non-surgical procedure to help men who’ve lost their hair — be it through just balding or thinning, alopecia or cancer treatments.”
When men begin balding before their time, it can cause extreme sadness, worry, and even depression. Robert Jenkins, who started balding at 21, says he “had a lot of low self-esteem, I started to get depressed…I wouldn’t go to events. I would stay in the house because I was just embarrassed.” Jenkins went on to get his first installation after his wife encouraged him.
“This might seem a little bit or much dramatic, but I was honestly just grateful to God that we were able to find somebody that can bring that confidence back. Because I did not think that this would be possible at all.” Jenkins says. “I thought that my hair was gone forever, that I would never be attractive … This was extremely life-changing for me.” More of Jenkins’ story can be read here.
Honestly, it’s time to normalize man weaves! Men shouldn’t be scrutinized for how they want to appear! Man weaves build confidence. It allows the man who isn’t ready to let go of his hair to keep it and wear it as he wants. It’s freedom of expression and the space needed that allows him to be the man he wants to be!
Aging doesn’t have to mean balding
Jenkins decided balding wasn’t for him – like many other men. He didn’t want the toupee of yesterday, but the man weave that gets heads turning. The ones that take a 50-year-old man and make him look 30. The man weave that makes you go from fine to foine!

Men can create the look they want, the ones that make them, them! It’s a journey to losing hair, getting man weaves, and being their best selves.
