What is a Stock Unit / Hair piece?
A stock unit is a predesigned wig or hair piece which comes in a variety of styles, colours and hair lengths. They can be purchased on the day in both Human and Synthetic Hair.
Stock Units are a more affordable way to wear hair replacement and, in most cases, we are able to accommodate your hair replacement needs on the day.
At Pink, we will always offer you a stock unit before a custom-made piece is needed. The only reasons why you would choose a custom-made hair replacement system as opposed to a stock unit would be:
- You require more than one colour within the hair.
- You require grey percentages in different areas.
- The cap size is bigger than the normal size of 9x7 inches for a top piece or a full head if a different size of cap is needed.
- If you have Alopecia, the attachment is more specialised, so you do not put pressure on your remaining hair.
- If you have Trichotillomania the area that is being pulled is better if it is covered, normally only on one side of the head or a particular area which a custom-made piece will cover.
