5 A-List Celebrities Who Wear Wigs

Hair loss is incredibly common. In fact everyone will experience hair loss at some point in their lives, providing they live long enough. It seems as though almost every male movie star has had some hair restoration, but I was surprised to find out how many celebrities also wear hair pieces. Take a look at these…

1. Beyonce Knowles

Reason: uncontrollable hair

It seems like it has become extremely common for female pop stars to wear wigs regularly. I was unaware that Beyonce Knowles wears a wig though. It seems like she has several variations of hair pieces and they look to be done very well. Here though you can see where the glue has crinkled on her skin as she sings a loud note. This is a lesson for her wig makers and make-up artists to learn and figure out a solution for, as it doesn’t look good at all in photographs. In fact I imagine some of Beyonce’s younger fans will ask their parents what has happened to Beyonce’s face, thinking that something has gone wrong with her.

Why does Beyonce wear wigs? Beyonce has naturally thick hair, so she’s not covering up thinning hair. However, the singer prefers straight, shiny hair to curly hair and Beyonce naturally has very curly Afro hair. While she can use straighteners and oil treatments to make her hair straight and shiny, dancing vigorously on stage won’t keep her hair like that for long, so a wig may make sense in many cases.

  1. When I was young, my dad worked for Universal. I was told that all stars on TV and in films wear wigs. For one thing, when you’re filming a movie, the star’s hair has to look the same in every shot… and they don’t always film things in sequence.

  2. Robert Pattinson wore wigs while filming Twilight because he shaved his head before they were done taping. It didn’t have anything to do with hair loss.
