Post: RE: Taking the step on 1st Dec

I don't see much of a point in doing a full head bond with a full cap, but I do recommend using extra tape or adhesive on the top, back and sides of your scalp to help keep the unti from sliding aroun...

I am a little bit confused but it seems like your hair is thinning at the very front and in the back? You can order a hairpiece in any size or shape you want. Your sides seem to be good so I don't ...

If your template is very accurate and you aren't trying to pull off a crazy short style you should be ok with a remote cut-in for a full cap. The problems would likely come in if you were to need to d...

Actually, cameras tend to accentuate flaws and a hairpiece often looks better in person than it does in a picture. That said, I agree with topcat. If you need something that is not detectible to any...
