Whether you’re suffering from thinning hair or preparing for severe hair loss, selecting the right wig can be a difficult task. Not only is it important to choose a hairpiece that provides ample coverage, but it must also be comfortable enough for a woman to wear confidently. The question is whether you should opt for a full wig or a hair topper (partial wig).

Wigs vs. Hair Toppers

Whereas a wig provides total head coverage, hair toppers provide coverage for one targeted area. Hair toppers clip into the existing hair, while wigs are work with a wig cap or overtop a grip. Both wigs and hair toppers can be made with synthetic or human hair, and both are available in a variety of colors and styles.

The Benefits of Wigs

Wigs are the best choice for women experiencing total hair loss. Whether hair loss stems from chemotherapy, alopecia, or hereditary reasons, wigs allow women to feel beautiful and confident every day. Wigs are generally low maintenance and women who wear them remark on the amount of time they save getting ready each morning.

The Benefits of Hair Toppers

Hair toppers are a great option for women experiencing partial hair loss or thinning hair. They can be worn with the existing hair, and even styled in a bun or ponytail. Since hair toppers are incorporated into the natural hair, they tend to offer a natural appearance. Hair toppers also come in a variety of different styles so you can pick and choose the size depending on your specific hair loss.

Which Should I Choose?

Are you experiencing partial or gradual hair loss? Do you want to add length and volume to your natural hair? If so, hair toppers are a wonderful solution. If you’re experiencing total hair loss, consider trying a wig on for size to achieve overall coverage! Consult an expert for more tips and suggestions.
