Because Barbie Can Be Anything, Women Can Be Anything

Have you seen the new Barbie movie yet? Whether you’re a mega fan, lusting after that nostalgic pinkness or just love a good film, then it’s a no brainer, of course you’re going to see it! We loved it and judging by Barbie-mania everyone else has too!

At the 1959 American International Toy Fair in New York, an 11.5-inch plastic figure with improbably bombshell proportions made her debut. Barbie, the iconic doll created by Ruth Handler has not only captured the hearts of millions of children but has also left an indelible mark on the world of fashion. Barbie has become a true iconic fashion symbol and adored by fashionistas for decades, with her impeccable style, endless wardrobe, and evolving persona, Barbie has been a fashion trailblazer, inspiring designers and shaping the way we perceive and embrace fashion today.

The fun and versatility of wearing a wig allows you to channel your inner Barbie and experiment with various looks without committing to a permanent change. Whether you’re gearing up to watch the movie, off to a party, or just looking to add a dash of glamour to your everyday life, styling like Barbie with a wig is a fantastic way to express your style and boost your confidence. In this blog, we’ll explore some fabulous wigs to help you rock that Barbie-esque look!

Choose the Perfect Premium Synthetic Wig

Before diving into styling, it’s essential to pick the right wig that complements your face shape and skin tone. There are various shades of blonde, ranging from platinum to honey to sandy blonde which also come in endless pre-cut styles which will give you that famous iconic Barbie instant look. But, Barbie hasn’t always been blonde with many of her styles incorporating brunette, red and even black hair! Plus it isn’t always long and wavy for Barbie, with bobs, ponytails, braids, slick-backs, crimps and more making an appearance in her style legacy! Let’s delve into a few options…

The Barbie Bob

Simple and beautiful, the Barbie bob is a straight short cut style that oozes chic sass. Barbie opted for a light pink bob on occasion so we think our style Lotus is close enough to get that Barbie Bob look!

Classic Barbie Loose Curl

One of our favourites, the Barbie Loose Curl! This style is simple, relaxed but super glam! Barbie’s luscious curls are a prominent feature of her signature style. We think our latest style Waikiki hits the mark for that perfect instant Barbie Loose Curl look without having to do anything at all other find a tumbler glass big enough to sit pretty in! Haha!

The Barbie Bun

A long haired wig is perfect for this style, especially when you have one that’s got orange tones like Sunbeam. All you need to do is create your perfect high bun and make it pop with a statement hair accessory. We love the oversized pearls that Barbie is showing off here!

Or if you like your Barbie Bun to be more relaxed and casual then we think Eliza is the perfect style to achieve a Barbie Messy Bun look easily!

Becoming Barbie

To complete your Barbie transformation, focus on your makeup. Barbie is known for her flawless complexion, rosy cheeks, and bold lips. Opt for a dewy foundation, pink blush, and dramatic eyelashes to enhance your features. Don’t forget to choose a bright and playful lip colour that matches your wig and overall outfit.

We hope you found this little blog fun and useful! Now all is left to do is pick out that outfit, style your swig, start up the engine on your pink 1956 Corvette and head to the nearest drive-in to watch the movie!
