A Hair Topper, also called a "wiglet" or "hair enhancer", is a natural-looking hair piece that you can clip or secure on your head to blend in with your own hair. Toppers are good for coverage on one targeted area of the head. They are smaller and lighter than wigs and you don't have to wear a wig cap or hide your existing hair when you wear them. A Hair Topper can be an easy & perfect solution for ladies suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. Hair Toppers will add volume and coverage at the top of the head where hair extensions can't reach!
Hair Toppers come in different base types, shapes and sizes, which are designed to disguise hair loss or thinning hair at various stages and different areas of the scalp. Some of them can offer more coverage over the crown or top area, while others may help conceal the hair loss in the front.

I purchased my first human hair silk topper and absolutely love it! This is the Bella in 12". I like it much better being parted with the side bang look rather then the straight part that I was kind of hoping for. I as well had the issue where it didn't lay flat on my head but when I parted it off to the side it then gives it that volumized look. Other then that just added some curls and that was it.
"I've been wearing helper hair for a little over a year now and, as a result, my hair feels healthier than it has in years! My stylist noticed and we think it's because I'm washing less often and no longer heat styling my bio hair. :) Don't get me wrong, it's still thin as ever, but I'm now wearing my hair longer than I used to because it's healthier. I was recently ordering another topper (I know, I know...I gotta stop at some point...just not yet!)"
"Between the ER and the firehouse, my hair is always pulled back so no one really knows how horrible it truly is. But with my husband's work Holiday Party coming up, I wanted to look like a girl. So, I took my second Claire Remy to my stylist (magician) who cut her into this gorgeous bob. I sent a snap to my husband who told me (for the first time in our relationship) that I looked "amazing"! No words can describe how pretty I feel — and how grateful."
"Obviously right out of the box, HOPE TOPPER in Almond Frost. This Uniwig, synthetic topper looks and feels better, or at least as good as ANY human Hair Topper I've worn over the past 15 years! She needs a little trim but she's FABULOUS!"
Choosing the proper topper base size is not only going to make your hair piece look more natural, but also ensure that you are not pulling on hair causing further hair loss. The base size depends on your coverage needs.
First, you should measure the size of the area on your head you want to cover.
Then you can choose a topper on our website with the base of a little bit larger size. Be sure to factor in clip attachments on base. There must be a sufficient amount of hair to attach clip to. Adhesive is a secondary option.
If you're wearing a hair topper as a daily protective style, you want your piece to look as natural as possible. But most people don't have a celebrity stylist on call to create a flawless fit.

Toppers with lace front means there is a pieces of lace allocating in the front of the topper. The lace is the secret weapon to a flawless undetectable hairline. When worn properly the end result is an undetectable hairline giving the illusion that the hair is actually growing out of your own head.

Hair density refers to how thick the hair is. The hair density that you order is really based on personal choice and what looks best on you. Most women achieve a natural appearance with light to medium or medium density; however your choice will depend on your styling preferences and individual profile.
It is very crucial to know the density of your naturally growing hair in order to effectively choose a hair system flawlessly matching your own one.
Age is another crucial factor helping you to choose the correct hair density. To be more specific; say you are a young man then thicker (medium) type of hair density will suit you more than an old man who will look better in lighter hair density.
Hair styles contribute in giving your hair a natural and real look. Thick pattern of hair shall suit better to a layered hair style. One can go for adding bouncy curls to a thin hair density to make it look fuller and thicker
Each topper, be that human hair or synthetic, should be well taken care.

You may notice that your alternative hair piece, be that a wig or a topper, has shorter hair that may look like breakage. In most cases, this is not breakage and your wig is absolutely healthy. What you are seeing is something that is called a "hair return". Watch this video from our education experts to learn what a return is.
We do not recommend this. It can put too much stress on the hair and create unmanageable tangles. Also, pool chemicals and salt can damage the hair and affect color.
The color hair samples is strongly recommended to be purchased together with human hair products when you are unsure of the color.
