Size is determined through the use of a tape template, plaster, fiberglass or foam mold. Size can be specified in inches, however this neglects to show contour and recession needed on unit. (Contour is the curvature of the head. Recession is the shape of the front hairline. Both are necessary to provide a proper custom fit and natural look to the finished piece. See this separate page for instructions on making a Template or our Educational Training Tape can help. You may also send us an old system that fits properly to use as a template.
The base material ring shows the types of Mesh available for interior of unit, fronts, and Tape/Bonding areas. Use “Draw Base Design” diagram on the order form to show specifically of where you want base materials, as well as tape tab size.
Types of Hair
Synthetic: Grey hair is usually synthetic (unless human is requested). The factory uses a blend of Kanekalon and Toupelon for Synthetic fibers. Kanekalon: Warm base colors (red tones). It is coarser and will hold the curl the best. Toupelon: Very fine texture. Has ash (green) tones. Yak Hair; Yak hair is of organic origin (animal) and is most often used when human hair is desired for grey instead of synthetic for grey. It can be treated as human hair and will accept chemical perming or coloring.
We are now very pleased to be able to offer 3 types of human hair for your custom made hair system - they are:
Regular Indian or Chinese Human Hair: This hair has gone through an acid bath stripping most of the cuticle from the hair. This hair has been chemically colored to match your hair sample.
Remy Human Hair: Remy hair is of Indian origin collected from various temples in India, where people go and offer their hair to Lord Tirumala in reverence. The specialty of this hair is that when the hair is cut from the devotees head, they are cut in a pony tail or braided form thus keeping all the cuticles in the same direction. The Remy hair when used properly in hair ventilation of hair pieces or on a weft do not tangle and have a smooth feeling when you run your finger from top to bottom. This is hair that does NOT go through an acid bath. Because it still has the cuticle on it is stronger than regular hair used in hair pieces. This is a good middle of the road quality of hair for those who want better than our regular hair but don’t want to pay for European hair.
European Human Hair: This hair is truly the most beautiful fine European hair available in the world. It is NOT imitation THIS CAUCASIAN HAIR MAY NOT BE CHEMICALLY PROCESSED AT ALL. It has only been combed out and ran through a hackle so there is very little waste. This hair is most desirable. This is the finest European human hair available in the world. Salons charge their clients many hundreds, if not thousands more just to have this type of hair used for hair systems (if they can get it). This is the hair that movie stars and wealthy people use. It is so nice that everybody who tries it loves it. Especially the long hair is wonderful. NOW ITS AFFORDABLE TO EVERYONE!!
Finished Hair Length
Finished hair length is from the knot to the end of hair before curling. No extra charge for lengths up to 6". Long hair charges will apply to length 8" and longer.
Under-venting is a row of hair vented into the bottom of base along the outside perimeter. Used at the front hairline it helps to conceal the edge of base material that is not scalloped or made of lace. Light is 1 row, Medium is 2 rows and Heavy is 3 rows of under-venting. We do not recommend under-venting on lace units, scallop fronts, or Micro thin Poly skin (graft material) fronts. Doing this would show too heavy of a solid line on these materials and defeat the purpose of using that material.
Some type of hair venting direction must be given on the order. This indicates to the factory how to ventilate the hair to give it style-ability. If you want a definite whorl in the crown, check the location on order form. If you want a definite or diffused part, check location on form. Freestyle is vented forward from the crown position, and can be combed or parted anywhere. On the picture “Draw Hair Direction” you may want to draw how the wearer wishes to comb their hair
Many things such as base material, hair length and type of hair/fiber used will affect the finished appearance of Density. Choose your desired thickness (density). Example: Medium Density is 100% thickness of a normally full head of hair. Light Density is 80% thickness on a normally full head of hair, 150% density is very thick, etc.
Wave and Curl
Any amount of curl can be chosen for Synthetic hair. Human hair curl appears to hold as well as a permanent wave. Blondes and longer lengths do not respond well to a curl. It may over process the hair and is not recommended. Due to many variables (length, density, color, organic origin) each human hair reacts differently during curling procedure. We cannot guarantee a consistent exact curl. We give it our best try, without a guarantee of results. See professional perm rod size guide below:
Color Hair Samples
Sending us a sample of the hair color desired is best. We copy it exact. When sending hair samples check sample to see if one end is lighter than the other. If grey has yellow tones, specify is we should match the yellow or use white grey. Check color samples carefully, cut off any oxidized or discolored ends. Submit ONLY the color desired, and enough to be able to accurately see the real color. Grey: Specify Synthetic or human for grey. Always specify “total” grey percentage to help eliminate misinterpretation or miscalculation of finished percentages. If wearers hair color varies significantly all over the head, then clip samples from different areas. Place each sample in a small zip lock bag and mark a letter on bag, i.e.; A, B, etc. Then write the corresponding letter on correct area on order form. High-lights: This adds lighter tones to base color for a frosted, multichromatic effect. Color sample for High-lights must be sent and will be blended or streaked with base color as you specify. Percentage of highlight and areas to be highlighted must also indicated.
Tape Bonding Areas
Draw on “base design” picture exactly where you want tape tab area. State width-average is 3/4 inch. Tape tab material must also be specified. Polyurethane (PU) is the most popular for sides and back. It can be specified a coated or clear. Clear Poly skin works well as a scalloped front edge tape tab. Ribbon may be specified on sides and back, not on the front unless this is an integration (pull through) system. Ribbon is used for cable weave track and sew method of attachment or clips. Lace or micro thin poly skin (graft) fronts or full systems give the most real looking hairline. However these materials are very fragile and do not hold up as well as other materials do. This is why they cannot be guaranteed for a certain length of time. Wearer must be very gentle. Up to 6 months is about all the client should expect from fragile materials. If ordering a fragile base material front on unit, it is recommended that you order 2 at a time. This way wearer can wear one while the repair is being done on the other. Typically this is a lot less cost for the client than having a whole new system made. Replaceable fronts are attached with Cindycut Lace frontal tape, or Ultrabond adhesive. These are medical grade adhesives applied directly to clients skin.
