Default Buying and applying hair systems by yourself.

I'm planning on using the hair system, but I want to do it by myself. Because it's very expensive to let the hair salons do it for me, where I'm from. So has anybody done this by themselves?

What kind of adhesive and glue did you use? Is it difficult?

I was thinking Ebay. I've searched for the items you listed, and I found many of them.

You need to be careful with ebay! There are a few genuine suppliers on there but if its direct from China or something under ?170 it will be rubbish.

Likewise don't pay more than ?350 for a piece.

The sweet spot for price and quality is between them

This is really good advice! Best 'toup' message board on the internet; good quality and you can customize (the sky is the limit) & members are active and eager to help.

One thing I never really understood was why don't guys truly 'customize' the frontal hairline and make it irregular and ventilate it artistically?

One could take pics of the best 'artistic fronts' and go to someone who does ventilate (local theatre person) or send to someone who does custom front work and seriously have a great hairline.

Good luck!
