A perfect toupee should be well-fitting and match your head shape. It is also important that the hair on it looks natural, as you do not want people to believe you are wearing an artificial hairpiece. 

The most crucial aspect of purchasing one will likely come down to personal preference: some may prefer a sleek look while others may like something that gives extra voluminous and visibly bouncy locks.

Whichever style your client prefers, as a salon owner, hairstylist, or hairpiece distributor, your job is to find them exceptional quality toupees at affordable prices.

Toupee for women (2)

Losing your hair can be a difficult and emotionally charged experience. Their hair loss is a visible sign of aging that can be hard to accept for many women. While medical treatments are available to help slow down or stop hair loss, these options are not for everyone. Some women choose to cover their baldness with a toupee.

Toupees have come a long way from the awkward, artificial-looking wigs of the past. Today’s toupees are much more natural-looking and can provide an effective solution for covering up baldness.

Women’s wigs and hairpieces have been around for centuries, but the modern toupee came about in the 1950s. Today, they are used by millions of women worldwide to enhance their appearance and confidence.

There are many different types of toupees available on the market today. Women wear these toupees for several reasons.

Toupees help women cover the hair loss and hair thinning by hiding bald spots and providing additional volume. These hairpieces work better for women suffering from female pattern baldness or losing hair for any other reason, including medical ailments and environmental factors.

With all the hair restoration options available on the market today, it’s no wonder that many women are looking into toupees as a possible solution for their thinning hair. But what exactly is a toupee, and how does it work?

Let’s take a closer look at women’s toupees – what they are, how they work, and whether or not they are right for your customers.

What are Toupees for Women?

Toupee for women (3)

Toupee is a relatively smaller hairpiece worn above the crown to hide bald spots, hair loss, or to cover hair thinning.

Some women wear toupees for aesthetic purposes- to enhance their overall look and to add volume to naturally thin hair. Toupees help in achieving versatile hairstyles and hair looks that were previously a dream due to limited hair volume and length.

Topped with a toupee, your client’s personality will be instantly enhanced, so help them achieve their desired looks by offering a top-quality toupee for women.


Types of Toupee for Women

When selecting the fabric for a woman’s toupee, there are a few things to take into consideration. The most important factor is how the toupee will be worn. If it will be worn every day, then a more durable fabric is needed. If it is only worn occasionally, then a softer fabric can be used.

Here are some of the most popular fabrics for women’s toupees that define various toupee types.

Skin Base Toupee

The skin toupee is made of beautifully crafted fabric that has the appearance and feel of a real human scalp. It looks natural, but many people are surprised when you tell them there is nothing growing out of your head and you are wearing a toupee.

The silicone material is used to create the base of the toupee. This material looks like real human skin and feels very comfortable against the scalp. The toupee is ideal for women who have a sensitive scalp, and even the slightest pressure can increase itchiness or dryness over the scalp.

Lace Base Toupee

This toupee is made from the softest lace fabric and has small holes for increased ventilation. The base cap, side panels as well as an adjustable strap make this product comfortable to wear all day long.

Each hair strand is hand-tied to the base in order to maximize its realistic look. Over these knotted strands, another small piece of lace or silk is attached to cover them up perfectly. The lace toupee is, however, delicate thus requires extra care and maintenance. These toupees are best for occasional wear and for festive gatherings to achieve a more formal look.

You may find lace toupee a bit pricier than other types; however, the price tag is justified when you factor in the quality and realistic look.

Monofilament Base Toupee

This is the perfect solution for clients who have sensitive scalps. Monofilament toupees are made of a material called monofilament, which has an intricate meshed texture. These hairpieces have an ultra-thin fabric for lightweight and breathability that makes them look very realistic when installed.

Each hair strand is either hand-tied or injected into the base, which creates an illusion of naturally growing hair from the scalp. Monofilament base offers a natural appearance that is hard to beat for many types of toupee.

Medical Toupee

Medical toupee or cranial prosthesis are specifically designed for those who have lost hair due to medical reasons and now have an overly sensitive scalp. Medical toupees are made with lightweight material to give the wearer a hairpiece that does not cause extra pressure over an already sensitive scalp.

The client undergoing chemo or radiation therapy can easily wear this type of toupee when the hair loss is in the beginning stage. The toupee will sit on the wearer’s head without creating extra pressure or itchiness. Clients with dermatitis or scalp psoriasis can also benefit from medical toupees.

Combination Cap Toupee

Some of the most popular types are those that look and feel just like real human hair. They’re made from a mix-and-match combination, giving you options to customize your style however you want.

Monofilament base can be combined with PU sides to create a toupee that outshines both longevity and natural appearance. For women wanting a natural hairline combined with skin base, lace base, and skin base combination cap would be perfect. For combination caps, lifespan is the limit. PU sides can also be attached to any type of base to increase durability.

Ask your clients to imagine a perfect toupee base for them, and Bono Hair will customize one like a hair genie.

Synthetic Toupee

Knowing all About Toupee For Women (19)

As the name shows, synthetic toupees are made with man-made synthetic fiber. The fiber is crafted after chemically treating the plastic until it achieves the desired look. Synthetic fiber is not only cheaper but more durable than human hair. However, it lacks a natural finish and feels when it comes to the hair texture.

Synthetic toupees made with newer technologies often look extremely natural, and it is hard for others to differentiate between real human hair and synthetic hair. Synthetic hair is slightly thicker than natural human hair, so the toupee might feel heavier.

Human Hair Toupee

To achieve a natural appearance, most toupees are created from human hair. The human fiber of high quality also has a realistic appearance.

Human hair toupee is made with genuine human hair. Remy hair, Indian hair, and Chinese virgin human hair are the topmost priorities when it comes to manufacturing human hair toupees. These toupees look and feel like natural human hair.

The toupee hair blends in beautifully with natural hair to give the wearer an additional volume and coverage. However, these toupees are more delicate than synthetic toupees, thus requiring extra maintenance.


Difference between Toupees and Wigs for Women

Knowing all About Toupee For Women (16)

The main purpose of a wig is to cover the entire head, while toupees are used only to add volume and hide initial hair loss.

Wigs and toupees are great for those who want to look good with their natural hair but don’t have the budget or time necessary. These hairpieces can give you that fullness instantly while being less expensive than transplants or surgeries.

While both serve a different purpose, which one is better depends on your client’s requirement. If your client is looking for a hairpiece to hide baldness or progressive hair loss, a wig would be better.

Similarly, if your client requires a solution to fix hair thinning or to hide a visible receding hairline at the front, a toupee would be perfect. Toupee is also used when the client only wants to increase hair length and hair volume.

Here are a few differences between wigs and toupees,

Difference in Manufacturing

Knowing all About Toupee For Women (1)

Wigs and toupees are both popular hairpieces, but they have different features. Wig coverage is universal; this means that a wig will cover your entire head with natural or synthetic fibers attached to an elastic band for support (and sometimes also covering thinning areas). On the other hand, toupees only go over the top of the scalp providing partial coverage.

Difference in Style

Wigs come in many different styles to match any personal preference, but toupees are limited by what hairstyle they can imitate with their base material.

Hair Strands

Wigs and toupees are mostly made from real human hair and styled to look like natural hair. Often wigs and toupees are made of synthetic materials, such as nylon or polyester, and designed to cover balding. However, both can be customized according to the preference of clients.

Coverage Difference

Wigs are hairpieces that are made of human or synthetic hair and can be styled to match the wearer’s natural hair, while toupees are wig-like pieces of similar material but are relatively smaller. Wigs cover the entire head, while toupee only covers a smaller area.

Price Difference

Since a wig is a relatively larger hairpiece, manufacturing a full wig requires more time and effort; thus, wigs cost more than toupee. Crafting a toupee takes half the time required to stitch a wig justifying the lower price.

Weight Difference

Toupee is smaller in size than a wig; therefore, it is lighter in weight. Wigs are full headpieces to provide full coverage. More hair strands are attached to the base of a wig, making it slightly heavier than a toupee.


How to Keep on a Toupee for Women

First, be sure to get a good quality toupee that will look natural and blend in with your hair. Second, make sure you take care of it properly to last as long as possible.

Here are some tips on how to keep your toupee looking great:

Knowing all About Toupee For Women (3)

1) Make sure you select the right color and style for your hair type. If you have thinning hair, go for a style and color that will add volume. Choose a deep-colored toupee to avoid looking too unnatural if your hair is dark.

2) Trimmed properly, a toupee can last for years. Trimming also helps in keeping frizz and dullness at bay, so trim your toupee as needed.

3) Choose the right toupee for your head shape. Always give the correct measurements while purchasing any hairpiece.

4) Make sure the toupee is made of quality materials. Do not fall for poor-quality material to save a few bucks. Good quality toupee lasts longer, saving the money ahead.

5) Secure the toupee in place with hair clips, adhesive tape, or a wig cap. If you are a beginner, select a toupee that has built-in clips or strap fixes to avoid mishaps. 

6) Style the toupee to match your own hairstyle.

7) Brush and comb the toupee regularly to keep it looking neat and tidy. Use a wide-tooth wooden brush to avoid knots and tangles.

8) Wash and condition the toupee every few weeks. Washing frequency depends upon the usage of the toupee. Greater the usage, the higher the washing frequency.


How to Care for a Toupee for Women

If you want to increase the longevity of your toupee, follow these steps;

Avoid Over Washing

Over-washing can ruin your toupee. While there is no set frequency to wash a toupee, and it must be decided by the user, keeping a tab at the toupee’s base condition can be a telltale sign to wash the hairpiece.

When the toupee base starts looking dull or dry, and debris starts to accumulate, give your toupee a good wash with a mild shampoo. Always use lukewarm water as the extreme temperature can deteriorate the texture of the toupee.

Avoid blow-drying as much as possible. Let the toupee be air-dried to retain natural hair texture.

Avoid Using Conditioners or Creams

Some people think that hair masks are a great idea for those who have wigs or toupees, but the truth is they can actually damage the toupee fabric. The formulas can loosen up hair knots, causing the toupee hair to fall off.

Even if the toupee is made with human hair, do remember that the hair is attached to an artificial scalp and lacks the capacity to absorb chemicals or extra moisture. Toupee hair does not require heavy moisturizing masks, creams, or oils in order to shine.

Slathering oils or heavier hair creams can look the toupee weighing down and dull.

Avoid Using Heating Tools

If you’re a wig or toupee wearer, you know that one of the biggest enemies of your hairpiece is heat. Whether it is from styling tools or the sun, too much warmth can cause serious damage to the toupee.

Limit sun exposure and heat exposure. Always spray heat protectant generously on the toupee before stepping outside or styling the toupee hair with heating tools.

Too much exposure to heat can damage your hair and cause it to frizz. To keep your wig or toupee looking its best, avoid excessive heat whenever possible.

Remove the Toupee before Sleeping

It is important to remember that a toupee is not meant to be worn overnight. In fact, there are several good reasons why you should remove your toupee before going to bed.

Your scalp needs to breathe. Wearing a toupee all day long can prevent your scalp from getting the air it needs. At night, take off your toupee and give your head a chance to breathe.

You could damage your hairline by wearing a toupee 24/7, as it will affect natural hair regrowth. Wearing a toupee while sleeping will also damage the toupee hair due to friction between hair and the pillow.

Store the Toupee Properly when not Using

As a professional toupee manufacturer in the hair replacement industry, we often get asked how to properly care for a toupee when not in use. The answer is pretty simple: store your toupee in an air-tight box.

Doing this will keep your toupee fresh and free of any dust or dirt that could accumulate over time. This will also ensure that the toupee is ready to go whenever you need it.

Instruct your clients to store it away in an air-tight box when they are not using it!

When it comes to hair loss, there are a lot of different solutions out there. For some people, surgery may be an option. However, for others, something as simple as wearing a toupee can help cover up baldness and give the appearance of a full head of hair.

Toupees are a popular option for women who want to hide their hair thinning and hair loss. They come in many different styles, colors, and textures so that you can find the perfect one for you. If your clients are considering getting a toupee, make sure to talk to them regarding the best style and color for them.

Also, guide them about the difference between a wig and a toupee so that they would be able to make a better decision while ordering their hairpiece. Toupees tend to be smaller in size and are often attached using adhesives or clips. If your client is looking for a full coverage hairpiece, go for a wig, but if they need something that only provides extra volume, is light in weight, and will stay put all day long, choose a toupee. Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference and needs.

Toupee is best for lighter coverage and hair thinning, while wigs work wonders for those who have progressive hair loss or total pattern baldness.

As a salon expert, hairpiece distributor, or wholesale supplier, the most difficult part is to find the quality that would satisfy your customer, increasing your sales in the longer run. If you provide a bad quality toupee, customers would never repurchase, so choosing the right manufacturer is most crucial in the hairpiece business.
