How to Measure For Toppers

Measuring for a topper is simple! 


1. Simply Grab a soft measuring tape and measure side to side. This will be the width.


2. Next, measure from the front of your hairline to the back of the thinning. This will be the length.


Got it? Great! This will be the measurement for the area you need to cover. However, this is not the measurement for your topper. It is essential that you add at least an inch to both the width and length. This way, you can ensure that your topper will be clipped onto healthy strong hair.
