Famous Wig Wearers

A wig is a head of hair made from horse hair, human hair, wool, feathers, buffalo hair, or synthetic materials which is worn on the head for fashion or various other aesthetic and stylistic reasons, including cultural and religious observance. The industry choice, however, is yak hair, which is not only inexpensive, but close in consistency and appearance to human hair as well. The word wig is short for periwig and first appeared in the English language around 1675.

Some famous wigwearers are Terry Wogan, Bruce Forsythe, Michael Fabricant, Mo Mowlam, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Cher, Miley Cyrus and Andre Agassi, who wore a wig during the early 1990s to conceal his baldness.
