Toupee Hair Piece and Other Hair Pieces
Hair pieces are effective tools used by some individuals with bald patches for covering up areas of hair loss. Also known as a toupee, this type of cover-up can provide effective coverage for people who wish to disguise a smaller spot of baldness.
A toupee hair piece differs from a wig in that a wig covers the entire scalp of the person wearing it. A toupee, on the other hand, is usually affixed with a type of adhesive to keep it attached, and covers only what is needed rather than the entire head. Typically, a wig can be removed easily, depending on how it is affixed. A toupee will stay put for longer and require removal of the adhesive in order to lift it.
Like a wig, a hair piece can come in a number of different styles and materials, including natural hair and synthetic. A toupee should typically be applied by a skilled stylist in order to ensure that it looks as natural and integrated with the wearer’s hair as possible. Some can be applied with metal clips, though many people opt for the use of special glue for a more secure and natural application.
