National Wig Out Day

Have you ever wanted to dye your hair a different color or try out a new hairstyle, but were too scared to take the risk? Well, today is your opportunity to experiment. It’s National Wig Out Day! This celebration is similar to Halloween, but the focus is just on wigs.

Wig Out Day was invented in 2006 by Kate and Alice Clark. The sisters were able to inspire the residents of Bellingham, Washington to go to work wearing all different types of crazy wigs and then gather downtown at the end of the day for a party. Since then, Wig Out Day has grown and spread throughout the nation.

So go ahead and stop by your local wig shop or shop for wigs online. Your wig can be anything from a mullet to a 70’s style afro. Whatever you decide to wear on your head, just be sure to Wig Out!

May 24, 2013 is National Wig Out Day. It’s a holiday always celebrated on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend when you can be anyone you want to be by donning a wig that isn’t even close to your normal hair color or style.

 

The holiday was invented in 2006 in Bellingham, Washington by sisters Kate and Alice Clark. They wanted to see friends wear all different kinds of wigs to work that day, then gather downtown after work to celebrate. It took off so well in Bellingham that it quickly spread across the country.

 

This is the day when you have permission to wear any hairstyle you’ve considered trying but never had the nerve. Have you always wanted to be a blonde? A brunette? A red head? Now is the time to wear a wig for a day that will let you see how you like it. You can also try out new hairstyles and haircuts you might not have the nerve to try on your real hair. Or, if you’ve always had stick straight hair and wanted wavy curls, you can try those on the wig you are wearing.

 

Bellingham’s celebration includes a Wig Walk parade around town, a Wig Out Contest, and a party with a group photo taken. That way there is documented evidence of who was wearing what wig on any given year.

 

If you live elsewhere, your town may not have these same events, but you can start your own event and promote it by posting on Facebook, Twitter or other social media. Invite all your friends, coworkers and relatives and tell them to invite everyone they know. It won’t take long for it to grow into a big wigged out party.
