Hair system base materials and designs
The term 'base design’ describes the configuration of materials used to construct the hair system foundation, i.e. the base layer the hair is attached to. The three main hair system base materials are:
We can make a hair system with one of the materials above, or configure the design to incorporate a combination of the each material to suit your specific requirements. Please see the "hair systems" section to view the options available.
Lace Hair Systems
The lace base systems have long been Hollywood’s best kept secret! Can you think of any well-known bald Hollywood movie stars that have appeared in films with hair? Have you ever been amazed at how incredible their hair looks? Now you can enjoy these same remarkable results
The materials used to make the lace hair system have been refined over the years and are widely used today by many of Hollywood's leading male actors, both on and off screen.
This innovative and undetectable lace hair system was once the reserve of the rich and famous, but together with our industry partners, Hair Hub have developed a product comparable in quality to that found on multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster sets.
The lace base is the lightest and most breathable hair system available. It is also our most undetectable system by touch. The lace base is constructed using an extremely delicate, flesh toned lace. Placed against the skin the lace becomes invisible rendering an extremely natural hairline and scalp appearance.
Unlike many other hair replacement systems, the lace is so fine and coloured like your natural skin, it allows you to expose the hairline and create any hair style; including hair spiked up at the front or brushed straight back.
There are, however, some drawbacks to the lace system. In particular, there is a trade-off between durability and undetectability. The lace base is more delicate compared to some of the other hair system options available, so they will require replacement more frequently (typically every 3-4 months).
There a many different design configurations for the lace hair system. For more information on the lace base options available, please click here.
Skin hair systems
The skin hair systems have proved a very popular choice with our clients. Our skin systems are constructed using a proprietary blend of ultra thin polymers to create a feather light translucent membrane that allows your scalp to show through the base – this renders a natural scalp appearance, creating an exquisite illusion of the hair appearing to grow directly out of the scalp.
Individual hairs, strand-by-strand, are implanted into a skin-like membrane, each at scientifically predetermined angles to replicate the density and growth patterns of your original head of hair. The skin system is so thin, many of our clients refer to it as a “second skin”, which provides a completely seamless integration with your scalp, so it’s undetectable by both sight and touch.

Monofilament hair systems
The monofilament base is the most durable in our range, which offers an economical choice that represent excellent value for money.
This is a more traditional base material that has been popular for many years due to its strength and durability. This base can last for well over a year due to the thicker monofilament used in its construction.
This additional durability does come with its drawbacks – as a result of the thicker materials incorporated into this design, under close inspection, it’s not the most natural and undetectable system. That said, if your hair density is sufficient to cover the base (medium or above), then it will still look perfectly natural and will prove a viable and economical option. However, if you prefer a lighter density that exposes some scalp, the lace or skin bases may be a more suitable option.
