For all the talk about balding around here, does anyone have a toupee or other hair system (extensions?)? Used one? Considered one?

What happened?

Just curious, the whole stem cell thing might not pan out in the next 10 years and I don't know how I'll feel out shaving it all off if I ever face the decision.

Wearing a toupee is like eating TV Dinners. It is a sign of someone simply giving up whatever pride they might have one time possessed. (Proudly posted by a dude with about 298 hairs on top of his head.)

If I'm lucky I'll look like my grandfather who kept it short as it gracefully thinned.

If I'm not lucky, I'll buzz it off.

No. I'm in my thirties, and I still have such a thick head of hair that my barber thins out my hair with the special serrated device so that it doesn't get out of control. But I am going gray early, which is sometimes cool, and sometimes not soo cool....

I've seen some nice hair pieces that look real and pretty good. Nothing like the helmet heads of the past.

Well, if you go from balding/bald to full head of hair there might be a problem.
