FAQ

You can choose either go to a nearby barber shop let the hair stylist do it for you or you can do it at home, attach the hair system with either hairpiece tape or hairpiece adhesive depending on your preferences or climate.

Preparing: removing any oils and impurities from scalp and shaving the area on top of your head to create a smooth surface where will apply the toupee. Apply scalp protector to prevent skin irritation or damage

Applying the adhesive/tape: the glue or tape needs to be applied to your scalp, or on the hair system.

Positioning hair system: starting by gently sticking the tip of the system in the center of the forehead, slowly continue sticking the system in a gradual rolling back movement, making sure that it’s even on each sides, until it comes sit nicely all the way to the back, covering the whole shaved area. Then wait for styling.

1.Tape and glue adhesive are used to keep your toupee in the right place. Both of them offer long-lasting bonding, so you should use remover products to take it off and protect your scalp from damage.

2. Apply the remover to the areas where adhesives are. Let it stay for about 1-2 minutes and allow the bond to loosen. Then use your fingers to take the hairpiece and tape out off your scalp.

Base size : width x length
Toupees have sizes of 6x8, 7x8, 7x9, 8x10 and other sizes. So you need to confirm the length and width of your hair loss area.

First, find your front hairline.
Normally it is four fingers width away from your eyebrow.

Please place your 4 fingers onto your forehead and one side lines up with your eyebrow and the other side should be where your front hairline begins.

Second, confirm the length
Measure from your front hairline to where your hair loss stops at the back of your head.

Third, confirm the width
Measure the widest area of your hair loss area from one side to the other.

It mainly depends on which base you choose as different bases have different lifespans. Our ultra-thin skin base (0.02-0.04mm) has a lifespan of about 1-2 months while our mono base hair system can last up to a year with the correct care.

Besides this, the frequency you wear it and the way how you care and maintain your hair system also affects its lifespan.

Definitely YES. You can probably do anything with it. However, chlorine in pools can be harmful to the hair and make the hair drier. So, we recommend you deep condition the hair after you go swimming to help refresh the hair.

It will not damage your scalp or existing hair, provided the hair system is kept clean and maintained correctly. The hair system may actually provides protection to a certain extent against the sun and will protect sensitive scalps from the elements.

Maybe. It’s basically the trapped moisture that causes it. And it also depends on your skin type and how sensitive it is. If it bothers you, you'd better try a full lace hair system or at least a piece with a mesh inset so that any moisture can escape and shower water can get in to your scalp.

Full lace hair systems are the most breathable and perfect for a humid/hot climate and for those who have a very active lifestyle.

We also have combined bases of lace and skin which are also breathable and easy to apply and remove. We recommend you to remove the hair system and do a thorough clean once a week if you sweat a lot every day.

Before removing the lace hair system from the scalp, apply the spray adhesive remover to the area where the tape is and soak the tape for several minutes. Find the edge of the base in the back and lift it a little. Then use a towel to remove the tapes gently.

If bonded correctly, all our hair systems provide you with a secure attachment. If you care for your hair system properly (by removing, cleaning and re-bonding every 2-4 weeks), it will stay securely.

If you are looking for the strongest attachment, many of our clients have best experience with the full skin base. You need to apply liquid adhesive all over the scalp before wearing a full skin base hair system, which guarantees the most secure fit.

The total time of bonding depends on factors like the adhesive used, your skin type, the climate, and your lifestyle. We recommend you only remove it and get it cleaned every 1-2 weeks to extend the lifespan of the hair system. If you don’t sweat a lot and live in a dry climate, you can leave it on for longer time, about 3-4 weeks.

If you attach a lace hair system with liquid adhesive, we don’t recommend you to wear it for more than two weeks in a row. If you wear it for too long time, the adhesive will penetrate through the lace which makes it very difficult to clean.

If your hair is exposed to water frequently, you are strongly recommended to use water-proof tape or adhesives. It is proved that acrylic adhesives (Ultra Hold) or a Blue Liner Lace tape functions very well for secure attachment.

Yes, we do. We offer a convenient individual service to create the most suitable hair system based on your specific needs. You can choose the hair color, texture, density, base type/construction, base size, base shape and hair direction of your hair system to make a perfect match.

A hair system can and will look natural if it is properly designed and maintained. There are many variables that affect achieving a natural appearance when creating your hair system. Once you provide the information requested we’ll meet with you via phone or webcam to design a natural-looking hair system that meets your style requests and lifestyle needs. We’ll discuss base design, density, color, hairstyle, your options for attachment methods, and many other applicable variables before we start making your hair system.

Whether or not you shave the hair under your hair system depends on the attachment method you choose and how natural you want/need the system to look.

Your custom-made hair system is uniquely designed to fit your head, and is handmade with the most contemporary materials to achieve the best realism. If you choose to bond your system to your scalp using hair system tape or liquid adhesive, you will have to shave any existing hair where the hair system will be bonded to your head. Without shaving, your growing hair will prevent the system from adhering flat against your head, and therefore will not fit properly or look natural. Trying to bond with tape or liquid adhesive over existing hair can damage your growing hair, prevent a strong bond, and limit the type of base you can wear, among other issues. When adhesive breaks down, it will leave a gooey mess throughout your growing hair that is difficult to get out.

In most cases, shaving hair that is already very thin and sporadic makes the process of wearing a system much easier and more realistic-looking. However, if you don’t have extensive hair loss, or want to remove your hair system daily, you might consider a clip-on hair system.

We encourage you to use sulfate-free products. Sulfates strip the hair of oils and can cause dryness and tangling, as well as fade the hair color quicker.

Your growing hair is nourished with natural oils called sebum. If you are prone to oily hair, you need to wash it frequently. However, a hair system does not get regular exposure to oils, and in fact, the hair can tend to be dry because of the processing it goes through. For this reason, you only need to shampoo the hair system once or twice a week. Shampooing strips the hair of dirt and oils, so over-washing a hair system can actually damage the hair and cause it to dry out, break off, and tangle. That said, conditioning your system helps hydrate and strengthen the hair, keeping it healthy and softer longer. We recommend using a leave-in conditioner every day and using a rinse-out conditioner whenever you shampoo your hair.
