There is alopecia adnata, which signifies that some people are born bald. Then we have alopecia senilis, implying that a favored few live long enough to achieve it.

  6. The wig dresser combs out the toupee to see that every hair looks like the real thing.
  7. The postman brings the toupee and Milton rushes to a mirror to try on his new hair.
