A hairdresser has gone viral on TikTok by posting incredible videos of bald men being completely transformed with non-surgical hair replacements.
Phil Ring, 31, from Rhode Island, has become an online sensation with the clips, which show him giving bald men new hairpieces that look astonishingly realistic.
His before-and-after footage, which he posts on popular social media app TikTok under the username @phildoeshair, have amassed a whopping 200 million views and his modern-day toupées have stunned people across the internet.
Phil uses hairpieces made by Hairskeen on his male clients; unlike traditional toupees, which have to be removed every day, the non-surgical replacements last between two and six months.
The hairstylist – who has salons in Rhode Island and New York City – explained: ‘I think people get toupées confused with this because I see toupées more as a type of system that you take on and off every day.

‘But Hairskeens only need to be replaced every two to six months – sometimes even longer for guests that take extra great care of it.’
‘Also, toupees are notorious for being very visible, and super dense with hair. The Hairskeens that I use are durable but also invisible. They rarely ever shed and it’s such a high quality system.
The whole process takes up to three hours and whilst invasive hair transplant surgery can cost upwards of $8,600 (£7,000), Phil charges $850 (£650) for the first hair-replacement service. Re-attachment services afterwards vary between a modest $175 to $210 (£140 to £150).
Phil shares videos of his client’s hair transformation stories across his social media in order to remove the stigma from male hair replacement.

Speaking of the benefits of his job, Phil said: ‘It’s so rewarding when clients return and they are so pumped that they saw people that had no clue they were wearing a hair replacement.’ Pictured left, a client before, and right, after

He believes that male non-surgical hair replacements are on the cusp of being the next big hairdressing trend and says that for many of his male clients, these hair replacements are life-changing.
‘It’s so rewarding when clients return and they are so pumped that they saw people that had no clue they were wearing a hair replacement,’ explained Phil.
‘A lot of my guests jump back into the dating scene after getting Hair Systems and I think that says a lot for the confidence hair can bring to someone.
He continued: ‘I just want people to know that hair replacement is just on the verge of being the next big salon service and I hope with more stylists learning and brands showing up we can really innovate some new products.
‘If this video can help one person gain confidence or know there’s a solution for themselves or someone else, then everything I’ve done will be worth it.’
