Why have they become so popular?

Hair toppers have become popular for several reasons. Firstly, they offer natural-looking coverage that blends seamlessly with existing hair and add volume to thinning hair. Secondly, they are comfortable to wear and easy to maintain. Furthermore, they come in a variety of styles in both natural hair and synthetic hair, making them incredibly versatile and suitable for different needs.

What Do Hair Toppers Offer?

Hair toppers are hairpieces that sit on top of the head, covering areas of hair loss or providing volume to thinning hair. They come in different materials, such as lace front, monofilament, and hand-tied, which have different benefits. In addition, you can choose your own natural hair colour and in a variety of different lengths.

Lace fronts are ideal for those looking for a natural-looking topper as they have a sheer lace panel in the front that mimics the natural hairline. This means that the hairpiece blends seamlessly with your hair making it challenging to spot.

A Monofilament hair topper uses a fine mesh material that appears skin-like and allows for air circulation, making it both natural-looking and comfortable to wear.

A hand-tied hair topper is the most lightweight and natural-looking solution. They are incredibly delicate and light, giving the impression of real hair that moves like your own.

Do Hair Toppers come in Real Hair (Human Hair) and different types of base materials? 

There are two distinct types of topper, synthetic and human hair. An advantage of human hair in your hair colour, it will blend better with your existing hair and can be styled with heat tools.

Hair toppers can also have different base materials, such as mono tops, lace tops, silk bases, or polyurethane edges. These affect how the hair topper looks and feels on your scalp.

Some of the advantages and disadvantages of synthetic hair toppers are:

A Synthetic hair topper will be cheaper than a human hair topper, will be easier to maintain, and will not require much styling. It will hold its shape and style better than a human hair topper. You should choose one that is comfortable to wear and available in the length of your choice, and feel lightweight on your scalp.

However, a synthetic hair topper will not usually last as long as a human hair topper and is likely to wear out fasterThey may have a fake shine that does not match your hair and cannot be styled with heat tools or dyed a different colour.

Are Hair Toppers available in a range of Natural Hair Colours?

Yes, hair toppers are available in a wide range of natural hair colours. You can find one to match your hair or choose a different colour to suit your preference. Some have highlights or lowlights for a more versatile look.

However, if you think you may ever wish to change the colour of your hair topper, you should choose human hair rather than synthetic hair as it cannot be dyed.
