How To Choose a Base Size for your Hair Topper

August 26, 2020

It is important to identify the area of coverage you need when choosing a hair topper. Wearing the right sized base will ensure your topper will look natural and feel comfortable. To identify how much coverage you'll need, firstly determine the area of your hair loss. Hair loss can be at the part, crown, hairline or throughout. With a fabric measuring tape, record the measurements of the widest points of your hair loss, from front to back and side to side across the area where you are experiencing hair loss. You can use a mirror or ask someone to help you for best results.

Measure Your Hair Loss

Find the area of hair loss or the amount of coverage needed. There must be a sufficient amount of hair to attach the clips to, which is why measuring is so important.

Make Sure The Correct Measure

When you write down the measurements, don't forget to add one inch to each measurement. This will allow for extra hair on each side for where the clips can be attached comfortably. Make sure the area you plan to clip the hair topper into is healthy hair and can support the weight of the hair topper.



Since hair loss can be progressive, it is important that you retake and record these measurements every six months. This is to ensure you are wearing the correct base size and prevent any damage to your biological hair which can be caused by wearing the wrong size.
