Men's Hair Toppers FAQs
● What is a men's hair topper?
A men's hair topper is a solution to hair loss that uses a material base with human hair attached to it. Once stuck on the scalp, it looks just like real hair and can be worn whilst sleeping, swimming and doing other forms of exercise. A men’s hair topper covers the top crown area of the head, where most men experience initial balding, it does not cover the sides and nape.
A men's hair topper consists of a base and hair. The base can be made from polyurethane (a plastic, food wrap-like material), lace or mono (a sturdy fiber netting). Men’s hair toppers are one of the best ways to restore hair due to hair loss, and achieve a full head of natural looking hair.

● How long can I wear a men’s hair topper for?
Anywhere between 1 month to a year. The lifespan of a men’s hair topper depends on material type and how well the user cares and maintains his men’s hair topper. Polyurethane thin skin men’s hair toppers last from 1-2 months. Thicker polyurethane bases mixed with lace can last from 2-4 months and mono bases (a sturdy fibrous netting) can last 5 months and up. The lifespan of a men’s hair topper is also influenced by how well it is cared for. If it is removed delicately with a debonder and hairs are not pulled at, but brushed carefully, then a hair system can last much longer.
It is important to note that after a certain time, the men’s hair topper will become less dense because hair will naturally fall out. However, even when the hair sheds, it is still possible to wear the hair system until you reach the point where the density becomes too thin for your preference. Some men have purchased a medium density men’s hair topper and wore it until it became a light density men’s hair topper due to hair system shedding.Past this point, it is time to replace your hair patch with a fresh, new year.
● Does a men’s hair topper fall off?
No, a men’s hair topper will not fall off. Attached with wig tape or glue, they stay on the head for up to a month, when it is removed, cleaned and reattached. You can swim, shower and sleep in a men’s hair topper, you can even drive at 60 mph in a men’s hair topper! For the duration it is on your head, it will not fly off, and a men’s hair topper needs to be removed carefully, with debonding spray and a hairdryer.

● Do I need to shave to wear a hair topper for a thinning crown?
Not necessarily. Most men do, but you can choose a clip-on men’s hair topper. When sticking on a men’s hair topper with toupee tape or toupee glue, you will shave the areas of stumble or thinning hair that must be removed to be able to place the glue on the scalp. You should ensure that your scalp is smooth, hair-free and moisture-free when you stick your men’s hair topper on. You can use an alcohol spray to help make the scalp dry. This means that when you stick your hairpiece on with glue or tape, there is no moisture and it will ensure it will stay on/feel comfortable for longer.
● Does hair grow through on a men’s hair topper?
Yes, it does. You may be worried about hair growing through when wearing a men’s hair topper. The truth is it does. You cannot stop biological processes, yet is hair regrowth under a hair system dangerous to your body? No, it isn’t! This is because, especially when wearing a lace based system, hair can still grow through.
Wearing a hair system may or may not be conducive to the health of the new strands growing through, but there is currently no research to suggest it causes any damage. Additionally, these are the strands of hair that have been thinning, that you shave off and cover up with the hair patch. The scalp does not undergo any damage when wearing a men’s hair topper.
When you remove your men’s hair topper once a month for cleaning, you will simply shave the small amount of regrowth, which tends to be thin and short.
● How much does a men’s hair topper cost?

● I messed up my lace men’s hair topper hairline?
When you glue the lace front on our men’s hair topper, you will want to first glue your scalp, NOT your hair system. That will lead to glue becoming stuck right in the lace holes. Glue your scalp, wait for a minute or two until it is sticky to the touch before pushing down your hair system.
If you have glue stuck in your men’s hair topper, you can get it out by putting the hair patch down on a flat marble surface. Use alcohol or lace wig glue remover (which should be alcohol based) and, using a tooth brush and cotton swaps, clean out the glue from the system softly. Afterwards give the whole men’s hair topper a wash with soft shampoo.
● Which men’s hair topper is the best for a natural hair line?
A French lace front men’s hair topper or a 0.03 thin skin with a v-looped knotting method are the most popular men’s hair toppers for a natural hair line. The v-loop has no actual knot as hair is pulled through the skin and not tied, making it look like you have real hair, even from up VERY close.
French lace hair patches feature a “staggered” hairline, whereby the front line is not a singular row of hair knotted in an orderly line. This reflects an actual hairline on a real scalp. Even more natural a front line is Swiss lace, yet due to being incredibly delicate most men prefer French lace as it is more durable whilst being natural enough to look real from up close.
● Where can I buy a gray men’s hair topper?
Lordhair offers gray men’s hair toppers, with gray making up anywhere from 1%-100% gray! Stock hair toppers come ready to ship with 10-90% gray options at 10% intervals.
Many men wearing men’s hair toppers with a solid color and no grey, with goatees and beards that contain a heavy percentage of gray are susceptible to looking fake, or one would think you dyed your hair. For a perfect blend, some gray in the hair patch is best.
● What to do if my men’s hair topper is too shiny?
Wash it a couple of times. Many men actually like the shininess of the men’s hair topper, however some men prefer a less shiny look, which occurs after several washes. If your men’s hair topper starts to loose it’s shine but you want to retain it, using some Moroccan oil on your men’s hair topper will help to revive the shine. Do not use too much, as it can look greasy.
● What men’s hair topper is good for the gym?
A breathable French lace men’s hair topper is best for the gym, such as the Lordhair Champion. This not only looks natural, the holes in the lace let sweat sweep out, meaning the glue will not go “gloopy” due to sustained contact with sweat. Therefore a lace men’s hair topper is the best option for men who do sport or experience excess scalp sweat.
