Summer is all about looking good while staying cool, and wearing your hair topper shouldn’t weigh you down no matter what the weather is. Summer is an exciting time to be outside, so having a light weight hair piece is key to enjoying all that outdoor fun. A hair topper is a perfect option for keeping cooler this summer; it will cover up thinning hair or most partial hair loss and add can even add volume to your look!
Synthetic and heat-friendly synthetic hair toppers offer less-dense options for the summer months because they are made of a lightweight fibers that look natural and are easy to pop on and get out the door quickly as they require little styling efforts!
Not only will synthetic hair toppers keep cool, but the style memory allows the piece to retain its look without any additional heat styling from you. The synthetic topper also won’t react to changes in the weather, meaning if it’s a humid and muggy day, your hair topper will not frizz up!
Go with a Lace Base
Though they tend to be more costly, a lace base hair topper is the most breathable option for your scalp during the summer. It's made of a lightweight layer of lace with individual hair fibers of hair hand tied to the base. They will look and feel the most natural and lightest base options.
Another lightweight option is a monofilament base. With a mono base, individual hair fibers are hand-tied to a fine mesh material that is breathable and airy. The mono base allows you to part the wig whichever way you’d like for a very natural look.
French knotting is another super realistic option using innovative technology to inject the hair through second layer of silk resembling a scalp as the knots are hidden. Like a lace base and a monofilament base, which are also hand tied, they can also be parted in any direction. While they are versatile and natural-looking, they are slightly denser than the other types of bases since they are constructed of multiple layers of lace and silk.
Shorten it Up
For summer, shorter synthetic hair toppers are another great option for keeping cool. Longer hair can be warmer during the summer, but wearing toppers make it easy to pull back, braid or wear it up to stay cool!
