Discover how to choose a hair topper that’s right for you!

Snowflakes are formed when ice crystals accumulate and stick together, tumbling down from the sky in a spectacular display. Each snowflake falls through clouds of varying temperatures and moisture levels, and the result is something truly unique. Every snowflake is different depending on its path, just as every woman is distinct depending on her personal journey. One woman’s experience with hair loss is unlike any other, which is why there are so many different solutions to the condition.

What is a Hair Topper?

A wig is often the best solution for women experiencing rapid, dramatic hair loss. However, some women experience hair loss differently. Hair toppers (wiglets) are the best choice for women with hair thinning, bald spots, or other minor variations of hair loss. While a wig offers full coverage, a hair topper covers specific areas of the head. Hair toppers vary in size, shape, color, and style.

Define Your Hair Loss

Before you choose a hair topper, it’s important to determine the type of hair loss you’re experiencing. Are you in the beginning stages or the advanced stages of hair loss? How much hair do you lose per day? Answering these questions can help you come to a definitive answer.

Select Your Preferred Base

Defining your hair loss will help you choose the base of your hair topper. There are two main types of bases, and the best fit will depend on your natural hair. If you experience the majority of hair thinning at the part, a monofilament construction may be best. If your hair loss occurs at the crown of your head, choose a wide base with a classic style construction.  

Pick a Style

Hair toppers are designed to blend in with your natural hair to create a full, natural look. Choose a hair topper that blends well with your current color, or selects a color that compliments your natural locks. This is also an opportunity for you to try a new style! Go short, blonde, brunette, or blue!
