No physical attribute can perhaps play such a vital role in defining us than our hair. Our hairstyle plays a major role in defining ourselves to others, and is perhaps just as important as what we wear. Just as we may make assumptions about people based on what they wear, we may assume things about them based on their hair. Short, buzzy cuts can be seen as a sign of a practical, no-nonsense personality while longer manes can be seen as the hair of choice by people much more devoted to their appearance. Dyed hair is perceived similarly, and it is generally accepted that those with more bolder, brighter colours will have personalities to match. Similarly, we are all too aware of the various stereotypes associated with hair colour; ‘blondes have more fun’, redheads can be perceived as ‘fiery’, to name a few. These stereotypes not only form the basis of countless jokes, but have been observed to have real world implications as well. Hair for women also has become strongly rooted in femininity, and many cultures perceive a long mane as the biggest mark of this. A shaved head has been used as punishment for women throughout history, as it is seen as a way to take away their crowning glory.
However, what all of this doesn’t account for is the very large number of people who for medical reasons either do not have much hair to begin with, or have had it fall out. Cancer patients, for example see devastation wrecked upon their hair after sessions of chemotherapy and alopecia sufferers have sparse hair to begin with. Living in a society which associates beauty with hair so much, this can become a huge blow to the self esteems of such people. Living in such a beauty-centric society, even those of us with normal hair growth can begin to fret when we feel that our hair is thinning out. For those with ailments that lead to very heavy hair fall leading to baldness, this can be an absolute nightmare. They can begin to feel as if they are not good enough or beautiful enough and this can make their ordeals all the more painful. Watching this take place for children can be especially painful, as while adults can reassure themselves that beauty really does come from within, it may be harder to convince a child of that.
In such situations, wigs can be the best options. Wigs can be the best way that people can go back to looking and to a certain extent feeling the way that they did once and they can play a huge role in boosting self esteem. Wigs can let those of us who, due to whatever reason have no hair or sparse hair rock whichever kind of hairstyle that we want. After all, we feel our best when we look our best right? The wigs of today can actually look better than our natural hair itself, and can have all the lustre and shine that we’ve always dreamed of. These wigs can really help take some, if not all of the stress away from medical procedures and can help the wearers feel confident with themselves as they can now customise to their wishes such a huge part of their look.
Wigs nowadays come in all sorts of gorgeous colours and styles, so we can look just the way that we want to. What is more important than looks, however is the comfort that wigs can provide. Lace front wigs can be especially useful for those of us looking for a wig for medical reasons, as the lace mimics a natural hairline and looks so seamless with the scalp that the naked eye can never tell that it’s a wig! These natural looking wigs can help wearers reclaim their identity with no fuss, as wearers can even go swimming wearing these wigs!
