What Is Exactly Glue on Hair for Men?

As defined at the beginning of the post, glue on hair for men is another word for hair systems or hairpieces installed to the wearer’s head using tape or glue. Glue on hair for men has existed for some time. They became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when the male population of the West started to care more about their looks.

Today, there is a plethora of glue-on hair pieces out there. Whether you’re a hair loss sufferer or considering selling glue on hair, you will find much natural-looking glue-on toupees to accommodate men’s looks and lifestyles.

Slightly different from wigs, glue on toupees are semi-permanent hair pieces. When attached, the wearer can’t remove it whenever he wants. He’ll have to wear it to sleep and bath, and it remains attached to his head like his own hair.

But when we talk about glued-on hair for men, we specifically talk about hairpieces designed to blend in with the wearer’s existing hair on the sides and back of the head to give a full-head-of-hair look. That’s the critical difference between a glue on hairpiece and a wig.

Glue-on hairpieces for men are the handiest and most effective approach to covering balding patches. It helps the wearer achieve the latest, most voguish hairstyles possible in the safest, most harmless way possible.

How Long Do Glue on Hair for Men Last?

The glued on hair can stay safe on the head for around 3-4 weeks. And after that, the wearer needs to go back to the hair salon to get it removed and reattached.

Why Do You Need to Reinstall the Glue on Hairpiece?

Once the toupee is glued on, our natural hair grows underneath the base, and our scalp continues to sweat. Gradually, there’ll be buildup underneath, the glue on hair will become less sticky, and a corner at the front or sides may start to lift. The wearer must remove it for maintenance and wash it before reattaching it to the head.

The general interval between two maintenance sessions is 3–4 weeks (for all base materials). Whenever the glued on hair for men starts to get loose or a corner of it starts lifting, it’s time for maintenance and a reinstallation.

What’s the “Lifespan” of Glue on Hair for Men?

The lifespan of glue on hair for men is from the moment a new toupee gets installed on the person’s head until it can’t be used anymore and must be disposed of. On average, most glue on hair can last for about three months. But it will vary from one unit to another.

The essential factor contributing to the lifespan of glue on hair for men is the durability of the base material, such as lace, skin, monofilament, etc.

Monofilament

  • Lace: Lace is well-known for providing the most realistic look, undetectable hairlines and parts, and unbeatable breathability. French lace usually lasts 3–4 months. However, as an upgrade to French lace, Swiss lace feels more comfortable on the head, looks more natural, and can last 1-2 months.
  • Skin: Skin bases are made of a thin PU membrane, resembling our epidermis. 0.02-0.03 mm skin toupees last for around 4 weeks. 0.06 to 0.08 mm toupees can last 2-4 months. Those over 0.1 mm are known as thick-skin toupees, usually lasting 3-6 months.
  • Monofilament: Monofilament is the most durable base material. It is usually applied with other materials, such as PU perimeters, for better strength. Monofilament toupees typically last 6–12 months if taken care of appropriately.

The list above is only a guideline for men’s glued on hair. To know precisely how long the glue on hair for men will last, refer to the product specification or ask your supplier.

How Much Does Glue on Hair for Men Cost?

The prices of glue on hair for men vary mainly depending on the base material and the supplier or hair vendor you choose.

With human hair toupees for men, their prices mainly differ in base materials.

  • Lace: Regarding base material, lace costs more than other base materials because it looks the most real and is the most breathable. Swiss lace costs more than French lace.
  • Skin: Glue on hair for men with a skin base usually costs less than other glue on hair pieces. They are the best bargain for being easy to maintain for new wearers.
  • Mono: Monofilament is generally used with other base materials for an extensive lifespan and usually costs less than lace.
  • Lace front: Lace is generally more expensive than other hair base materials. A super realistic and undetectable front hairline is the key to ensuring the most natural look. Lace-front toupees only have the front section made of lace, creating the most realistic hairline and saving money.
  • Other hybrid hair systems: Different base materials can be used together as hybrid hair systems for specific purposes, such as monofilament with a PU perimeter to strengthen it, a PU base has a few lace windows on top for better breathing, etc. Prices of these hybrid glue on toupees for men also vary.
