Hair Club (formerly Hair Club for Men, also Hair Club for Men and Women) is an American hair restoration and hair replacement company with locations in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The company was founded in 1976 by Sy Sperling. In 2005, Hair Club was purchased by the public Minneapolis company Regis. In 2012, Regis sold Hair Club to the Japanese hair restoration company Aderans.
The company started with just male clientele, but has long-since added services for women to address female hair loss and thinning brought on by chemotherapy, menopause, postpartum stress, trichotillomania, hormonal imbalances, and natural aging. The company also provides free hair restoration services to children with medical conditions that cause hair loss.
Hair Club provides its own non-surgical treatment for hair loss, trademarked as Bio-Matrix, in addition to scalp cleansers and conditioners, and FDA approved hair regrowth agents. It also provides surgical hair replacement. Hair Club recently admitted that they do not provide surgical hair replacement directly but rather refer such clients to a company called Bosley. Hair Club only offers wigs that are glued to the scalp via an adhesive and have to be serviced every 3-6 weeks.
