Julia Lampard Wig & Headscarf Lingerie Story

It all started a hot summer day in August 2012 when a client of mine, Kate, came into the salon saying that she was happy with the look of her wig, but unfortunately, was finding it too hot and uncomfortable to wear. I noticed when Kate arrived that she had some muslin tied around her head. This set bells ringing with me, as I remembered reading, that people going through chemotherapy should make sure that they’re pillowcases are of natural fibres in order to protect their sensitive scalps.

I could see the link to wearing a wig, as they are made of synthetic fibres, and could see the possibilities of using natural breathable muslin fibre to give great results in helping to protect a client’s scalps.

Seeing the muslin tied around Kate’s head, I placed her wig on top of her muslin and to my amazement, not only did the muslin protect the scalp, it also held the wig in place, eliminating any concerns about the wig moving. Kate and I were both delighted to have found a solution to the problem.

I then brought some muslin and asked Doris (a lovely lady, and client of mine who was a seamstress) to make up some triangles of the muslin fabric. At the time, I would tie the triangle of the fabric to my clients’ heads, cut the corners off and then stitch it to fit each individual client’s head. I didn’t charge for this service: my only request was that if clients wanted to help others, they could put money in the charity box for one or both of the two charities we’d chosen to support.

Time went by, and one day a client said to me “Julia, why don’t you get this patented? That was when I realised that I need to something a little more sophisticated than I was currently offering. The next day, I was on the phone to Doris: I said “Doris, please can you help me? I need to come up with a design to fit my clients’ heads, and my stitching is pretty terrible! “Doris and I then spent time together coming up with the best possible solution. And from then onwards, this has been a continuous wonderful journey and work in progress in my life.

At long last, we had a tried and thoroughly tested finalised product: from the Julia Lampard Muslin Wig Liner, and now Julia Lampard Wig & Headscarf Lingerie. It keeps you fresh, as you can wash the wig lingerie daily. It also protects your scalp and gives your wig and its base a longer lifespan.
