'Shop' around to find the best hair stylist
We've had a warning that many hair stylists are taking advantage of hair wearers by charging excessive rates for cutting in partial and full cap systems. One customer said he was quoted a staggering £160 just to cut in his partial system. For a trained stylist that is only a 40 minute job at the most.
At the end of the day what is a hair system? It's hair replacement but should cutting it in be so expensive? No it shouldn't. Of course you're going to pay a bit more than a normal haircut, as the stylist has to cut the system hair to blend in with the client's natural growing hair.
For someone not involved in hairdressing this would seem a very difficult task - although some clients do cut their systems in themselves using scissors or products such as Robocut, which uses a vacumm system to cut hair. However, this method is often used when the system has already been cut-in and you're trimming hair around the sides and back. A vacuum product can be used to cut in a partial (never a full cap), but it's always better to seek out a professional hair stylist.
Partial and full cap systems will usually be shipped to you with a hair length of six inches - unless you have specifically asked for a longer or shorter length.
We strongly advise against you cutting it yourself. If you make a mistake and chop too much off, you're stuck with it like that. Obviously unlike living growing hair, it won't grow back! Other hair system companies will suggest that they cut the hair in with you absent. That's like cutting hair with a blind-fold on and is not recommended. Even by using photographs of your head, you're unlikely to get a right cut.
You're best off finding a local barber or hairdresser who will do the job for you. Choosing a small corner shop barber may be preferential. Tell them you have a hair system you want them to cut in and they may arrange an appointment outside normal opening hours.
