HAIR TOPPER FAQ FOR CLIENTS
Here are some frequently asked questions about hair toppers along with their answers:
What is a hair topper?
A hair topper is a hairpiece designed to cover areas of thinning hair or baldness on the top of the head. It's typically clipped or attached to the existing hair, adding volume and coverage.
How is a hair topper different from a wig?
Unlike wigs that cover the entire head, hair toppers are smaller and designed to blend seamlessly with your natural hair. They target specific areas of thinning or balding, making them a great solution for localized hair loss.
How do I choose the right hair topper for me?
Consider factors like the base size, hair length, color, and texture. It's essential to choose a topper that matches your natural hair closely and complements your style.
How do I attach a hair topper?
Hair toppers can be attached using compression clips.
Can I style my hair with a topper on?
Yes, you can! Just like your natural hair, most hair toppers can be styled using heat tools, such as curling irons or straighteners. However, it's recommended to use heat protectants to maintain the longevity of the hairpiece.
How often should I clean my hair topper?
Cleaning frequency depends on how often you wear it. Generally, you should clean your topper every 20-30 wears. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner, and gently comb out any tangles.
Will people be able to tell I'm wearing a hair topper?
Well-designed and properly attached hair toppers are usually undetectable. Choose a topper that matches your hair color and style, and work with a professional if you're unsure about application.
Can I sleep and shower with a hair topper on?
It's recommended to remove your hair topper before sleeping, swimming, or showering. These activities could affect the lifespan of the piece and its attachment. It’s worth noting that it may also be uncomfortable and cause unnecessary tension.
How long do hair toppers typically last?
The lifespan varies depending on factors like the quality of the hair, how well you care for it, and how often you wear it. On average, a good-quality hair topper can last anywhere from 6 months to a year or more.
Can I get a custom-made hair topper?
Yes, many manufacturers offer custom-made options where you can choose the base size, hair color, length, and density. This ensures a more personalized and natural look. Consult with a Professional if you’re requiring a custom piece.
