Toppers can be tricky. A half wig must be sized, colored and styled to blend perfectly with organic hair. This may be too much maintenance for some people, who opt for a wig instead.

Our advice before choosing your wig
Before adding a wig to your shopping basket, there are a few things you should note. First, the measurement of your head for a wig is different from the measurement for a topper. Instead of measuring the area of hair loss, you need to find the measurements of your entire head.
To do this, first measure from ear to ear. Next, measure the circumference of your head, or where the wig will be placed. Finally, find the length from the front of the hairline to the nape of the neck. Most wig wearers are in the medium range, but it’s best to be sure. Don’t hesitate to consult our measuring guide.
Once you’ve decided on a size, consider your lifestyle. Do you have time to style your hair every day, or do you prefer a low-maintenance look? Similarly, what’s your average activity level? Will you be sweating or sedentary? Oh, and of course, what’s your budget?
Thanks to advances in technology, wig manufacturing is very impressive. Features like lace fronts and monofilament tops give you styling versatility if you want it. More luxurious details, such as 100% hand-knotted cups, offer superior comfort and a natural look.
For a first wig, we recommend choosing a model close to the style and color of your organic hair. If you’re more adventurous, however, you can change your style and color. For example, you could opt for one of our blue wigs.
