Common Questions

How do we do this through the mail?

There are several parts that make our process for designing custom hair systems through the mail possible. First, it begins with our Custom Fitting Kit.

The kit makes it easy for you to provide us with all the necessary details we need to create a perfectly matched hair replacement system. The kit contains a patented molding process, so you can throw out the saran wrap and get the most precise details.

Plus it includes hair, base and color samples for the most accurate design and blending possible. Learn more about where we go from there...

How much do our hair systems cost?

This is the best part... a full custom hair system from Hair Direct will cost a fraction of what you might already be paying those big clubs! Prices vary depending on the type of hairpiece you need, but most of our clients never pay more than $499 per unit.

That includes the cut-in fee because our systems arrive cut, styled and ready-to-wear right out of the box. Plus we have a great discount plan where you could pay as little as $228 per system, find out more...

How long will it take?

From the time you place your hair system order, it typically takes about 8 weeks. But if you're feeling the need for speed, we also offer a Super Rush service for an additional $149 (per unit). No worries, though. What's rushed is shipping and handling, not quality. You'll get the same top-flight craftsmanship that our other systems receive, with the additional benefit of:

Priority Status: Your order jumps to the front of the line—ahead of other customers!

Guaranteed Delivery: Your system will be delivered to your door within 35 days of your order (45 days for Full Cap hair systems) or your Super Rush fee is refunded, hassle-free. No other company in the industry offers this kind of guarantee.

Remember to ask about our Super Rush service when you order!

Where's my hair?

Looking for the status on your current order? If it has been at least 4 weeks since your order was placed, give us a call (800) 424-7436 and one of our hair techs should be able to give you a more specific delivery date.

FYI, we're planning to launch a new order tracking system sometime in early 2010. Soon you'll be able to track the progress of your new hair system from start to finish of the production line.

Do we have a location near you?

How long will the hair system last before I need to re-order?

Good question, unfortunately it's very hard to answer. Of course much depends on your lifestyle and the level of care and maintenance you put into your hair. But the type of base you have is also a deciding factor. Most of our full-lace bases will look their best between 30 and 90 days. On the other hand we have long-lasting bases like our conventional systems that can be worn up to 18 months without any signs of break down. For more info on base systems and how to choose the best for you, please check out our Learning Center.

What is the Standing Order Discount and how does it work?

How can you sell hair systems for so cheap?

Unlike the clubs and retail hair replacement salons, we have very low operating costs. And we prefer to pass the savings onto you. Plus, we are our own direct manufacturer and do not sell or buy to the "middle-men."

Do you sell stock systems for emergency needs?

You bet! Give us a call toll-free @ 1-800-424-7436 if you need a system in a hurry. One of our hair techs can work with you to figure out your size, contour and hair blending details.

Can I take care of the maintenance myself?

Absolutely. You’ll save tons of money in maintenance costs alone, and we’ll show you just how easy and convenient it really is! Most big hair clubs and retail centers offer very little education on how to take care of your own system. This way you’re forced to go back for expensive monthly service. Visit our learning center for more information...

Can I pick my own hairstyle or do I need to choose from your gallery?

The choice is yours. Our online hair style gallery can serve as an excellent guide to picking a hair style or just as inspiration as you design your own. In fact, our technical team can work with you no matter what you're looking for. Just send us a picture out of a magazine and we can probably make it work!

Will I need to shave the top of my head before attaching my hair system?

Although it's not a requirement (some hair wearers use clips) many people do prefer to shave the area of their head that the hair system will cover. This is a common practice at retail hair replacement salons, clubs and Farrell. Having a clean shaven area to attach your hair system (using either hairpiece tape or liquid adhesive) will dramatically improve the strength of the bond as well as the length of time you can wear the unit. Of course, we can design a hair replacement system for you in any shape or size. For this reason we do recommend growing your hair around the balding area so the hair piece is covering a smaller spot on your head.
