I have premature male pattern baldness and i've tried just about every medication and lifestyle modification to reverse it but it's resistant. The only option I have now for a full head of hair is a wig, and it's not expensive either.
I've always felt like I'd be a phony if I wore a wig, but hey, don't girls wear mascara, eyeliner, contact lens etc etc?

I'm going to be honest, I'd think it was odd. Baldness isn't terrible. A lot of guys go bald. My dad started going bald when he was 19, my brother, who is 21, is currently going bald. It happens. Embrace the bald! I don't think mascara or contact lenses are the same as a wig. For one thing, unless you're talking about color contacts, tons of people wear contacts for sight purposes. It's not faking anything, it's just not wanting the hassle of glasses some days. I can't stand glasses, they hurt my nose. You can usually tell if a girl is wearing mascara, it's not THAT big a change, they aren't really hiding anything. However, I think if you wear a wig, you're hiding a lot, in my mind. Unless you're up front and say that you're wearing a wig. I would compare it to girls wearing foundation and cover up, you don't actually see what's under it. I don't wear foundation because it seems so fake to me, I'm not perfect so I won't cover everything up and act perfect only to take it off and then people having no idea who I am because they've never seen my actual face. That's what a guy wearing a wig just because he's going a bit bald would be like to me. If there was a sickness of some sort that caused the baldness, I think that's a different story. But just plain bald just cause? It seems wrong for a guy to wear a wig. But that's just my opinion.0
