    Styling a Hair System

    Once you have fit your hair system onto your head and cut it, you of course do not want to walk around with it looking out of place, flat or dull. You need to brush and style your hair into place so your hair can help you look your best self.


    This help guide will take you through the different methods used to style your hair system, how you can style a hair system and how to protect your hair system when styling it.


    In Brief: Mini Hair System Style Guide

    The most basic of styling that you can carry out on your hair system involves washing it, combining it and an occasional blow dry. Let’s talk through the simplest of styling if you want a no-fuss hair system for everyday and don’t want to spend too much time on styling your toupee.


    The basics of styling a men’s hair system:

    • ● Combing your toupee pre-wash
    • ● Washing the toupee
    • ● Air drying the toupee
    • ● Combing the toupee
    • ● Blow drying the toupee to shape
    • ● Using leave-in conditioner on the toupee

    Comb your toupee pre-wash, to get rid of the tangles that have appeared throughout the day or night and make it easier to comb once wet and hence style one washed.


    Wash your toupee in warm, but not hot water to avoid excess heat on the hair system. Use soft hands to wash away the oils.


    Air drying the toupee is important to minimize damage. You should let it air dry 60-90% before using a hair dryer to reduce exposure to heat, as it ultimately dries out hairs faster. Try to let it dry to 100% where possible, for example if you are not going out and your hair system doesn’t need to look perfectly groomed.


    Combing the toupee - the question is before or after drying the toupee? In other words, should your toupee hairpiece be WET or DRY when you comb it? Lordhair advises that you can comb your hair system when wet, using a wide-toothed comb, after conditioning well. You can brush it when submerged in water and after you have come out of the shower. However, you must not pull strenuously on the toupee hairpiece as that is what will cause the damage.


    Blow dry the toupee to shape if you want to achieve a perfect bounce and lift to your hair that is so iconic of a good hair system, then you should let your hair system dry as much as possible and use a high-speed blow dryer on a LOW heat setting. Using a round comb brush, brush your hair up and allow your hair dryer to blow air into the hair brush, then using that air comb the hair out into the direction you want hair to sit.

    Blow dry the toupee to shape


    Use leave-in conditioner in the final step. This will add moisture back into your toupee. Normal hair gets extra moisture from your head oils, aka sebum. However toupee hair can tend to get dry quicker because hair is not attached to your scalp which creates natural oil, so there is no way to add moisture back in, unless you use a product such as a leave-in conditioner for hair systems.


    Hair System Haircuts

    When it comes to styling, the most important thing is picking a haircut you like. You need to think about the following?


    • ● How do I want my hair system haircut to be?
    • ● How do I need to cut my own (aka bio) hair to accommodate my hair system?
    • ● Where will I get it cut - by Lordhair, at a salon, or by myself?

    Hair system haircuts and bio hair length

    Here are the haircuts that require your hair to be slightly longer and the required measurements.

    Buzz Cut Men’s Haircut

    A buzz men’s haircut is essentially a haircut that is super short and emulates the army style of haircut. They actually come in a range of variations, including cut that taper and fade out at the bottom, but they are all primarily very short.


    Buzz cuts that would work with a hair system are those that are ever so slightly longer at the top and short at the sides with a fade, such as the disconnected buzz cut.


    Lordhair doesn’t have a preset buzz cut hairstyle. You can send pictures of this cut to achieve this look.

    Pompadour Hairstyle for Men

    The men’s pompadour haircut, also known as a pomp hairstyle for men, features a very long fringe that is swept back to create a long arch at the front of the hair which goes flat again at the crown. The pomp at the front is usually held in place with hairspray so it doesn’t budge and retains its volume. It is a classic 1950’s style that looks just as slick as back then.

    A crew cut haircut for men is a hairstyle which is rising in a graduated fashion to the front of the hairline to a very short pompadour which is pointed upwards, almost toward the sky.


    To achieve a crew cut hairstyle for men choose style LD051 or LD026

    A Side Part Haircut for Men

    The ultimate dapper haircut for men. It can’t help but add a level of elegance to any man with a side part, especially when slicked back with gel.

    If you want to achieve a Benedict Cumberbatch haircut or a Henry Cavill hairstyle, then try the side swept haircut with some curls in it.

    Man Bun Hairstyle

    A man bun haircut is essentially long hair that has been tied up into a bun. The hair is long and can also be achieved with a women’s wig. Man bun styles are often used interchangeably with a top knot hairstyle. A top knot haircut can be a type of man ban, but not all man bun hairstyles are top knots. Read below to find out what a top knot haircut is.


    Lordhair doesn’t have a man bun hairstyle. You will need to customize a full cap wig and send pictures of this cut to achieve this look.

    Top Knot Hairstyle


    A top knot haircut is a style which is long on the top, so long as to be able to tie the hair into a ponytail or a bun. The hair under the crown area is cut short. This top knot hairstyle is not only a popular hipster hairstyle but is also popular with most modern men. It pairs especially well with a beard.


    It is often used interchangeably with a man bun haircut. It is actually a type of man bun, one that has the bottom part of the hair shaved short. A man bun could be made from a full cap long hair wig, where every hair is long, including the nape of the neck.

    French Crop Men’s Hairstyle

    A men’s French crop haircut is a hairstyle which has a shorter back and sides, with a longer fringe at the front which hangs over the forehead, or can be slightly swept to the side. It is almost the perfect cut for a toupee and toupees allow you to get a lot of hair and volume at the top of the head.

    To achieve a side part haircut hairstyle for men choose style LD057

    Fade Haircut for Men

    A men’s fade haircut will only work if you still retain enough hair on the sides and near the crown area, as you need some bio hair to help create a good fade.

    Fade Haircut for Men

    A fade haircut is essentially where the hair at the back and sides has been cut in a way so it has a super smooth transition to the nape that is clean shaven. It creates an ultra-sleek, young and modern appearance which is especially popular amongst 20-30 year olds.


    To achieve a skin fade haircut hairstyle for men you can choose any short top hairstyle you like, the sides will need to be faded by a hairdresser with a special fade razor, and needs to be done on your bio hair, not your Lordhair hair system.

    Brushing or Combing a Hair System for Men

    Brushing the knots out of your hair system is important, not just so it looks neat and tidy, but to protect it from the damage leaving knots does to your hair. In this section we discuss how best to brush a hair system for men, and it can equally be applied to brushing women’s wigs.


    Tips for brushing a wig or combing a toupee


    • ● Brush and detangle hair before washing it 
    • ● Use a wide toothed comb to brush through hair
    • ● If your hair is on your head, wet it and comb it in the same direction
    • ● If you come across a large knot that looks impossible to get out, you may prefer to snip it out

    How to Detangle a Wig or Toupee

    If you have a hair system that has been damaged, or majorly dry and tangled, have no fear, it can be untangled. You just need patience and a steady hand. Watch our video below on how to detangle a hair system.


    Detangle a Hair System


    Quick method

    1. ● Wet your hair
    2. ● Use a wide toothed comb, starting from the bottom brush in downwards stokes, and work your way up until you can brush seamlessly through the whole hair root to tip
    3. ● Brush in a downward direction, to keep hair in the same direction
    4. ● Put hair conditioner on the hair and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing out with lukewarm (not hot) water
    5. ● Repeat as necessary if hair is majorly tangled
    6. ● Wash out conditioner for a final time and go back in with normal shampoo, then conditioner one more time
    7. ● Brush hair and leave to air dry


    Prevent Hair Systems Tangling

    The best way to make sure a hair system stays easy to brush and maintain, is to prevent tangles in the first place. What is the best way to do this? Read on to discover our top tips.


    The problem

    The solution

    Not washing dirt out of a toupee

    Deep clean your hair system (by deep conditioning) every 1-2 weeks to get rid of residues and dirt that build up.

    Not brushing/incorrectly brushing a hair system

    Small tangles in a hair system can lead to bigger ones if you leave them, or brush them with too small a comb. Use a wide toothed comb when brushing everyday to prevent tangles getting large.

    Hard water

    In areas where there is hard water hair systems are more prone to tangling. If you live in mountainous areas, or by the sea, water can be hard.

    Cold and dry air

    Cold and dry air can make a hair system frizzy and prone to tangling. Putting a small dab of hair oil at the ends will help to keep it dry-free and frizz-free, making the toupee easier to untangle. Too not use too much oil, it will become frizzy. One drop is enough.

    Unsatisfactory cuticle removal

    If the cuticle were not satisfactorily removed during processing, it may cause hair to tangle. To make human hair smooth and manageable, during the processing of hair, before knotting onto a base, the cuticles are removed. If this is not done satisfactorily, this may cause evident issues with constant tangling of hair. During production hair is submerged in a cuticle removing solution, so it is very unlikely that cuticles will not have been removed. If this is the case, it is possible to diagnose this issue by careful examination.

    Styling products

    Styling a hair system can be done in many ways, according to your preference, you can create whichever style you want for your toupee hair system. 


    The main products you will need to style a hair system:


    • ● Hair dryer
    • ● Ventilation comb
    • ● Curlers
    • ● Straighteners
    • ● Hair spray
    • ● Wax/leave-in conditioners

    Curling a Hair System

    Curling a hair system can help you create temporary curls that last until the next time you wash your hair system. Let’s look at how to curl a men’s toupee.


    If you want longer lasting curls, consider getting a permed hair system, or choose any Lordhair hair system and get it permed with our perm service. We also have a range of ready permed Afro hair systems AKA man weaves.


    What you’ll need:

    • ● Heat protectant spray
    • ● Curling tongs (it is recommended to get good quality tongs, such as GHDs)
    • ● Wide toothed comb


    How to curl your hair system:

    1. ● Make sure your hair system is fully dry before attempting to curl it
    2. ● Preheat your curling tongs
    3. ● Take 1-2 inches of hair at a time and wrap around your curling tongs
    4. ● Leave hair in the curlers for around 10 seconds before loosening the grip of the curlers and taking them out
    5. ● Continue until you have curled each section of the head
    6. ● Once complete, for a longer-lasting and curlier look, set the hair system with hair spray. For a more relaxed curl look, use your hands to ruffle the curls out slightly. Do not use a brush as this will simply undo the curls or make them look frizzy. You can run a tiny amount of moroccan oil through the ends to help it stay, and add moisture whilst adding some shine too.

    Straightening Your Toupee Hair System

    It is likely you will ever really need to straighten your hair system, and it isn’t advisable to make a habit of it because of the heat involved. However, let's look at how to straighten a men’s toupee:

    What you’ll need:

    • ● Hair straighteners
    • ● Heat protectant
    • ● Wide toothed comb

    How to Straighten a Men’s Hair System

    1. ● Ensure your hair system is fully dry and oil free, you may need to blow dry it if you have just washed it
    2. ● Brush through the hair so it is tangle free, use a wide-toothed comb
    3. ● Take small strips of your hair (1-2 inches) and run the straightening tool from root to tip applying pressure
    4. ● Use a smooth, quick motion avoiding using the heat on the hair for too long
    5. ● Each strip of hair should only need to be straightened once to achieve the desired effect 
    6. ● You can adjust the direction of your fringe/bangs with your straightener too
    7. ● Once you’ve completed all strips of hair, you can brush through the hair system again


    This straight style will last until the next time you wash it. Straightening your hair can also reduce the frizz and make your hair system look smoother.

    You can finish off with a tiny bit of Moroccan oil at the ends or a leave-in conditioner to add some moisture back in.

    Perming a Hair System

    If you have naturally curly hair, or have Afro hair, or if you simply want to give yourself curly hair, you totally can do that by letting us perm any hair system you wish on our website. You can simply choose a hair system, select the Perm Service, from the list of options in the sidebar of the product page. You can then select the level of perm you desire.

    Perming a Hair System

    Perming a Hair System


    What is a perm?

    A perm is a chemical process that makes strands of hair take on a different shape when dry. A solution is essentially put into the hair, the hair is then put in a certain shape whilst soaked with the solution. The solution is then washed away and dried, and hair, once dry, will naturally retain the shape it was set in.


    As human hair wigs don’t actually grow out, like a perm put into your own hair would, they last for the entire life of the wig itself, meaning you never have to re-perm it. 


    Take a look at how we perm hair systems:


    How to Get a Permed Wig?

    How to select a perm service


    NOTE: Hair length is the length of the strand once the hair is pulled taught. A super curly Afro hair length of three inches when curled will need hair that is much longer than three inches in length when measured by its actual length. On the Lordhair website, hair length is only the length of hair when pulled taught.


    *Men's Curl and Wave Options

    Here is a full breakdown and explanation of the different curl types you can find when choosing a perm.


    • ● Silky straight
      Absolutely straight as a pencil. This is not a logical choice for 99% of all men's hair styles because it will stick straight out if it is not long enough to create the weight to make it lay natural.
      Silky straight
    • ● Natural straight
      40mm rod size, it's not as straight as silky straight. If you like straight hair but not a very straight effect, then go for natural straight.
      Natural straight
    • ● Body wave (36mm)
      A 6” stock hairpiece with a 1-1/2 inch rod size will come up to approximately 3 inch waves. This very light bend will definitely not work well for a brush back style. When it is cut short, it will appear very straight.
      Body wave
    • ● Slight wave (32mm)
      6” hair with a 1 inch rod size will generate approximately a 2 inch wave, light movement or body will remain. When this is cut 2-1/2 inches or shorter it will appear to be almost straight. Any wave curl less than this will not have body.
      Slight wave
    • ● Medium wave (25mm)
      6” hair with a 7/8 inch rod size will become approximately a 1-3/4 inch wave. This will be a light wave and is the most common wave used for the majority of styles. When this is cut two inches or shorter there will only be light movement remaining.
      Medium wave
    • ● Tight wave (19mm)
      3/4 inch rod size will become approximately a 1-1/2 inch wave. Remember, if this is cut shorter than two inches most of the curl is cut out. This can also be a wave or curl depending on the direction it dries. Wet it and scrunch into a curl or comb flatten into a wave.
      Tight wave
    • ● Loose curl (15mm)
      5/8 inch rod size will become approximately 1-1/4 inch curl. Remember, if this is cut shorter than two inches most of the curl is cut out. This can also be a wave or curl depending on the direction it dries. Wet it and scrunch into a curl or comb flatten into a wave.

    Hair System Perm Limitations

    “It Wont Let Me Order a Hair System Perm”

    If you find that you are trying to add the perm service to your order, but the portal will not let you, it may be because the base is too thin to support a tight perm, or the hair color will not be strong enough to take the perm.


    Check out the graphic below to see the limitations when choosing a certain base, hair color and perm type for your men’s hair system.

    Drying a Hair System for Men【anchor#1】


    After washing your toupee, you can set a style using a hair dryer. However you will not want to go in straight with a hair dryer on your toupee after washing it. 


    What you'll need to dry a hair system:

    • ● Towel
    • ● Wide toothed comb
    • ● Hair dryer (on a low setting)
    • ● Detangling spray


    How to dry your hair system


    1. ● Start by washing and conditioning your hair thoroughly and ensuring no first residue is left
    2. ● Brush your wet hair with a wide tooth comb
    3. ● Spritz some detangling spray or heat protectant if necessary
    4. ● Start at your hairline and blow dry the front of your hair. Brush your hair with the hair brush placed over the hair and curl it backwards (as in the picture below). This will create that perfect brushback look, and add extra volume
    5. ● Continue to use the hair dryer and ventilation comb through the rest of the hair. At the back of the head you may want to use the brush underneath the hair (with the hair coming in over the top), to blow extra volume at the back
    6. ● Once the hair system is really dry, you can ruffle it up with your hands to make it look softer

    • ● Use less heat.
    • ● Let your system air dry longer.
    • ● Add leave-in conditioner to the ends.

    My Hair System Won’t Keep It’s Style

    If you create a hair system hairstyle but find it goes flat or doesn’t hold, try the following:

    • ● Set the ends with hair spray (a little goes a long way, don’t buy cheap).
    • ● Don’t use an injected hair system if you want bouncy hair (injected systems are flat).
    • ● Consider a permanent perm with the Lordhair Perm Service.


    My Hair System Has Flyaways

    If your hair system has flyaways, it may be too dry. Try the following: 

    • ● Add a TINY drop of oil to the ends (rub one drop in the palm of the hands before smoothing over the hair).


    My Hair System is Tangling

    If your hair system is tangling, then check out the tips below. Read more about hair system tangling if the issue persists.

    • ● Use detangle spray after towel-drying, before styling

    Bad Toupee: Why Your Hair System Looks Bad

    If styled wrong, your hair system will look fake and give your game away. Here are some tips to avoid a bad toupee look and get your A-game on with your hair system.


    • ● Pick the right hair system in terms of color and density
    • ● Brush the hair to keep it neat
    • ● Cut the hair so it blends with bio (your own natural) hair
    • ● Go for a natural style according to your ethnicity (an Afro may not look so good on Caucasian skin and vice versa)

    Afro Hair Systems: How To Style Man Weaves

    Afro men’s hair systems are commonly referred to as man weaves, and are men’s hair systems (aka men’s toupees) that are made with Afro hair (or hair that have been permed into Afro hair). Styling on an Afro men’s toupee, or man weave, may be slightly different to the advice given above, as Afro hair is often styled differently to non-black hairstyles.

    Learn about all our Afro hair systems and man weaves by watching this video where Afro hair system expert Mario from Lordhair talks you through different Lordhair Afro hair systems.



    Man Weave with Braids

    You can even create braids with a man weave, you’ll first want to attach the Afro hair system before attempting braiding. However, once on, you can take it to a salon to get it braided. The possibilities are literally endless.

    Natural Afro Hair Hair Systems

    Going Au Naturel has had a major revival amongst women with Afro hair in the black community. Why not with men too? A full-bodied Afro is available instantly with Lordhair. It’ll arrive in perfect condition direct to you in 7-10 days and be ready to attach straight away. Replacing it every 2-4 months means, although you need to look after it whilst on your head, a non-surgical Afro hairpiece will actually require less work than that. Afro hair needs much more TLC than Causasian or Asian hair if wearing it in a natural style. That is the reason why many black people opt for protective styles. 

    Most Afro hair styles on the Lordhair.com website are too long to wear naturally, but they can easily be shaved down, just take it to your barber that knows how to deal with Afro hair to get it styled up.
