Hairstylist Goes Viral for Non-Surgical Hair Replacements on Bald Men

 

A Rhode Island hairdresser has gone viral after using innovative hair replacements to transform men who are losing or have already lost their hair.

Phil Ring uses hair pieces made by Hairskeen USA to give balding guys a new 'do without undergoing painful surgery, and these can last for months. UNILAD describes the process as "comical" as Phil "essentially sticks the hair to the scalp with what looks like double-sided tape and PVA glue"—a process that's been proven to be rather effective, cheap, and pain-free.

The hairstylist said many think his process is similar to toupees, hairpieces usually used to cover bald spots and are taken on and off every day. However, the Hairskeens pieces only need to be replaced every two to six months—"sometimes longer for guests that take extra great care of it," Ring said.

UNILAD, a British Internet media company, says the entire process takes around three hours and costs only $850 for the first hair replacement service—significantly cheaper than invasive hair transplant surgery that costs around $8,500. Subsequent re-attachment services range from $175 to $210.

Ring shared his work on video-sharing platform TikTok, where his before-and-after clips gathered up to 200 million views, to remove the stigma attached to hair replacement in men.

"I just want people to know that hair replacement is just on the verge of being the next big salon service and I hope with more stylists learning and brands showing up we can really innovate some new products," the hairdresser explained.

Talking about the success of his work, Ring said it's "so rewarding" whenever he has return clients, who felt happy when people can't tell if they were wearing a hair replacement. He added that most of his guests went back to dating after getting the replacements and that he believes "that says a lot for the confidence hair can bring on someone."
