There is no cure for thinning hair; however, that doesn’t mean that there is no solution. About 40% of aging women will notice thinning hair and Hair Prosthesis Centre in Barrie, ON offers the solutions. We don’t just offer full wigs, as you may not need one to cover your entire head. Instead, we have many partial hair systems that cover the specific sections where you’re experiencing thinning hair (whether it’s the top, crown or front of your head).

If the top of your hair is thinning, you have the option of integrating a partial hair system to your natural hair to add height, volume and thickness.

Hair systems can be attached for daily wear, or bonded for weekly wear, and is done in a private and comfortable setting by our trained hair loss specialists.

Postiche”, derived from French and Italian roots, is another term for partial hair pieces. We carry a variety of different postiche hair systems at the Hair Prosthesis Centre, and are happy to teach you how to properly blend them into your existing hair. The types of partial hairpieces available include stylish bangs for frontal coverage, and small or large top pieces for varying degrees of coverage.




To add fullness to an uneven hairline, clip-in bangs or fringes are the perfect solution for a light, comfortable natural look. For more coverage that extends beyond the bang area, a top partial piece is recommended.




If you have thin hair at the top of your head, integrating a lightweight and comfortable small base top piece will add volume and disguise the thinning hair. For partial coverage that goes beyond the top part of your head, a full top piece is suggested.




Large base full coverage pieces cover the entire top of your head, providing maximum coverage and thickness. Full top coverage partial hair systems create a natural look. For coverage beyond the top of your head, a full wig or hair system is advised.


If you are looking for the ease and simplicity of a full piece, whether this is due to hair loss, as a fashion piece or convenience, Hair Prosthesis Centre’s knowledgeable, professionally trained staff will take the confusion away of which wig will suit you best.

Wearing a full hair system has many advantages over a partial piece:

  • No blending issues
  • No color match issues
  • Conveniently covers most of the hair
  • No haircuts
  • No dyeing required unless you wish to change your hair systems color.
  • Simplicity

Dealing with hair loss or scalp irritation are emotional events, and can lead to social concerns and confidence issues. The best time to take action is immediately. As soon as you start to notice a change in your hair or scalp you should seek out a Trichologist or Dermatologist.

Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp and overlaps both the medical and cosmetic areas that are not normally covered by either a doctor or hairstylist. A Trichologist can help you address many concerns about your hair and scalp treatment.
