Easy steps to putting on a hair topper


First, let's find a comfortable place to sit with good lighting so you can see what you're doing. Grab a brush, a comb, and your hair topper. Start by brushing your natural hair thoroughly to detangle any knots and ensure the topper attaches smoothly. If your hair is thin or slippery, using dry shampoo or a texturizing spray can give it more grip.


Step-by-Step Guide to Putting on a Hair Topper




Prepare the Topper: Start by opening all the clips on your hair topper. This makes it easier to attach without pulling at your natural hair.

Part Your Hair: Create a part in your hair where you'd like to position the topper. If your topper has a defined part, match it with your own.



Prepare your Natural Hair: If you prefer to style your natural hair to match the hair texture of the topper, curl or straighten your natural hair using hot tools and a thermal protectant. If you have enough hair, comb some of your natural hair forward to help blend the topper with your natural hairline, making it look more natural. 



Position the Topper: Holding the topper by the front, flip it over your head and align the part lines. Position the topper so that its front lies just behind your natural hairline or the front pieces you pulled out.

Attach the Front Clip: Press down on the front clips to secure it into your hair. Make sure it’s snug but not too tight.



Secure the Side and Back Clips: Once the front clips are in place, move on to the side and back clips. Secure them one at a time, ensuring the topper sits flat and isn't too tight on your natural hair.

Blend and Style: Brush through your hair and the topper to blend them together. You can style a human hair topper just like your natural hair using a flat iron or curling iron. Be sure to always use a high heat protectant.




And there you have it! You now know how to put on a hair topper and bring a fresh sense of confidence to your look. Remember, practice makes perfect, and with time, you'll be able to pop it on in minutes.
