Our love affair with wigs

25 Aug

When you look at celebs like Kylie Jenner or Nicki Minaj and wonder how they constantly change their style we’ll let you into a secret – wigs.

This isn’t a new love affair. In fact stars of the big screen (and small screen) have always relied on wigs to keep their style up to date. It means you can transform your look in minutes, go from long to short or try a completely different colour, and do it in seconds.

The technology behind wigs has become so amazing over the past few years that it’s actually becoming harder and harder to spot a wig when you see one. Lace fronts help the wig blend in naturally so it looks just like your own hair. Plus a human hair wig is sewn so that the hair falls naturally, with a natural parting, so it’s even harder to spot!

Younger stars are much more open about wearing wigs. Kylie Jenner has talked about not wanting to dye her hair constantly, and also about the pressure of having to change her style constantly. She relies on wigs because it reduces the strain on her natural tresses. Stars like her being open about wearing wigs has gone a long way to reducing the stigma of wearing a wig.

A wig isn’t, of course, just for woman who want to change their hairstyle. Women who’ve lost their hair, whether through illness, stress or treatment, know how much it can damage your confidence. A wig is the ideal way to cover any bald patches, or to give your confidence the boost it needs.

When you’re choosing a wig it’s always worth doing you research first. What style do you want? What colour do you want it, what length? You can talk to your stylist and they’ll help you find the right match. Remember, when you fit the wig for the first time ask your stylist if they’ll do any trimming and work to make it frame your face perfectly. Just like with any hairstyle, your wig has to compliment your face and style.

When you’re caring for your wig, make sure you use products that are sulfate free. That goes for hair extensions as well, as you want to ensure you’re using a product that isn’t going to strip the hair. Keep it combed and neat and make sure you’re storing your wigs carefully so they don’t get tangled or knotted while you’re not wearing them.
