Why Custom Hand-Made Hair Pieces Are Your Perfect Hair Loss Solution


Here at The Hair Confidante, we know how much hair loss can affect your confidence and self-esteem, and that’s why we work so hard to provide the best hair loss solutions to our clients. We want you to walk tall and feel like your confident self again, and you can do that with one of our beautiful custom hand-made hair pieces.


What are custom hand-made hair pieces?


Our custom hand-made hair pieces are usually made from a fine lace material that is transparent and fits on to the head like a second skin. It has small holes that the hair is knotted on to, and two strands of hair are usually fitted through each hole (except for around the hairline, where the hair is usually finer, so one strand of hair is fitted through each hole).


Our custom hand-made hair pieces can be anything from a full or half wig that is made from a mould of your head, to a front piece that mimics a natural hairline for people who have hair loss due to conditions like frontal fibrosing Alopecia. We also make small patches for clients who have Alopecia Areata hair loss they want to cover up. Lace pieces can be made in pretty much any shape or form.


Will my custom-made hair piece look natural and suit my lifestyle?


All custom hair pieces are colour matched to your hair and where applicable, are cut and styled into your preferred hairstyle. If you have a busy or active lifestyle, there’s no need to worry about your hair piece being a barrier to you doing the things you love. There are adjustments you may need to make whilst wearing a hair piece whether permanent or temporary but these should not make a significant difference to your lifestyle.


And forget about the ‘people will know I’m wearing a wig’ feeling that makes you self-conscious, the great thing about our lace custom-made hair pieces is that they mimic a natural hairline and lie flat to the head.

Don’t be tempted by cheaper options


Emy now makes most of our bespoke hand-tied hair pieces personally, as does Cara, so it’s something we do regularly here at The Hair Confidante.


Bespoke hand-made hair pieces can take anything from a few days to weeks to make and it’s a very labour-intensive and intricate process. Every care has to be taken to make sure that the hairs are securely knotted and they don’t break, as they are so delicate.


When you are looking for hair loss solutions like hair pieces, don’t be tempted to go for cheaper options. A lot of them are made in China, where labour is far cheaper, and while you might think you are getting a good deal, they don’t tend to last as long.


In England, hair pieces tend to be made by traditional wig makers, and although you’ll pay more, the workmanship is much more skilled and the quality is far superior, so they last much longer. Also, you’ll only get a true custom fit if you have your hair piece made in England, as most wig base fittings need to be done in person so we can keep checking the fit of the mould.

If you’ve been following us on social media, you’ll remember the lovely Alison, our competition winner from last year who won a free hair integration system. Well since then, she’s never looked back and she recently got married in Vegas!

I spoke to her about how her struggles with hair loss and how her hair system has changed her life.


The Hair Confidante (THC): When did you start suffering from hair loss?

Alison (A): My hair started falling out 13 days after my first FEC-T chemotherapy treatment for triple negative breast cancer. My hair never grew back after treatment, which I was told is rare.


THC: What solutions did you try before trying a hair system?

A: I tried lotions that you had to apply to your scalp to encourage hair growth, and I also tried shampoo treatments and wigs.


THC: What made you choose The Hair Confidante?

A: I saw a post from a lady on the Younger Breast Cancer Network (YBCN) Facebook page, and I thought I’d take a look. I noticed Emy was running a competition to win a hair integration system so I entered and couldn’t believe it when I won 1st prize!


THC: How did the hair system change your life?

A: It gave me my confidence back. I no longer had to worry about my wig blowing off and I felt amazing as I’d never had long hair before. Emy made me feel at ease from the moment I went for my consultation. I was overwhelmed with her generosity and kindness, and I felt extremely lucky. It has completely changed my life.


THC: Was the system easy to manage?

A: Yes, it was easier to manage than I thought. It’s easy to wash, though drying and styling it takes me a bit of time, but I absolutely love it.


THC: What advice would you give to people suffering from hair loss?

A: Go and see Emy! She will advise you on which hair loss solution is the best one for you. I wouldn’t be without my hair system now. It’s worth all the sacrifices to have such wonderful hair!


THC: And finally, huge congratulations on getting married! How did having a new hair system make you feel on the day?

A: Thank you! I felt beautiful, confident, and so much more feminine than I would have done wearing a wig. I was able to style my hair and it just felt so natural. I can’t thank Emy enough!
