After suffering early to mid-stages of hair loss for the past few years, finding toppers has been a dream come true! A medical solution was no longer going to cut it, so finding a cosmetic alternative has been life-changing.
Loving Color 12FS8
This Jon Renau EasiPart in 12FS8 was a perfect match for my hair colour. The rooting gives it a very natural look and the blonde is the ashy tone I prefer. This piece provides me the right amount of coverage, adding volume but not so much that it doesn't look like my own hair. The quality of the base is up to scratch and the hair is soft!
The secure clips mean the EasiPart is easy to put in place and remove, and the style of knotting gives a very natural appearance of a scalp. There are even baby hairs cut in at the front, so it's ready to wear! The human hair provides more options for styling - able to take heat and product. This does mean it requires some looking after, but I actually find the washing and styling process very therapeutic.
If I could change something about the piece it would be reducing the red tone the root colour throws off in the natural light. I much prefer a dull brown for roots. However, the EasiPart is really a solution for women not ready to take the plunge into wigs; A topper is like hair extensions for the top of your head. If you're thinking about stepping into the world of alternative hair, the EasiPart is a great starting point.
Back-up Ready with color 14/24
The Jon Renau EasiPart 12inch in colour 14/24 is high quality human hair topper with impressive base size perfect for beginning to mid-stages of hair loss. I ordered this colour knowing I would need custom rooting added to give it a more natural feel, which I have yet to do. I have ordered this piece before and know colored dye takes to it well. I can't wait to match this piece to my natural bio hair colour.
I much prefer the pieces that already have rooting, but if you are looking to create an exact match, it can be easier to choose a piece without rooting; this gives more flexibility for your stylist when it comes to colouring. I would love to see the EasiPart come in a 14inch somewhere down the line! Buying an 18inch to cut just seems like a waste.
