Wigs that show your state of hair and state of mind

I really think wig-makers/shops should automatically provide their wig-wearers with at least three wigs, all in the same style, but at different stages of growth. Thus avoiding that obvious giveaway - hair that NEVER grows.

They may need to be labelled (inside!)...

1. Just Cut ('Oh, I like the way you've had your hair done!' 'Really? It isn't what I asked for'

2. Just getting to where you like it.

3. Overgrown Mess.

This would be order to avoid embarrassing mistakes.

Perhaps they could come with a calendar chart marked off at suitable intervals as an indication of when to change wigs. Of course, to be ultra realistic, the wig-wearer would only wear wig number 2 for a couple of days in the cycle, while wearing wigs 1 and 3 for a month each either side of 2.

As additions to the range, there could be wigs such as 'so greasy I can't even answer the door today', 'I thought I'd try that new thickening shampoo but it worked a little too well' , 'ultra visible cow's lick day' etc

3 stages - baked but not obscure: Terry Wogan has been doing this for years - even in his prime time talkshow days.

realistic? - never baked! Half? Not even quarter!
