Much care should be used when selecting a topper for alopecia coverage. Toppers are available not only in a variety of styles, colors, and hair types, but also base sizes & application methods. It’s important that clips used to hold the topper on the head are not located in areas that are actively experiencing hair loss. The texture and amount of hair are also important factors when selecting the right piece. A-List’s consultants are experts in wigs and toppers for alopecia. We’ll help you select the right topper base, placement, style, color, and application method for your specific needs.
Pictured here is a great example of the difference a topper can make for someone with alopecia. This client has been gradually losing hair for a few years all around her hairline. She wears a hat or headband everywhere she goes. This topper gives her the option of covering those areas in a manner that’s not only realistic looking, but safely applied to prevent the risk of pulling out more hair.
Our consultant selected the appropriate base size and construction to avoid any thinning areas and enough density at the sides to provide the coverage needed. Choosing the right length, texture, and color were important factors for the topper to blend well with her own hair. This piece has a lace front for a natural looking scalp. We removed the front clips and used body-safe wig glue at the lace to keep the topper in place. The other clips were located in ‘safe’ areas so no modifications were needed on the sides or back of the piece. The rooted color was a perfect match for her bio hair with just the right shade to give her a sunkissed look when blended in with her own hair.
