HAIR LOSS SOLUTIONS

More than 8 million women in the UK suffer from some sort of hair loss. It can be caused by autoimmune disorders such as Alopecia, hormonal changes, medical treatments such as chemotherapy to name but a few. Whatever the cause it is a stressful and very emotional experience. Our service is dedicated to finding a natural-looking, tailormade solution to help you look and feel your best.

Hair Thinning

If you’re experiencing hair thinning or partial hair loss, hair enhancers may be the ideal option for you. We offer both ready made and custom made pieces, personalising them to your individual style. They will be discreetly applied in-house, and we will also show you how to care for the hairpieces at home.

TESTIMONIALS

G Meredith- “Gary Price has changed my life” My free consultation with Gary Price and he has changed my life. He is quiet and considerate, listens to how you are feeling and gives the best advice on how to move forward with a distressing situation. We decided a custom made hair piece was the best option for me and his attention to detail in getting it exactly right is second to none. He is there for you every step of the way and deals with your emotional and aesthetic situation quietly and reassuringly. He knows exactly what you need without pressurising you in anyway at all. I am now onto my second hairpiece and I would (and have) recommend anyone experiencing any kind of hair loss, whatever their circumstances, to go to Gary. I trust him completely and know that I can speak to him at any time or pop in to make adjustments as required. I cannot thank him enough for making me feel like myself again. He is the ultimate expert and has restored my confidence. Thank you Gary.

Fay- “Gary has been fundamental to helping me find a wig solution” Gary Price has been fundamental to helping me find a wig solution that works for me.  I have had Alopecia Totalis since I was very little and didn’t decide that I wanted to wear a wig until I was twenty-five so when I ventured into the world of wigs I wasn’t just looking for a wig, but an expert to advise me on what’s possible, what’s available and crucially, what suits me and thankfully, I found this in Gary. He has an innate ability to immediately put me at ease, to understand me and my style and based on that information, make suggestions as to which solution would work best for me.  I decided that a bespoke wig would be the best option for me, which Gary cuts and styles for me and I could not be happier with the results! Gary’s expertise, sensitivity and skill means that I have never left one of his consultations feeling like I’m wearing a wig; I always leave feeling like me.

Thank you Gary

Tonia- “Gary Price is the only medical hair specialist I would trust” Gary Price has saved my sanity on many occasions; he is a miracle worker in my opinion. Alopecia blighted my life and badly affected my confidence when I was younger (wish I had known Gary then!). When female pattern baldness struck again years later (during a ton of stress and peri-menopausal) it was a massive blow to my self-image, but from the minute I met Gary he helped me to accept the situation, to not worry every time I looked in the mirror and to feel as if I could cope with whatever happened next. Losing your crowning glory is very hard and it’s even harder to trust anyone to deal with this, but Gary is worth every penny. If you need a wig, he is the only medical hair specialist I would trust to make something very special. I can’t thank him enough for improving my confidence and self-esteem when I was at an all-time low and on every occasion since.

Claire- “Thank you for finding me the right wig” Thank you so much for your help in finding the right wig for me today. I feel so reassured after my visit - for myself and for my children - that I will look like me through the treatment to come. You’ve got such a wonderfully calm, gentle manner and without fuss found me a wig I was comfortable in. One with a little less volume that was as much like my natural hair as you could get. I truly appreciate your expertise, experience and care - and feel much less daunted by what’s to come - I know that I’m in good hands for my next visit to fit, style and cut the wig - and my own hair too. I’ll see you on the other side! And thank you again, honestly you were brilliant.

Q & A

Synthetic Hair

No Synthetic hair cannot be tinted or bleached

No. Intense heat (including hot water) must be avoided; e.g. no hairdryers, tongs or straightening irons.

Synthetic fibre wigs worn daily will need to be replaced on average every 3-4 months. Longer styles every 2-3 months

We do not recommend sleeping in a wig or hairpiece as this will reduce the lifespan by half.

It can be washed in cool water with products specifically made for synthetic fibres. Specific aftercare instructions will be given for each product purchased.

Before washing gently remove all tangles with a large, wide tooth comb. Fill a bowl with cool water and a small amount of synthetic wig shampoo, soak it in the water for a few minutes. Rinse and then apply synthetic wig conditioner, rinse thoroughly. Blot dry with a towel to absorb excess moisture and then place it on a stand or work head to dry naturally. We also recommend regularly applying a leave in moisturising spray in between washing, this will help extend its life.

The majority of our ready to wear wigs are adjustable in size. Many can be secured with mono tape or with snap lock clips. If you have hair underneath, hair grips can be used to secure it in place.

Human Hair

Human hair wigs should be washed using only products recommended by your consultant. They can be blow dried using a medium heat. Excessive heat will considerably shorten the lifespan of real hair. Please refer to the washing instructions for step by step aftercare.

They can be coloured darker but not lighter. We do not recommend using home dyes at any time. Colouring a wig or hairpiece is a very specialised skill, therefore always refer to your consultant at Daniel Galvin before undertaking any colour change.

We can provide a full aftercare service which includes cutting, blow drying, colouring, deep conditioning and dressing the hair for events such as weddings.

A bespoke wig can take from 3-5 months to make. Every custom piece is hand knotted and made to the highest quality possible.

Before washing gently remove all tangles with a large, wide tooth comb. Add the recommended shampoo to a bowl of warm water and leave to soak for a few minutes, rinse thoroughly and repeat if necessary. Repeat this process with the conditioner recommended by your consultant. Please note a human hair wig must not be combed or brushed harshly when wet as this will loosen the hair. Always allow the it to dry naturally and then when nearly dry it may be blow dried using gentle heat. It may be straightened or curled with tongs or straightening irons which do not exceed 140 degrees.
