Does Tyler Hynes Wear a Toupee

Discussions about the hair of middle-aged male celebrities never stop.

Questions like “Does Tyler Hynes wear a toupee?”, “Is Tyler Hynes bald?”, or “Is Tyler Hynes’s hair real?” started to go into our eyes in recent years.

Is Tyler Hynes, the handsome young actor really wearing some kinds of hairpieces due to hair loss? Or does he wear it for other reasons?

In today’s blog, we will walk you through all your doubts about his hair. Now let’s dive directly in!

Who is Tyler Hynes?

Tyler Hynes is a Canadian actor and filmmaker born in 1986 in Toronto, Ontario.

Unlike most other actors and actresses, Tyler started acting professionally very early in life, at only 8 years old, after his parents enrolled him in a summer camp at Young Peoples Theatre.


After getting his start in Theater, he moved in front of the camera with his first feature film, “Little Men,” starring Mariel Hemingway.

He then starred in various television and film productions alongside Tim Roth, Andie MacDowell, James Franco, Sienna Miller, Henry Cavil, Elliot Page, Billy Bob Thornton, etc.

At only 36 years old, he has won a number of very prestigious awards in his career, such as “Best Performance-TV Drama Movie- Hollywood Young Actors Awards”, and “Best Performance Ensemble-TV Movie Comedy-Hollywood Young Artist Awards”, and “Spirit of The Capital Award.”

When and Why People Start to Talk About Tyler Hynes’ Hair

Doubts about whether Tyler Hynes wearing a wig or not can be traced to his appearance in Sweet Carolina, Hallmark’s latest flick, featuring Tyler Hynes and Mean Girls’ very own Gretchen Wieners, Lacey Chabert.

The film was released on Saturday, 15 May 2021. 

In that movie, Tyler flaunted a new look featured by a head of long hair and a beard that had never been seen before, which came as a big surprise to his fans.

It was seen as highly deviating from Hynes’ usual look with a cropped haircut and no facial hair that had already been deeply rooted in people’s minds.


As Tyler Hynes had a significantly longer hairstyle that looks unnatural in that movie, some Hallmark viewers thought he was wearing a toupee wig or certain kinds of hairpieces.

And there are also voices saying that he wore it due to hair loss.


But is that really the case?

According to Tyler’s statement, he was growing his hair out to change up his look for acting roles.

He had a post with his long hairstyle on Twitter in 2019 with his long hair look in Flip That Romance that responded to his fan, “Appreciate all the beard and long hair support. Spent 6 months growing it in preparation for this role. I get all my acting powers from it”. 

So it seems that Tyler Hynes continued to grow out his hair since filming FlipThat Romance and didn’t wear a wig actually.


Another reason why his fans suspected Hynes wearing toupees or not is that he had diverse hairstyles in his movies- typically most male celebrities do not change it very frequently.

However, this is not the evidence for Hynes is wearing hairpieces.

Possibly his hairstyles experienced some transformations just in concert with the characters starred by him in his movies in many cases, just like how female celebrities change their hairstyles so much.

How to Achieve a More Natural Hair Look If Tyler Hynes is Bald?

Complaints from Tyler Hynes fans that they dislike his longer hairstyle is that it looks very unnatural on his head, just like wearing a wired wig.

If Hynes is experiencing hair loss, the modern hair replacement system is a more natural solution than the wig he wore in his movie to conceal the baldness.

    However Tyler wears his hair is HIS business. I think he looks gorgeous in all the different styles.

  2. Credit to his hair stylist/ makeup artist for making real hair look fake. Just glad I’m not the only one who thought his hairline looked unnatural.

  3. I just finished watching Sweet Carolina.. I am not familiar with the actor Tyler Hynes, and have discovered I am not alone in belief that Mr. Hynes hair style appeared fake. While the beard was very becoming and compliments his features for his part in the movie, the longer locks and sides are distinguishing, the front part if his hair style just didn’t work with the rest of it. It looked pasted down, heavy, and unfortunately, fake looking as what a hair piece would produce. Layer or fluff the fronts a bit so it doesn’t .appear over gel or sprayed down and I believe it would provide a more natural look. Try leaning over and blow drying it to fluff or give it a lighter look. Long locks are great and very appealing. Just avoid the goop that can weigh it down and cause it to look weighted, heavy, flat, or glued. New hair styles will always take time to figure out.

    Tyler Hynes is a great actor. However he decides to wear his hair is his business. Somethings are just personal. It does not take away from the handsome and kind hearted person he is. I’ve watched many videos of him and he is always so kind, courteous and respectful of everyone. He also has an appreciation of his fans that is outstanding.
    Please, Tyler, another Hallmark movie soon.


  7. Tyler Hynes, is a natural. So, the parts he play’s, I’m walking along side him…. It’s been decades, I’ll say it. I would so like to meet Mr. Hynes….. Will he be in the South in 2023? Just Hoping……..

● What hobbies and interests do you have?

I enjoy exercising. That’s a very important part of my life. I’m a super active person.

● Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

No, not that I know of. I’m a very realistic person. If you mention outlandish stuff like aliens, monster in the bush, I’d be out of my mind.

● What is something you would love to do in the future?

I want to learn how to swim. I know it might sound a bit sarcastic, as I just mentioned that I enjoy doing exercise. Unfortunately, swimming hasn’t been on my list. I think I better catch up on that.

● What wig would you wear if you wore one and why?

I’d give HW1 a try. It looks natural and beautiful. Though we categorize it as a medical wig, almost any female can wear it. It’s got a lace mesh base, breathable, and flexible. You don’t need glue or tape to fix it to your head. Pretty easy, and it gives you all the long hair look a girl could want.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

At our end-of-year conference, my colleagues agreed that I’m a warm hearted, positive, and easy-going teammate. It gives me a sense of reward.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t like being confined in a very small space. I believe it was due to a childhood experience. When I was six years old, I accidentally tripped and fell into a shallow well. I had to wait for two hours before I was found. Since then, I’ve found I just can’t tolerate the idea of being alone. I guess that makes me an active team player.

  • You are happiest when…

This may sound boastful, but it’s true. It’s just part of my nature to help others. When I actually see that what I did for them has helped them achieve something, it just makes me excited.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

I recomend HS25V. Oftentimes I’d introduce this model to my new clients to start with, so they can introduce this to their new clients see if hair systems are what really suit them, before they carry on with lace or mono hair systems.

I’m into so many things. All the popular stuff you name: Swimming, badminton, running, all for keeping me in good shape.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

They keep calling me “pretty Winni pretty brainy.” I’d take that as a compliment. I’d say I’m generally pretty fast in term of thinking and figuring out solutions. My teammates often turn to me for help, too. And It turned out that most of the time my ideas worked for them.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

I’m a typical town girl, you know. I’m into cats and dogs. But things like snakes, all sorts of insects, and hamsters; they are not my cup of tea. So, never get them near me.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that?

Most of my clietns are after Q6. And their clients happened to be guys who are into hair systems that are durable and natural. Q6 is a pretty good pick for them. With proper care, it should easily last 6 months.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I’m always afaid of heights. With any tall buildings, be it a chimney or TV tower, I look at it, and imagine I’m looking down right from the top, it will give me sweaty palms.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

Not at all. I generally love all pets. Dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabits, etc. I love them.

  • Do you have a favourite quote?

When you feel tired,it means you are walking uphill. I believe this quote as a truth that gives me a lift whenever I’m down. I believe there’s no gain without pain. Without trying, we can’t achieve anything.

  • Which men’s/women’s hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

With me personally, the best-selling hair system has been HS1. It has what it’s required out of a good quality hair system, in terms of a natural-looking hairline, undetectable scalp, etc. Most wearers and salon owners are familiar with it. Plus, all our clients have faith in the quality of this hair system. According to their feedback, this is an easy-to-attach, easy-to-maintain hair system for both men and women.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t know why I share the same gene with Doraemon. I’m scared of rats. I’m a 6’3″, but I hate rats; seeing one really freaks me out.

  • Which men/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

New Australia. When it first came out in early 2023, it made me top of sales. I think most wearers like it because at the design statge, our experts considered all possible aspects people could want from a hairpiece, such as a natural look, a level of comfort, and affordablity; it’s similar to lace, but most wearers can afford.
