Benefits of Wig-Wearing as a Millennial

Ladies, Ladies. Now I know there are those women out there that are like “Um, wigs are for old people.” Well I’m here to tell you no, honey…it’s for everyone. Even your daughter is wearing your lacefront. I used to work at a beauty supply store and I fell in love with working in the wig section and I helped sell wigs for all types of woman – young, old, disabled, you name it.

Let me start with how I first became fond of wig-wearing though because I too thought wigs were for the aunties or grannies. I had a horrifying experience in high school where I became bald at the age of 14. Thankfully my grandmother took me to the beauty supply were we bought me a wig. There began my introduction to the wig industry.

As years passed, I began to experiment with colors and styles, textures and types, and soon enough I became OBSESSED. I will say the celebrity influence helped out a lot with feeling more comfortable wearing wigs; and I’m not talking about just Nicki Minaj. It’s like it became more common on tv, in movies, and in the music industry especially within the Black community.

Enough about me though, let’s talk benefits because that’s what you’re reading this for right? Here are some reasons why wigs are beneficial for Millennials:

  1. Protective Style (If done correctly)

Anytime you wear a wig it is highly recommended that you wear a wig cap. It helps protect your hair against pulling or snagging that may be caused by the wig. I do also recommend that to braid your hair or slick it back into a ponytail to ensure that your wigs lay flat because if not it will look like your hair is bulking underneath the wig.

They come in three colors that best fit your skin tone for your scalp for the wigs that may show lace so buy whichever may seem fit for your liking and they’re only a dollar.

2. Endless Styles

The options are ENDLESS ladies! I can be curly-haired today and have a straight bob tomorrow. I can attend a girls night out with my body waves and go to the beach in braids or twists next weekend. I can go dark with black for work and wear my spicy red style for my date right after. You can choose whatever you like, however you like. There are wig experts at beauty supply store locations that can help you find the perfect wig for you, or you can watch the wonderful ladies of YouTube that post wig reviews so that way you can see which wig is worth buying. Beware some wigs do not fit all, so it’s best to ask if a wig is big head friendly or not. Trust me, I know from experience.

3. Convenience & Cost-Effective

I don’t know about you but there have been many occasions where I have needed a quick look for a party or a trip and I just didn’t have the bands($$) to get a sew-in or a lacefront wig glued or sewn in my head. So I would like to thank the creators of half-wigs and full-cap wigs because you are literally my lifesavers. Also, I don’t have to spend that much on the actual wig itself. I can go get a nice wig (temporarily because synthetic wigs don’t last that long), for like $25-$50, which isn’t that bad honestly. Now if you end up liking three styles and can’t decide on which one you want so you end up buying all three, then you might have a problem..

4. Customization

Did you know that one of the greatest things about a wig is that you don’t have to wear it straight out the package? Yes, girl it is all about the customization. You can alter the wig to your liking without feeling bad about it. You can add you some baby hairs, create a bang, and more. It’s too long, then cut it. It’s too curly then straighten it. If it’s to shiny, throw some baby powder on it and call it a day. Some women pluck the parts of a wig to make it look more realistic and add makeup to the lace to match their skin tone. Now if you aren’t into synthetic wigs there are human hair choices available as well. These wigs you can not only customize with length and texture but color as well. You can not dye all synthetic wigs, although some can take to color.
