Non-Surgical Hair Replacement FAQ

What kind of hair is used?

While human hair is the most common type of hair we use, there are also synthetic options. Human hair tends to be more popular because it is natural hair and has a natural movement, shine, and feel that comes with it. Human hair can be colored and to cover grey hair and it can be washed and styled like normal. Synthetic hair is man-made and doesn’t have a natural look or feel, but it is less expensive. However, the hair replacement process can be done with up to 40 percent synthetic hair and still achieve a natural look.

How is the hair applied?

There are three methods for applying the hair: bonding adhesive, tape, or clips. The last thing Avenue Hair wants is for someone’s hair to come flying off on a windy day or to fall off in the pool. Our team uses a strong bonding adhesive, or glue, that will keep the piece secure throughout most weather conditions. Depending on how well you take care of the hair, the adhesive should last between three and 24 months. Give our hair salon a call to learn how you can effectively take care of your hair.

What should I look for in a good hairpiece?

The first thing you’ll want is for the piece to look natural and undetectable. To ensure your new hair looks as natural as possible, we’ll start with a consultation to discuss the color, thickness, and direction of your hair. You’ll also want the hair to feel lightweight and natural feeling so that it doesn’t get in the way of daily activities. If you are ever unsure about how it looks or feels, don’t hesitate to let us know of your concerns.
