    The new Twilight movie Eclipse premiers this week (sound of cheering girls) and we got some juicy details!...
    The vampiress Victoria, who was originally played by actress Rachelle Lefevre...
    ... will now be played by actress Bryce Dallas Howard:

    You may know Bryce as director Ron Howard's daughter, but she was also in movies such as M. Night Shaymalan's The Village and Lady in the Water. The Victoria character has long reddish waves in her hair, but actually looks similar to Bryce in the face. However, Bryce stated that - before she knew she got the part - she had dyed her shorter hair dark. To play the perfect Victoria, she would need to wear a wig!

    For the role of Victoria, Bryce wore a gorgeous and long, red curly wig. Because Bryce's hair is naturally wavy, thick, and an orange-red color, the wig was totally believable on her.

    If you like the 'Victoria' style, try one of these wigs from Wigs.com:
    Enjoy the Twilight: Eclipse movie! From Wigs.com - The Wig Experts

    At the 2010 BET Awards this weekend, dozens and dozens of great presenters and performers graced the red carpet and stage. Queen Latifah hosted the show with frequent wardrobe changes inspired by a few of her well known looks: the prison warden character 'Mama' from Chicago, her jersey-wearing character from recent hit Just Wright, as well as cornrows and oversized clothing from her rapper days. She even wore a leopard print and feathered mumu with a wavy blonde wig - a costume that resembled her 'Motormouth Maybelle' character from the 2007 movie Hairspray.

    In addition to winning the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Nicki Minaj also performed. She wore a crazy frizzed-out platinum wig, and then later shined in a vibrant orange style.

    Perhaps many an attendee were wearing wigs, but these wigs sure made a statement! For more pictures and stories from the 2010 BET Awards, click here.

    At Wigs.com, we obviously love wigs. But we think that Bald is Beautiful too! Countless celebrities have shaved their head for movie roles...

    Sigourney Weaver in Alien 3 (1992)

    Demi Moore in G.I.Jane (1997)

    Kate Blanchett in Heaven (2002)

    Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta (2005)

    Cameron Diaz wore a bald cap for My Sister's Keeper (2009)

    Hot model Amber Rose (Kanye West's main squeeze) keeps her hair buzzed and closely-cropped all the time! She even dyes it blonde. Very edgy and chic.

    With all the singers and stars going partially shaved lately - such as Rihanna, Adam Lambert, and Cassie, to name a few - we wonder if it may be the next big trend!

    Just like clothing, hairstyles can be slimming too!
    Of course the style or cut of your wig won't actually slim your face - it's all an illusion, right? But to give your face a more slender appearance, follow these simple rules:

    1. Avoid straight lines in your cut. Choose a wig with more shapely curves that compliment and soften the face shape, instead of working against it. This will also draw attention to facial features such as your eyes and lips in a good way.

    (Spotlight by Raquel Welch)

    2. Avoid straight-across bangs. Though blunt cut bangs may still be in style, they tend to shorten and widen the appearance of the face. Show off your forehead (where we don't gain weight). Try side-swept bangs instead as they will make your face appear longer and thinner.

    (Rianna by Rene of Paris)

    3. Avoid blunt haircuts. Blunt hairstyles like the geometric bob cut that Katie Holmes and Rihanna have worn will harshen your features and widen your face. Instead, opt for a longer, textured and layered cut. Go for softness and movement.

    (Monique by Jon Renau)

    We know what you're thinking: What were wigs like back in the day? And how did wigs come about?
    Wigs.com did some research for you on the history and the centuries-old art of wigs...

    Wigs were first worn centuries ago in ancient Egypt by kings and royalty to display their nobility as well as shield their shaved heads from the sun. Of course long ago, technology was limited, and Egyptian wigs were made with plant fibers, animal hair, and similar materials. The Greeks and Romans also wore wigs for religious purposes, to show nobility, and in the theater.

    Starting in the early 17th century, the well-known oversized, curly wigs became fashionable. Again, a sign of the upper class, these wigs were mainly worn by men. The wigs were often very heavy, made with natural human hair; horse and goat hair were cheaper alternatives used.

    In the 18th century, men's wigs were powdered for that recognizable white color . At that time, women did not wear wigs but still had their hair coiffed and supplemented with artificial hair... hairpieces and extensions! What was wig powder made of back then? Finely ground starch that was scented with orange flower or lavender. On occasion - for that little extra something - the wig powder was colored violet, pink, yellow or blue. How creative!

    Some famous wig-wearers:

    King Louis XIV of France really made a splash in men's fashion with his lavish wigs.

    Queen Elizabeth I of England famously wore many red wigs, most in the 'Roman' style. 

    Marie Antoinette – in the French court of Versailles, women often wore large, elaborate and sometimes themed wigs such as the stereotypical "boat poufs" that were in vogue during those days. Marie Antoinette and the ladies of the court frequently wore extensions and hairpieces in these over-the-top hairstyles.

    Over the last several decades, wigs have risen in popularity, but are generally worn for different reasons than in the past. Wigs are frequently worn for medical reasons or as an easy alternative to many hair replacement therapies. On another end of the spectrum, wigs are worn by male cross-dressers, for costume purposes, and even by women who just don't feel like styling their own hair - they just like wearing wigs!

    Stars such as Dolly Parton, Raquel Welch, and Cher have really popularized wigs. Wigs are also worn for television, theater and film so that the actor may fully feel and look like their character.

    So there you have it... a brief history of wigs! Learn even more by clicking here, and stay tuned for more great features from Wigs.com - The Wig Experts.

    So what’s the big deal with 'Real' hair versus synthetic fiber? In truth, there are pros & cons to both types of hair - whether you're purchasing wigs, extensions or hairpieces. 
    To name a few: you can treat human hair wigs just like your own; you can cut, color and style them as you would the hair on your own head! Plus they feel soft and look most natural. However, human hair wigs are more expensive, in part due to the rising demand for quality hair. Synthetic fiber wigs are ready to wear right out of the box and are generally very affordable. The hair even stays put in bad weather. However, most synthetic wigs cannot be styled with heat tools or dyed. 

    Watch our Human Hair vs Synthetic video to learn the features & benefits of real hair and synthetic fiber, so you can make an informed decision when purchasing.

    We just got our hands on the latest pictures from Jon Renau’s 2010 Wig Collection. Not only are they gorgeous, but wearing wigs from the new line was a familiar face...

    Fo from Cycle 13 of the TV show America’s Next Top Model!

    With such a memorable look that’s also versatile, we recognized Fo right away. You may remember Fo from ANTM as the stunning mixed-race model with medium-length hair; until Tyra's famous makeovers had her chop her locks short...

    From Cycle 13, America's Next Top Model

    But Fo looks great in every Jon Renau wig she wears - long, short, dark, light colored. Fo is the ideal wig model.
