Our Favorite Celebrities Who Wear Wigs

Celebrities that use wigs

We look to our favorite celebrities as the ultimate guides to glamour. Not only do they have naturally amazing flair for fashion, they have the world’s absolute most talented stylists, fashion designers, and beauticians behind them. You simply can’t go wrong following the fabulous path of your favorite celebrities when deciding on your latest looks. And when we think of our favorite stars, we’re usually used to admiring, oohing, and awing over their natural beauty. That’s why it can sometimes come as a bit of a shock when we learn that our silver-screen favorites get some significant help looking so perfect. An amazingly surprising example of this is Keira Knightley. That’s right, our stunningly drop-dead gorgeous favorite wears a wig! And wow does she wear it well!

Recently, the mega-star actress shared that she had been suffering from hair loss. That’s not a total surprise since it had been relatively obvious that she always had fairly thin hair. She uses wigs on a daily basis to deal with her hair loss. That definitely explains how she was able to grow out and achieve such great volume with her lob cut so quickly. But it is a little surprising that she chooses to wear wigs considering her absolutely magnificent natural beauty. Here, we’re reminded that it’s not always just about how wigs can make you look to other people. Instead, wigs should also be worn to make yourself feel good. The amazingly instant confidence and sustainable self-esteem boost that automatically comes with donning a wig is an immeasurable positive. Wigs help people look the way they want to, the way they want to see themselves in the mirror. It’s not always about how we’ll be seen through other people’s eyes.

Knightley reported that she regularly rotates through different wigs to achieve different looks, both on and off the set. She says it’s fun to be able to achieve a completely different look from one day to the next. Of course, since she absolutely loves the wigs in her rotation, it’s sometimes hard for her to choose between them.

Knightly also highlighted another immense benefit of wearing wigs. They can prevent irreversible damage to your hair by allowing you to wear different hair colors without actually potentially damaging your hair from chronic hair dyeing. In Knightley’s case though, she started wearing wigs as a result of all the hair dyes she had to use throughout her acting career. “I have dyed my hair virtually every color imaginable for different films,” she told a leading fashion source. “It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So, for the past five years, I've used wigs, which is the greatest thing that's ever happened to my hair,” she added.

Knightly is proof that when you buy the right one, wigs can easily elevate one’s beauty, making it virtually effortless to achieve the glam gorgeousness everyone deserves, not just celebrities. We love Knightly for showing us that wigs are for everyone. Even our most beautiful celebrities need some help from wigs.

By now, we’ve seen our favorite celebrities morphed into countless different characters across all the engaging and excited roles we’ve come to love. It is easy to forget that they often use wigs to achieve that wonderful variety of looks. It is even easier to forget that they, too, can fall in love with the looks they’ve achieved in their movies. Wigs provide an easy and convenient way to achieve your dream look, every day!

So, if you frequently dye your hair, like to change the style of your hair often, or would like different lengths more often than what’s possible without living at your hair dresser, you should consider getting a wig—better yet, a few wigs, so you can rotate them from week to week for fabulous variety. You’ll not only be able to achieve flexible fab, you’ll also be doing a lot to prevent irreversible damage to your hair.

Other top celebrities who use wigs include Kylie Jenner, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, Zendaya, Sia, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Rihanna, and many more.

Go ahead and treat yourself to a complete set of multi-colored wigs, wigs with different textures, lengths, and styles. You deserve it!
