What is a hair topper? All you need to know

Whether you’re an old hand at dealing with hair loss or a beginner just starting to learn how to handle it, you’ve probably heard of the terms: ‘half wig’, ‘wiglet’, and ‘hair topper’. All three terms refer to the same thing: the ‘hair replacement topper’.

 

Hair toppers are a popular option for handling hair thinning or hair loss in women. While they cannot disguise complete baldness, they are more than capable of hiding bald spots, receding hairline, or partial hair loss.

 

If you’re unfamiliar with these types of hair pieces, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered because, in this article, we’ll go into full detail about what hair toppers are, how to use them, and many other questions you’re wondering about. Let’s get started.

 

What is a hair topper?

Hair toppers are hair pieces meant to add volume to your natural hair. Unlike wigs which are made to completely replace your hair, hair toppers are attached to the top of the head to give your existing hair a more voluminous feel.

 

As such, they are perfect for hiding bald spots and thinning hair while avoiding the inconveniences that come with donning a traditional wig.

 

How do hair toppers work?

Hair toppers are made of monofilament caps with hand-sewn hair strands attached to them. These hair pieces can be worn by using clips, hair tapes, or even adhesives to attach them to the head. Wearing hair toppers makes your hair bulkier and more healthy-looking.

 

What are hair toppers used for?

Hair toppers are designed to add volume to your existing hair. For this reason, they are a great option for those with thinning hair or partial hair loss due to stress, chemotherapy, alopecia, etc. That said, they cannot be used not for complete hair loss.

 

Hair toppers can also be worn over healthy hair just to make it look fuller. 

 

What are the types of hair toppers?

Hair toppers are classified based on two major factors:

Type of hair fiber

  1. Human hair toppers

Human hair toppers are made of natural hair fiber sewn into the base of the topper. They are very realistic, though they are somewhat pricey.

 

  1. Synthetic hair toppers

Synthetic hair toppers have hair strands made of synthetic hair fibers. They are generally more affordable than their human hair counterparts.

 

A special type of synthetic hair topper is the heat-friendly synthetic hair topper. They are designed to withstand treatment from heat-styling tools.

 

Type of base construction

Monofilament

Monofilament hair toppers use wig caps made of fine mesh with individual hairs tied to it. They are great if you want multidirectional parting as they provide a realistic-looking crown.

 

Lace

Hair toppers with lace bases have individual hair tied to a lace material. Lace front hair toppers give you a hairline that appears natural.

 

Silk top

This is the most realistic hair topper as it makes hair appear as if it is growing from the scalp.

 

Skin

This base looks and feels like your skin.

 

Conclusion

Hair toppers are a very convenient solution for hair-related problems like hair thinning or hair loss. If after this article, you decide to go with hair toppers, do check out our selection of hair toppers for high-quality options.
