Almost all of us have been into those horrible nightmares that we might lose our hair or we might turn bold and that dull look will overcome our long and good hair days. And thus most of do take care of their hair such that in long term it does not wear out. But at times it does happen that to look better in the present, we might not take good care of the hair and get ourselves busy in the taming of our hair and getting it the best of it.
While the hair is being heated and curled for the better look, it is being damaged and fallen over time. And for the same reason, the wigs and the hairpieces and the toupees are getting more popular because you never know when the other person is wearing a toupee or is it their natural hair. A toupee or a hairpiece or in the common language, a wig is the hair piece or the partial wig of the natural or the synthetic hair that is being used to cover a part of the crown or the full baldness or even for the theatrical or the occasional purpose.
With the growing popularity and that people cannot easily recognize if one is wearing one, the celebrities have started wearing them and thereby increase the popularity of it just by the use of it. the toupees are usually being used and worn by the men but with passage of time even women have started using it to cover their exposed baldness or for some similar reasons.
The only disadvantage of the toupee is that it is not able to match the natural color of the hair of the wearer as it might change but with time, the stylists and the manufacturers and looking into the matter and that they are bringing in such technology that suits the hair of the wearer and that it doesn’t get faded or changes in color.
Men usually resort to toupees only when they don’t find any other alternatives. The hair implantations or the propecia, medical treatments, or simply accepting the fact f being bald and that they look handsome in the same is what they tend to get into. And when they simply can’t get to that fact, they try out the toupees or the wigs to satisfy their looks and themselves.
Many stars like James Stewart, Hank Williams, Rip Taylor, Carl and Rob Reiner, and many other western as well as Asian actors and artists wear the toupees to hide their baldness and that at times they wear for the sake of the shooting and theatrical appearances. And because of the same reasons, toupees are sometimes taken as humorous. The weird looks that they give to wearer and that they are being temporarily used makes the other laugh over them.
Therefore, toupees, although popular but is declining in today’s era because people have started believing and accepting the fact that the baldness is the new in. The natural methods are tried and thereafter left on the luck.
