Buy Hair Club

My stylist, her manager and myself have been disappointed with the plastic-like hair that have been sold to me the last three months or so. The hair is plastic and cannot even become soft with washing with water. When I went back to the salon on my visit my stylist was surprised to see dreadlocks on my head. It did not feel like a product I should get on my head for about $5000 a year worth! Thank you.

100% Virgin Russian or Ukrainian Hair has a natural matte texture, and fake synthetic hair is shiny. Most websites claiming to sell Russian or European hair are not selling the real thing, but Indian/Remy or other Asian hair. If the hair is sold too cheap, it is a telling sign it is not natural Russian hair.

For ALL my Curly-haired friends out there, this is for us! For all the times we cried over a botched "Christmas tree" haircut, or cursed the humidity, rolled our eyes at Pinterest's flat-ironed results for "naturally curly hair", or fried our hair with a straightener; we've made it this far and it's time we celebrate our natural, crazy curly hair. We are the: Curly Hair Club.

Aderans Co. (TYO: 8170) agreed to buy Hair Club for Men and Women from Regis Corp. (NYSE: RGS) for roughly $163.5 million, wrapping up a nine-month auction process led by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.Tokyo-based Aderans, a provider of hair-replacement services, expects the acquisition to close by the fourth quarter.Minneapolis-based Regis launched a sale of Hair Club in October, citing fewer visits from its customers.Hair Club, known for its 1980s television commercials, was sold to an investment group that included EdgeStone Capital Partners in May 2000 for $45 million. EdgeStone followed that up by acquiring a 60 percent controlling interest in October 2002, but sold Hair Club to Regis, the parent of haircut chains Supercuts and MasterCuts, for $210 million in 2005.As of June 2011, Hair Club consisted of 96 locations.

Hair Club became something of a cultural phenomenon because of television commercials featuring founder Sy Sperling, whose signature line, "I'm not just the president, I'm also a client," became the fodder for humor for decades. It also made Sperling, born in New York's hardscrabble South Bronx neighborhood as the son of a plumber and a homemaker, a wealthy man. Sperling began going bald at the age of 17. According to his recollection a girl he was dating, Sharon Finklestein, ended their brief relationship, the failure of which he attributed to his thinning hair. Sperling soon found a mate and began raising a family in the early 1960s, working as a swimming pool salesman after earning a degree in political science at C.W. Post College. By age 26 he was going bald at an increasing rate. Moreover, his marriage failed, he was divorced, depressed, and back on the dating scene. "I was unhappy with my appearance," he told the New York Times. "And it was destroying my self-confidence. My father had gone bald at a very young age, but I didn't think it would happen to me. All of a sudden there I was, trying to establish myself in sales, trying to date again." Sperling tried the available hair-loss solutions, donning a toupee and trying a hair weave, but he was not satisfied until he came upon a hair-restorer in Manhattan who skillfully weaved in real hair to create a more natural look. Sperling's self confidence returned and he began to take more pride in his appearance, losing about 35 pounds while also giving up a three-pack-a-day cigarette habit and becoming a vegetarian. He also found a new wife, Amy, a hairdresser, and together they decided to start their own business. With just $5,000 in the bank and credit cards, they bought out a Manhattan hairpiece maker in 1968 and launched their own hair-weaving salon.

While Sy focused on the administrative side of the business, called Hair Weave Creations, Amy performed the work and began development on an improved hair-weaving technique. In conjunction with the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, she found a nylon filament mesh. It was extremely difficult to detect and served as the foundation for the new system. The next step was to create a layered haircut that would hide the boundaries between real and woven hair, followed by the incorporation of a polymer to fuse the acquired hair to the netting.

After several years of effort, the Sperlings' hair replacement system was perfected. In 1976 Hair Weave Creations became Hair Club For Men, a name chosen to give the business a sense of exclusivity. There was virtually no competition, and by just relying on word of mouth, the business was able to grow, although momentum stalled by the end of the decade because many Hair Club clients were secretive about what they had done to their hair. Sperling decided to turn to television advertising in the early 1980s, hiring a New York City advertising agency, Berton Miller Associates. A television spot was developed that showed "before" and "after" shots of Hair Club clients. Just in case it failed to work, the agency asked Sperling to film a backup spot, one in which he touted the business himself by noting that was a client as well as the president. Sperling resisted at first. "I wasn't overly articulate, and I've got a little bit of a lisp," he told the Albany Times Union in a 1993 interview. Even when the main commercial performed poorly, Sperling was hesitant to let the ad agency run his spot, and only relented because they had to air something while they worked on a new concept. However, a new approach would not be necessary. After the Sperling commercial first aired in 1982, the company's 800 number received 10,000 calls in the first month, despite airing during the early morning hours when rates could be as inexpensive as $100 for 30 seconds.

When the first television commercials appeared, there were three Hair Club centers in the New York City area. Within three years the company had spread to six other cities and revenues had increased to $10 million, about one-quarter of which was spent on television commercials. Although Hair Club ran other spots featuring actors, the ones with Sperling resulted in three times the sales volume. Because Hair Club employed a direct-response method, sending a brochure to people who called, it was possible to track the effectiveness of the ads. It was somewhat mystifying to Sperling why he was such an effective pitchman, as he told the Albany Times Union, "People sort of see me as the guy next door. I'm a little rough around the edges with some Bronx left in me, a little bit of street." Whatever the reason for their success, the commercials clearly worked. By the end of the decade, there were 20 Hair Club centers. During this period, Sperling also began giving free hair replacements to children who lost their hair because of cancer treatments, initially for Schneider Children's Hospital at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center. As word of the charitable service spread, Sperling expanded the effort, resulting eventually in the establishment of Hair Club for Kids.

In 2000 Les Martin, the owner of a Toronto-based hair care product wholesaler that supplied Hair Club, was interested in making a bid for the company, which he hoped to one day leave for his son to run. Other investors in the group were Gilbert Palter, managing partner of Toronto private equity firm EdgeStone Capital Partners, and Steve Hudson, a "boy wonder" in Canadian business circles. In 1984, at the age of 26, Hudson founded Newcourt Credit as a medical equipment leasing company, but soon turned it into a major lender with about CAD $24 billion under management. At the age of 41, however, he seemed to have lost his touch when, according to Canadian Business, he nearly "botch[ed] a crucial 1999 merger with US-based CIT Group Inc." He was forced out of Newcourt and subsequent ventures did not perform well. The Martinled investment group acquired Hair Club in May 2000, but after Martin's son was killed in an automobile accident, Hudson and EdgeStone acquired a 60 percent controlling interest in October 2002. Hudson was installed as chief executive officer, vowing to turn Hair Club into a major success story.

Hudson took over a company that had 85 centers in the United States, half of them company-owned, generating about $200 million in annual revenues, which represented a 30 percent market share. One of Hudson's first acts was to bring back Sperling as a marketing consultant, although he had some initial misgivings. "When I first heard about the Hair Club opportunity," Hudson told Canadian Business, "I recalled Sy Sperling's infomercials. I thought used-car sales and said, 'No way.' Then I met Sperling. He's a bit of a rogue, but one of the world's great grassroots marketers. He understood the psyche of men who are losing their hair and built a great business model around it."

Hudson also accelerated Hair Club's move into the transplant business, which had enjoyed tremendous growth in the previous decade, from less than $200 million to $1.2 billion in that time. To become involved in this sector, Hair Club forged a partnership with Medical Hair restoration and after conducting surgical trials in four Hair Club centers, the company was ready to offer surgical options at all of its centers in the United States. Hair Club also began to open new centers in Canada. Sy Sperling fully supported the move. "I never wanted to do transplants, because they always had that doll's hair look," Sperling told the New York Times. "But today there's so much new technology, it looks absolutely fantastic." 041b061a72
