While straight wigs may be an easy go-to, curly units are our first choice when we’re trying to spice things up. There’s just something about curly tresses that makes us feel so free and unstoppable. Unlike straight hair that requires knowing your way around heat tools, the best curly hair wigs, for the most part, only require your hands, the right products, and a little patience.
You can wear it wet for a super defined finish. You can also puff or comb out the kinks and rock a 70s disco-inspired fro, similar to Zendaya’s 2017 Met Gala look—the possibilities are truly endless. Though I’ll be the first to say curly hair requires a lot of maintenance (wig or not), the style looks so gorgeous that it’s worth the extra time and effort.
The bigger the hair, the closer to heaven, right? Ahead, some of the best curly wigs that will have you singing from the highest mountain like the curly hair icon herself, Miss Diana Ross.
