Try It: Hair Extensions
Hair loss among women isn’t often talked about, but it’s traumatic, and even more so when a wedding date is approaching. Most salons offer hair extensions, but you need a certain amount of hair to begin with. The team at MHN specializes in hair loss for men and women, and deals with clients in a kind and sensitive manner. Consultant Flora Fuentes takes measurements of the balding area and snips a piece of your existing hair to ensure the texture matches exactly. After about six weeks, the ultrathin mesh unit arrives and is attached to the scalp using polymer adhesive (the same solution doctors use to seal wounds without stitches), so it lies flat and looks and feels natural, unlike many of the weaves and wigs on the market. Prices begin at $1,500, but when you walk down the aisle with a fabulously textured chignon, you’ll know it was worth it.
