Provide a template of your bald area for an exact custom fit. A good fitting template is important and will give you a natural look. Design the hairline that you want. Making a template from plastic wrap and tape is easy.
Place an 18" square of clear plastic wrap so that it covers the top portion of the head. After pressing the wrap close to the head, use tape to contour the head shape. Beginning at the forehead, place transparent tape on the wrap, over what will become the outer perimeters of the pattern. These outer perimeters are determined by the areas of baldness.
After you have taped the boundaries cover the inner portion of the plastic wrap with overlapping pieces of tape. Apply three layers of tape. The tape will lock the plastic wrap into a permanent transparent tape template.
Using a Sharpie permanent marker , draw pattern lines on the tape template while it is still on your head. Though requirements vary from customer to customer, some rules of thumb apply to most. A Front hairline should usually be established by placing three or four fingers (depending on your age) above the brow line. Lines are drawn from that point to form a pattern which covers the bald area. Deeper recessions look most natural. After the entire outer perimeter of the pattern is drawn, the desired style should be indicated. If a part is desired, draw a line from a pivot point at the back crown to the front hairline. Placement of the pivot point should correspond to what can be seen of your original growth. Indicate the probable growth pattern on the tape template, the date the tape template is made, as well as other pertinent information concerning the custom hairpiece.
After you have finished marking the tape template, add one more layer of tape (now four) to cover and seal in the markings. After your mold is complete please take at least 2 small locks of hair from your scalp and indicate what part of the head they were taken from, this will help us to accurately match your hair's natural color.(If you can provide your color code this step is not necessary.). Please send your completed tape template, as well as color samples or color code to our office. Your tape template will be kept on file for all future orders. All custom orders are typcically delivered within 4-6 weeks from the the date we receive your package.
For the best fit we recommend that you make a template of your bald area (instructions on the Order Guide) and send it to us with your first order. We'll keep the template 'on file' in your personal account. Once your template is 'on file' it's easy — just mark 'on file' for future orders.
After that it's a snap - just select 'on file' for future orders. Below is a sample of just some basic colors based on the New Image Men’s Color Chart. Remember, these colors should be used as a guideline as colors vary due to the digitizing process and differences in computer monitors.
