How to embrace your wig with the right attitude

You know you want to, but there’s a part of you wondering if you should… What’s keeping you from wearing a wig? If you need reasons, advice on how to do it, or even just some pep talk, this story can help. Here are the whys and hows most likely to solve you wig dilemma:


Wigs allow for your creativity and boldness to come through without risking the health, the look or the quality of your hair.


If you like changing your look by the hair, you probably know the drill: at least three out of five changes aren’t successful. Whether you were having a bad day or lacked technique, from dye jobs to dramatic cuts, you’ve probably spent a few months – if not years – growing your hair from an unfortunate makeover decision.


Got long, dark hair, and a craving for a platinum bob? Put a wig on and live your fantasy. This also applies to perms, bright shades and unorthodox lengths with minimum risk of letting yourself down.


Or, as Rita Ora – who owns about 20 wigs to perform or just “to play with” – would put it: To save your own hair, wigs are literally the way forward.”


Cher, Beyoncé, Sia, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Dolly Parton (that’s if you need more celebrity endorsement for the look)… Wigs are the ultimate diva-worthy accessories.


Forget jewellery, furs and flashy heels: the right wig will outdo any style statements you can think of. From stage to the screen, the bedroom to the streets, a wig allows you to add drama to your life or enhance reality with the simple gesture of slipping it on.


Supermodel Iman, for example, believes no taboos: Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others. Wigs, killer heels, Pilates, even fillers – whatever works for you, honey.”


Think of wigs as extended make-up.


You don’t fear lipstick, false lashes or even glitter, do you? Why would you fear wearing a wig? Play it cool, wear it nonchalantly and incorporate wigs into your beauty routine as you’d embrace a new eye shadow.


The more relaxed you are about it, the better you’ll nail the look.


Don’t be secretive about it.


The same way you don’t want to convince others that your lips are actually bright red, a wig shouldn’t be something to be ashamed of. As a matter of fact, rather than “is she or is she not”, go for “yes she does and it looks great.

Actress Joan Collins, who made television history in wigs, was never shy about them: I’ve made no secret of the fact that I often wear wigs; (…) I find this saves a ton of time – as well as my own hair.”
