Celebrities' hair always looks flawless when they enter the red carpet and be sure that some of them are hiding their natural hair under wigs or giving it more volume with extensions. We all know that celebrities wear wigs. It makes sense! Wigs can offer a variety of styles, and colors that can add a lot to the final look of a celebrity.
Some celebrities who wear wigs may be well-known to you, but others have languished unnoticed for years! You know that Beyonce, Rihanna and Amber Rose all wear wigs and hair extensions. But there are so many other celebrities out there that have a passion for wigs. Let’s reveal some of them:
10 Celebrities Who Often Wear Wigs:

Katie Holmes: Does anyone NOT know who is Katie Holmes? If you know Tom Crise or Dawson’s creek, you probably know her! Whenever a celebrity shows up on an event with a short bob fringe and sometime later with much longer strands and no fringe at all, then you know that she is wearing a wig.
