Using Hairpieces for Thinning Hair and Hair Loss
Partial Hair Loss, Balding and Thinning Hair
Whether you are looking for a hair topper because you have thinning hair, partial hair loss, or just want to add volume, the Experts at Wigs.com can help you choose the perfect topper for you from the wide variety of pieces we carry. Hair toppers are a great wig alternative and an ideal hair solution. So, let’s start with what are hair toppers...
What Are Hair Toppers?
Hair Toppers are ideal for coverage over isolated areas of the front, top, or sides of the head. They will give the appearance of thicker, fuller hair while blending in with your own hair. and Attached with pressure sensitive clips that simply snap into place, these clip-in pieces are designed to give you extra coverage, right where you want it. Hair toppers come in different base constructions, such as monofilament toppers, ranging from small coverage to large coverage - the larger the base, the more coverage it provides. There are also options for hair toppers with bangs and fringe!
Let's Talk Coverage
Hair toppers categorized into the "A Little Coverage" category have bases that measure from 1" to 4" in width. These top pieces may be small but they are very lightweight & offer incredible results! A Little Coverage toppers are perfect for covering up pesky root growth or thinning at the part and will provide seamless coverage in this area.
Expert Tip: Look for a hair topper with a monofilament feature. These toppers will have a slightly thinner base than a traditional top piece, so it will be unbelievably difficult to detect.
Color match is important for these small base toppers because more of your hair will be showing than larger base toppers. If you need a little more coverage than your part area, we recommend browsing "A Little More Coverage".
Hair toppers in the "A Little More Coverage" category have bases that measure from 4" - 6" base in width. Because of the wider base of these toppers, you can wear them at the front, top, or crown area.
Hair toppers in the "A Lot More Coverage" category do just that... add maximum coverage! These toppers will provide volume and coverage from front to back with base widths ranging from 6" to 10". Depending on your preferences, these hair toppers could replace the need for a full wig because of their larger base dimensions. If you’re wanting all over top coverage, these hair toppers are for you! If you need additional coverage that extends beyond the top area, we recommend a full wig.
