It’s already happening: New Jersey stylist uses 3D printer to make bespoke hairpieces

Covering the work of Transitions Hair Studio in New Jersey, a company that specialises in the Cesare Ragazzi hair replacement system, the video demonstrates the process of clients having their scalp meticulously measured, and the details fired over to Italy to create a perfect mould of their scalp.

Here’s the science part…

This mould is then used to create a perfect 3D printout of a breathable, super-thin membrane which acts as the base of a permanently fastened hairpiece. From here on in, traditional hairpiece techniques take over.

The membrane undergoes a comprehensive and meticulous stitching-in of real hair, which duplicates the client’s locks in colour, texture, and the way it falls. Then it’s affixed to the scalp with a special medical adhesive, resulting in a hairpiece that acts as a second scalp, never slipping out of place or irritating the user.

Don’t want a hairpiece? Try SMP

Of course, the idea of a permanent hairpiece glued to the scalp isn’t for everyone, so if you’re looking for a stylish alternative, why not look into Scalp MicroPigmentation?

SMP is an incredibly detailed procedure which creates a sophisticated and realistic simulation of micro hairs which involves no surgery, no scarring and no hairpieces.

What’s more, it requires very little in the way of on-going maintenance – although many clients return every now and then to update their look.

No matter what your skin type, SMP can provide a natural, discreet solution to your hair loss issues. For further information, visit our hair loss treatment page.
