Having a bad hair day? Don’t feel like showering? Want to look awesome in 10 seconds? Got a spot of alopecia? Is your hair thinning? There are a multitude of reasons why a wig is a good idea, and it appears that society is finally catching on to the genius of a wig.

The global hair wigs and extensions market is expected to grow from $5.8 billion in 2021 to $13.3 billion by 2026 at a pace of 13 percent annually. And according to a new report, the entertainment and fashion industry uses wigs so often that it is the force behind much of the growth. Perhaps we should thank the character Moira Rose and her frequently displayed wig stash on Schitt’s Creek. Or maybe we owe it to Katy Perry, Beyoncé or Dolly Parton.

Here are fantastic wigs at every price point.

VCKOVCKO Natural Wavy Wig

Want a totally new look for less than $25? You can’t beat this. We rocked bangs for the first time on a Monday, and then went for a pink wig on a Tuesday because … why not? The cap size is adjustable so it can fit most head sizes, and it comes with a wig cap. $24 at

Waves HD Frontal Wig

This company sells bundles, frontals and entire wigs. This one is a lace frontal wig (that means you can part it wherever you want) made using raw Vietnamese hair, and you can bleach it if you want to lighten the color a bit. It is a thick wig expected to last over a year with proper care. $900 at

AISI Queens Long Wavy Wig

This is for anyone who wants the perfect balayage look for a total steal (and if you don’t like it, you can just return it gratis, as it’s sold on Amazon Prime). The synthetic hair is soft and not shiny, and it looks shockingly like real hair. $31 at

Raquel Welch Upstage Synthetic Lace Front Wig

This style is available in nearly every shade of natural coloring. As long as you like the style (very work-friendly), you’re good. It’s the perfect modern bob, which is made from synthetic hair with a hand-tied monofilament cap and a ready-to-wear lace front — offering a totally natural look. It’s heat-friendly, so you can use your styling tools. It’s available in two sizes: petite and large. Try it for 30 days, and if you don’t love it you can return it free. Starts at $424 at

Natural Wig with Bangs

Is there anything you can’t get from Shein? For just $17 (or less, if you stack a few coupon codes), you get a synthetic wig that feels and looks as natural as can be. Make it look even more like you by pinning it back or adding a few curls. Be sure to brush it like you would your real locks so it doesn’t get knotted. $17 at

Carina Blonde Balayage Remy Human Hair Lace Top Wig

This is one of the least expensive human-hair wigs that has a lace top we’ve discovered. And it looks like the hair of our dreams: thick, textured and soft. You may return it within 30 days for a 10 percent cancellation fee. $899 at

Claire Mono Top Remy Human Hair Topper

If your hair is thin or thinning, and you just basically want to add more to what you already have … then this is the perfect solution. It’s human hair that clips in securely to your hair, and it comes in nearly every natural hair color shade imaginable. Designed to stay in place no matter what, this will give your head an instant boost of thick, dense hair. It’s a total game changer. $449 at

HD Lace Malaysian Body Wave 4x4 Closure Wig

This company — Mayvenn — offers something totally different. When you purchase three bundles (groups of hair that are around $60 each, meant to enhance the hair you already have), they’ll match you with a stylist near you who will sew and style your hair into a custom look (this doesn’t apply to the wig we chose). So, you have many options. $210 at
