A topper is different from a wig because it covers only the top of your head, making it ideal for thinning hair at the crown of the head. They come in different sizes, lengths and thicknesses and are made of human hair or synthetic fibers. All are designed to seamlessly blend with your own hair. Here are some things you need to know when choosing a topper.

Size. Toppers come in different sizes to cover different areas of hair loss. The thin area needs to be measured to allow sufficient hair to attach it to.

Select type, color and length. Because a topper is meant to blend in with your existing hair, many prefer heat friendly synthetic or human hair toppers. They allow you to create texture with heated styling tools that closely resembles your own hair. You want to match your existing hair color as closely as possible. Short hairstyles use toppers that match the length of their style from root to end, while longer hairstyles use toppers that range in length from short to long depending on whether or not their hair is layered.

Method of cut in. You will need a professional wig stylist or hairdresser to blend the bio hair with the topper. There are different attachment methods depending on the individual hair.

Care for your topper like you would a wig. Stop in to the Wig Gallery to day or make an appointment and we can help you select the perfect topper for your hair loss needs.
