Real-looking Fake Beards, Moustaches and Eyebrows

How to Create Realistic Fake Beards, Moustaches and Eyebrows

Creating real-looking fake beards, moustaches or eyebrows is not as hard you think. While using real human hair provides the best results, it is much more expensive than using crepe wool hair.  Crepe wool hair, on the other hand, can be used to create virtually any type of facial hair.  You can create convincing beards, moustaches, sideburns and eyebrows.

About Crepe Wool Hair

Crepe wool hair typically comes in woven strips and is curly. Ours is normally sold in 7 inch lengths, but you can also purchase 36 inch lengths. You can straighten it using an iron. Our crepe wool hair is available in 12 different colors.  A beard will look fake if only a single color is used.  Be sure to mix together at least two colors.

TIP:  Since hair is never a single color, we recommend blending at least two colors for a much more realistic look.

For the best results, glue the crepe wool hair in layers. As you add layers, be sure to orient the hair in the direction that it naturally grows. We recommend you use Graftobian spirit gum adhesive to glue the hair in place.  After you apply the spirit gum, wait a few seconds, then gently tap the glue to “kick it off”.  It will become tacky and you’ll be able to apply the hair. To ensure the the hair sticks, use a rolled terry cloth towel to firmly press the hair into place. Trim the hair with scissors.

Why is Graftobian Spirit Gum Better?

Our spirit gum lasts longer. When you “tap” our glue, it becomes tacky and stays that way longer than other brands.
