Spreading The Facts About Hair Toppers

Hair toppers are a popular product from The Lauren Ashtyn Collection. They are luxury hair pieces that add volume to women’s heads of hair all around the world. Hair toppers are specifically beneficial for those who are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning.

Unfortunately, there are lots of hair topper myths floating around. This misinformation often scares women away from boosting their confidence and style.

You shouldn’t let a misconception keep you from looking and feeling your best! That’s why we’ve created this guide to myths about wigs and toppers. We want to help women like you understand the truth about 100% European Remy hair products.

Continue reading to learn the truth about toppers and wigs so you can make the most informed choice for you.

What Is A Hair Topper?

Hair toppers are for those experiencing hair loss at the top of the head. Some people use them when they have gray hair coming in. Others simply want a boost in volume.

You might hear people refer to this hairpiece as a “wiglet.” That’s because it looks like a miniature version of a full hairpiece.

The Difference Between a Hair Topper and Wig

Hair toppers are for smaller, more focused sections of the head, whereas wigs cover the entire head. Women use clips to fasten hair toppers to their natural hair.

Toppers come in a variety of colors and styles and are available in both synthetic and human hair. However, a hair topper made out of human hair will be versatile in terms of styling and coloring. It tends to look far more natural than a synthetic alternative.

Here are some of the hair topper myths we would like to set straight:

1. It’s Obvious

BUSTED! A popular hair topper myth is that they will “look fake.” Many women believe people will notice that the topper is not their natural hair.

As a result, some women feel discouraged about wearing them. They are missing out, as this couldn’t be further from the truth.

A high-quality hair topper is often impossible to detect. Celebrities experiencing hair loss walk the red carpet without anyone guessing they are wearing a hair topper. That's because they spring for the highest quality hair piece available. Right now, that's Remy.

The Lauren Ashtyn Collection exclusively stocks Remy 100% real human hair. We also offer consultations to ensure you get the exact cut, style, and color you need. This is another way your human hair topper will appear completely natural.

2. It’s Hard To Maintain

A big hair topper myth is that hair toppers and wigs are extremely hard to manage.
Remy 100% real human hair toppers do require maintenance each day. This basic care is not difficult or stressful. In fact, it’s not much different than caring for your natural hair.

We’ve found that once people get a routine in place, care becomes as simple as brushing their teeth at night. Make sure to have a space big enough for the extension. This helps to avoid tangles and keeps your wig or topper looking great.

Some people also believe hair toppers damage your hair. Neither do they harm your hair, nor do they stop it from growing. Hair toppers add more volume to hair that is already thinning and are very low maintenance.

The Lauren Ashtyn Collection offers clip in extensions that are simple to remove at the end of the day. This will cut down on the time it takes to maintain your extension and keep it looking good as new.

3. Only Older Women Use Hair Toppers

This hair topper myth has never been more incorrect! A hair topper is perfect for women of all ages with thin hair. Most women would like a little extra bounce to work with, whether they are 19 or 90.

Light volume and full volume hair toppers are natural-looking solutions for women with medical conditions that cause hair loss.

But if a woman wants to improve her hair game, hair toppers might be the best option. Whether you are experiencing hair loss or not, you can look absolutely stunning and fabulous in a hair topper.

Now you might be wondering if you can wear a topper with short hair. The answer is YES! Women with short and long hair can wear hair toppers and achieve any desired look. These days, there is no stigma in using clip in hair extensions.

4. It Is Uncomfortable

It’s pretty common to question if hair toppers are comfortable. We are here to debunk the myth that hair toppers are uncomfortable. As opposed to full hairpieces, a hair topper is much more breathable and lightweight because of its smaller portions.

The Lauren Ashtyn Collection exclusively sells clip in extensions, which is a lightweight method of adding hair to your style. Either way, advancements have allowed all sorts of hairpieces to fit better and feel more comfortable! Many women forget they are wearing a hair topper when using a high-quality extension like Remy real human hair.

5. Hair Toppers Are Not Versatile

FALSE! This hair topper myth is totally incorrect. When shopping at The Lauren Ashtyn Collection, you have the option to completely customize your hair topper.

This is important to look for when shopping around. You can get more than one style and cut to fit your many moods. Just ask for a consultation, and we will be happy to answer your questions.

People tend to wonder if you can dye your hair topper. Unlike synthetic hair toppers, you can easily dye human hair toppers!

It’s also typical to wonder if you can swim with a hair topper or exercise with a hair topper. Due to its versatility, you can work out and swim in your hair topper. It’s important to keep in mind that this will shorten your hair topper’s life span. Consider using a synthetic hair topper for swimming and exercising and a human hair topper for one you will wear daily.

Wigs: Fact and Fiction

Hair toppers are not the ideal solution for every woman. If you experience total hair loss, a wig might be preferable. Likewise, a wig may work better for women with hair loss in an area other than the top of the head.

Wigs from The Lauren Ashtyn Collection are also 100% European Remy human hair. That means many of the myths above apply to our wigs, too.

They are natural, versatile, and look great on women of all ages. You can dye them, style them, cut them, or curl them. Maintenance is minimal, and you’ll enjoy years of use.

The design of our wigs ensures they stay in place, even if you do not have any hair. You won’t experience slipping or sliding. The cuts and colors are trendy and contemporary, too. That means you’ll always look like you just stepped straight out of the salon!
