General Questions

Will my wig or hair replacement be comfortable?

It is important to us that you look right and also feel comfortable. Modern hair pieces are designed to feel light and comfortable. We experiment with a variety of hair replacement units until we find the right one for you. A modern, state-of-the-art unit should allow you to forget it’s there.

Will it look natural?

Yes. We work hard to help you select a style and shade to suit you perfectly and integrate you back into your normal lifestyle. Modern hair and modacrylic fibre types are more convincing than ever.

How secure are hair pieces and wigs?

Very secure. Partial hair pieces are secured in a number of ways: by semi-permanent bonding to your own hair; by using specialised small clips or by hypoallergenic tape. A full wig such as a Freedom Wig fits with vacuum to the scalp and is designed not to come off in any circumstances. Ready-to-wear wigs can be customised to fit and some of our wigs have patented non-slip bases that provide extra security.

Should I tell my friends and family?

This is a personal decision but many of our clients tell us they feel much more comfortable when they are open with their friends and family - and they don’t have to tell those little white lies…

How do I maintain my hairpiece or wig?

You will be given full instructions when you see us. It’s quite simple and we supply written details so you don’t forget. We also sell the specialist shampoos and conditioners etc., you may need.

Do you have a maintenance scheme for hairpieces and wigs?

Yes, we have a full comprehensive repair and maintenance service.

Can the weather affect my hairpiece?

Yes. Just like growing hair, hair pieces and wigs can be adversely affected by extreme weather and conditions. Use of the proper haircare products, which we offer, will minimise damage.

Human hair vs Cyberhair® - which is best?

Only a face-to-face consultation can provide the answer that’s right for you. Call our Edinburgh studio to make an appointment.

 

Men's Hair Replacement Questions

How long can I have my hair system on for?

Four weeks on average - although some wearers return after three to five weeks. Durability also varies according to your type of skin and how active you are. We do recommend regular maintenance which is done either in our salon or at home (standard hairdressing charges apply).

Would it be neccessary to remove all my hair to wear a hair system?

This depends on the choice of system. For continuous wear, it is preferable to remove a certain amount of hair in the thinning area so that the replacement is properly integrated with your remaining hair.

How long does it take for a hair system to be made?

It can be made for you in approximately 6 weeks. However, we sometimes prefer to undertake an ‘approval check’ where the base and colours which are returned from the factory are approved by you before the process begins. This action is often useful where there are difficult colours to match etc. If an approval check takes place, then a hair system is normally complete in 10 - 12 weeks.

What is the lifespan of a hair system?

If your choice is Cyberhair®, you should expect 18 - 24 months. Expect human hair to last around 9 - 12 months.

Does a hair system look natural?

If it is designed properly and accounts for a person’s age (e.g. age appropriate hair density), colouring and lifestyle, then a hair replacement should just look like a real head of hair. We also believe in educating and informing each wearer to get the best out of a hair replacement system. Wearers often find the most satisfying systems mirror their favourite or latest style.
