What is Encore?
Encore is not one solution, but a “platform” upon which a variety of solutions to your female pattern baldness can be based, depending upon the degree and location(s) of your thinning hair.
At the heart of Encore is beautiful, shiny, utterly life- like 100 % human hair. The hair is integrated to a grid or network of fibers that are nearly invisible to the human eye. The grid mmm, allows Encore the flexibility required to solve almost any pattern and degree of female pattern baldness.
For example, the grid can contain a small amount of hair or a larger amount, depending upon the degree of coverage needed. The grid itself can be widened or narrowed to accommodate the exact size of the hair loss area. The grid can also be adjusted to accommodate the location of the hair loss, whether it’s the frontal hairline, anterior scalp, a diffused progression on the top of the scalp, or any combination thereof.
How does Encore work?
The grid pattern of Encore is established by the individual woman’s state of hair loss. Where the hair is thinning, what areas are not afflicted, and the degree of thinning respective to specific areas, are all taken into consideration.
The next area of examination is the individual’s growing hair in areas where there is no thinning. The hair’s growth pattern, its degree of density, and the confluence of other factors that affect how the woman’s hair falls and lies are also determined.
This information is then used to create the Encore grid and to properly integrate the amount and direction of the hair that will be inserted into the grid.
Then there’s the hair itself. Is the individual’s hair fine, coarse, or somewhere in between? Has it been subject to coloring and other chemicals? Is it straight or is there a curl or gentle wave?
What about color? Does the client want to maintain the current color of her hair? Does she wish to lighten or soften it? Or choose something entirely different altogether?
The following information also determines how Encore will be designed for the individual: Which areas require supplementation, which will need to be supplanted entirely, how much of the client’s existing hair can be incorporated in the process, and the type and condition of the woman’s hair that will be incorporated. These are all factors that enable Encore to be custom-tailored to solve a woman’s specific hair loss problem.
Let’s say a woman came to us with extensive hair loss in the beginning of the anterior scalp, an inch and a half from the forward-most reaches of her natural hairline. Let’s also say that the hair loss in the anterior scalp diminished as it progressed rearward to the point where full hair growth was
evident forward of the crown.
Let’s also say that other than that, this woman has normal, healthy hair growth in every other portion of her scalp. The growth is of medium density without any other distinguishing characteristics.
To further complete the picture, the hypothetical woman we are discussing has hair that is fine to medium in body. Assume also that her hair has not been subjected to excessive chemicals or coloring. This hypothetical woman has decided to continue with her current hair color, a medium to dark brown and also to continue with her current length, which is just slightly above the shoulder.
The Encore augmentation that would be designed to solve this particular woman’s problem would begin with fine-to-medi-um-body 100 % human hair. Individual hairs that would range in color from medium to dark brown would be selected for the process. These individual hairs would be blended together to match the woman’s current tonal hair color; blending avoids the unnatural “one of machine-made wigs.
The custom grid into which would be designed to provide maximum cosmetic Coverage in order to supplant the missing hair in the forward anterior scalp area. The amount of coverage would decrease as it moved rearward, acting to supplement the womaws own thinning, but still growing, hair. Where the womalfs full growth begins, the Encore grid would end.
The area of full coverage would match the density of the woman’s own hair in non-afflicted areas of her scalp. As her thinning hair becomes more full, the amount of hair provided in the supplemental areas would decrease in order to provide uniform density; in all cases, the womaws own hair would be used to the fullest possible extent.
The aforementioned steps ensure that there is no delineation, in either density or color, between the womaifs own hair and the new hair supplemented by Encore.
Using our hypothetical woman as an example, the effects of having Encore hair augmentation would be profound.
Her hairline, which was never affected by thinning, would remain the same. However, instead of giving way to a very thin/nearly bald area, her hairline would now progress normally: she would have the gradual increase in hair density from hairline to anterior scalp that she had before she started losing her hair.
The thinning hair that followed her thin/bald area into the mid-scalp would now also be supplemented. It would match the hair density that was supplanted at the beginnings of her anterior scalp area. The same density in the mid-scalp would then blend into the normal density of her growing hair at the forward edge of the crown.
As well, all areas that had been augmented by Encore would progress scamlessly and without transition into the normal growing hair found at the sides of her scalp. The fact that the color, pattern and texture of her new Encore hair matches her normally growing hair, adds to the illusion that the new hair introduced to her scalp is actually growing hair.

To a large extent, Encore also improves your quality of life. You won’t have to worry where you sit in a restaurant because the light might be hitting you in a certain way that could highlight your hair’s thinness. You won’t have to worry about bending down where
others might be able to more fully see the thinness of your hair. In fact, you’ll never have to worry about any of the things that have troubled you since you started losing your hair.
With Encore, you’ll look at yourself as you did before you started losing your hair. And so will everyone else.
