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

Hair toppers are versatile hair pieces that come in many different styles, shapes, and sizes. While some hair toppers offer full coverage, others cover specific areas of the head to achieve the desired effect. If you’ve decided that you could benefit from a hair topper, it’s time to determine which one is best for you.

Determine Your Hair Loss  

Before you begin shopping for a hair topper, it’s important to determine your specific type of hair loss. Every woman experiences a different level of hair loss, and the amount of hair you have lost could depend on the stages of your hair loss. Whether you’re in the beginning stages of hair loss or the advanced stages, ensure that you’re choosing a topper that’s right for you.

Use a soft measuring tape to record the width and length of your bald spots or thin areas. Record each measurement and add at least a half inch to each side to allow for a base clip to attach.

Select a Base

The base of your hair topper also depends on your hair loss. For example, if the majority of your thinning begins at the part, you need a base with a monofilament construction. If your hair loss begins at the crown of your head, you need a wide base with a classic style construction.

Choose Your Style!

Hair toppers are created to blend in with your existing hair, so it’s best to select a color that matches your natural hue. In regards to length, ensure that you choose a topper that is shorter or equal length of your current style.
