What is Toupee?

Updated: Oct 9, 2019




TOUPEE


A toupee is a hair piece that is used to cover the top part of a person’s head. Also known as “hair topper”, it can be used to give volume or cover a problem area, like thinning hair or a bald spot.


It originated from the French word “tuft” meaning top or highest point. They first called toupee a “tuft of hair or forelock.” It was originally used as fashionable items, or as a part of their theatrical attire.


Today, it can also be used to amp your fashion, but mostly used as a hair solution for people with thinning hair problems.
