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.
