"We wanted to provide what so many people seemed to want," says Michael Suba, Continental Hair's president, "but our clients would have none of it. It was an experiment that we just won't go back to. But we tried."
In the nineties it was the Suba family's time to be hit with cancer. Peter and Emma's son Michael was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease in February of 1990. After a year of treatment that included chemotherapy and radiation he decided that he wanted to go into hair replacement. "I never wanted to do it," he says, "until I would be in the cancer centre and I saw what a difference we were making."
As the nineties progressed Continental Hair decided that its real strength was in the women's line. "All the hair replacement places," says Michael, "then and now are primarily geared to men.
"There is some exciting new designs and techniques coming out that for the first time in years have only a woman's hair loss in mind," says Michael Suba.

I was nervous when I first walked into Continental Hair, but owner Michael Suba made me feel completely at ease. Michael fitted me with a postiche - a discreet, easy-to-wear hair system that matched my busy lifestyle.
Our quick and easy-to-follow hair-loss reference chart, provided by Continental Hair's Michael Suba, is a great starting point to finding the perfect hair-replacement solution. Suba also recommends a one-on-one visit to best assess individual needs based on lifestyle and type of hair loss.

It's just like people getting grey hair," says Michael Suba, Continental's president. But that doesn't make it any less devastating for women.
Suba says he has recently seen more female clients in their twenties who are being "proactive" about their hair loss. In response, he launched an ad campaign in September featuring attractive young women with dramatic thinning where their hair is parted.
"The first one (Suba) showed me eight years ago was so awful I cried."
She's still comfortable with her existing hair, but expects she will have to wear a more permanent piece in about five years.

"We see alopecia clients as young as four years old," states Continental Hair president Michael Suba. "About 50 to 60 percent of the women who come to us with thinning hair are in their 20s and 30s.
"We design custom-made wigs and hair systems made of fine-mesh and are hand-knotted. We use processed Asian hair or virgin European hair that has never been dyed," Suba adds.
More recently, Suba introduced a painless low-level laser therapy used in Europe for 15 years.
"This low-level laser will keep the hair you have and turn thin baby hair into thicker healthier hair. With damaged hair, when the follicle is dormant and not killed off, the laser has a way of kicking the follicle back into gear and starting some hair growth," Suba says.
Also, "there is a real stigma about woman and hair loss, so we are really careful to make sure they look good. When they see we can,… they are ecstatic," add Suba.
