The process of a cut in hair system is simple! If you have a hair system and you require a restyle, you can either send it to us or visit us at our HQ in Bristol.
What Colour is a Blank Canvas?
Your new hair system is provided with extra length and no real styling. This is to give your stylist a blank canvas on which to work.
Your stylist will cut in the system, matching and blending with your own hair. They will then style it to your own wishes and the end result will look amazing.
Once the hair system has been cut it does not need cutting again unless you want to change the style.
For the best results you should think about using a properly trained stylist who specialises in hair replacement systems and the very specific needs of hair wearers.
You can of course use your own stylist, the important thing is to be looked after by somebody you trust and feel comfortable with.
Our stylists are discreet and sympathetic to the needs of their customers so you can be sure to be in good hands.
Tips for Cutting in a Hair System
Ensure your hair system is properly bonded before styling.
Have a clear idea of the style that you would like so you can convey it to the stylist with ease.
Take along any clippings of similar styles you may have seen.
Ensure you give plenty of time for the fitting and cut in. It can be quite a job to do the first cut and fit so ensure you and your stylist are aware of this and leave enough time so as not to be rushing such a delicate job.
Don’t forget about your own hair! Your existing hair will continue to grow while your hair system stands still.
This means you will need regular appointments with a stylist to trim your own hair. How often will depend on the style and length of your hair.
You may be able to do this yourself if you use clippers.
You might not even need a specialist stylist. Your regular hairdresser could probably do this.
In fact, we had one customer who had his hair trimmed by his local hairdresser who simply would not believe he was wearing a hair system until he took it in one day with a beanie hat in its place!
Ensure that you initially go for a style that leaves a little length on. Hair can always be chopped off; it can’t be put back on.
A good plan is to have the styling done with a view to going back to have it shortened after a week or two. That way you can judge whether it needs more off, and how much.
Cutting your hair too short could ruin the look you wanted and may result in having to order a whole new system. Please take this into consideration.
So there you go. With a few swishes of a stylist’s flashing blade they will be expertly fashioned into your long dreamed of crowning glory.
