Today's Lesson
WIG / TOUPEE   かつら/(男性用部分)かつら


  • A wig is a head covering made of natural or artificial (= not natural) hair, usually worn to cover less attractive hair or by someone who is balding.

    A toupee is a wig for men, used to cover only the part of the head that is bald.
  • wig は、人毛、または人工毛で作られた頭にかぶるもの、つまり、かつらのことです。たいてい、見ばえの悪さを隠したり、はげつつある人がかぶったりします。

    toupee は、はげた部分を隠すための男性用部分かつらのことです。
