Why should a hair system be so embarrassing?

Im considering getting a hair system in the near future and currently trying to justify it to myself...
On the face of it hair systems or 'wigs' are widely seen as a bit of a joke but is wearing a hair piece really any different than wearing contact lenses or veneers on your teeth not to mention any form of plastic surgery?

I just treat it as wearing another piece of clothing.
If it looks good people dont care. The only place you`ll be ridiculed for it is in the forums.

Why should stuffing socks into your sleeves to make it appear as though you have big biceps be embarassing?

You are taking something that isn't part of your body and glueing it onto yourself to pass it off as part of your body. You don't find anything strange or weird about that?

Only use wigs if you are married or have a long term relationship. No girl wants to find out you are bald after you are married.

Wigs, unfortunetaly are not socialy acceptable. Dont think that the only place you will be laughed at about a wig is a forum.

This is how things are, some things are acceptable other are not. As worldofwarcraft said people will make fun of a girl stuffing socks in her bra to look like she has big boobs. No one will make fun of someone wearing contact lenses, but they will make fun of someone that wears colored contact lenses to appear like he has beautifull eyes.

The only place you wont be ridiculed for it is in front of your face, hence why most of the rug wearers on hair forums think that their plan is going smoothly..

I'm not keen personally, I would rather buzz it especially as buzzing it is so commonplace these days.

Most people I talk to though still don't realise Elton Johns wears a system. They all think he had successful transplant 20-30 years ago instead of the disaster we know he had and wears a system to cover it.

With his money though its impossible to see its a system.

There must be many other actors etc that wear a system and look good and we dont know because they spend a fortune maintaining.

What a bloody hassle to put up with though for a lifetime..

Then I'll happily apologise, do you wear one? My main objective was to desuade someone from going down this route as think it could be psychologically damaging to have to live such a big lie on a daily basis, moreso than being bald.

I don't. My trichologist swears by them now they are so good.

Personally its not a route I want to go down but understand those that do. I would Rather buzz it. I'm hoping the meds will do enough as you are..eventually.

They work for some people and I think the phobia about systems is less as is balding in general as its so commonplace.

God..hurry up HM...drugs, systems, side effects its all a pain in the a**..

I thought Travolta's was a hairline transplant but only guessing..you sure its a system?

Jimmy White I gues is not a surprise as he thinned badly years ago but you cannot tell. (he used to advertise that bald spot spray)

can anyone put up a pic of them with their system? woudn't mind seeing how good they look

i don't see anything wrong with wearing a hair system. if it looks good and restores your confidence then go for it. i teach two kids at the hospital that wear systems, one is 11 and the other is 14 and if no one told me, i would assume that was their natural hair.
