Back in the day, wigs used to be reserved for two occasions — Halloween and unrealistic undercover detective work as seen on most sitcoms.
Still, the world of hair beauty has changed drastically. Nowadays, it’s all about wigs and sporting one for kicks is far from taboo.
Wigs have become high in demand for curious folk and those with medical reasons alike. You can definitely tell just from the bunch of wig lines that have been sprouting up all over the place! Let’s see…there’s the Revlon Premiere wig line, the Amore Designer Wigs, Katour Line Designer Wig Collection, and, oh yes, the Patti LaBelle line. And that’s just counting a few.
Why wear a wig?
Perhaps health reasons motivate you. Perhaps you have short hair and wish for long, flowing locks, or perhaps you want to tie back your long hair and attend a party with a shorter chic style. Maybe you’re sick of that stick straight hair and desire a big, explosive mop. And maybe, since we’re all not like Tonks from Harry Potter, we are happy with our hair color but want to test out a new bold one to add a dash of flavor. Care for raven, blond, or hot pink? Wig collections have them all.
I’ve had a bunch of friends wear them out for a night on the town. They were bored with their structured look and wanted to let loose. I’ve had a friend even wear one to a concert just so when she glanced back at photos she could enjoy a good laugh over her purple bob. Even Miss Tyra Banks uses them to change up her look without taking a more permanent route.
Like it or not wigs are here to stay. The question is, would you ever wear one? Long, short, purple, pink — what would this wig look like?
