Choosing Joy with Wigs: Community Stories

One customer shares how a wig brought her joy just in time for her daughter’s bridal shower: 

“Since Covid, I have lost a considerable amount of hair. I was very apprehensive and scared to wear a wig, but with my daughter's Bridal Shower, I was desperate to try anything to improve my look. To my surprise, everyone was complimenting me on my hair and could not believe it was a wig. I was so conscientious about my hair loss and elated how natural the wig looked on me. It felt light and airy and fit my head perfectly -- I could not have asked for anything better!”

In this first video, ambassador Lisa Mullins from @beautifulyouwigreviews shares three ways wigs brought her joy: 

A customer shares this heartwarming story about the moment she discovered the joy  wigs can bring: 

“When I was fairly new to wearing wigs and losing my hair, I worried about people knowing it was a wig or being treated differently. I was definitely treated differently in a good way! Whenever I wear a wig, I’ll always get compliments on my hair and am asked who does it. Sometimes I wink and lift up the front and other times just say thank you or I just got it and leave them wondering. The first Christmas I wore a wig, my nieces were fascinated by it. They asked if they could hold it and try it on. To hear them tell each other they look so good felt like my heart would burst! These young girls not only felt beautiful, but they were showering each other with compliments. You could see confidence just in how their posture changed and the smiles on their faces. I’m elated that current and future generations no longer see alternative hair as something to hide or be ashamed of. I’m so grateful to the brave men and women who have selflessly put themselves out there to normalize wig-wearing. Wearing alternative hair is a personal choice. It may not be for everyone but for me, it makes me feel even more beautiful and confident. It also saves me oodles of time when I am getting ready by having perfect hair in a matter of seconds!”

In our next video, ambassador Mel B. from shares how wigs restored her confidence and identity: 

“I feel beautiful in my wigs. It brings me joy to be able to truly show my young daughter what confidence looks like.”
