New year, new wigs! 

Chrissy Teigen, Emily Ratajkowski, Lady Gaga and more celebs have turned to faux strands to experiment with audacious colors, lengths and styles.

While wigs were once deemed taboo, these A-list stars made the hair pieces not only acceptable, but trendy too. "It's so liberating that wearing a wig isn’t as secretive as it was before," celebrity hairstylist Angela Meadows explained.
