Wigs are More Popular Than Ever

For women, in particular, wigs have become more and more popular in recent years. They are not just for women experiencing hair loss who want to cover up their thinning hair.
Many famous actresses and singers wear wigs regularly, making no attempt to hide the fact that we do not see their “real” hair. Beyoncé, Jenifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, and Jennifer Aniston all claim to love their wigs. Gwen claims she hasn’t seen her real hair since she was in ninth grade!

Any wig-wearing stigma that may (or may not) have existed in past decades is long gone. Wigs are all the rage.

What Are Some Benefits of Wearing a Wig?

There are many reasons that women might choose to wear wigs. They can serve different purposes depending on the personal circumstances and goals of each person making this choice. At Riviera Hair Replacement, when clients come to us seeking options, we make sure to understand their needs and work together to design and create the best possible solution. That solution is often a wig. Why?

Wigs offer women multiple benefits and can be used to satisfy a variety of individual needs. Wigs provide some of the following benefits:

Unlimited styles to choose from – Many women crave new hairstyles or colors but are afraid to do something too drastic or something that can be difficult to undo. Wigs give people the opportunity to get a new look without commitment. Whether you want something dramatically different or a subtle tweak, wigs can be a perfect way to satisfy your desire for change.

Protection from damage: If you are someone who regularly colors your hair, flat irons it, or exposes it to harsh chemicals or UV rays, you can be causing serious damage to your hair.
Wearing wigs is a great way to give your hair a break. You can give your damaged hair time to heal, protect what is still healthy, and look great in the process. Many celebrities wear wigs because their natural hair is severely damaged from years of abuse.

Convenience: Another reason to choose to wear a wig is convenience. Maintaining your natural hair can become a chore, especially if you have to blow dry it. You might also like to maintain a certain color which can cost money and take hours.
Styling and maintenance take time and effort and are not always welcome activities. Wigs require far less maintenance than natural hair and are easy to style.
Wigs might be a good choice for someone who wants hair that looks great with minimal effort.

Coverage of hair loss – When women experience hair loss or hair thinning, it can be extremely difficult to process. Culture places much importance on hair, often associating it with beauty, femininity, and strength. Hair loss can be devastating for some women, causing a cycle of shame, depression, and anxiety. Wigs can be a perfect solution to hair loss and thinning.

Whether hair loss is from chemotherapy, alopecia, trichotillomania, pattern baldness, or genetics, wearing a wig can help re-boot your self-esteem and make you feel and look your best.

Restoration of confidence: Having a good hair day can make everything better. If you are experiencing hair loss or thinning for any reason, donning a wig can do wonders for your confidence. It can truly make you feel your best without having to worry about what your natural hair looks like.

Fun – Wigs can also be fun. Hair loss or not, wearing a wig can allow you to experience different styles with ease and even take on different personalities! Many women who lose their hair because of chemotherapy, for example, use this time to try wigs of all shapes and sizes.
