Can you wear a wig if you have hair?

A very common misconception is that you have to be bald to wear a wig. We get messages from women every day asking whether they will need to shave their head to wear a Lusta Wig.

Although our wigs are designed for women with total hair loss in mind, they are equally as comfortable and secure if you do have your own hair underneath.


Here are some common questions we get from women who have their own hair:

Will my hair show through?

Yes and no. You'll tuck most of your own hair up and conceal it underneath the wig cap. However, a lot of women like to blend their real 'sideburn' hair with their wig to make it look super realistic! The wigs do have baby hairs cut in so if you'd rather not blend any of your own hair.


Will their be a 'bump' where my hair is underneath the cap?

Our wig caps are designed to be super head-hugging, so when you put them on your head, they almost 'flatten' your own hair underneath the cap. Even people with a full head of hair are able to tuck their hair into the cap and it will look super flat!


What's the best way to tuck your head into a wig?

This is all about personal preference. Some women find that the best way to conceal their own hair is to simply put it in a pony tail and tuck it under the cap. Others prefer a low braid or bun. And some may even just use some hair pins to pull their hair back. It's all about finding what works best for you.


Any other tips for wearing a wig with your own hair?

For sure!

Some women love wearing their wig with a wig grip. Our wig grips are basically a velvet headband that you put on before you put on your wig. They help the wig stay on extra securely and provide and extra layer of comfort.

The first time you put your new wig on can be a bit scary. Especially if you have thin or fine hair, the sudden addition of all those extra locks can feel a bit overwhelming. Take your time to get used to the new look. It's like any dramatic change to your appearance. It takes a few times seeing yourself in the mirror to get used to it.
