Can you wear a toupee in a passport photo?

Question

In your passport photo, you can wear glasses, so can you wear a toupee? If not, would I have to remove it when showing my passport?

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Aaron
Qualification: Immigration officer
Answer: You are allowed to wear a toupee, if itís part of what you would normally wear. Some people are go bald after their passport photo is taken, so we often see bald men with passport photos where they have a full head of hair! They are never asked to take them off at passport control.
