OK, this is not the best video I’ve ever made, but I’ll show it anyway. I have never been skilled with toppers, and although I thought I did an OK job with this one, the second I walked out of my office after filming my husband looked at me funny and said, are you wearing a toupee? So no, I did not do a good job, since he never says anything about my wigs unless he doesn’t like something about them (he’s not rude, just so totally used to seeing me with all sorts of hair on my head that he stopped reacting a long time ago).
This is NOT the topper’s fault. In fact, this is a really nice one, with a double-monofilament top for realism and not too much lift up top. It’s also a nice mid-length, stopping right about the chin. The clips are strong and not uncomfortable, and the synthetic fiber is nice. It was ready to wear right out of the box. I just don’t have skill with hairpieces and never have, which is why I always went for wigs instead.
I couldn’t even bring myself to show the part of the video where I have it on my head, it looks too silly. But I did take a decent before and after picture where I do the topper some sort of justice.
It’s great for adding some lift or covering hair loss on top of the head, but color match can be an issue and the topper doesn’t quite match my bio hair; it doesn’t help that I’m growing out old hair dye and the bottom of my hair is lighter than the top, so between the topper, my natural color, and the hair dye, I have three colors going on here and it looks pretty weird. And I could not get the topper placed so the hairline looked natural. With some practice I could learn to pull this off, but I’ll probably just sell this one to someone who can use it and go buy another wig!
Here’s a little part of the video where i show the topper and the inside of the monofilament top.
