Whether it’s your favourite reality television star or an iconic legend adored by millions of fans throughout the ages, something about a particular celebrity look can draw you in. The glamour of the stars – whether they be from Hollywood, Nashville, or elsewhere – has a special allure that many people want to capture and emulate.
You may just want a basic celebrity style so that you can update your look to the latest fashions and trends with the right celebrity style wigs, or you might be looking at becoming a professional impersonator. In case you were wondering:
- There are about 20,000 celebrity impersonators in the U.S., which is the biggest market for impersonators.
- Impersonators can make between $500 to $1500 per appearance by hosting events or having parties where they appear as their celebrity look-alike.
- Some of the most popular impersonated celebrities are Elvis Presley, Cher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicholson, Dolly Parton, Madonna, and Celine Dion.
Whether that’s your goal, or you just want to adopt a certain look to your own sense of style, 3rd Dimension has some recommendations for you. Our focus is creating exceptional wigs and celebrity hair pieces that can help you emulate the celebrities that you admire the most.
Steps to Getting the Celebrity Style Wigs You Want
1) Pick the celebrity whose style you admire.
If you have not already decided who you wish to match, then it’s important to do your homework to make the right decision. For some people, the choice is obvious: who do people say you look like? If you are constantly being mistaken for a particular celebrity, then you will not have to do as much work to look like him or her. It may just be a matter of getting the right celebrity style wigs to complement your look.
In other cases, some people have a particular love of a celebrity, particularly for legends such as Dolly Parton or Elvis Presley, and work as tribute artists. In those instances, special attention to detail is required. Otherwise, it may just be a particular aspect of a celebrity you enjoy in your entertainment, such as Kim Kardashian’s signature flowing tresses or Lady GaGa’s outrageous style.
Regardless of your focus, it’s important to style yourself correctly, with the right costuming or outfits that will be flattering on you and emphasize your similarity to your chosen celeb.
2) Get the makeup just right.
Celebrities are well-known for setting trends, being on the cutting edge of current looks and fashions. Makeup is a big part of achieving that look. Whether you want a truly authentic appearance, or you just want to add a specific makeup trick to your repertoire, spending time with makeup professional can help you achieve the look you want.
3) Find or design the right wig to complete the look.
After you have your clothing and makeup just right, it’s time for the crown jewel in any celebrity emulation: the hair.
As most stylists will tell you, celebrities use any number of hair products, ranging from basic styling to elaborate extensions and wigs. Many also alter their hair through chemical means, making it curly or straight, and changing the colour frequently. This can be impractical for many people for a variety of reasons.
Frequent manipulation can leave hair unhealthy and brittle. It can also be difficult to achieve the exact look you want with your natural hair, and any errors you make will remain until the hair grows back out, which can take months or years, depending on the length.
Human hair growth varies across individuals, though the race is a significant contributing factor. A Caucasian person’s hair tends to grow at a rate of 5 inches per year, while African individuals generally have a rate of 4 inches per year. Asian individuals tend to have a faster rate, at 6 inches per year.
This can add up to a long time to correct a mistake with your natural hair. A simpler, more versatile solution is getting the right celebrity style wigs.
When working with a company like 3rd Dimension Studios, you can often get a wide range of different looks so you can emulate your favourite celebrity in any number of ways. Do you want Jennifer Lawrence’s natural blond locks, but also want to imitate her black-haired character Katniss from The Hunger Games? What about the close-cropped look of Charlize Theron’s Furiosa from Mad Max, but the celebrity’s natural, multi-layered golden tresses?
With the right celebrity hair pieces, transitioning between iconic looks can be much easier, and you can have your wig designer make changes and tweaks based on what you want. You then do not have to go through the process of changing your own hair whenever your favourite celeb decides to update his or her look.
At 3rd Dimension Studios, we have years of experience in designing and creating celebrity style wigs. Our wig master has more than three decades of experience and has been creating and styling hair systems and tribute wigs since the beginning.
