    So first I had the top wave, which just had so much poof. I will use it for up-do's and messy buns though so it's still useable. Took Drift3r's advice (thanks so much!) and got the top secret in yesterday. I loved it- but it was sooooo much longer than my hair, which I knew it would be. I got it cut today! She almost went a wee bit too short, but it's fine because I kept telling her it's too long! Still too long! Then it was a tad bit too short (of course I didn't tell her that, she was just doing what i asked her to do). I'm a bit neurotic about my hair, I'm sure you guys can all relate. :joke: So what do you guys think? I'm happy with it, it looks much more "like me" when I look in the mirror. I do have a question. Everyone in real life says they can't see the topper line where my hair line meets, but it's the first thing I see. What do you guys think, or do, to cover that line up?

    It looks really cute. I use Joan Rivers great hair day powder to fill in around my hairline. It gives the appearance of thicker hair. It helps hide the toppers rim. You can also pull some of your bio hair out with a rat tail comb and blend. For me it’s always the first thing I notice on myself too.

    It looks really good. And yes, we get the part about worrying if it looks natural or wack. We are always quick to scrutinize what we see in that mirror. Write yourself an encouraging sticky note and pit it on your mirror. It helps!

    Heather!!!!!!! You look INCREDIBLE!!! This looks so perfect on you and your stylist did an amazing job with the cut! You have me tempted to chop one of mine shorter now. It’s such a great look :smile: ...

    I really don’t think other people will notice the hairline but there are a few tricks you can use to hide it. I usually draw a part and then take just a tiny bit of hair from the dominant side and part it the other direction right up front to kind of blend it together. And @KellyA has a really great trick where she twists some of here bio hair with the topper hair and puts a bobby pin in it to one side. Regardless of all those little tricks, I’m so happy you love it and ultimately feel more like yourself in this. I’m really happy for you and always here if you need anything at all. Us topper sisters gotta stick together, eh?? :heart:
