The ‘perfect’ blend
One of the main issues that women who wear toppers have is how to blend them with their bio hair. A good blend looks much more realistic. You do not have this same problem with a wig, as most of – if not all of – your bio hair is covered by the wig. (I tend to pull out some of my bio hair at the ears when wearing a wig, but this is not necessary.) Wearing wigs means you can be a bit more experimental with different colours.
As a topper sits on top of your head, you will see some of your own bio hair at the front, sides and underneath the topper hair. This can vary depending on how big the topper cap is, how much hair the topper has and how thick it is. For this reason, a good colour match is important. For example, I do not have much hair at the front of my hairline, so I tend to wear my toppers right where my hairline begins. However, for women who have more hair in this area, they often wear their toppers an inch or so back from the hairline and then blend their bio hair with the topper hair.
If you have jet black hair and you choose to wear a white blonde topper, this is going to be an obvious contrast. However, you can wear a few different shades lighter or darker than your bio hair – especially if the topper is rooted. It is quite normal for the hair at the nape of our neck to be slightly darker than the top of the head and also many women have darker roots than the lengths and ends of their hair. In the above video, I will show you a few of the different shades of brown topper I wear on a regular basis – from light brown with subtle blonde highlights to a dark chocolate brown.
