Difference between Wigs, Hair Toppers and Hair Extensions :
Hair toppers are different from wigs as it only covers certain scalp areas on the head and blend with the existing natural hair to give a fuller look. Again hair toppers are available in different sizes (measurements), colours and types. Hair toppers have clips underneath them which you have to clip with your natural hair to set properly. Hair extensions are small portions of hair strands with one clip to set with your natural hair. Hair extensions can be used under the natural hair to add extra volume to the existing hair. Again hair toppers and hair extensions are also available in human hair form and synthetic hair form.
