Wig : What is it?


A wig is an artificial head of hair that can be made of human hair, horsehair, or synthetic materials.  It consists of a hair cap woven or injected with strands of hair. It is worn on the head for fashion, role-playing, disguise, cosmetic enhancement, and other stylistic reasons including religious and cultural observance. It is commonly worn to disguise baldness. It is a popular option for those suffering from temporary or permanent alopecia. It is available in different colors, hairstyles, and lengths.
