Covering Up Your Hair Loss
When you consider the various things that can happen to us, not
many cosmetic problems can be as sudden or as traumatic as hair loss.
Our hair is by its very nature a big part of our looks and also

Hair extensions and hair bonding are in essence two ways to
increase the hair on your head by adding it to your existing hair. Extensions are really only suitable for
