That photo of you holding the wine glass is the best look - hair up but not too radical and no frayed ends.

You don't want too much of a good thing like this guy.

Listen to Spanker's wisdom. Yes it is tempting to have the attention grabbing cool hair, but you just need to tone it down some and bring less attention to your hair. Subtle is good when wearing a system. Maybe work out and bring attention to muscular arms or a six pack...and think of your hair as more of background feature that is no longer a downer feature.

Personally I'd say it looks just that bit "too good". At age 21 (some 20 years ago...) I had hair not far off that thickness and I used to get compliments all the time. But if you're wearing a piece then any comments/compliments will make you feel nervous and you'll be asking yourself why people are noticing your hair.

So the best thing is to tone it down.

It does look way too thick if you ask me. But I wonder - if you thin it down, say to 70% density, does it mean that the base layer will show?

BTW I don't wear a piece yet. I am still using fibres and concealers, even though I am way more bald than you! I should really get a piece ASAP though.

Maybe I should ask what density was used for the system and ask it be reduced. I never chose it myself (density). The company took a sample of my natural hair and that was it. I want a full head of hair but not for it to look wiggy and too thick!

I think a little lower density and you might be happier with it. Also it will thin out over time. You can have a stylist thin it with thinning shears to make it less dense. That will leave some small hairs sticking out the piece but no one will see it if you style right. Wearing is pretty cool in my opinion when you get some of the details that right. That being said you might notice the difference more than anyone else. I was a diffuse norwood three when I started wearing and 99 percent of people didn't bat an eye.

With the extent of your hairloss at your young age I would be hesitant to go down the HT route as it would be a long and stressful one for you. If you are fine wearing a wig then I think that is a great idea for you man, just find a really good one you like.
