You CAN Get Kim's Cut…And There’s No Need For Scissors
Have you noticed that EVERYONE’S cut their hair lately? Kim K, Kate Bosworth, Sienna, Rita and Rosie H-W have all embraced shorter locks in recent weeks; it’s effortless and chic but if you’re honest, a bit scary, too. You’d love to give it a try, but what if it doesn’t suit you? Hair takes, like, AGES to grow. And you’re not very patient…
Here’s the thing: the A-list have a secret. Beyonce, Rihanna and Rita Ora often turn to wigs when they want to switch up their style. Even Kylie was snapped with dark cropped hair for the cover of a magazine (you didn’t think she’d actually cut it, did you?) and Jennifer Hudson donned a wig at this year’s Grammys. The A-list can have an elfin cut one day and a choppy bob the next, adding that extra bit of edge, all while keeping their real hair perfectly intact.
It’s totally doable if you fancy trying it for yourself too, with wigs available for as little as £30. Here are a few wig DOs and DON’Ts:
DO customise the cut and take your wig to a hairdresser to get it shaped and styled to suit your face.
DON’T wear a wig straight from the pack.
DO go for a natural looking hairline.
DON’T go too bulky at the crown; that just screams to the world “Hi everyone! I’m wearing a wig!”
DO know your measurement, you want the wig to fit your head perfectly.
DON’T believe the hype. Wigs are not hot and uncomfortable; with today’s wig technology they are lighter, cooler and more comfy than ever.
