My parents seem like they can spot a rug at a heartbeat.

I can't tell fake hair from fake grass. Are there any good signs? Am I just too young to know what they look like?

Does John Bolton wear one (his mustache is a way different color than hair)?

I don't think you can go by the color of his mustache compared to his hair. My husband has a red mustache and noticeably brown hair. My brother has a brown mustache with two huge red sections flanking the brown, with dark brown/almost black hair.

Sometimes they're really noticeable but not always. If their hair never seems to grow, that's usually the first clue.

The best toupee in the world looks worse than the worst haircut in the world.

When in doubt, grab a handfull and try to yank it off.

Same way you determine if a woman's breasts are real - touch it!

Dolly Parton wears wigs all the time too, but I can't actually tell.

I just dont have an eye for this stuff

Hair color can be a give away. If there are no/few grey hairs on the top of his head and many on the back and sides that could be a toupee.

The 'ol grab and pull usually works well for me

I noticed that you cant see the scalp on top because it's fake

real hair you can usually see some scalp through the hair when the sun shines through, also the hairline doesnt look natural and the fake hair color doesnt match the grey hair on the sides and neck

When it is brown on top and brown/gray on bottom.

Sombody needs to update the rug!

William Shatner has the best, you can still see scalp through the hair. Bad toups generally look like a solid hat of hair.

I don't know, but I just can.

You can see the difference in the hair where it meets with the "real hair". It's like they're wearing a helmet. And it's too perfect...and sometimes sits too low on the forehead.

I can spot them every single time.

Men..if you can read this...just let it go. Really. The natural look is so much sexier. I think bald men are VERY sexy. The combover just makes it worse. Go with what God gives you. Really.
