You will have more styling options with this trending and revolutionary hair extension piece known as a wig! No need to worry about your edges showing or tracks being exposed!
I know when I said “wig,” most of you dolls clutched your pearls. Well, wigs have been upgraded tremendously since the 80s: No more overly thick hairlines or really shiny looks. Wigs have revolutionized from the wiggy look to versions that are so realistic that no one even notices they’re not the wearer’s locks.
Now that we have addressed the elephant in the room, the next question people usually ask is, “Will my wig fall off?” Not only did the wigs upgrade in appearance but also in the security department. No more bobby-pinning the wig to your hair; wigs now come with combs and a custom elastic band that fits your head comfortably.
So if you workout, play sports or simply want to just let your hair blow in the wind, you can do just that all while feeling confident that your wig will stay in place.
