Wolverine Expected to Spark Halloween Demand for Face Wigs

As The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman’s facial hair and ripped body may not provoke a return to the impressive sideburns and imposing mustaches of yesteryear; but his hirsute appearance in Hollywood’s latest take on the conflicted Marvel Comics superhero is expected to spark Halloween demand for Wolverine Wigs &
Wig Salons , Costume Beard, Mustache and Goatee Collection.

Compared to women, men’s hair styles don’t offer as many options for personal statement; but facial hair is another story. Beard and mustache style and length have changed styles nearly as often as women’s hemlines. On its blog The GQ Eye, the men’s style magazine recently posted photos from a 1968 article on face wigs.

Sideburns and Leisure Suits

Artificial sideburns, mustaches and beards are largely costume items these days; but back in the swinging days of the late 1960s and early ‘70s elaborate sideburns and face-chewing ‘staches were quite popular with the leisure suit crowd. As GQ notes, when less enlightened employers failed to appreciate hairy-faced employees, groovy men turned to face wigs to indulge their personal style on the weekends.

Styles change. While male facial hair is still popular, sideburn lengths have receded over the years and neatly trimmed goatees, mustaches and beards are the current fashion standard. Today at Wig Salon, sales of mustaches and beards are most likely to be for theatrical or costume purposes; but you never know. When correctly applied, typically with special lightweight glue called spirit gum, facial hair looks like you grew it yourself! Only your barber can tell the difference.
