Frequently Asked Questions about MACO Hair Systems

Do you have questions about the Hair Systems method? Here you will find the answers to most of the questions people have about MACO Hair Systems. Take some time and learn everything you need to know about Hair Systems.

What are Hair Systems?

These are innovative products, which are based on a very thin membrane (0.01, 0.02 or 0.03 millimeters). 100% natural bristles are placed on this base.

MACO products are applied ONLY to the spot where thinning is observed and not to the entire head.

The membrane is so thin and transparent, which creates the impression of a very natural effect.

Who is suitable for MACO Hair Systems?

Suitable are men of any age who notice severe thinning in the areas of the top of their head. These products are not indicated for men suffering from chronic diseases, which have resulted in total loss of scalp hair.

How many Hair Systems does MACO already have?

MACO exclusively has ONLY two types of Hair Systems.

The MACO INSTANT and MACO CUSTOM Hair Systems

MACO does not sell Wigs, Wigs or Hair Extensions.

Hair qualities

Human hair has a specific life cycle. By the term life cycle we mean the period of time from the creation of a hair until the day that hair will fall from the scalp.

At MACO we choose to make our Hair Systems with natural hair, which is harvested right after it is created and not from hair that has already fallen from the scalp.

This is a very important detail, which leads to an even more natural result in our Systems.

Why do MACO Systems look so natural?

At MACO in order to create a highly natural aesthetic effect on the appearance of our customers, we STRICTLY select a very specific type of high quality film, which we create exclusively. This material forms the basis of our Systems.

When this base is ready, then the special production staff starts to place the hairs in the System. These bristles are not applied to the base by some mass-produced machine but are placed on it, one by one, by hand. So at this stage, the hair is simply passed from one side of the base to the other and wedged with a special technique without tying a knot, as in wigs or wigs.

In this way, if you apply a MACO Hair System, you will see that the impression is given that the hair comes from our head and not from a foreign body.

What Density Are MACO Systems?

At MACO we tell all our new clients one thing: "If the Hair System doesn't look very natural, you won't leave our place" and we don't say this because we just want to reassure them but because it's part of our business culture .

Imagine a 50-year-old man whose scalp on the sides has a density of 60%, applying a System with a density of 140%, or a young child with thick hair on the sides, applying a MACO System with a density of 60%. What will be the result? I believe you can give the answer yourself.

All we will say is that at MACO we help you choose the right density in your System according to your real needs and not the needs you think you have.

Density is one of the most basic factors for a natural result in the System and is very carefully considered by our experts.

How We Choose the System Color

The color of the MACO System is also an important factor for the success of the perfect result. The process is not simple, as the shade is different even depending on the season .

For example, a fairly dark man during the summer may notice a change in the shade of his hair, which is due to systematic exposure to the sun. For this reason, if we apply Hair Systems to this man, we should carefully check not only the color , but also the properties of his hair .

At MACO we will carefully examine your hair color and take into account all the necessary factors, so that there are no two-tones in the hair. We have a range of more than 50 colors and many shades of these colors that will "force" your System to make a perfect " fit " in your new image.

How immediately you can implement a MACO System

As we have already mentioned. MACO has 2 different Hair Systems, INSTANT and CUSTOM.

INSTANT Systems can be implemented relatively immediately. The time period from the day of purchase to the day of application varies between 5 and 15 days. In order to give you an accurate answer for the application time, we will have to measure the individual concerned and check our stocks accordingly. If there is stock available that matches your hair properties, then the application can be done immediately, i.e. in 5-7 days. In any other case, we will have to order the Systems, which will be delivered in 10 to 15 days. 

CUSTOM Systems are ONLY available upon order, as they are produced exclusively for each customer and are received after 7-8 weeks .

How long does the first application take?

A big advantage of MACO Hair Systems is that you can see your image change and get a perfect look again in just a few hours. But how long does the process of implementing the Systems really take? Once your System is available to MACO, the application process begins.

At this stage the following steps are followed:

  • Choosing the right haircut with the MACO experts (15 minutes)
  • Washing hair (5 minutes)
  • Shave and shave the area where the System will be applied (10 minutes)
  • Bathing (5 minutes)
  • Installation of the first System (20 minutes)
  • Cutting and Styling the first System (30 minutes)
  • Remove the first System (5 minutes)
  • Washing, cleaning and moisturizing the head (15 minutes)
  • Installation of the second System (20 minutes)
  • Cutting and Styling the second System (20 minutes)
  • Update and Tips for everyday life with MACO Systems (15 minutes)

Total duration: 160 minutes

Are MACO Hair Systems safe for my health?

The answer is NO. Both the MACO Hair Systems and the materials used for their application and maintenance are absolutely harmless.

  • The skin breathes
  • Hair that has been shaved continues to grow normally
  • There is no risk of irritation or infection
  • There is no itching
  • The head does not get hotter than normal

The products are anti-allergenic and certified. Nevertheless, as for us the health of our customers comes first. ALWAYS before the first application, an allergy test is done on MACO products .

How often should I do Maintenance?

Maintenance of MACO Systems should be done on average every 20 days. In order to accurately define the Maintenance time per customer we should study various factors.

Factors affecting Maintenance times:

  • The oiliness of the skin
  • Everyday life
  • The season
  • Hair Transplants before applying Systems
  • Physical exercise and activity

Although the times vary from customer to customer, at MACO we will achieve the best time for you, which will make the Maintenance a pleasant process and the time between the next one, will always be enough to feel good about the new your hair.

If you don't want to do the Maintenance yourself, at home, but at MACO, consider it like visiting your hairdresser about once a month to refresh your look, like everyone who has hair does.

Can I do the Maintenance myself?

The answer is: Of course you can! Each of our customers should be familiar with the Hair Systems Maintenance process. Thus, things become simpler and the Systems are integrated in the best way into your life.

How will I learn to do it myself?

After we finish the first application of the Hair Systems, we give our clients an educational material, which shows step by step the whole Maintenance process. Also, our customers have the option to purchase the products they will need for Maintenance directly from us.

What do we mean by "Replacing" Hair Systems?

When we say that MACO Hair Systems need replacing, we mean that they should be replaced with new Systems, exactly the same as before. Replacement takes place as soon as the Systems are deemed by MACO experts to be unfit for use and varies by customer.

When is a System due for replacement?

MACO Hair Systems should be replaced with new ones after:

  • Reduction of the density of Systems below 50 % of the original density
  • Irreversible wear of the System base (tearing)
  • Changing the color of the hair (In this case, if the customer wishes, we can add the hair and extend the time until the replacement)

How to Replace MACO Systems?

The system replacement is similar but not the same as the first application. This mainly serves those outside Athens and Thessaloniki.

After the first application has been made and we have made the corresponding measurements, we can prepare the new systems and send them to our customer, by post, if he is not able to visit us.

MACO experts will make sure to make the new set of Systems exactly like the first time. If you still wish, you can make the replacement at one of the MACO Institutes in Athens and Thessaloniki.

In this case we can also make changes to the haircut and styling of your new Systems.
