Wigs have improved in quality and effectiveness in recent years — which is why so many celebrities are now wearing them. Whether it’s to achieve a short-term change of image or cover up a hair loss problem, these five celebrities have proved that the right wig can look fantastic.
1. John Travolta
The star of Grease and Pulp Fiction has made a living from, among other things, his immortalized hairstyles. However, the superstar actor has had a torrid time with hair loss over the years. While Travolta tends to embrace his baldness in private, he often reaches straight for his collection of wigs and weaves when his job requires it. The fact that the actor’s wig has been a matter of debate and disagreement for so many years is testament to the quality of his hairpieces.
2. Sean Connery
According to recent reports, Sean Connery wore a wig in every James Bond movie he starred in. The Scottish actor began to lose his hair at the tender age of 21, which posed some serious problems for his career prospects. Fortunately, the producers of “Dr. No” saw past the hair loss — and ensured Connery was given the finest wigs money could buy.
3. Chuck Norris
Chuck Norris has made a name for himself by playing action heroes, but there was a time when these roles weren’t available to men with hair loss. Norris was forced to wear wigs from an early age — with varying degrees of success. Over the years, however, the actor’s hairpieces improved in quality, and they are now as good as anything you’ll find in Hollywood.
4. Katy Perry
Katy Perry is one of those artists who likes to continually evolve and surprise her fans. The pop superstar often switches between a short crop to flowing locks within a day — all because she has the best wig makers in the business at her disposal. Wearing wigs is something Perry is very proud of, and she takes every opportunity possible to share her collection of hairpieces with the World on Instagram. She even asks her followers which wig she should wear for special occasions.
5. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is an artist who is constantly pushing the boundaries of fashion. She transforms her entire look regularly, and that means constantly experimenting with new wigs. Gaga made a big statement at the 2015 Academy Awards, when she arrived on the red carpet wearing a silvery-gray “grandma” wig. While fashion journalists and avid fans expressed shock at first, it wasn’t long before the look had caught on around the world.
The incredible quality of wigs means they now often go unnoticed. But when the whole point of wearing them is to get noticed, they never fail to deliver.
