Hair Toppers vs. Wigs: Making the Right Choice

 

If you’re experiencing hair loss or thinning hair, you’re probably considering getting some hair pieces to maintain your natural look. These hairpieces often come as either hair toppers or wigs, and in most cases, you’re caught between choosing either one of them. But, how do you know which one is best for you?

It all comes down to your needs and personal preferences. What may work for others might not necessarily work for others and vice versa. Therefore, to make the best choice, you need to know as much as possible about the two options.

In this guide, we provide all you need to know about wigs and hair toppers to make an informed decision.

 

What is a topper?

Hair toppers are hair pieces clipped into your natural hair to add more volume to your hair or cover up small areas of hair loss or hair thinning. Their small volume makes them more breathable and less of a burden.

 

What is a wig?

Wigs are hair pieces that completely cover your head, hiding your natural hair beneath it. The total coverage they offer makes them perfect for extensive hair loss or baldness. Also, because your hair is totally covered, you are not restricted in the color, length, style, etc. of the wig you use.

 

Comparison between wigs and hair toppers

Coverage

Wigs provide coverage to the entire scalp as opposed to hair toppers which cover only a particular area. As such wigs are more suitable for cases of advanced hair loss whereas hair toppers are great for localized hair loss or the early stages of hair thinning.

Breathability

Wigs are heavier than hair toppers as they provide full coverage and contain more material. Hair toppers, on the other hand, are lightweight and very breathable which makes them great for those who desire a more natural experience.

Hair type

Both wigs and hair toppers have synthetic and human hair variants.

Styling

With wigs, your natural hair is hidden. You can, therefore, style your wigs any way you want as they don’t have to match your natural hair. Hair toppers, though, offer fewer styling options as they have to blend in with your natural hair.

Color

Wigs can come in any color, length, or shape, giving you the freedom to wear what you want as you don’t have to match it with your real hair. With hair toppers though, you have to pick a color that makes it undetectable when you wear it.

Installation

Wigs do not necessarily need your hair to secure them. They can be attached with straps, combs, or even adhesives to ensure proper placement. In comparison, hair toppers are attached with combs or clips to your biological hair, which makes it easy to wear and remove them.

Price

Generally, hair toppers are more affordable than wigs as they contain less hair than the latter.

 

Conclusion

Choosing between a hair topper and a wig depends on your situation. Generally, hair toppers are best for localized hair loss while wigs are great for advanced hair loss or total baldness. Consider the factors detailed above to make the best possible decision.
