The Best Hair Toppers for Thinning Hair

If you’re looking to hide hair thinning or hair loss, consider a hair topper or wiglet. This hair enhancer uses various attachment methods to blend in with your hair and provide a fuller look without wearing an entire wig. Here are some great hair toppers we recommend.

What to Consider Before Buying a Hair Topper

Here’s what to know before you buy:

  • Base: There are two types of bases: monofilament and classic. Monofilament bases attach each individual hair strand to mesh, while classic bases attach rows or wefts of hair.
  • Size: Hair toppers come in varying lengths, with most usually around 10 to 18 inches. Make sure you purchase a length that will cover the spot you want to provide thickness to and that will blend in with your layers or length of hair.
  • Color: Most hair toppers will come in a wide variety of colors, so you should be able to find a good match to blend in with your natural hair color. Some are even dyeable to get the perfect shade.

Most Natural: EMERLILY Human Hair Toppers

This hair topper will transform your look but blend in well. It is made with top-quality, natural human hair and is lightweight but will add length, volume, and suitable thickness to your natural hair. There are four convenient clips to stick the topper to your hair firmly. To clean, wash the hair with neutral shampoo and dry naturally.

Best Wavy Option: Vigorous Wavy Hair Toppers with Bangs

This hair topper provides seamless concealment with your natural hair. It is a thin topper and is naturally wavy, made with synthetic hair. The topper can be washed and restyled after use. The clips help to make it softer and breathable for comfortable wear.

Best Ombré Option: SARLA Ombré Hair Extension Brown to Golden

This light hair extender provides a fuller look, is easy to apply, and does not have any clips. It is synthetic and can be styled with heat. The ombré look will help blend with natural hair and is curly at the bottom. The swiss rose net inside creates a comfortable feel for the wearer, and the size can be adjusted.
