Many men will at some point begin to lose some or all of their hair. Some of these men may decide to pursue their options to hide or coverup this hair loss. One of the options available is to purchase a toupee. There are many choices available and the user should research well before purchasing a hairpiece.
Individuals interested in hair coverups should visit a store in their community to view all the available options. If any hair remains on the user’s head color matching is very important. A well-fitting piece in the wrong color will look ridiculous. Additionally the feel or texture of the replacement hair should be similar to any remaining hair so it will blend better.
Perhaps the most important aspect of purchasing a hair piece is deciding how it should attach. Attachment styles iclude semi-permanent, temporary, and clip attachments. Semi-permanent styles adhere to the scalp with the use of glue, other bonding agents, or is woven into the existing hair. These are usually only removed by experienced stylists, usually every four to six weeks. Temporary attachments normally use double sided tape and are easily removable. This method may not hold up as well during heavy activities. The last style is clip attachment. A clip attaches the new hair to the user’s existing hair and leaves no evidence behind when it is removed.
