In the show business, donning wigs for various occasions is not a big deal. Many of us may not have even noticed when a celebrity appeared in a wig. The finesse makes it hard to spot a fake hair.

 3. Keira Knightley

The Pride & Prejudice actress didn’t shy away from sharing her personal life experience that forced her to don wigs. She shared that dying her hair for various movies over the years ruined the texture of her hair and led to massive hair fall. Now, she has started depending on wigs for her roles.

 4. Beyonce Knowles

Beyonce is so stranger to wigs, for she is often seen wearing them. Her long and wavy hair is, in fact, a wig as her real-life hair in pretty short. She created a huge buzz when fans spotted lace on her forehead indicating that it was a wig.

 5. Ariana Grande

The singer once revealed that bleaching her hair so many times had destroyed its quality and volume. Since then she has been using wigs and extensions but as ponytails. The singer rarely lets her hair down for their ruined condition.

According to various reports and sources, the handsome actor started balding years back. His older pictures suggest that he started losing hair about 20 years ago. If we go with this theory then the dark and wavy hair that he is known for could either be fake or a hair transplant.

 7. Robert Pattinson

You must be wondering would a perfectly handsome man like Robert require a wig. His hair and eyes are some of his best features that wooed us since his Cedric Diggory days in Harry Potter. But when the Twilight star was called for reshoots for Breaking Dawn, he resorted to wig as his head was shaven. Even though his fans were surprised at his newly-shaven head, he pulled off the look pretty well.

 8. Emilia Clarke

Be it brown or blonde, Emilia Clarke looks snazzy in every hairstyle and color. But it isn’t a surprise that her role in Game of Thrones as Daenerys Targaryen required her to put on an icy-blonde wig. Even without the color, it would have been an evident wig due to the numerous thick braids.

 9. Kiernan Shipka
