AFTER INTENSIVE TRAINING, PRACTICE & RESEARCH, I AM PROUD TO BE ONE OF THE FEW EXTENSION SPECIALISTS IN THE MIDLANDS TO OFFER A COMPLETELY CUSTOM HAIR INTEGRATION SERVICE TO WOMEN WHO ARE SUFFERING WITH HAIR LOSS, THINNING, OR WHO ARE UNABLE TO HAVE THE STANDARD METHODS OF HAIR EXTENSIONS FITTED.
WHAT IS HAIR LOSS?
There are many reasons for hairloss or thinning hair among women of all ages. The following causes are usually good candidates for a hair integration system.
Auto Immune Disorder
Hereditary Hair Loss
Post Partum Hair Loss
Age Related Thinning/Loss
As a hair professional with many years experience, I recognised that hair loss is very upsetting and can result in a lack of confidence & self esteem. Earlier on in my career there were so many women that even as a hair extension specialist, I was unable to help. With this in mind, I decided to undergo 2 years of training & practical experience using my knowledge of hair & extensions, plus the guidance & training of some of the best hair integration specialists to become one of the few salons in the UK to specialise in fully customised, yet affordable hair integration systems.
WHAT IS A HAIR INTEGRATION SYSTEM?
A Hair integration system is a semi-permanent alternative to wearing a wig. It offers a fantastic solution to clients looking for something they can wear day in and day out without the hassle, discomfort & inconvenience of wearing a wig, whilst having the added benefit of it being unnoticeable. Almost any style, colour or length can be achieved. Whether you would like something natural looking, or maybe long, thick luscious locks or maybe just a little enhancement to cover some thinning. My bespoke systems can achieve what you are looking for.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In most instances, a custom made mesh system is used to create a secure 'false' scalp in order to attach hair enhancements to create the look. The mesh is completely breathable and hypoallergenic to ensure the most comfortable fit. Your natural hair, however sparce is pulled through the mesh to give the illusion of a natural scalp with free flowing hair. In instances where there is no natural hair then a bespoke method is used. As a salon our ethos is to look after our clients natural hair and to encourage hair growth underneath any system or when wearing hair extensions. We do not use any glues or adhesives or bonding agents anywhere on natural hair.
HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY NEW HAIR?
There are no limitations when wearing a hair integration system. They can be washed, styled and treated the same as your natural locks. All the hair used in my systems are the highest quality human hair available. You can gym, swim & go on holiday proudly wearing your hair. The only difference is I will recommend certain products & provide you with aftercare advice for optimal results. The one thing I make all my clients aware of is that a system isnt a fit and go! You will need to schedule regular maintenance appointments for both your system and natural hair/scalp to be checked, and for your system to be realigned & on occasion removed and refitted.
All clients will be required to have a 30 minute consultation prior to booking in for hair integration. This is a 1-2-1 private appointment in relaxed & informal settings. During this appointment I will assess your hair and scalp & will ask questions about your hair and any conditions you have been diagnosed with. If you have any pictures of how you would like your hair to look then please bring these along, if you have no idea then thats fine, I can help! Also, if you have any questions it is usually a good idea to write them down prior. It is a fairly in depth consultation and I usually cover most common questions but please feel free to ask away!
HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?
Consultation is £20. Should you decide to go ahead, this cost will be deducted from your final bill.
Costs for fitting a system start at £350 to £1800
Maintenance appointments are from £80
WHY CHOOSE MYCHELLE CAROLINE?
I have over 16 years hair and haircare experience, most of which has been specifically within hair extensions and enhancements. I have trained specifically in the hairloss sector & understanding the different types of hairloss and how they work. My experience & training has allowed me to develop a method of hair integration that can be adapted and customised for all clients. Before commencing any work on real clients I undertook 2 years of training specifically in hair integration. I am aware that more and more 'integration specialists' have popped up recently, this is mainly due to online learning during lockdown, practicing on mannequin heads. Whilst this is a great way to learn, I pride myself on experience and also many happy clients. If you would like to see any examples of work, I regularly post on instagram
