What are the differences between the Original Series and Premium Series mannequins?

Original Series mannequins have small or medium head sizes. The small head sizes are great for timely services at workshop events and advanced educational training. The medium head sizes mimic a realistic and lifelike experience that is perfect for practicing at home and in school. The Premium Series mannequins have the largest head size and highest densities, perfect for showcasing your work and participating in competitions.

What are the sustainable alternative Slip-On and Cap Series mannequins?

These are our sustainable alternative options to traditional foam mannequins. They are eco-friendly products that include our Slip-On and Cap Series mannequin categories. 

Cap Series is a space-saving, detachable hair training tool. It’s available in a wide range of lengths and textures, mimicking hair specifications from most of your favorite Original Series mannequins. Cap Series utilizes ABS-recyclable material, eliminating the use of traditional mannequins and reducing waste in landfills. 

Our Slip-On Series is an affordable, space-saving, foam-free solution. With the same premium quality, 100% human hair you’ve come to expect from us, but in an easy-to-use slip-on design.  

So, why is Pivot Point hair your best choice?

As a family company, the core of Pivot Point’s business is people. We are committed to our employees’ well-being. We want to know that manufacturers with whom we partner hold the same values and ethical standards for their employees.

Pivot Point proactively requested SA8000® certification from our contracted hair-manufacturing factory to ensure the quality of goods matches the well-being of the artisans who create them. The SA8000 certification affords our partners the confidence that our educational hair goods are produced in sanctioned conditions.

SA8000 certification solidifies a commitment to human rights by guarding against the use of child and forced labor, discrimination and unfair disciplinary practices, working hours and compensation.
