I’ve had a few ladies email me and ask if I can wear my clip in hairpieces (toppers) in a ponytail. YES! This is one of the main reasons that I am loving them right now instead of a full wig. The nice thing about clip in hairpieces, too, is that you can adjust them ever-so-slighty as well, depending on the hairstyle you are trying to achieve.
The most important thing is to find a clip-in hairpiece that is close to your bio hair’s color. There’s no big deal at all if your bio hair is slightly darker; that’s a pretty natural look, actually, since the sun tends to lighten the top layers of your hair.
Here is my Milan topper (color: Marble Brown) in a traditional ponytail. The base of the Milan is larger, so I was worried that a pony wouldn’t be possible but it totally is!
I just love having a thicker ponytail with my clip in hairpieces, rather than one that is the width of a pencil!
Here is my Amore Long Top Piece (color: Medium Brown) in a messy up-do type thing.
And then a quick peek at the look from the front, as well.
Clip in hairpieces can definitely be worn in a ponytail/up quite easily (in fact, if you bond, you can achieve the same result). This isn’t necessarily the same when it comes to wigs, so, for now, I’m rocking the topper full-time.
It’s really easy if you wear your hair similar to mine, with the front area that is kind of “swoopy”. Obviously, since there is a rim on these pieces, it’s very difficult to wear them with your bangs straight back (unless you are wearing the topper set back away from your hairline, which some women do. Unfortunately, my front hairline is too weak to do that).
See how easy it is to replicate your old bio-hair look with these clip in hairpieces (and, I’m sure, many others)? So, if you’re teeter-tottering about getting a topper but you are worried about your styling options, fear not! You definitely still have some ways you can wear your new hair, aside from just down!
