    Whitecliffs (Australia) experience and thoughts

    Hi,

    I decided to go to a hair club (Whitecliffs) to get my first pieces and thought I'd share my experience and also thoughts on what occurred at the consultation. In no way am I affiliated with them in anyway.

    The business is ran by two blokes and I was offered a reasonable price. I told them I intend to go the DIY route and they said this was no issue.

    I was then sat down and a template was taken. What was different was that they did not draw arrows or label the actual piece itself to specify the density/direction/colour of hair and instead hair samples were taken from the back and sides of my head.

    I questioned why no directional arrows etc. were drawn on the template and they told me that this will be detailed on a specifications sheet and the style will be free style. I have a vertex where hair direction originates and spans outwards in 360 degrees and asked where this will be on the template and how can they get this right? The guy said this is how it's done and not to worry and it will be custom piece not stock.


    Then I said I'll go for the french lace and swiss lace with superfine swiss for hair line. He said that E3 monofilament was the best for undetectability and durability as he wears it (although the guy was bald at the time of the consultation saying his raising money for leukaemia). I have no idea if this is true or not, can someone comment?

    I'm going to have to wait a month before I get the units.

    I have had experience at Whitecliffs UK, and personally wouldn't go back there. I have found a much better alternative London clinic and would be happy to share.

    well i went to see them a month ago and they quoted me $1000 for two monofilament systems. Now they emailed me back saying that was a lie and that it is for $1500! They're calling me a liar basically.

    Freaking dodgy and I already paid $500 deposit.

    I had the same experience as you, I went to another hairclub type place in Australia, got a template made and gave them a deposit, I never went back.

    They pushed me to go mono and said that its best for dusrability etc.. 2 hairsystems per year is no where near enough..

    Go all sfs lace and buy online, I did. be prepared for the system to fade fast, and you gotta practice a lot, your going to stuff up at the start.

    The piece you get from a hairclub will be way too dense so that it lasts 6 months, will fade just the same, will most defiantly look like a joke, you will be back there within 3 months to get another.

    presicionhairreplacement.com is an aussie company, I have never bought from them but my next unit will be from them. just buy a stock piece, cut it out yourself and play around with it, cut the unit to size and cut the hair yourself, your not going to actually use this piece just play with it.

    thanks. i asked for a refund but these buggers are not even answering their phones or emailing back.

    conclusion: AVOID WHITECLIFFS! THEY'RE SCAMMERS
