Hair Toppers FAQ

What to know before buying a hair topper?

Here are a five things you should know before buying a hair topper: 

  • Choosing a fiber / texture. You’ll need to choose a hair texture and fiber that closely resembles your bio hair for a more seamless blend. Fiber selection is determined by your budget and whether you want to style the hair topper.

  • Selecting the Base Material that Suits Your Preference. The base of the hair topper is the part that touches your scalp and has the hair attached to. Bases can be made with different materials (monofilament, lace, wefted, etc) with each one having their own advantage in terms of realism, comfort, and breathability.

  • Picking the Right Size. Hair toppers can come in a variety of sizes and coverage areas. It’s important that you measure the area your hair topper will attach to in order to determine the right size.

  • Choosing Hair Color. When picking out a hair topper, try to find one that matches your natural hair color as closely as possible. It’s okay if the fiber is slightly lighter or darker because the hair topper will still be able to blend in with your bio hair. Plus, the slight color variance will help add dimension.

  • Selecting the Right Hair Length. Hair toppers come in different lengths and styles. We recommend that you choose a hair topper with a length that’s similar to your bio hair. In order to get an idea of what length you should start with, be sure to measure from the crown of your head to the longest part of your hair.

Are hair toppers any good?

Hair toppers are a great solution if you’re looking to get more voluminous hair or conceal hair loss/thinning hair. Hair toppers can come in a wide range of hair fibers, styles, lengths, and bases. Plus, they are easy to attach to your head, so you can get flawless hair in seconds!

What are the advantages and disadvantages of hair toppers?

Hair toppers offer great advantages:

  • Hair toppers come in all fiber types and hair lengths, so they can seamless blend into your hair. 

  • They are a fantastic solution for covering areas of thinning hair and hiding hair loss. Hair toppers also can provide more coverage to the front, crown, or the entire head, depending on the style.

  • They are easy to apply and do not require much styling. 

  • They can give your hair more volume. 

A disadvantage to wearing hair toppers is they can potentially cause traction alopecia. However, this only happens if you are wearing the incorrect size, not using the correct application method, or improperly removing your hair topper.

How do hair toppers stay on?

A hair topper needs at least 1” of hair to clip onto. This hair should be thick enough for the clip to attach to, so there isn't a risk of the clip falling out and causing additional hair loss. Make sure the topper is wider than the full area of hair loss to get the best results! 

What is the most realistic hair topper?

The most realistic hair topper relies on your preference and comfort level since hair toppers come in a variety of bases, hair fibers, and lengths. 

  • For a more natural look, check out bases that are made with monofilament, are hand tied, and have a lace front.

  • Hair toppers are either made with human hair or synthetic fiber. Depending on the quality, either hair type can blend really well into your natural hair. It’s important to find a color that matches your bio hair. Otherwise, the colors may not mix well together, losing the voluminous look.
