Los Angeles Lace Front Wigs

What is a lace wig and is it right for me?

b2ap3_thumbnail_topimg.png 

Wigs can come with either real human hair or synthetic hair, styled or straight, black or some other color, and so forth. But one trait that you may not think about is the wig’s base, or how it is actually worn on a person.

Some wigs can be worn simply like a cap, and then there are those that can be braided into your hair, almost like extensions but for your whole head. Lace wigs offer a nice medium between the these types of bases.

As the name suggests, lace wigs contain a sheer, lace base where each strand of hair is tied to the lace itself. A full lace base can be worn for those who would like to style their wigs in an updo, but takes more time to put on. A lace front wig, however, only has the sheer lace on the front of the wig, so it can be placed one quicker than a full lace wig, but will only allow the wearer to style their hair down. But, lace fronts are more popular than full lace, since people tend to value the convenience of the former.

Whether you’re experience hair loss or not, lace wigs can be a great choice for those who are looking for a full hairpiece that looks natural, as if it was their own hair.

However, we do recommend that you do not wear your lace wigs for long periods of time. The constant tugging of your own hair may damage hair follicles. But like with anything in life, everything must be taken in moderation. You should wear these wigs on special occasions, and when you have found the time to properly place the wig on your hair.

Lace front wigs are a popular choice for those in the entertainment field, especially in the performing arts, since they give a natural look and are easy to put on and take off a person.

Wondering what kind of wigs or hairpieces are the right fit for your lifestyle?

We have offices in Los Angeles and Woodland Hills, so book today!

Facial hair transplants: Why men should not be so quick to get them

facial_hair_transplant.jpg

Hair transplants are nothing new. The procedure itself has been around for a very long time, helping men and women everywhere with balding issues. Surgery can last for hours, and recovery could last a few days, but it’s one of the most popular hair replacement techniques.

But there is a new trend on the rise, attributed to the “hipsters” of society who find solace in having a full beard: facial hair transplants.

We are quite sure now that the trend has bypassed the hipsters and carried onto the general male demographic. It’s become almost commonplace to desire not only having a beard, but also for others to desire a beard on their male lover. A quick glance at any red carpet will show you just that.

But why now? Why, after centuries and eras of men sporting beards, has it gotten to the point where men are rushing to get these transplants? For one, technological advances in this industry has made it more affordable to do so (a facial hair transplant costs about the same as a hair transplant, starting at $3,000 and depends greatly on your hair and needs.)

Also, the rise of startup businesses that go against the corporate schema, challenging the idea of how men should look while at work, has helped with the trend as well. It was considered taboo for men holding high positions at large companies to have beards, as many studies have shown that facial hair can send off the wrong message to people about a man’s personality and temperament.

But before you go out and get a facial hair transplant, you need to stop yourself, sit down for a bit, and entertain these few points:

  1. Like many trends, this too could die off. The reason why all want beards could be that it was so rare for a guy to sport a good one, so when the population of bearded men go on the rise, it could correlate to the decline of those desiring one. Would you really want to spend thousands of dollars for something that may or may not be ‘trendy’ in a few more years?
  2. You can’t hide your recovery period as well as normal hair transplant surgeries. You can conceal your head with a hat for days after surgery, but what would you use to hide your face? You could always try the beard beanie.
  3. Consider the real reasons why you want a fuller beard. Is it because you really want a beard (for a long time) and it gives you more confidence, or is it because you want to attract the attention of others? While a little vanity never hurts, think about whether you’re doing this for yourself or for others.

Considering hair transplants to help you deal with baldness? Contact our staff at HRC in Los Angeles in a free hair and scalp consultation, to discuss whether hair transplants would be the best hair replacement technique for your situation.

Hair Loss Specialist Los Angeles: 8 Interesting Facts About Human Hair

b2ap3_thumbnail_8Interesting.jpg

Hair is fascinating, and just as fascinating are some of these facts that the hair loss specialists at HRC in Los Angels have found and learned in our experiences. From hair growth to hair loss, these interesting tidbits are great conversation starters!

  1. Hair is the second fastest growing tissue in the body.

It’s second only to bone marrow. While race and gender play a role in how fast hair grows, it’s often quoted that hair grows about 6in/15cm per year.

  1. Blondes have more hair.

Blondes may or may not have more fun, but they have more hair, at about 130,000 strands compared to brunettes at 100,000. Also, a new scientific study claims that blonde women also have more estrogen.

  1. Beards can help protect against skin cancer.

It’s true that beards are back in vogue for men for style, but it seems there’s an added benefit -- it protects the skin against harmful UVs, cutting exposure to almost one-third.

  1. Gender and age cannot be determined by a hair strand.

Despite what you may have seen in CSI, hair strands can’t tell forensic scientists (without the root, from common hair loss or hair that’s been cut) what age or sex the hair came from (although general age determination, like an infant or a senior, stands).

  1. Hair dye and bleach cause only temporary hair loss.

It’s a standard notion that excessive hair coloring treatment can lead to hair loss for both men and women, however, it’s only temporary. The chemicals may cause your hair to become brittle and break off, but hair dye won’t give you bald patches or pattern baldness. We still recommend that you get your hair professionally colored.

  1. You CAN color hair with human hair extensions.

With professional help, it is very possible to dye your hair even if you have hair extensions. Keep in mind however that most hair pieces come with the hair already chemically-treated, so be sure to make your stylist aware of that. Some patch tests may need to occur before a full color treatment.

  1. Studies have linked heart disease to male baldness.

Many claim that just because there’s correlation between two events, doesn’t mean one signifies the other. However, this study on male pattern baldness and coronary heart disease is too significant to ignore -- the team found that “balding men had a 70% higher risk of having heart disease, while those in younger age groups had an 84% elevated chance.” If you’re a man experiencing hair loss, particularly in the frontal and crown-top areas, it’s important to discuss with your doctor the state of your cardiovascular health.

  1. Only 1% of the entire world’s population have red hair.

13% of the Scottish population has red hair, making it the highest proportion of redheads in the world. And in the U.S., there are more number of people with red hair than anywhere in the world.

While there are many facts about hair loss, this one fact remains: the professional, trained staff at HRC can help you with your hair needs, from laser hair therapy to Virtual Reality and Virtuésse, a non-surgical method for hair restoration. Contact us today for a free hair and scalp consultation.

Wigs are a great hair replacement method for people who are experiencing all different kinds of hair loss. Whether you’re a cancer patient going through chemotherapy, or a person inflicted with alopecia areata or trichotillomania, having a wig can help you regain that confidence in your image and make you feel like yourself again.

We here at HRC pride ourselves in carrying lace front wigs, which are a very popular choice among many who wear wigs. Lace front wigs create the look of natural hair growth along the front lines, which means that they can be styled back if you want! Your hairline will look so natural that no one can tell that you’re wearing a wig.

The difference between human hair and synthetic hair wigs

While both types of wigs have their own benefits, read the pros and cons of each to see which nonsurgical hair replacement solution one would be right for you.

Human hair wigs: Pros

  • Looks the most natural; higher quality
  • Versatile in terms of styling
  • Durable and will last a while

Human hair wigs: Cons

  • More expensive than synthetic
  • Requires styling; more effort

Synthetic hair wigs: Pros

  • Ready-to-wear; little effort needed
  • Less expensive than human hair
  • Variety of styles and color available

Synthetic hair wigs: Cons

  • Less versatile; styling is more difficult
  • Special heating tools needed for styling

Wigs are available not only for women, but are a great hair solution for men and children as well. And, modern-day technology has been able to create wigs that are comfortable for all types of heads.
