I’ve written about female celebrities with hair loss, and celebrities that wear crazy wigs, but there are tons more female celebrities that wear wigs and hair pieces during their day-to-day lives, on the red carpet, and for their music performances. Just about every female celebrity in Hollywood wears wigs from time to time for movie roles, but I’m not going to list those here because that’s not usually the choice of the actress. This list will include female celebrities that choose to wear supplemental hair because they want to enhance or change their appearance (like Taylor Swift in this picture).
Later I’ll do a separate post about celebs that wear extensions to add length and volume. I know I have a slight obsession with celebrity hair, but I still feel like there’s a stigma to wearing a wig or hair piece, but if everyone would realize sooo many women in Hollywood wear hair, it will become more acceptable for regular women to do it too.
Female Celebrities who choose to wear wigs and hair pieces (all the time, or occasionally) to enhance their appearance:
Helena Bonham Carter
Holly Robinson Peete
Kat Von D
Kim Zolciak from Real Housewives
La Toya Jackson
Interesting wig tidbit: Actress Ginnifer Goodwin enjoys wearing her hair short and edgy and has a “wig clause” in her movie role contracts. She insists on wearing wigs for her roles, rather than having to grow her hair out and living with a hairstyle she doesn’t like while she’s off-set. In commercials for her new movie “Something Borrowed” you will see her wearing a wig in every scene.
Jennifer Lopez appears to switch out her real hair with a variety of wigs on “American Idol.”
Madonna sporting a short blonde wig.
Beyonce is always changing up her wig hairstyles.
Nicole Richie sporting a topper, or a topper plus extensions.
Fergie finally read my mind and got a wig or topper (plus took out her extensions)! This is from her 2011 “American Idol” performance.
I will update this list when I spot more stars wearing wigs. Please leave a comment below with the name of any celebs that I’ve missed.
