  1. Location of hair loss

Observing where your hair loss is is a crucial step. The positions can be front, crown, part, and throughout. Different types of toppers correspond to it, which can directly fill the vacancies of some positions. 

  1. Choose the base types

Different types of topper base caps have their advantages and disadvantages. You must select them according to your requirements, preferences, skin types, etc. For example, lace, monofilament, and silk base are the three most popular topper bases. Here are some details about them.

  • Lace base


Natural- It closely simulates the appearance of the natural hairline, blending perfectly with your real hair.

Breathability- The lace base is considered the most breathable of the three bases because of its large pores, making it perfect for summer. 


Visible knots- It is easy to see the bottom braid knots around the hair dividing line because the base is transparent lace. 

  • Monofilament base


Comfortable- The Monofilament base is soft and comfortable, without any irritation. Therefore, it's suitable for women with sensitive scalp due to chemotherapy or other skin diseases.

Durable- It is extremely durable and has a long lifespan. In addition, it can change to suit your needs for great styling versatility. 


Breathability- It has a close tighter weave, so it is not as breathable as lace. 

  • Silk base


Natural- Silk base has the most realistic scalp look on the market nowadays. 

Styling versatility- It offers a variety of styling options as you can part the silk topper in any direction. 


Cumbersome wearing- It is not easy to lay flat on the head, and its wearing steps are relatively cumbersome because the silk base topper has multiple layers, and the crown is slightly bulky. 

Breathability- Due to its unique layered structure, silk base is less breathable than lace and Monofilament bases. However, wearing a silk base in winter is warmer than the other two bases.
