Brilliant or Bizzare? Company Makes Baby Wigs for Bald Baby Girls
Bald is beautiful. Especially on a baby. Or is it?
One company seems to think bald babies need hair, at least based on the product it’s selling: Baby wigs.
Yes, that’s wigs. For babies.
BabyBangs claims on its website to be the first and only ready-to-wear “hairstyle headbands” ever made.
“Our patent pending HAIR+band accessory combination allows baby girls (with little or no hair at all) the opportunity to have a beautifully realistic HAIR style in a SNAP!!” the description reads.
Lisa R. Campbell, the creator of BabyBangs, told ABC News the product is “geared towards toddlers and little girls who have not been blessed with any substantial hair growth of their own as of yet.”
But not every mom thinks their bald baby girl needs hair.
Sarah True’s daughter, Phoebe, had no hair until she was about 2.
“I never would have put a wig on her. I think bald babies are the cutest,” she said. “I didn’t even do headbands.”
BabyBangs are hair and headband all in one. The “hair” is made from “silky strands of Monofiber Kanekalon,” according to the website. They come “pre-customized & size appropriate, cut, styled and ready for immediate wear. The wispy hair strands have been arranged in the cutest most adorable elfish coiffure!” They cost $29.95 each.
