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!

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 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.

Why hair topper beginners have so many complaints

We’ve received some complaints from hair topper beginners recently, and it seems that many people don’t know how to apply, wear and care for a topper. Before we discuss this, it’s important to become familiar with all the tips about hair toppers. Let’s see a complaint about UniWigs Toppers:

“First of all, it took me a lot of thinking before ordering this hair topper. This is the first time I buy \’something\’ to hide my thinning hair. Needless to say that I had great hope with this topper and really wanted it to work for me as a last resort. I ordered the silk base Claire topper in 14 inches colour 1B. I really wanted to get a nice topper for my first entry into this \’world\’. The hair itself is very sleek, straight, dense and shiny. However, after several attempts to have it properly positioned on my head, it does not look natural and comfortable (rigid). In the base (hidden part), thick bunches of hair are sticking out straight, which make the hair on top not sitting flat on my head with a weird \’hat\’ effect or \’pointy skull\’ effect. Maybe the curve of the cap also does that. I also find the free parting difficult to achieve with this piece. This is definitely not an entry piece. Beginners should perhaps start with cheaper pieces. Maybe it takes a lot of tweezing and cutting to arrange it to your liking but then it becomes ineligible for return. I was amazed by the great results achieved by the other women in their reviews and I am so disappointed to remain without a solution while losing money on top of that (shipping costs to Europe around 30$ + return costs + 15% restocking fees!).”

What a pity. Actually, there is no problem about the topper. The quality is good. The only problem here is that she doesn’t know how to apply a topper. We recommend this:

1.If you are new to hair toppers, you should look through the tips and videos about how to apply a topper. Learn how to wash and how to care for one. The more knowledge you have, the better. In UniWigs.com, you can find these tips here: https://www.uniwigs.com/content/9-how-to-videos or you can find more videos on our YouTube channel, @uniwigs. Also, if you can’t find the tips you need, our customer service can help you. The email is: support@uniwigs.com or just click the button“Live Chat”.
2.If you have any friends who also suffer from hair loss and she is a hair topper wearer, go ahead and ask her for some tips. She may give you some good advice that you can’t find online.
3.Finally, browse some real reviews from others about the topper. Reviews from other customers may help a lot. Because different toppers require different care and have different restyling tips, finding one that is perfect for your hair color and hair loss needs online is really not so easy.

Customer review of Vickie topper

Vickie Topper has been one of the most popular topper once it was launched , and a lot of our customers love it, here is one of them :

Lisa is one of our returning customer who has been order our Vickie topper for a few time , and everything was fine until we got her email below:

“Hello uniwigs. I received my topper today and I have to say in very confused. The color is correct, but the topper is straight. I ordered the Vickie which is wavy. Although she’s beautiful, she isn’t what I ordered. I’m hoping there was a mix up and my Vickie is there?????? Problem 2, I have no  problem shipping her back but can you send me a pre stamped envelope as shipping is out of country and will be costly.
Sincerely,
Lisa”

When we get this email we checked her order immediately with the shipping department , and confirmed that her order was mixed with the other customer , so we ask her to send it back for a correct item ,
And she was very happy with the service :

“Because uniwigs corrected this mistake so promptly, I went ahead and ordered another Vickie. I’ve been told this is a great topper, and although I havnt received my 1st real Vickie yet, I wanted a 2nd as back up. I’ve heard and seen so many reviews and I just know I’m going to love her as much as everyone else does. Thank you again for being so prompt with emails, calls and getting my order corrected immediately. I couldn’t bear to wait another 4 weeks. I will post another great review once I get her and enclose photos. I will also be doing a you tube video on her as there aren’t many on her yet. THANK YOU UNIWIGS, always a pleasure doing business with you. 
Sincerely, 
Lisa
