Hey folks, I get a lot of people wondering why it can be so inexpensive ordering their hair replacement pieces online. There are a few things to consider.
Is the quality as good as when I order from a hair replacement salon? Here is my answer in a nutshell….. There is a reason I believe in “You get what you pay for.”
It’s not so much about the quality of the hair. It’s really about knowing what to order. What density do you need? Where on the head should you be taking your hair samples from? Should you be ordering all lace, thin skin, etc? How do you know what type of attachment is best for your particular lifestyle?
All of these questions can be answered by a stylist who has spent years in the industry, perfecting their craft.
Salon owners like myself, who love what they do and have probably seen every type of hair loss over the years and know how to make these decisions.
I’ve worked with people who have made the choice to buy online. For instance, I had a client come to me who had already purchased 6 hair replacement system online. That’s a total cost of roughly $2400. None of them matched his hair, nor did they fit the thinning area. He didn’t need a top of the head system in the first place. He needed a custom piece to cover the area at the back of his head that was severely scarred by taking donor hair for 2 transplant surgeries.
Now would that have happened if he had come to me first? No.
I would have consulted with him about his lifestyle, what type of outcome he was looking for and then I would have made a custom template of the area. I would have known exactly where to take hair samples form to get an exact match.
In the end he would have spent about half the amount of what he had already spent online. He would also have a guarantee of getting exactly what he needed. He would have someone in his corner who he can rely on to answer his questions honestly and be able to speak to face to face. To me, that’s got tremendous value!
Am I saying that there is no way someone can’t go online and get what might work for them? No, I’m saying your chances are exponentially increased by going to a professional!
That’s my 2 cents.
