    See link above...

    I feel better already... Still debating if it looks convincingly real though... I feel some may suspect its definitely not...
    It was a stock piece... I think my custom pieces with be better fitted next time

    I go in every 2 weeks to the salon to have it maintenanced...

    Its very light, doesn't feel like anything is bonded to my head
    I will be honest. Its ok, but more photos of it would help. The one I saw, I'm still in 2 minds on the hairline.

    At the end of the day, $5000 is way too much regardless of how many systems or cuts. I pay $375 per unit and each one lasts 6-months minimum.

    Honestly is always appreciated....

    $5000 for 6 systems is a ton I agree... However its my first year using systems and its a busy time for me at the moment... Don't really have time for the self maintenance which can take several minutes if not hours everyday (especially for a beginner like me.... I'll learn the basics here and then maybe in a year I'll switch to the online attachments.. Time=money, especially when you work in sales like I do



    Still debating weather it looks convincingly real.

    Went back to the salon and they cut me a new system because I was paranoid that the first one was too dense and full on the hairline for a natural look.

    This one allowed for some natural recession and I think it looks natural and is a much more cleaner convincing look.

    Lace/hairline on this one is really well disguised especially considering this is what I looked like before

    Feels good to do something about my agonizing premature hairloss that doesn't involve surgury or drugs for once..

    Let me know what you think

    Definitely an improvement the second go. Looks more natural and hard to tell its not real :-)

    Do you have any photos of the hairline

    Hair systems really do work. I've been wearing a while now and its changed my life.

    Thanks man!

    http://s1288.photobucket.com/user/jr...tml?state=copy

    Hair line is well disguised...

    Hopefully they help change my life too...

    The hair loss thing has been extremely detrimental to the quality of my life the past 18 months... Only 25 yrs old, especially because its happened so young.

    The meds and Hair transplant failed for me... I look awful with a shaved head and have a significantly receding hairline.

    This is it...

    If it makes me feel good and gives me a natural appearence. Even if I am overpaying at $5000-$8000 a year... They still include all the services and what not and I go in every 2 weeks for removal and maintenance for no extra charge... (Tips not included)

    I work in sales so if I feel better about myself, I'm going to make more money so it all compensates..

    That looks really good man congrats. May I ask what the name of the place your going is? I would like to look into one around my area. My hair doesn't look bad right now but maybe if I switch early and keep a high hairline placement no one will notice?

    Appreciate it man!

    Its called MHN hair restoration in NYC.... It looks good and everyone I know personally keeps telling me it looks completely real which has been amazing (If I bring up the topic)... My confidence has been restored, especially when going out at night

    I will however say, I'm still getting over the initial anxiety of wearing a piece and being discovered during the daytime when it is bright outside.... I'm naturally a neurotic anxious guy, so it could all be in my head... If someone is looking above my eyes (especially some bald people who are obviously more conscious of hairlines, then the anxiety really kicks in.... Aside from that its been great and if someone asked out of speculation I would probably say I had some work done or something, no big deal...

    They could definitely customize a high hairline look.... Its in NYC and is an expensive salon I will warn you.... Be prepared to shell out $5000-6000 bucks annually if not more.... However all the maintenance and fees are inclusive... I go in every 2 weeks and get it maintenanced for no additional fees aside from the tip I give to the stylist... You get what you pay for... Otherwise I'm sure they're cheaper salons or you could buy from online companies like Northwest Lace.... I personally shelled out $500 for partial piece from Coolpiece.com (cut-in, template price included) and it looked like a dead rat on my head, not to mention you have to do all the maintenance yourself which is extremely time consuming and requires a lot of patience at first... If your willing to put up with that than thats great for you.... Time is money, you get what you pay for... I've played sports, ran and sweated quite a bit and have had no issues... Doesn't feel like anything is attached to my head.... However when it gets really hot out we'll see if that changes

    Overall I would definitely prefer this than surgery or running around with a severely receding hairline or bald head, especially because I am so young

    So I've been wearing this piece for 2 weeks now and I'm finally getting used to it... It doesn't feel like there is anything on my head... I've been sweating and playing lots of sports and it hasnt been an issue... I sleep in it as well with no discomfort. I live in NYC and get it serviced and cleaned every 2 weeks at a salon... I get it replaced with a new one every 2 months... Its much easier with the ladies now as it has greatly reduced my anxiety and it obviously looks good..The hair just feels frizzy the way it would if you put a lot of style gel in it... Its an easy excuse if a girl runs her hands through it to just say you put hair gel in it.... Havent gotten laid in the past couple weeks but i've been meeting lots of girls and have been going on many dates, so likely soon. Its bonded with a superglue so theres no way it could fall off.. If you tried to tear it off, there would likely be a lot of blood involved... All is well so far and I can't complain... The only condition is that its a really high quality piece and with the maintenance and all, I'll be spending about 5-6K a year on it.... Not to mention when it gets rediculously hot during the summers, I wonder if it will detach easier or cause other problems.... Either way I am very content with it so far..

    Bottom line:
    If you can afford it and the balding issue has affected you as severely as it has me the past 18 months than I would strongly recommend doing this.... It may have changed my life for the better, we'll see... Feeling really great at the moment... I'll Checking off this forum for a bit... Hope you can all find a solution to your hair loss woes... I know how much it sucks and am finally glad to have found a way to relieve the anxiety and stress it brings for the time being..

    If you do not live in a major city you can try the online companies... The problem is you have to learn to attach, deattach and the maintenance all by yourself which can be extreemly time consuming.... Up to you though.. Good luck...

    Research carefully, alot of salonists and some online companies will rip you off..

    Dont do Hair Club for men either.. They will rip you off... Go find a family owned salon who values their customers and has excellent service... They rely on repeat business and will treat as well as anyone can
