Forelock Hair Replacement System Ordering Guide

Supplying a template of your hair loss area is a fundamental part of ordering a bespoke hair replacement system. The template will be used as a model from which we will derive the correct size and shape of your hair loss area. This will ensure we make a system that is a perfect fit for you.

 

Top Piece
Standard base size is 8" x 10" with a finished hair length of 6 inches. Covers the hair loss area on top of the head from the front hairline to the crown.

3/4 Cap
Base size is between 8" x 10" and 10" x 10" with a finished hair length of 6 inches. Covers the head from the front hairline to the back of the head. The hair loss area extends further down the side and back of the head.

Full Cap
Base size over 10" x 10" with a finished hair length of 6 inches. Provides complete coverage of the scalp for men who have complete hair loss.

Full Lace Base (French or Swiss)
The advantage of this type of base design is that it’s very light in weight making it very comfortable. When you place the unit against your scalp this delicate lace becomes completely invisible and creates an undetectable natural appearance

Lace Front Base
Lace Front Bases are ideal for people who want appearance but without sacrificing durability. This type of bases are also undetectable in front, but not as comfortable as full lace bases. The maintenance is lower than full lace bases since it is easy to clean.

Skin Base
The translucent membrane allows the scalp color to show through, which renders an exquisite illusion of the hair emerging from the scalp. Easy cleanup, removal, and attachment.

Remy Human Hair
Remy hair is cut from one donor head and tagged “root to tip”. The cuticle is created by careful processing to keep the cuticle layer of the hair in place, resulting in a natural feel.

Hair density is the amount of hair strands on the head. It is measured by counting the number of hair strands found in one square inch (2.5cm) of scalp. When a stylist tells you that you have thick hair, it is high density he or she is describing. Generally, the classifications of hair density are thin, medium, and thick, and are unrelated to the texture of the hair. The average head has approximately 2,200 strands of hair per square inch, and a total of approximately 100,000 hairs.

Different levels of Hair Density

  • Extra light (50%) hair density is very thin and usually seen on older men.
  • Light (80%) hair density is a very light and reveals the scalp when parted.
  • Medium light (100%) hair density is more commonly seen on men in general. It's natural looking with a standard amount of volume.
  • Medium (120%) hair density is more commonly seen on younger men.
  • Medium heavy (140%) hair density is seen on men in their twenties and thirties.
  • Heavy (160%) hair density is usually used to create a theatrical wig.

Finished marking the Template? Now secure the marking with another layer of tape for covering and sealing purpose of the marking. See the sketch as how the hair direction and parting is indicated as a suggestion. Then for matching the exact color of your originally grown hair, attach minimum 2 locks of hair taken from your head over the Template. And don't forget to indicate as from which part of your head these locks were taken, so that the craftsmen will know from the mold and match your hair color accurately. (In case you are able to provide a color code, well – forget this identification).

Upon finishing marking the tape template, place one more layer of the transparent tape (now four) going from side to side. This should seal and protect the markings. Now your template is complete.

Carefully untie and remove the template from your head and cut with a scissors the excess plastic wrap along the outer perimeter line you drawn. A wonderful tape template is coming out, place it back on the bald area of your head to ensure it's the correct size and shape and you're done! Just go and send it to us together with your hair sample (we will show you how to make hair samples separately).
