Dear Friends,
I am looking for a hair piece... also known as a "toupé". I need it to cover my semi-bald head.

Go ahead, laugh if you want to. But I need it for work.

Does anyone know a shop that does this? I saw the last part of a tv show that featured a male wig shop but didn't get the name...

Can you kind gentlemen at JakChat help?

Thanks, JC

Go to Piss Salon (Jl. Jaksa #17) He/they will sort you right out.

thinking about this, i once did some research for a client on hair pieces for the export market. most are actually made in bali and west java, and mainly for the traditional hairpieces used in japan and other parts of east asia. don't know about the quality, though.

generally speaking, the only merkins left in jakarta are good merkins. all the crappy merkins ran away in 98.

Pop around to Jalan Keselamatan No.4 and unblock my shower drain. Enough high quality hair and gooey muck there for several self-adhesive merkins.

You really need to re-watch some of the masterpieces of Indonesian cinema, such as Budi Han's classic film Artis Ganti Baju (filmed in 1997, released in 2002) and the groundbreaking Kasting Sabun Mandi (2002). Plenty of shaved celebs and wannabe celebs. Not to mention that Agnes Monica is also said to be "tanpa bulu" (doesn't have a Westerner or summat).

ah yes, i remember that. hot on the heals of Mahasiswi Bandung.

many indonesian girls are in this state naturally, without shaving or anything. i base this observation on the basis of a statistically significant sample i collected over a period of years.

There's more than one way to skin a cat, but your assertion will hopefully prompt a barrage of embarrassing denials and admissions of heavy quim trimming.

I am sure there was almost a complete thread on this subject last year... some interesting comments as I recall!

On the subject of puerile shaving shenanigans, I was rather hoping you'd refrain from explaining the Abe Lincoln again. Meanwhile, Kuku's "statistically significant sample" of tonsured twats certainly disproves Pos Kota's occasional assertion that long-term Australian expats in Indonesia are kiddy fiddlers.

The Abe Lincoln was furthest thing from my mind. I can also admit that research has proven the Brazilian Trend has not, as yet, reached China.

You'll notice that I'm currently sporting a self-inflicted Abe Lincoln. I think all stylish men are wearing them nowadays.
