Toppik Hair Building Fibers are the #1 selling cosmetic solution* for women and men to instantly transform fine or thinning hair. Since its inception, Toppik has built a strong reputation among celebrity stylists as Hollywood’s best-kept secret.

We’ll tell you how to make hair fibers stick, and share the best Toppik application tips.

How to Apply Toppik Hair Building Fibers

The Toppik brand was created in LA as a cosmetic solution for women and men with fine or thinning hair. Toppik Fibers are made with premium, naturally derived keratin proteins that are almost identical to human hair. The fibers have a natural static charge, which allows them to cling to even the tiniest hairs, for a natural look that lasts until you wash your hair.

Depending on the area you wish to cover, there are two main ways to apply Toppik Hair Building Fibers:

How to Apply Toppik to the Crown or Large Areas of Thinning

1. Start with dry, styled hair.
2. Remove cap from Toppik Hair Building Fibers, then shake onto thinning areas.
3. Gently pat hair to disperse the Fibers.
4. If desired, finish with a light mist of Toppik FiberHold Spray. FiberHold Spray strengthens the magnetic bond between Toppik Hair Building Fibers and hair strands for even longer-lasting results.

How to Apply Toppik to the Hairline or Small Areas of Thinning

1. Start with dry, styled hair.
2. Remove the sifter cap from Toppik Hair Building Fibers and replace with the Spray Applicator. The Spray Applicator works well for hard to reach places, part lines, and hairlines.
3. Use the spray nozzle to apply Toppik Hair Building Fibers as needed. For a natural-looking application along the hairline, use the Toppik Hairline Optimizer.

Top Toppik Application Tips

Once you’ve mastered the basics, try these other ways to apply Toppik!

1. The Finishing Touch

Our Hair Fibers aren’t limited to men and women with thin and thinning hair either; there are many different ways to use and apply this dynamic product. For example, you can use Hair Fibers to fill in part lines for a more polished updo or use Fibers to camouflage extension tracks.

2.Create a Natural-Looking Hairline

If you plan on using Hair Fibers closer to the hairline, we recommend using our Toppik Hairline Optimizer. Made of plastic with an irregular teeth pattern, this tool mimics your actual hairline, so you can apply Hair Fibers and still get a natural, even hairline. The Hairline Optimizer means there is no mess or spilled Hair Fibers along your hairline and forehead!

3.Customize Your Shade

We offer nine Hair Fiber colors that match almost any hair color, but if for some reason you can’t find your exact match, the best thing to do is mix more than one shade to create your exact color. One option is to pour both colors into a bowl, and mix until you get your desired color. You can then pour the contents back into a Hair Fibers bottle and apply as you normally would. Another way to mix colors together is to pour one of the colors into the second Hair Fibers bottle until you achieve the color you are looking for.

4. Apply in Layers

If your hair has two different colors in it, you can mix and match as stated in the tip above, or you can apply different Hair Fibers shades directly to your hair. Always make sure you apply the darker color first, then the lighter color. This technique works best for salt and pepper hair or hair with highlights.

5. Fibers to Go

If you’re traveling, we make the perfect travel-size Hair Fibers bottle so you’re never without this hair-perfecting product. Slip into your purse or carry-on and enjoy touch-ups whenever they’re needed!

    What is the best way to clean off my walls from
    Toppik hair fibers?
    I have white walls in my bathroom and after I use the spray on version of Toppik it gets every where.
    My walls look dirty and trying to wash them with soap and water makes it smudge all over the wall surface making it look worse.

      Try using a melamine sponge to clean your walls. Going forward, wipe the walls with a dry microfiber cloth after applying Fibers to prevent a buildup from occurring.

    Can you use toppik for temple hairloss? The kind where the guy has a M shaped hairline. I have no hair just scalp on both sides of my temples. Thanks!

    Trying Med. Blonde Hair Building Fibers for the first time. Color seems to be OK as I color my hair ash blonde. Bought a small container .42 oz to try
    out this product. Cannot get much to come out of the container. Have shaken
    the container but still difficult to get anything out. I did shake some of the fibers on a piece of Kleenex tissue and then tried to wipe this over the spots
    on my scalp that I wanted to cover. Not much happened. Is this product stale? It’s now being sold at a discount. I paid the full price.
    Your assistance would be very much appreciated.
