John's Story

As our appearance is something that we are either complimented or judged on more and more these days my hairline was something that I have always worried about, over the years I've tried numerous ways at hiding my hair and used many products that claim to restore your hair and everything failed. I have always been conscious of my hair line to the point it has impacted things that I've done in my day to day life, jobs that I had applied for and even general nights out with friends. A few weeks ago my friend referred me to Harley Jo Hair for a consultation and within one week of my original appointment I was back and having my system fitted, it took roughly 2 hours and was styled to exactly what I was looking for, I couldn't believe the answer to what I was looking for was so close to me but I knew nothing about it.. A few days after my treatment I was a member of the wedding party for my sisters big day and system gave me the confidence and happiness to stand in front of our family and friends during the ceremony without worrying for once about my hair and for once I actually enjoyed having my pictures taken all day. When I arrived at the salon I was promptly met with very professional staff, the salon is very cosy and private and having my treatment carried out in such a relaxed environment made me forget that I was ever nervous before I arrived. After having my system fitted I was shocked at how natural it looks and the hairline is perfect, the hair itself can be treated as normal with styling products and there aren't really any restrictions like swimming etc so I can't wait for my next holiday either! I can't thanks the staff at HJO highly enough for what they have done for me, the system has literally changed my life and the only regret that I have is that I didn't do this sooner, for anyone thinking it what they should do.. Go for it :) x

Martin's Story

After years of suffering from hair loss and trying to find a solution to the problem with not much success I discovered Total Cover Plus Hair Systems. At first I was sceptical about it due to what people would think and I was worried about how long it would last and if it would come off. I decided to go for it and within a week I was getting the system fitted, I'll be honest I was nervous about the process but once I saw the result I had a smile on my face. I couldn't even tell where my actual hair started due to how well the system blended in. Since I got my system fitted my whole life has turned around and my confidence is through the roof. I am more outgoing and involved with my friends more. People on the street treat me so differently now. Safe to say I am now happier than I've been in years. I owe all my thanks to Shirley and her staff for the great friendly environment, making you feel comfortable in a nervous situation.

Ryan's Story

Hi, My name is Ryan, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour when I was 15, due to the radiotherapy and chemotherapy I lost most of my hair which did not grow back again. I was referred to dermatologist to discuss what options I had. After much discussion I decided the best choice for me was to get a hair system. I have had a few different hair systems. I am now using a new system from Total Cover Plus, this has been by far the best. It has a soft base, natural looking hair and when fitted I often forget I am even wearing it. It can be made to fit all areas of the head or the full head and can be made in any colour. It can also be cut and styled to almost any hairstyle. I had my system fitted, cut, and styled at Harley Jo's by Shirley and her team who are all professional hair dressers, they made a great job of it and made me feel very welcome. It did not take long to do, they were very efficient and the salon was very private which made my experience a lot more comfortable. I have now been there a few times and have been very pleased with the result every time. I can now look towards the future more confident and do not need to worry about my hair.

John's Story

My name is John and here is my story...I first began to notice that my hair was thinning slightly and receeding around the age of 21, being an image conscious young guy people would make jokes and tease me about how it looked and how I had my fathers genetics (my dad has very little hair). At the beginning I just laughed it off but as the hairloss progressed my self esteem and confidence plummeted, I had always been an outgoing bubbly individual but my lack of hair made me feel self conscious and paranoid, and I was now making jokes about my hair loss before anyone else did. Over the years I tried various creams and shampoos to no avail and even considered buying medication online as I had been turned away from my GP for prescription drugs as they deemed by obsession with hairloss to be ''cosmetic & vain'' . The reality of my hairloss was taking over my life, I was socialising less and less and refused to have any pictures taken on nights out or family events as my scalp was visible in every photo. A fter I turned 25 in September 2013 I began to look into more invasive procedures ie Hair transplants etc but was left feeling deflated after reading such negative reviews on how people had spent thousands of pounds on tranplants with such poor results. It was then I came across Shirley johns of Hjo Restoration whilst doing an internet search offering a solution to hair loss with instant results and no painful surgery or prescription drugs with side effects, already knowing Shirley personally I decided to contact her for more information and it was then she refered me to Totalcoverplus and their various youtube videos. Within minutes of watching the videos I knew I needed to have this hair system in my life and booked a consultaion with Shirley in December 2013. At the consultation I was extremely nervous as I was unsure if I was a suitable candidate for the procedure or how I would feel with Shirley examining my balding scalp. Within minutes of entering the salon I felt completely at ease, the atmosphere is so relaxed and everybody is so welcoming and friendly, they see several people each day with the same condition yet you are made to feel like an individual. Suffering from hair loss herself Shirley is very understanding and knows exactly how you feel without being patronising. I was advised what would be entailed in the process and a skin test was done where Shirley attached a small part of the system to my forearm to show how the system would appear on skin contact, I was blown away and booked in to have my system fitted .On January of this year I had my first system fitted and was extremely nervous, this was partly due to the fact that part of my head had to be shaved to allow the system to bond to the skin but again Shirley reassured me that it would all be worth it in the end. When the system was first applied my new head of hair resembled a judges wig (haha) and I began to panic but within minutes Shirley was working her magic and transforming my new head of hair into a tailored hairstyle that we had agreed on. Shirley checked throughout that I was happy with the length of the hair and style she was creating. It was then time for the final reveal of my ''Boyband quiff' and I was absolutely speechless. Long gone was my balding head and instead a perfect full head of hair. The system itself is very comfortable to wear and it feels like your own hair. The confidence the system has given me is un-believable I am back to my old bubbly self and walk with my head held high, I finally feel ''normal'' and comfortable in my own skin, all of my friends and family know that I wear a system as I don't feel it is something I should hide, Girls wear extensions false nails lashes and tan so why cant us guys have a little help ? .The system is virtually undetectable and a passing stranger would never know I am a system wearer , The aftercare provided by Shirley and her team is second to none and she is always at the other end of the phone for any questions or queries you have. I personally cannot thank Shirley enough for what she has done for me..To everyone else she has given me a head of hair.. but to me she has given me my life back. The work she does is outstanding and she really is changing lives <3 ..Thanks again Shirley I cant wait for my next system and ever changing hairstyles I left your salon with a new head of hair bags of confidence and a friend for life xxx

But now Dianne, 49, has got her confidence back after being fitted with an integrated lace hair system from HJO Hair Restoration and Aesthetics in Glasgow, where real hair is interwoven to cover her bald patches.
