The Most Shocking Celebrity Wig Transformations

Didn't think wigs were powerful? Here are some of the most shocking celebrity wig transformations to show you just how powerful wigs can be.

Nene Leakes

Nene Leakes and blonde wigs go hand in hand. Over the years, Nene's surprised us with wildly different iterations of her otherwise characteristic blonde style. This is why we couldn't choose just one of her shocking transformations to mention here.

Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid 

When the two models stepped out for the 2016 Balmain show wearing each other's usual hair colours, many were left reeling. While Kendall, usually known for the dark hair that was once a signature of the KarJenner Klan stepped out in a blonde wig, Gigi donned a dark brown unit. The move, orchestrated by Olivier Rousting and executed by Sam McKnight was actually a clever marketing tactic for Balmain's further expansion into the hair world through Balmain Hair Couture


Like most people, we love Queen Bey and think 99% of the time, her looks including her hair and wigs are near flawless. We've been shocked more than once by her array of different styles but one look in particular left us gaping: the bangs. The pin-up style, short fringe she debuted in Paris back in 2014 had the internet up in arms at the time.

Fast forward to now and the look is still widely debated and remembered, most notably in meme form. Despite how questionable the look might have been at the time (and still is), the fact that it's still talked about today speaks of how iconic it was.

Katy Perry

While Katy Perry isn't new to wigs (you just have to look at her videography for the proof) when she traded in her blonde pixie for a shoulder grazing curled wig, we were all stunned. The look by celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton was so well-loved, it garnered 2.6 million likes on Instagram.

Chrissy Teigen

She really wasn't joking when she said the wig life chose her! After sporting a gorgeous purple unit back in January, Chrissy Teigen has again surprised us by deviating from her usual honeyed tresses in favour of a bright pink style perfect for spring.
