Base Description

Think about New York. It’s only as strong as its grid of tightly woven streets. Kind of like its namesake base, the HD26.  

Reasons you might give this base a green light? You'll get a High Definition Hairline and bleached knots, not to mention invisible, hand-sewn alleys of cross-stitching for extra durability. That means it's tougher than its Hollywood lace counterparts, the HD03 and HD24, but still prone to damage from tearing and tougher cleaning—just like other lace bases.

While we recommend an extra-light to medium hair density for this base, some clients say it can take the higher end of that scale. By the way, you can get this unit in both custom and stock flavors.

So the HD26 is soft with an edge. Not unlike many a New Yorker. ;-)

Our hair systems are custom made to fit the shape & size of your balding pattern. Full caps are also available.


Can I customize this base?
You bet you can. In fact, that's a big part of what ordering your hair direct is all about! Want a side part or hair break? Done. Need to change the size of a poly perimeter? No problem. Your possibilities are nearly endless. Just contact us to discuss all your design options, including a custom fitting kit, which is probably the best way to get the hair system you really want.
Is this base available in Full Cap?
Yes it is. Even better? Just about every other base in our lineup can be ordered as a full cap unit as well.
What type of hair is available?
We use only the highest quality human (or synthetic if you prefer) hair on the market. The human hair we buy will always be soft and healthy. Our hair scout makes frequent trips to India, hand selecting each bundle of hair. The hair is then brought to our factory in Qingdao, China where it is processed. Although we do not recommend synthetic hair, we use only the finest available, which is manufactured in Japan.
How do I know if this base is right for me?
Boy, can this ever be a tough decision. It all comes down to appearance vs. durability. Is an undetectable look most important to you? Or do you want a system that lasts a long time. It's almost impossible to have it both ways in a hair system. Luckily, we provide a handy rating system. Just look in the upper left corner of the page to find out how this base rates in both appearance and durability.
How much time does it take to make and deliver?
The first step is to order our custom fitting kit online. We ship it right out to you so we can get all your design and fitting details. From the day you send the kit back with your hair order, expect it to arrive—ready to wear—in about 8-10 weeks. It just depends on the type of hair system you've ordered. Larger bases, like full caps usually require more time to manufacture. Of course, we do have a priority rush program if you just can't wait that long. Plus, you'll always know where your hair is because you can track your order in real-time at every phase of production right through to delivery.
