Whether you’re a wig novice or a seasoned pro, getting asked if you’re wearing a wig is either no big deal or it can be mildly irritating. Read on for our top tips on how to answer THAT wig question .


Stick to the truth

With everyone from everyday people to celebs embracing wigs and making them a part of their daily beauty routines, the stigma around wigs has drastically dropped in recent years. We’ve gone from barely discussing them to having hundreds of YouTube videos available dedicated to wig styling alone. So when it comes to the million-pound question, simply answering with a ‘Yes’ is more than enough. After all, there’s no shame in wearing a wig no matter the reason!


Your hair, your business

At the end of the day, your hair much like everything else about you, is your business so if you don’t feel like answering the question for whatever reason, you have every right not to. Keep it moving and simply let them know it’s none of their business and if anyone has an issue with that, it's their problem, not yours. Thank U, next!

Ask why they want to know

When faced with that question, you might not flinch or your gut reaction can result in you feeling defensive as you question the motives behind why you were asked the question in the first place. If you’re stuck somewhere in the middle and unsure how to answer, asking why they want to know can help you decide whether to go for option 1 or 2 when faced with the question. In some cases, it might be genuine curiosity and in other cases, it can make the asker realise that they might have been overstepping their boundaries. Depending on how you feel about their reasoning, the choice is up to you on whether or not you answer the question.
