Afro Wigs

Your retro or clown costume will look even more outrageous when you add an afro wig. We carry a wide variety of styles and colors for men, women and kids. Afro is the name of a hairstyle worn mostly by people with a kinky hair texture, and it was most popular in the 1960s and 1970s. People with straight or curly hair can also create afro hairstyles by using styling products and combing their hair away from the scalp. The hairstyle sticks out from the head, and has a rounded shape. The name comes from the term Afro-American, and it can also be called the natural.

Before the 60s, African Americans often styled their hair similarly to the way white people did. Even though many had afro-textured hair, they braided and straightened it. During and after the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the African American community grew stronger, and this led to a greater appreciation of African beauty. Untreated hairstyles like the afro were symbols of black pride. They sent a rebellious message similar to the one sent by the long hair hippies wore.

Several famous people like Jimi Hendrix, political activist Angela Davis, and members of the Jackson 5 and The Supremes had afros. Afros are still around today, in both natural and wig form, and they are even worn by celebrities like Lauryn Hill, Macy Gray and Ludacris.
