Five Prominent Celebrities Who Regularly Wear Hair Systems

Deciding to use wigs and toupees is tough for many men, as they’re often concerned with wearing the one that does not look natural. However, the right hair system can make thinning hair look youthful and lush. That's why many of Hollywood's leading men use hair systems. If hair systems are good enough for these five men in the public eye, then they can work for you, too! John Travolta We all remember “Saturday Night Fever,” during which Travolta danced at discos while showing off a luscious mane of hair. Unfortunately for him, age has thinned those once-beloved locks. A hair system have helped Travolta combat Father Time skillfully, though. Whether he's playing Vincent Vega in “Pulp Fiction” or sporting a sparkling salt-and-pepper look for “The Forger,” hair systems have allowed Travolta to continue to land leading roles well into his 60s. Nicolas Cage There are obvious parallels to Travolta, as Cage is roughly the same age with a similar resume. They even starred together in the 1997 thriller “Face/Off.” Like his co-star, Cage also has used hair systems when playing certain characters. While Cage has been open to playing roles that expose his hair loss, he's definitely rocked a hair system in movies such as “Con-Air.” Anyone who's seen that movie knows his long locks were way more believable than his Southern accent. Robert Pattinson Not all stars who wear hair systems are "old," as the 29-year-old Pattinson has been fighting hair loss since his early 20s. You wouldn't know it from watching the Twilight movies, but being Team Edward means being Team hair system. Pattinson pulls off his hair skillfully, as evidenced by the adoration of millions of teenage girls. Odds are his adoring masses have no idea [...]

Finding Your Solution: Laser Treatments

There are a number of solutions available for specific types of hair loss and styling needs, and speaking with a specialist is the best way to decide which hair restoration avenue is the best for you. Today, Van Scoy takes a look at 4 common questions associated with laser treatments. “I thought laser treatments were for hair removal! How can they serve both purposes?” Good question! Lasers can indeed work for both hair removal and restoration and have been used for removal for decades while their approved application for restoration is relatively recent. There are various types and levels of lasers though, and those disparities along with the way in which they are applied produce different results. Laser hair removal, for example, involves purposeful, targeted damaging of follicles at a specific wavelength. Laser hair treatments for restoration, on the other hand, use low level, therapeutic, soft, “cold” lasers to deliver light energy to the scalp and generate blood flow rather than damage. In fact, similar lasers have been used for wound healing for a long time. “Will there be any cutting or burns?” No. Laser treatments are non-invasive, non-surgical, non-burning, and non-painful. “What can I expect my overall treatment experience to look like?” Your hair restoration specialist will work with you to set a regular schedule for office visits. Each person is different, but this often means 2-3 sessions of 10-20 minutes per week for 3-12 months. During the treatments, you can simply relax, read a magazine, and take a small break from the day. If you are unable to make regular appointments, at-home treatments are also available. Van Scoy Hair Clinics recommends that laser hair therapy be approached as a 3-step treatment program, which means ongoing attentiveness [...]
