You know you have an amazing Boss Lady when she sends you surprise happy hair mail to review. Woot! Thank you Heather!
Hey y’all! Today I am reviewing the new Lace Front Mono Topper 6″ by BelleTress in the color Cappuccino with Cherry.
Before we get started, I want to show you how much biohair I’m working with. I use think that I really didn’t have much hair (like almost bald). I think my mind exaggerated the hair loss to an extreme because I had hair so thick it would break hair ties in my early teens. Yes, I know my biohair is thin but now 2 1/2 years into wearing hair, I’m ok with rockin’ the biohair most of the time. I began to realize that most people weren’t looking at my hair when they would look at me. But since I’ve worked for a wig company during this time, my eyes were opened and I could see how many woman also had thin hair or sometimes who else was wearing a wig.
I have to be honest though, my lifestyle is pretty laid back as an extreme-part time blogger and stay-at-home-mom. I now wear my hair when I’m out of my comfort zone aka when I’m not wearing yoga pants.
With biohair this long, toppers are my preference since wigs really do fit better and more securely with little to no biohair. My first BelleTress toppers were ordered in May 2017 and they were AMAZING. Everything we love about BelleTress were also featured in the toppers. The hair had natural volume and the colors were beautiful. The lengths available were all long so I bought them while my hair was still short from having buzzed my hair.
But now BelleTress has come out with the 6″ topper!! I really wish I had this back then!
This 6″ topper has listed measurements of bangs at 5″, sides at 5″, and the back at 6″.
The base was closer to 6.5″ side-to-side and 6″ from front-to-back.
The color Heather selected for me was the Cappuccino with Cherry described as “Warm dark brown with medium and dark auburn blended highlights”. I really love these blended highlights because they are subtle in a not-in-your-face natural look.
If my biohair were a few inches shorter, the Cappuccino with Cherry would blend in so well. But look at how awesome the natural volume this topper has!
Keep in mind that this topper is a heat friendly piece. That means you could style it with a curler or wear it while cooking with guests without fear of frying the hair. But all that goodness means that the hair requires a little bit of product hair care TLC.
This topper has a lace front so there is not a front clip. I can start the day with the topper feeling secure and looking natural with the lace front. As the day goes on, it will slowly slide back because my biohair gets pretty oily. Ugh… The blue tape really helps and the Lace Let Go is used when it is time to remove it since you don’t want to pull to hard on the lace front or pull on your biohair.
I hope this helps and that you would consider this or any of the BelleTress toppers if you are in the market for one. This particular 6″ length would look gorgeous on someone with biohair that’s chin length or shorter. BelleTress toppers and wigs are very natural looking with realistic volume and well done lace front hair line.
