Why are Wigs So Popular All of a Sudden?

Hair is, for most of us, our crowning glory. It defines femininity and a good hair day really boosts our self-esteem. But sadly, this is why wearing a wig has often had a stigma attached to it.

People suffering from hair loss can feel self-conscious about wearing a wig, but the good news is, wigs are becoming increasingly popular. They are no longer just an option for people who have hair loss or who are recovering from an illness. Lots of people are jumping on the bandwagon.

So why are wigs so popular all of a sudden?

The rise of the influencer

Head over to Instagram and you’ll see some gorgeous wigs on influencers and celebs right, left, and centre. They rave about their wigs and where they got them, and this makes them more attractive to a wider audience. They are no longer just a fancy dress option at Halloween, they’re an everyday accessory and fashion statement.

There are so many choices available

As wigs become more of a fashion accessory, there’s no reason why you can’t have a wig to match your favourite outfit and your personal style. There are so many different types and styles of wig available now and you can try new hairstyles and hair textures without the hassle or commitment.

It’s easy to find your perfect wig

Depending on what you want, it’s really easy to find your perfect wig, from cheaper synthetic options via wholesalers or online retailers to 100% custom-fit wigs that will make you look amazing.

Not only that, wigs are perfect for busy lives. No more wrestling with hair that won’t behave every day, just put on your wig and go. When you get one, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!

You can disguise hair thinning or loss

Many women who are suffering from hair thinning or loss opt to wear a wig to disguise it until their natural hair grows back. Wigs are a great option, but you must remember that wearing a wig is not an excuse to forget about looking after your natural hair.

Wigs protect your natural hair

Wearing a wig can give your natural hair a much-needed break from heat styling or chemicals, especially if you are trying to regrow it. Sometimes your hair just needs a break and a wig is a great solution.
