There’s something so freeing and easy about embracing the gray hair look with a wig. Not only can you let your bio hair grow out the gray in the process, but you can customize the trend to fit your style. And the best thing about a gray wig is you can rock it at any age! So think about it like this – if you don't want to spend hours in a salon with up to two or three separate visits, double processing your bio hair platinum to get a smoky gray look, you can choose a wig instead. It’s that easy!
There are many different styles of gray wigs: sleek, curly, straight, and voluminous. In addition, you can try the ombré style with a gradient dark to light look or a light golden gray perfect for spring.
We’ve narrowed down five great gray wigs for spring.
