On any given day, you’re likely to find a photo on Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram of a Kardashian or Jenner sporting a totally new hairdo replete with a major color change and a gasp-worthy cut. Kim loves to go from dark to platinum blond overnight, Kylie is the king of sporting crayon box colors and Khloé loves to go long in an instant. Sure, the reality starlets are privy to the best of the best when it comes to their hair. But just how are they getting these major style changes—and they usually don’t keep the look for more than a few days—so quick? While extensions are often part of the equation, more times than not what they’re really wearing is a wig.

Major color changes—from dark to light and back to dark—are so damaging on the hair. Not to mention that most times, they can take hours upon hours and multiple trips to the salon to get the color just right. A wig causes zero damage to the hair and can be put on in minutes and then taken right off.
Kylie (as well as Kim) has fessed up to wearing wigs, especially when her hair is a shade of green or blue. On her website, she professed her love for dying her hair, but the damage it caused to her strands forced her to find another way to get the look she craved without harming her hair. She enlisted the help of professional wig maker Tokyo Stylez to custom-craft her ever-growing collection.
But, these wigs aren’t your average run-of-the-mill ones that you’ll find in a local costume of wig shop. They’re made to fit the KarJenners’ heads perfectly and are cut to give a natural look. And of course, they don’t come cheap—their couture wigs can cost between $650 and $4,000 or more.
