I Have Alopecia and Live In Kamloops
I have had alopecia for over 30 years and have worn a wig most of the time. I have tried one human hair wig over 20 years ago and have since worn synthetic wigs . As you can imagine it is difficult to find a place to actually try on wigs in BC. I live in Kamloops but do travel to the coast once in awhile. I am curious about your wigs/ systems. I realize they vary, but what sort of cost and timeline would I possibly expect? I would like more info before I plan a trip down.
Thank you for your time,
Absolutely all of our wigs/hair systems vary - all are custom made and unique to the person.
The big difference is comfort and durability as well as the natural look. We only keep one sample on hand so you can see the quality of the hair but we usually have several on hand ready for delivery if you'd like to check them out.
Maria makes a mould of your hair loss area - whether full or partial. The price depends on the area covered, the length and the density of the hair. Our systems for women typically range from $1400 to $2200 and can be expected to last for 2 or 3 years. The hair stays soft and lovely for the entire life of the hair system while after a few years the base will naturally break down (the same as a collar or sleeve of a shirt - from the body acids). The more expensive systems have very long hair. Our price is about 50% less than competitors because we don't have sales people (Maria worked for a salon where the salespeople consistently made over $100,000 per year). We also built a fully equipped, professional salon into a new home 5 years ago. It's very private and discreet. The timeline is about 6 to 8 weeks since just the hand tied hairs take 25 full days. We only use hand tied hairs since machine tied will cause damage to the hair and reduce the life of the hair system from 2 - 3 years to 4 to 6 months.
If this is affordable for you, there's no better solution. Maria has been in this business for 18 years now and is not only a great technician and fantastic hairdresser (50% of the great look you'll get out of any hair system depends on the talent of the hairdresser) but she's also a genuine person and fun to be around.
We are convenient to Kamloops and have several customers from there. You'll see our salon is easy to find from Highway #1. We have more information, photos and testimonials on our website. The testimonial regarding the girl getting married is from a delivery we did last night and she came up from Bellingham, USA to see us. There's no pressure to buy but we would love you to come for a consultation.
