What type of client should consider non-surgical hair replacement?

“Non-surgical hair-replacement systems are ideal for men and women experiencing partial to total hair loss,” says Ciomara Cardona, product development manager for HairUWear, parent company of American Hairlines.

“Unlike alternate options such as surgery, topicals and lasers, nonsurgical hair replacement offers instant gratification and is best suited to clients looking for an immediate solution," Cardona says. "For the client who is always on-the-go and needs a low-maintenance solution that can keep up with their busy lifestyle, non-surgical hair replacement is the answer. In addition, clients who like to change their look often can do so during their regular service appointment—a benefit not available with alternate options. American Hairlines has a selection of systems and offers customized solutions tailored specifically to your client’s requirements.”

What technology exists for customized hair pieces?

“For many people, the negative impact of hair loss originates from the culture that surrounds us,” says Flora Fuentes, U.S. director, Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories. “Full, thick hair is associated with the highest standards of beauty, health and vitality. Ultimately, people associate their hair appearance and condition to overall well-being.

"Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories is the creator of the CNC 3D hair and scalp prosthesis. With this advanced hair-replacement technology, hair professionals can now design a completely customized hair system that is specific to the client’s needs. Hair professionals have full artistic freedom with providing their clients a beautiful head of hair that can be worn in any style and have a positive impact on their self-esteem by helping them live their life without compromise.”

Which clients are good candidates for wigs or hair pieces?

“Women experiencing any type of hair loss can find an instant, natural-looking solution with a wig or hair piece from the Raquel Welch Collection,” says Laurence Bate, VP of design and production for HairUWear, parent company of Raquel Welch.

“From faux fringe to conceal hair loss at the temples and hairline, to top-of-head hair pieces and full wigs, every style is carefully designed to look realistic, feel comfortable and secure, and of course have all the flair and style that today’s fashion-conscious clientele demand," Bate says. "The Raquel Welch Collection has a wide selection of beautiful colors and styles made with heat-friendly synthetic fiber, 100% human hair or luxurious remy human hair to suit any budget, preference or lifestyle.”
