    How easy should it be to comb the hair back to expose the hairline on a freestyle direction hair system?

    I've had a few hair systems now - several stock systems, and 1 custom system - all of which were Swiss lace, medium-light density with freestyle hair direction. Although I don't expose the hairline fully for my style (I wear it in a central parting), I have tried experimenting with combing the...

    Early mistakes and lessons learned!

    Yes it's a great method. To line up the front, I leave a bit of my bio hair unshaved on the hairline and line the system up with that (or you can put a mark with an eyebrow pencil where the edge of your hairline is). As I wear my hair in a central parting, I can use this as a guide too - if it...

    Early mistakes and lessons learned!

    A better method is to put the tape on the lace but don't peel off the backing, then position the system where you want and use an Alice band to keep it in place. This leaves both hands free to peel off the backing for the tape at the back, which can then be stuck down. You can then take off the...

    Early mistakes and lessons learned!

    Lol - did anyone on the coach notice? Yes, it certainly is a learning curve. My first system was finished within a month or so too.

    Wearing a hair system because it's better quality hair than your bio hair

    One thing that's occurred to me since I started wearing hair systems is that they can be better quality hair than your own real hair. Most people wear hair systems due to balding, receding and thinning hair, but what they don't mention is that hair systems can actually give you better quality...

    Can we use women's Lace Hair Systems?

    Does plucking the hairline to thin it out and make it look more realistic remove the hair right down to the knots, or just the hairs?

    Making your own graduated density hairline on a system?

    Thanks, I'll look it up. Curtis also has a video on plucking the hairline too. I don't know why hairlines often aren't graduated enough, even on custom systems. How is the hairline on your custom system from HairHub?

    Making your own graduated density hairline on a system?

    Thanks, yes these women - black women especially - seem to be experts with hairpieces, don't they? I will try the tweezer method for plucking the hairline to make it look more realistic. I was wondering - when we remove hairs from the hairline with tweezers, does it take out the roots/knots of...

    "That's your real hair today though, isn't it?"

    Yeah, I think if you get a hair system attached for the first time then hang around your friends, family and work colleagues, and nobody seems to notice a thing, no weird looks at your hair etc, no comments (apart from the odd 'have you had your hair cut/restyled' etc), then you know you're on...

    "That's your real hair today though, isn't it?"

    If it's just casual sex or casual dating, in my opinion there's no need to tell anyone anything about you wearing hair. A long term relationship is another matter, especially if you end up living together.

    "That's your real hair today though, isn't it?"

    Yeh, that was basically what happened when I went back to work after I got my first system. I got it attached during the Christmas holidays and in the new year I went back to work with the system on. Some people just said 'oh you've had a hair cut' and 'nice hair, looks good', etc and then it...

    I'm about to start my journey, and I need some tips...

    HairHub currently charge £295 for a custom system, which is not bad at all. I think I had to pay a little extra for longer hair, but it was not significantly more. The only issue is their delivery times being quite long due to Covid, but I am hoping they will deliver faster now. Swiss lace is...

    Making your own graduated density hairline on a system?

    Has anyone bought a hair system with too dense a hairline and then made it graduated density themselves? I wonder if it's easy to do. Obviously it's better to buy a system with a proper graduated density hairline, but is it possible to DIY it too? I know how to thin out the density of hair...

    Can we use women's Lace Hair Systems?

    I'm about to start my journey, and I need some tips...

    They're not that difficult to maintain. I wear a long hair system. In my experience, tangles aren't a problem if 1) you have a good quality long hair system, 2) you tie it up in a pony tail when going to bed, 3) you brush it with a detangling brush with some spray in leave-in conditioner...
