The Game Changer

0

Weaves have taken the millennium by storm for the last couple of years from women boasting about having inches, curly hair, closures and the most popular frontals. But get this, frontals have changed the game and not only for women but also for men. This new trend is what some people may even consider life changing.

Since the beginning of time men have been suffering from permanent hair loss. Losing your hair can put a huge damper on anyone’s self-esteem. Hair gives most people a feeling of youth but losing it can make people feel old and played out. Well I have just the phrase you need, “cranial prosthesis”.

Cranial prosthesis, also known as hair replacement units, hair systems and most recently men weaves, are the way to go. It is a process that allows men who are balding to add human hair with adhesive. These new men weaves can be cut and customized to exactly whatever style is desired.

While these men weaves may look super natural and appealing they do come with one side effect, ITCHY, ITCHY, ITCHY. Before getting a hair replacement one should do their research or even consult a dermatologist about possible skin reactions. Men weaves are for men of all races and ages so it’s important to keep in mind that we all have different skin. Also, what may look hot and stylish on one person may not work for the next person. Consult with your stylist or barber about what look fits you best.

Now for the part that we are all curious about. If a woman’s weave costs anywhere from $150 to $1,000 dollars, depending on the quality of the hair, how much is the weave for the men costing. They say you pay for what you want right, so keep an open mind. Hair replacements for men can cost anywhere from $275 to $800 dollars which includes the hair, install and special custom styling. That’s not bad when your self-esteem just jumped from 50 percent to 100 percent.

Talk to your stylist or barber and let them educate you about this 90 minute to 2-hour process that could be a game changer. Add back years of youth and self-esteem to your life. Everybody deserves a chance to be happy so contact a stylist closest to you and go get your “Happy Piece”.
