Wigs and Dating: Trimming the Stigma

By Morgan

The dating game isn’t the easiest to play. There’s a lot of effort that goes into the first few months of getting to know people and choosing how much information you give up in the process (old exes, your punk rock phase or the slight obsession that you have with cats) is ultimately up to you. But there are a few things you should never be shy about. One of those things is how you express yourself. And self-expression includes your wigs.

Dating with Wigs

When it comes to your makeup, shoes, clothes and accessories, you should feel completely comfortable with flaunting your innate style with anyone surrounding you! And the same rules apply if you like to wear wigs.

Wigs, like any other accessory, outfit, or hairstyle, are a part of your personality. And they’re becoming increasingly popular not just for hair loss, but for stylistic flexibility that allows for both men and women to bounce between looks. And when it comes to dating, just like removable makeup, wigs are just another extension of yourself.

Finding Confidence While Dating with a Wig

If you’re a little nervous about how your date will react to you wearing a wig, you can arm yourself with the basic fact that a wig is just another element of style. It’s as simple as that.

But honestly, there’s no need to explain yourself. In any dating situation, if the opposite party doesn’t accept you for who you are or what you wear, it’s time to move on and find someone better. Because odds are, their own lacking confidence and questioning the decisions of those around them isn’t going to be a great contributor to a new relationship.

Already Dating Someone and Want to Start Experimenting With Wigs?

If you’ve been wanting to step into the wig world and see what this delightfully hairy business is all about, you may have been a bit nervous to begin—especially if you already have a partner. Wondering what they’d think about you wanting to try a wig may be preventing you from taking new stylish steps.

When you’re feeling up to the conversation, it’ll be much easier than you think. It can go like this:

“I wanted to start exploring different hairstyles, and have been thinking about trying out a few different wigs or wig toppers. How do you feel about that?”

Odds are, there will be no hesitation. But if you get any negative pushback, that’s a bit of a relationship red flag. Remember that if you want to do something—wear a wig, get a piercing, or take up something new—don’t let anyone or anything hold you back. Stick to your roots, and let your true self shine through!

    I love this. I remember telling someone I was dating that I wore wigs. She asked me to grow my hair out. She also thought my idea of getting a tattoo was trashy. She is no longer in my life, and since then have met an amazing woman who embraces the wigs, and any tattoos I might get. So for me, I would just tell them, as if it is a favorite hat. if they have any negative response move on. There is someone better out there waiting for you and you wigs!

      You are so right Patty! That someone doesn’t have to love wigs or toppers for themselves but shares your love and excitement of things that are extensions of you. Now if they get excited for a wig sale, then that person is a keeper! 😉
