Playing dress up has been a favorite pastime for children for ages. Why do we let go of the fun? International Wig Day has created a day where anyone and everyone can play along and wear a wig to change their appearance. You can choose to be silly, or serious. You can get a wig that will let you try out that haircut you’ve been thinking about, but aren’t sure if you are brave enough to do it. Now you have a reason and way to try it on for size!
History of Wig Day
Temashop, a costume store in Denmark, created this holiday to bring a little fun to life. Everyone can get into a rut with the steady pull and push of a busy life. They encourage people to get their co-workers and friends involved and really make the event something special! Men and women, girls and boys are all invited to join!
People often think that wigs are just for people who have lost their hair due to medical treatment or natural hair loss. It just isn’t the case. Many celebrities have been open in admitting that they use wigs as an accessory to their fashion choices. Actors have used wigs throughout history as part of their costumes. Some people say that certain wigs help them to adopt different attitudes.
How to Celebrate International Wig Day
The best part of celebrating International Wig Day is to get your friends involved! Get your work or school to go along as well and let the fun of the event last all day. There are many fun options for wigs at party and costume shops. If you need some inspiration, internationalwigday.org has a list of online shops you can check out.
Another way to celebrate is to pick your wig and dress on up to go out with your friends. Again, silly or serious is up to you. Just enjoy your friends and the atmosphere of where you choose to go. That is what the day is all about, reminding as many people as possible to just slow down and enjoy life.
Need more inspiration? Talk to your stylist and see what they are doing to celebrate! They may even be able to direct you to a local destination where there will be a gathering of those who will be getting their Wig On! Not only will you have a great time with your friends, but might make some new ones as well!
Is there a local charity that could use some funds? You could use the day of fun in the workplace to help. Perhaps a donation will allow each person to participate in International Wig Day and the proceeds could go to the charity! Fun and social awareness all in one. Everyone knows that the fun dress up days and events at work can lead to some hilarious moments! Don’t forget to record the fun and post your pictures on social media for all to see!
