What Are Hair Toppers?
Hair toppers (sometimes called half wigs or hairpieces) are becoming increasingly popular and changing people's lives by giving them more confidence in their hair. Women's hair toppers add coverage, volume, and length to different areas of your head instead of wearing full wigs.
Toppers are created by attaching or knotting hair strands into a lightweight cap clipped near the front of the head. Hair toppers for women give you a thick, volumized look as the top of that blends with your bio hair.
All Milano hair toppers are an excellent solution for brittle or thinning hair and come in 100% human hair.
When to Try a Hair Topper
Human hair toppers are suitable for those experiencing hair loss for any reason. Toppers are an excellent option for alopecia sufferers, those undergoing chemotherapy, or dealing with early to advanced-age hair loss.
Remember that human hair toppers for women are unsuitable for those experiencing complete hair loss as they do not offer the same amount of hair as a wig, and you must be able to blend your natural hair with the topper.
You can also try hair toppers if you’re not experiencing hair loss. Many wear them to add thickness and volume to their hair, transform their look for a special occasion, or just for fun.
Here are a few considerations when deciding between a human hair topper and a wig:
Hair toppers have less of a base than a wig, making them lighter, more comfortable, and easier to blend into your bio hair. Note that the size of the base will be determined by the area where the hair is thinning. If you're experiencing hair loss in the back, this may exclude you from being a candidate, as you will need this hair in order to blend into the hair toppers. However, this is the perfect option if you're thinning on the part, hairline, or areas of the crown.
Another consideration is how much time you want to spend on your hair. Women’s human hair toppers will require blending, and some may prefer the ease of putting on a wig.
However, a wig will be heavier than most hair toppers, making the lighter alternative an excellent choice for daily wear.
With hair toppers, women can try a wig look before committing to them permanently. Milano Collection also offers clip-in bangs that work well with wigs and toppers.
How to Use a Hair Topper
Putting on a human hair topper can be finished in less than five minutes. All you need is your hair topper, a teasing comb, a ponytail band, and a TopGrip. These are great tools to get your topper to blend effortlessly and sit comfortably on your head. Follow these steps to achieve a natural and voluminous look with your hair toppers:
Pull your hair into a low and loose ponytail, allowing you to place the TopGrip around the circumference of your head. You want to adjust the TopGrip's strap so that it sits firmly on your head but not so tight it causes a headache.
Now that the TopGrip is sized for your head, you'll remove it and attach the hair topper's clips to the TopGrip's ribbon.
Secure the TopGrip and the connected hair topper to your head. Once it's on, you can use the teasing comb to create a beautiful, seamless look that's not going anywhere.
