Conventional cutting and styling especially for thinning hair.
Specialist shampoos and conditioners and treatments. For thinning hair.
Microdermabrasion - a rejuvenation procedure which removes of the outermost layer of dead skin cells and stimulates hair growth.
KeraFibres - a natural organic keratin, the same protein that hair is made of. This can be fixed to thinning hair to make it fuller, covering small areas of the scalp.
Toppers - stock or custom made, these hairpieces attach to your own hair with clips or micro-rings, to add volume and length. They are low maintenance, good for covering areas of thinning hair, and easy to remove and replace.

They are ideal for areas of total hair loss due to male pattern baldness, alopecia, burns, scarring, chemotherapy, psoriasis and other conditions.

I've gained a lot of experience over the years, developed many skills in all aspects of hairdressing. I've worked with some high profile clients, including footballers and some celebs. I loved making my clients feel and look great.
As soon as I started in hair replacement I knew this was what I wanted to do. I get great satisfaction from helping people. Being sensitive , caring, friendly and giving excellent customer service are for most. qualities that are required when helping some one through there tough journey. I enjoyed seeing the impact that hair replacement had on people’s lives, making them feel better and more confident about themselves. I haven’t looked back and I am proud that Ripley Layne has built a reputation as a trusted, caring and professional destination for hair replacement for both men and women.
Taking the first step towards hair replacement can be difficult, especially picking up the telephone to speak to someone about your hair loss problem for the first time. I do everything possible to make you feel totally relaxed and comfortable. I will provide you with information and advice so you can leave your consultation with a little more knowledge on the options that are available to you and possible next steps. There is definitely no hard sell!
I offer a private and confidential consultation that can take up to 60 minutes, free of charge.
• Cleanse hair up two times a week.
• Use either a Moisturising shampoo or sulphate free shampoo.
• Condition the hair (mid lengths and ends) conditioner can weaken the knots if left near the base of the system.
• Do not massage, use stroking movements and rinse well (best standing in the shower rather than tipping head forward, this could loosen the system)
• Pat dry (do not rub the hair)
• When brushing the hair use a tangle teaser and vent brush (never brush from the root) start at the mid lengths and ends.
• Use a leave in conditioner.
• Style using a low heat setting on the hair dryer.
• Use none alcoholic styling products.
• A silk pillow case is recommended this helps to stop friction. Also good for the skin!!
“ I don’t believe in miracles, but if I did I would swear that Tracey Garry at Ripley Layne Hair Loss Solutions could perform them!
I should explain, I suppose. My name is Denise and I was born a man, a long time ago! Like a lot of Trans girls, I’ve left it very late to transition and part of the reason why was that was my hair had receded a little. Well, more than a little, it had receded all the way to the back of my head and I looked like a monk if I tried to grow my hair. I had tried wigs but was never very comfortable in them and always felt vulnerable to losing the wig for a number of reasons and let’s face it, nobody wants to see a bald man in a dress.
And then I met Tracey! She instantly put me at ease, explained the process of measuring and fixing, cutting in and styling at our first meeting. Suffice to say I was back at the first opportunity and was quickly measured and an order placed. A few weeks later, I was able to begin my social transition sporting a very stylish Pixie Cut.
Tracey continued to support me through my transition and I’m now happy to say that I’ve lived full-time in my chosen gender since July 2016. The miracle? Having the confidence to complete my transition through having nice, feminine hair.
The Miracle Worker? That’s easy – Tracey Garry at Ripley Layne. Thank you Tracey, I owe my new found happiness to you.”
“I had experienced hair loss from the age of 17 years of age. I used to have a full head of hair. Hair loss did not run in my family. I was using hair products such as gel and moose as a teenager. My hair loss started from my scalp and then I started getting a receding hairline. My friends at College would pick up on this and make fun jokes along with a few teachers. I had lost all of my confidence along with my personality. I used to always hide my scalp by wearing a baseball cap. I would also use Mane Hair spray for a short time but it was only a temporary measure and I found that I would have to shower everyday as my scalp was itchy and covered in black spray the following morning. I didn’t feel like attending lectures as it was becoming daunting going to university. I even dropped out of university as it was getting too much for me. I had become withdrawn from all social activities. I felt as though I was able to lead a normal life.
After visiting Ripley Layne Hair solutions in 2004 and having my first system fitted, I was a new person, both inside and outside. My new uni peers were none the wiser. Since then, I have an abundance of confidence in myself and I have excelled in my studies and in my career. Only my family are aware that I wear a system. My friends and colleagues are unaware. I have changed my hair style numerous times as I have since been through many systems throughout the years. The quality of the systems have just got better and better. I have currently ordered my new system and am waiting eagerly for it as I have a new hair style in mind.
I would strongly advise anyone who is suffering from hair loss to approach Ripley Layne Hair solutions for a consultation. The prices for a refusion/refresh are cheaper than a lot of other neighbouring places such as Advanced Hair Studio and Farrell Hair Studio to name a few, considering that you get more chair time and more of a personal consultation. (I have been a client of Advanced Hair Studio for a short time so I know first-hand). You do not feel rushed. The quality of my particular systems that I have had (laced front) have been met with people thinking that it is my natural hair.
I find Ms Garry to be quite flexible too in terms of her being able to see me at a moment’s notice or at weekends in case of any emergencies. I feel relaxed as I know I can count on Ripley Layne and do not feel pressured in any way to purchase additional hair systems. (I purchase a new hair system every 16-18 months as these particular systems are more natural looking). Each refusion/refresh consultation I have had every month for the past 11 years have involved having a pleasant conversation whilst my hair system is maintained and serviced. I find Ms Garry to be incredibly meticulous and a perfectionist. She is a genuinely caring person who wishes to help people like myself in achieving their goals in life whilst maintaining their dignity and confidence. I would strongly recommend anyone to have a consultation with them and only then make your opinion once you have experienced it first-hand.”
“I’ve had problems with my hair since it began to thin out quite a bit when I was a teenager. The process slowly continued and I first came across Tracey a couple of years ago when my hair had thinned out so much, I felt very self-conscious and was looking for help.
Tracey was lovely; very professional but very approachable and down to earth and immediately put me at ease. She is understanding; able to empathise and clearly has a lot of experience dealing with hair loss problems.
I was still at the enquiry stage at that time and Tracey did not try to pressure me at all. In fact, she gave me some sound advice about different places to try and important questions to ask to help me make my decision.
I did a lot of research, visited other salons and weighed everything up.
In the end I went back to Tracey and she has been looking after my hair for the last 2 years. I am so pleased with the results & have much more confidence. I’ve never had as many compliments about my hair before and I know I can just relax now and just get on with life.
Tracey is so welcoming whenever I go and so accommodating; she really cares about her clients.
She’s made me feel a million dollars. I would (and have) gladly recommend her to anyone in the same situation. ”
“Fantastic service from a wonderful caring lady, listens to my needs and gives good advice too. Competitive prices, it's always a pleasure to see u Tracy and my hair always looks good. Thank you xxx”
“Ripley Layne Hair Salon is totally amazing.
Tracey is superb and provides a professional service.
I have visited her salon for over a year now and the service is consistently high quality. My hair looks awesome and my confidence has increased. It’s been a while since I felt and looked this good! Such a personal experience, from a very lovely and friendly lady.
Tracey goes above and beyond to ensure she exceeds all your expectations. Tracey treats you as a friend not a client and the after-care is second to none. I cannot recommend Ripley Layne highly enough. Deserves far more than 5 stars.
Thank you Tracey!”

“I am a man in his mid-forties with hair that has been thinning since my teens. For many years I just accepted hair loss as a fact of life, but recently started to investigate Hair Replacement. I found Ripley Layne on an internet search for a local stylist, gave Tracey a call and right away felt many anxieties just melt away. I had a free consultation with her, where the various options and strategies were shown and explained to me in a comfortable, confidential setting. The costs, maintenance requirements, and realities of living with hair replacement were candidly discussed without obligation. I decided that I was going to say 'yes'.
I had a fitting and ordered hair which Tracey matched to my existing hair. She designed a system that would fit with my age, lifestyle and, yes, my vanity! A few weeks later she fitted then cut my new hair in and styled it into the modern quiff I've secretly fancied having all my adult life. I have not looked so well in probably twenty-five years. Nobody notices it's a hair system, only that I look well. If I tell anybody that it is, man or woman, they are astonished and invariably say, ‘If a hair system looks this good, why not. Good on ya!’
This has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Not in deciding to have a hair system, but deciding to have a hair system with Ripley Layne.”
“After realising that I was starting to lose my hair at a very young age it really started to affect my confidence. I decided to do something about it.
All I saw on the television and newspapers were these really big companies stating they could save my hair and restore it. After spending thousands on treatment my hair was in no better better condition than when it started. This is when they offered me hair replacement. I knew nothing of this as they decided never to tell me at the start that this was available and were only interested in lining their pockets. I decided to spend thousands again to get that full head of hair I desired. They then told me it needed maintaining and decided to charge nearly £100 a month with very little discount or care for me really.
That's when I found Tracy by the off chance. Instantly from the moment I met her I knew I was in better hands. I have never looked back since. I have achieved amazing results from her hair replacement system and she maintains it on a monthly basis for a fraction of the price. The style, fit and end product is the best I have seen. I recommended tracy to anyone looking for an affordable hair replacement system that looks amazing.
She treats me as an individual and not just a number. In the end I have a full head of hair, look stylish and feel comfortable and the main thing is Tracy is a true professional, always true to her word, never lets me down and looks after me the best she can. I will never use anyone else again. Tracy is the best hair replacement person I have dealt with. No regrets.”
