Friends, if ever there was a blog post that wrote itself, this is it. Which is good, because I'm tired.
Why, oh why, does any man in this day and age still wear a toupee? If Yul Brynner and Telly Savalas didn't make it OK to be openly bald decades ago, I present more contemporary evidence:
DING, DING, DING!
This is who can get away with a toupee: Film stars of yesterday who are (or were) simply too old to know better.
Camp icons like Liberace: rhinestones, rings, and rugs -- they go together.
Sadly, the late Tony Curtis didn't understand Rule #1 about toupees: if you must wear one, KEEP IT FLAT. Tony also violated Rule #2 -- toupee OR radical face lift, but not both.
In closing friends, three questions:
1) In your opinion, are there men who actually look better in a toupee than bald/balding? If so, who?
2) Do we only notice the bad toupees, thus leading to the assumption (mine anyway) that toupees are always obvious?
3) Have you ever loved a man with a toupee, and if so, did you ever try to talk him out of it?
Please help me, readers. I just don't get toupees!
