● What is a men's hair system?
A men’s hair system is a popular method used for solving hair loss. A hair system for men is essentially a piece of material (PU or lace) that is stuck to the head. Human hair is knotted onto the material and creates the look of real hair coming from the scalp. A human hair wig is far superior in quality and aesthetic than a factory machine produced wig. A men's hair system is commonly known as a toupee or wig for men.
What is the difference between a wig for men and a hair system?
Essentially they are the same, but hair system refers to the high quality, hand-crafted type of modern wig. A hair system is an industry created word to differentiate different types of wigs for men. Modern day wigs for men are nothing like the wigs of old, that you used to joke slip, lopsided on your professors balding head. Wigs for men from Lordhair use unique craftsmanship, knotting each hair by hand onto a base, usually made from lace or a thin skin-like material. This means that the base is also inconspicuous and looks like your own hair is coming from your scalp. Even from up close! It even feels like your hair!
What is a wig for a man called?
A wig for a man is usually simply called wigs for men, or toupee, or hair system. Men’s wigs are an increasingly popular method of covering hair loss because in recent years the craftsmanship involved in producing wigs for men has improved dramatically, especially from brands like Lordhair. Nowadays, wigs for men are easier to buy than ever before, with many different base types, hair lengths and colors to choose from.
● How long do wigs for men last?
Wigs for men last between 1 month to 1 year, depending on the base type and how well it is cared for. Skin (aka PU) wigs for men have the shortest lifespan but are the most realistic and convenient. Lace hair systems are good for men who do sport or sweat frequently. Mono is incredibly long-lasting but less realistic than the former two. There are many things that can be done to prolong the life of a wig for men, including the follwing:
Clean it in the shower regularly, getting rid of sweat that causes it to debond.
When removing for cleaning, use a debonder spray to loosen it before CAREFULLY pulling at the sides and using a hair dryer to apply heat to slowly lift it off.
Choose the correct base for your lifestyle and how often you want to be replacing it. If you value realism above all else and can change your hair system every two months, a skin wig for men is best. If you sweat a lot, a lace wig for men may be best. If you prefer to buy a hairpiece that lasts a year before replacing and do not mind that it is not as realistic as a skin men’s wig, then mono (mono-filament) may be your best option!
● How does a man keep a wig on?
Wig glue, wig tape or clips. There are generally three options when it comes to installing wigs for men. The most popular options are using glue or using tape. Installing a wig for men with glue or tape means it can stay on for up to a month before deep cleaning.
Some men's wigs come with clips, for those who want to remove it every day, this type of wig can often last longer as there is no risk of it being damaged when removed or during activities such as showering or sleeping, because a clip-on hair patch is removed for these activities.
● What kind of wig for men looks most natural?
A thin skin (aka polyurethane or PU) hair system is the most natural type of wig for men. It is a plastic wrap-like material onto which hairs are knotted, so it is transparent. This means that skin wigs for men are almost undetectable on the head. The most popular Lordhair skin hair system is the UTS, which is 0.03mm thick and the hairs are ‘looped’ onto the material and are not tied. This makes it look like hair is literally coming from your scalp.
● Do wigs for men fall off easily?
No, wigs for men do not fall off. They are attached with strong bond beauty glue or wig tape, which is water resistant. Most men who wear a men's hair system can carry out all daily activities, including swimming, sleeping and even skydiving!
Can a wig for men look good?
Yes, absolutely. A toupee (aka wig for men) can look amazing in transforming men’s looks, and men’s lives, by bringing back their confidence and helping them be their best self. In most cases, a men’s wig needs to look as natural on the wearer as possible. To look natural in a wig for men, it is best to buy a human hair wig, and choose the density correct for your hair type, ethnicity and age. In general, wigs for older men look best in a lower density (between extra-light and medium-light).
How to choose density when buying wigs for men?
When buying a wig for men, you should be mindful of how ‘thick’ it looks on your head. It is important to choose the correct hair system density. How to choose the best men’s wig density? In general wig density should suit your age and ethnicity. Look at the handy infographic when choosing your men’s wig density.
● Can you shower with hair system?
Yes, you can shower in a men’s hair system. It is actually highly recommended to shower in a wig for men every day or every other day, this is because it helps to clean away oils that emanate from the scalp. Oil can cause the bonding to break down faster so when men shower often, the wig may actually last longer!
When showering in wigs for men, it is important to use a very soft hand, gently rubbing the hair at the roots. Do not pull on the hair of the men’s wig. Human hair wigs for men are delicate, just as real hair from the scalp is, so should be treated with care. Once you have washed the roots, you can condition the ends of the men’s wig. Using shampoo and conditioner designed for wigs for men is the best way to wash your hair system.
When styling a male wig after showering, use a wide-toothed comb to brush out the hair. It is best to let it air dry, or at least try to let it air dry 80% and finish the drying process whilst styling it into the desired shape.
● Can you swim with a hair system?
Yes you can you swim with a hair system. The bond is waterproof, the brand that many Lordhair wigs for men wearers choose is Ghost Bond. Swimming in a hair system is also no problem. It must be noted that regular swimming will shorten hair system life. However, occasional swimming and pool diving will not majorly affect your hair system lifespan.

● Is a wig better than a hair transplant?
A wig for men is better than a hair transplant for men because there is NO RISK involved, the results are INSTANT, long and shiny hair and wigs for men are less expensive than a hair transplant.
The benefits of wigs for men:
Quick and easy = a men’s wig can be with you in 1 week.
No risk = unlike a hair transplant, wig’s for men have no risk of infection or any long-term effect (such as planting hairs at undesirable angles).
Lowest cost-per-wear = wigs for men in general have the lowest cost per wear as they can cost as little as $180, sturdy hair systems can cost less than $250 and last up to 5 months. As compared to a hair transplant which can cost as much as $10,000 and often requires more than one hair transplant to achieve a desired result, wigs for men get results from day 1. Wigs for men do not require a huge sum of money upfront, with a risk of being unhappy. If your men’s wig is not to your desired style or look, you can simply remove it, wash it and restyle it before placing it back on your head.

Unlike hair transplants, wigs for men carry none of these risks and are a much more budget friendly option.
● Is it OK for guys to wear wigs?
Yes, it is absolutely OK. If women can wear hair extensions, and men can shape a style their beard without fear or humiliation, why can’t we put on wigs for men to feel more masculine and improve confidence?
