Definition : Prostheses designed to resemble the natural hair growing on the lower part or down the sides of a man's face (i.e., beard and sideburns, respectively) or above the upper lip (mustache). These prostheses typically consist of pieces of synthetic hair in a variety of styles, colors, and hair densities attached to a base that is usually glued on the appropriate area on the face.
