Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs

I don't know what treatment option would be best for me, should I book a consultation?

You can, but first give us a call on 01-8824013, we’ll be able to chat to you about your individual situation and help narrow down the most suitable treatment options for you based on your needs, preferences, lifestyle and level of hair loss. You can also whatsapp your pics / videos to us on 0858640738 for more detailed advice.

How do I book a consultation and how much is it?

Give us a call on 01-8824013 and we’ll have a chat about your needs, the treatments you’re interested in and answer any questions you have and then we’ll book you in for your consultation. The consultation is €50 and we take this by card over the phone when booking your appointment. Consultations are on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays each week.

How do I prepare for my consultation?

Have your hair and scalp washed and no hair products like fibers or concealer on your hair and scalp. Make sure to have your hair at least 2cm long. This allows us to take a hair sample for colour matching in the case of getting a hair system and makes it easier to see your hair growth patterns and the areas where your hair needs to be replaced.

What important question should I ask any consultant?

Can you do the procedure from start to finish yourself and if the answer is no, it’s best to find a consultant that can and understands the job from start to finish so you get the best results.

How long is the consultation?

Normally about 1.5 hours to 2 hours.

Will I get to meet Jamie Kidd?

Yes! Every consultation is with Jamie Kidd.

Is there parking?

There is on street parking on Lindsay road and other surrounding side streets. And there’s parking in the Brian Boru / Hedigan’s pub carpark across the road. Both are pay and display so don’t forget to buy a ticket or you could get clamped.

Is there any public transport like buses and trains near your clinic?

Yes, there is a busstop across the road, one right outside our clinic with many bus routes including the 4, 9, 40, 40D, 83, 140, 155.

Drumcondra Train Station is about a 5-10 minute walk away.

 

Do you offer finance or payment plans?

Hair System FAQs

Can I achieve a natural look?

Absolutely! A well-crafted hair replacement system from JK Hair Replacement can be indistinguishable from your natural hair. Check out our video gallery and you’ll see for yourself just how real and natural our hair systems are! Follow us on tiktok too to see more real time, real life JK hair systems!

How undetectable are JK's hair systems?

Our hair systems are exceptionally discreet and natural-looking. In fact, they are so undetectable that many of our clients report even their partners are unaware they are wearing a hair system. This level of discretion is a testament to the quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail that go into every JK Hair Replacement system.

Can I go to the gym, can I swim, have saunas, showers etc?

Everything you did you can continue to do with a hair system.

Will my hair system ever just fall off?

This is the most frequently asked question we get and the answer is NO, as long as you come in when you are supposed to for your refusions and follow the aftercare advice. Also, when you are due for your refusion, you will notice the bond will feel a little softer so that lets you know you need to get your maintenance done.

Can you get a small system for my front hairline?

Unfortunately not. As a system made that small and that shape wouldn’t have enough surface area for grip.

Can I get a small system just for my crown area?

Yes. As although small the shape of a system made for this area would provide enough grip so that the system would remain firmly in place.

When does my head get shaved in the area the hair system is going?

On the day of your fitting of your hair system, as part of the fitting process, we shave down the thin hair in the area where the hair system will be positioned.

Why do you recommend two hair systems?

The easiest way to answer this is ‘would you only have one pair of shoes to wear constantly for months on end?’ It’s always good to have two so that you can have a back up and it also helps extend the life of both systems. As human hair is a natural fiber, over time it gets worn, like a wool jumper does, so it’s always important to have a second system there for when you need it. Another benefit is that it speeds up refusion appointments as we can have your other system ready to go on which can save you lots of time!

How Undetectable are Your Hair Systems?

Our hair systems are exceptionally discreet and natural-looking. In fact, they are so undetectable that many of our clients report even their partners are unaware they are wearing a hair system. This level of discretion is a testament to the quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail that go into every JK Hair Replacement system.

How long after I order will I get my hair system(s)?

All our systems are custom designed and handmade. Each hair strand is put in by hand so it takes on average 4-5 months to make. That’s why we recommend ordering two at a time to make sure you always have one there ready to go.

How long do they last?

It’s hard to accurately predict because it depends on many factors such as how well you maintain it, the activities you do etc. but as a general guide our systems last 6-8 months with proper care.

How often do I need to order a new system?

Every 6-8 months. We recommend ordering your next system when you get your new one fitted as they take 4-5 months on average to make but sometimes longer so it’s important to be prepared.

Why do they take so long to make?

All our systems are custom designed and handmade. Each hair strand is put in by hand so it takes on average 4-5 months to make. They are fully custom. Some other companies offer faster times but this is generally because they get off the shelf systems and cut them down to size rather than custom.

I have an event coming up and can't wait 4-5 months for a system, can you do it faster?

Sometimes we can offer you a priority service that will reduce wait times by 3-4 weeks or longer depending on your system specifications. We’ll be able to advise you at your consultation if this is possible. Priority service is an additional €150.

How often do I need to come in for refusions/maintenance?

It is very important to come in regularly for your refusions and maintenance to ensure your hair and scalp stay hygienic and healthy, your hair system stays in excellent condition and most importantly that it remains fully secure. Most clients need to come in every 3-4 weeks. Some more active clients need to come in more often like every two weeks.

What if I need maintenance while travelling abroad?

If you’re travelling abroad for an extended period, there’s no need to worry about maintaining your hair system. At JK Hair Replacement, we have established relationships with clinics worldwide.

Simply inform us about your travel destination, and we will coordinate with a local clinic to arrange your maintenance appointments. This ensures that you receive uninterrupted, high-quality care for your hair system, no matter where you are in the world.
