Creating A More Realistic Look with Your Hair Topper

With so many different base sizes, fibers, lengths, and colors to choose from, how can you find the right solution to meet your needs? How do you find the product that will work best for you and will also look the most natural? Here we break it down for you in three easy to follow steps. Remember: measure, fiber, and color!

Let's first look at finding the appropriate sized topper for you. To do this, you need a fabric measuring tape. Measure the area that you wish to cover from side to side and then from front to back. Using these measurements, add one inch to both the width and length. This ensures that the clips on the topper base have sufficient hair to attach to.

Now let's look at length - Many Jon Renau toppers come in different length options. To determine the best length, start by measuring the length of your biological hair at the top of your head down to the ends. This will give you a good idea of the topper length you need. Jon Renau toppers have a tapered end, which makes them easily blend in with your biological length. If you are in between lengths, you can always reach out to an alternative hair professional to customize your topper, or you may opt to go with a shorter length option.

Finally, choosing the correct color! With so many color options that vary between fibers it can be overwhelming. Not to worry, fiber has everything to do with maintenance. Determine first how much time you want to spend on your hair, and how you wish to style it. This narrows your fiber choices to best fit your preferences. If you prefer to style your hair and don’t mind the extra time and maintenance human hair requires, this product type offers a longer lasting topper with multiple styling options.

Now to match the color, take the first one inch of your hairline and call our help line at 1-800-300-6001 to speak to a professional and get matched with the best color for you. Keep in mind that your hair will always be lighter at the front and top of your head than it will be in the nape area.

That’s it! You now have your base dimensions, length needed, and color choice. It is time to select your topper. When you receive it, in order to create a seamless blend with your biological hair and your new topper, remove any parting by first washing and then styling your piece to match your own natural part. You can also use eyeshadow or root sprays to create more fullness in your own part and match the topper.

Choosing and wearing a topper can be a fun, liberating experience. At Jon Renau, we want you to feel happy and confident in your alternative hair choices. Happy shopping!
