Although an old-fashioned word, toupee is still being used today. A man’s hairpiece, a toupee (also known as a partial hair system) provides partial coverage of the head to hide “male pattern baldness” or bald spots. A man’s hair system can be purchased as a stock piece or customized. It is always styled just for you, whether it is stock or custom-made.

Remember that your lifestyle, hair loss situation, durability of the hairpiece, and other key factors will play a role in which hair system is right for you. Our team of professional trained hair loss experts will work tirelessly with you to make the right decision that is best for your specific hair loss situation.

Partials and toupees


A full hair system covers the entire head. Full hair systems are typically required for one of two reasons. The first reason being further thinning of the hair resulting in less hair that will successfully match a partial hairpiece. The other reason is for the ease and simplicity of a full piece whether this is due to hair loss or convenience.

Wearing a full hair system has many advantages over a partial piece:

  • No blending issues
  • No color match issues
  • Conveniently covers most of the hair
  • No haircuts
  • No dyeing required to match natural hair color

A full hairpiece can be purchased as a stock piece or customized to match your existing hair.


Dealing with hair loss or scalp irritation are emotional events, and can lead to social concerns and confidence issues. The best time to take action is immediately. As soon as you start to notice a change in your hair or scalp you should seek out a Trichologist or Dermatologist.

Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp and overlaps both the medical and cosmetic areas that are not normally covered by either a doctor or hairstylist. A Trichologist can help you address many concerns about your hair and scalp treatment.
