They say “real men wear pink” but do real men wear hair?
Vanity can drive us all to do things to save or improve our look. Women wearing wigs is totally acceptable and even gaining in popularity in the recent years. But there is some question about whether men should don a perfect hair style when theirs lacks a bit… or a lot!
Can Men Wear Wigs?
Wigs for men are not nearly as popular as women’s wigs but we are seeing them more and more. The trick is to NOT know they are wearing wigs. Men don’t seem to want to let anyone know they are wearing a wig or a hairpiece, so the good ones are virtually undetectable...Good news for them! Unfortunately, the wigs that are noticeable on men are not the good ones! If you can easily tell a man is wearing a wig, it only serves to highlight the fact that wigs are fake looking and therefore is not a good option for men.
Wigs that Look Totally Natural! They exist! The wearable hair options get better and better all the time. Synthetic hair fiber is virtually indistinguishable from human hair in so many ways. Plus… synthetic hair does not lose its style or shape. This gives you a very low effort great style!
For men, because the hair styles are short for the most part, it is important to have it customized to fit your face and needs. The good news is you will only have to get one haircut! Lace front wigs will give you the most natural looking front hairline. This is important as this is the tell-tale sign of fake hair (if the hairline is not on a lace front material). You also want to look for a monofilament top or part. Mono top means the wig cap has a natural scalp look due to the hairs being hand tied into the cap, giving the best and most natural movement you can get in a wig.
Celebrities are wearing wigs or hairpieces without anyone knowing (Nicolas Cage, John Travolta, and Brett Michaels to name a few). Wigs for men are showing up more and more as the effects of our environment give our natural hair a beating. It’s a personal preference, but if you don’t want to go without hair, you don’t have to!
For all you guys out there… Feeling confident is key. Whether that means wearing a wig is up to you. The days of looking like your are wearing a squirrel tail on your head are gone. Wigs for men and women are beautifully crafted and undetectable as anything but your own hair if you wear them correctly.
