Diving into the world of wearing hair can be intimidating. Since wigs and hair toppers come in so many colors, shapes, and sizes, searching for hair topper extensions can get frustrating and might make you feel a bit lost. 

Hair toppers add fullness and length to your thinning hair or bald spots. The right hair topper extensions should add volume to your hair and make you feel more confident than ever before. 

But how can you ensure the topper hair extensions you buy are the appropriate ones for you? How do you know your hair topper will blend with your natural hair? Let’s take a look at five things to consider before buying your topper hair extension. 

1. Type of Topper Hair Extensions 

Invest in a human hair topper if you want your topper extension hair piece to last more than a few months. The cost of human hair toppers is slightly more, but for good reason!

A high-quality human hair topper can last up to three years and has the most realistic appearance and feel. On the other hand, synthetic hair toppers frequently feel dry and have many styling limitations. With a human hair topper, you can style it just as you would your natural hair! 

2. Consider the Coverage and Length 

One of the most important things to think about while choosing a topper extension is covering. Make sure your chosen crown topper hair extension can adequately cover the targeted area.

Whether you’re going for a similar length to your natural or want to switch up your style, you can choose between short hair toppers, mid-length hair toppers, and long and luxurious hair toppers. 

3. Consider Texture and Hair Color

Look for a hair topper with a texture that complements your hair for the most natural appearance. The topper hair extension you choose should also match the color of your natural hair. 

Finding the ideal color match should be easy because there are so many lovely colors, highlights, and lowlights to choose from. If you're in love with a color, you may even decide to dye the rest of your current hair to match your hair topper.

4. Choose Installation Type

The best way to secure topper hair extensions is with clips. A clip-in hair topper gives your natural hair the ideal color, volume, and style in a matter of seconds without causing any damage. 

If you clip the topper close to your hair roots, it keeps your hair in place. If you choose to style it, it will also blend in perfectly with your natural hair.

5. Buy From a Company You Trust 

Buy your hair topper from a website you trust. There are many scams out there that will sell you a low-quality hairpiece at a high price. Always do your research and make sure there are real, authentic people behind the brand.
