The word is out on Christie Brinkley's new Hair2Wear Wig Collection! The blue-eyed, bouncy haired supermodel may have sold everything from Diet Coke to face lotion in the past, but she has made a serious mane move. Click through the slideshow to see the beauty model and a few creations from her range!
Christie, who broke the news of her partnership with the retailer, Hair2Wear in September, offers up a diverse 25-item collection of wigs, hairpieces, clip-ons, accessories and tools. Her assortment is designed to be fun and easy to wear, making a woman feel ultra-feminine. In a day and age where gals throw on wigs like it's nobody's business, the famous face recognizes that the hair game has changed.
"There used to be an association of, 'Oh, it's fake, and I would never add fake hair to my head,'" explained the entrepreneur and mom to The Cut. "But I think that has changed, because now people know more about what goes on behind the scenes at fashion shoots and runways. I've spent 40 years in the industry, so I'm used to it. But people are starting to realize that they're able to change their hair like they can change their outfit. And it's fun!"
The talented beauty maven's wig styles include lace-front and heat-friendly synthetic items, running the gamut from light ash blonde to deep brown. The choices vary in lengths from super-short pixies, to mid-length bobs, to long curls. One of our favorites is "Cover Shot," a shoulder-touching, razor-tapered cut made with Excelle fiber that makes any face look slimmer. "Photo Perfect," a full, thick layered style with a side monofilament part, is another option that tickles our fancy.
The line also has braided headbands, a Natural Tone Hair Wrap and ponytail, a side-fringe hairpiece and 16'' extensions. Shoppers can also use the range's tools from a pic-comb, to styling brush, to a wig cap and stand. And for those having trouble choosing a wig or hairpiece hue, try the H2W Color Rings featuring hair swatches in all the range's offered shades. The rings allow you to choose the right hair color to complement your skin tone.
Wearing the different options from Christie's collection is about convenience, not necessity. "No matter what you're doing - whether you're a stay-at-home mom, or a doctor, or in the entertainment world - the one thing we all have in common is that none of us have enough time," said Christie. "We're always looking for ways to spend more time with our family, our friends, our children. I look at this [collection] as a real shortcut."
The styles and accessories, priced from $5 to $249, are available for purchase online at Hair2Wear. Wigging out? Check out the wig and clip-ons video tutorials and tell us your thoughts with a note!
