Big wig hair is very in

January 14, 1993|By Harper's Bazaar

Wigs are a hot fashion accessory for the '90s -- but not necessarily what a woman should wear on a hot date.

Big hair is verging on chic, according to Tina Gaudoin. beauty editor at Harper's Bazaar, and women are turning to everything from falls and pieces to outrageous full wigs in wild colors. The problem can arise when you have to take them off.

"A wig can give you a complete personality change. No one recognizes you, you can be as outrageous as you like," said New York makeup artist Moyra Mulholland.

For women who prefer a more conservative route, there are pieces, falls and three-quarter wigs that will build up or fill out your own hair.

"Pieces can add volume and height -- they're very versatile," said hair and wig stylist Danilo, of New York's Pierre Michel Salon.

"If you don't have bangs, you can quite literally clip them on -- they look great, especially under hats."

Wigs made with a combination of real and synthetic hair are increasingly popular among fashion models because of their durability and malleability.

L But if you want that extra-big look, only fake hair will do.
