What are crown boosting hair pieces?

Crown boosting hair pieces are clip-in hair extensions uniquely designed to add volume and coverage to the crown area of the head. The specially designed cap sits comfortably, securely and discretely upon the crown, providing an instant boost of volume to what was a thin and sparse area of hair.

How to install a crown boosting hair piece

Whilst it may look complicated, installing a crown boosting hairpiece is, in fact, incredibly easy. Follow these simple steps to add instant, yet discrete, volume to your previously thin and sparse crown:

Step 1: Part the hair

First, you need to make a parting from ear to ear over the top of the head (imagine the parting like a headband). To keep the front section separate, use a claw clip or hair tie to secure the hair forward and out of the way.

Step 2: Prepare the extension

Then, you want to measure the curve of the crown boosting hairpiece against the back section of hair you have parted away - will the extension sit where you need it to? To prepare the crown boosting hairpiece, open each of the clips ready for attachment.

Step 3: Install the extension

To prepare the natural hair for installation, backcomb or tease the hair along the parted line and use hairspray to add additional texture - focusing on the back section of hair (not the front). Next, push the clips into the teased parting, securely fastening them down once in place.

Step 4: Style your hair

Finally, release the previously tied front section and blend it backwards, across the piece. Use our Stranded Smooth Finish Extension Brush (RRP £9) for a soft and subtle blend. For a sophisticated look, tuck your hair blended behind your ears.

Where can I buy a crown hair piece in the UK?

Crown pieces may be considered a little dated, but many women still love to use them to instantly transform their thin hair - especially as the crown area makes thin and sparse hair incredibly noticeable.

At Stranded Hair Group, we no longer stock crown boosting hair piece, but here are other brands which produce the same or similar product to what we did:

Synthetic fibre hair:

Human Hair:

  • BeautyWorks Remy Human Hair 18" Hair Enhancer (RRP £130.98) available in 8 colours.
  • Additional Lengths 100% Human Hair 16” Top Volumiser (RRP £250) available in 13 colours.

What are alternative extensions to crown hair pieces?

Whilst we no longer stock crown boosting hair pieces, our entire range of clip-ins, ponytails and buns will provide instant volume boosts to thin and sparse hair.

However, if worn slighter higher and closer to the crown, our Synthetic Clip-in One Piece Hair Extensions can provide a similar volume boost to your hair, just as a crown boosting hairpiece could.
