Hairstyles for Your Hair Topper: Four Ways to Blend Your Hair with Your Topper for a Natural Hairline
Struggling to blend and style your topper so that it looks natural? Looking for hairstyles for your topper to up your blend game? Don’t worry, I’ve been there.
When I received my first ever topper in the mail, I was more excited than the time my parents got me a My Little Pony doll for Christmas. I immediately tore into the packaging and removed it from the box. I’d been diagnosed with Androgenic Alopecia a few months prior and I’d saved up for this topper for months. The hair was incredible, soft and thick, and it matched my own copper shade perfectly. I placed the topper on my head, expecting to look like I had before my hair loss had ever started, and stepped toward my bedroom mirror. The euphoric feelings melted into sadness, embarrassment, frustration. It looked like I’d plucked someone else’s hair off their head, like a hat, and placed it jauntily on my own. In other words, super fake. The hairline looked completely unrealistic and I had no idea how to fix it.
What I didn’t know then was that most silk top hairpieces require some element of styling and blending at the hairline. This is the reason we recommend buying toppers in a similar shade to your own, so that you can utilize your own hairline to create a perfect blend and hide that transition between your topper and your own hair underneath. It took practice for me to figure out what placements, partings, and styles worked for me and my topper. I’m going to save you that trouble of figuring out how to blend your topper by showing you four perfect hairstyles for blending your topper's hairline, creating an undetectable transition, and looking super freaking cute. Keep reading!
Placing and Parting Your Topper
I don’t have the fullest natural hairline due to my hair loss, so I prefer a side parting with my toppers to get the most volume out of my own hair to blend into the hair of the topper. For this same reason, I also prefer to place my topper very close to my own hairline underneath so that the transition from my own hair into the topper isn’t as obvious. If you have a fuller hairline, you can also place your topper further back for these styles.
Style One: Dutch Braided Topper
To start your dutch braid on your topper, you’ll want to take a section of hair, blending a little bit of your own hair at your hairline with the topper hair. You’ll then split that section into three parts and do one round of a normal three-part braid, crossing the parts of hair under each other. Once you’ve started the braid, on the next step, you’ll begin adding sections of your own hair and the topper hair.
Take a small section of hair from the front and pinch it together with the front part of the braid then braid it under once. Next, take a small section of hair from behind the braid, most likely from your topper, and pinch it with the furthest back section of the braid. Braid that section under once.
Each time you move one section under, you should be switching from front to back where you take sections of hair, ensuring you only cross each section when new hair is added. Braid across the hairline until you’ve reached your temple or your ear, and finish off the braid as you normally would, without adding any more hair.
When you’ve finished the braid, wrap it around your head and pin it in place. Once the braid is pinned, you can leave it as is or gently pull on it to create more volume, as desired.
Style Two: Twisted Topper
To start off your twist, you first need to take a small section of hair, making sure there is a blend of your own hair and the hair of the topper. Take that section and divide it into two parts. Twist the two parts around each other once in the direction away from your hairline.
Next, take a small piece of hair from your hairline and add it to the front section of the twist. Twist that around the other section, away from your hairline once again.
Continuing the twist, you will take another small section of hair and add it to the new front part of the twist. Twist that section back away from the face. Continue this process until you reach your temple or ear. If you would like the twist to wrap around your head, you can just turn the end of the twist into a rope, not adding any extra hair.
Pin the twist into place. Once you’ve pinned it, you can leave it as is or gently pull on it to create more volume, as desired.
Style Three: Dutch Fishtail Braided Topper
To begin your dutch fishtail braid, you first need to take a small section of hair, making sure there is a blend of your own hair and the hair of the topper. Take that section and divide it into two parts. Cross those parts over each other, creating a little X at the root.
Next, take a small piece of hair from your hairline and a small part of the front section of the braid. Pinch those two parts together and cross them under the front section and add them to the back section of the braid.
Continuing the braid, take a small piece of hair from behind the braid and a small part of the back section. Pinch the two parts together and cross them under the back section of the braid, adding them to the front section. Continue doing this, swapping sides each time, until you reach the temple or ear.
Once you reach the temple or ear, you can either pin the braid as is or finish it by braiding it without adding any hair. To do this, you just take a small part of each section of the braid and cross it under, adding it to the opposite section until there’s no more hair left. Once the braid is pinned, you can either pull gently on it to give it more volume, or leave as is.
Style Four: Pull-Through Braided Topper
Before you begin this style, make sure you have a few small plastic hair elastics. They can be any color you prefer. I like clear ones as they’re not as noticeable once the style is complete.
To start, you first need to take a small section of hair, making sure there is a blend of your own hair and the hair of the topper. Take that section and secure it with an elastic, about an inch to an inch and a half from the root of it. Then take that small ponytail and secure it out of the way.
Next, leading on from the first, take a second section of hair, a blend of your own hair and the topper hair, and secure it with an elastic band. Make sure you’re not securing the band too high or too low on the ponytail so that the braid will be evenly spaced when complete.
Unpin the first ponytail and divide the hair into two equal sections. Take those two sections and wrap them around the second ponytail, so that it’s sitting in the middle.
Pin the second ponytail out of the way and take the two sections of the first ponytail and add them into a new section of hair from your own hair and your topper. Secure this third ponytail with an elastic band.
Repeat the process with the second ponytail and continue until you’ve reached your desired placement. Secure the end of the braid with an elastic band. Wrap the braid around your head tautly and pin it in place.
Once the braid is secured, you can leave it as is or you can pull on the braid gently to create more volume. This not only hides the transition between your hair and the topper even more flawlessly, but it also will hide the elastic bands.
