How to wear Luna Small

Luna in small has been designed to fit short to shoulder-length hair. This is referred to as Type 1 and 2 hair in the Andre Walker Hair Typing System. As you can see our model has long type 1 hair. 

  1. Start with your hair down and dry, free of any heavy creams, oils or products. You don’t need to tie your hair up.
  2. Gather your hair at the back of your head into a style that is comfortable for you. This could be twisted into a low bun, or as our model has here, higher up into a chignon. You could also do one of our overnight hairstyles.
  3. Slip Luna over your head, starting at the forehead and pulling back over your hair ensuring all your hair is in.
  4. Don’t forget to tuck in any baby hairs and pull the jersey band down over your ears. 
  5. Adjust to make sure it’s comfy, and you are ready for a great night sleep.
  6. To remove in the morning, simply pull from your head.
  7. Say hello to your beautiful, protected hair.

How to wear Luna Large

Luna in large has been designed to fit shoulder length to long hair, from curly to afro textures including braids and extensions. This is referred to as Type 3 and 4 hair. As you can see our model has long locs. 

  1. Start with your hair down and dry, free of any heavy creams, oils or products. You don’t need to tie your hair up. Make sure the drawstring is completely loose so the entire body can slip over your head
  2. Gather your hair at the back of your head into a style that is comfortable for you. This could be twisted into a low bun, or you can leave your braids or locs loose and gather them into the Luna as our model has done. You could also do one of our overnight hairstyles.
  3. Slip Luna over your head, starting at the forehead and pulling back over your hair ensuring all your hair is in. Secure by pulling the drawstring as tight as is comfortable for you.
  4. Fasten the drawstring by tying into a bow.
  5. Don’t forget to tuck in any baby hairs and pull the jersey band down over your ears. Adjust to make sure it’s comfy, and you are ready for a great night sleep
  6. To remove in the morning, simply untie the drawstring, remove from your head.
