When I first saw a picture of a baby wearing a Beyonce-inspired lace front wig — this was back in December of 2009 — I found myself disturbed by the idea. Mostly, because the mother said, “It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” which I thought was ridiculous. One of our commenters described the look as “a shrunken head with a baby’s body still attached,” an incredibly accurate description. After my indignation wore off, I found myself returning to the picture many times the following week and asking myself: Why is it wrong put a wig on a baby? I couldn’t really come up with a solid reason. Keep reading »
This is a story about babies in wigs! My most favorite topic there is. As I mentioned previously, if I ever have a baby, it will be made to wear a variety of wigs, depending on my/its mood. I don’t care if you think that’s strange, it’s what I’ll need to do to ensure that I am the best parent I can be. Anyhow, I am here to tell you about what is being called an “epic baby hair scandal.” The very best kind of scandal there is!
The blog Mommy Shorts held a photo contest for “Most Epic Head of Baby Hair,” and the winner, Layla, dubbed “Baby Annette Funicello,” was accused by sore loser mommies on Facebook of wearing a wig. Layla’s mother was outraged by the accusation and took to the social media site to defend her baby’s epic hair. Keep reading »
Every day, The Frisky staff gets packages in the mail filled with publicity goodies like books, makeup, magazines. But this week there was a game changer in the morning post: WIGS. Someone sent us four wigs from Tabitha Coffey, Daisy Fuentes, and Sherri Shepherd’s wig lines. Naturally we tried all the hairpieces on — sometimes multiple wigs at once — and snapped pics for a very special edition of What Are We Wigging Today?
We think we look very glamorous. Don’t you agree?
Everyone pales in comparison to Nicki Minaj when it comes to wigs and weaves. Even the eccentric Lady Gaga seems tame in the hair department when it comes to decadent, ridiculous and show stopping weaves. We’d like to take just a few moments to acknowledge the epicness of this woman’s hair. Read more …
WIGS, the number one YouTube channel for scripted dramas, is back with a new series called “Kendra,” about a nurse (played by Sarah Jones) who attends to patients after they’ve come out of surgery. In the “twilight room,” as it’s called, Kendra becomes privy to many of her patients’ biggest secrets as they wake from sedation and look to getting back their regular lives. Check out the first episode (of eight) above and check back with WIGS YouTube channel for more!
Watching this first episode of “Kendra” got me thinking about just how many TV shows have been or are set in hospitals or focus on the various aspects of the medical field. Sexy doctors and hard-working nurses, with both good and bad bedside manners, are a staple on the small screen. After the jump, a brief overview in charticle form of the best and worst medical dramas and comedies on TV… Keep reading »
It was just yesterday that I was sitting at my desk at The Frisky office, going on and on about how much I love Britney Spears and debating out loud which of her songs is my favorite: “Toxic” or “Slave 4 U.” Lucky apparently still has a girl crush on Brit, because they’ve put her on their December cover, an interesting choice considering Britney is known for many things, but making good shopping decisions is not one of them.
Anyway, Britney looks lovely on the cover, to be sure, but she also looks a bit overly photoshopped in the face — and what in the helllllllll is on her head? Why is Britney wearing a wig? Did she shave her head again? And why is it so obviously a wig, anyway? She — and Lucky! — surely have enough moolah between the two of them to get something more realistic than discarded Barbie hair. I realized I should be grateful that Brit has evolved from the sad series of weaves she wore during “the rough years,” but still, this gives me a sadz. Can’t Britney just be allowed to rock her own hair? Lord knows I would love to know what it actually looks like.
