Hair toppers can do more than add volume and length, they can solve many other issues including thinning hair. Using of a hair topper for receding hairline can greatly improve the look of thinning bio hair by covering and camouflaging the areas of concern.
However, hair toppers are NOT for everyone. Toppers are secured to your own hair using pressure-sensitive clips and over time, they can potentially cause more hair loss or hair breakage. For that reason, we do not recommend toppers for anyone experiencing active hair loss (more than the usual amount of hair lost when brushing hair, showering, etc).
It’s important that the topper base is the right size for the degree of hair loss you’re experiencing, and that the clips are located in areas where you have enough hair for them to attach. There are lots of tips and tricks to keeping a hairpiece secure on your head such as the clip size and location, making fine hair more receptive to attachment, and styling tips for seamless blending. A hair topper for receding hairline will generally require the addition of tape or glue at the front to keep the piece in place.
The lovely lady pictured below came into the salon looking for a topper for receding hairline as well as a some thinning at the crown. She also wanted to brighten up her blonde a bit. The Ellen Wille piece she selected has a larger base size, a lace front, and full monofiliment hand-tied top. Due to her receding hairline, there isn’t much hair for front clips to attach so she will glue at the lace (water-soluble, easy to remove). Adding a tiny bit of hairspray or gel in the temple clip areas on the sides will give her fine hair a better base to clip in to.
This particular piece is heat friendly so she can use heat tools to change up the style. The base color was matched to her bio hair and the lighter blonde highlighting brightens the overall look.
Even if you don’t have hair loss, a topper is a great way to spruce up your hair color for the seasons without damaging your own hair.
