Christina Hendricks has been wearing hair pieces and wigs on a regular basis for some time now, but have you even noticed? I don’t watch the show “Mad Men” and I admit that when I have seen her on TV, my eyes have gone straight to her breasts because the media has made such a huge deal about her voluptuous figure. So when a few people mentioned to me that she wears hair pieces and toppers, I did some investigating and it’s totally, completely obvious that she wears hair pieces almost all the time! On the cover of most magazines she appears to be sporting full wigs!
Whereas Tori Amos rocks fiery red wigs, Christina Hendricks makes hair pieces her choice for achieving Hollywood hair. What’s crazy to me is that while Christina is well known for her red hair, hardly anyone on hairstyle blogs, or on the internet in general, mentions that her hair is actually fake! While a lot of female celebrities wear hair pieces on top of their head, it’s usually extremely difficult to tell, which leaves regular people like me feeling like celebrities get all the breaks. So I’m ecstatic that Christina Hendricks has no fear facing Hollywood with supplemental hair. Celebrities really are just like us!
In this first photo you can see Christina Hendricks with her real hair – her hair appears to be thinning slightly. She is 36 now, and I found photos of her in early acting roles from about ten years ago, and she had thin hair then too, so even though she’s known for her big hair, it doesn’t appear that she’s ever actually had big hair (nor is she a natural red head). Below I will show several photos of her with various hair pieces, extensions, and wigs. Although she looks great in all of these pictures, it slightly scares me how blatantly obvious her hair pieces are. You would think a celebrity hair piece maker would know how to give Christina hair that looks totally real – with real parts, and pieces that blend seamlessly with her real hair. Since she sometimes wears her hair naturally without supplemental hair, obviously the hair pieces she wears clip on the top of her head, which is exactly what I soon plan on getting.
In my hair replacement article, one of the challenges mentioned was that it can be hard to wear clip on pieces that look natural – that don’t look like they are just sitting on the top of your head. I want to get a piece that has a realistic looking part (which is lacking in all of the hair pieces Christina is wearing). I also plan on getting a hair piece with bangs because the other tell-tale sign Christina Hendricks is wearing hair pieces is that in some of her photos you can see where her real hair starts in the front, and where the supplemental hair begins an inch or so back from her hairline. So why do you think her hair pieces aren’t that real – does she have a bad hairstylist, or is it that difficult to get a totally realistic hair piece?
In this photo Christina is showing her real hair, but with hair extensions that give her hair length on the bottom. The hair extensions are obvious because her real hair is short, and the extensions are not an exact match for her hair color.
Christina is wearing a hair piece attached to the top of her head. You can slightly see where her real hair peaks through at her hairline, and then a piece without a visible part gives her fullness on the top.
In this photo it appears that Christina’s real hair is brushed up and then a hair piece sits behind her hairline to add volume and length to her hair.
Wow look at those awesome boobs! This is why it took me this long to realize Christina Hendricks was wearing hair, because even though her hair is fire engine red, it’s not the first thing that grabs my attention!
She’s wearing a really obvious topper or wig in this photo. Her hair has no part at all!
Due to the length of Christina’s hair here, it’s probably a wig, or she could be wearing a topper plus super long hair extensions. This is her on the cover of New York Magazine.
This has got to be a full-on wig.
Christina Hendricks out and about on the street, which means she probably wears hair pieces most of the time in her real life – not just when she’s on the red carpet. You can slightly see where the hair piece just sits on the top of her head.
This photo sort of freaks me out because her hair looks bad and really fake. It looks like her brown roots grew out, and the hair piece doesn’t match them. This makes me nervous because if a famous celebrity can’t get realistic looking hair, what about me?
So what do you make of Christina Hendricks wearing hair pieces and wigs in her regular life, and on the red carpet? Since a lot of the hair pieces are so obvious, do you think she cares if the whole world knows her hair is fake? Or do you think she doesn’t realize how obvious her supplemental hair looks? Or maybe since half of Hollywood wears extensions, she feels like hair toppers are no different. I’m sure most people have no clue she wears hair, though, and just thinks she’s another lucky celebrity blessed with perfect hair. Either way I’m excited that a popular celeb is showing the world she’s not afraid to wear hair pieces. And the fact that she has thinning hair has not hurt her career or popularity.
