It commonplace for women to wear hair extensions, to add volume and hide thinning, but men’s hairpieces are still a growing industry.
Men losing their hair is a common thing that can happen at any age and they can be left with a bald area, which can either be embraced, or taken as an opportunity for a new style. A hairpiece can help you change your look.
Whether you choose something simple and discreet or a really standout hairstyle, there’s a perfect toupee out there waiting for you .
Step one – choose your hairpiece
Think about the style and colour you’ll want before you order. Be sure to pick a high quality hairpiece, so it fits in seamlessly with your natural hair.
Step two – get professional guidance
To ensure your new hairpiece will look natural, seek guidance from a professional. With help, you’ll need to decide which area on top of your head will be the best smooth surface for the adhesive.
Step three – dealing with the adhesive
The adhesive can be glue or tape used to help secure the hairpiece to your head. The adhesive should be certified, non-toxic, and present no danger to the skin. If you think you might be allergic to any of the ingredients in your adhesive, you’ll need to chat to a professional and check whether they might want to do a patch test. You’ll probably need someone to help you apply the adhesive.
Step four – apply the hairpiece
With assistance, slowly roll the hairpiece on the hairless area, starting at the centre. Be careful as you go do it as smoothly as possible.
Step five – styling
Once the hairpiece has been attached, all that’s left to do is style it! You’ll probably need you natural hair shaping around the hairpiece to help it blend. Once you’ve got the cut down, styling is next on the agenda. You can always ask for styling advice and buy suitable products to keep your hair looking good at home. Hair replacement systems require maintenance, so make sure you treat it well and keep all future appointments. Until then, enjoy your new look!
