Hey Lovely!

I'm Holly and I've had Alopecia Universalis (complete hair loss) ever since I was a kid. I've been wearing wigs for over 25 years, so I feel like I've attained the title of 'wig expert' 😂

You might have clicked onto this page because you've just started experiencing hair loss and don't know where to start, or maybe, like me, you've had hair loss for a while, but still haven't found that wig that feels like 'you'.

No matter why you're here, I am so happy I can be here to answer some of those questions you just can't seem to find answers to.

So grab yourself a coffee, get comfy and get ready to have every single question you've had about wigs answered!

What Types of Wigs are There?

There are SO MANY types of wigs out there!

There are different hair types (synthetic hair, real human hair, and varying qualities within that), different cap types, different densities, different ways of securing them.... woah it can all get a bit much! So let's simplify this process. I'm going to walk you through our different wigs, so you can clearly understand how they work, and which one might be right for you!

At Lusta Hair, we offer four types of wigs; the Essentials wig, Lace-Front Essentials wig, Game Changer wig and Workout wig. Here's the run down on our four different wig types.

"I NEED TO KNOW MORE"

There's a LOT to learn about wigs, I know!

Have a watch of these videos which go a little more in depth about what the benefits of each type of wig are and what might be the best option for you!

Or Maybe a topper is best for you?

So you've heard of wigs, but what about toppers?

Imagine hair extensions and a wig made a super model baby! A topper is like a hair extension for the top of your head, or like half a wig. It clips in to your hair for a completely natural look. They are great for ladies who still want to blend their own bio hair with their piece.

Have a watch of this video which explains the differences between toppers and wigs. If you'd like more info on toppers click HERE.

How Does It Stay On?

There are many different types of wigs out there, and they all secure in different ways. You may have heard of wigs that you have to glue down to your head, or secured with combs or clips or an elastic strap.

For our wigs, there's no gluing, there's no taping- nothing! Our wigs will all stay securely on your head without using anything extra.

Our Essentials wigs have a clip on each ear tab (the part of the wig that comes down just in front of your ear) and a comb at the front, which can be attached to bio hair. However they are completely optional (as you do not even need hair to wear these wigs!) and can be easily removed.

Our Game Changer wigs have silcone grip lining within the cap and an overall very snug fit to hold on to your head all over with no clips.

Watch this video if you don't believe me that our wigs are the most secure pieces out there!

"I've Heard Wigs Are...."

We hear it SO often, 'I'm too scared to wear wigs, because.....". And that's totally valid. It can be super scary to take the plunge into the hair-wearing world. But there's definitely some misinformation going around about wigs that may have scared you off from even considering them! Watch this video to hear why wigs may not be quite as scary as you think....

How Do I Get The Right Size?

One of the most nerve-wracking aspects of purchasing your first piece, or your first piece from a brand you haven't tried yet, is getting the right size.

Check out this video on how to measure and find your best size on our size chart.

Choosing Your Colour

Ok, so you've decided what type of wig you need, you know your size... NOW for the fun part!

If you want to match your bio hair colour as closely as possible, send us some photos of your hair in accurate, natural lighting and we will make a recommendation for you.

Or maybe you're taking the opportunity to switch things up and have your dream hair colour, chat with us and we will help you find the perfect piece.

Watch this video all about choosing the right colour for you!

What Length Should I Get?

Getting a wig means you can choose any length you want, without being limited by matching your own bio hair length. You can go for super long 24" mermaid locks, or maybe a sleek 12" bob is more your style!

Watch this video to see how we measure the length of our pieces, so you can find out what will work best for you!

Are They Very Thick?

A very good question, as, yes, a lot of wigs out there are super thick and overwhelming.

All our wigs are precut for you so they are ready to wear, straight out of the box. This means that our team of stylists (among the best alternative hair stylists in the world), have thinned out the wigs and added layers in all the right places to give it natural movement and an easy to wear density. The wigs also have face framing and baby hairs cut in to make styling a breeze.

Lusta Customisations

Lusta Customisations

Make Your Piece Your Own!

Sometimes straight off the rack doesn't work for everyone. Maybe you have bangs/a fringe, or maybe your roots are a little darker. We totally get that everyone's different and that's why we offer customisations to your piece by the best alternative hair stylists in the WORLD! We can achieve the hair you've been dreaming of. These videos go through the custom colour and cut options we offer!

Ok, but what about?...

What quality is your hair? I've heard of different 'grades' of hair, what's yours?

So here's the tea... 'Brazillian grade', 'Euro hair' and other words like this you may have heard, are actually just fancy marketing terms that were made up by the hair industry and don't refer to the origin of the hair at all. What this really refers to is the coarseness/texture of the hair. It's a little complicated and so many voices say different things. At Lusta Hair, we have the highest quality 100% remy human hair. "Remy" means that the cuticle of the hair is in tact and is all going the same direction in your piece. This is crucial for the hair to remain smooth and tangle free and last a long time. Our hair is sourced globally, is strong and healthy and the texture is smooth and silky. The hair strands are quite fine but not the finest, whispiest hair grade as we prefer our hair to be able to hold a style.

Does Wearing a Wig Get Hot?

Of course, wearing something on your head is going to be more hot than wearing nothing at all. But generally you aren't going to feel your head getting unbearably hot in a piece. I find that as long as I'm able to put my piece up in a pony tail, getting the hair off my neck, I'm able to stay cool (even in the 40 degree Celcius Australian summers!)

Can You Go Swimming in a Wig?

Short Answer: YES

You can definitely wear your wig when you go swimming, in the ocean, in a pool, wherever, BUT- do note that this may shorten the lifespan of your piece. Personally, I prefer to use an older or a cheaper piece to go swimming to preserve my best piece. But I'm all about NEVER letting your hair hold you back from doing what you want to do, so if swimming is something you want to do in your piece, go for it!

Do You have Curly/Wavy Hair?

Naturally curly hair is very difficult to source, so we don't commonly stock naturally curly pieces. Click HERE to watch our curly hair tutorial. Another option is to have the piece permed, which can be done on our darker coloured pieces.

How Long Do Wigs Last?

With excellent care, our pieces will generally last 2 years. In fact, some of our customers have been wearing them much longer than this. Do not fear, the hair will not just spontaneously combust haha BUT you may notice the texture of the hair will slightly change, usually feeling drier as the piece gets older. Around the 1-2 year mark, many of our customers look at purchasing their second piece and use their previous piece for beach outings or cutting some fun bangs! What a luxury to have more than one hair option!
