Kelly Rowland's Wig evolution
Although MOST women usually shy away from the subject, Kelly Rowland has revealed that she is head over heels "in love" with wigs.
The singer, who has sported a number of funky hairstyles during her time in the spotlight, said that her fascination with hairpieces has not always been smooth sailing.
"I tried a blonde wig once and I looked like I should have been wearing a tacky dress with my legs out. I looked crazy. Even a light brown hair colour doesn't work for me because it becomes the same colour as my face," she told America's Essence magazine.
"I'm in love with wigs. I get them custom-made, and I have my hairstylist shape them to my head. I can go from short to long in less than a minute!,"
The 30-year-old star, also admitted that she one day hoped to radically shave her head.
"One day I'd like to cut off all my hair - really close - shaven to my head. It's such a really beautiful look," she said. (Dont go 2 far now!)
And the former Destiny’s Child singer is so fond of her selection of hairpieces that she has even given them nicknames, the Daily Mail has learned.
A friend said: ‘Kelly loves her wigs and they allow her to try out a different look.
‘She’s quite affectionate about them and even has names for them.
Haha Kelly you are so funny!
Wigs may still get a bad rap, but they’re a fun, quick, and no-commitment way to try a new style. For those looking for something that doesn’t look like “OMG, I’M A WIG!”, there are so many quick weave options at beauty supply stores.

To make sure your piece looks as natural as possible, do what hairstylist Derek J recently told Jet magazine, “The first thing you want to do is shampoo [the wig] before you start wearing it. When you buy a wig, it has that shiny look that says ‘I’m a wig.’ It’s a dead giveaway to any kind of fake hair. If it’s synthetic, you can use dish detergent and condition it with fabric softener. It’s a fabric so if you shampoo it like it’s real hair, it won’t work correctly. Let it hang to dry and it will look fabulous.”
Are you gonna try a wig for fall?
