First appointment: Wig consultation
Feel free to bring a friend or family member to support you and to offer a second opinion.
Your appointment will start with an introduction to the different types of wigs, including synthetic and human hair and the benefits and drawbacks of both.
The most important step in the consultation process is choosing the correct wig base to ensure a perfect fit which is also completely comfortable and secure. We always use the unique Julia Lampard Wig Liner® with any wigs you try on. Not only is this hygienic, but the soft muslin protects your scalp and helps secure the wig in its perfect position.
Once the most suitable wig base has been chosen, we would then consider the hair texture, colour and style of wig which would most flatter your own skin tone and eyes.
If at this stage you are ready to place an order, there is usually a 1-2 day delivery time for stock from the UK, or from 2-4 working days for products from overseas.
Second appointment: Wig cut and styling
1 hour for synthetic wigs. 2 ½ hours for human hair wigs.
No matter which wig you choose, we always recommend that you have it cut and styled so that it is perfectly tailored just for you. Wig cutting is a specialised skill and cannot be undertaken by hairdressers who have not been professionally trained to style wigs. Julia has many years of experience with cutting and styling wigs and hairpieces, so you can be confident that you will be delighted with the result.
Please note that this cutting service is only available for wigs supplied through the Julia Lampard salon or those that have been purchased directly from the Julia Lampard online shop.
Once the wig has been cut and styled, we will show you the look from every angle to make sure you are perfectly happy and comfortable.
We will then spend time showing you the correct way of placing and wearing both the Julia Lampard Wig Liner® and your wig, and will practise with you so you are confident of managing on your own.
Before leaving, we will explain how to wash and care for your wig and wig liner, and show you some products that you would most benefit from. For all our first time wig buyers we always recommend our basic starter package: Julia Lampard Wig Liner®. Polyhead or Work Head (depending on wig type). Brush. Momo Shampoo. Momo Conditioner. Wig care instruction leaflet.
You can view the wide selection of wigs and hairpieces we supply from our Online Shop. We also supply a selection of luxury hand-tied wigs and hair pieces in human and synthetic hair, which we fit and personalise to ensure total comfort.
To enable us to help you choose a wig online, we ask you to provide us with photographs, head measurements and some information about your colour preferences and to send by post a sample of your hair. (We have helped customers from as far away as the Middle East in this way.)
First, we suggest you read our page on Wig Types and browse the wide selection of photographs on the Julia Lampard Pinterest page for styles that might suit you. We are exclusive suppliers of leading wig brands Belle Madame, Hair Society and Purepower, and can source any of the styles shown on this page.
- Your head measurements as shown in the diagram to the right.
- Some details about the colours of clothes and jewellery that you wear. For example, do you like bold, bright colours or neutrals? Do you prefer gold or silver jewellery?
- Attach photographs showing your head from the front, the side and the back. It is important that the photographs show your skin tone so that Julia can advise on a shade of wig that will enhance it.
In addition, we would like to see a sample of your hair. Please send this, clearly marked with your name and email address, to the following address: Julia Lampard Salon, Milkhouse Gate, Sydenham Road, Guildford, Surrey GU1 3RW.
When we have received this information we can send you suggestions for the type of wig that Julia thinks would suit you as well as some selected colour swatches. If you decide to proceed to ordering a wig, it will be styled by Julia to suit and delivered to you.
