Hair Replacement System Ordering Guide
There are three steps you will take to receive your unstoppably good hair from Bixby Wells Brand:
Step 1: Choose Your Base
Whether you're new to wearing hair systems or a current user, you can select from 5 popular base designs based on durability and appearance.
HAIR SYSTEM SIZES
Standard base size is 8" x 10" with a finished hair length of 6 inches. Covers the hair loss area on top of the head from the front hairline to the crown.
Base size is between 8" x 10" and 10" x 10" with a finished hair length of 6 inches. Covers the head from the front hairline to the back of the head. The hair loss area extends further down the side and back of the head.
Base size over 10" x 10" with a finished hair length of 6 inches. Provides complete coverage of the scalp for men who have complete hair loss.
Full Lace Base (French or Swiss)
The advantage of this type of base design is that it’s very light in weight making it very comfortable. When you place the unit against your scalp this delicate lace becomes completely invisible and creates an undetectable natural appearance
Lace Front Base
Lace Front Bases are ideal for people who want appearance but without sacrificing durability. This type of bases are also undetectable in front, but not as comfortable as full lace bases. The maintenance is lower than full lace bases since it is easy to clean.
The translucent membrane allows the scalp color to show through, which renders an exquisite illusion of the hair emerging from the scalp. Easy cleanup, removal, and attachment.
Step 2: Pick Your Hair Texture, Hair Color and Gray Hair Percentage
From a tight curly afro texture to loose curly afro textures made especially for Black and Afro Latino men, we have great choices for helping you create the perfect head of hair.
Remy Human Hair
Remy hair is cut from one donor head and tagged “root to tip”. The cuticle is created by careful processing to keep the cuticle layer of the hair in place, resulting in a natural feel.
Hair density is the amount of hair strands on the head. It is measured by counting the number of hair strands found in one square inch (2.5cm) of scalp. When a stylist tells you that you have thick hair, it is high density he or she is describing. Generally, the classifications of hair density are thin, medium, and thick, and are unrelated to the texture of the hair. The average head has approximately 2,200 strands of hair per square inch, and a total of approximately 100,000 hairs.
Different levels of Hair Density
- Extra light (50%) hair density is very thin and usually seen on older men.
- Light (80%) hair density is a very light and reveals the scalp when parted.
- Medium light (100%) hair density is more commonly seen on men in general. It's natural looking with a standard amount of volume.
- Medium (120%) hair density is more commonly seen on younger men.
- Medium heavy (140%) hair density is seen on men in their twenties and thirties.
- Heavy (160%) hair density is usually used to create a theatrical wig.
