Wigs and Hairpieces
Blades Salon and Spa specializes in hair replacement for both men and women. Whether your hair is thinning or completely gone, Jack can make you feel completely comfortable with the replacement process. With over 20 years experience Jack has the knowledge to help you find the look that is right for you.
When thinking about hair replacement there are several items to take into consideration including type of hair, type of attachment, and how the hair is tied.
There are three types of hair generally used in making human hair wigs: Asian, Indian, and European. European hair is the least plentiful, and therefore it is the most expensive. European hair is very soft and silky, and is preferred by many Caucasian women because it resembles the texture of their own hair. Asian hair is the most plentiful and least expensive. The texture of Asian hair is mostly suitable for wear by women of Asian or African descent, as it is generally similar in texture to their own. Indian hair has long been used by manufacturers who make better quality human hair wigs because of its similarity in texture to European hair. As an added benefit, Indian hair is much less expensive than European, and so this hair is very desirable by those who prefer a more silky textured human hair wig, without the high price of European.
Locks of Love
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Locks of Love meets a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Our mission at Blades is to help return a sense of self confidence and normalcy to these children. We hope to touch each and every client that comes to Blades for a service. But when we read the letters, testimonials, and calls of thanks from our clients and families, it makes every minute even more worthwhile.
Are you considering a donation to Locks of Love? Here are a few things you need to know:
Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable. Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid. Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist. We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. **If the hair was bleached years ago and has completely grown out it is fine to donate. Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable because it is not bundled in a ponytail or braid. Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. If shaving your head, first divide hair into multiple ponytails to cut off. We cannot accept dreadlocks. Our manufacturer is not able to use them in our children's hairpieces. We also cannot accept wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair. Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches. Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails. Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.) ,(10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.
