Would You Wear a Wig?


I'm wiggin' out today. First, I saw Britney the cover of next month's (generously Photoshopped) Allure, and was entranced by her hair. Of course, it's a wig—but it looks natural and luxurious, and quite beautiful. On the other end of the spectrum are these hilarious dog wigs, which—well, you just have to see for yourself.

This got me thinking about wigs in general. I've only worn them for Halloween (Supergirl, Tippi Hedren in The Birds), so they've been ten-dollar cheapies that looked obviously fake. But high-quality wigs, which are often made of human hair, are convincing and cool. I think it would be fun to try out a Louise Brooks bob one day, then try a Farrah Fawcett feathered 'do the next. And of course, for women who've lost their hair because of cancer treatments, wigs can provide comfort and confidence (just ask Beautiful Lengths spokesperson Hilary Swank, who's growing out her hair for a wig right now). So I want to know: Would you wear a wig outside of a costume? And if so, what would you wear?
