Three Great Reasons to Don Fabulous Wigs

In Hollywood, changing your hairstyle is as common as changing your wardrobe. Wigs have been around for hundreds of years both for cosmetic purposes and as a symbol of achievement, as well as for respect and reverence.

Wigs today are so finely crafted that, without knowing, it’s almost impossible to decide whether or not someone is sporting a wig or showing off their naturally beautiful full head of hair.

For those who don’t already know, the actors and actresses who put on wigs and wefts both in films and at award shows, it most likely won’t come as a surprise. Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Cage, Beyoncé, John Travolta, Javier Bardem and Rihanna all — famously — wear wigs to get a fuller look or to disguise hairlines.

However there also are some actors and actresses you might not suspect are wearing wigs on a regular basis, like “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd, Julianna Margulies, Robert Pattinson, Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones,” the immensely gifted Anne Hathaway and the charmingly beautiful Emma Stone.

Some people make the wrong assumption that wigs are not suitable for day-to-day life, that you cannot wear one unless you are famous. Others are a bit too conservative to allow a hair stylist the freedom to transform them in seconds.

Wigs are absolutely appropriate for all occasions — even a regular work day — and for everybody no matter who they may be or what they do. There are several things a wig can do that a stylist, coloring, cream or gels cannot accomplish.

Money Savers — with a stylist, the price of a new hairdo can be expensive. A wig — which can last for many years if properly cared for — is usually much less expensive than multiple visits to a stylist per year.

Time Savers — Styling your hair and getting it just right can become very time consuming. By wearing a wig, a person can get ready for formal occasions and/or special events in minutes, not hours.

Hide Deficiencies — Most of us are not blessed with perfect hair. Hair can be too thin or limp, receding, patchy or completely gone. A few of us have hair that has grayed prematurely or isn’t growing uniformly. And, most of the time it is not a big deal. But for special occasions, a wig can instantly make someone feel better about themselves by hiding any imperfections.
