Celebrity wigs have been around as long as there have been celebrities

Royalty throughout history, being the celebrities of their time, often wore wigs. Today, Hollywood royalty needs to make as good an impression on their fans as the royalty of old did. It’s natural for them to use wigs to continue the tradition.

Actresses and other performers have used wigs as costumes while presenting their craft. These wigs either fit characters or are used to amuse and entertain in other ways. Picture the classic Cher with her elaborate wigs complementing her Bob Mackie gowns as she performs in concert.  Or envision Tina Turner when she strutted on stage with those legs that just wouldn’t quit and her lioness mane. Today we have Laga Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce working the wigs into their performances. Those are examples of wigs on celebrities while they work. They can be flamboyant and even startling. But the real news in Hollywood is how popular wigs are among celebrities even when they aren’t working. Nobody in Tinsel Town wants to be caught by the paparazzi on a bad hair day. Wigs and extensions are part of the everyday life for the rich and famous. There has been a boom in the use of wigs among celebrities even when they’re not onstage.

However, wigs that celebrities wear everyday are not reserved for them alone. A quick search of the Internet finds that manufacturers to use celebrity names and style on many lines of wigs. If you need an example of this, just search “Beyonce Wigs” and you can be sporting one of her elegant looks in no time. There are dozens available online. Or if you’re in a wilder mood, Lady Gaga wigs are sprouting up all over the Internet. If you’re a more mature person, the classics like Raquel Welch and Eva Gabor wigs are still popular and available there also. You can even go retro with a Marilyn wig if you want to make a bold statement. There is a celebrity wig out there for every woman who admires a star.

Choosing a celebrity wig is the same as choosing any wig

Probably the most important thing to consider is that the color of wig you choose matches your own coloring. For at least the first time you try a celebrity wig, pick a color that is as close as possible to your own hair color. You may discover in time that you can go bolder, but in the beginning, try something a little closer to home. You want the celebrity wig to enhance you, not make you an obvious poor imitation of a star. Choose thoughtfully and wisely. You don’t need to look like Rihanna. You want to look like your own beautiful self only wearing Rihanna’s hairstyle. Don’t forget to learn about the wig’s quality and find out what it takes to care for it before you buy it.

A celebrity wig can help provide you with a little star power of your own. Go out there and dazzle them.
