British Columbia's Premier Hair Replacement Centre

This client cancelled her appointment but subsequently purchased a wig from another source to save the 6 - 8 weeks delivery time. Afterwards she rebooked wih us as she found the wig she purchased to be too "wiggy" looking and very uncomfortable. This story has a happy ending as we delivered a system to her that she is extremely happy with. Now she knows from personal experience the difference between a wig and a hair system.

Here is the exchange:

I have been thinking about our phone conversation.  I need the wig now 
not 6 weeks from now so I am going to cancel my appointment on  Jan.10 
at 10a.m. Thankyou for your time.  Marg

Hi Marg;

I understand your predicament - You most likely would like to have a wig 
for Christmas and your Las Vegas trip.
As you have alopecia, you will likely want a hair system you can wear 
for extended periods.
If you haven't worn wigs before, you won't know the difference in 
comfort and "look" until you start wearing them.
There are two wig stores in Vancouver that we recommend for high quality 
pieces: Abantu on Kingsway and Eva & Co. on West Broadway. You should be 
able to purchase a good wig - machine made, for $300 to $500. There are 
also some good wig stores in Las Vegas.
If you wear the wig daily, it should last 3 to 4 months and still look 
Here's the difference you'd find with our hair system:
- Best quality human hair (we would explain the difference in quality 
but it has to do with the processing and number of cuticles retained in 
the processing). The better the quality, the longer the hair will last - 
look and feel soft and natural.
- Hand tied (this is what takes so long). Each hair is specially 
knotted. The frontal hairs have "baby" type hair knotted so that the 
hair system is undetectable from anyone viewing close up at the front. 
Back hairs are knotted with stronger knots for strength and top hairs 
use a special knot so that they appear to be growing from your scalp.
- The base is designed to fit your head only. We make a mold of your 
head and the wigmaster builds the base on this mold so that it 
eliminates air pockets which trap heat, moisture and bacteria. This is 
why our systems are so comfortable and have none of the "bulkiness" 
associated with wigs.
- Our prices include "cut-in" plus any colouring to your own hair so 
that you do not pay any additional charges after the order.
- The hair system will last 2 to 3 years and will look lovely the entire 

I would recommend that you still see us after you purchase your wig so 
that you can know the difference between what we provide and what a wig 
is limited to.

I'll go ahead and cancel your appointment. Still hope to see you though.

Our Clients Say:

 Hi Maria and Brian,

I have been meaning to write a review since I got my system a few weeks ago but I have been so swamped and did not want to write just a line... 

About 2 years ago my husband brought to my attention I believe an advert on Maria Jaggard's salon and hair loss solutions. I contacted Maria and Brian via email and asked a few questions but never followed up with an appointment until early this year when I booked an appointment and went for an evaluation. It was an enlightening appointment and I decided to give the hair system a try. I was anxious and somewhat sceptical as I waited for the delivery of my system and when I got the call that it was in I was afraid of going to have it fitted since I thought it would not be what I hoped it would be and at the back of my mind I had fears that I might hate it and be disappointed which would mean a total waste of money. Maria had done a good job of explaining the frontal lace but not being a hair dresser I just could not understand how it would be natural... 

I got my custom made hair system probably 2 months ago and I must commend Maria and Brian for there excellent customer service - I perceive myself as a perfectionist and one not easy to please yet they were both very patient and made my hair system colour and cut to my specifications, they are amazing.  From the day after I got the hair system the compliments have been flying right left and centre with descriptions ranging from "your hair cut is very flirty and sexy" to "you look absolutely amazing and the colour  of your hair is amazing". Like a lot of people until you hear the compliments from people who have no vested interest in issuing the compliments it is hard to appreciate a good thing. My fear and concern that people would notice it was a system was unfounded. I am very pleased with my system and I am enjoying my new found look everyday. I would tell any skeptics out there who have hair issues and are apprehensive about trying a hair system, to put their fears aside and go for it - I should have done it sooner. 

Thanks guys!
