    Default First system weird color situation, too scared to do it DIY, suggestions!

    Hi,

    After a year of riding the fence, shaving my little ring of hair, and growing it back... I am now actively shopping for a hair replacement.

    Because I live in Israel, and the places that do "hair systems" are extremely expensive, and very inflexible in what they are willing to do... I am considering going overseas to get my first hair system done. I have read, hear, and other places about DIY, but I am afraid of doing it for my first system.

    The main reason is color. I have a very, odd, hair color situation. My beard, sideburn, and temple hair (what is left of it) is salt & pepper, while the hair on the back of my head, is still close to my original color, of dark brown. I am hoping to get a good color consult from the salon I choose to work with.

    I was considering Turkey since there is a HUGE hair replacement industry (those dudes go bald, young), but given the current political climate, I am afraid to travel there. Also, most of what they do is black hair.

    I have switched to Europe, and have been in contact with a place in Germany, and a place in Madrid.

    I figure once I get instruction from someone, in person, I will feel confident enough to do it myself, and even try to order from an online company, once I know what I want to order.

    Any experiences with getting a hair system in Europe? Grey hair situation?

    Best,

    BB

    P.S. I do realize that I posted, before and took the information into consideration, which is why I am thinking about starting with a salon.

    Hi there. I can recommend trying the hair system route. I thought it was a joke, but its changed my life immensely.

    There are good suppliers in Spain and the USA, but I use a company in the UK. I send them a template and samples of my hair (I need a little grey too and have two shades) and its takes about 8-weeks to get something made for me. I have been using them a few years including when I was working abroad.

    I have used them for several years and find the service and units good.

    Let me know if you have more questions.

    Thanks... I will see what develops with Europe, the one salon in Madrid is going to do a video conference with me this week, and I will review the major concerns of color, and style.

    I would be interested in whom you use in the UK, as a possible supplier of systems once I get the hang of it, although the guys in Madrid are willing to do everything remotely. It's always good to have backups, and places for price comparison.
