This is one of the most frequently asked questions by most of our probable clients. The short answer to this question is that ‘it depends?’! It depends on multiple things such as the quality of the hair used, type of base material, amount of customization, durability of hair systems etc. For example, you may not know, but even within Human Hair, there are plenty of different varieties from very cheap (eg Parlor Hair) to very expensive (Remy Temple Hair). There are some suppliers who mix animal fibers or synthetic fibres in the systems which again reduce the cost of hair replacement systems significantly. Apart from this, what clients fail to understand is that there are almost hundreds of different base materials to choose from which vary significantly in prices. There are plenty of base materials which look very similar but are very different in quality (in terms of weight, sweat evaporation, ventilation etc). The non surgical hair replacement cost in Pune will vary from somewhere around 10k to 1L. At Papillon Hair World, our Hair Replacement services start at around 20k and go upto around Rs. 1.2L depending on the type of base material, number of hair patches ordered, service package selected etc.
We are among the very few Hair Replacement Providers in India who can offer ‘real customization’. A lot of clients feel that only customization possible in hair systems is in terms of size. Totally wrong! Papillon Hair World offers hair system customization such as low density hair systems, grey hair percentages, different tones of brown hair upto blonde shades, different textures such as straight, wavy, curly etc in our Hair Systems / Hair Patches and much more. You will find a lot of hair replacement centers in Pune and in India who merely say that they customize hair systems and in reality just provide you a stock system without customizing even the size of the base material.
There are multiple ways in which you can fix the hair replacement systems / hair patches. In most of the fixing methods such as Clipping, Clip + Tape, Taping, Hair Weaving maintenance will only be required once in 45 to 60 days depending on your hair growth rate. All the basic things such as washing, fixing and removal, styling etc are taught to you by the Papillon Staff so that you can manage these on your own at your home. So only when your natural hair grows long enough to give you a messy look, you will require a hair replacement service session with us. There is another popular method of Hair Fixing which is known as Chemical Bonding of Hair Replacement systems. In this method, considering the humid climate and high amount of pollution in Indian cities, the Hair System / Hair Patch will stay fixed on your scalp for around 20 – 25 days. However, in this method you will not be able to do the removal / fixing at home and hence you will have to come back to us for the maintenance service sessions of the Hair Replacement System almost every three weeks. We, at Papillon Hair World look at the lifestyle of the client, grade of baldness and other parameters and preferences before suggesting the right method of fixing to all our Hair Replacement clients.
This is probably the 2nd or 3rd most commonly asked question by our clients. This is perhaps the biggest fear in all the first time users of Hair Replacement Services. To answer this honestly, we will mention what our CEO, Mr. Aniket Koparkar says to all the clients – “Ultimately we are not magicians. So do not expect yourself or your very closed ones to not see any change in your look. We are doing this precisely because we want to change your look. However, with our level of skills, expertise and customization, the Papillon Hair Replacement systems will look perfectly natural to any third person looking at you. Even standing besides you in a function, or at a meeting table will not stare at you objectionably. This is certainly what we can achieve. However, the most needed ingredient for carrying a hair system / hair patch successfully is the client’s own confidence. That is only one thing which WE cannot give from our end!”
We urge all our clients to visit our store to check the variety of options available in the Hair Replacement Systems and then place the order. Once the client is satisfied about the quality offered at Papillon and once the client decides to place an order, our senior stylist takes all the necessary details such as the Head Size, Hair Color, Choice of Style, Hair Density etc (depending on the product). Once the order is placed and the required details are taken by our stylist, it takes 15-21 working days on average for us to schedule an appointment for the fixing the Hair Replacement System. In case of high amount of customization, it might take more amount of time to get the customized systems designed from our factories.

Taping : The taping method is suggested for those who are willing to maintain the hair replacement system on a weekly basis on their own. Usually it is a method suggested for out of India, or out of city clients who are unable to come for the maintenance every 21 days of a month. It is self dependant and easy to follow once trained for it
Bonding : It is the most popular method. The hair replacement system is fixed on the head through bond / glue. It has an ultra hold strength, once fixed remains for around 3 / 4 weeks. After that you need to do regular servicing to maintain a good look with strong hold.

If your method of attachment is clipping then, you may have to visit a service center just when you will need a haircut. It may be in a month’s time or as per your frequency of hair cut. If you have selected the taping method, then you have to change the tape strips every week on your own at home. Service may be required just like when you will need a hair cut of your existing hairs. If the method of attachment is Bonding, then it’s almost mandatory to do a service by a professional hair stylist every 3 weeks.
