Wigs and toupees are widely used during film production to instantly create a new look, enabling the Hair & Makeup Artist (Stylist) to pull off several hairstyle changes throughout the day. To have to do this with their own natural hair would simply take too long.
Let's face it, time is money to a film producer, so wigs are the savior of the day enabling the actress (or TV presenter) to switch between styles quickly and with minimum fuss. Wigs and toupees are also vital for Stuntmen and Stuntwomen to look like their character and perform multiple retakes. Whatever you need a wig for, be it for cosmetic reasons, to create a temporary new look, for a special event or party, or for professional reasons, the variety of styles is truly mind boggling. One of the first women to wear a wig on and off stage was Marilyn Monroe and some of the most famous wigs were designed for Miley Cyrus, Tina Turner, Dolly Parton.
Some of the most famous toupees have been worn by Nicolas Cage and John Travolta.
