    Disappointed. I was expecting you to say you wear a glittery fabulous hair accessory. Feeling pretty stupid. XD

    Hope this helps. I chose 75% density so it looks convincing. Many go with 100% in desperation to get a 16 y/o hairline, but it just looks wiggy, especially on older guys.

    Looks great, where did you get it from OP?

    Have you considered a hair transplant?
    I went through every possible treatment option, including hair transplants. If you're balding at a young age, it means that within a few years any improvement from a transplant will be undone by further recession, leaving little plugs of hair at the front and a massive scar on the back of your head. Not to mention the extortionate cost!

    I also tried finasteride, but the side effects were just too much to cope with.

    When push comes to shove, hairpieces have come a long way since the days of grandpa Joe's toupee which looks like a dead rat and flies off with a gust of wind. Despite the (unjust and hypocritical) stigma, a hairpiece is the only way you can get a full head of hair, with no side effects whatsoever. It is also very economical when you buy from the right place and avoid the high-street salons like the plague.

    Ordered it from hairpiecewarehouse in the US and got it cut, styled and attached in a hair salon. After that I just do all the maintenance myself until the piece wears out (usually lasts 8-12 months when looked after properly).

    Are you never tempted to just go skinheady?

    I can totally dig a Bruce Willis/Dwayne Johnson/Dominic Purcell/Wentworth Miller.
    Also Dom Purcell and Wentworth Miller both still have their hairlines. So when they shave their heads, their faces are still framed by their hair shadow.

    Dom P has a receding hairline and WM is thinning on top hence the crop.

    They're both dudes working with what they've got and looking great.

    I can't see any recession in any photos of DP. And I can't find any pictures of WM thinning either.

    Anyway, some people feel confident embracing their baldness, whilst others don't. It's a personal choice at the end of the day.

    It totally is personal choice. But it's sad if people are unhappy in their own skin.

    They're both experiencing hair loss in different (but normal) ways. Purcell is losing hair at the temples and Miller on top. No big deal.

    Just so I can imagine this better... you got a full lace wig and gel the entire thing to your scalp?

    I have a partial to cover the bald areas and then yes I use adhesive to bond it to my scalp.
