Seven Iconic Celebrity Wig-Wearers

By Morgan Celebs and music icons often flourish in radiant, goddess-length locks one day, and with a flick of their strands, an adorable pixie cut the next. Then, their dynamite hair sprouts a magical six inches days later and turns into a wild color during the process. Either celebrity is wizards, or they’re choosing to revel in the diversity of wigs. For many years, celebrities have housed myriads of hairstyles in their expansive closets. Let’s explore some of the stars embracing the beauty, versatility and stylish advantages of wigs.

Dolly Parton

If you’ve been following CysterWigs for a while, it’s no secret that we love Dolly! Parton, who started performing professionally at age 10, started wearing wigs in 1973. She once said, “I used to try to keep my own hair teased as big as I like it, and having the bleach and all of that, it just broke off. I thought, ‘Why am I going through all that? Why don’t I just wear wigs? That way, I never have a bad hair day! I have a big hair day, but not a bad hair day.” We totally hear you, DP!

Diana Ross:

There are not many in the world more famous for transformative hairstyles than Queen Ross. Diana took full creative advantage of wigs during her time with The Supremes and on, and had a unique, noteworthy new look nearly every day. She’s never been afraid of volume or going for over the top styles like the huge flower garden wig that she wore in 1969. When it comes to full-on glamour, Ms. Ross is the boss.

Christina Aguilera:

The late 90s “Genie in a Bottle” sensation began experimenting with wigs in the early 2000s when her hair started accruing extensive damage from extensions and bleaching. Her introduction into the wig world proved to be a catalyst for many different styles, and she continues to wear them through all aspects of her continuing career.


From her Native American headdress to her strawberry red locks, Cher could write the book on wig fashion. As her headwear is often the most noticeable part of any of her ensembles, she has a long history of keeping things interesting with whimsical, unconventional, and cutting-edge styles.

Keira Knightley:

Keira tapped into the wig world in 2011 when she started to toy with different locks due to the movie industry requiring her to dye, bleach, and lop off her hair, causing the star hair loss and extensive damage. Turning to wigs solved Keira’s scorched-hair dilemmas, and she now is an avid proponent of wig-wearing.

Katy Perry:

Especially memorable for her dazzling hair as a judge of American Idol—donning everything from a jet black Snow White do’ to a Marilyn Monroe bob (and nearly everything in between)—the pop star keeps the world of hair zesty and entertaining, continually showcasing the colors of her vibrant personality.


One of the more modern influences on the music spectrum, Sia has transported wig-wearing to a new echelon with face-covering, eccentric wigs. Sia chooses to hide her face because of the criticism modern-day celebrities face in the wake of social sharing platforms, and her collection of wigs help her integrate her beliefs, personality, and individual style into a wearable accessory.

We normally do not recommend cutting the extended nape off of a wig because it was made specifically for the style, but that's not saying you can't do so. We have had clients write in stating that they have cut the nape felt off completely with enough space for the adjusters and they said the wig fit much better in the back.

What do you mean when you say in your videos that a wig has a "natural amount of volume"?

November 18, 2020

These thinner wigs also tend to appeal to folks (like me) who have gradual profound hair loss over a long period of time. My hair started falling out in clumps when I was 17. Because of this, I used to feel very self-conscious when I began wearing wigs for the first time, because I went from virtually no hair to – BOOM – <em>lots</em> of hair. It felt hot, heavy, and unnatural . . . but over time, I began to realize that, because of my size, these more voluminous styles actually looked the best on me.
