Famous People Who Love Their Wigs

In some cultures, people cover their hair and wear wigs. In others, wigs are used in celebrations and rites of passage.

Wearing a wig is also an excellent way to change up your look. When you are famous, it is a perfect way to vary your style when walking the red carpet, sporting a new fashion label, or rocking out at a concert.

It is not unusual to see celebs going from curly and blonde to sleek and brunette over the course of one single night or a weekend. Wigs also let you change hair length without commitment. Many celebrities who wear wigs can try anything from a pixie cut to bob to a variety of extra-long hairstyles whenever they want. And it is not just the women of Hollywood who love wigs. Wearing a wig is quite trendy for men as well.

Wig wearing celebrities seem to be everywhere nowadays, from TV to social media. What star hasn’t posted a photo of themselves to Instagram sporting brand “new” hair? Well, guess what? They are probably wearing wigs!

What Celebrity Wears Wigs?

The number of celebrities who wear wigs is high. It has become so common to wear wigs that people no longer pretend that the hair they are wearing is natural, real hair. It is hard to find an actor, actress, or singer who does not wear a wig from time to time.

So, who are some rumored past and present hairpiece and wig-wearing celebs?

These men and women wear/wore wigs for many reasons. For some, like Elvis and John Travolta, and Michael Jackson, wigs covered up hair loss or balding. For others, especially singers and actresses, wigs are a tool for expression or an easy way to change styles and colors without commitment.

Some Celebrities Wear Wigs to Protect Their Natural Hair

Famous actresses, musical performers, and models have traditionally subjected their hair to brutal chemical treatments, dye jobs, and complicated hairstyles. These things can all cause serious damage to their natural hair.

For many of these women, wearing wigs is a perfect way to give their natural locks a welcome break. Giving your head a break from treatments, weaves, and heat, even for a week or two, can improve its overall health and condition. Wearing wigs can continue to protect your natural hair long after it has recovered from the damage.

Fans Are Rocking Wigs Like Their Favorite Celebrities

Are you tired of your old hairstyle? Do you want to have the hair you always wanted? Maybe you want to try a blonde pixie cut like Katy Perry but are afraid your hairstylist can’t do it properly? Perhaps you want a long, curly style like Beyoncé sometimes wears but don’t have the patients to wait for your hair to grow. Maybe Lady Gaga inspires you to go bold with wigs of bright colors, different lengths, or dramatic hairstyles.

Now is the time to try wearing wigs! They have never been more popular and easier to tailor to your specific wants and needs. You would be surprised at who wears a wig. You don’t have to be a celebrity to enjoy the benefits of wigs.
