My hair is thinning on top and back. I’m trying to decide if a wig topper would blend in with my shoulder length blonde hair. Will it be more comfortable in the hot summer? With a large head, wig selections is limited, so who will be helpful to match color without buying things like test color kits?
A wig topper is designed to conceal hair loss at various stages and different areas of the scalp. Some toppers offer more coverage on the top, while others cover the sides or back of the head. A topper is also ideal for adding volume to thin or fine hair.
Personally I do not find that wearing a wig in the summer is uncomfortably hot. The wigs I wear are a human hair/synthetic blend, so perhaps that has something to do with it. But if wearing a wig feels uncomfortable in the heat, I would imagine a wig topper would be more comfortable.
A wig topper might be a perfect option for you and will probably be a little trickier than purchasing a full wig, especially if you want it to match your hair color and your hair style (curly, straight, wavy, etc). Depending on your level of comfort, it would probably be easiest if you visited a wig store yourself and seeing what the options are and what they recommend.
If you are not comfortable doing this, then I am afraid your only options will be trial and error (which could be expensive) or purchasing a test color kit. Rest assured that wig stores are very much accustomed to girls like us. You aren’t the first, the only, or the last member of our community to ask for help.
The reality is that building your wardrobe, discovering your look, learning makeup, finding heels that we can walk in, takes money, time, patience, and tenacity. There’s value in investing in ourselves, whether it is putting in the time to learn a new language or spending money to find the wig that suits us best.
