Losing hair can be frustrating for many men.Fortunately, hair replacement wigs and toupees have come a long way in recent years. They are a great option to restore your hair, especially if you want to avoid the risks that come with surgery. 

In this blog we'll be going through the process of attaching a men's hair replacement piece.

Refer to the video below for the detailed process captured on video:

 Step 1: Hair Template

Hands on the forehead can be used as a guide to make sure hairpiece is not placed too far or forawrd or too far back on head. 

Step 8: Place

The hairpiece will then be pressed firmly on the head to make sure it is secure.

The hairpiece can then be cut and styled to the man's preference. It is recommended to cut and style after hairpiece is attached rather than prior. This is to reduce any errors in the desired final look.

Step 9: Smile
