Wig parting types
Our wigs come in different parting styles as follows…
Skin Top partings have a light coloured piece sewn into the cap to mimic a scalp. The hair is punched into this piece to give the effect of a real hair parting!
Our Closure top wigs are finished with a top piece that forms a circular crown.
Our Lace Front wigs are sewn on to a lace cap to give the ultimate in realistic hairline and parting. Most of our Lace Front wigs have no defined parting and are able to be customised and parted wherever you’d like.
All our wigs will fit the majority of head sizes. They all come with an adjustable head cap.
If you are unsure and would like to double check, get in touch with your head size and wig preference and we’ll measure it up for you.
What kind of fibre is used in our wigs?
All of our wigs (unless stated) use a high temperature synthetic fibre that can be heated to 180°C (356°F). This is the lowest setting on most hair tools. Please check your tools specifications before styling your wig.
Wig photo information
All of our wigs are as pictured on the models.
Some models choose to further style the wigs. Blunt fringes usually come longer so that the exact length can be cut to suit.
In most cases you can view customers wearing the styles via our Instagram hashtags. Use #lushwigs followed by the name of the wig. For example: #lushwigsredsea. This may help you in deciding whether the colour is what you are looking for.
Please be aware that the colours may look slightly different in person due to your device screen settings, or Instagram filters. Contact our customer service team if you’d like an exact colour match, and one of us will send you a picture so you can confirm the shade.
All photographs are credited and must not be copied or used elsewhere without the express permission of each person involved (Model, Photographer, Lush Wigs).
How to put on your wig
If you have hair, you may want to sweep it up into a wig cap.
Hold your wig at the nape of the neck and pull it on to your head, with the front of the wig positioned above your eyebrows. Slowly pull down until it sits just in front of your natural hairline on your forehead. If it feels a little loose, you can use the straps inside to adjust the size so it sits more comfortably. When you feel good about the position and security of your wig, you can start to tuck in any stray hairs and arrange the fringe if it has one.
The majority of our ‘synthetic high temperature fibre’ wigs can be styled (curled, straightened etc.) with most electrical appliances. Please make sure the maximum temperature does not exceed 180°C (356°F). This is the lowest setting on most hair tools. Please check your tools specifications before styling your wig. It is best to do this slowly, using small sections of hair at a time.
There are plenty of resources to be found on YouTube that take you through the process of styling your wig. Many of our customers straighten or curl their styles, or cut them into a different style completely! You can view some of these transformations on Instagram under hashtag #lushwigsmods.
Please note that this is always done at the customers own risk. Returns cannot be accepted should any damage occur due to customer styling.
Synthetic hair is not similar to natural hair; in that it does not become dry in the same way due to no sebaceous glands creating grease at the roots. We recommend washing your wig around every 10 – 15 wears just to get it looking healthy again. Keep in mind this is down to the individual user. Some may prefer to wash their wig less or more frequently. Wearing a Wig Cap will reduce the frequency needed for washing your wig.
We recommend using wig shampoo for this. Some people use regular shampoo, some even use laundry detergent! We suggest you do a little research and see which will work best for you.
Before washing you need to remove any tangles or knots.
Gently comb the tangles and any knots from your wig using a wide tooth comb. Never use a regular hairbrush as this will pull too hard on the wig strands and will lead to hair loss/ stretching of the hairs.
Make sure to work from the ends to the roots.
Add a small amount of the shampoo to a large bowl or sink of tepid/cool water.
Submerge the wig in the bowl or sink for around five to ten minutes. Never use hot water as this can damage your wig.
Gently swish the wig from side to side, make a slow scrunching movement with your hands to make sure the water moves through the cap and roots where your head can get hot. Be careful not to rub the wig. Be gentle.
Drain the bowl or sink and rinse the wig under clean, cool water to remove any leftover shampoo.
We recommend using wig conditioner for this.
After the shampoo, clean the sink or bowl with fresh water and then fill again with tepid/cool water. Add a small amount of wig conditioner to the water and then swish the wig around in a similar manner to how you first washed it.
Drain the bowl or sink water and rinse the wig under clean water to remove any leftover conditioner.
Wrap a clean towel around the wig and gently press to remove any excess surface water. Allow the wig to air dry naturally.
We advise to store your wig in the plastic storage bag it was delivered in. We advise against storing your wig on a mannequin head as this can stretch the wig if stored like this for a considerable amount of time. Wig stands are a good alternative.
