You’re probably doing some research to figure out how toupees and wigs for men work. Well, for starters, it’s important to find a hair piece that’s suitable to your face, hairline, and overall style so you could achieve that desired natural look. To execute a natural-looking hair piece, you’ll have to consider the hair density on a toupee.
Hair density is expressed as a percentage that determines the amount of hair on the toupee. The higher the hair density, the more hair volume and coverage on a hair piece. What’s the catch you may be asking? Well, if you opt for a hairpiece that’s higher in density than your natural hair density, the toupee will potentially look unnatural and detectable.
Researching and shopping for a perfect toupee for yourself will take time. However, it’s important to be patient with the process, especially if you’re spending your hard-earned money on high-quality wigs for men. It’s best to visit your local hair supplier store and feel and observe the different levels of hair density to ensure you get the best results.
The four general levels of hair density
#1 Light hair density 80-90%
Light hair density is perfect for men with thinning or naturally thinner hair. Getting lighter-density hair provides more of a natural look – your family and friends won’t be able to tell that you’ve got a toupee on!
#2 Light to medium density 100-110%
This hair density is on the lighter side, however, it does provide additional coverage to the scalp and is still a great option if you have thinning hair. If you prefer extra volume you can’t go wrong as it also provides even more styling options while maintaining a natural look.
#3 Medium density 120%
Some might consider this the perfect hair density as it has plenty of coverage and hair volume – and if that suits your natural hair and lifestyle, then go for it! Be wary that it won’t look natural if you have really thin natural hair or are older in age.
#4 Medium to heavy 130-140%
If you’re a young adult who desires loads of coverage and hair volume, then you should try men’s hairpieces within this range as it provides a full look without being too overwhelming. Toupees and wigs available in the market with a higher range of hair density. However, wearing a hair piece with higher hair density is uncommon for daily usage as it gives off an unnatural look.
There isn’t an answer set in stone for the best hair density as it differs from person to person. It all depends on preference and various factors such as your age, skin tone and even eye color! You need to ensure that it’s as natural-looking as you want it to be, this is done by choosing a hair density closest to your natural hair.
