There has been a dramatic resurgence in individuals exploring hair loss options. Undoubtedly, self-esteem and personal identity impact our lives socially and professionally. The appearance of a person’s hair plays an important role in how they chose to be recognized in the world.

Older people are not the only ones struggling emotionally with hair loss. Young adults and children are also devastated, often to the point of feeling isolated and depressed. Modern technological advancements in state-of-the-art, non-surgical hair restoration solutions, cranial prosthetics, and wigs are life-changing for most people,” said Michael Son, owner of Creative Hair Center.

Creative Hair Center is celebrating their 18th year, centrally located in Tulsa’s Bridgepoint Shopping Center (71st Street, west of Lewis Ave). The setting offers easy access and free parking. The owner, Michael created a fashionable Tuscan styled design, only surpassed by his gracious understanding of discreet, professional consultations and confidential styling services in private rooms.

“I’m very happy to see the increased acceptance for men to wear man-weaves, more formally referred to as cranial prosthesis, hair replacement units or hair systems,” Michael said. “My sincere hope is for society to continue remove the stigma around wigs and hair replacement.”

Don’t think artificial – think alternative
Recently, upgraded wigs, extensions and hair pieces have grown in popularity with the younger crowd. Nonsurgical hair replacement units are designed for most hair types including Caucasian, Latino and African-American. In most cases, they are 100 percent human hair, although some are blends with synthetic hair. Transgender and gender fluid persons want to look natural. Their transitional changes need to be precise and unnoticeable. We have been instrumental in helping achieve those goals. Today‘s hair additions offer realistic appearance from all angles.

There’s a key difference between wigs and hair prostheses. A wig refers to any sort of head covering made from natural or synthetic hair, and can be used for cosmetic or medical purposes. A hair prosthesis is a wig that has been molded, custom made for a person who has experienced hair loss due to a medical condition.

“We take everything into account when creating a custom unit. Texture, density, and color play a major part in creating the look and style to fit personal preferences. It’s designed to achieve the look and feel of natural hair,” explained Michael. “It enables the user to participate in sporting and water activities with complete comfort and confidence. We have been the #1 choice for a number of people from children to adults in all walks of life .”

While modern technology has enabled the creation of the most realistic, undetectable hair replacement systems to date, current hair replacement techniques bond the hair replacement system to the scalp with a translucent, hypoallergenic medical adhesive, acting as a second layer of skin.

Most importantly, no one should underestimate the importance attached to the creative skill of those performing the procedures. Specific training is required for designing, cutting and blending in a hair replacement system.

Non-surgical hair replacement technicians, Kaci Listar and Meloney Moore have more than 20 years of combined experience, ongoing education/certifications and advanced skills.

“Staying on the cutting edge of this technology sharpens our skills, expanding our knowledge to focus seriously on the health of the scalp, existing hair and custom hair prosthetics,” adds Kaci.

“I feel blessed to be able to work in such a rewarding environment,” said Meloney. “My nursing experience has been enriched as we create solutions, for those losing their hair whether it be natural genetics, hormone replacement therapies, cancer treatments, head traumas, cranial surgeries or burns.”

“As non-surgical hair replacement specialists, we are just as passionate about modern hair makeovers for children who suffer from hair loss,” added Kaci . “The instantaneous smiles on young faces are reflected in the salon mirrors as they regain confidence in their new look. One child explained, ‘I am disguised as myself’. I am proud to be the sidekick to their heroic status, helping them be their best self, after losing their hair.”
