The word ‘wig’ is synonymous with celebrities like Dolly Parton, Kim Kardashian, and Lady Gaga, to name a few, who frequently don a wig, head gear, or an elaborate hair accessory. Wigs have come a long way – from being a symbol of one’s social status and wealth to an ornament of convenience and fashion. However, wigs are not just a fashion accessory for celebrities and young girls.
