We’ll hazard a guess that you’re considering investing in a human hair wig or topper and researching which might be the best one for you. If so, welcome. Your research has led you to the Daniel Alain website, and we are delighted you’re here! We invite you to have a quick look around. Perhaps you’ll peruse our wig and topper collections, check out our prices, and maybe you’ll even spot a link asking you to book a consultation.


Hold up! 




You’re not ready for that! 


You just wanted to browse the products, maybe learn a thing or two about different kinds of wigs or toppers, or read about other women’s hair loss experiences.


A consultation is too soon! It’s a step too far! You’re not ready to talk to someone about wearing a wig, and you’re definitely not ready to talk to a stranger about your hair loss!


Or are you?


Whether you find yourself ready to talk about your hair loss now or at some point in the future, you should know that having a consultation is the very best way to make sure you find the perfect wig for you.


We know hair loss can be hard to talk about. And while it might seem appealing to anonymously pick out and pay for a piece online without speaking to another person about something that makes you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, the truth is, you’re unlikely to find the right wig or topper for you this way.


At Daniel Alain, our consultants are a team of experienced, empathetic, and compassionate women who are professionals in their field. They’ve helped thousands of women find the perfect wig and they are invested in your total satisfaction. They listen to hair loss stories like yours every day and are a fountain of knowledge when it comes to base size, hair type, lace tops, skin tops, hair color, and length. And if you really need a listening ear? They’re pretty great at that, too.


We offer free consultations either virtually or in person in our showroom in Newport Beach, California. Our consultations are private and you are under no obligation to make a purchase. A consultation is simply the perfect opportunity to share your experience with hair loss, and your hopes and expectations of a human hair wig or topper. If you choose to move forward, we can help guide you through the process of finding the right piece to suit all your needs. 


If and when you feel ready to schedule a consultation, we want you to feel prepared. We know that stepping into the unknown can be daunting and we want to make it as easy as possible every step of the way. In this article, we will outline some important tips to get the most out of your Daniel Alain consultation so that you can take full advantage of the consultation experience and feel more confident as you start moving forward.





Tip #1: Familiarize yourself with the Daniel Alain website




On our website, you’ll find information about all of our wig and topper collections. We feature videos and photos that give you an idea of what the hair looks like and we provide an easy-to-read breakdown of the features of each collection. You’ll find out all you need to know about hair types, color options, and everything about payment and financing


You can find out exactly how much each collection costs and how hair length and color will affect pricing. If you’re new to the world of wigs and aren’t familiar with some of the terminology, we recommend jotting them down so we can go over it during your consultation. 



Tip #2: Do your homework




Once you’ve chosen your consultant and booked your appointment time, we will send you an email confirmation as well as a couple of short videos. We ask that you watch these videos prior to your consultation as they contain important information about your appointment.  



Tip #3. Write down any questions


We know it can be nerve-wracking to be put on the spot, and later regret not having asked something you’d like to know the answer to. Our consultants are always available to answer any questions you may have before, during, and after your consultation, but if you think of anything before you get started on the consultation, writing it down will help you feel confident you’re getting all the information you need. Here are some of our top 10 questions to ask during a wig consultation.



Tip #4. Insurance


A lot of customers ask us about insurance and if wigs are covered. While we don’t work directly with insurance companies, you can check with your provider beforehand to see if they offer reimbursement. We can add any necessary information to your receipt to satisfy your policy’s requirements.



Tip #5. Trust the process


Over the years, we have perfected our consultation process and we’ve helped thousands of women find the best wig or topper for them. We know what we’re doing and we have your best interests in mind with everything we do. If  you can't come to the showroom, we highly recommend having a video consultation either through Zoom, or Facetime. That way we can see you on camera and have a better understanding of your particular needs. If you feel more comfortable talking over the phone, we can do that too. We are happy to work within your comfort zone.




We also recommend ordering a Fit Kit at your consultation. Fit Kits can only be ordered during a consultation because they are personalized to you. A Fit Kit allows you to try on cap sizes and wear them for an extended period of time, see the hair samples, and check out colors and lengths. It’s really important to have a follow-up consultation so we can check how the caps fit and if they’re sitting properly on your head. Customers who go through this process have MUCH more success in finding the perfect wig, than customers who order blindly without trying out caps and examining the hair.



Tip #6. Get ready for your consultation



Our final tip is to get ready for your consultation. Gather the things you might need. We recommend having a notepad and pen so you can jot down any notes as we talk. We also recommend having a soft tape measure handy as we’ll use it to gather accurate measurements. 


If you have a supportive family member or friend whose opinion you trust, they are welcome to attend the consultation with you, or virtually. While the ultimate decision is yours, having an outside, objective opinion could help you arrive at the best decision for you.



Are you ready to book your Daniel Alain consultation?


You may have initially been nervous at the thought of having a one-to-one consultation to help you find the right wig or topper for you. Sharing your hair loss experience is not something that’s easy to talk about, especially if you’re devoting a lot of time and energy to hiding it. And we know it takes guts to talk about it anyway.


Now you’ve read our 6 top tips for getting the most out of your consultation, you may be asking yourself if you’re ready to book an appointment after all. Whatever decision you make, purchasing a wig or topper can feel like a huge step, and we want you to know that you’re not alone. We can guide you through the process when you’re ready.
