What Is A Hair Topper?

A hair topper is a crown extension that provides coverage and volume on the crown area. It is similar to the top part of a wig, but does not provide coverage for the entire head. Toppers are intended for those experiencing hair loss or thinning, or who would like to add volume on the top of the head.  Unlike a full wig, the natural hair is blended in with the hair on the topper.  There are many cap constructions and base sizes available for varying degrees of hair loss or coverage needs.

What Are The Clips For?

Hair toppers are attached to the head using pressure sensitive clips.  The clips, which have a comb-like appearance, open and close by pressing on them.  They contain “teeth” which slide into and grip onto your natural hair.

There is a learning curve when it comes to using the clips properly to minimize damage to your own hair and to ensure a comfortable fit.  You will need to ensure you have the right size topper for your area of loss to make sure you have enough hair to support the clips.
