When your hair comes in they appy it with GLUE and tape!! Then 1/2 way thru the application a sales person comes in and tells you that you need to join a monthly plan renging from $299.00 TO $900.00 PER MONTH!
or you can optout of the plans and purchase additional heads of hair at $1,500.00 each!!.
When the hair is applied The stylist then proceeeds to style the hair DOWN to cover the VERY detectable new hair line that would be clearly visable to anyone with eyes had it not been covered by hair brushed forward and down to cover the wig on a thick itchy mesh that they just GLUED to your head. For get about any style that you may want to have it will be what the hair will do.
When you get home if you are one of the lucky ones your hair will look good from a distrance (now remember that the HCM studios / saloon has ok lighing at best this is so you cant see the hair in bright light) but if you look in a mirrior that is is the sun you will notice all the FRIZZY hairs sticking out at all different lenghts everywhere. you will also note that the hair strands all all different colors. O and by now the front TAPED own hair has probably started to come off.
The following day if you shower the hair will most likey start to fall off. You will call HCM and they will have you come in wher they will remove the hair and reapply the hair with "Crazy Glue" (HCM calls it Permam bond) never the less if you sweat swimm or ride a bike Make sure you have your hat with you!!
As soon as you start to sweat the front tape will start to come off or become a thick gooy mess. If the goo gets in the hair forget about it is is all over. You will need to use a citrus solvent to get it out.
HCM tells you that you need to come back every 6 to 8 weeks for maintenance when you go in for your initial consult and the cost of
The fact is you need to pay $1500 TO $2700 DOLLARS up front then join a plan for $300.00 to $900.00 per month (the lesser plans only offer 5 services you will be charged $95.00 for additional service)
If you are extreamly luck your hair piece will stay glued on for 2 to 3 weeks. I have been an unhappy memeber for 5 years and have yet to make it past 3 weeks without total detachment occuring. So if you will use up all your services in 3 months..
All in all Hair clubs are a lie. there adds are a lie. HCM intentinally makes it seem that you pay the $1500 TO $2700 DOLLARS up front and the hair will last years!! That is so so far from the Truth. This companys FALSE advertising and deceptice practice must be investigated and stopped!
HCM does serve a purpose and does provide a somewhat usable product but it is so so far off form what thay advertises and tell you during consultations that somthing must be done!!
