I have been in the unfortunate position to have to use hair replacement systems for many years after a chronic illness caused me to lose my hair, and, as a woman, I have not had the courage to just accept baldness. As a result I have used several hair replacement...

I am in no way "bad-mouthing" HC as they have been around for many, many years and are apparently doing something right to stay in business as long as they have.

However, I am a hairdresser of 45 years, own an individual hair replacement studio, have spent thousands of dollars on my education and I take my responsibility to that very seriously.

My clients have my cell# in case they run into a problem ( which, fortunately, rarely happens )and I have a co-worker who is my back-up in case I cannot be available. Either he or I, at any given time, have stayed late, come in early and on occasion met with a client on a Sunday when the situation called for it.

That having been said, I will go onto the hair itself.

One hair system will NEVER last 3-4 years; unless it is a full wig, the finest European hair, only worn on a daily basis and handled with the utmost of gentle care. If the hair is matting, dry and brittle it is because the processing the hair has been through was extensive. The majority of hair comes from China and India, usually good quality in its natural state, but to get that darkest brown color to a light brown or blonde takes an amazing amount of processing, which effects the hair dramatically.

As far as the system lifting off within a day or two ... all bonding material performance is predicated on body chemistry.

It is imperative upon consultation to determine maintenance routine, and lifestyle; and the prep of the scalp and system critical.

My message here is, the loss of one's hair can be a traumatic and expensive experience, in addition to the fact that the vulnerability of a client allows for unethical practices, which is why I am extremely particular about the hair I choose to sell and treat my clients with kid gloves. My advice is before you commit to anything or sign on the dotted line of any exorbitant contracts; research, research, research.

Ask questions and do not let anyone pressure you into anything that you may not be totally comfortable with. If you are considering a new studio, please feel free contact me at Alternative Hair Solutions in Charlottesville, Virginia jeanbrickwedde@gmail.com

Hair Club for men - Don't trust them.

Don't use the Hair Club they are horrible to customers, I have been a member for 6 years and their service is revolting, they have a hard time keeping managers and stylists. If you have a problem they tell you to call their Vice President Steve Stickney, but he won't return your phone calls. Don't get involved with them it is a big waste of time and money; you are better of being bald. They won't tell you up front but they will get you involved and then make you get into a monthly subscription with a one year contract. The subscriptions can range from $300 per month up to $1,000 even though you pay a lot of money they treat you like ***, since they know you are locked into a contract. Trust me they do such a bad job that you will look more ridiculous with their hair. This is the worst decision I have ever made and now I am out thousands of dollars. Call Steve yourself if you like his number is (toll free) 888-520-4636.

Almost 6 years later and this still ranks in Google...you feel deceived? you want money back?

you want some form of retribution? No one in the Hair Club family deliberately "defrauded" you. We all regret that you did not get the experience and results that many did. We wish you no suffering...no rock to roll uphill...only grace.

The Hair Club solution has benefited so many men, women, and children. Present and former employees only wish you the best.

Our collective hearts and minds were sincerely trying to help you. May you find peace, my friend.

Hair Club Procedure

HAIR CLUB, THE REGIS COMPANY

Hair Club in Puerto Rico is a rip OFF. Jennifer Sannnclemente Business advisor,never fully explain the details of the contract,she was very pleasant, nice smile courtesy but not informative,more than a advisor she is a low grade sales person. blew smoke into your eyes. got you to sign contract but we never read the fine print and from a $3,000 sign the final bill will be well over $5,000. Asked for explanation and was told that the sales person o advisor was correct also asked for a chat with the advisor and this never happen she was always very busy.

Hair Club in Dekalb, Illinois - Junk

Hair Club is a rip off.Scalp analisis should be called scam analisis because thats how they get you to come in and then dont even do one.Told me i did"nt have enough hair for it to matter and sold me on a cheap hair piece thats not manageable.They said a normal tip to stylist of 50.00 is reccomended each visit.The second of four is when they either talk you into a better hair piece for 50.00 more per month or assign you to a different stylist who is even less talented than the first.They took me for 3,695.00 with 500.00 off for signing today.The most money i have ever been taken for.They should be shut down or come clean.

There is no ethics nor integrity/honesty in hair club for men and women? they committed to doctrine of lies ,cheats,deception.one should read their contract?

is a bogus.clients don't have any right nor can suit no member of staffs.remember sales managers working on tips.they lies in ones face.if you demand refund and insists upon it they use the last article in their bogus contract citing bad behavior and harassment and you're out without advanced notice. on line hair wigs are the same if not better with it one can save thousands yearly.i did it.

I could not agree with you more! I used to be a member of HC and they not only lied to me about the hair system, they kept applying glue to make my wig stick..

Lied and said it was medical sutures but infact was hair glue. The wig wasn't even the right size, it fit like a toupee.. I found a hair replacement place in Houston that had the same wigs for 75% less!!!

They are somewhere off S.Post Oak Rd Houston Lace Wig Co.. Much better options and they accept returns.
