The answer to what a toupee is is fairly simple. We're sure you already have a pretty good idea of what a toupee is, and probably rightly so, but let's make it a little clearer.
The term "toupee" is used to represent a non-surgical hair replacement solution that existed before the hair system was replaced. The perfect and shortest answer to the question "what are toupees" is that they are the ancient solution to hair loss.
Let me introduce few different toupee types for a more in-depth look today.
Among all the lace hair systems, Swiss Lace t is the thinnest and lightest lace available on the market. It is a base made entirely of transparent Swiss lace, with hand-sewn lines to ensure better shape and durability. The swiss lace is soft and will offer you the most natural-looking front hairline. Each hair is hand-tied onto the lace base, creating natural hair movement. Made from Indian Remy Human hair, which is in super fine quality and soft yet strong, it ensures you a 4-6 months replacement period. All the knots in the front hairline are perfectly bleached and the hair looks just like it is growing out from your scalp. Swiss lace also provides the good breathability, that can even be worn in hot weather or during exercise.
Among lace hair systems, French Lace is more stronger and can last longer. It has a base made entirely of French lace, with reinforced stitching lines to create a well-fitting shape. The french lace is soft, light, breathable but also strong and durable. It offers you the most natural front hairline and the most comfortable fit. And the base is completely hand-tied, offering natural hair movement. Single knots are on the front 1/2'' of the hairpiece and double knots elsewhere.
All the knots in the front hairline are bleached to create an undetectable front hairline to look like your own hair is growing out from your scalp. The French lace can be customized to any size to fit your needs.
Fine Mono is a strong and durable mono hair system. It has Fine Monofilament in the center, and 1/8" Folded French Lace in the front edge with Poly Coating around the perimeter. The monofilament base gives you the most natural hair movement just like your own hair.
Please kindly note that the base of it cannot be cut off too much. The poly around the perimeter is around 1'' wide. If the poly in perimeter is cut off completely, you need to apply tapes or glue onto the monofilament base instead. Also, the base will become not that strong anymore without the poly around the base.
Fine Mono base is considered to be the most durable hair unit. The monofilament material is strong and the thick poly in perimeter makes this base structure even stronger. The big portion of monofilament in the base makes the base totally breathable and it is good for people who work out frequently or sweat a lot.
