    How to Choose the Correct Hair System

    Thank you for browsing our website. Buying our products, we guarantee you top-quality products, a professional service and an international outlook from a company with nearly 20 years’ experience in the industry.  

    If you want to buy it goes without saying that you must know your products inside out. We provide a wide range of different products to match whatever you need.

    Another key piece of advice for ensuring that you get the correct hair system is that you do the following three things: properly measure your head size, choose the correct hair density and get a good color match. This should be the priority when dealing with your order.


    Read on to find out more detailed pieces of advice and techniques to ensure you are able to match all the needs.


    Getting the correct hair system


    The design process begins with the correct fitting of the base or foundation and correct color matching.

    We will discuss the different base models (base materials) and design in our next section but for now, let’s talk about how to get a correct fit.

    The measurements depend on two things: the type of attachment and the size and shape of the bald patch.


    Attaching with tape


    Attaching with tape requires a perfect fit in size and shape and blending with your own hair. If you choose to use tape to attach a hair system then the base size should be smaller than or exactly the same as the hair loss area and it cannot overlap your own hair. Otherwise, the tape or glue will stick to your own hair and cause problems (i.e. it will be painful when removing the hair system). That’s why we suggest making the base size as small as it possibly can be and utilisizing your existing hair as much as possible. This of course, requires the color to be matched perfectly as well. The only exception to this method would be if your own existing hair were too thin for it to blend well with the hair system.



    Bond or Graft


    For a total graft or bond such as in a total skin or total lace attachment, it is better to take measurements smaller than or the same as the hair loss area just as is the case for attaching with tape.

    For the cross linking attachment method, it is better to use a measurement that goes ½” to ¾” into the existing hair from both side to side and front to back. This will help to make for a more secure attachment.



    Clips, Snaps, Fusion etc


    If you want to wear the hair system by attaching it to your own hair, then we suggest making the measurements big enough to go into about ½” into the existing hair so that there is enough existing hair to hold the hair system in place. This method is also dependent on the quality of your existing hair. You will need to tell that this method can cause hair loss to the places where the clips or snaps are attached. Therefore, you should attach the clips in a diffferent place after a while to allow the hair to recover from stress.



    When to take measurements and when to make molds/templates


    The general rule is that when the bald patch is over 6.5” x 9.5”, it is better to make a mold. For sizes smaller than 6.5” x 9.5” most of the time, standard shapes and contours will fit just fine. For bigger sizes however, there might be buckles during fitting because different people might have different contours.



    Choose the right base


    Choosing the right base is one of the most important decisions to make.

    The majority of us want the most natural-looking bases but at the same time, we also want durability. But there is no way to make a very natural and a very durable base. The more natural a hair system, then the less durable it will be. Conversely, more durable means less natural. However, before you can order  the right, you first need a thorough understanding of the different types of bases.



    Bases fall into the following categories:

    1. Mono (with PU)

    Durable material with double knots. Its PU perimeter makes it easy to tape/glue and clean.

    Take our stock model as an example: F27: 2-3pcs needed a year.



    2. Skins

    Natural but not as durable as mono bases. The durability depends on the thickness of the skin which at its thinnest can be just 0.03mm. Knot types on skin can be single split knots, V-loops and injected hair. V-loops are the most natural but least durable. Single split knots are more durable, but a little bit less natural than V-loops.  

    Take our following stock models as examples:

    S1: 0.08mm skin thickness with V-loops on the front 1/2” and single split knots on the rest. 3-4pcs needed a year.

    S1-V: 0.06mm skin thickness with V-loops all over.  4-6pcs needed a year.

    S22: 0.03mm skin thickness with V-loops all over.  12pcs needed a year.



    3. Lace

    Natural, soft, breathable but not so durable. Bleached knots will make the base more natural but at the same time less durable.

    Take our following stock models as examples:

    S7: French lace all over with bleached knots all over.  4-6pcs needed a year.

    ICON: Super fine welded mono lace all over with bleached knots. 4-6pcs needed a year.



    4. Combination of mono, lace and skin

    It can be mono/lace with a skin perimeter and lace front, or just lace with a skin perimeter or on the back and sides, or even skin with lace front. The durability depends on the combination method.

    The front hairline is very important. Many customers want natural hair systems but in actual fact,  they just need a natural front hair line. So, a lace front would be a good choice for them. Lace fronts can also be repaired and replaced.

    Take our following stock models as examples:

    S15+0.08mm skin with a lace front.  3-5pcs needed a year.

    Q6: French lace with skin on the back and sides. Bleached knots on the front and crown. 3-5pcs needed a year.

    F27+: Fine mono with a PU perimeter and lace front. Bleached knots on the front lace. 3-4pcs needed a year.  The front lace can be repaired/replaced.

    Color Matching



    How to choose hair color


    Normally, we will cut off some hair from the back of the head as a hair sample. When you are taking a hair sample please try to avoid taking a volume of hair that is too short or too small. Such a sample would make it very difficult (nearly impossiible in fact) for the factory to make an exact color match.


    Please be aware that the color at the back is normally the darkest part of the head. If your hair is a fairly dark color like #1, #1B or #2, then you can order the same color as the sample from the back. If your hair is not so dark, then it’s better to order a color that is about two shades lighter than your own hair on the back. However, we don’t just suggest you order “2 shades lighter than the hair sample”, because we won’t be able to guarantee exactly how the color will turn out. It could be with more of a red or ash tone than you imagined since there is no definite standard of what the color “2 shades lighter than the sample” is. In this case, it’s better to choose colors directly from our color ring. Our custom color ring has more than 100 colors that you can choose from. You can order the front, top and temple area to be light, the crown and sides darker, and have the back as the darkest. This will create a more natural look rather than having the same color all over. Also make sure that the back and sides color of the hair system matches your own hair well.


    If you cannot find one color from the color ring that fits you well, you could try to blend two colors to see if it matches.


    A few tips on color matching:


    1. Start from the back of your head which will be the darkest color and then proceed around to the sides and temples.
    2. Usually the temples and sides are one shade lighter than the back.
    3. Usually the color will be two or more shades lighter when you go from the back of the hair up to the crown and the front of hair.
    4. Most of the time, you don’t have any hair on the front. Therefore you can place the color you have chosen for the front of the hair system on your  forehead to see if the color goes well with your complexion. (If you use the same color on the front as the back, you will usually find that it is too dark or too harsh for their complexion.
    5. Comb the color(s) you choose from the color ring into your own hair to see if it matches well. If you are not very sure if the color you have chosen is the right one, then let your other families ot friends have a look too. Two sets of eyes are always better than one after all.
    6. We recommend you change your color ring every couple of years as human hair colors begin to fade over time. When you’re not using it, please try to keep the ring in a cabinet or drawer etc to avoid direct sunlight or other forms of light. Doing so will help to better maintain the colors.



    Stock or Custom


    Before making any decision on whether to order a stock or custom order, please make sure you know our stock hair systems first.


    Stock hair systems: We have 10+ base models and 20+ different colors and our standard base size is 8x10” which can be cut down to any smaller size. The hair density is med-light or medium which are the most popular densities. The hair is slight wave which is also the most common wave. The stock hair systems are of a very high quality, as standard orders can be more easily controlled and monitored. If the hair color, hair density, and wave all match yours well then order stock hair systems. It’s also the most convenient way. We can ship orders out within 24 hours of you having placed your order and you will get the stock hair systems in one week or less.


    But our color options are still limited compared to the many different hair colors that you can have. Many people have smaller wave curls than slight wave. At the same time many people want special hair densities or need a special shape or contour. That’s why when stock hair systems do not fit you, you shouldn’t hesitate to order custom orders instead. Hair color must match you well along with wave curls, hair density, base shape and contour. Although time is needed to produce custom hair systems, they really are worth waiting for.


    Before choosing base models, you need to know the following information about yourself:

    1. Lifestyle
    2. Age
    3. Occupation
    4. Type of hair
    5. Desired type of hair style (hairline)
    6. Color, Texture, Density of existing hair, How much of the same features to be in the hair replacement.

    It is really important to choose a proper replacement, so you need to know your condition well. When you know yourself condition, you can choose a proper hairpiece according to your conditions.
