How does your Product and
Service Differ from other Hair Replacement Clubs or Hair
There are several choices
when looking for hair replacement centers. Almost
everybody has heard of Hair Club for Men and Women. They
are the largest Hair Replacement Center / Club and are a
large corporation. Then there are many small outfits run
by independent stylists. European Hair Institute is a
mid-size solution and an alternative to Hair Club.
European Hair Institute is staffed by several
knowledgeable hair replacement specialists. All our
hair piece products are custom designed for each client and we use
the finest European Hair available.
Why should I choose
European Hair Institute vs. the other Hair Replacement
Clubs or Hair Replacement Centers?
Quite simply, our business
model is different. We know success comes from offering
an outstanding product at competitive prices and
employing talented experienced stylists. Our number one
goal is to surpass our customerís expectations.
Unfortunately for the
industry, it seems many of my competitorís business
models are financial. To maximize profit they generally
sacrifice quality and customer service. Several
approaches used by these type of business are: a) Hard
sell b) Using confusing terminology c) Not showing you
products d) Not discussing the proís and conís of each
method available e) Requiring you to sign a contract.

Can you explain the
differences between various Hair Types used in the
There are three basic hair
types used in the industry:
- Human Hair
- European Hair
a) Synthetic hair is man made
and is essentially plastic. It is not a popular choice
for a complete hair system due to the finished look,
feel and lack of natural movement. It is however used
quite often for gray hair blends. Up to ~40% of the hair
can be synthetic without compromising the look, feel and
texture. This allows the hair piece to be colored if
necessary without affecting the grey, since synthetic
will not accept color.
b) Human hair is a term used
loosely in the industry and generally refers to hair
which is from Asia and has been chemically stripped of
the cuticle (cuticle is the exterior armor plating of
the hair). The hair is then treated with a silicone type
of coating. In the beginning this hair is nice and silky
soft, but as the coating wears off (8-10 washings), the
hair loses its luster and silkiness. Because the cuticle
is missing, the hair is greatly affected by the elements
(chlorine, minerals in water, oxygen and sun light).
These environmental factors make the hairís color fade
and it begins taking on a reddish tone.
c) European hair is hair that
comes from a European country and has its natural
cuticle intact. As mentioned above, the cuticle is the
exterior armor plating of the hair. Cuticle ensures that
the hair is strong, has shine, manageability, and color
retention. This type of hair retains its natural
movement and will flow like your own hair (especially
important for those windy days). This is the best hair
available and significantly contributes to an
I want a completely
Undetectable Hair System. Can you provide this?
Completely undetectable is a
subjective term. One can always argue that upon close
enough inspection anything non-natural can be detected.
What is possible is a Virtually Undetectable Hair
Replacement System. These are so much like your natural hair that
the average person will not have a clue itís not real,
even if they are touching it.
The most natural technology
available is a very thin polymer material with hair
injected through it. This product is clear and when
placed on the scalp, the system virtually disappears and
only the scalp is visible. Since hair is injected into
the polymer base it appears as if hair is growing
directly from the scalp. This system is also so thin it
is almost impossible to detect from touch. This is the
most popular choice for my single clientele.
What is the difference
between a Hair Piece System, Hair Replacement System and a Toupee?
The term Toupee is an old
term used in the industry. As the industry progressed in
its ability to create a less detectable product, a new
term ďHair Replacement System or Hair Piece SystemĒ was created.
What is the difference
between a Womenís Hair Systems and a Manís Hair System?
The quality of the hair used
on a womanís hair system is critical to customer
satisfaction. Since most women have longer hair and
greater density then men, the hair used for women is
from the best possible European sources. Due to the
extra cost associated with this type of hair, womenís
hair systems are designed to be more robust then a manís
hair system so they can last two years or more.
Hair Replacement Centers /
Clubs which do not provide this type of hair generally
use a manís solution and tell you need to replace them
every few months when the hair starts to tangle. My
experience shows that women are very dissatisfied using
this type of inferior hair. Therefore all customers of
European Hair Institute get a custom designed solution
tailored specifically to their needs and hair
Whatís the difference
between Hair Replacement and Hair Restoration?
Hair replacement is a
non-surgical means of providing hair. This is done by
using hair systems to cover the area of thinning and
utilizing as much of your natural hair as possible.
Hair restoration is a
surgical method of replacing hair. This is done by
transplanting hair from the back of the head to the area

treated woman in their mid-twenties. It is estimated
that 20 million women in the U.S. suffer from some form
of thinning hair.
Hair loss in women occurs in
varying degrees and usually affects the crown area
predominately. Hair loss is caused by numerous factors
such as heredity, hormonal changes, illness, diet, and
stress. The most common form of hair loss is
androgenetic alopecia (AGA). It is estimated that 40% of
women will have some form AGA when they reach menopause.
Hair loss is gradual, with miniaturization of hair
follicles. Other disorders include alopecia areata (auto
immune), telogen effluvium (stress), traumatic alopecias
(trauma), and Trichotillomania (impulse disorder).
