We all want the most natural, undetectable appearance possible from our hair system. Unfortunately, many hair wearers misjudge their density level, hairline recession and/or placement of the unit.
These are common mistakes that can be easily avoided. Here's how...
Many hair wearers will order too high a density for their hair system thinking it can be thinned out later. Unfortunately this is not always the case.
Thinning out the density from a hair system will leave tiny stubble on the base which creates an unnatural, rough feel when you run your fingers through the hair. Instead, it's best to err on the side of a lighter density.
Having a disproportionate frontal hairline recession (for your age and hair style) is a common indication that you might be wearing a hairpiece.
Determining the proper recession for your hair system is a matter of following the line/pattern of where your padded facial tissue ends and your less-padded cranial tissue begins.
Finding your facial and cranial tissue is easy... Next time your hair system is off, begin by raising your eyebrows, as if your eyes are wide open. Next, closely examine the upper part of your forehead in a mirror.
It's easy to discern facial tissue from cranial tissue because you should be able to see and feel a difference in the amount of padding. Facial tissue is better padded than cranial, which has very little padding.
This is very important. Always remember the rule 3-4 fingers above your eyebrows. Hair systems have improved so much over the last few years that natural looking hairlines are easily achieved. A natural looking hairline should begin where your natural hairline begins. You should never place the front of the hair system on your frown line, that is far too low. Hair doesn't grow naturally from there. Look in a mirror and feel your head. Visually your fingers show if they’re on your forehead or at the front of your scalp. In summary, the hairline is 3-4 fingers from your eyebrow and NOT on your frown lines.
