sweaty mess on your head. This will just lead to a box in the wardrobe reminding you of a bad wig experience.
There are a lot of options in terms of fixing and securing the wig or hairpiece. You will rarely need to glue a wig to your head. In almost all cases, the wig can be securely fastened by adjusting the straps or using clips or toupee tape. You do not need to fix it with strong adhesives. You just want it to stay in place.
The same with hairpieces for women. Most women will have enough remaining hair to attach the system to. This is what is also done when you chose to have a system made for you bespokely. They will either use silver clips to clamp to your own hair, a mesh to weave your hair through or will glue the system to your scalp. In all cases they will tell you that you will need to come back every 6 weeks to realign and style.
Please do not be fooled by this. You need not do this.
If you use any of these methods you will not be able to remove the system yourself and will have to wash your hair selectively. It will also, most likely, be painful to wear, dry and sleep in. Not to mention when it is fitted it is pulled tight and when it is removed the removal process can be very painful.
You need not have something made bespokely to fit you well. You can have something natural looking that is possible to remove without calling a professional team and paying them by the hour.
And just because this system is fixed with a weave or glue or steel clips does not mean it will stay in place. It will move every day and may move in such a way that every one can see it is a hairpiece or wig. You then have to wait to get it fixed as most of the time there won’t be some one to help readjust it immediately. This has been my own experience.
We offer a bespoke hair service but it is entirely removable and flexible. It is also not necessary to buy a bespoke system. In 99% of cases you can buy an off the shelf one that will do the trick.
If you have enough hair to use steel clips or a weave you have enough hair to use snap clips to fix the hair system. Please speak to us for more information and before you commit to a 6 weekly costly refit.
We only give honest open feedback and do not charge you for the appointment service. It is completely free with no obligation. This is also offered online via email chats. So feel free to send photos and ask questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
