How to Choose Your Hair Topper Colour

hair topper colour

As well as choosing the right base and size topper for you, you also need it to match your hair colour as closely as possible. Some shades can be quite tough to match, so sometimes choosing the right colour topper can be a little tricky.

We’ve put together this guide that will hopefully make it easier for you.

Here’s how to choose your hair topper colour.

Send us a selfie!

Take a few photos of your hair in natural light and send them to me via email at or DM on Facebook or Instagram, then I can recommend a colour match for you. This is a good option in times like we’re in now, when you can’t physically see me or get to the salon.

Use a colour ring to judge your perfect shade

A colour ring comes in really handy when you want to find the right colour hair topper. We can send you one, just get in touch. Then all that’s left to do is compare the colour swatches against your natural hair to find your perfect shade.

Tips for finding a topper that matches your hair colour

  • If you’re having a hard time matching your natural hair colour exactly, I would recommend buying a light coloured hair topper (like platinum which makes a great colour base) then dyeing it to match your hair.
  • Sometimes, toppers can be difficult to colour match, but there’s nothing stopping you from dyeing your natural hair if you find a topper you love in a gorgeous colour.
  • You’ll get a more accurate colour match if you match the topper to the exact shade of the hair that’s on top of your head (usually 1-2 inches from the front hairline). Remember that your hair can be lighter and slightly darker in places, for example, the hair that frames your face is often lighter.
