How the Best Hair Toppers Help People with Thinning Hair
Have you noticed thinning hair on the top of your head? Are you feeling stressed about it?
If so, it's time to consider a hair topper.
Hair toppers go by many names including wiglets, hairpieces and hair enhancers. Each one has a different method of attaching to your existing hair to cover areas of hair loss.
But when applied correctly, the best hair toppers seamlessly blend with your own hair to make it look like you have a full head of hair again.
What Are the Best Hair Toppers?
It depends on what you're looking to cover.
For example, if you need coverage at your front hairline, then you'll want to use clip-in bangs and fringe hairpieces. You'll get a customized bang that's comfortable and looks completely natural, while quickly covering up an uneven hairline.
If you need seamless coverage along your part area, however, your best bet will be clip-in top pieces with a small base. You'll gain more fullness at the part, while the small base keeps the topper feeling lightweight and comfortable.
For those who need coverage on the entire top area, the recommendation is clip-in top pieces with a large base. These pieces often replace the need for a full wig. And those with a lace front create the look of an authentic hairline.
Which Will You Need?
You have to first figure out how much area needs to be covered.
Take a soft measuring tape and record the measurements of the widest points from front to back and side to side across the area(s) where you're experiencing hair loss.
Then add one inch to each measurement, allowing for half an inch of hair on each side or end of the base onto which you will clip the topper.
Once you have your measurements, take note of where you're losing your hair. This will help you determine the base that will be right for you.
Different Bases for Different Needs
Along with different sizes and shapes, there are two basic types of bases:
The classic base features rows or wefts of hair. In many cases, your own hair is pulled in between the wefts to integrate it into the hairpiece.
This base is a bit more involved. It's formed by hand tying each individual hair to a soft mesh material. This gives the appearance of real hair growing from the scalp.
Whether you choose classic or monofilament will be up to you. For example, if your hair is thinning at the crown, you might prefer a wider base with a classic style construction.
On the other hand, if your hair is thinning mainly at the part, a long and skinny base with a monofilament construction might be your preference.
An expert can help you choose the appropriate hair topper for your situation.
Is It Difficult to Use?
You simply open all clips on the underside of the topper, position the front edge approximately 1-2 inches from the front of your hairline, cover the area of hair loss, and secure the front clip.
Then place light pressure over the top of it and run your fingers over the length of the base to secure the back clip(s). You need only to keep the base pulled tight across the top as you secure any side clips.
From there, you simply style hair as desired.
