Thank you for all that you and Michael do for Lolly's Locks. This is such a great partnership!

Dear Michael and Dennis,

   I wanted to thank you so very much for the dark wig I purchased from you on 9-16-17. I came in with my daughter and stylist.

   Much has happened since I last saw you. My daughter had her baby boy a week later. I began treatment the following week, and to everyone's surprise after one treatment, my hair was toast,  Goobs came out. My hairdresser removed the damage a I have been wearing you wig ever since.

   The wig is comfortable, looks amazing and I am doing everything you said to care for it so specially.

   I am so great full for your product. Thank you for helping me during this challenging time. It is so nice to feel and look like myself again.

   I know our paths my not cross again, but please have a fantastic day and thank you so very much.

     With much appreciation,

                Susie

This has taken me so long to write, but my Aunt was a Studio International client of Dennis & Michael's for over 30 years!  She contracted Guillian Barre which left her with essentially no hair in the middle of her successful investment banking career.  I pretty much only knew her wearing wigs and for all those years could hardly ever tell.  She had many different versions over the years, every one of them glamorous.  Dennis & Michael were such good friends of hers and I know she always enjoyed her appointments and time with both.  As one of their most faithful clients, I know she would have given them a perfect 10 stars!  Continue your amazing work Dennis & Michael!!  I miss you both!  SS

Hi Michael,

 Thank you very much for your informative meeting with me today. I appreciate your knowledgeable approach to the care of your merchandise as well as the fact that you have many interesting wigs in your inventory.

I've been wearing a synthetic wig during chemo but wanted another wig that was longer and didn't look "like" a wig.  Left a voice message at Studio International and Michael returned my call the same day.  He had a cancellation for the next day so I immediately set up an appointment with him.  Studio International is located near the Mission District.  It's easy to get to on Bart (24th Street Station) and walk 15 minutes to the studio.  I found the studio quite spacious with many synthetic and real hair wigs available to look at and try.  Michael recognized my current wig was machined stitched and that their wigs were all hand stitched.  He showed me the difference and there is a huge difference.  Michael suggested several wigs that may look good on me.  I finally settled on a wig with real hair.  Yes, it's expensive but well worth it if you want a wig that last and looks good.  The wigs come uncut so I conference in my long time hairdresser with Michael and he suggested to my hairdresser how to cut and style the wig.  Thankfully my hairdresser has worked with this type of wig before.  Michael explained to me in detail how to wash and take care of the wig.  Another thing I like about Studio International is how they respect their client's privacy and meet only one customer at a time.  I highly recommend Studio International to anyone looking for a well made wig and excellent customer service.

Hi Dennis/Michael, 

It was a pleasure meeting with both of you today.  I learned a lot about wigs today.and will certainly recommend Studio International to friends who many be needing a wig.  I am also a Yelper and will definitely post a very positive review on Yelp.

Dear Michael

Thank you for your kind & professional service. As you well know from many of your clients loosing your hair is very traumatic and your expert knowledge & sensitivity made it less so. It is wonderful to know there is someone out there that can always help me if I have a concern or question. 

Thank you again

Sincerely 

Karole

PS went to a friends home for dinner in SF last night & she kept commenting on how nice my hair looked - matched my eyes etc & did not know it was a wig!

 Hello Michael and Dennis, 

I wanted to thank you both for your time today. It was great meeting you and I truly appreciated your patience, sense of humor and TLC in evaluating the best options for me. I'm hopeful that I can confirm more info this week from my doc/insurance to see what they can do to absorb some of the cost. I have been evaluating many options for several months and you both made me feel like I'm in the hands of true pro's! Sadly, my condition won't improve over time, so I see you as my partners to help me feel and look my best for many years to come :-)!

 Thanks again and look forward to speaking with you soon.

Best,

Liz

Excellent, attentive service. They really take their time with the consultation, making sure you understand the different types of wigs and how to care for them. Their goal is not to sell the priciest wig. Rather, their goal is to help you choose the best option for your budget, facial structure and lifestyle (I'm a working mom and easy, low-maintenance wigs work best for me).
I bought two synthetic hand-sewn wigs so I could rotate them for even wear (I wear wigs every day due to hair loss related to a medical condition). I've received so many compliments on "my new hairstyle". Most people can't even tell that I'm wearing a wig. I brought my best friend with me to help me choose a style (a MUST).
I am VERY happy with the overall experience. I am a customer for life.

Excellent customer service, starting from the initial phone consultation. I am losing hair due to medical treatment and have tried on many wigs. The product here is so far above a 'wig', and the customer service is outstanding. Michael and Dennis were very patient with me and my indecision about human hair vs synthetic. I left on Saturday without making a decision and a friend and I went to several other cranial prosthesis establishments on the peninsula to do our comparison shopping. The human hair pieces at other places can't hold a candle to the high quality of workmanship available here. They have a huge color selection so that a match can be made, and they display their products with pride, not just jammed in a closet. I recommend visiting before all hair is lost so that they can accurately match to  your natural color. They only see one client at a time so that you have the full attention of the staff, appointments are necessary. The pieces are comfortable to wear and using the super-gripper band I can shake my head around and it stays put. I ended up making several phone calls to Michael before my final decision (for now) and he was very friendly and professional, answering my questions so kindly. Thanks for a terrific experience.

You guys are great! when I get a chance, Iíll do a Yelp review for you.

 Thanks again.

I started losing hair because of an autoimmune disorder.  After yelping for wigs, I found this place.  I was initially turned off by the price and their unsophisticated website, but decided to visit them anyway because of the great Yelp reviews.  

Michael  is great.  He knows what will look good on you and makes recommendations.  He spends a good hour showing you your options without interruption from any other clients.  I asked them about how they work with insurance and they are very knowledgeable.  I love my wig because it looks like my original hair color ... just better texture and more volume!!!  :)  My friends and coworkers just think that I have styled my hair different.

Thank you!!!

 

11/17/2016

This place is as good as it gets!  I am currently undergoing chemo treatment and my hair is starting to fall out.  I went to two wig shops in Walnut Creek and had the worst experience of my life.  I've been going weeks feeling panicked because I am functioning fine and don't want anyone to know.  Luckily I found Michael and Dennis. Clearly they are very knowledgeable and compassionate!  They made me feel so comfortable and I just got my wig styled and cut!  I highly recommend them!

I look forward to seeing you again and am happily telling the staff @ CPMC Oncology about you both. You have been a blessing!   

 I just had to write you and tell you what a wonderful experience I had with you (and Michael too!) You were patient, compassionate, and totally supportive of what is such a painful and awkward situation for me. I am so appreciative of the entire experience!! Thank you both for everything. I look and feel fabulous and I owe it all to you!

I'm fortunate that I didn't seek out a wig because I'm going through chemo, I just have really thinning frizzy hair, with way too much scalp showing.  So I decided I needed a wig, but I wanted something that looked realistic.  I read all of the reviews on Yelp and decided that Studio International was the best bet if I didn't want to look like I was in costume.  I made an appointment and met with Michael and Dennis.  I had a pretty definite idea about what I wanted, style wise.  Michael asked me questions about my experience with wigs, and what I was looking for as a result, and whether I had considered an "augmentation" instead of a wig.  When I heard augmentation, I thought eww, ick, I'm not doing a toupee.  So I tried on a few synthetic wigs, and honestly, my hair has been thin all my life, so I could never pull off sudden growth of full, thick hair.  But Michael also brought out a human hair augmentation for me to try, and OMG, it was perfect.  It covers my hair, and works with my hair, but it's light enough that it could pass as my own fine hair.  The look is just what I was hoping for.  Michael advised that if I don't have to get a wig (because there's nothing for the augmentation to be clipped on to), I should go for the easier and more comfortable augmentation.  I'm totally pleased with the pieces (I bought two at once because you get a great discount if you buy more than one), they look so natural.  I can't wait to get it cut and styled.  This was a great educational experience, and I'm so pleased, the quality of the augmentations and wigs is outstanding.  Michael and Dennis are very welcoming and allow you to check out different styles to see how they would suit you.  I highly recommend Studio International.  Oh, they also have street parking, but if you ask in advance, they can arrange for you to park in the street in front of their driveway.

Dear Dennis,

Of all my issues I could think of, losing my hair was never one of them. But that's what happened, and in its place was a head I didn't recognize. I started out with a synthetic wig from  a wig shop, but knew I needed something better to fit my lifestyle...I needed human hair, I needed length, I needed comfort. I shopped around so many places and wigs trying to find the one that felt the most natural/breathable, including in Vegas, NYC, Texas (hair conference), was long and thick enough to make me feel like my old self, fit me well and looked good on me. I was only able to find that at this shop. The wigs I purchased were good quality and suited me as best a wig could. In all honesty I hated wearing wigs, no matter how high quality they are they just aren't fun to wear, but if you need one come here and get them. No, they aren't cheap, but you get what you pay for and they offer a discount on two or more which is nice. Although I have not purchased here as of late due to my hair returning I still highly recommend this place, regardless of distance and price.

Dennis & Michael,

You two are the most amazing, kind, considerate and informative individuals Joe and I have encountered in a long time. Thank you!

Last night I read (for the first time) the absolutely no returns or exchanges clause at the bottom of our receipt. It warmed our hearts and brought tears to my eyes to realize that you knowingly made an exception for us.......and we didn't even notice.  Thank you!
 

Thank you from the bottom of both of our hearts (to the top of my head Emoji) for going the extra mile.......for me. From the time I emailed my first question,  to the moment when we walked through your door; we just knew we were in the right place.

You gave us both a sense of peace and comfort where there had previously been nothing but fear of the unknown.

Losing your hair is a horrible, life changing event, but both of you seem to have mastered the art of making it as seamless and painless as possible for your clients.

That's a beautiful thing for those of us afflicted, no matter what the reason.

Just when I didn't think there was anything else you could do to amaze me........you did!!! You still went another step further..........You took my wig to the post office so I would get it sooner!!! Outstanding!!!

Such professionalism is rare, but such unparalleled and exceptional personal treatment is unique.
 
Be assured, we will give high praise to Studio International Inc., and you two in particular, to everyone we come across who needs your services.

The world needs more beautiful people. Thank you for being two of them and thank you for touching our lives.
 
Very, very best,

 
Andrea & Joe

Dennis, 

I just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how much my family appreciates you.  We were in your show room yesterday

(my two sisters and I) with our mother.  You and Michael were just wonderful!   

Going through this new part of our life and seeing our mother go through this has been very difficult.  Your prosthesis is going to give our mother a chance to feel like herself while she goes through this hell that will be Chemo.   

You were so generous with your time and didn't make us feel like you were trying to sell anything, just trying to help us learn our options and become comfortable with a new normal.  Thank you so much for making one thing feel easy through this difficult time.

Dennis and Michael are just wonderful.  You could not ask for a more caring, kind, and attentive person than Dennis.  He was was so generous with his time and really made my family comfortable during such a difficult time. We were thrilled with the extremely high quality of the prosthesis.  I wouldn't go anywhere else!  This place is amazing!

If you or a loved one are losing hair due to alopecia or chemotherapy, this is the place you need to come.  The wigs here are so high quality that they don't like to use that term at all, they call them "hair prostheses" or something like that.  They are very high quality hair pieces that are made in-house.  Shopping here was a pleasant experience and we felt like we were in safe hands.

Dear Dennis and Michael,

Thank you so much.  

I wanted to send you my heartfelt thank you. Meeting you both and having your kindness and support during this time was tremendous. Dealing with a health crisis is an overwhelming thing and undergoing cancer treatment can take it's toll on ones spirits. Your both amazing people and I can not thank you enough for such a high quality wig. 

It looks and feels like my own hair did, and you restored my spirits. Thank you both and Studio Hair, for your compassion, kindness, professionalism, and  genuine care.

 With deepest appreciation and thanks, I am forever grateful to you both and Lolly's locks org for making this time in my life one with added quality.  

Warmly, 

Connie

 Michael was a pleasure to work with and my hair piece is truly gorgeous. The hair is exactly like the perfect hair I once had and the quality of the natural hair is evident. The wig looks exactly like my own hair! I had other consultations prior to Studio International and was shocked at the prices for wigs that were not as beautiful and less comfortable. My hair piece I purchased from Studio International is light and gorgeous at a fraction of the price. I am so happy I found this place. They made a difficult time in my life a little easier. Thank you Michael!

 Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.  You took what I was expecting to be a daunting task and made it simple!  If anyone has "hair" needs I will definitely be recommending you and Michael. It was the best experience ever and I don't give those kudos lightly.  It is tough when you have so many issues ahead facing chemo.  I went to several locations and was even more stressed...that was before I found "The Best".  you guys rock!  Thanks again for being so compassionate and totally on your game.

    I have about 20 inches of long, curly red hair.  There is not one day that goes by that someone does not comment on it.  I'm not bragging; I hated it for most of my life!)  I am just known for my hair; been on magazine covers, etc.  I only tell you that because I thought there would not be a wig company in the Country that could help me.  I had previously met with a wig expert that  told me should just do part of my hair, wig extensions would be required, etc. etc.   I was referred to Studio International, made an appointment and sent them a selfie.  Michael greeted me immediately,  took me to a salon (very private and discreet) and immediately brought me two real hair wigs that were EXACTLY my hair, just not curly (which is easy to do)   They were knowledgeable,  helpful, have AMAZING products, more reasonable than the single wig maker in Marin, and I walked in and 45 minutes later  took home two beautiful wigs; the second at a discount!  I took them home and everyone from my husband to my grown children like the wigs to much straight they are begging to wear them as is.  I am facing 6 months of Chemo and about three years to get some hair back; I am so happy with their products and I'm so relieved.  I cannot tell you how amazing they are to work with.  AMAZING.

Hi Dennis-

 I have been meaning to write to you since I came to your shop on June 28th. Iíve been having a hard time coming up with the just the right words to express my gratitude and appreciation to you for the support and kindness you showed me when I came in. I am so grateful and appreciative! I really appreciated all of the time you took with me to answer my questions and show me the tricks of the trade with my new wig! I am slowly getting used to wearing it and like to wear it with the new hat I bought at your shop as well! I am attaching a photo. I donít wear my wig everyday and when I am in the house I prefer a cap but when I am out it makes me feel good to have such a high quality wig on my head. I get so many compliments about my new hair, people say they wouldnít have been able to tell the difference if I hadnít told them! 

 Thank you!

Thanks so much, this really might change my life.  People were looking at my hair today, but for once, I think it is because it is beautiful hair, not because they know I bought another hair piece.  I am sure I will be back for more sooner or later.  You guys really know what you are doing.  The color is perfect.

For hair replacement such as thinning hair, cancer or just to feel better about your hair, Studio International is the only place to go, I had been shopping other hair salons but they do not in any way have the knowledge that Micheal and Dennis have. The quality of the hair is phenomenal - the BEST. I have been trying to find a good place to go and THIS IS IT. I have not found any place that compares. I had the pleasure of working with Dennis - he is wonderful

    I received a free wig from the Cancer Society (machine made).  Not satisfied, I found Studio International and had a private consultation with them.  They were so kind and patient, and I could feel a HUGE difference between hand tied wigs and machine made wigs.  I wish I had known about them sooner!  I ended up buying two wigs and couldn't be happier.  I wish all the local oncology departments would educate their patients about the difference between machine made and hand tied wigs!

 

10-13-13

Thank you so much for your attention and care.   I left your studio in a good mood (for the first time in a long time!).  I  checked the binder Kaiser Oakland put together for women with Breast Cancer.  There is a page of wig shop recommendations but I suspect they are all inferior machine made wigs.  I feel there should be a page in there on how to select a wig and the difference between machine made and hand made.  Let me know if you're interested in being included in their resources.  Once again thank you for making a big difference in the quality of my life!  Donna

I was thinking of getting some type of wig or extension. Nothing terribly wrong with my hair but it is thinning. I was not sure if this was a good idea or not. They came up with a solution that looks great and feels comfortable.   It is quite natural-looking. Appointment only- it is private and they spend time with you, very personalized service. They feel that hair extensions are damaging to the hair and scalp and some of their work is in covering damage from extensions. They have other partial pieces. Many of their customers are people who are having chemotherapy.

i wouldn't go anywhere else after finding this place. these guys are truly professional in every sense of the word. appointments are necessary so they can focus all their attention on you. the wigs are beautiful and worth the price. great selection of hats and scarves also.

One Bite at a Time, Revised: Nourishing Recipes for Cancer Survivors and Their Friends

The cookbook is called "One Bite at a Time". I have the second edition, which I was told is better than the first. The author/chef is Rebecca Katz. She has several restaurants in SF. I am totally addicted to the Almond Torte and the other night I had chicken with lemon, orange juice (fresh), capers and kalama olives. My totally wonderful and awesome chemo nurse turned me onto it and even my husband, who would rather have a Manwich, has liked the recipes so far. The only draw back is buying all the initial ingredients that is needed, but she has a pantry list in the back of the book. Just Google the book and it will come up. I got mine for $16 on E bay.

   Thank you so much for your absolutely beautiful products. I feel much more confident now. Thank you.

    This was a wonderful experience from start to finish.  I did not plan on purchasing a wig, but I did and I couldn't be happier.  No hard sell, just a lot of useful information about chemo & hair loss.  Don't waste your time looking around the bay area for a wig salon.  Make an appointment at Studio International, sit back, relax, enjoy and know that you are in the hands of experts.  Thank you!

Hello, 

I just wanted to tell you what happened with your beautiful wig. As I
mentioned, the surgeons at UCSF were very kind and spared my hair. People
really can't tell I had anything done.  So, what to do with the beautiful
long blond human hair wig? I prayed that I could find someone who really
needed it.

  Shortly after I wrote to you about the situation, my friend's daughter
learned that her cancer had returned with a vengeance. Her daughter is a
lovely young college student, newly married, and interestingly, interning in
her studies at a cancer institute. My friend was leaving a few days later to
go down to help her daughter through the worst of the chemo. This young
woman and her husband face the financial challenges that all college
students face.  Their issues are amplified by her medical crisis. Certainly
no money for a wig. But this girl has long blond hair! So when I told her
mother about the wig I had, she cried. She left a few days later with the
long blond wig and stand in her suitcase. And her daughter looks as
beautiful as she did before, while she battles her disease. God does answer
prayers!  

Just wanted to share that story with you. You do so much to help people in
their most vulnerable states. God bless you for the good work you do!

Michael & Dennis,  

Thanks for the quick delivery of my new prosthetic wig.  I love everything about it.  You were right about it staying on without tapes.  The color is beautiful, so bright and natural.

The weightlessness of the wig is wonderful, no heaviness of any kind.

Next time, I want it  little lighter color, but in the same tones, maybe even with some streaking (or whatever  you call it).  However, with the new colors, I don't know what to choose. (HELP!) 

Thanks again for the call and the quick response.

One completely satisfied customer, 

Carolyn

Hi Michael:

 I had my hair styled today by David at Joseph Cozza Salon and it  is just super. Also, the wig fits so well that I cannot tell I am wearing it. 

David did such a super duper job. Best hair I have ever had.

Hello Dennis: 

Just wanted to let you know that the appointment with David went very well.  She really felt great after he cut her hair and gave her additional tips.  He was wonderful with her, just like you were!

 We appreciate your kindness and sensitivity to her hair loss and look forward to working with you in the future to obtain the perfect addition.

 Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving.   

Warm regards,

Janis

Dennis:


My daughter and I are very grateful to you for the time that you spent with us on Thursday.  Your products are lovely and it is a great comfort for her to know that there is something available for her as her thinning advances.  She took your advice and has made an appointment for a hair cut with David.

You provide a wonderful service and your kindness and professionalism are much appreciated.

Regards,

Janis

Being in the public eye daily, I wanted to keep my cancer a private matter. Between my wonderful doctors and these guys taking care of my hair loss, I made it through it, privately, with my family. Didn't think it would be possible but it was. Just a big Thank You!

I wanted to thank  you for your consultation yesterday. It was so kind of you to take the time to calm me and down and advise me on proper hair care. I brushed my hair thoroughly this morning remained calm for the first time in a while. After that initial brushing, very few hairs have fallen out! Nevertheless, it is such a comfort to know that if the shedding continues, the hair augmentation piece is available.

 

I have been going to Studio Hair for years. Michael is just so wonderful and has always taken such good care of me. At first I just had some extra hair added for fullness. Now I lost all of my hair from chemotherapy and needed even more hair. I can't say enough good things about them. -Peggy
 
Michael was very helpful for my first online purchase- I have made a second purchase and will purchase again from Michael- very easy to deal with. Highly recommend!

Hi Michael and Dennis,

I just wanted to let you both know how much the 2 wigs, no, I'm sorry, "cranial hair prosthetics", have enhanced my life.  Everyone, and I DO mean EVERYONE, has noticed my "new do" and compliments me on it.  My family is getting sick of hearing the constant compliments.  It was just like when I had gastric bypass surgery and dropped 100 lbs.; people couldn't stop being amazed at my transformation then as they do now.  They all say my new hairstyle makes me look younger.  I can't thank you enough for educating me and helping me select the perfect wigs for me.  I am following all of your steps in submitting my claim to my insurance and we'll see how it goes.  I find the tips very helpful and your suggestions show how you really do go "the extra mile" for your clients.

You can be sure I will be purchasing more wigs from you in the future.

I am telling all my friends in Oregon and elsewhere who know my "new do" is a wig (only because I told them) about you and your great service at Studio International, Inc.

In gratitude,

AR..

I initially found them online but decided to show up at their door to have a look at their store, only to learn it's strictly by appointment only. But they were very gracious and took the time to visit with me anyway and to assess my needs. I detected impeccable integrity and stellar professionalism. They were very clear about their mission and their product. They cater mainly to women with hair loss. They carry very uncompromised quality wigs and hair pieces, and provide individualized service to their clientele. I highly recommend them, whether you are seeking to solve hair loss issues or just going for a fresh new look.

Their service and product are par excellence!

 

I value the quality service these professionals give to their clients. They cater to women with hair loss issues and treat them with great care and sensitivity.

Kind considerate and sensitive to the needs of clients

I received this wig and immediately brought it to my beautician for a cut and style. Both, he and I are very impressed with the quality of the hair, the way the wig is made, how it looks, and how it feels to the touch. After he cut it, he simply combed it into a very flattering simple style and sent me on my way. The hair in this wig has a natural wave and needs very little to make it look good. A really good buy!

Huh? Why no reviews yet?

My niece recently purchased a wig from this store and as apprehensive as she was about the buying process, she got back to the car where I was waiting and she had nothing but glowing praise regarding this company. Even more importantly, a wig that made her look as if she still had her own hair. (She's currently on chemotherapy and lost all her hair.)

I was told that the gentleman who assisted her was incredibly knowledgeable and offered incredible customer service.

I highly recommend this excellent company!

Fabulous Hair!

Despaired of finding wigs that looked natural  & good.  But the wigs here   are fabulous.  Am in chemo so I wanted the wig to look good and to  make me feel good wearing it.  Liked them so much I got two and will probably get a third.  The staff is great, very helpful and understanding of whatever your reasons for wig.

Good Morning-
  
I just wanted to let you know that I am totally thrilled with my purchase.  It has changed my life!
 I was using a very messy "spray" to hide my seriously thinning hair....it worked, but with  a series of  inefficiencies....BUT NOW-I am free! 

The hair is beautiful, the curl, the thickness, the natural appearance, what a difference.  Compliments are flying....

My hairdresser trimmed it up and it is impossible to tell that this is not all mine!
 
Today I celebrate my 50th birthday, this was my gift to me and it was perfect!

Hi and thanks for being available to answer all my questions!  Buying a wig is a bit like riding a roller coaster - kinda scary!
 
Thank you so much for being THE salon that offers the best quality (I have checked over 30!!!) largest selection AND a specialist to answer questions!  From someone who has done quite a bit of research over the last week, you are by far #1!
 
kindest regards,

I purchased this wig and absolutely love it!
It is soft, supple and easily put on and off with the tapes, glue and removed with the adhesive solvent. I was going to a salon for hair replacement and paying a lot of money to do what I could do at home. Most people have no idea that I am wearing a wig. I will be purchasing more product from this site in the near future. This is fabulous!. I sleep in it shower in it and wear it with confidence every day! Thank you so much!

Hi Studio Hair

It's been a pleasure working with you and your advice was right on target each time. I went through years of wearing wigs in which were never comfortable and looked wiggy. I've now purchased 4 from you're Prosthetic Quality line and boy, I get compliments on my hair now! It's made my life with Alopecia a nicer place to be.

Will be placing another order soon!

Hi there

My family has been blessed with thin hair and have used hair systems for many years. My brother referred me to this site after ordering a full men's cranial prostheses and having such great results. I wear a partial system in which a well known hair replacement center in my city was charging me over $2000 to have each piece custom made. I now pay a fraction of this with Studio Hair and find the quality actually much better.

Thanks again

I have had Alopecia Totalis for many years and have tried many wigs. The Studio Hair Cranial R/X is the nicest wig I have ever worn. It has such a fine base and stays on so well that even if someone where to touch my head, it's as if nothing is there. What a life saver! I was paying twice as much in a local salon and the quality could not compare.

I've had long hair all my life. I began thinning on the sides and back in my 40\'s. The hair on top seems fine. The Studio Enhancer works perfect for me. No hassle and looks great again.
