Hair Toppers: Solution to hair loss

(WFLX) - An estimated 40 million American women have hair loss while others just want more. We've found an easy fix that could glam up your look in minutes.

"If you wanna be a diva in five minutes, honey, this is the thing to wear," said former soap opera actress Amy Gibson. She lost all her hair as a teen and has been designing wigs ever since.

She says she's stunned by the response to her latest offering. "Hair toppers are it; they are it."

Amy explains hair toppers are hair pieces that are designed to pump up volume a woman has lost or never had. "It adds security for a woman when she's feeling like she knows where her hair was a couple years ago but it's not now."

Cindy's a perfect example. She already has hair extensions to make her hair longer. This one was customized to blend in. With combs and clips it snaps into place. Then, you comb over your own hair combing over the piece. The process takes about 10 minutes.

Custom cut and colored human hair topper can cost as much as $1,500, but if you're ok with an off-the-shelf synthetic hairpiece, you can get a headband attached topper for $50 to $75.
