When your hair system arrives in the post, you will need to visit a stylist (or have a mobile stylist visit your home) to have it cut and blended into your own hair.
Cutting and styling a hair system is almost identical to cutting a natural head of hair, so any competent stylist will have the capability to cut your system.
Many of our client's employ the services of a local mobile stylist who would visit their home to cut and style their hair. Once the system hair has been cut, it will never require cutting again, unless of course you would like a style change.
After your initial system cut-in, you will still need to have your own hair at the sides and back trimmed regularly (approx. every 3-6 weeks depending upon how fast your hair grows). This will ensure the system hair always blends perfectly with your own hair. We recommend that you have your own hair trimmed whilst you are NOT wearing your system. This will prevent the system hair from being cut, which could adversely affect the blend.
When recruiting a stylist, essential tools required to cut a system effectively include; a straight feather razor or thinning shears. Please ensure the stylist you employ has one or preferably both of these tools before you use them.
If your stylist is not fitting your hair system, before the stylist begins to cut your hair, make sure you have bonded your system in the correct position using either tape or adhesive so it remains firmly in place whilst your hair is being cut.
If you have a specific style in mind, pictures speak louder than words. Show your stylist pictures of the hairstyle you like, which will help them visualise your desired hair cut before they begin.
If your stylist has no experience cutting hair systems, please print the instructions below and give them to the stylist before they begin.
Hair systems are designed as a blank canvas, with hair all one length and long enough to give you the creative flexibility to design a multitude of styles. To create a natural look, we recommend texturising and thinning the hair. To achieve this, take small partings and go over the entire system with a straight feather razor. You can also remove length during this process. We also recommend using thinning shears by holding the hair straight up and biting small chunks out of the hair. This is highly recommended at the sides, and back as explained in more detail below. The more de-bulking you do, the more natural the end result will be.
Please follow the guidelines below:
