February 25, 2024 Hair Topper 101 Views: 361

As one of the leading online destinations for alternative hair solutions, UniWigs has become the go-to choice for many seeking hair toppers. We’re thrilled to witness the growing acceptance of hair toppers and wigs among women, and with that, we often receive inquiries from beginners. Today, we’ve decided to address some of the most common questions about hair toppers in the hopes of offering guidance to more individuals.

Why doesn’t my topper look like the model’s?
Upon receiving your topper, it’s important not to wear it immediately without proper styling. Take some time to watch tutorial videos on our social media channels to learn how to blend and style your topper effectively. Start by wearing it at home to get accustomed to it, and gradually experiment with different techniques to achieve a natural look.

Where can I find a place to thin and trim my topper?
You can find a reputable hair salon or professional hairstylist specializing in wig customization to thin and trim your topper. Their expertise can help you achieve your desired look while ensuring your topper matches your preferences perfectly.

What kind of shampoo should I use to wash my topper?
For human hair toppers, it’s crucial to use a shampoo specifically designed for alternative hair, preferably with color-preserving effects. Opt for mild, sulfate-free formulas to avoid stripping the hair fibers. Additionally, follow up with a conditioner made for hairpieces to maintain softness and manageability.

How can I hide the knots?

Unlike skin base and silk top toppers, mono top toppers feature a thin, lightweight base with visible knots. To conceal knots on your topper, you have several options. Makeup, matching your scalp color, can be applied to knots with a brush or sponge for a natural blend. Alternatively, silicone tape offers an adhesive, translucent, and smooth solution that seamlessly covers knots, providing secure hold. Concealer, matching your scalp color, can also be gently blended onto knots using fingers or a brush. Adjusting the parting of your topper or applying hair fiber/powder matching your hair color are additional methods to disguise knots effectively. Experiment with these techniques to find the best solution for your needs.

How do I determine my cap size?


Ensuring the right fit is essential for a seamless and comfortable experience with your topper. Visit UniWigs’ learner page to learn how to measure your cap size accurately. If you’re unsure, opt for a larger cap size to better conceal your natural hair. Alternatively, our support team at UniWigs can assist you in customizing your topper to meet your specific needs.
