I want to purchase a topper, but where should I start?

Many people want to purchase a topper but have no clue at all about how to choose one and which kind of topper will fit them best. By asking yourself these questions it will help you get somewhere step by step.

1. What is the purpose of buying a topper? Is it just for adding hair volume or to cover the hair thinning area?
To add hair volume, you have many choices about the size. Usually a small size like 5×5 or 5.5×5.5 can provide enough coverage with no problem.
To cover the hair thinning area, you need to measure your own cap size first. Is it 5×5, 6×6, 6×7, 8×9 or even bigger? After knowing your cap size, you can narrow your choices to a few specific hair topper options.

2. What kind of base do you like?
Usually there are 3 kinds of bases on the market, and they are Lace base, Monofilament base and Silk top base.
Monofilament base allows a smooth skin base top that resembles your own natural scalp. A mono-top mimics the look of natural hair growth and provides hair parting for the greatest versatility in styling.

This is another great choice if you want to ensure that the front hairline simulates your own. It is very light-weight and breathable which is perfect for hot days!

lace base

This is the most realistic scalp the market has to offer today. It perfectly hides the knots and you don’t need to worry about any other techniques to make the knots invisible or less visible.

silk top base

Silk top base has three layers of bases to create the most natural hairline. Thus it requires a certain technique to make it lay flat on the head and look natural on you. It is not recommended that beginners choose a silk top base. On the other hand, lace base is most breathable and easy to fit the head shape. However, you need glue to secure it in the front, hence it is also not the best option for beginners. All in all, Monofilament base might be a good choice for beginners.

3. What hair material do you like? Human hair or Synthetic fiber?
Human hair is just like your own hair and it is the choice of 90% customers. For human hair, you also can dye it, flatten it, and curl it. However, synthetic fiber is more economic.

4. What texture do you like?
You can choose the texture that you like. It has many options like natural straight, body wave, loose wave, curl, etc.

5. What color do you choose?
Not like a full wig, a slight difference of the color will not matter. For a topper, you need to pick a color that will exactly match with your own bio hair and this fact makes this step the most difficult one. First you can pick one or two close colors and compare them with your bio hair color by checking the photos on the website. The reviews and the pictures that customers posted. If you still cannot verify the color, you can contact their customer service desk to ask for some pictures of the hair sample and actual hair color to get more references.

6. What length do you like?
You can get a visual idea about what length you need through below picture.

7. What density do you need?
Usually 130% density can satisfy the needs of 90% of the customers. However, some people prefer really lush and full hair volume. In that case, then 150% or 180% can be your choices.

After answering all these questions step by step, you can get a clear idea what hair toppers will fit you the best.

Hair Loss Story by @AmyOnWigs

As I hung up the phone, a wave of dread overtook the perfect joy I had just experienced. My oldest son had called to let me know that he planned to ask his girlfriend, his soulmate, to marry him. All mothers pray for this moment-that their children will meet the right person to share their life with. And, I was beyond thrilled about this news. Visions of a perfect wedding flashed through my mind. Suddenly, they stopped abruptly on my head-my hair, actually. I couldn’t see the beauty of the bride and groom. I only envisioned the wedding photos and how I would ruin them with my messed-up hair. That was the way I saw myself-a balding photobomber who ruined every photo, every video. This moment that should have been celebrated turned into panic.

Over two decades ago, about 18 months after the birth of my second son, I began dealing with permanent hair loss. Most women experience hair shedding after they deliver a baby due to changes in their hormonal chemistry, but that gradually reverses itself and they regain any lost hair. It’s not permanent. However, that wasn’t the case for me. My hair just didn’t stop shedding, and what came out never returned. So, I went to see my OB/GYN and she referred me to a connective tissue specialist for an appraisal of my condition. The doctor took a scalp biopsy and told me that I had Androgenic Alopecia-a genetic or pattern baldness experienced by both men and women. It is inherited from one or both parents and can be triggered by hormones at any time after puberty. Hair is lost at the front, top, and the crown of the scalp. The hair loss can vary from thinning to complete baldness. It is estimated that around 50% of women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness.

Now knowing that I had Androgenic Alopecia, I had to slowly come to grips with the fact that most of the hair I lost wouldn’t be coming back. I stopped coloring my hair because I could see that the chemicals in the hair dye caused me additional issues-weakening the hand strands and creating more fallout. Having a fully gray head at that age left me looking older than I was and older than my friends. But, I just didn’t see any other alternative. I struggled to style my progressively thinning hair, pulling it back in a sparse ponytail for many years and wearing fabric headbands to hide my thinning hairline. Yet every day, I knew it was getting worse, and I wouldn’t be able to camouflage it any longer.

As it turned out, the engagement announcement was the moment that led me to search for a resolution to my problem. Hitting YouTube hard, I watched dozens of videos about hair loss, which led me to wigs and wig review videos. Seeing that wigs were NOT the sweaty, molded-cap designs they were in years past, I started to entertain the idea of purchasing one. Certainly, I would have to do it quickly if I was going to find a wig and get used to wearing one before my son’s wedding. I purchased my first wig. I immediately fell in love with her, and she was in a price range that seemed reasonable for a first wig. The day she arrived, I was SO nervous! What if I looked terrible in a wig? I would have to attend the wedding and find places to hide to avoid the photographer. I know that sounds so vain, but women count on their hair to create their look. Without it, you have to redefine your identity. It’s not easy to do without your hair!

Wearing a wig to my son’s wedding gave me courage and built back up the self-esteem I had lost so many years ago. I got many compliments on my “hair,” and when the wedding festivities were over, I was ready to add to my alternative hair collection.

That’s when I discovered Uniwigs, specifically the LaVivid Collection. I began wearing LIZ, a short bob with silky Kanekalon fibers. Her color, Java Shimmered, was simply gorgeous! It looked like I had just walked out of the salon with a new haircut, color, and highlights! I also own Natalie in the color Shadow Chestnut, and I adore her too!

It is amazing to me how something as easy as wearing a wig can boost a person’s self-confidence so greatly. I only wish I had known how incredible this was going to feel years ago, not having to suffer so long.

How to dye a synthetic wig

Dying a synthetic wig is very different from dying human hair wigs. Dying your synthetic hair wig in a correct manner is like a dream come true. While dying a hair wig, it is usually advised to have all the right materials on hand to ensure the process goes relatively smoothly. This also applies for dying a synthetic hair wig.

So what will you need?
1.Synthetic Wig that is heat resistant.
2.Fabric dye of your choice.
3.A flat plastic comb.
4.Pot and stove.
5.Old clothes maybe.
6.A pair of surgical (latex or rubber) gloves.

how-to-dye-a-synthetic-wig
how-to-dye-a-synthetic-wig

So, what are the steps to dye a synthetic wig?
1.Set up your Wig Stand on a dry, newspaper-covered, flat and stable surface. The dyeing process may be really messy, so it’s best to choose an area that’s far away from any valuables.
2.Place your wig on the Stand and put on your gloves. Put on an old outfit that you don’t care about in case some of the dye gets on your clothing.
3.Mix a 1:1 ratio of alcohol-based ink and water in a spray bottle. If you’re wanting to go for a more translucent pastel shade, such as mint green, you can add more water.
4.The original color to a large degree determines the result. White or blonde synthetic hair is quite easy to dye compared to much darker colors. But dark synthetic hair cannot be dyed to a lighter or white color. Therefore, choose a wig that you want, as long as it’s a light color, such as white, light blonde, silver, or a pastel shade.
5.Start by dyeing the top layer of hair that’s visible when the wig is parted naturally. Take your spray bottle and spray your dye 3-5 times in a single area to coat a section of about 2-3 inches (5.1-7.6 cm) wide. Dig your fingers into the root area and wiggle them from side to side as you bring them down through the hair. Run your hands through the section 2-3 times to ensure that it gets completely coated.
6.After you’ve sprayed every section of hair with dye and tried to spread it out as much as possible with your hands, the hair may still not look completely uniform. To finish evening out the dye application, use a wide-tooth comb to comb through the hair from the roots to the tips all the way around the head.
7.After you’re done dying your wig, set it outside somewhere in the sun and let it dry completely. This usually takes about 2-3 hours, but may take longer if your wig is especially long or thick.
8.Once your wig feels dry to the touch, take it to a sink and turn on the water. Rinse your wig until the water in the sink is completely clear, and no longer has traces of the ink color.
9.Detangle your wig with a wide-tooth comb. Spray the wig with a synthetic hair conditioner, which you can find at your local beauty supply store.

Some of the tips are from Wikihow.com. Hope these tips can help you achieve your dream of dyeing a synthetic wig to a cool fashion color.

Although green wigs are not as commonly used as blonde or black wigs, nothing is as impressive with various kinds of green hair as this Magical Mermaid wig. Why should mermaids have all the fun? Because they are the freely-swimming sea creature in the deep blue and green sea. Go for Seafoam Green hair that fades out to a soft Mint green shade and see if you’re not ready to live a life under the sea.

So which one is the best-seller among all those in the trendy wigs collection? It’s hard to say, since color trends change all the time. Almost all of them have a hot sale time that varies as much as the color of the wigs. So, what are they? Here we have provided a collection of all of the wigs which have been NO.1 sellers. Hope these pictures can help you to decide which one to choose in this big sale!

The Do’s for dealing with Fine or Thin Hair

We know there are lot of people who are struggling with their fine or thin hair. So today, let’s talk about the Do’s for managing Fine/Thin Hair.

1.Easy does it.
Try to be as gentle as possible to your hair. Fine hair is much more fragile than thick healthy hair. When you shampoo your hair, remember to gently massage your hair and scalp instead of roughly rubbing it because it’s easy to damage the hair-especially when it’s wet.

2.Conditioning the ends of your hair.
Please try to avoid putting too much conditioner around your hair roots because this can flatten your hair more easily as the more treatment products that touch your roots, the more weight that is added, and your hair will eventually become flatter. This is why we make sure to only condition from the level of our ears on down, making sure to rinse it and leave the top half completely free of hair conditioner.

3.Cold water.
We know it sounds a bit cruel, but using cold water works very well for me. When we take a shower,we usually try to shower with not very hot water (which is really not good for your hair). We always use lukewarm water when we take a shower, and then we turn the tap to cold and rinse all the conditioner out of our hair. We feel that this process helps me to seal everything and is a lot healthier for my hair. We  know that process requires suffering a little pain at the time, but it will make a difference.

4.Gently Brush.
Please gently brush your hair from the top of your head (NOT from your roots) to the end of it by using a wide tooth comb.

5.Choose the right HAIR PRODUCT/HAIR TOPPER at UniWigs.com
Hair toppers are new creative hair products which can help you to add hair volume on the top of your head. You can find many helpful reviews of UniWigs toppers as well as tutorials on their YouTube channel.

The number 1 question that customers ask about Toppers

As newcomers to hair toppers, there are many things that we would like to know and many things we should be aware of. Here is the number one question that UniWigs’ customers usually ask about hair toppers.

Number 1:
I have been suffering from hair loss for years now, so how can I choose the right topper for myself?

This question has been frequently asked because most customers are new to this product. They never realized that there is a product which can be meant specially for them except for the wigs and extensions. So, how can you choose a perfect topper? What should you know before making the decision?

1.You have to know how severe your hair loss is.
 If you only have a thinning parting line, or you don’t have any serious hair loss at all and just want to add to your hair volume, congratulations! You have plenty of options at the base size and construction. Toppers are designed not only for those who are hair loss sufferers, but also for those who would like to have a better volume or a perfect hairstyle for occasions such as weddings or parties.
However, if you do suffer from major hair loss, your choice of toppers would be limited to only larger base toppers. And the size of the topper depends on the degree of your hair loss, so how can you determine it? Please check out this video which may help you out,

2. In addition to determining the base size, you should know which type of construction would be the best-suited to your needs.

Let’s take UniWigs for example. There are a wide variety of base construction options such as silk top, mono topper and lace topper. So, what’s the difference between these various types?

Normally, all of them share the function of completely and effectively covering up the hair loss area.
The silk top has the best invisible base which is just like our own scalp. However, it is extremely thick and will prove to be sweaty as well.
The mono topper is familiar to us because it has been used as the wig of choice for cancer patients It is softer than a silk top and has a good parting line.
The lace topper, which has the best price in 3 of them, has a front lace that has to be trimmed. Because of this, it is not usually the first option or the beginner.

3.Choosing the right color.
After determining the base size and base construction, we come to the hair color.

Hair color is the most important factor to consider for hair toppers because we have to make sure it matches the color of our natural hair, or it has the perfect style which can match our face frame and skin tone.
If you are not sure about the way to choose the hair color, there are 2 methods to solve it.
1. By sending a hair sample to them. This would be the easiest way, but it takes a longer time.
2. By ordering a color ring from their website. Then you can return the color ring to them after placing the order for a full refund.

https://www.uniwigs.com/care-products/41120-color-chart-human-hair-extension.html
3. By choosing a natural black topper and getting it dyed. Please be aware that only the natural black can be bleached, and that all of the other colors can only be dyed into darker tone.
4. By making a custom order. You also can send them a picture with the color that you would love to make, and they will quote the price for you. However, the custom-made product cannot be returned, so you have to make sure before ordering.

4 . How to choose the right length
For the straight item, you can choose the length according to the picture shown below:

For the wavy topper the hair length should be measured from the hair root to the hair bottom when the hair is set straight. The curly and wavy wigs have been produced from straight wigs, so for the same length, a curly or wavy wig will be shorter by 1″-2″ than the straight wig.
*It varies depending on how deep the curl is.

After confirming all of the above, you can have a better idea about which hair topper is the one that’s ideal for you. Please be aware that sometimes everything is perfect with the topper, except for the fact that it doesn’t fit you properly. Because of this unfortunate fact, UniWigs is now planning for an offline store, which would be a good development for those who are new to toppers.

Things you should know about Mens’ hairpieces – toupees

We have found that too little information about toupees can be found online. Actually, more and more men need toupees now. That’s why we have made this post. Here we will let you know the definition of toupee, celebrities who use toupees, what are the best and worse toupees, and how to choose a toupee online, etc.

vin-diesel
vin-diesel

So first of all, do you know the definition or meaning of the word, toupee?
Definition of toupee: a small artificial hairpiece worn to cover a bald spot.
While most toupees are small and designed to cover bald spots at the top and back of the head, large toupees are not unknown. Toupees are often referred to as hairpieces, units, or hair systems. Many women now wear hairpieces rather than full wigs if their hair loss is confined to the top and crown of their heads.

Many celebrities wear toupees.
Many, many people wear toupees, and more and more Hollywood stars do so due to hair loss problems. Try to search for “celebrity toupees before and after” on Google and you will find many famous celebrities who wear toupees. What we are trying to say is that wearing hair replacement systems is so common that you don’t need to be ashamed of needing one yourself.

corey-stoll

Corey Stoll was a breakout, bald star of House of Cards and Midnight in Paris, so we were shocked to see him with a hairpiece in FX’s vampire thriller, The Strain. Luckily, the elaborate coif was just a plot device – his character shaved his head to go incognito in Season 2.

bloody picture after hair transplant

Celebrities always seem to lead fashion trends everywhere. But not everything can be copied. Have you read the post about Alex Beattie who shared bloody pictures of himself after having a hair transplant? By sharing a picture of himself with a bloody hairline following the painful procedure, Alex opened up to his 688k followers. It looked really painful. Not everyone can handle this. Why not just choose a hair replacement systems without pain or worry.

So How to choose a toupee online?
Before finding out how to choose a toupee, you should know which toupees are good and which are bad. Unlike the toupee definition, there is no fixed standard for the best and worst toupees. However, one thing can be said for sure is that protection of your scalp is the minimum requirement. Other standards such durability, dyeing and styling options, and ease of application and cleaning should be of high standards among high quality toupees, too. If you don’t know how to avoid the worst toupees, search online and you will find many negative customer stories.

Here at UniWigs, big news is that we will add 4 toupees to our line of fine hairpieces. Partly because it’s hard to find cheap, high-quality toupees online, but also because more and more women are asking for toupees for their husbands and fathers according to our Customer Service Department. Additional good news is that we will have a special offer and big sale for these hair pieces for men on Father’s Day 2018. Each of them has 7-8 colors that can be chosen from to match your skin tone. You can ask for custom-made pieces too.
