Hair Loss & Hair Restoration FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Loss & Hair Replacement.
What can I expect during my initial hair loss consultation?
Your initial hair loss consultation is an opportunity for us to get acquainted and designed to allow us to get acquainted. It also allows us to evaluate your hair loss and understand what your concerns are and what goals you have for how you want your hair to look. I typically last between 45 minutes to an hour. This time is also a candid question and answer time where you can ask questions about your hair loss and understand the various treatments and hair replacement options available to you, we will determine which solutions would be right for you so get the result your looking for. We encourage you to bring along your spouse or significant other or close friend to help you in your hair loss treatment evaluation process.
Isn’t a Hair Replacement System just a Toupee or Hairpiece by Another Name?
In a very broad sense, they refer to the same thing. The social connotations of the terms however, are very far apart from one another. In the early years of the twentieth century, the term “toupee” was used when referring to a hair piece. The toupees of the era were very primitive and fake looking, quite bulky and extremely uncomfortable to wear. They had a very strong negative stigma that had become attached to them that has stuck with that term even today.
Enter into modern day hair replacement systems and you will see they are virtually nothing like their ancient predecessors. Think of it like comparing your grandmother’s old eyeglasses to the latest modern-day contact lenses. Both from a technological and aesthetic standpoint there is really no comparison.
Will a Non-Surgical Hair Replacement System Look Natural?
Nobody wants to have hair that looks fake. That is why in today’s modern hair replacement industry, our best work is never “seen.” Nobody can tell that the hair you have on is not real, natural growing hair. At Salon Iaomo we offer complete salon services. Our stylists and technicians will perfectly match your hair color, curl, volume and hair texture. We guarantee that nobody will ever know that you are wearing a hair replacement system unless you tell you are. Even if your are getting out of the pool with wet hair swooped back.
What Will My Friends or Co-Workers Say When I Suddenly Show up with a Full Head of Hair?
While reactions do vary, what we most often hear from our clients is that their friends and co-workers generally didn’t notice. Instead they commented on how well their new hair style looked, or “Did you style your hair differently this weekend?” Other times people may notice something different about you, but they can’t figure out what it is. It is also not unusual for our clients to refer their friends or family members who they have told their secret to, and have them so blown away that they now want what they have.
I am Very Embarrassed about My Hair Loss. I Don’t Want Anyone to Know.
You can rest assured that all of our services take place in a caring, confidential, private setting. We take the confidentiality and privacy of our clients very seriously. No one will know you came to us to have your hair loss needs met unless you share it with them.
