Wig anxiety is a real thing and it can manifest in a couple of different ways.
- A very common manifestation of wig anxiety that is particularly common among new wig wearers is the concern that everyone knows you’re wearing a wig. This is not true.

(And if anyone does notice, they tend to be fellow wig wearers, which is actually kind of a cool way to meet friends and share styling tips.)
- A less talked about, but just as common, form of wig anxiety is the concern that there is A PERFECT wig out there somewhere but you just haven’t found it yet and this PERFECT wig is the magical solution to all of your problems.
