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.[1] For decades, Hair Club has advertised on television, airing several different commercials and infomercials.[2]

In 2004, Hair Club was purchased by the public Minneapolis company Regis.[3] In 2012, Regis sold Hair Club to the Japanese hair restoration company Aderans.[4]

Hair Club provides various hair restoration options including surgical hair replacement and non-surgical hair replacement trademarked as the Bio-Matrix Strand-by-Strand® hair replacement process. Hair Club also offers hair loss therapy and prevention for at-home use, including the Extreme LaserComb and EXT® Extreme Hair Therapy.[5]

The company originally offered services to male clientele only, 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.[6] The company also provides free hair restoration services to children with medical conditions that cause hair loss.[7]
