Hair Club (formerly Hair Club for Men, or HCM) has transformed itself into a very different company than when it was formed decades ago. I think there was relatively little to complain about in the 80s and 90s compared to now.
Back then, you bought a few hair systems, about $1000 each, and they'd last and last. The hairlines weren't great, but after you bought them, you just needed a $65 service every 4 to 6 weeks. That was then.
In the 90s, more undetectable hair systems came along, and polyfuse (i.e. glue) for attachment instead of braiding the hair with your own.
But also, along came the PROGRAMS, where you paid a mortgage payment every month. The cost of an HCM hair system at least doubled, and probably tripled. At around this time, I noticed a few guys at work suddenly no longer have hair. I am sure it was HCM's new pricing.
I never went on a program, but it was definately time to check out something else. I started ordering hair online, and I learned to do the attachment, glue/tape, and even cut myself. Now I spend a few hunded dollars for the ENTIRE YEAR instead of that much in a month.
I use www.hairpiecewarehouse.com.
