Burr, it’s cold (or should we say polar- vortexing) so why not….PUT A WIG ON IT?!

Wigs can be a women’s best friend. They are the ultimate way to experiment with hair color, style, or cut without having to manipulate your own hair. In the winter, they also serve as a great protective style against winter weather’s damaging effects. Personally, I’ve been experimenting with wigs as a way to let my hair take a break from the constant manipulating I do to it weekly. Here’s 13 different types of wigs from one of my favorite affordable wig companies It’s a Wig! Check out these really great units you can experiment with this winter to keep your tresses healthy and shielded from the elements.
