Hair Loss FAQ

At On Stage, we create superior quality hair systems in the New Orleans area using 100% natural remy human hair. Our hair systems are designed to replicate the look of your own growing hair. Far from being a one-size-fits-all wig or an ill-fitting hairpiece, our hair replacement options are state-of-the-art hair loss solutions. Your style is instantly restored with a customized look designed specifically for you and not mass-produced by an overseas factory. A wealth of natural hair colors, textures, lengths, and wave patterns can be expertly combined to provide a hair restoration option that will precisely match and blend with your natural existing hair. Our hair systems are created with high standards for a completely undetectable look. They are designed to withstand windy days and vigorous lifestyle, so you can confidently live your life to the fullest without worrying about your hair!

What is the difference between a custom-made hair system and a wig or hairpiece from a wig shop?
The differences can vary, but the most important difference is quality. A customized hair system from our New Orleans hair replacement experts begins with an in-depth personal consultation. We discuss the issues behind your hair loss, conduct a thorough hair and scalp analysis, and then measure your head or hair loss area. Our artistic specialists then use a lengthy process to carefully create a hair replacement system that is designed strand by strand to blend perfectly with the color of your skin and scalp and to replicate the density, color, and texture of your existing hair. The system is designed so expertly that it is undetectable.
A wig or hairpiece from the local wig shop, on the other hand, is generally a one-size-fits all product that is mass produced in a factory by employees that you will never meet. It will not have the same comfort, precise fit, or undetectable results as a custom hair system.

What styles are available for a hair system?
You are limited only by your imagination. The beauty of our hair systems is that so many possibilities are available. By combining different hair colors, lengths, and textures, we can match your existing hair color or go a little lighter or darker. If you would like a bit of gray added at the temples or mixed throughout this can be done as well. You can have a hair system completely customized to match your style and preferences. When you are ready for a new hair system, our hair loss specialists can create a match for your existing system or we can go a different route and design a completely new look. Hair systems can be developed to work with your changing image.

Is a non-surgical hair replacement system better than a hair transplant?
Yes, a hair replacement system is almost always a better option for our clients than a hair transplant. Hair transplants and surgical hair replacement are only successful in a small percentage of cases. In order for surgical hair replacement to be successful, a person must have an ample amount of healthy hair that can serve as transplant or “donor” hair. These areas of healthy hair are generally found at the sides and back of the head. During surgical hair replacement procedures, the hair is removed from these healthy donor areas and transplanted to areas of baldness or thinning hair. If a client does not have a sufficient amount of healthy hair, then surgical hair transplants are not an option.

And while surgical hair replacement can transplant hair in a bald spot, it cannot protect against future additional hair loss around the transplant area. This can be a problem for men or women who may continue to experience hair loss in the months and years following the transplant. Surgical hair replacement provides a temporary solution, but it does not fix the problem permanently. A hair system is the best option even if you are a candidate for surgical hair replacement, because you won’t have to worry about future thinning hair or balding areas around the transplant area.

Is a hair system securely attached, or will it fall off if I work out or if I’m outdoors on a windy day?
Hair systems of today are very advanced. The hair systems that we create for our New Orleans clients are customized to fit precisely and are incredibly secure. You can live your life to the fullest without fear of losing your hair. You can jog, workout, go on a white water rafting trip, and pursue your normal daily hobbies and activities with the confidence that your hair will stay in place.

Will anyone know that my hair system is not my real hair?
At On Stage, we create state of the art systems that are designed to be undetectable. The base is a light-weight, flexible, breathable structure that is developed to blend with your scalp and skin color. Our specialists carefully select natural human hair that will match your existing hair color, texture, and wave pattern. It will appear as if the hair is growing out of your scalp.

Can my hair system change as I age?
Yes. As you age, we can adjust your hair system so that it looks believable. This can include adding gray, changing the base color to match your skin tone, adjusting the thickness and density, and other factors.
