With Daniel Alain hair pieces, you can achieve voluminous, enviable locks in an instant.

Unlike our human hair wigs, hair pieces are designed to add volume or coverage to specific areas on the top of your head. Also called topettes, toppers, toupées, and postiches, these game-changing pieces quickly and easily attach to your existing hair via clips so you can simply pop them on and go. 

Our hair pieces for women come in a variety of colors, styles, and lengths to suit your needs. And because they're made with real human hair, they're incredibly versatile. You can wear them in any style you want, whether you're looking for a sleek and straight look or big and bouncy curls. Updos, ponytails, and even braids are all fair game.

Best of all, our human hair pieces for women are made with the same high-quality human hair as our wigs, so you can expect the same level of luxury, realism, and durability. Daniel Alain's expert wigmakers hand-tie every strand of our premium 100% European hair—which is sourced from the world's only private reserve—to our lightweight and breathable Swiss lace bases. The result is hair that is not only unbelievably realistic but also incredibly comfortable to wear.

With a base size of 6" x 6.5", this hairpiece is perfect for those who want to add length, volume, or both to their existing mane.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Difference Between a Wig & Hair Piece?

While both hair pieces and wigs are great additions that can enhance your overall look and conceal hair loss, there are a few key differences between the two.

Wigs are made with a full cap that covers your entire head, while toppers only cover small sections on the top of your head. This makes women's hair pieces much lighter and cooler to wear, as they don't cover as much of your scalp. 

Hair pieces are also generally less expensive than wigs and easier to put in and take out.

What Are the Different Types of Hair Pieces for Women?

With so many innovative hairpieces on the market, it can be tough to keep track of all the different types. Here's a quick rundown of some of the most popular hair pieces for women:

  • Switches: a section of hair that's attached with a loop to create a ponytail or braid.
  • Diamond Mesh: a longer weft of hair that's sewn in a diamond pattern and attaches to an existing ponytail to increase the length.
  • Half-Wig: hair that's attached to a mesh half-cap that sits either just behind or directly on top of your crown to create more fullness and length.
  • Halo Weft: a  weft of hair that's attached to an invisible wire that sits on your hairline to add more length.
  • Hair Weft Extensions: hair that's sewn in long, continuous weft pieces that can be clipped in to add length and fullness.
  • Clip-In Toppers: hair that's attached to a small, lightweight clip that can be easily placed on your head to conceal hair loss.

What is a Women's Hair Piece Called?

Women's hair pieces have been given a wide and colorful variety of names, such as:

  • Topette
  • Topper
  • Topée
  • Postiche
  • Wiglet

What is a Female Hair Topper?

A hair topper is a women's hair piece that's designed to cover small sections of hair loss. Toppers come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles to match your existing hair, and they can be easily clipped in place on the top of your scalp for a natural and undetectable look.

What are Hair Wiglets?

Another word for women's hair pieces, wiglets are small toppers that add volume or coverage to your existing hair. They're usually made with human hair, which allows them to be styled just like your own hair. You can choose from a variety of colors and styles to find the perfect match for your hair, and they can be easily clipped in place.

What is a Partial Wig Called?

Partial wigs are often referred to as hair pieces or wiglets. They cover only a small section of your head, usually the crown or hairline. Partial wigs are a great option if you're looking for a little bit of coverage without the weight or commitment of a full wig.

What is a Small Hair Piece Called?

A small hair piece is also called a hairpiece or wiglet. Similar to all toppers, small hair pieces are designed to conceal and minimize signs of thinning or bald spots.  They're a great alternative to wigs if you're looking for something that's lighter and cooler to wear.

How Long Can a Hair Piece Stay On?

You can wear one of Daniel Alain's women's human hair pieces all day. Our pressure-sensitive clips are gentle on your hair and scalp, and they'll stay securely in place for hours.

Just make sure to remove your hair piece when you go to sleep. Sleeping in a topper will likely result in tangles and matting, and can damage both your hair and the topper itself.

What Makes a Women's Hair Piece High-Quality?

There are a lot of factors that go into making a high-quality hair piece. The hair should be made from 100% real human hair, which will give you the most natural look and feel. European hair is the highest quality hair on the market, so that's what we use at Daniel Alain.

The hair should also be cuticle correct, meaning that the hair shafts are all aligned in the same direction. This helps to prevent tangling and makes the strands look shiny and healthy.

Finally, the hair should be hand-tied onto a lace or mesh base. This creates a natural hairline that's undetectable and ensures that the hair piece will last for years with proper care.

What Kind of Hair Pieces for Women Looks Most Natural?

Human hair pieces for women will always look more natural than synthetic hair pieces. That's because human hair can be styled just like your own hair, so it will blend in seamlessly.

Synthetic wiglets tend to look fake and can be difficult to style. Rarely do they match your hair color perfectly, so they can look unnatural and obvious.

If you're looking for the most natural-looking topper possible, choose one that's made from 100% real European human hair.

What Type of Women's Hair Pieces is Most Comfortable?

Small hair pieces are usually the most comfortable type of hairpiece, as they're lightweight and don't cover a large area of your head.

Wiglets are also comfortable, but they can be a little bit warmer to wear since they cover more of your head.

Full wigs tend to be the least comfortable type of hairpiece, as they can be heavy and hot to wear. However, they offer the most coverage and can be a good option if you're looking for something that will stay in place all day long.

No matter what type of women’s hair piece you choose, it's important to find one that's made from high-quality materials. This will help to ensure that it's comfortable to wear and will last for years with proper care.

At Daniel Alain, our women's human hair pieces are all constructed with a silky soft Swiss lace base. Our hair is also cuticle correct and hand-tied onto the base, so it's gentle on your hair and scalp. This makes our wiglets as breathable and comfortable as they are beautiful.

How Much Does a Women's Hair Piece Cost?

The price of a hair piece depends on a few factors, including the type of hair used, the construction, and the quality.

At Daniel Alain, we only use 100% real European hair in our women's human hair pieces. This is the highest quality hair on the market, so it comes with a higher price tag. 

Our collection of women's hair pieces ranges from $1,242 to $5,123, and we have monthly payment plans available to make your purchase more affordable.

How Long Does a Hair Piece for Women Last?

With proper care, a Daniel Alain hair piece can last for years. The lifespan of your wiglet depends entirely on how you take care of it.

To extend the life of your hair piece, we recommend that you:

  • Only use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to brush and detangle
  • Wash it with a mild shampoo and conditioner at least once a week if you wear it every day (you can wash it less frequently if you're only wearing it occasionally)
  • Store it on a wig stand when you're not wearing it
  • Avoid sleeping or swimming
  • Expose it to as few heat-based tools as possible

How Do You Maintain a Women's Hair Piece?

Caring for a hair piece is similar to caring for your own hair. You should shampoo and condition it regularly, using products that are specifically designed for human hair wigs and wiglets. 

With proper care, your postiche will last for years and continue to look natural and beautiful. Our team of experts are always on-hand to answer any questions you have regarding the care and maintenance of your new wiglet.

What Do I Need to Know Before Buying a Hair Piece?

When choosing a hair piece, it's important to keep in mind the following: 

  • Your hair color
  • Your hair texture
  • The size of the hairpiece
  • The style of the hairpiece 
  • The coverage you need and which stage of hair loss you're in
  • How much volume you want

Finding the right wiglet can be a daunting task, but our team of experts is here to help. We offer a free consultation to help you choose the best hair piece for your needs, and we even offer a free Fit Kit so you can try on our topettes in the comfort of your couch.

Where Can I Buy Women's Hair Pieces?

Thanks to the internet, there are a million and one places you can buy hair pieces for women. However, not all toppers are created equal.

When choosing a hair piece, it's important to make sure that you're buying from a reputable source. A good place to start is by reading reviews from other customers.

We may be biased, but at Daniel Alain, we pride ourselves on our high-quality toppers and excellent customer service. We truly believe that we offer the best hair pieces for women on the market.

What are the Different Types of Human Hair Pieces?

As you now know, human hair is far superior to synthetic hair in terms of quality and realism. But where the strands are sourced also makes a difference.

European Hair

The most high-quality hair on the market comes from Europe. This hair is prized for its thickness, luster, and overall health. Because it's the top 10% of hair in the world, it's also the most expensive and hard to find.

Indian Hair

Indian hair is another type of human hair that's often used in women’s hair pieces and wigs. It's less expensive than European hair, but it still has a good quality. Indian hair is more textured and thick, making it great for those seeking volume and a fuller look.

Asian Hair

Asian hair is also popular in the hair industry. It's often thinner than European hair but has a natural shine that many women love. While it's easy to find and more affordable, the way it's collected is cause for concern. Many Asian hair topettes are made with strands found in hairbrushes, pulled from drains, and swept off the floor. It's crucial to do your due diligence in researching hair vendors to make sure they have ethical hair-sourcing practices.

Virgin Hair

Everyone wants virgin hair, or hair that's never been treated with harsh chemicals, dyed, or heat-styled. While it's the most sought-after hair on the market, it's also the hardest to find. Most hair that's sold as virgin hair has actually been chemically processed in some way. So always be wary of hair that's too good to be true—it probably is.

Remy Hair

Remy hair refers to the method used to source the strands. Unlike unsavory "waste hair" practices, Remy hair has been cut from the donor's ponytail in a way that keeps the cuticles facing the same direction. This results in hair that's less likely to tangle, shed, or frizz.
