When you want to change or enhance your look, but you want to keep things natural, what’s the best option? Wigs are a great choice to replace lost hair or completely change hairstyles, but if you have some of your own natural hair to work with, adding a wiglet or top piece may be the perfect option. Wig-A-Do’s experienced stylists can help you achieve the look you are striving for with the wide variety of wiglet and top piece options.
What’s a Wiglet?
So now you may be asking yourself, what exactly is a wiglet? Wiglet is used to describe a variety of hair accessories. Not a full head wig, but a small piece covering less area and used to enhance your own natural hair. Wiglets aren’t ideal for those who are losing all or most of their hair, but rather for those wanting to add fullness or a specific style to their own hair. There are some wiglets that go on top of your head for volume or to add texture. These could also be called top pieces or toppers. But wiglets also refer to pull through or add on pieces, like buns and ponytails.
Wiglets are great for adding volume to naturally thin hair. For short hair, they can also add texture. With wiglets you don’t have to worry about hiding or tucking in your own hair. You’re adding in and working with your hair to simply enhance it. With the variety of up dos you can achieve with wiglets, like adding volume at the crown, twists and buns, wiglets are ideal for special occasions. They travel well and they won’t change or frizz in inclement weather.
When to Add a Top Piece
Top pieces are a great option if your hair is starting to thin at the top or around the crown of your head. This is a natural part of aging, although genetics and medications can also play a big role. The top piece blends with your own hair color and style, or you can even opt for one with some highlights to complement your own hair. Top pieces are also great for covering grays and root growth between trips to your hair stylist!
Wearing a top piece is simple. Most will clip or tape in, depending on the style. For wiglets or accessories like buns and pull throughs, the hair pieces just clips into your own hair. Top pieces can also be pinned (with bobby pins) to your own hair for added security. If the top piece covers your hairline, you may need to attach it much like you would attach a wig. This process is also easy. You just clean the skin around the hairline, add special wig glue or double sided tape, and place the wig.
