How to counter Ahri as Lux
Be careful when phising for Q's, if you miss one the Ahri might be confident enough to engage on you while your CC is on cooldown.
Ahri is slow and short ranged so you should make the most of spamming your E to safely harass her and then proc your passive by autoattacking her from your minions.
Although her mobility can be an issue for a champ reliant on skillshots, Ahri's like to open with their dash aimed at you to get an easier Charm. You can use this predictability to QER her as she jumps in as she is just as soft as you are.

How to counter Lux as Ahri
If Lux ever uses her binding for whatever reason, you have a ~10 second window to engage on her if you have your ultimate up since all her damage is reliant on that binding connecting with a target.
During extended duels, as in if you don't instaburst Lux. It can be a good idea to keep your distance when she shields herself until it runs out before jumping back in as Lux's shield is ideal for reducing the sustained damage part of Ahri's dueling.
Zhonya's Hourglass is a must have item against Lux. Ahri has a tendency of getting right into the action, this close range makes it easier for Lux to land a binding and if she lands one, without Hourglass Ahri is almost certain to die during teamfights.
Save your spirit rush for avoiding her Q- Lux is useless without her bind. Use the remaining two charges to get close and burst her down!

Matchup Analysis
bandlegunner - Posted about Sep 24th, 2015
So, we have an assassin/kite mage vs. a long-ranged control/support mage.

Lux could not care less about Ahri's outstanding mobility because of her extremely fast Q, which when used correctly can stop Ahri's ultimate dash and lock her in place for Lux to unload her full rotation on that unlucky fox grill..

But, if the Ahri player hits a Charm and manages to dodge Lux's snare, that's pretty much it for Lux, although if Lux is skilled and ahead already, she might be able to outplay Ahri with her shields, E and R.

In teamfights Lux shines because of her AOE damage, control and utility, though her pick/assasination potential, mobility and kiting is nowhere near Ahri's

All in all, a skill matchup and a very interesting one indeed.

Lux has the ranged advantage and should abuse it by just poking, playing defensively and going all in on Ahri given the chance to do so.
Ahri should look forward to roaming and finding an opening to go in on Lux post 6.
