Coverage Area

Cover-up hair patches are versatile and designed to cover specific areas of the scalp. They can be used to conceal any area where you may have thinning hair or bald spots, making them a flexible hair solution. You can always cut the base to match the shape of your head, providing a seamless and natural-looking appearance.

Hair toppers typically cover an area of 5 inches by 5 inches or larger. You can use a hair topper to lower your hairline, at the same time, cover the thinning top or thinning crown.  


Hair Type

Hair toppers are typically made from real human hair or synthetic hair. Most of Cover-up Hair patches are made from human hair and typically come in standard sizes and styles.

Both of them can be customized to match the texture, color, and density of your own hair.


Attachment Method

Hair toppers can be attached to the scalp with clips, tape, or adhesive, while cover-up hair patches are typically attached using adhesive.

Tapes and Adhesive Collection



If you lead an active lifestyle or engage in activities involving a lot of sweating or water, a hair topper may be more suitable as it can be easily removed and reattached. Hair patches may be less convenient for such situations.



Although it varies depending on individual differences, the cover-up hair patches can last for around 3 months. We recommend removing it every 1-2 weeks and giving your scalp relaxation. It can be used again after you clean the base.

If you prefer a hair piece with a longer service life, then a hair topper will be a better choice. Most hair toppers can last for over 1 year if cared for correctly.



Hair toppers can range in price depending on the quality of the hair and other specifications required, while hair patches may be more cost-effective.
