Hair Replacement

Nonsurgical hair replacement can be a wonderful option for those who suffer from significant hair loss and would like to regain the appearance of having a full head of hair without surgery.

While natural hairpieces are available, many hair loss consumers have little idea what to look for when purchasing a hairpiece. Unfortunately, the hair loss industry includes some companies that may take advantage of hair loss sufferers. Research conducted by the American Hair Loss Association estimates that more than 70% of nonsurgical hair loss consumers are unhappy with the quality, service, and price provided by their hair replacement salons.
