Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

A toupee is a hairpiece mainly designed for men. Also referred to as hair replacement systems, hair systems, partial wigs, and half-wigs, toupees cover the traditional areas of hair loss or balding caused by male pattern baldness, usually on the top and front of the head. Men’s toupees blend with the wearer’s remaining natural hair on the sides and back of their head to create a natural-looking and realistic appearance. Superhairpieces offers a great collection of human hair toupees for men in different bases, sizes, colors, and more that can help disguise thinning hair or bald spots on your crown.

Toupees are mainly worn by men as they cover the main areas (top and front of the scalp) of balding caused by male pattern baldness. Wigs, meanwhile, cover the entire scalp and are worn more by women given that they usually carry longer-length hair. With that said, both genders can wear toupees and wigs, especially with men who can opt for full cap wigs if they desire longer hair or simply lack any hair to blend with a toupee.

Another difference is that you will absolutely need clips, tape or liquid adhesive to attach a toupee. Wigs can also be attached by these means, but more often than not, are simply worn like a hat without the use of an adhesive as they securely attach to the wearer’s scalp.

To purchase the perfect human hair toupee for men, there are a few steps you need to follow:

  1. Choose the right cap size - measure your area of hair loss so you know what hair system size works best for you to get the perfect fit.
  2. Choose the right base type - some bases will require more maintenance while others may not be suitable for your climate. Some base types are also more expensive than others so check that they are within your budget over the course of a year.
  3. Select the right hair color - selecting a hair color that doesn’t match with your natural hair will result in an unnatural appearance.
  4. Pick the right hair density - you will need to add a suitable amount of hair density that not only blends with your current hair density, but is also age-appropriate. Too much can look unnatural!

Hair density refers to the number of strands of hair an individual has per square centimeter of their scalp expressed as a percentage. Essentially, the greater the hair density, the higher the percentage and the more voluminous the hair will be on your hair replacement system. At Superhairpieces, we offer the following hair densities: light density which is 90%; light to medium density which is 100-110%; medium density which is 120%; and medium to heavy which is 130%.

Choosing the right hair density will depend on factors such as your age, eye color, and the base type. For example, if you want a natural-looking thin skin system, you will need to go with a lighter hair density. More durable monofilament systems, on the other hand, can carry heavier hair densities which is why they are more durable.

How to choose the right hair density for your wig or toupee

How long your men’s toupee lasts will depend on the type of base as well as the particular unit. Ultra thin skin hair systems are disposable and generally last 4-6 weeks, though they can last longer with the right care. More durable hairpieces for men like monofilament systems can last longer with some lasting as long as six months or more. For more information on the bases and their qualities, you can refer below:

Monofilament toupees: Durable, comfortable, breathable
Thin skin hair systems: Comfortable, invisible, undetectable, natural hairline
Lace hair systems: Comfortable, breathable, invisible, undetectable, natural hairline

How long does a Superhairpieces hair system last?

Toupees will not fall off if they have been properly attached. If you have been thorough and careful with the application process, from using the right type of adhesive to making sure you haven’t got the system wet for at least 24 hours after your first installation, the hairpiece should remain fully secure. If this is the case, you won’t need to worry about your toupee falling off and you won’t even be able to remove it by force either. The only way to remove it cleanly and painfully is by applying adhesive remover or adhesive solvent and slowly lifting it off.

You can certainly shower with your toupee on. With that said, there are precautions you need to take. First and foremost, you need to make sure to avoid getting your non-surgical hair replacement system wet in the first 24 hours after your installation. This is so that the adhesive fully cures and the unit will remain secure on your head. You should also look to avoid using extremely hot water along with using shampoos and conditioners that are free of sulfates and parabens.

How to show with a hair system

You can certainly sleep with your toupee on! However, to prolong the life of your men’s toupee, you should look to follow certain steps such as using silk or satin pillowcases, making sure your hair isn’t damp or wet, and that your system is secure and not lifting off before you go to sleep.

Swimming with a hair system should be no problem regardless of the base type. While we don’t recommend swimming with a thin skin poly hairpiece as the hair could shed, you should still have no problems as a whole provided you don’t expose your head to chlorine for too long. If you are planning on swimming for a long period of time, we recommend wearing a swimming cap.

You should also make sure not to have your system wet for at least 24 hours if you’ve just installed it so that your tape or liquid adhesive can fully cure and keep your unit secure.

In general, toupees are not itchy and if installed properly, you should experience no problems. With that said, everyone’s skin is different and reacts differently. For example, a poly skin system might be comfortable for you, but cause irritation for someone else. In addition, you may experience itchiness, but it’s not because of the toupee, but rather, other factors such as:

  • A lack of maintenance
  • Skin conditions
  • Hair coloring
  • Allergic reactions to adhesive used

While we provide estimates for how long a system will last, they can potentially last longer if well-maintained. And so, how often you should replace your toupee depends on a number of factors. If you are experiencing more hair shedding and noticing bald patches or spots on your hairpiece, that’s the first major sign it might be time to replace your hairpiece. Declining hair quality and the hair color fading are other factors that could determine it’s time to get a new toupee.

How do you know when the hair system is ready to be replaced?

There are many factors as to why your hair is shedding, fading or getting dry and brittle. Other than the usual wear and tear, one major reason is the type of shampoo or conditioner you’re using and the ingredients they’re formulated with. It’s important to make sure you’re either using products designed for hairpieces or at the very least, products that contain no sulfates, parabens or other harmful ingredients. The wrong shampoo or conditioner can cause fading, excess shedding, strip the protective layer of the hair and its oils, and frizzy hair among other issues.

Why do hair systems go bad over time?

It’s completely normal to see glue residue in your toupee hair or on your hair system base if you’re using liquid adhesive as your method of attachment. To get rid of it, you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Apply and rub the adhesive solvent on the glue residue areas. Let the solvent sit for a few minutes.

  2. Using a fine tooth comb, gently brush your hair towards your front hairline. The comb’s narrow teeth should collect a good chunk of the glue residue. You can also use a plastic card such as an old credit card.

  3. Use paper towels to remove the residue and continue to comb until a good amount of residue is removed.

  4. Afterwards, wipe and clean your hair and scalp using a cloth before washing with shampoo and conditioner.

Generally, we recommend removing your non-surgical hair replacement system for maintenance at least every two weeks, especially if you’re wearing a thin skin hairpiece. For lace and monofilament systems, maintenance can be done every four weeks.

Provided you’re using a proper adhesive solvent or remover, you should be able to painlessly and smoothly remove your toupee off your scalp. Forcibly removing it without a solvent will not only be painful and hurt your scalp, but also potentially damage your hairpiece base.

There should be no damage on the scalp provided you are properly attaching, removing, and maintaining your men’s toupee. With that being said, we recommend performing a skin patch test before using any tape or liquid adhesive for the first time to attach your hair system. This will help gauge if your scalp can handle it.

The cost of a toupee depends on a number of factors. The most important one is the specific hairpiece you choose and what type of base it is. Whether you’re choosing a stock hair system or a custom made hair system also matters as the latter will cost more. Keep in mind that along with the hairpiece, you will also need supplies such as your adhesive, adhesive solvent, and more. As an estimate, we calculate that the average monthly cost for a toupee is $127 over the course of a year.

When a customer gets a toupee installed, they not only have a full head of hair again, but in many cases, look younger and much more confident. You can see the results for yourself below:
