In our 2nd post of the ‘Meet the Stylists’ series, our supremo hair replacement affiliate, Chris, from Manchester, reveals the passion behind the scissors!:
How long have you been in the hair replacement industry?
I’ve been in hair replacement for 8 years.
Why did you choose to specialise in hair replacement?
After seeing the synthetic NHS hairpiece my mother was given, which was extraordinarily thick and artificial looking, I felt compelled to offer an alternative.
What’s the most rewarding element of your job?
Seeing my clients brimming with happiness and emotion; and giving them their confidence back.
What do you like the least?
Hair systems can take a long time to custom-make, which some people do not understand. I often recommend a ready-made stock system for anyone looking for hair in a hurry!
What’s the one thing customers could do to make your job a little easier?
I urge all customers to book their appointments in advance and to understand it can take up to two hours to do the initial fitting to achieve an invisible finish.
What words of advice do you have for anyone considering hair replacement?
Go for it, it’s life changing. It’s never permanent, so you can change your mind at any time.
What advice would you give seasoned hair system wearers?
Try to budget your money monthly as a regular outgoing, this ensures you have a regular new hair system that’s in optimal condition.
Which is your favourite hair system to work with?
Swiss Lace (see before & after photo below – click to enlarge) or Polyurethane foundation with excellent quality hair.
When you’re not in the salon, what do you get up to?
Spending quality time with my wife; clay shooting, scuba diving, going to the gym, and Spanish lessons.
