Women's wigs come in every imaginable style, color, and length. They are designed to help you dress as a celebrity, a character, or just to change your look. No matter what costume you're wearing, a wig can help take it to the next level. If you want to dress up like someone famous then it's important to match their entire look as best you can. Costumes are often available that let you duplicate an iconic style, like the white Marilyn Monroe dress that was blown upwards in The Seven Year Itch or the pink gown she wore when singing Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend. Those dresses are famous, but so is Marilyn Monroe's total look—including her hair styles. You'll need a wig to pull them off.
Pop and rock stars have hairstyles that can often require a wig to duplicate. Think of all the crazy and colorful hair in Lady Gaga and Katy Perry videos. Madonna, Joan Jett, Blondie, and the Spice Girls all make great costumes and all require just the right wig to pull it off. Period costumes require wigs too. From the American or French Revolutions to most decades of the 20th century, hairstyles were unique and recognizable. From flappers to 50s poodle girls, hippies to disco divas, not to mention 80s New Wave and glam, there are wonderful costumes and amazing wigs.
Clowns, geishas, Na'vi, the elderly, monsters, and so many other characters costumes need a good wig for women to be done right. But sometimes you just want a slightly different look. Many costumes don't require any particular hair style or color. But since you're dressing up you might as well change your hair too. It will give you a whole new attitude.
