Head Games: Simple Abundance

Fashion commentator and creative ambassador for Barneys New York Simon Doonan wrote an essay for slate.com recently that pondered the rise of “implausibly abundant fake hair.” Hairdressers, he suggested, have gone from working with a “certain amount of subtlety and restraint” to adding so much fake hair that women— he uses the Real Housewives of Atlanta as an example—resemble the Duke of Marlborough. Might as well ride the fashion wave while it lasts, dear stylists, and we’re here to help you separate the wheat from the chaff. 

INTERNATIONAL HAIR GOODS

The company offers Micro Point Solutions to fill in where extensions can’t. Links are like non-surgical transplants, allowing you to add four hairs to one existing hair with no glue or adhesives. Try them on the top of the head where they can really add volume. Accents, which can be used to fill in areas where hair is weak or thin, feature 100 hairs on a small, sterling silver bead that is crimped onto the client’s hair.
