    I see all these guys sporing a wig ( or peluca as we say in spanish) if you're a guy, if you lose your hair ..embrace it, mpst of the time its sexy as all get out...but over 40, dyed dark hair and a wig to match , uggg just my thought ( incidentally , I am 48 , aTON of grey hair which I don't color and am a Very busy stylist 25 years in the industry, so I kinda know whats up..just saying these guys need to accept being hot, bald, gray and 45,50,60.....it can happen
    But Toupes.....clocked a mile away...not fooling anyone.

    I'm a little surprised guys still get toupes. Seems like hair transplants are the popular choice these days for guys that want to cover up.

    A toupee is the closest you can get to owning a tribble.

    How else could a straight-acting man wear mink out of the house?

    I've given thought to a toupee. I still have my own hair, and I like it a little longer, not a buzz, but that's also a bother at times, especially with the heat here. Plus I'm graying, hairline receding like my late Father, and finally getting some thinning in back, not long before I look like Friar Tuck.

    I've toyed with the idea of buzzing my hair, then getting a wig. Sort of the concept of a convertible car (Brit drophead): have hair when I want it, buzzed when I don't in a flash. Plus I can lose the gray, and even change the style a little with different toupees.

    It doesn't matter what a man looks like he will get an much more attention w/a shaved head then a hair piece. Like the man said, "save it and own it".

    Don't do it, AD. You'll look foolish if you start sporting a rug. You're perfect just as you are.

    You will have to do a 'Sinatra' in order to keep it convincing. Apparently, he had several, all at various stages of 'growth' and wore them in succession as the weeks went by.

    I want to start wearing wigs, I hate straightening my hair every single day, and my hair's been looking fried beyond recognition lately. What can you do tho?
