Celebrities are constantly switching up their hair looks. They go from waist-length dark hair to short platinum blond pixies to rainbow hair, all within a matter of days. But these days they're getting a lot smarter about how they change their hair. Instead of chopping off their locks or bleaching their hair or going pastel pink on a whim (and damaging it in the process), now they're turning to stylish wigs.

Honestly, wigs are probably the smartest way to transform your look in a flash without the regrets or the damage. And thanks to stars like Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and Jennifer Lopez, there's definitely more acceptance of wigs. They have become rather trendy--especially in Hollywood.

While most of us would spend hundreds of dollars at the salon for a new look, these stars just keep different options of hair colors and lengths to wear for the day. Some stars even go as far as matching their wigs to their outfits, and that's a level of glamorous most people won't ever experience. 

The wig installations have become so next level that it's often even difficult to tell between real hair and wigs. Some celebrity hairstylists have mastered the art of applying wigs and making it look like it the star's own hair. That's talent. It's so easy to transform your look by simply changing up your hair, and these stars do it flawlessly and they totally love it. Here are 20 celebs who are all about that wig life.
