Adventures In Fake Celebrity Hair: Naomi's Pretty Pony and Rihanna's Pink Wig

Posted on

It’s apparently Noteworthy Fake Hair Week in Hollywood, and everybody who’s anybody is celebrating. We’ve had Nina Dobrev’s blonder, fuller mane, Blake Lively’s truly outrageous braid, Jennifer Lawrence’s luxurious beard — and now Naomi Watts and Rihanna are joining the party with their most recent locks looks.

First up is Naomi Watts, who normally sports a shoulder-grazing cut, but switched things up for the Calvin Klein Women in Film party, where she glammed up a simple Calvin Klein Collection frock with a major Bulgari necklace and a flowing side pony, courtesy of the magic of Hollywood. To help the extensions blend, her stylist wrapped a section around the base of the pony and twisted the top of the do for a perfectly coiffed, glam and girlie look.

PHOTOS: Barely-there vs. bold makeup — which way do these stars look best?

On the total opposite end of the spectrum, Rihanna went for “as wild as possible” at the L.A. Clippers game, wearing a pixie wig in cotton candy pink. She played up the “cartoon superhero” vibe with perfectly stenciled brows, a glossy pout and a silver choker. We love that the wig was perfectly cut to highlight her features, which takes the look from over-the-top to sassy and sexy. But of course, Rihanna already has an advanced degree in pulling off out-there hairdos, so this one was no sweat.

What do you think of the stars’ new looks? Do you ever experiment with wigs or extensions for fun?
