Kylie Jenner first wore a colorful wig in 2016, and shook the world without meaning to. Her followers and fans of the Kardashian-Jenner clan were impressed with her bold fashion statement, and since then Kylie has become an icon of celebrity wigs. Where does Kylie Jenner get her famous wigs from?
Kylie Jenner is said to purchase her wigs from The Wildform, a high quality wig company that uses only authentic human hair in the best conditions. The wigs have become so popular ever since Kylie began using them that consumers must participate in a waitlist to purchase any products.
Kylie considers that she started the colorful wig trend after her followers began copying her most iconic looks. They have become one of her signature looks, and Kylie has since then used colorful wigs less, even though she will sport one on occasion.
Of all the looks Kylie has sported throughout the years, her neon-green hair is the one that became the most recognizable. Green hair is not an easy look to wear, but Kylie made it work spectacularly. Her modern and edgy style separates her from her older sisters’ sexy yet slightly more conventional styles. While Kim Kardashian is also known for changing up her hairdos and trying the colorful wig trend, Kylie is the one who started it all and is credited for being a ‘trendsetter’.
Kylie herself has openly spoken on her love for wigs, and how she is to blame for the surge of the trend since she was first spotted wearing one. “I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs.”, Jenner stated. In the video below, Kylie shows viewers her closet and where she stores her coveted wigs.
She shows fans a few of her most famous options; the black bangs wig she wore to the VMA’s, the pastel green wig she wore to Sugar Factory, a short pastel blue wig, and the bleach blonde wig she wore for her 18th birthday party. She claims she considers herself a wig girl, since they are super easy and fun to use, as they can change your total look and style without the need of commitment.
The Wildform caters to multiple celebrities apart from Kylie Jenner such as Demi Lovato and Ciara. These wigs are made with 100% human hair, and contain no chemicals, natural sourcing, and are considered one a kind since no two strands of each hair are the same; they are all slightly different and fall together as naturally as any head of hair.
Each hair strand is hand tied, meaning it takes a meticulous amount of time to construct each wig. The base of the wigs are constructed from french lace, considered the finest material to be incorporated with wigs.
Lower quality wigs that are much more accessible in terms of price tend to have synthetic bases, that can be extremely itchy and uncomfortable.
The wigs come in all different styles, from long to short bobs; designed for all different preferences. The wigs tend to be highly expensive, since they are of the best quality. They range from between $2,000 to $8,000.
While Kylie was once considered the ‘king’ of celebrity wigs, she has now stopped wearing them as often since becoming a mother. Kylie is now more commonly seen wearing her hair natural, or using hair extensions that match her authentic color to make the hair appear longer and fuller.
Kylie is not the only person who favors The Wildform, and it is a common brand among adventurous celebrities who like to change their overall appearance. However, Kylie is best known for being the one who ‘started it all’. Kylie will always be known as one of the biggest celebrity influencers for the impact she made starting in 2016 and onward, those few years she was committed to wigs.
