What is A Hair Topper?


Staff member
Designed to conceal hair loss at various stages and different areas of the scalp, hair toppers come in many shapes and sizes. Some offer more coverage on the top, while others aim to cover the sides or back of the head. Some are even specifically designed for the sole purpose of adding volume to thin or fine hair.

One thing to keep in mind when shopping for a wiglet is that there is no one size fits all solution. Each hairpiece is meticulously designed to offer coverage where you need it and to blend in with your existing hair.


With toppers or wiglets, you are able to uniquely address your partial hair loss needs. Multiple hairpieces can be worn to cover more than one area, making them a great alternative to a full wig for women with thinning hair. When choosing a hair topper or wiglet, you will want to note the base style and size, the hair length, hair type and color. This will help determine which topper style is right for you.

Who Needs a Hair Topper?
Anyone with hair loss who wishes to cover up thinning areas or baldness on the scalp may desire a hair topper. This type of hair loss can occur as a result of aging, alopecia, certain medications (like chemo), stress, trichotillomania and many other conditions.

If you feel that your hair is lacking volume, a topper can not only help disguise areas of hair loss, but add the look of fullness to your existing hair as well. Not everyone who wears a topper has hair loss. Some women wear toppers to balance out lengthy extensions by adding more hair to the top of the head with a hairpiece.
