It was a definite “yes” when I was asked to partner with Uniwigs. They saw my video on fine hair and thought I might benefit from a topper. Since the topper came longer than my hair, I wanted to have it cut so it would blend with my natural hairstyle. I am going to walk through the process from beginning to end. When my stylist was finished I felt like a million bucks.
Based on pictures they’d seen from my blog and video they sent me the 5.5″ x 5.5″ Claire Virgin Remy Human Hair Topper – Color: P25001-G-4 Medium Natural Brown, Length: 12″. When it arrived I was surprised how much the human hair topper felt like my own.
The first thing Patrick (my stylist) did was trim the back of my natural hair. Then he clipped the topper in and began his magic. The topper has a center part and I always part my hair to one side. No worries, we placed the topper asymmetrically on my head, matching it with my side part.
After the topper was cut, we colored my hair, because I like to wash that gray right out of my life. I don’t have a lot of gray, but what I have I don’t care for – it’s all front and center. I’m a huge fan of women choosing the path that makes them the happiest.
Then Patrick blew out and finished trimming my hair. I ran upstairs, while he cut my hubby’s hair and got dressed for the final stage. He wanted to add wave to the front of my natural hair before adding the topper.
He’s clipping the topper to my hair and checking to make sure it’s securely in place. I’m wondering if everything’s ok up there. Ha-ha. Once the topper is clipped in, it’s not moving.
We were discussing if we wanted to style it as I normally do, or try something different. Charleston is extremely humid in the summer and keeping a curl in fine hair is nearly impossible. We decided to give the topper, as well as my natural hair some wave with the curling iron. That’s one of the big benefits of having a topper. It holds the curl and gives me volume – that’s hard not to love.
Although I have a lot of hair, it’s super fine. A topper is a wonderful product if you are losing hair or just want to thicken up your own. When we were finished I felt so glamorous hubby had to take me out on the town.
Thank you Uniwigs for a great experience. And a very special thanks to my stylist Patrick Navarro. Especially for showing me how easy this is.
