A wig a day keeps the damage awayCharee Magazine

With more and more of us experimenting with the latest beauty trends, it seems as though nothing is off-limits. On any given day on a busy high street, there will be girls with hair extensions, false eyelashes, bright lipstick and HD brows. The number of beauty bloggers on the internet is growing every day with self-professed beauty gurus keen to share their favourite looks and products with us. YouTube is awash with such gurus recreating extreme looks that they have seen on the catwalk or from a particular era, and it seems as though we are more liberated than ever when it comes to our beauty routine.

However, there seems to be one final taboo that is virtually unheard of among young, healthy women, and that is the wearing of wigs. It sounds weird, right? Hair extensions are widely accepted as part of an everyday grooming routine but even the very mention of the word ‘wig’ seems to spark confusion amongst even the most avant-garde of fashionistas and I’m not altogether sure why that is. High profile celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are no strangers to wigs and they seem like the perfect solution for people who want a new look but don’t want to destroy their hair in the process.

I have been bleaching my hair since I was 14 years old. When I was 17, I made a snap decision and dyed it brunette, kept it that way for about a year and then desperately wanted to be blonde again. Of course, the process was not easy. It is ridiculously hard to strip colour of out of dark hair, especially if you don’t want to suffer from extreme hair breakage and loss in the process. Anyway, eventually I managed to get my blonde locks back but, being the fickle creature that I am, I was constantly wondering, what would my hair look like pink, black, purple? Of course, adding more colour to my hair was not an option if I ever wanted to be blonde again, and so I did the next best thing: I bought a selection of wigs.

Everyone was freaked out. My friends thought it was weird, and when I told a guy that was chatting me up in a bar that my long black hair was actually a wig, his mouth dropped to the floor in horror. I just don’t get why something so wonderful is considered to be so odd! Wigs are cheap (I get mine off Amazon for ?10-?20), can change your entire look in an instant, and are the perfect solution to bad hair days! They’re perfect for those of you that lust after crazy coloured locks but aren’t quite brave enough to permanently colour your hair, and a wig is far less damaging than constantly exposing your hair to different dyes and products!
Seriously ladies, wigs are beauty’s best kept secret, and if you haven’t yet discovered them you’re missing out.
