As Dallas Hair Replacement Specialists, we are so excited and proud to be certified in offering Men’s Hair Replacement Services in Dallas using the Hairskeen Systems.  Here we will give some insight and set some expectations of what the system looks like, some maintenance guidelines, and hopefully help you better understand our men’s hair replacement services in Dallas.

 

Who is a candidate?

Hairskeen Men’s Hair Replacement Systems are a fully customizable hair replacement system for men experiencing partial or full top of the head hair loss or balding.  Each unit is fully sized, cut, and designed to your own head shape and hair growth patterns.  Our stylists are trained and certified on the Hairskeen Systems and can confidently customize a unit for multiple scenarios:

 

  • Balding in a small isolated spot, such as the crown.
  • Receding Hairline
  • Full hair loss on the top, also known as male pattern balding.

The above graphic is a general depiction of who can benefit from a Hairskeen Men’s Hair Replacement system, but there are so many applications that would benefit as well.  The best way to determine whether the system would work for you would be to meet with a stylist, in person or via zoom to talk about the options and discuss how it can work for you.

 

What is a Hairskeen Men’s Hair Replacement System?

Simply put, the Hairskeen System is a modern hair loss solution for the modern man.  Forget what you think you know, or what you think it looks like.  Hairskeen has a collection of unique hair replacements, combining high-tech aesthetics with natural-looking designs. Adaptable to all types of hair loss, Hairskeen solutions are made with extreme finesse, benefiting from the latest technological advances including innovative materials for an ultra-natural custom-made result.

 

How does it work?

A Hairskeen System is installed to your own head using very strong Medical Grade Tape or is bonded to your head with a strong adhesive.  Half of our guests prefer to have it installed using tape, and the other half prefer bonding the system to their scalp.  Either way, the system stays secure for 3-4 weeks, at which point needs to be removed and re-installed.

Both adhesives, tape or bonding, actually use your very short hairs and your skin as a bonding point to anchor the system to your head.  There is absolutely no pain and it is very comfortable once installed.  In fact, most of our guests are completely shocked at how durable and strong the system is adhered to your head.   It truly becomes a part of you, not just in the way it looks but also feels when wearing.

After 3-4 weeks the system needs to be removed and re-installed to keep the attachment method (tape or bond) fresh, and to keep the length of any of your hairs underneath trimmed short.  See below for a before and after showing a client before, and after wearing a Hairskeen system installed with one of our Men’s Hair Replacement Specialists at Bigger Better Hair.

 

How can I talk with a stylist about this?

Our stylists at Bigger Better Hair were trained and certified in NYC by Hairskeen and have been perfecting their application techniques in a variety of scenarios.  Before proceeding with an install, our stylists need to meet with you to discuss the options that would best suit your needs.

They will also go over all of your maintenance, as well as take some measurements of your head prior to installation.  From there, you can decide if moving forward is right for you.  Once you order the hair, we will schedule your first installation, which includes a blending haircut to blend the system into your own hair for a natural cut.

 

 

What is the cost?

There are a lot of variables and different timelines between hair costs, installation services, and maintenance appointments.  Here is a general timeline with pricing to help set your expectations of pricing to make sure this can fit into your lifestyle:

1st appointment: Consultation  $0

This is the most important step to starting you off with realistic expectations to start your next hair chapter.  Our stylists will explain the systems and show you which would work best for you and your lifestyle.  From there, if you choose to proceed you will need to purchase your system, at which point we will schedule your first installation.

Hairskeen Systems range from $500-$550+tax depending on which method you choose: the “Skin” or “Mono” base options.  Both are amazing and offer the same end result, however they offer different pro’s and con’s.  In your consultation, our stylists will explain each and help guide you to the option that would best suit your lifestyle and circumstances.

 

2nd Appointment: First Installation + Blending Haircut

This is where the magic begins!  At this point, your stylist will install your new hairskeen system, and perform a blending haircut to seamlessly blend your natural hair into your system.   Depending on which method of installation you and your stylist choose, the costs are as follows:

1st Installation (Tape) + Blending Haircut: $275

1st Installation (Bonded) + Blending Haircut: $325

 

3rd Appiointment: Removal & Re-installation

At this point, you will need the system removed & re-installed.  This is exactly what your stylist will do: remove the system, and re-install it.

If you are needing a haircut on the sides of your hair, you will need to let us know so we can add that to your services.  The Hairskeen re-application service only allocates enough time for the Hairskeen system maintenance, and a haircut will require additional time.

You will repeat this service over and over until it is time to start fresh with a new Hairskeen System

Re-Application for Tape-in System: $150

Re-application for Bonded System: $175

Clipper or Scissor Cut (Optional, for your natural hair) : $45

System Lifespan

Most clients wear the same system and have it re-installed every 3-4 weeks for 3-6 months depending on how well you take care of it in between visits, and the overall cap construction you choose.

The Hairskeen “Skin” System is the most realistic base that looks almost identical to a scalp with natural hair growing from it, however it is more fragile and has a shorter life span.  This method can only be bonded and can not be installed using tape.  While the maintenance for both is the same: every 3-4 weeks, this means the system will need to be replaced more frequently, around every 2-3 months.

The Hairskeen “Mono” System provides a sturdier base that can last a bit longer than the “Skin” system, and can be installed using the bonding method or using hair extension tape.  This system is maintained the same: every 3-4 weeks, and can last up to 6 months with good maintenance in between salon visits.

 

How to Proceed or Schedule

If you are interested, or have additional questions the first step is to move forward with a consultation with one of our Dallas Men’s Hair Replacement Specialists.  Consultations are complimentary, and usually take 20-30 minutes.  Our men’s hair replacement specialists will show you the two different bases, and fill you in on which they think would best suit your needs.  Should you choose to proceed, you will purchase the system and we will setup your next appointment which would be the first installation and blending haircut.  From there, you will be in the salon every 3-4 weeks for a removal/re-install service until it is time to replace the Hairskeen System.

What beauty products are your “must haves” if you are stranded on an island?

Living Proof Dry Shampoo, Olaplex # 6&7, Arrojo Wave Mist.

 

What’s up Friends lets’ talk extensions today, Microbead extensions to be specific. There are many types of extensions and microbeads are one of the most popular in today’s world. If you are looking for some added length and volume, microbeads might be an option.

 

These extensions are held on to your hair with a …[ Drumroll Please]  you guessed it a microbead. This is a metal or plastic ring that is clamped to your hair used to hold the hair link. Each pack will come with about 20-25 hair strings and should all have a shoelace link at the tip of them. This will be the end that is clamped into the bead onto your natural hair.

 

 

Is my hair a candidate for Microbead Extensions??

There is an extension method for everyone, but not every method is for everyone. This method in-particular can be perfect for clients with medium to thick hair with a natural wave or curl. Clients with fine straight hair might have a harder time trying to disguise the extensions. This is also healthy for your hair because there is no glue or heat used during the application. The bead has a layer of silicone to help protect the hair.

 

Installation

Installation can take anywhere from 1-3 hours depending on how much hair will be needed to reach your hair goals, and how fast your stylist moves. It is recommended that any color service is done before. Every install begins with freshly cleansed hair to make sure there is no oils left that could possibly cause a slip. Small sections of your hair are then pulled through a loop wand to place the bead, which will help to secure the hair link when clamped closed.

 

Maintenance

With any extensions there is always some maintenance appointments required to help with the health of your hair and the extensions. It is important that you do not miss these.

  • 6-8wks after your install service, clients are to come in for a “Push-Up”. In this service, the beads are opened then pushed up towards your scalp. Wash and style included
  • 6-8wks after your “Push-up” appointment, clients will come in for a “Removal & Reinstall”. In this service the beads and extensions are removed and cleansed. Once the client’s natural hair has been cleansed and dried your stylist will then reinstall the extensions.

 

Maintenance does not stop with just salon visits, at home care is strongly encouraged with every client. The proper use of tools and products should be implemented with every wash at home. Washing should be 2-3 times a week, ideal being just twice, using a gentle sulfate free shampoo. Conditioner or any oil products should only be placed on mid-length to ends never on or near the beads as this can cause slipping.

 

Thank you for reading my blog on MicroBead Extensions and Maintenance, if you have any questions about the service feel free to book a consultation and I’m currently offering 10% off all services.

 

What color hair looks best on your skin tone?

Are you always wondering which is the best hair color for your skin tone? Do you find yourself wanting change or a completely new look but don’t know what will look good on you? This blog is here to help you and tell you everything you need to know about matching your hair color with your skin tone!

 

How to decide if your skin is warm, cool or neutral.

Warm skin usually shows warm colors such as reds, yellows, and oranges. Most people with a warm skin tone have brown, hazel, or honey eyes and tan very easily.

 

 

Cool skin usually shows colors such as pinks, rosy tones, or bluish-reds. People with a cool skin tone typically have blue, grey, green, or deep brown eyes and a lot of the time burn to a crisp in the sun.

 

 

If you have a combination of some warm traits and cool traits, then your skin is most likely neutral. Now that you know what skin tone you are, let’s find out what hair color suits you best!

 

How to choose the perfect hair color?

 

You always want to go with a hair color that compliments the undertones of your skin, if you have warm skin, warm hair compliment your skin best. If you have cool skin, cool, ashy hair would compliment your skin best. If you have neutral toned skin, then lucky you! Many colors would compliment your skin! I would say Miley Cyrus has neutral skin, or maybe she’s just lucky and everything looks great on her!

 

 

When you choose the wrong hair color for your skin it tends to make you look like these photos.

 

 

These photos show how great people look when they match their hair and skin!

 

 

If you have cool hair with warm skin vise versa, don’t feel the need to change your hair color.

 

In the end hair color is an opinion and it matters if you love it, so if you love it, just go with it! Want to talk to a hair stylist to get a second opinion or advice? Tap here to book a consultation with our hair stylist and they can help you reach your hair goals.

I soon realized Bigger Better Hair has some of the most talented, down to earth stylist in Dallas.

I think I want to go blonde. Should I get extensions? My hair needs a cut. I hate my frizzy hair!… Have you ever thought about changing your hair, but not sure how or where to start? We got you friend, at Bigger Better Hair we offer complimentary consultations in-person or virtually with a professional to help you reach your hair goals.

Why meet virtually instead of in-person?

This is the 21st century, and technology makes our lives easier! We use virtual consultations to assist busy clients who want to talk with us prior to booking a service, such as extensions or color, or before they buy a product. This method is also a way to extend the reach of our salon to clients located outside the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. We have clients who live in Austin, Lubbock, Houston, Chicago, and all parts in between. Finally, in this day of social distancing, virtual consultations ensure that clients can remain in the safety of their own space while they learn about hair services or products.

What to expect during the Virtual Consultation?

You will be provided with an introductory email and a link to access the virtual meeting platform – currently we are using Zoom. We ask that you follow the instructions and check out your personal technology device to ensure that it is compatible. If you have difficulties, we are ready and able to assist you. At the time of the scheduled meeting, one of our stylists will begin video chatting with you. They are experts in their field, so they are more than able to give you explanations, walk you through processes, discuss costs, answer questions, help you with color-matching, and book follow-up appointments.  The meeting will last approximately 30 minutes, and it is free to the client.

 

Extension Consultations


We offer many different types of extension services so that we can address a variety of hair needs. Do you want to add length and volume? Are you seeking to cover up hair loss? Do you want more flexibility in styling? Are you willing to commit to extension care? Are you aware of the costs of hair, installation, and maintenance?

Clients can effectively present their hair goals and inspiration to our stylists in the comfort of their home or office. We can make recommendations based on the type and condition of their hair and thoroughly explain the advantages and disadvantages of different types of extensions. We can discuss care and maintenance of extensions as well. Stylists will analyze the cost of hair, extension installation, and regular maintenance for each client.

Want extensions that you can put in and take out whenever the mood strikes? Stylists are happy to outline the advantages of Hidden Crown Halos and clip-ins.

Want to think about it before committing to getting extensions? You have the information you need to make the decision that is right for you! At no time is the client pressured to move forward with hair extensions.

 

Color Consultations


Virtual Consultations are a great way for you to discuss your hair color goals with a stylist. Often clients will see an amazing hair color/style on social media and want to have an “Instagram Makeover” themselves. The stylist can advise if the desired color transformation will be possible considering the current condition of the client’s hair, and he/she can advise how long the color change may take.

Sometimes clients need color correction, having used box dye or some other method to color their hair and the result is not what they desired. The stylist can advise the best course of action and the length of time it will take to correct the color.

Some clients desire fantasy or specialty colors. In the Virtual Consultation, the stylist can discuss length of service, how to maintain the color, and how to grow it out.

 

 

Hair Loss


For clients who have experienced premature hair loss, the Virtual Consultation is a great resource. The stylist can discuss options available including extensions, toppers, volumizers, or wigs. The meeting is held in the comfort and privacy of the client’s home or office.

At Bigger Better Hair we offer a wide variety of hair extensions for clients looking to enhance their natural hair. As a stylist, I am here to give you some helpful info about our Hand Tied Weft Extensions that might help you to decide if they are the right hair extension method for you.

 

Are you the right candidate for Hand Tied Weft Extensions??


This method is great for clients with medium to thick hair density looking to increase their current length and volume.  Hand Tied Weft extensions are also great for someone who lives an active lifestyle since there is no glue to worry about.  For clients with short hair and are looking to add extreme length, we might suggest another method for you.

 

Are Hand Tied Extensions the right method for your hair??


Hand Tied is a glue free, no heat, no braid extension method that causes zero damage to a clients hair when being installed.

 

Installation in a Nutshell!


First we secure beads to your hair, then we hand tie the wefts into your hair with a durable string. Once all the wefts are installed and secure, the hair is cut and blended into your hair to give it a more natural look.

 

 

Check out this video to see how they are hand tied into the anchor beads.

Maintenance Appointments


Just like all extensions, hand tied wefts need maintenance every 6-8 weeks after your new install.   After a new installation, you will rotate between two services until it is time to replace the hair.  The two appointments are a push up, and a removal and re-install.  Here is a breakdown of each maintenance services for hand tied extensions.

Push Up 

Your first service after a new installation is called a “Push-Up” service.  At this appointment, we open the beads using a tool and push the wefts up so they stay close to your scalp.  After all of the extensions are moved up, we follow up with a shampoo and style.

Check out this video to see how we push up the extensions.  

Next: Remove & Reinstall

6-8 weeks after your “Push-Up” service you will return for a “Removal Reinstall” (R&R) appointment. In this service, the wefts and beads will be removed, we will then shampoo you and your hair extensions.  If you are having your color done, we do this while the extensions are out.  After, we will install new beads and secure the wefts with new string just like a new installation.

Check out this video to see how simple it is to remove hand tied extensions: 

How to take care of your extensions


Its vital to use the proper tools and products at home. A soft flexible bristle brush is recommended for detangling, paired with a leave-in conditioner, lightweight oil or moisturizing cream for the ends of your hair and the extensions to keep them moisturize and looking fresh!! Depending on how much hair is installed, up-do’s can kind of be tricky but low-do’s are attainable.

 

There is always a Price for Beauty!


The cost for hand tied extensions depends on a few things:

  1. Hair Cost depends on where your natural hair length is at, and where you want your hair to be.  Each pack of hair consist of (two) 12 inch wide wefts, with 20 inch length hair. For someone looking to add a natural bit of volume, 1 pack of hair will do.  For a dramatic addition of volume and a few inches at most of length, you will need two packs of hair.  For dramatic additions of length, you will need either 3 or 4 packs of hair, depending on how much length we are adding.
  2. Installation cost depends on how many rows of hair we need to install for your goal look.  For volume, 1-2 rows does the trick.  When adding length, you can have 2-4 rows of hand tied wefts installed.

We offer complimentary consultations, either in person or virtually over a zoom call to discuss your hair goals and give exact pricing for your desired look.

If you have any further questions on our hand tied extensions or would like to schedule a consultation, feel free to reach out! We would love to meet and talk about how to make your hair goals a reality.
