Watch My Mother's Hair Topper Transformation
If you're on the search for the perfect topper, don't give up – you're almost there! I always emphasise that straight out of the bag or box, a topper or wig is bound to look wiggy and less than stellar, regardless of how expensive it may be. It's only after proper styling that toppers and wigs truly come to life and look amazing. Just take a look at this video of my mother experiencing her first-ever topper.
We recently had a topper shoot, and I invited my mother to join at the last minute. What you witness in this video is real, unscripted, and captured all in one take (with a longer version soon to be released).
I must admit, I'm not a stylist, and this was my first time witnessing a cut-in with styling. I had the privilege of witnessing three cut-ins. Now I see how important it is to have your topper cut-in and styled. There are two essential aspects to this process: the styling, which includes parting the hair and washing (you can learn this yourself, and we have plenty of videos coming out soon), and the cut-in, which needs to be done by a professional.
So, don't give up on your journey. Ensure you get proper styling and a cut-in beforehand so that you can witness how amazing toppers can look. You might start hearing compliments from friends and family like, "Wow, you look amazing!" and "There's something different about you," as they try to figure out what it is. Our stylist in the video, Deborah, always says, "You don't need to tell anyone you're wearing a topper."
My jaw was on the floor while watching this cut-in on my mother. I initially thought I would notice the topper because I see her all the time, but after the cut-in and styling, I couldn't notice a thing. The transition was seamless, the density was perfect, and the colour was spot-on. Seeing her regularly and being involved in the creation of these toppers, I was genuinely impressed.
