Kylie M reviewed Pacific Hair Extensions and Hair Loss Solutions— 5 star June 21 at 2:16pm I have been visiting Pacific Hair since December 2015. When I came in, I was unsure what to expect. I just knew that my hair was getting a lot thinner all the time due to PCOS, and I wanted a solution that I didn't have to worry about every day. I was so sick of backcombing and adding product to my hair, and having it still not look as luscious and full as everyone else around me. They were so so patient with me on that first day, answering all the questions I had and making sure to explore all different possibilities. I was so nervous. I didn't want anyone to know I had added any hair. When you're 24, and you see all your friends just casually throwing their hair up into a messy bun, or walking through rain without fear... So many things that we should just take for granted, but when your hair is thinning, it's something we dread. They could sense the nerves though, and never once did I feel like I was being "sold" anything. The girls were there to try and help get me some of that confidence, too.
Since then, the entire team has maintained that patience and dedication every time I've visited the shop. I honestly feel like I'm just hanging out with friends when I go in, you're so comfortable and they put every possible nerve at ease. We've worked to find a solution and system that I am thrilled with. While I've told friends what I've had done, the friends/ family I haven't seen in a while just keeping telling me they can't believe how much my hair has grown lately! Totally undetectable. If I could give advice to anyone considering any of the many options Pacific Hair offers, is to make sure that you ask lots of questions. The more you know about your options, the happier you'll be with the final result. I'm always worried that I'm annoying them, but honestly, any time I EVER have a question or minor concern, they respond right away and get me back in the store to address it. It took a couple of weeks to get used to the new thickness, but after that there's no turning back!!! Don't wait any longer to get your confidence back!!!

"My wife loves my new hair piece. I was going for the whole Tom Cruise look... her and her friends say I look 20 years younger. Funny how that works...
"I have been a client of Pacific Hair for 8 years now and I don't know what I would do without them. No other hair extension method or option has even come close to what Pacific Hair offers. Not only did the other methods break and ruin my hair, they were WAY too expensive and were noticeably extensions! Not a good look.
I have naturally thin, fine hair and as I get older (I am in my 30's now) it's not going to get any thicker. Because of Pacific Hair, I have a full head of hair that looks and feels like it's my own. I can wash it, curl it, cut it, wear up, wear down, but most of all I can feel relaxed and confident about my hair.
Before Pacific Hair, I hated getting my hair done. I hated the "how fine my hair is" comments and never, ever leaving a hair salon feeling good. The team at Pacific hair are all such wonderful and caring people. They have NEVER made me feel uncomfortable and have NEVER commented on my hair in negative way. They have ONLY helped me (with their own incredible methods) in finding the solutions that work for me.
For the past 8 years I have had the hair that I have longed for and the hair that has helped me to feel confident and beautiful. I LOVE THEM FOR THIS."

"I have no idea what I would do without you guys. You have the highest quality wig and hair pieces I've ever seen, trust me, you're not getting rid of me anytime soon!" N.L (alopecia totalis, *weekly* client of 11 years)
"I've been going to Pacific Hair Extensions and Hair Replacement since June. Sorting through trichotillomania has been a hard process, but the ladies at this studio make me feel so comfortable. They have private rooms, which is rare, so even on days when my confidence isn't as high, I can feel safe.
The wonderful personalities of the staff make everything alright. I've never had a better experience seeking help with my hair loss, bar none.
This process has helped tremendously to make me feel like a full person again. I'm confident, I can go out without a hat on, I can swim, all these things I was too ashamed to do...for pretty much my entire life up until I met the Pacific Hair team!" -Laura Cuthbert (13 year sufferer of trichotillomania)
"I have been going to Pacific Hair Extensions for over 7 years now and there is definitely a reason! Having tried various other kinds of hair and extension methods, I found the quality of hair at Pacific is unmatched and the method safe for my natural hair. I've always had great experiences at my appointments - the staff are awesome and know their stuff! I recommend them to friends all the time or anyone who asks about my extensions. I recommend going in for a consult if you are interested in extensions and have any questions - they have the answers!"
"I absolutely LOVED my experience at Pacific Hair. They greeted me with green tea, and ran me through the entire extension process so that I fully understood what I would be getting. The hair matched my natural hair perfectly. It was brown, with low lights and highlights that looked identical to my natural colour. Kristina (the extension tech) trimmed the hair around my face to look natural and blend in with my layers. I was so happy with the way my hair turned out and have been getting compliments from everyone!! I will keep going to Pacific Hair because I truly have never had such a great job done on my extensions!!"
"Hands down the best hair out there!! My first clip ins lasted for over 4 years and looked brand new until over a month ago. I looked around at a few other choices but nothing compares!! I will never go anywhere else for my extensions, fantastic quality, professional services, reasonable prices. You definitely get what you pay for!!! FANTASTIC!"
-Tina Bowers, Bowers Medical (fine hair) (client of five years)
"Being a cancer survivor, my hair never came back the same again. After I had tried everything before I went to Pacific Hair Extensions and Hair Loss Solutions for my consultation. I had never worn hair extensions ever. I have been a Pacific customer for over 6 years now and even though I no longer live in Canada I don't shop for hair anywhere else. Not only the high quality of hair that I love so much, but the service. Pacific is like a second home to me. We are a family and I wouldn't change it for the world. It doesn't matter where I am on the globe, Pacific and all staff is always there for me, even in crisis situations. THANK YOU PACIFIC TEAM!Hope to see you this fall!" -Bobbie-Jo Brasfield Kanadikan Entertainment/13 West (hair loss from chemotherapy, client of six years)
This is the best that I can do for a testimonial, because I'm too shy to do a before & after photo, sorry guys! I first came to Pacific at the start of the year, which has been a long time coming. I've been in correspondence with a consultant for about 4 months regarding a large patch of hair loss I have in my crown (I'm only 28). I looked at surgery and hair grafts, but decided to avoid that because of a) cost b)potential pain, didn't want to have to take a series of pain killers afterward.
I came in for a free consultation and they showed me how human hair pieces are put on, how they cut and style them too. I came in for the appointment the next Saturday, and they had a piece that matched my hair color (black with dark brown highlights) and was a bit wavy ready to put in. They cut and style it based on a picture that I had brought in and I was all done in an hour and half. Peoples reactions: The people I hadn't told ahead of time that I was getting one didn't even notice I had gotten a hair piece, I was actually really surprised. Most people just said "Did you get your hair coloured?" It was great, because I was able to cover what I've been super insecure about since I was 23 without anyone making a big deal about (which is great because I'm a guy) and when people touch it they pretty much can't even feel it. I can sleep in it, shower, go the gym, brush it, put gel in it and basically do whatever I want and just have it all maintained/redone every 2 months. If you want something that people don't notice or will make a big deal out of that looks really natural, I would really suggest Pacific Hair. Thanks again!
"My name is Madison Opp and I live in Vancouver BC. I have been going to Pacific Extensions for almost 5 years, and I can honestly say I have no plans on switching over to any other place. I have never felt more confident in my hair than I do now. Being mixed (Caucasian/African American) I always wanted the long flowing hair, but like most women like me that I know, it's almost impossible. I tried the whole clip-in hair extensions trend, and it really just wasn't for me. I wanted to have the long flowing hair ALL the time, not just on a Saturday night or for a family vacation. You could ask anyone I know, friends/family, and they'll all tell you the same thing,that as I was growing up the one thing I always wanted was the perfect long hair something similar as to what Beyonce had, and I never really thought it would be possible till now. I am always getting compliments on how "nice my hair is", and "It's getting so long". When I do tell certain people that I have extensions the reaction I get is nothing but complete shock! Telling people my experience with Pacific always strikes up a lot of interest and curiosity, and I am always nothing but willing to tell them all about it. From questions like if it hurts? Or what do you do when its itchy? To even letting them feel the tracks to get an idea of what it's like....I know it may sound crazy, but people are curious! The team at Pacific know their stuff, and are always there to answer any questions and make you feel comfortable no matter what. They will have me as a life long customer, especially with the quality of the hair, the service and the feedback that I get!"
-Madison Opp (Fine hair, client of 6 years)
"I absolutely love being able to wear Pacific Hair Extensions! The extensions feel so natural and soft, just like my own hair. And they are exactly colour matched to my blonde highlights. Not only do I wear the extensions both wavy and straight to add volume and thickness on days I shoot, but there is also a ponytail I love to wear as well. It makes getting ready for shoots, red carpets or events so easy and quick, while still looking camera ready. I definitely recommend trying Pacific Hair Extensions if you are looking for a little more glam in your life."
I had researched for a good three weeks before stumbling upon Pacific's website and I decided to go to their store in person and check things out for myself so I made an a consultation appointment. The consultation was great. They answered all my questions and explained to me the different types of hair, prices, procedures, everything that I needed to know. I decided that day that I would get my extensions done there so I made an appointment.
On the day of the appointment the staff really cater to your every need from offering drinks to food. I also noticed they all have a need to get to know their clients for who they are and really work on that relationship.
It took three hours to complete, they washed, sewed, attached, and cut my new extensions into a style that I loved and even showed me how to curl my hair with a flat iron to even giving me some product samples to try at home and reminded me that I had a free two week check up to see how the extensions were doing.
I've been to many salons but this one is clean, modern, and the staff are all amazing women.”
~Ashley Ainsworth (fine hair, client of 2 years)
"I love the thickness and have been receiving compliments non-stop. At first I was worried that the extensions wouldn't be able stand the stress of being teased and constantly styled during a fast paced pageant, but it really has proven to be the best quality of hair extensions I have ever seen and used. Definitely winning hair."
"RE: My last appointment. First I have to say that I LOVE my hair! You guys did an amazing job on my extensions and I'm very happy. Tons of compliments at work today too! Can I schedule another appointment for an upcoming date?"C, (client of 4 years)
"My hair has always been thinner than I would have liked it to be. I always wished i had long gorgeous, full, big bodied hair but unfortunately I inherited my family's thin stringy and straight hair. Then suddenly when i was 17 a few round bald patches appeared on my scalp. I was diagnosed with having Alopecia Areata. AA is an auto-immune disorder that cause the immune system to attack itself. There is currently no cure available. I tried several different treatments including creams, very painful cortisone injections directly into the scalp, and eventually a very strong and dangerous steroid called Prednizone which has a lot of long term side effects and causes extreme weight gain in the face. Not an easy thing to have to go through at any age let only being a 17 year old girl in her grad year of high school. I couldn't face my friends or even bare to look in the mirror and my self esteem was completely destroyed. I lost about 65% of my hair. I am 32 years old now and over the years I have learned to accept this condition with a grain of salt but have always been hoping and searching for a solution and ways to hide it that were comfortable and that didn't look unnatural or fake. Good quality hair is very hard to find, people will try and sell you anything. It can be quite expensive and it's really hard to find a company that is capable of doing the installments in a way that is both natural looking and comfortable to wear. It can be embarrassing going to regular salons where other people end up staring at you and the staff doesn't have the proper experience needed to deal with this type of condition. I had pretty much gave up any hope of finding any solutions that would fit all of this criteria.
That is...until I heard about a company in Vancouver called Pacific Hair. I heard about them about a 2 years ago. This place is just simply amazing! Not only are they extremely knowledgeable when it comes to different types and all conditions of hair loss, but they are also very sensitive, empathetic, friendly and discreet. They have gone way above and beyond to work with my specific wants and needs and I would recommend them to absolutely anybody who for whatever reason would like to have a different head of hair than the one that they have now. PACIFIC is in a word-incredible!!! They have the complete resources and ability to help anybody in absolutely any situation. They really go the extra mile to make sure that you are completely 100% satisfied with the outcome. I have spent hundreds of dollars on hair in the past and ended up completely wasting my money and just doing more damage to my actual hair in the long run because of bad quality hair and bad quality installments. Pacific 100% guarantees not only the quality of the hair but also offers a 2 week free follow up to make sure that you are completely happy with the work they've done for you. I am so very grateful to have found out about Pacific and I can honestly say that I now finally have the hair that i have always wanted and I also have a very special and fantastic team of people who are there to help keep me beautiful. My self esteem is so much better today because of Pacific. My husband and friends and family are so impressed with not only the way I look but how happy I am now. My mom says that she has her happy little girl back and I really do finally feel like myself again and an even better version at that! I want absolutely everybody to know about Pacific because it can be so depressing to have to live with something that you don't like about yourself, it effects every aspect in your life and it is no way to live. This is why I am posting this on the internet, so that the world can see that there are real and wonderful options available for anyone and everyone who wants or needs different hair than what they are currently stuck with. Pacific works with both male and female clients, and there is no situation or condition that they haven't already worked with and can find ways to solve and make you feel and look beautiful again. Even if I didn't have alopecia, I would still continue to go to Pacific because I have never, ever been as happy with my hair as i am now-even before I was diagnosed with this condition! Pacific has been able to finally give me the hair and the confidence that I have always wanted and I could not ask for anything more. BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU TO PACIFIC!! They have given me my life back :)"
--Sarah Jane Ritchie (alopecia areata, client of 2 years)
I was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple months ago and due to the nature of my growth, I unfortunately had to opt for chemotherapy. Getting a wig wasn't the first thing on my mind, but eventually once I started to look a little further into my future I realized I was going to lose some if not all my hair. I hit google and started to look around the city for places that offered wigs, and something that would look natural as well. They offer free consultations for all kinds of hair loss, so I was able to go in on a Saturday with my husband and see what they had to offer.
I was honestly, very scared -- this is not something in a million years I would've thought I would have to do, hunt around town for a wig. I went in just prior to my treatment for my consultation and was a bit unsure at first as it seemed it was more of a salon that focused on hair extensions as opposed to wigs for older women. During the consultation, my consultant went over the differences between synthetic wigs, human hair wigs, custom human hair wigs and which would be best suited for me and my lifestyle. They have many synthetic wigs that are ready to go, and something that is human hair can be ordered as quickly as the following day. The consultant suggested I chose a style that was exactly what I had already, perhaps a little longer. Her reasoning behind this was comfort. If I have something that is what I'm used to already seeing, the transition would be less of a blow. She said the most important thing is to make sure that we can get a hair system that no one would be able to tell is a hair system. The human hair wigs have a hand tied portion so that it looks like it's actually growing out of your head. She was friendly, realistic and straight to the point, at my age that's all I'm looking for.
Since I had not done my treatment yet, we chose a style (I opted to go for human hair, because I'd still like to heat style it), worked out pricing and I took my package information with me until I was ready. A few weeks later when I had my energy up and was sporting a bald look I came back in to order the style we had already chosen (they kept all my information on file). I had an appointment booked as soon as the following Tuesday and was very very nervous. When I first laid eyes on my wig, I just couldn't imagine it on my head. They placed it on and the fit was snug but not too tight, straightened it out and started on the cut. They were able to match the exact cut that I had before, but suggested I keep it a bit longer. They worked off of a picture I had brought in and talked me through the whole appointment (they could probably tell I was a bit nervous). The appointment took about an hour and a half and they went over styling information and provided me sulphate free shampoo and conditioner samples. They also offer receipts to take to your insurance company for tax purposes. We are part of a women's support group for those going through chemotherapy and there are about five of us now who have wigs from Pacific. Highly recommend!

“Ok… what have you done to me??? I’m now and addict to hair. I will never ever live without these beautiful extensions. I’m amazed at how great they look and the compliments I receive. The texture and colour are perfect… no one knows the difference. People have told me I look 10 years younger… not sure if it’s the hair or the confidence that it’s given me. All in all… unbelievable. Your establishment and professionalism transcends the norm. Thanks so much and see you in a couple months! “
-Vesna M (fine hair)
“From the moment I walked into Pacific Hair I was treated like a special guest. Pacific has an amazing team of friendly and knowledgeable women who take the time to listen to their client’s wants and make them happen! The salon also carries an array of top-quality beauty and hair products. Every experience I’ve had at Pacific has been wonderful. The stylists all make me feel comfortable and my hair looks gorgeous. I am grateful for the support from Pacific on my 2012 Miss World Canada journey and my TV Hosting career. As someone who is in the public eye, I want my hair to look its best on and off camera and Pacific has helped me in achieving this. Styling my hair has never been easier! I am proud to represent Pacific, and would recommend them to anyone.
