When a woman begins to experience hair loss on any level, questions begin to surface without knowing who to turn to. Hair loss can be stressful enough without the challenge of navigating through jargon and medical terminology. Before you begin to panic over your hair loss or wigs, consider the following commonly asked questions surrounding the subject.
If you are faced with the reality of having to wear a wig because of hair loss, you may feel depressed and overwhelmed. Women take pride in their hair, so having it lost to be replaced with a wig can be a difficult reality to face. However, with a positive outlook and the right kind of wig, this new reality can be easy to get used to. If that isn’t enough encouragement, maybe these fun wig facts can help!
When you are faced with hair loss, a wig may seem like a daunting accessory to soon wear. As soon as a woman is told that she will lose her hair, she immediately thinks of a wig, and that can be very overwhelming. However, a wig isn’t the only answer when dealing with hair loss. Women also have the option of hair toppers and partial pieces when facing hair loss.
Toppers and partial pieces are designed to help with partial hair loss and thinning hair. Depending on the severity of your hair loss will depend on what piece you should consider. The type of piece you choose should be based on where your hair loss or thinning is taking place and how dense the rest of your hair is. The main idea with using these options is to have the hair piece blend with your already existing hair. Here are some tips when choosing your toppers and partial pieces:
- Clip in Bangs- If your hair loss and thinning is taking place at the front of your hairline, consider clip in bangs. This will make your hairline appear more even and full.
- Small Base Toppers- If you begin to notice your hair thinning around the part of your hair, choose a small base topper or hair piece. This creates a fuller look on top while being light to wear.
- Large Base Toppers- If the hair loss and thinning is covering a larger portion of your top rather than just the part, consider a large base topper or piece. This will cover a larger area on top while still not being as overwhelming and heavy as a wig.
At Wigs and Hair Solutions, we work with our clients to style a partial hair piece or topper. We will help you choose which topper or piece will blend best with your current hair and make you feel the least self-conscious. Toppers and hair pieces can be made as synthetic and with human hair. If you are faced with hair loss, but don’t feel ready for a full wig, consult Wigs and Hair Solutions about partial pieces and toppers.
