How realistic is an eMPower Hair system? I see great photos of your hair system, and they look great. In real life, do they REALLY look like your own hair? I have tried hair
replacement in the past, but it has not been good.
We get this asked a lot as our clients look incredible as any hair replacement provider should.
Yes, our eMPower Hair System in real life is amazing and cannot be detected at all. In fact, as
we promise, our front hairline is the world's first that is totally natural and looks like the hair is
growing out of your scalp! None of our client photos have ever been touched in any way, and
you only have to come in and see in person what we can do--never with any pressure to
purchase. Also, leading celebrities use eMPower Hair products. Finally, we warranty all of our
products under the eMPower Hair Promise--so we stand behind what we do in hair replacement,
hair improvement and hair loss. Our products can and do improve and even change the lives of
hair replacement client and those with hair loss... we see this everyday.
I am a female in my 30's losing my hair (like my Mother), but feel embarrassed about having hair replacement. Is this common?
Yes. Mostly because our society has not brought hair loss into the open as an acceptable topic. In the not so distant past, movies, comedians, etc. have all used being bald as a joke. The medical community also have viewed baldness as vanity, and those experiencing it as "whiners" or being too emotional. Also, the use of "wigs" has never been seen as a natural thing to do. But, with the rise of self-improvement and the Technology to deal with hair loss and hair problems of any type, it is now seen as perfectly acceptable for a man or woman to want to deal with these—proactively and directly. Great hair means a so many positive things such as increased self-confidence, a better life, or feeling better about yourself to most people.
These cultural realities have changed radically with our generation of our eMPower Hair
Systems that are not "wigs"... they are permanent, like a second skin, don't come off (except once a month to re-attach), and you sleep, swim, run, go to the gym ,and just enjoy life with basically your "own" hair. You can gel, put your hair back, and do anything with our hair systems... even your sweat comes through the pores.
Finally, if you would rather try and re-grow your hair, that also is done with complete warranty.
Both our in-house programme and our hair re-growth kits are led by USA-FDA approved
products as well as our own nutrients and detoxifiers... and as we said they are backed by our
famed eMPowering You Promise™. Come in and have a totally private, free consultation and let us listen to what you may want and then show you what we can do. With eMPower Hair's technology, hair loss of any type can be solved easily and not cost the moon—all it takes is that first step to come and see how we can help you. Today's mantra is "don't let hair loss or hair problems rob you of 1 minute of enjoying your life... it can be fixed easily."
Is it possible to have hair added a bit at a time, so no one can notice that you are having something done. I do want to walk into work one day without hair and the next day with a full head of it-- I would be ridiculed?
A very good question. No one ever wants friends or colleague, even family, to know they have
had or are having hair replacement. In the UK it seems to be a bad word. I personally can't figure out why, as hair is a wonderful and life-changing thing to have (no matter where it comes from).
But, we live in a world where certain types of self-improvement are not openly admitted-- it
looks like you have a weakness. This especially seems true for those who are overweight and
those with hair loss. The good news is that our society is rapidly changing- we live in a society
where Breast surgery and face lifts are so common they are being accepted as being normal parts of self-improvement. So, hair replacement is going the same way... but, some still want it secret... and that is no problem. Over the last few years, eMPower Hair has spent large amounts of resources perfecting its PHASES™ programme: whereby we replace or add hair is such a special manner that no one can tell you have had hair replacement. Everything is done in carefully planned stages, so the results are minimal, but gradually over a planned time increase.
Usually, co-workers think you have lost weight or had transplants--that you look better or
younger. The idea is that you can still self-improve and enjoy life, but without fear of anyone
Can hair replacement be a good substitute for surgery?
Yes! Indeed, our eMPower Hair Systems are the closest thing to getting your hair back... hair
loss is indeed taken care of. hair systems are not wigs and breathe like your own skin, never
move, are totally undetectable, and give you a perfect front hairline... you can swim, run, go to
the gym, sleep, shower, and live in every way with a eMPower Hair system. All you have to do
is come in once a month to have your hair cleaned and re-attached in a normal salon appointment (like going for a haircut)... and you are back on the road to life.
What is the best thing about eMPower Hair?
The fact that we offer the world's best Warranty... it cannot be beaten in our opinion. eMPower Hair stands behind everything that we do... But we have many things we are proud of- mostly we love our clients and want to make their lives better in every way.
Can I use hair gel and products on a eMPower Hair System?
Absolutely. eMPower Hair Systems, as well as all of our products, are made from the highest
quality human hair and allow you to use any normal product you wish for shampooing, styling,
shaping, etc. so long as they do not contain bleach, abrasives, harsh chemicals or heat which also would damage your real hair.
What makes eMPower so Trustworthy?
We stand behind our products and services. We believe we are the ONLY brand in the world offering this for hair systems. We call is the "eMPowering You Promise". And our track record which is the best anywhere, worldwide. We actually care about our customers!
Do you feel you are wearing a hair system on your head? Like a hat?
That depends. I can only speak about eMPower Hair systems. In their case NOT AT ALL! If
you are entirely new to hair replacement, during your first weeks of "having hair again" you may notice that something is on your head- only natural as you may have been without hair for years and not used to wind blowing your hair around, etc. After a week or two, it all disappears, and your hair becomes part of you... and you look forward to feeling that great sensation of the wind blowing your hair around.
Where is eMPower Hair brand headquartered?
The style capital of the world London... UK. We are a proud UK brand and company.
Will a system damage my real existing hair?
A eMPower Hair system definitely will never damage any remaining hair- they are designed to
work with your existing hair (if you have any) and allow hair underneath to breathe, get cleaned,
and grow. The adhesives we use are all medically approved, are breathable, and hypo-allergenic and will not interfere in any way with your remaining hair's growth.
I have alopecia totalis and wonder what happens if my hair grows back.
We monitor your hair condition each time you come to see us for a re-groom every 3 weeks or
month. This allows us to check for hair growth, and to see the general condition of your scalp. If
we see significant re-growth we will make you aware of it. Your system allows for some hair
growth underneath, hence, you can slowly grow back your natural hair under your eMPower Hair System (eventually "grow out" of the system) so no one notices the change.
What is the number one thing to look for regarding hair replacement?
TRUST! Honest and integrity are part of this also. Any hair replacement provider must always
place trust at the top of their offerings to their customers and the world around them. We are in the business of improving people's lives, as hair is much more than just something on your head.
Sadly, the industry, like any other, has its share of money-first operators that can cause more
pain than one can imagine to the vulnerable. People who have hair loss can often feel depressed and vulnerable, and are often looking for hope. So, look for a long-term provider that puts trust and its customers' well-being first: Each of us being hair loss sufferers, I believe at eMPower Hair we put Trust and Customers first- Always.
How are Hair Systems different to wigs and hairpieces?
Wigs are unrealistic and without a front hairline. They are hot, don't breathe, make your head sweat, do not blend in with your remaining hair, and the fronts cannot be exposed for fear of looking like fake hair.
"Hair Systems" are virtually undetectable to both sight and touch and are manufactured with the highest quality human hair available. eMPower Hair systems are undetectable, breathable, and become part of your hair- they blend in. You can swin, run, shower, and literally live in them for up to a month before they are removed for grooming (like a typical hair salon visit). Our systems also are famed for the front where it appears as though the hair is growing right out of your scalp. Also, with a system (unlike a wig) you can create any hairstyle you wish including those that allow you to comb your hair back and away from your face exposing your entire hairline. This system stays on your head and is not taken on and off like a wig, nor is it unsightly and unrealistic looking like hairpieces of old. No one will be able to tell looking at you that it is not your own hair! Above all, you can live your life with confidence, just as before.
Do you feel you are wearing a system (like a hat on your head)?
I have been wearing a system for over 1 year, and don't feel it at all. Technology has allowed
systems to come a long way since they were the "butt" of jokes- when they were mis-fitting,
looked like a "rug" on your head, and simply were a wig taken from a mass production line.
Mine very much acts like my own skin, it breathes, when I run my sweat flows through it into
my hair (like my real hair), I shower, sleep, and swim in it, and simply live a pretty normal life in
it. All this without a soul not knowing- as you can see my hairline, and it matches my real hair
What are the systems made from?
Speaking for eM|Power Hair, the base material is literally like a membrane (a skin for
your skin) which is breathable, allows your skin to sweat naturally, and matches your skin colour perfectly- it is made from a super-fine, natural lace. The hair used is always finest quality 100% human hair for a totally natural look and blending, as well as for durability. The adhesives are all tested and medically approved as safe for all skin types.
How are they customized?
We at eMPower Hair make a mould of your head shape so it is a perfect fit. This is then sent off to our own production facility where the lace base is created and human hair hand knotted out of the lace to achieve extremely natural and undetectable results.
How long will they stay on for?
Generally, you can keep the hair system on for up to four weeks at which point you will need to
come into the salon for maintenance (this can also be done at home). Remember, everyone is
different so a person with oily skin may require it changed earlier and someone with dry skin can go over the 4 week average. Also, lifestyles vary greatly so a person who swims alot will require the system changed more often than someone who has a less demanding one.
I live outside of London or the UK, will this affect my having hair replacement?
Not really. eMPower Hair has partner salons across the UK.. If you wish to come to London all you need is 1 day for consultation and design (2 days at most). Also, in the case of eMPower Hair , we have an agreement with a nearby hotel (4 star) in London's Hyde Park- whereby a single standard room is discounted by up to 50% including VAT. If you do purchase a system, your room cost is deducted from the cost of your purchase.
How do you look after and maintain them?
The hair system will need to be taken off your head, cleaned where the adhesive is re-applied and then the whole hair system re-attached to your scalp. This keeps your head and hair system fresh and looking like a real head of hair.
Is it necessary to shave my head in order to wear a hair system?
Hair systems are attached in many ways ays by eMPower (even onto existing hair).
I want to have some transplants. Will wearing a hair system hurt my transplants?
Many clients use a hair system while their transplanting is being performed. If the density of the transplants in the front is thick enough, a system can be placed behind them.
How often am I going to need to have my hair color refreshed? The frequency of hair color
refreshing depends on the color of the hair. Black will rarely fade. A light ash blonde color might need refreshing two to three times a year.
What about hair breakage? How often will those hairs need to be added back to the
Real hair breaks easily- even with your own natural living hair. Some clients purchase a system
and will only need hair addition once a yea or every 3 months or so. Some clients are rough on their systems and
will need an hour of hair addition every other month. The longer the hair is in length the more
readily it will break. Learning the correct techniques and using the proper brush will reduce hair loss on your system.
Are attachment methods expensive? Is this an extra charge?
You can have any hair replacement salon attach your system monthly or you can perform this
service yourself. About half of our clients prefer to attach their own systems. These services are an extra charge and performed as needed.
Do you have much experience with female clients?
We have a large clientele of women (about 50%). We make a variety of custom systems for you from full sized systems for clients losing their hair, to those wanting to create hair they never could have had naturally, and for people who want to increase the density of their hair.
Which types of systems are more versatile, systems that go on a shaved head or hair
The type of base used determines the versatility of a system. A mesh type system on a shaved area is omni-directional and very versatile. Integration systems are less versatile because hairs are tied on to a grid and most require that you decide on a definite part
How long after you design my system will I need to wait before I can have my system or systems?
Both systems will be completed in approximately 4-6 weeks from the design date.
Do you use human or synthetic hair?
eMPower Hair designs systems with human hair that exactly match your hair texture. We feel
Human is more realistic, breathes, acts naturall, has natural shine and sheen, and offers quality that cheaper synthetic hair simply cannot.
Do I really need two hair systems?
It's our opinion that customers should have two systems. This insures that you will always have one to wear while the other might need to be repaired, have a hair addition, color treatment or new front. But one can still have single systems for those who prefer to have their system serviced in the salon.
What is the life span of your hair systems?
Our systems will last 2-3 years if A PAIR are purchased (that can be rotated) and depending on
the client's styling and maintenance techniques. That's about twice as long as other systems.
How long does my system stay on my head?
Every person is different, depending on skin oil level, the amount of sweat produced, lifestyle,
etc. the usual time is between 3 and 4 weeks.
How does the unit last 2-3 years if it is human hair? Won't the hair deteriorate/fade/develop split ends?
Unlike artifical hair, the Human Hair we use is a very durable medium. Color corrections will
need to be done occasionally (every 6 months or so) and hair addition and a new front required, but it's a very easy process. Also, if you look after your hair with detanglers, conditioners, high quality shampoos, etc. your hair will be fine.
How are you able to replace the hair in my receding temple area?
We can replace the hair in your temple areas because our materials disappear on your skin so we can replace hair anywhere.
Is there any other way to wear a system without shaving?
In most cases it is necessary to shave the areas that need more hair, but in some cases we make what are called Hair Integration Systems which saves every hair on your head. However, if you want total undetectability, I suggest you shave. Remember no one is ever going to see you without your system because you live in it.
Will your systems look like my own hair?
The most important thing to remember is that we make hair systems that look like your own hair and it looks like it is growing right out of your skin! Our technology make it possible to make the famed "eMPower Hair front"- a scalp line whereby the hair literally looks like it is growing out of your skin. eMPower Hair is the only firm in the world capable of doing this.
I live not so much of an active lifestyle, but I do own a convertible. Would that be a
problem with one of your hair systems?
Not at all! Let your hair blow in the wind. Live in it! Short of falling off of the London Eye, your system can withstand alot of normal wear and tear including wind, rain, swimming, soccer, etc.
Do you have clients who will let me see them wearing their hair system?
Yes. We have clients who you can look at and also we have examples for you to actually wear.
If I live far from your locations, is it necessary for me to travel to your salon in order to
have a system designed?
It is normally necessary for you to make two trips to our London salons. One for the design and
one for the "cut-in" after your system has arrived (4-6 weeks later).
How do ladies apply make-up without clogging-up the front lace?
The best way to apply foundation, powder or bronzer is to protect the front lace area by putting a shower cap (the type you find in hotel bathrooms!) over your head, bringing it forward over the hairline to protect the lace and then apply your make-up as normal. This will prevent the lace getting dirty.
How does your system attach to your head?
Mine attaches with surgical glue to the front and sides. Some people use a mixture of glue and
two-sided tape (super strong). These last about 2 weeks to a month depending on how oily or dry your skin is and your activity level (the more sweat and oil the faster the adhesives will break down). About every 5 days or so I add some adhesive at the very front with a Q-Tip (takes 5 minutes) as this is the most likely place for the glue to break down. And that's it. MY HAIR IS SIMPLY WONDERFUL, and allows me to do everything my real hair could, as the glues are very strong and undetectable. Also, some very good news is that eMPower Hair are always
having developed new glues and adhesives that constantly "push" the boundaries including the
new eMPower Super Hair tape that lasts up to an incredible 41 days without breakdown.
Be honest- "Systems" are just a fancy name for wigs!
I assume the writer of this has a full head of hair, or has simply given up on ever re-gaining
theirs. Nothing can replace your real, living hair at this point. BUT, technology and the
dedication of many people has made it possible for hair loss sufferers to come close. Speaking
for our firm, eMPower Hair, we have spent MANY YEARS creating systems (including the
famed Mayfair Front) that come as close as humanly possible to replicate a person's real
hair. No, they do not grow like living hair, and they can come off if you dive off the Golden
Gate Bridge or the London Eye. But, in everyday living including riding your motorbike or
going for a run or going to a concert or dinner or roller skating through Hyde park or simply
LIVING and Enjoying your life- they are wonderful. They breathe, sweat, can be styled like your
real hair, you can run your fingers (or your partner's) through them, and THEY ARE TOTALLY
UNDETECTABLE; and the number one comment we get from hair loss sufferers is: "I got my
life back". It all depends if you see the glass as half empty or full!
Why do your systems at eMPower Hair take so long to make?
Our systems take approximately 8 weeks from the time of design. Why? Because being the
world's best at what we do requires the absolute highest standards in our craftsmanship. Our
systems are all made by hand in the West, are made from the finest materials on the planet, use real human hair (only from the west), we match your hair sample taken during design perfectly before constructing your system, ensure hair density matches your real hair perfectly, and that hair length is exact- among many other things. Our systems don't bleed hair after purchase, or tear, or rip, and last longer than any other on the market (2-3 Plus years for a pair). All of our systems also comprise the famed "eMPower Front™" our undetectable and patented front which looks like the hair is literally growing out of your head. Our goal is to always be the undisputed, best in the world at what we do: making each customer look their absolute best hair-wise. This takes time.
Are systems Hot to wear? especially in the summer?
Not at all as they breathe very much like your own skin.
I have Afro style hair (short and curly). Can you give me long and straight hair?
Science and technology allow incredible things to be done with systems and hair replacement in
general. It is an everyday thing (for eMPower Hair to create very long, "Beyonce" style hair for
someone who naturally has short and curly hair. There are many different design
options available to give Afro clients that gorgeous Beyonce style hair they dream of. Our
designs all allow for our trademark "eMPower Hair Front" that looks like the hair is growing out
of the skin. Below are some examples of the world-leading work that eMPower Hair does.
Do hairpieces really stay on? And how?
At eMPower Hair we create systems which are completely different to 'hair pieces'- our systems
breathe, and stay on for up to one month so you can swim, run, shower, and sleep in them... or ride your motorbike! Hair pieces are a thing of the 1970's resembling a cat resting on your head our systems are completely undetectable, have a hairline that looks like it is growing out of your skin, and are as close as 2009 technology can get to your real hair! Really! To see a real life test ( against powerful wind machine and rain) carried out by London's ITV Morning Show on our homepage. You will be amazed. Systems are adhered in several ways: the most common being surgical glue at the front and tape or glue on the perimeter. Our surgical glue is government approved, hypoallergenic (allergyfree), waterproof, breathes and will last between 2 weeks and one month depending on how oily your skin is. The glue slowly breaks down from your skin's oils and sweat, so the more oily skin you have and the more you sweat will cause it to break down faster. Hence, an aerobics instructor who works out all day will maybe need it replaced every 2 weeks, whilst a person who runs every other day with dry skin may only need to come in once a month.
How long can I keep a system on?
It depends upon your lifestyle and skin type. On average about 3-4 weeks, but if you have very
oily skin, then maybe only 2 weeks, or if you run and exercise many times a week and sweat a
lot 2-3 weeks. It depends on the person. We have aerobics teachers who have their systems on
for 1 month before coming in for a re-groom.
In the hot weather does a system sweat?
eMPower Hair systems are very much designed like you skin- with pores- which allow them to
breathe naturally. Hence, your system will breathe and sweat in a similar way to your natural hair and skin when you run, play sports, or just go for a walk- even in very hot weather- and will allow sweat and heat generated by the body to escape.
It is often suggested that I have 2 systems- why?
First, the suggestion to invest in 2 systems is not in order to sell you more or make more money out of you.
On the contrary, having 2 systems that can be "rotated" will save you money in the long run.
Like your real hair, hair systems go under a lot of wear and tear- especially while sleeping or if
many hours in powerful sun and UV rays. Also, natural day to day usage causes hair to break,
hairs to be lost, and over time color to fade a little. Hence, while hair additions and recoloring are being done, you can use one system freeing up the other to routine maintenance. Also, by
rotating systems (switching to a different one every other month) you simply reduce wear and
tear on them.
