It is very important to identify correctly the area of coverage needed when you want to choose the right hair topper for yourself. First determine the area of hair loss, which can be at the part, crown, hairline or throughout. With a fabric measuring tape, record the measurements of the widest points from front to back and side to side across the area where you are experiencing hair loss.

Hair Topper 101 - Choose the Right Base Size
When you write down the measurements, don's forget adding one inch to each measurement, which will allow for a half an inch of hair on each side or end of the base for a clip to attach into your existing hair. Keep in mind the area you are clipping to with the hair topper can support the weight of the hair and the base of the topper to avoid causing hair loss to your biological hair.

Since the hair loss can be progressive, it is important that you retake the measurements every six months and record these measurements, to ensure you are wearing the correct base size to avoid any damage or loss to your biological hair.
