Color matching for Hair Toppers: Does my topper need to match my hair color?

"Does my topper need to match my hair color?"
We answer this question almost every day. Today, let's talk about the color matching for hair toppers.

The short answer of this question is "it depends".

If you're in the beginning or progressive stages of hair loss, you do not need to pay extra money to buy a large-base topper. Choose a proper base size that is right for you to blend it with your own hair. Then, your topper needs to match your own hair color in order to achieve a natural look.

However, your topper does not always need to match your hair exactly. There are a couple of conditions this might be:

1.  As long as your root color matches the topper root color, you can wear a topper that has a different color. This is more important than actual color matching. For example, if you have darker hair and want to wear a blonde topper, just try to match the root color. It will work well because when people color/highlight their bio hair, the hair underneath is always darker.

2.  If you go for a larger base size, for example, 8.5" x 9" base toppers will be covering the majority of your bio hair. This way you can go for a topper with a similar hair color to yours and the large topper will cover most of your hair so it doesn't need to match precisely.

3.  Length and texture is also important. One of our customers got her first wavy topper that was a few inches longer than her hair and a different color, and the blunt lighter ends of her hair were really noticeable. She ended up straightening the topper to match her hair texture and trimmed her topper to the same length as her bio hair. The final result was great.
