Will my own hair be damaged?
This question is what my clients ask all the time ,your hair health is very important to me.
The simple answer is my hair loss system will be different for each client. It will suit certain clients better than others. All clients should seek advice of a dermatologist or trichologist first to diagnose your hair loss condition . I will fit as tension free as I can. For example on very fine hair finer toppers & wefts will be used. I will check your scalp & hair health at each appointment.
Can the system be colour matched to my own hair?
Yes I can make a replica of your hair colour . I love colouring the systems and have coloured hair for the last 20 years. I can do any colour that you want !
How realistic do the partings look and how natural will my hair line look?
Depending on the hair pieces chosen realistic partings can be achieved. Hair lines are covered by hair piece and the wefts normally. Fringes are always recommended for more discretion and a natural look.
