Wigs: Not Just for Medical Use!

By: Robert Thomson

Wigs used to be bought mainly for medical reasons, such as cancer treatments and the like. Times change, however, and the times have brought us an entire industry of wigs used for matters of style.

Take, for instance, the Stars of Hollywood. No person in the world has ever grown out short hair to long hair in less than four months, yet the Stars manage to look like they have. How is it managed? Lace front wigs, human hair wigs, hairpieces, extensions and more turned that short, styled hair into beautiful, long locks.

The hair lengths and styles of the Stars are no doubt glamorous, but many think they can't be done outside of a $400 an hour salon. They'd be amazed at how many styles can be achieved with a little bit of ingenuity and wigs of all types.

In fact, wigs are used for a variety of reasons:

- Easy care hair for cheerleaders - Cheerleaders use many types of claw clip, interlock, ponytail and hair wrap hairpieces for a quick, cute look. Many curls, tight ringlets and even spunky, spiky looks can be attributed to the stylish use of wigs.

- Costumes - Costume wigs aren't just for Halloween, but for any time someone wants to be a little daring or a little exotic at times. Bright pink, vibrant red, powder blue and true gold and more, in a variety of lengths and styles, give many a demure individual the sassy, challenging, fun style they're looking for - for any occasion.

- Long hair to short - Many women are proud of their long hair, but sometimes want a different look. The choice comes down to using scissors or using wigs. Now, while they might want to have a different hairstyle occasionally, few are willing to go without their long hair to get it. Wigs make this hairstyle change easy, convenient and non-lasting.

- Short hair to long - Who doesn't occasionally long for a little length? Long wigs and hair extensions do what nature doesn't, turning short hair into long waves. Whether you want curly hair, wavy hair or straight hair, you can do it all in minutes with an extension or wig.

- Layers - The layered look is in, but many are unable to achieve it with the style they currently have. Hair extensions and top wigs set to different lengths can provide layers that look like they came out of a salon.

- Thinning areas - A woman's hair is one of her prides. It's also a place for insecurity when it's thinning. Hair enhancers, from wiglets to top wigs that blend in with natural hair, give women with thinning hair that extra confidence that makes them smile.

Let's not leave men out! Men, as well, take pride in their hair and many lose confidence in their looks when that hair starts thinning. With today's wigs, toupees and hairpieces, taking care of those thinning spots is easier than ever. No more "obvious" wigs; they blend with what hair the man does have to look as natural as they did ten years ago.

As you may have guessed by now, there are many types of wigs available for any hairstyle. Some are synthetic; others are made from human hair.

What's the difference?

Monofilament wigs are already styled and colored to match your needs. They're long lasting and hard to see, but are unable to be styled another way.

Wigs made of human hair, on the other hand, can be styled like normal hair. One wig or extension can be curled, straightened, colored and highlighted without the piece being ruined. Long lasting, versatile and hard to see, human hair wigs are the elite version.

Are you ready to live a little?

If you've been looking for a new hairstyle, but aren't sure what would look right on you, wigs are an excellent solution. Go sassy with long, smooth, brilliant red or grow out your short, straight hair in minutes with long, silky extensions that match your color. Take a walk on the wild side and see what beautiful looks you can achieve with wigs!
