What is a hair topper?
Hair topper, also known as “wiglet” or “top piece”, in fact, is a small version of a wig. Hair toppers are definitely the best solution for partial hair loss since it only covers a portion of your head. For those who are suffering from a mild “widow’s peak”, then a topper that covers the top of your head is a suitable choice. There are also different types of hair toppers that can conceal the hair sides or hair back loss.

Hair toppers are also functioned as hair extensions as they can enhance the density of your hair and make it look thicker and more natural.
Toppers vary in size, depending on the coverage you need. There are toppers that can only cover the top section of your head but there also are toppers that can almost cover up your whole head. The size is various but the basic construct is the same. The structure of a hair topper consists of two-part: The lace base and the hair part. In which, the hair will be hand-knotted onto the lace strand by strand. The comfort, natural and durability of a hair topper will be depended on the quality of lace and the hair sewn in it, thus you should consider carefully when buying a hair topper.
The topper is attached to your head by clips, and your natural hair will be covered underneath to supplement the hair on the topper, thus your hair will look thicker. This method enhances your hair thickness from the outside, not like other extensions method adding the thickness for hair from the inside without directly showing up. That’s why this kind of hair extensions is a great solution for ladies with gradual hair loss or bald spots but not a good solution for those with total hair loss.
Pros and cons of Hair Toppers
As was said above, hair topper offers partial coverage, thus they are absolutely spent on those with gradual hair loss, thinning hair or bald spots. Most people, if not look carefully, will not recognize that you’re wearing a hair topper as it tends to look quite natural. Toppers are made of less hair and only cover a small part of your head without covering all your scalp, thus avoiding the scalp getting too warm that can lead to hair greasy, especially in the hot summer days. Hair toppers are typically lightweight and can be tied with your natural hair into a ponytail. And one more thing that makes hair toppers are preferred by many ladies is that in most cases, they are more frugal than full head wigs.
Toppers are not the best option for those with complete hair loss due to alopecia, chemo or other medical causes. Moreover, the clips of a hair topper can be too uncomfortable for people with thinning spots or sensitive scalps, and using unguaranteed clips can damage the remaining hair. To perfectly blend with your head, the topper used needs to exactly match the color and texture of your own hair for a natural look. And it may take you a bit of time to style your own hair as wearing a topper can’t cover your whole head.
As you can see, the pros and cons or hair toppers are pretty well balanced. Depending on your own hair loss condition, hopefully, you can make a decision that best suits yourself. In case you’ve struggled with total hair loss then it’s time for finding other hair enhancement methods such as tape-ins, wefts, or wigs.
