Human hair topper review: Uniwigs Melanie with fringe/bangs

Here’s my review of the Melanie topper from Uniwigs. I really like this piece and have been wearing her regularly for a few months now. She is light and comfortable to wear, but with a good amount of coverage due to the large base. I did have to trim the fringe as it was way too long for me. But better that it comes with a too-long fringe than a too-short one.

Wig review: Arrow synthetic wig by Ellen Wille

I recently connected with the lovely Stacy from My Beautiful Wigs. We both have young kids and are going through the same juggling act of trying to work and look after little people. She sent me the gorgeous Arrow wig to try out. This is my first Ellen Wille wig and so far I’m impressed. Soft fibres, gorgeous colour (the highlights are the bomb 💣) and low density. My phone cut out halfway through the video, so I lost a bit of it. I was just blabbing on about how wig caps don’t stay on my odd-shaped head, so you haven’t lost anything important.

Synthetic topper review: Top Smart Wavy, Jon Renau Favourites Collection

Check out my review of the new Top Smart Wavy synthetic topper from Jon Renau’s new Favourites Collection. In the past, you could only get the Top Smart in a straight style and your only option for a wavy synthetic topper from JR was the Top Wave.

I had previously bought the Top Wave, but found the hairline was not realistic and ended up cutting in a fringe. The Top Smart Wavy has a lace front, which is much better for those of us who don’t have much hair at the front of their hairline.

The colour I’m wearing is 8/30, which is a slightly lighter brown than I usually wear. I love the warm tones and also the curl pattern! In these photos, I do not have any of my bio hair out (owing to a home-dye job that went a bit wrong). As you can see, there’s a good amount of hair on this topper.

I have struggled slightly with getting the lace front to sit completely flat and have ended up using hair gel on my bio hair to slick it back out of the way. I do not like having to ‘glue’ down the lace on toppers, so I’m hoping I won’t have to do this with this piece.

Human hair topper review: LilyHair Bionic topper

Here are my first impressions of the Bionic Scalp human hair topper from LilyHair. What is a bionic top? I would say it is somewhere between a monofilament top and a silk top. It is quite natural looking – up close you can see the ‘grid’, but no knots.

In this video I am wearing colour #4, which is from the Natural range. Something to note is that the hair in the Natural range is referred to as virgin hair. My definition of ‘virgin’ is that the hair has not been coloured or processed. However, the Natural range of toppers have been coloured and processed, apart from one option called Unprocessed Natural (a dark brown). If you are planning on colouring the hair, then this is the option to choose. As well as the Natural range, LilyHair does offer custom-coloured pieces, including ombre and highlights.

Below are the main positives and negatives so far.

Positives

Good price for REMY human hair Hair feels soft and silky (I have not washed it yet)

Cap is light, comfortable and sits very flat to my head

You can’t see the knots and there are no return hairs

According to LilyHair, a bionic top is more durable than other materials (I have not worn this enough yet to test this)

Negatives

The hairline at the front is not realistic and you can see the edge of the topper. However, there is the option to add a lace front to your topper when you order

Hair has a few split ends
