My client is interested in a low cost solution to deploy in hundreds of hair replacement studios that would allow a consultant to model a person's head in order to create a custom hair piece.

It must be a very precise model in order to be useful. But it also has to be cost effective and easy to use since hundreds of solutions will be deployed in non-technical environments.

Any suggestions?

Unfortunately your client is not going to find what they're looking for yet. At the moment, the only scanners that are easy to use are not very accurate or long winded or both (photogrammetry methods, point scanning) and those that are accurate and fast are too complex to be used by a layman and far, far too expensive to be kept in a hair replacement studio (laser scanners).

I know whereof I speak since I wanted to have a concession stand at fun fairs offering little busts of people...
